A lovingly finished country-chic retreat sitting on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Gillamoor within the stunning North York Moors, a drive from the rugged Yorkshire Coast.

Situated on the outskirts of Gillamoor, a pretty North York Moors village boasting a welcoming pub, this rural retreat offers a peaceful stay and you are surrounded by attractive market towns where you can spend your days. Kirkbymoorside, home to independent shops and eateries, sits just 2.5 miles away. Further afield, you can head into the vibrant market towns of Pickering, located 10 miles away, or Helmsley, 8 miles from this pretty cottage. Venture north to discover the heart of the North York Moors, a haven for all manner of outdoor purists, whether you prefer to be on your feet or on two wheels.

From the moment you step inside, you'll feel at home in this wonderful rural retreat for two. Featuring flagstone flooring, elegant soft furnishings and traditional features, the welcoming space creates a peaceful ambience. The compact open-plan kitchen/diner is home to everything you'll need to prepare and enjoy intimate meals throughout your stay. Following dinner, retreat to the cosy lounge area, fire up the wood burner and sink into the comfortable sofa. Make your way through the hallway leading into the spacious master bedroom complete with restful super king-size bed. The spacious bathroom is home to a walk-in shower, perfect to refresh following a serene night's sleep.

Outside, you can make the most of a charming patio garden complete with table and chairs so you can bask in the great outdoors, weather permitting.

This beautiful property is in an enviable location. Sitting on the edge of Gillamoor, an attractive North York Moors village, it’s 2 miles south to the pretty town of Kirbymoorside and then you can travel onto vibrant and attractive Yorkshire market towns like Pickering (10 miles) and Helmsley (8 miles); both of which have an abundance of good restaurants, tea-rooms and independent shops.

Beyond the village lies the North York Moors. A landscape like no other, it's a place of gentle rolling hills of heather, ancient woodlands and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. If you want to get away from it all take a trip to the top of the high central moorlands. The famous Blakey Ridge affords some breathtaking views and is just 8 miles drive from the cottage. If walking is your thing, you are surrounded on all sides by some truly stunning routes.

This holiday home is close to the North Yorkshire Coast, with the gothic town of Whitby (24 miles) and the picture-postcard fisherman village of Robin Hood's Bay (28 miles) a drive away. Take a day trip here and experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Yorkshire's coastline.

Hutton-le-Hole, quite possibly the most beautiful village in the North York Moors, is just 3 miles away and you're also close to Castle Howard (15 miles) and York (27 miles), so lots of choice for day trips.

This property is personally managed by Rupert.
