An enchanting mid-terrace cottage, set in an elevated position overlooking the village green in Hutton-le-Hole, the heart of the North York Moors National Park.
Surrounded by hills and moorland, it is perfect for walking, cycling and exploring the spectacular scenery, but with easy access to pretty market towns and many nearby attractions.
Comfortable and homely, the property retains much charm and character, with exposed timbers, sash windows and boarded doors with Suffolk latches.
The spacious farmhouse-style kitchen has a lovely warming Rayburn, complete with fireside chairs, with the dining table in the middle - creating a very sociable space to enjoy family meals together.
In the sitting room is a lovely warming woodburning stove to toast the toes by, and stunning views over the green, while steep cottage stairs lead up to the two bedrooms, both with fine views over the village beck.
To the rear of the cottage, across a shared driveway, is an enclosed lawned garden, providing the perfect opportunity for dining alfresco!
From the doorstep, there are a network of public footpaths through beautiful countryside and moorland, whilst the less energetic will delight in strolling around this exceptionally pretty village.
Close by are the historic market towns of Kirkbymoorside and Pickering, with weekly market days, quaint tea rooms and traditional village inns.
Visit the castle at Pickering, or take a nostalgic trip on the steam railway, that winds its way to Grosmont village near Whitby.
With the coastal towns of Whitby and Scarborough within easy reach, Primrose Hill Farmhouse makes an ideal base for a relaxing holiday at any time of year.
About the location
Kirkbymoorside 3.5 miles; Pickering 8 miles.
Situated in the heart of the North York Moors National Park and handily placed for touring both Moors and Coast, the idyllic little village of Hutton-le-Hole is widely accepted as the prettiest in the area. Charming stone built cottages cluster around undulating village greens, with a stream (Hutton Beck) passing through. It's the perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by - but don't be surprised to find sheep grazing next to you! The village is home to the Ryedale Folk Museum, a 'hands on' museum of local life and tradition, which includes a reconstructed Elizabethan Manor House, farm buildings and craft shops. The village also has a complex of craft shops, workshops, tea rooms and gift shops. Nearby the attractive old market town of Kirkbymoorside lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, in between the towns of Helmsley and Pickering. It's a charming place with a slightly 'old fashioned feel' and visitors will find plenty to keep them occupied in the many shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. There is even an 18 hole course for golf enthusiasts and Pickering is the base of the North York Moors Steam Railway - a 'must do' day out for all visitors to the area. Both the City of York and the Yorkshire Coast are within easy driving distance.
