    It was very well equipped with everything you needed, home from home! There was lots of information left by the owner which was extremely helpful. Kirbymoorside is a lovely village with great pubs and shops. We would definitely recommend this cottage and will be looking into going back again sometime soon.

    Tastefully decorated and well equipped with everything you could possibly need . Really comfy beds and dog friendly too with blanket , towels and bowls supplied . Brilliant location , easy free on street parking . We visited a couple of the nearby pubs - the Kings Head and The George & Dragon , both dog friendly (and people!) and served really tasty food . Will return , we loved our New Year break at Anvil cottage . A real gem in a lovely part of North Yorkshire .

  • "A sweet well positioned cottage with free nearby street parking."

    Clean and comfortable. Larger bath towels or a few extra towels and pillows would be appreciated. Drinking glasses for champagne or sparkling wine would be an added bonus. Netflix or a smart TV which has the provision to access Netflix via customers own account

  • "We fell in love with Anvil cottage ."

    On entering it was bright and airy and spotlessly clean . The flow of the rooms just felt right and we immediately felt at home It was beautifully furnished , very tastefully done with good quality furnishings that far exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was very well equipped for preparing meals . In fact I cannot think of one area where we could suggest an improvement. We stay in UK based cottages 2 or 3 times a year and regularly use Sykes to book . I think this is one of the best we have stayed in . There is no garden but a lovely addition of a table and chairs outside the front if you want to sit with a glass of wine and again , fabulous area with some beautiful flowering pots that are well kept . We had been a bit concerned about parking but after unloading outside there were plenty of roadside spaces and we didnt have a problem finding one when we returned in the evening . Kirbymoorside is a lovely , friendly , welcoming town . We had a drink in all of the pubs and were made most welcome by everyone. It's also an excellent base to explore this part of North Yorkshire . Great pride has been taken in Anvil Cottage by the owners and it shows .Lovely to return at the end of the day . We would love to stay here again and if we return to North Yorkshire it is definitely on the top of our list of cottages we would return to again . 10/10 , its fabulous

About the location


Pickering 6 miles; Helmsley 5 miles.

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 is a charming place, full of Yorkshire character, and is the centre for the local farms and villages. Visitors will find a variety of shops from tea rooms, pubs and restaurants to antique shops, while there is a market day on Wednesday. The excellent walking and magnificent scenery of the National Park are close by, as are the picturesque villages of Hutton-le-Hole and Lastingham. Pickering is the base of the North York Moors Steam Railway - a ‘must do’ day out for all visitors to the area. Castle Howard, York, Whitby and the Yorkshire Coast are within easy driving distance.
