Egton Bridge 0.5 miles.
This exceptional, stone detached cottage lies on the edge of the small peaceful village of Egton Bridge, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park.
If you are wanting a luxurious break, surrounded by magnificent countryside, yet only eight miles from Whitby, then this is the perfect gem for you.
Beautifully appointed to the highest of standards, the property has been thoughtfully furnished and decorated, that would please the most discerning guest, but with the enhancement of modern technology, including Smart TVs with Sky and cosy underfloor heating throughout.
It retains much of the traditional charm and character, from the beamed ceilings to the flagged floors and aesthetic cast iron range.
The spacious and elegant sitting room has comfortable sofas set around a warming woodburning stove, with exterior picture doors opening onto the garden; a lovely room to relax in after a busy day exploring.
The country-style kitchen is most delightful, with granite worktops, a Belfast sink and an island bar with boiling water on tap!
This warm and friendly room provides a wonderful sociable space, where families can gather around the table and sit and chat over a tasty meal cooked on the AGA - a new experience for many!
Each of the four bedrooms has been tastefully and individually styled, with fresh, crisp bedding and sumptuous mattresses to sink into, after a day's walking.
With one bedroom on the ground floor with an en-suite wet room and another en-suite upstairs, guests are well catered for.
The gardens to this superb property are equally as enchanting, with an array of quintessential English cottage plants and a sheltered sitting area overlooking the stream, with breathtaking views over the countryside.
There is also an external games room in the garage where you will find a table tennis table, ideal for keeping everyone entertained on rainy days!
A few minutes’ walk down the hill brings you to a popular local inn, where you can enjoy a drink in the gardens or dine in the restaurant.
Walkers and cyclists will revel in the trails and footpaths that abound, including the old toll road to Grosmont and the Coast to Coast long distance walk that runs through the village.
A must for both young and old is a trip on the North York Moors Steam Railway at Grosmont, that winds its way through the moorland to the market town of Pickering.
The historic port of Whitby is just a few minutes’ drive, with its narrow alleyways, cobbled market square and pretty harbour.
Take a stroll along the pier, climb up the 199 steps to the Abbey or spend the day on the long, sandy beaches.
With restaurants, cafes and quaint tea rooms for refreshments, you are spoilt for choice.
A memorable property, combining comfort with class.
