Grade II listed property with wood burning stove and garden overlooking a pond and the Hambleton Hills.

For a truly rural retreat, Ashpit Cottage sits in glorious countryside on the edge of the North York Moors, looking over the Hambleton Hills. This beautiful Grade II listed barn conversion, with Visit Britain 5* Gold quality grading, is the perfect hideaway for two looking for a tranquil break. The delightful open plan living/dining room has high vaulted beamed ceiling, exposed stone work and oak floors throughout. Large comfy sofa and chair snuggle round the wood-burning stove, perfect for relaxing on chilly evenings with a glass of wine and a good book.
The stylish kitchen area is well equipped and has wood cabinets in keeping with the cottage, tasteful lighting and a generous welcome pack. The charming bedroom is calm and peaceful, with painted sloping ceiling and beams, leading to the en-suite traditional bathroom, with its painted stone walls.
Relax on the sunny patio enjoying a morning coffee, and looking out over the garden and wildlife pond towards the enchanting Hambleton Hills. For a magical day out take the famous steam train from Pickering to Whitby and enjoy a fish and chip supper looking out over Whitby harbour. While historic York is not to be missed, with its cobbled shambles, medieval city walls and river cruises. Shops 5 miles, pub 1 mile.

Beamed living/dining room with wood-burning stove, open stonework and well-equipped kitchen area. Oak floor throughout. Utility. Double bedroom with 6ft zip & link bed, TV and en-suite bathroom with toilet. Shower room with toilet.

    Probably the highest spec cottage we have ever stayed in. Large and spacious with every little detail thought of. Large bathroom plus separate shower, welcome pack included on arrival and our host, Dorothy, had even phoned us in advance to ask which type of milk we preferred and would we rather have white or red wine. There were a couple of prepaid visitor passes available for us to use at local attractions too. The setting of the cottage is perfect. A great place to return to at the end of each day. Can't recommend highly enough.

    Ashpit Cottage is one of the best equipped and comfortable cottages we have stayed at. The owners Paul and Dorothy were friendly and helpful and very much respected our privacy. This was our first visit to Yorkshire, the area is outstanding and so was our stay.

    A fabulous cottage with a fantastic view, centrally located for many attractions. The owners Paul and Dorothy were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble, the welcome pack was excellent, especially the home made bread. Both the cottages have been totally rebuilt/refurbished by Paul and Dorothy to a very high standard and they both should be very proud of what they have achieved. We would not hesitate to recommend either of these cottages to anyone or return again.Thank you both for a lovely fortnight's holiday. Pete and Jan.

    This is a lovely cottage in an ideal location. It is ideally situated for the coast at Whitby or Scarborough, NYMR, stately homes such as Castle Howard and lovely market towns such as Pickering/Malton/Helmsley. We had a warm welcome from the owners and a lovely welcome pack awaiting us in the cottage. The cottage itself had everything you could need and more and was charming and cosy!
