  • "Owner very friendly and helpful."

    The cottage stunning, is the best that we have stayed in so far. I would say the photo of cottage doesn't truly portray how lovely it is. The scenery in this part of world is stunning as yr right in the North York Moors . Can go straight out from cottage for walks. Has it own courtyard for parking and your own little garden .

  • "My holiday at Stone Cross was just perfect."

    The cottage was sparkling clean & furnished to a high standard and well equipped and so comfortable. The area was so peaceful with lovely walks on the doorstep and the location was great for exploring the North Yorkshire Moors & Coast. I would definitely want to go back again and would highly recommend Stone Cross. The hosts Jim & Judi were fantastic if you needed to know anything they were there, otherwise they left you alone. The welcome gift on arrival of wine, flowers and milk was a lovely surprise.

  • "A great cottage the ideal size for us as a couple (and a dog)."

    The decor, equipment and cleanliness was up to the high standard we expect from Sykes. Location is wonderful with great walks from right outside the door and moor and coast nearby. Judi the owner was very helpful in making the small enclosed garden area fully dog proof, and had provided a bottle of wine, milk and ingredients for the bread maker on arrival. Be aware that the spiral stairs are open steps which our dog wouldn’t climb, so needed lifting up to the lounge area.

  • "We've had the most wonderful week in this gorgeous, cosy little cottage."

    Its perfect and everything had been thought of. We arrived to find some lovely roses and a bottle of wine. Milk in the fridge for a welcome cuppa after a long journey! The walk in shower and firm comfy bed really made this the best cottage we have stayed in with Sykes and I've already recommended Stone Cross to others. Its in a lovely little village and makes a great base for exploring the surrounding areas. Hutton-le-Hole was perfect for a delicious breakfast at the Barn Tearooms. (Dog friendly). All in all a perfect week!

  • "Loved the cottage which was on north Yorkshire Moors national park with sheep roaming around the village."

    It's beautiful place and cause we're rubbish at following satnav we still managed to drive past the farm. We rang and they came out to find us. Such a lovely place perfect for a relaxing break. There's so much to see and do in the area with rolling countryside and picturesque villages. The cottage was so cosy with a mezzanine floor where the sofa and TV were. Great to relax there at the end of the day watching the moonlight through the skylight. We'd definitely go back and recommend to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

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.
