Set in 40 acres of farmland, bordered by woodland and Hartoft Beck, this peaceful, converted barn enjoys a secluded setting, and has its own garden. The views are stunning, and look out across the rolling fields flanked by dry stone walls, set against the backdrop of Cropton Forest. The cottage is charming, with exposed beams and a cosy wood burner, the well-presented bedrooms are very comfortable, and the bathrooms are contemporary. This is an ideal location for relaxing amidst an abundance of wildlife including deer, rabbits and squirrels, and is perfect for birdwatchers. The village pub serves traditional ales and delicious meals using local produce, and the surrounding area is home to a wealth of farm shops, tea rooms, cosy pubs and Michelin starred restaurants. From the doorstep there are countryside walks; cycle hire is available at Dalby Forest, and horse riding at Sinnington and Boltby. Visit the artisan glassworks, Gillies Jones at Rosedale and Cropton Brewery for beer sampling! There are abbey ruins to explore at Rievaulx, and stately homes to enjoy at Nunnington Hall and Castle Howard. Family fun can be found at Go Ape and Flamingo Land and there are miles of sandy beaches at the traditional seaside resorts of Whitby and Scarborough. From Pickering visitors can board the famous steam train for a scenic trip through the stunning North York Moors, passing through Goathland and Grosmont to reach the historic fishing port of Whitby, renowned for its medieval abbey, Dracula connections and fish and chips! The walled city of York is within an hour’s drive and appeals to all ages with its diverse mix of ancient history, visitor attractions, museums and art galleries.
