  • “Wood Cottage is exceptional in every way.”

    The upside down layout works very well, and is tastefully furnished and very comfortable. The welcome basket was very generous in size and content. Robert and Joanne were perfect hosts and one of the nicest couples we have ever met, and we look forward to returning to Wood Cottage in the near future.

The property

Stokesley 7.9 miles.

Enjoying spectacular views of the amazing North Yorkshire Moors is this picture-perfect stone cottage, resting on a working hill farm close to the village of Chop Gate, and within the North York Moors National Park.

Providing an idyllic retreat for four guests who want to be within natural surroundings and on the doorstep of their outdoor adventure, this homely and reverse-level dwelling is the perfect choice.

Wood Cottage, so named because it stands next to the gate leading to the wood, is a lovingly renovated 200 year old barn and makes delightful living accommodation.

Once here take in the extraordinary views of Raisdale and Bilsdale before stepping inside to discover the ground floor, home to two bedrooms, including a pretty twin room, and a lovely double bedroom, with king size bed, both with delightful bedding and furnishings to make you feel at home.

Also resting on this floor is the bright and spacious bathroom, where a bath with a shower over is housed for you to freshen up in, with a cloakroom next door too for added convenience.

Move upstairs to find the heart of the home within the first-floor open-plan living space, where the beautiful fabrics and furnishings have been carefully selected to keep the cottage light and pretty.

From here you can take in the fabulous views of the surrounding countryside or relax on the sofa in front of the stove-effect fire.

Ensure the group enjoys a hearty meal after a day of walking on the North York Moors by rustling up a fabulous dish in the amply-equipped kitchen, complete with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, with a country-style dining table to sit around and tuck in.

Make use of your own patio space and garden outside with seating so you can rest and relax within this divine location, surrounded by magnificent scenery.

Enjoy views across the open countryside which includes a field barn, the only one in the area, and the stone-walled fields so typical of the farmland hereabouts.

A short walk in any direction provides a site for a picnic; making this the ideal base for a family holiday, romantic break, get together with friends or just the chance to unwind and get away from it all; or put on your walking boots and begin discovering the expansive North Yorkshire Moors in all their heather-clad beauty, where many routes coincide, as well as the 110-mile long Cleveland Way running close by.

Enjoy fabulous countryside leading through woodland, fields, hills and dales over towards the Wainstones and beyond.

Chop Gate, 1/2 a mile from Wood Cottage, offers a pub that serves local food.

For guests willing to travel a little further, the village of Great Broughton is 4 miles away and offers several local pubs with restaurants and just 7 miles away is the market town of Stokesley with a traditional high street, a weekly market and monthly farmers market.

There is also an excellent leisure centre with swimming pool and gym, and a 9-hole golf course, driving range and crazy golf.

Travelling from Wood Cottage in the opposite direction brings you to the picturesque market town of Helmsley in the Ryedale area.

You can stroll around the market and grab coffee or lunch in one of the many cafes, or hotels and even try out the local ice-cream and handmade chocolates or visit the stick man who made Nanny McPhee's magic walking stick.

Discover the delightful village of Great Ayton, or head over to Whitby where a host of seaside attractions await as well as a beautiful beach, with the fabulous Whitby Abbey overlooking the town and reached via the challenging 199 Steps, perhaps travelling here by steam train from Pickering, 45 minutes drive away from Wood Cottage, with the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway.

Other nearby attractions include many National Trust properties, Captain Cook's monument, Roseberry Topping, Flamingo Land, Castle Howard and the historic city of York.

About the location


Great Ayton 3 miles; Saltburn-by-the–Sea 14 miles.

Stokesley is an attractive, elegant, historic market town which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, with many interesting Georgian and Victorian buildings. The River Leven flows through the town and is crossed by the ancient Pack Horse Bridge. Levenside provides visitors with a peaceful riverside walk, well planted with trees, as a contrast to the bustle of the High Street. The town has a distinguished wide cobbled main street lined with Georgian and Regency buildings. It is well served with shops, banks, public houses and restaurants and the weekly Friday markets are held on the main square. Just off the market square is the Church of St Peter & St Paul which has woodwork carved by the Mouseman of Kilburn. Surrounded by the Cleveland Hills and close to the northern edge of the North York Moors, Stokesley provides an ideal base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales, the heather clad North Yorkshire Moors and the pretty market towns of Great Ayton, Northallerton and Thirsk. The seaside spa resort of Saltburn is 30 mins drive away whilst Whitby, Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay are within easy reach.
