Benchmark Cottage is a warm, detached stone cottage in a peaceful end of the village, opposite the River Esk. A converted stable dating back to 1821, this characterful property retains many original features. Exposed sandstone walls add to its character. Benchmark Cottage sits at Stage 12 of the renowned Coast-to-Coast route and features a south-facing garden with outdoor seating, woodland aspect and on-site parking. You have the choice from the parking bay below to take the stone steps, or you can walk uphill to the cottage entrance. The cottage features two patio areas with outdoor seating, washing line, barbecue and a lawned area.
Stepping inside you are welcomed into the sunroom with a reclining sofa in front of large windows looking into the garden. The beautifully fitted kitchen features a homely kitchen AGA providing a truly country-living ‘feel’ to your stay. Modern appliances throughout ensure that you have everything needed. The living area has a corner sofa and Smart TV, perfect for movie nights. The modern shower room features a rainforest shower and a fold down seat. The bedroom is beautifully presented with a double bed beneath an electric Velux window. This is the perfect destination for an active break, with the coast as well as the national park to discover. Glaisdale offers a local village pub, post office, butcher, post office and grocery store and a railway station with easy connection to the North York Moors steam train.
Whether craving a romantic escape, a walker’s retreat or simply a base from which to explore the North York Moors’ wildlife and landscapes – with its quaint fishing towns and hamlets dotted along the stunning Jurassic North Sea coast – your stay here promises to be a memorable retreat.
With your hosts, Joanna and Pete close by to answer any questions, a warm Yorkshire welcome awaits you in Glaisdale
