A delightful, mid-terrace corner cottage, in the sleepy village of Marton, midway between the pretty market towns of Kirkbymoorside and Pickering.
Well located for exploring the glorious surrounding countryside, towns and North Yorkshire’s Heritage Coast, this comfortable Marton cottage is a wonderful choice for walkers, friends and families alike.
Furnished and decorated in a traditional style, this period Marton cottage has a homely feel with character, low-beamed ceilings and an inviting open fire in the sitting room, which is a joy to snuggle beside on cooler evenings.
The spacious, rustic-style kitchen in this Marton cottage has a dining area at one end and opens onto an enclosed, sheltered yet sunny patio, ideal for alfresco meals.
The village offers a good network of public footpaths, whilst within five minutes’ drive is the historic market town of Kirkbymoorside, with an excellent array of independent shops, inns, tea rooms and a weekly market.
Take a step back in time and enjoy a ride on the North York Moors Railway at nearby Pickering, which steams through moorland draped in heather towards Grosmont, or, visit the Ryedale Folk Museum at Hutton-le-Hole for a unique glimpse into the past.
The surrounding area offers many attractions for all ages, including 900-year old Helmsley Castle and its wonderful walled gardens brimming with wildflowers, the impressive and ornate Castle Howard, the romantic ruin of Rievaulx Abbey or family-friendly Flamingo Land.
With the seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough also within easy reach for a day beside the sea, this appealing Marton cottage has plenty to offer.
