    “Lovely cottage, very clean and ...”

    Lovely cottage, very clean and comfortable. We very much enjoyed being there and it's in a good location, very accessible to the coast and to other amenities.

    Lovely cottage, very clean and comfortable. We very much enjoyed being there and it's in a good location, very accessible to the coast and to other amenities. Everything worked well and we particularly liked the rain shower. Otherwise only very minor issues. Kitchen utensils and pots are very basic. And no wifi access so anyone coming with teenagers might need to top up on mobile data.

The property

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.

About the location


Pickering 3 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.
