There is a farm next door, whose cows inhabit the field adjacent to the house, and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway runs in the valley beyond. It is well-placed to explore the coast and the moors. There are one or two problems which need to be addressed, though. The floodlight at the front of the house shines straight into the front bedroom on the first floor, and the venetian blind is inadequate to keep the light out (there are no curtains). The Wi-Fi was unusable in the evenings when we were there. Whether this is due to the two available connections being shared by the five cottages or if it's a village-wide problem I can't say. However, on the whole, I would thoroughly recommend Ewelands House.
