A most charming detached stone cottage, situated in a secluded courtyard setting in Rosedale Abbey village, in the heart of the North York Moors.
It provides a lovely romantic hideaway for couples wanting to get away from it all, with excellent walking and cycling opportunities from the doorstep.
Thoughtfully furnished and decorated to a high standard, there is a warm and inviting generous-sized open plan living area, with comfortable seating, a well-equipped modern kitchen and a dining area.
The high vaulted ceiling and picture windows give a spacious feel, yet the cottage still retains its cosy ambience.
The double bedroom leads off from the sitting room and is complemented by quality bedding and a bright contemporary en-suite.
Outside, there is private parking and a patio area where you can sit with a morning coffee.
With stunning scenery and an enviable network of public footpaths, this area is a walker's paradise.
Pickering and Kirkbymoorside offer a good selection of amenities including restaurants, independent shops and tearooms.
Castle Howard and the ancient city of York are well worth a day’s outing and the seaside resorts of Whitby, Filey and Scarborough are all accessible by car.
A wonderful area to explore, from a delightful cottage.
About the location
Kirkbymoorside 8 miles; Pickering 10 miles; Whitby 16 miles.
Situated in the heart of the North York Moors National Park and handily placed for touring both the Moors and the Coast, the picturesque village of Rosedale Abbey is set within Rosedale, a beautiful valley of sweeping hillsides and breathtaking views. Rosedale is surrounded by wonderful moorland countryside with footpaths and bridleways radiating out in every direction. Today, a stone pillar, staircase and sundial are all that is left of the 12th century Cistercian Priory that gave the village its unusual name. Charming stone built cottages cluster around the village green alongside the village shops, tea rooms, glass studio and three old country pubs/restaurants. For entertainment visit Rosedale Abbey's very own pitch-and-putt golf course and riding stables. Follow this with a visit to Ryedale Folk Museum in the pretty village of Hutton-le-Hole. Alternatively, embrace the outdoors and "Go Ape" in Dalby forest for a truly memorable and adventurous family fun day out. Visit Rievaulx and Byland Abbeys and take a trip on the North York Moors Steam Railway at nearby Pickering. Golfers will enjoy a round on the picturesque course at Kirkbymoorside and anglers can try their luck trout fishing at Pickering.
