Easter Cottage is a beautiful, Grade II listed, traditional Yorkshire stone cottage, situated in the stunning village of Thornton le Dale, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. The village is one of the prettiest in Yorkshire with its stone cottages and village green, where every Sunday in the summer months, a band performs on the green in the bandstand. A stream meanders through the village where the duck pond has lots of wildlife to see. The village has everything you need with a local butcher, bakers, shop and a couple of pubs, all within five minutes walk from the cottage.
Easter Cottage is just 1½ miles from Dalby Forest, and a complimentary Discovery Pass for 4 people (and free parking for 1 car) is included in your stay. Here there are 683 miles of cycle trails, from gentle family routes to serious down hilling for adrenaline seekers. Dalby Forest also hosts lots of other attractions such as Go Ape, special events for children like fungal forays and bug hunts, and for the adults, outdoor concerts in the summer. If you spent a few days in the forest with different activities each day, the whole area would still not be covered. The market town of Pickering lies just 2½ miles from the village of Thornton, with its famous station carrying passengers all the way to Whitby on its celebrated steam trains run by the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Passing through the North Yorkshire Moors, you can alight and discover the village of Goathland made famous in the TV series Heartbeat, as Aidensfield. Pickering hosts the WWII war weekend every year when the town becomes seeped in a bygone age; residents and visitors are dressed in 1940’s clothing, and Glen Millers music gets everyone in the mood.
Easter Cottage is ideally located for easy access to the medieval city of York with its history, museums, minster and shopping, and is less than 45 minutes by car, or if you prefer the regular “Coastliner” bus, this excellent bus service runs regularly throughout the week. Also within easy reach is the traditional seaside town of Scarborough on the East Coast, just 15 miles from the cottage. Filey is less than 20 miles drive with its traditional “cobble” on the sea front. You can also take a trip to the RSPB Cliffs at Bempton where Puffins abound in their natural habitat, possibly taking in Bridlington at the same time. Dogs and children will be well catered for with areas of beaches suitable for everyone. Castle Howard, the superb 18th century stately home set in over 10,000 acres of estate land, is just 16 miles away, with breathtaking landscaped grounds, garden centre, excellent farm shop and butcher selling locally grown meat and vegetables, woodland and lakeside walks, and an adventure playground.
After a hard days cycling in Dalby Forest, walking along the beach on the east coast or sightseeing and shopping in York, Easter Cottage will envelope you, with the warmth of two wood burners, beams and great facilities for the whole family. Shop and pub 700 yards.

    Great spot, super accommodation,only downside been no parking outside and a busy road if like me you like the bedroom window ajar at night. That been said really enjoyed the spot, had some great walks and the locals were very dog friendly which is great.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Philip - Thank you so much for your feedback. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay, parking is available on the opposite side of the road approx. 50 yds. away and is usually available unless the Tour de Yorkshire is coming through the village. Security from the back garden, which is fully enclosed, to the road at the front is good as long as the passage door remains locked, we have not had reports of any escapees either human or canine so far, and as you mention well behaved dogs are welcome all around the village.

    We had a lovely week in Easter Cottage its close enough to walk into Thornton le dale which has everything you need from coffee shops to pubs serving good food and beautiful walks. My only concern is the cottage is on a very busy road and care should be taken if you have children and dogs. It is a bit noisy but the cottage is double glazed and theres virtually no traffic during the night.

    The cottage was lovely well equipped and extremely clean and these opinions are how I found it as it might not be a issue for others. I know its an old cottage and it has small windows [secondary glazed] but I found them claustrophobic and oppressive and this is one of the main reasons why I had to go home 1 day earlier. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs and the EnSuites are at the back of both rooms, but there are NO windows at the back and I found this contributed to the claustrophobia. The cottage is on the main road to Scarborough and as such noisy but the secondary windows lessened the noise, BUT when it was very warm you had to open these full. Having fans would have helped as I am not used to road noise. The keys to front and back door were very awkward to use until you got used to them but it was very annoying at first as we couldn't open any doors from the inside and in a emergency I dread to think what would happen. I think the owners need to sort this out. There was no parking at the front of the house and we had to park in Dog Kennel Lane [which was a quiet lane] but we had to walk back and too with everything. The back garden was very secluded and lovely, one of the best things about the property. There is a lounge and a dining room but the dining room never got used by us.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am so sorry you found the cottage claustrophobic - Easter Cottage is a Grade II listed cottage in a conservation village and perhaps if you are used to a modern house the character of an older property can be very different. Whilst there is some road noise the position of Easter Cottage allows easy access to many attractions, noise is not a major issue and lessons considerably from about 8pm. The back door will be replaced in September along with the conservatory and the front door lock has not been an issue before. Apart from occasional major events (Tour de Yorkshire) parking is available within 150 yards and is stated in the information provided on the website. Thank you for your comments.
