Set in ¾ of an acre of natural unspoilt and landscaped gardens, Dragon Cottage includes fantastic on-site leisure facilities.

Set in ¾ of an acre of natural unspoilt and landscaped gardens, with a small stretch of exclusive catch and release fly fishing, this 300-year-old detached stone holiday cottage has been in the same family for over 100 years and has been lovingly and sympathetically restored by the friendly young owners. It has superb outdoor leisure facilities including a hot tub (available all year), sauna and beautiful circular Nordic barbecue experience, and a unique steam shower room on the ground floor. Situated just 1 mile from the beautiful grounds of Nunnington Hall and nestling in the peaceful hamlet of West Ness surrounded by stunning countryside, it is an idyllic location to discover the beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors National Parks and the rugged grandeur of the Yorkshire coast. Historic houses, castles and abbeys such as Castle Howard and Rievaulx Abbey are but a few miles from the door. The Minster City of York with many museums, galleries, theatres and ancient cobbled streets packed with antique shops, tea rooms, inns and restaurants is a must. A 40 minute drive leads to the East Yorkshire coast, home to the seaside towns of Scarborough, Filey and Robin Hoods Bay. Historic Whitby, known for its connections with Captain Cook, is just a further 30 minutes. The market towns of Malton, Kirkbymoorside, Helmsley, Easingwold and Pickering are all at hand and still host the weekly markets, with Pickering being home to the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway and a memorable journey through the beautiful Esk Valley into Heartbeat’s very own village of Goathland. So much to do and see makes visitors want to return again and again to the peace and tranquillity on offer at Dragon Cottage. Shops 3 miles.

    4 night stay, 8+ a baby and a dog. Lovely place to stay. Great for family and friends to come together. Not too much on the door step except beautiful countryside, which is exactly what we were after. Plus if you have a hot tub, sauna, bbq, and big dining table, what else do you need? The house catered for all our needs and offered us a chance to relax and enjoy our time. Would defiantly recommend

    Beautiful cottage but needs some of the ivy cutting back especially around the cottage windows and the summer house.

    Overall a nice stay. More than a few faulty items and garden furniture in need of replacing. Owner on the ball & willing to help out. Our pet loved the huge garden and the neighbourly sheep .

    Lovely cottage that was ideal for my Dad's 60th party. Loved the hot tub! Cottage was well equipped and furnished and was toasty warm in the unexpected March snow. Cottage is in a very quiet location and was a great place to spend a relaxing week.
