The property

A semi-detached stone cottage, on the edge of the charming village of Lockton, just five miles from the market town of Pickering in North Yorkshire.

Surrounded by the most stunning scenery in the North York Moors National Park, this delightful cottage is perfect for walking, cycling and exploring the many attractions this beautiful area has to offer.

Retaining much charm and character, there is a terracotta tiled open plan living area, with a modern kitchen, dining area and comfortable sofas set around a cosy woodburner.

With exposed beams, there is a lovely homely feel to the cottage.

Upstairs are two pretty bedrooms, both with pleasant outlooks, together with a family bathroom.

Outside, there are front and rear patios, so you can take in the sun amid a tranquil and peaceful setting, with exceptional moorland views.

The sleepy village of Lockton has a traditional village green, with a good network of footpaths leading from it, while nearby Levisham offers a local inn serving real ales where perhaps you can enjoy some steam train spotting.

Popular Pickering caters for all needs, with quaint tea rooms, restaurants, independent shops and pubs.

Walk up to the castle ruins, visit the Beck Isle Museum and loiter in the restored Victorian steam train terminus, with authentic memorabilia and extensive shop.

The immediate vicinity has much to offer, with stately homes and gardens to visit, including Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall and Duncombe Park, the pretty market towns of Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside and Byland and Rievaulx Abbeys nearby.

Alternatively take a trip to the seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough.

This appealing cottage provides an ideal base for an enjoyable holiday.

About the location

LOCKTON

An unspoilt rural village of great charm, boasting a village square, church and even an ancient well. Lockton’s church, St Giles, has a 15th century tower and medieval nave and chancel. Lockton is just 5 miles from Pickering, the charming market town which marks the official gateway to the beautiful North York Moors National Park. Attractions include the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway where Harry Potter fans can explore some of the locations used in the filming of the Philosopher’s Stone. The Beck Isle Museum with its unique collection of black and white photography and displays of rural life is also worth a visit. The outstanding North York Moors with rolling hills, valleys, rivers and abundant wildlife lead all the way to the beautiful Yorkshire Coast, and the City of York is just over half an hour by car.
