The property

A charming mid-terrace country cottage in the village of Swainby, five miles from the popular village of Stokesley and four miles from Osmotherley in North Yorkshire.

A lovely cottage, tucked away in a quiet corner of this pretty village, and ideal for a romantic break.

Lying in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, this attractive cottage has been lovingly renovated and provides a spacious, comfortable, open plan living area with the benefit of a cosy woodburner, to toast the toes on cooler evenings, and also a dining area and sitting area.

A Belfast sink within the kitchen units completes the classic country cottage feel.

There is a double bedroom which has a TV/DVD, and a single bedroom together with a family bathroom.

A wide network of footpath walks surround this beautiful peaceful village which is a walker's paradise, and where you may well find you share the main street with small parties of horse riders from time to time.

Lying between Osmotherley and Stokesley, this cosy cottage is in an ideal position for walking the Cleveland Way and the Coast to Coast in the North Yorkshire Moors, yet it remains within easy reach of the bustling seaside resorts of Whitby, Saltburn and Scarborough.

The Yorkshire Dales lie close by to the west and for those wanting a shopping or sightseeing trip, Helmsley, York and Harrogate are within an easy drive.

The characteristics of the village and the surrounding area consist of traditional Yorkshire dry stone walls, hills, sheep, heather and moorland. The village is close to the ruins of Whorlton Castle.
