This enchanting, detached stone cottage is in an idyllic setting on the village green, in the tiny hamlet of Beck Hole, just a mile from the moorland village of Goathland.
Locally known as Edie's Cottage, after the wonderful country lady who lived there, this is the perfect romantic hideaway for exploring the stunning scenery of the North York Moors and is just a few minutes’ drive to the historic seaside town of Whitby.
Beautifully presented to the highest of standards with first class furnishings, this endearing property oozes charm and character, from the stone flagged floors to the beamed ceilings.
There is a small, bespoke hand-crafted kitchen and a spacious sitting room, with the original stone fireplace now housing a cosy woodburning stove to relax by on the cooler evenings.
Upstairs are two very pretty bedrooms, both with painted timber floors, quirky low windows and quality linens and beds, ensuring a good night's sleep.
The master bedroom has a king-size bed, and the single bedroom has the most beautiful far-reaching views of the wooded slopes of the Esk Valley.
The compact but luxurious bathroom comes complete with a marble basin and waterfall tap.
Warm and welcoming, seamlessly combining tradition with modern comforts, guests can't fail to enjoy the lovely ambiance this exceptional cottage exudes.
Outside, the beautiful private garden, with shrubs and flowers, is a peaceful haven in which to sit in the sunshine and enjoy a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine and admire the views.
Beck Hole is set in a deep tree-clad valley, with its few dwellings clustered around the centuries old village green with the old quoits pitch, where the game is still played during the summer months.
Edie's Cottage is just a minute’s stroll from the smallest pub in the north of England, where traditional ales are served.
The popular Rail Trail runs through the hamlet and walkers are spoilt for choice with the many footpaths that abound.
Enjoy the walk to Goathland to the Mallyan Spout waterfall or take a trip back in time on the North York Moors Steam Railway.
Popular Whitby offers long sandy beaches, an historic harbour and a rich array of restaurants, independent shops, cocktail bars and quaint tea rooms.
Climb the 199 steps up to the famous abbey or take an exhilarating cliff top walk along the Cleveland Way.
With so many attractions in the immediate area, Edie's Cottage provides a wonderful and unique base.

About the location
Whitby 9 miles.
The idyllic village of Goathland is set on the north eastern edge of the North York Moors National Park. It is surrounded by the rugged open moorlands which provide excellent walking country and on which sheep graze freely. The village has been popularised by the television programme Heartbeat. At the bottom of the village lies the station for the famous North York Moors Steam Railway. Here you can catch a train to Whitby or Pickering and relax as the train winds its way through the moors. Goathland is within easy reach of the East Coast towns of Whitby, Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay and Scarborough, making it a great holiday base.
Note: No children under 12.
