Nestling on the edge of the picturesque North York Moors village of Gillamoor, these beautifully presented holiday cottages (refs 31109, 31110, 31111, 31112 and 31113) provide a cosy and relaxing retreat amidst glorious countryside. Although Gales House Farm is no longer a working farm, these delightful barn conversions are surrounded by fields with grazing sheep, and the owner provides a generous welcome pack. Each property has been graded and awarded a 4*Gold or 5* by VisitEngland. Bothy Cottage (31110) and Barley Cottage (31111) share a garden, with each still having their own private barbecue and seating area. The North York Moors National Park is perfect for walkers and cyclists, and the stunning scenery of the moors can be enjoyed aboard the famous steam train from Pickering, 9 miles, to the coastal town of Whitby. The neighbouring village of Hutton-le-Hole is home to the Ryedale Folk Museum, and the market towns of Kirkbymoorside, 3 miles, and Helmsley, 8 miles, offer a delightful choice of individual shops, traditional inns and tea rooms. The family attractions of Flamingo Land, Eden Camp, International Centre for Birds of Prey and Go Ape in Dalby Forest are within easy reach. Discover stately homes, halls, castles, Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall, Kirkham Priory and Rievaulx Abbey. The minster city of York with its museums, galleries, theatres and ancient cobbled streets is just a 45-minute drive away. The seaside resorts of Scarborough, Robin Hood’s Bay and Sandsend are all within an hour’s drive. Shop 21/2 miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
