About Our Cottage

The cottage still has the original Yorkshire stone kitchen floor, exposed stonework, original beams in the lounge and master bedroom and stripped pine doors throughout.

Market towns at Kirkbymoorside, 3 miles, and Helmsley, 8 miles, offer a choice of shops, inns and tearooms and visitors can travel on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway. The village pub and restaurant is just around the corner.

We've been working in conjunction with the North York National Park over the summer of 2020 and are proud to be included in their "friendly" schemes meaning we now have a range of useful things to help you embrace their activities while staying in our cottage, at the time of writing the cycle store is out of stock so we are yet to meet the criteria for the cycle friendly scheme.

The logos below link to the North York Moors National Park Authority website about the schemes and an indication of some of the many hoops we had to jump through to achieve this prestigious level.
