The property

Settled in the quaint village of Yafforth near Northallerton in North Yorkshire, is this fantastic two-bedroom, end-of-terrace cottage, Jigsaw Cottage.

Ideally located between the North York Moors National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Jigsaw Cottage makes for a superb base for a family of four or two couples plus two furry friends who are looking to explore the wonders of North Yorkshire.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where you can look forward to adding a log onto the alluring woodburning stove and snuggling up on the plush sofas for a movie night with your loved ones, courtesy of the wall-mounted Smart TV.

As stomachs begin to rumble, head to the well-equipped kitchen to conjure up enticing culinary delights with the help of the electric oven with gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and a dishwasher for a fuss-free clean up afterwards!

Gather around the dining table to savour a well-prepared meal, as the wine is poured, and plans are made for the days ahead.

If the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco occasion on the private enclosed patio, where you can savour the last of the sunshine and your pets can stretch their legs.

Climb the stairs to the first-floor, where you can pour in the bubbles and indulge in a pamper in the jacuzzi bath, as your towel warms on the heated towel rail nearby.

As your eyes grow heavy, pop on fresh pyjamas and choose from two sumptuous double rooms to catch your rest in, each with a Smart TV, ideal for those lazy Sunday mornings.

Set out for the day and head to the nearby town of Northallerton, which offers an excellent selection of amenities, including a charming local market which is held on Wednesdays and Saturdays where you can browse local goods and fresh produce.

There are also the delightful Betty’s Tea Rooms where you can treat yourself to a cup of coffee and a slice of cake, an award-winning butcher, a delicatessen and wine merchants, bookshops and several well-stocked supermarkets for any essentials.

For those keen golfers in your party, the superb Romanby Golf & Country Club is the place to be, offering a fantastic 18-hole championship golf course set in 200 acres of peaceful parkland.

Any budding historians in your party should venture towards the grand Mount Grace Priory, House and Gardens, magnificent 14th-century ruins resting on the edges of the North York Moors National Park, once the former residence of a silent order of monks.

From here you can take advantage of the wide variety of scenic walking and cycling trails which offer some of the best views North Yorkshire has to offer.

If you have time, be sure to make a stop at Thirsk, where you will discover the Thirsk Museum, where you can brush up on the local history, Thirsk Racecourse which hosts fixtures from April to September and The World of James Herriot Museum.

For a getaway to North Yorkshire like no other, secure your stay at Jigsaw Cottage.

About the location


Thirsk 9 miles.

Northallerton is a County town and administrative centre of North Yorkshire, located at the foot of a ridge dividing two river basin areas, the Wiske and the Cod Beck, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the edge of the Vale of York, between the Hambleton Hills and the Yorkshire Dales. This thriving town boasts market days on Wednesdays and Saturdays, when both sides of the High Street are home to stalls selling a wide range of goods and produce, plus on the fourth Wednesday of the month the market is joined by a farmers' market. Despite its modest size, Northallerton has a number of independent and national shops, including Betty’s Tea Rooms, Lewis & Cooper, an outstanding delicatessan and wine merchant, award-winning butcher’s, artisan baker, greengrocers, two department stores, several supermarkets and bookshops. With good rail links to Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Durham and York, the activities are not just restricted to the countryside. Situated equidistant between the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, the opportunities for exploration are endless. These include a day at the races at one of the many local courses, including Thirsk, a family trip to the unique Forbidden Corner at Middleham, a trip to a country house such as Newby Hall, Kiplin Hall and Castle Howard, or a round of golf. The restored Victorian resort of Saltburn, plus the pretty beaches and coves of Runswick Bay, Sand's End and Robin Hood's Bay, along with the town of Whitby, are all within one hour's drive away.
