Tucked away in the idyllic village of Castleton in North Yorkshire, is this traditional stone-built cottage, Michaelmass Cottage.

Enjoying a superb location within the North York Moors National Park and easy access to amenities, Michaelmass Cottage is an ideal dwelling for a small family of three or group of friends who are looking for a peaceful getaway.

Park-up roadside outside of the property, where you can unload your bags with ease and take in your beautiful home-away-from-home.

Be welcomed into the homely living/dining room, where you can look forward to adding a log onto the woodburning stove and curling up on the sofa in front of your favourite film on the Smart TV.

Rustle up tasty home-cooked meals in the well-equipped galley style kitchen, which includes an electric oven and hob, microwave and dishwasher for keeping your space tidy.

Settle down at the dining table to tuck-in to the fruits of your labour, followed by a crisp glass of wine out in the private garden as you savour the last of the day’s sunshine.

Climb the stairs to the first-floor, where you can wash away the day with a refreshing shower, as your towel warms on the nearby heated towel rail.

Catch your rest in one of two beautifully presented bedrooms, a double with feature wall and chest of drawers, and a single with wardrobe.

Explore the local village, where you will find a delightful selection of pubs and traditional inns where you can sample the local ales and treat your guests to a scrumptious pub lunch after a day of exploring.

There is also a delightful tearoom, an art gallery and a train station offering easy access to the surrounding areas of Whitby and Pickering.

Nearby you will find The Moors National Park Centre, where you can take part in bush walk activities, guided trails, a gift shop and learn more about the vast National Park.

Venture over to Guisborough, a historic market town and home to the fascinating Guisborough Priory, Guisborough Museum where you can brush up on the town’s rich history and the Guisborough Forest Walkway and Visitor Centre, where can enjoy leisurely walks through the lush woodlands.

A must-see is the National Trust Mount Grace Priory, House and Gardens, 14th-century ruins which were home to a silent order of monks, ready for you to delve in and explore.

If you can’t get enough of the history surrounding the area, be sure to make a stop at the 14th-century Whorlton Castle which overlooks the quaint village of Whorlton.
