Molly’s Cottage resides within the grounds of Mill Barn, secured within five acres of private land, a beautifully presented holiday let forming part of an old converted Cow Shed in East Knapton near Rillington, North Yorkshire.

This property is ideal for a family or friends, and is perfectly positioned near the small hamlet of East Knapton, between the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds, surrounded by open working countryside.

On arrival, guests will travel down a long sloping gravel drive to arrive at the property where two vehicles can be parked comfortably and hassle-free.

Entering the property, guests will be welcomed into this charming dwelling by a gorgeous sitting room which boasts original wooden beams and vaulted ceilings, perfectly complementing contemporary style living with traditional features.

The space boasts a plush seating area, ideal for resting tired legs and looking out towards the North Yorkshire Moors or curling up to spend the evening catching up on your favourite shows.

A spectacular archway connects the lounge area to the kitchen dining area, which is well equipped, housing a range of contemporary appliances needed to create a tasty home-cooked feast, whilst also providing a great spot to chat at the breakfast bar before the meal is savoured together at the dining table.

The opulent bifold doors allow easy access to the west-facing outdoor space to the rear of the property, where guests can enjoy a glass of fizz as the stars appear overhead.

Outside the property, to the front, is a small seating area to enjoy your morning coffee or to take a minute to relax to breathe in the country air.

Adjacent to the living area you will find a super-king-size (zip/link can be twin on request) and a twin (zip/link can be super-king-size on request), both serviced by en-suite shower rooms with deluxe fixtures and fittings.

Both bedrooms have plentiful storage and hanging space, each with its own character.

For a tranquil day of strolling, head to the National Trust property, Nunnington Hall or Scampston Hall, and discover the magnificent manor homes complete with perfectly-kept gardens for you to wander.

Why not venture into the town of Malton?

The town is known as a top foodie destination with its famous food festival, monthly food market, Malton Cookery School, traditional food shops and ‘Made in Malton’ artisan producers.

For a day beside the seaside, head over to the bustling resort of Scarborough, boasting a lovely beach, a museum, a golf course, an art gallery, harbourside walks and many amenities and attractions within the town itself.

Filey is also home to a luscious sandy beach where you can lie out in the sun before grabbing some traditional fish and chips for supper.
