  • "Very clean."

    A few more touches and it would be perfect. Needs a mat in the bath, very slippery when getting out and a grab handle. Iron was provided but no ironing board? WiFi would have been great.

  • "Lovely location and nice spacious property but it lacked a few basic essentials - no hairdryer or tin opener and general cooking utensils for those visitors wishing to self cater."

    It would have been nice to have a welcome/information pack with some information about the area and property. Bin/recycling info, recommendations of places to eat/visit.

  • "A few things were not provided which we would have expected - e."

    G. a teapot, bath mats in the two bathrooms (which had quite slippery floors), baking trays. There was a lack of information both about the house itself (e.g. which rubbish goes in which bin) and about the surrounding area - we know the area well but other visitors might not. The house itself was comfortable and well decorated, the owner was welcoming and helpful, and the parking space was excellent. With just a few adjustments (wi-fi perhaps?) it would be a really good place to stay.

The property

Resting in the rural village of Thornton-Le-Dale in North Yorkshire is The Old Coach House, a charming, sympathetically restored barn.

Well-positioned to explore the delights of the North York Moors National Park and the coastline, whilst adorning a stone-fronted exterior and original features throughout, The Old Coach House makes the ideal base for a family getaway, inviting four guests.

Benefit from two off-road parking spaces before entering the home, reaching the spacious open-plan living space, boasting lofty A-framed ceilings, an original fireplace with electric fire, plush seating, a formal dining table, and a well-equipped kitchen; here you can spend time as a family as you prepare meals, dine, and unwind.

When sleep calls, retreat to two well-appointed bedrooms, including a double with en-suite, and a twin with en-suite, the latter ideal for the children of your party.

Awaken to a coffee upon the front courtyard, before exploring the village and surrounding attractions; start off by grabbing a bite to eat at Lavenders Tea Rooms or the Brandysnap Bistro, before grabbing the essentials at the nearby Nisa supermarket.

Travel the national park, starting with a stroll through Ellerburn Bank Nature Reserve, or a nature-filled hike through the North Riding Forest Park, before an exhilarating, family-friendly afternoon at Go Ape Dalby.

Flamingo Land Resort is also nearby, possible to reach whilst aiming for the Howardian Hills AONB, home to Castle Howard, a stunning stately home, and The Yorkshire Arboretum, sweeping with woodland and walking paths.

For a day at the beach, head to Scarborough, with the chance to hike up to the castle, visit Peasholm Park and its oriental landscape, or book tickets for one of the many events held at the Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

Round off your break by touring York and its city walls, brush up on your historical knowledge at the York Castle Museum, discover the remains of St Mary's Abbey, or enjoy an immersive afternoon of archaeology at DIG: An Archaeological Adventure.

Experience all of this at The Old Coach House.

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 and the Dalby Forest. This is an idyllic location at the head of a beautiful valley and is a walkers, bikers and nature lovers paradise. Scarborough and Whitby are 13 and 20 miles away and offer all the amenities and facilities of two of the country's best coastal resorts. York and Castle Howard are about an hours drive away and offer all the history and culture that any holiday would need. The neighbouring market towns of Pickering, Malton, Kirbymoorside and Helmsley are great destinations and are the hubs for many summer festivals and shows. The National Park and Coastline offer many opportunities for a great day out. The North York Moors National Park is on the doorstep with miles of open moor to wander through.
