The property

Thornton-le-Dale 6 miles.

An attractive red brick cottage, attached to the owner's home and adjacent to their licensed horse racing yard, six miles from Thornton-le-Dale.

With lovely open views over fields and farmland of the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds, the cottage is well placed for visiting the nearby market towns of Pickering and Malton, exploring the North York Moors and spending time at the seaside towns of Scarborough and Filey.

Inside, there is a bright and cheerful country-style kitchen with painted beams with a farmhouse dining table in the middle, creating a pleasant sociable space to relax over an evening meal.

The sitting room is comfortable and traditionally furnished, while upstairs are the two delightful bedrooms, overlooking the surrounding countryside.

A small fully enclosed patio is safe for dogs and provides a sunny spot to enjoy a morning coffee before heading off for the day.

The flat country lanes are ideal for cycling and walking, and there are many historic homes in the vicinity, including Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall and Sledmere House.

Alternatively, visit the historical grounds of Rievaulx and Byland Abbeys and Helmsley Castle.

A short drive brings you to the popular coastal town of Scarborough, with its majestic castle ruins perched high on the cliff overlooking the sweeping sandy bay.

With donkey rides, amusements, ice cream parlours and candy floss, there are lots of attractions to keep the family happy.

Have a fun-filled day at nearby Flamingo Land and you can be assured of a memorable holiday at this pretty cottage.

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.
