An endearing stone detached cottage, set in the chocolate-box village of Thornton-le-Dale, one mile from the popular market town of Pickering.
A beck runs alongside the barn and access is via a small bridge.
Originally a barn, the property has been lovingly restored to a high standard and now provides a most delightful single-storey holiday home for the most discerning guests.
With bags of character, there are flagged floors throughout and the open-plan living area has high pitched ceilings with the original exposed timbers, a well-equipped galley-style kitchen and a cosy sitting area.
The double bedroom leads off the living area, whilst two small steps lead up to the modern bathroom and the second bedroom.
Comfortably furnished to a high standard, the cottage has a lovely homely feel and will be a pleasure to come back to after a days exploring.
Outside, there is a private enclosed sunny garden to the rear of the property, where one can sit and relax with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.
A few minutes stroll along the side of the beck brings you into the centre of this most picturesque village, with an array of interesting shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants.
There are numerous walks straight from the door, while nearby bustling Pickering hosts the terminus of the famous North York Moors Steam Railway, which winds its way through heather clad moors to Grosmont and Whitby.
Local attractions include Dalby Forest, with its biking and walking tracks, Duncombe Park, Castle Howard and the pretty market town of Helmsley.
With the saeside towns of Whitby and Scarborough just a short drive and the spectacular scenery of the national park to discover, this well-placed cottage provides an excellent base any time of the year.
All ground floor. Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x twin room with adult bunk and 1 single bed. Bathroom with bath, shower, basin and WC. Open-plan living area with modern kitchen, dining area and comfortable sitting area.
