    “The cottage is in a perfect ...”
    The cottage is in a perfect location for walks, sightseeing, steam trains etc. The village has everything you need if you're just going to chill out. The New Inn pub is literally a few doors away and the food and beer are excellent as are the staff. The only down side is, if you have an elderly dog who can't get up the stairs, you tend to spend most of your time in the kitchen! This would be made cosier by having some sort of cushions on the benches. Otherwise, a very nice cottage.

About the location


Pickering 2 miles; Scarborough 16 miles; York 25 miles.

The beautiful village of Thornton-le-Dale lies just two miles to the east of Pickering within The North York Moors National Park. Much of its charm comes from its complicated shape - a fascinating jumble of streams and paths and pretty houses with an attractive village green which still has its wooden stocks and a market cross. The village offers a selection of shops, pubs and tea rooms. The nearby market town of Pickering offers a good range of amenities and the famous North York Moors Steam Railway. There are broad fields above and below the village and views to the south across the Vale of Pickering, whilst to the north is the Forestry Commission's Dalby Forest, with several excellent nature trails to be enjoyed. Further afield, but within driving distance, are the east coast and the city of York.
