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.

    We had the most wonderful time at Easter Cottage in the beautiful town of Thornton-le-Dale. The cottage is very cozy and comfortable and Jude and Steve take great pride in making sure that their guests are well situated. We were greeted with some homemade squares and beautiful flowers and Jude checked in often to make sure we had everything we needed. The town is perfect for exploring the beautiful moors, coasts, villages and heritage sites of gorgeous Yorkshire. We could not recommend highly enough.

    We had a lovely time at Easter Cottage. Perfectly placed for exploring Yorkshire (and there is always lots to do) and the little village of Thornton Le Dale is lovely. The cottage itself was clean and well set out. We had a lovely 2 weeks and would recommend it. The snug is a really lovely idea and perfect for those quiet moments to enjoy with a book and cup of tea.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your kind remarks, the wider area and Thornton itself offer great days out, there always seems to be so much to do.

    Loved the cottage, beautiful location, amazing holiday and nice and quiet aside from the main road outside. But the road wasnt a big issue at all just crossing it can be a challenge when busy. Low ceilings so luckily enough we are short ppl no problem for us but can see it being an issue for others. Milk in the fridge and dog bowls, towels and treats provided with a welcome card. Only thing missing was a couple of loungers in the garden and sauces in the kitchen cupboards. Will definitely return!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your lovely review. I take on board your comments regarding sun loungers, however we do not like to leave food as it can attract insects and go out of date.

    Our booking was very short notice but everything was ready for us just as if we had booked months in advance. Easter Cottage is a beautiful ‘home from home’ and had absolutely everything in that we could have wished for. Definitely not a ‘holiday let’ - a real home, full of home comforts. In our position- looking for a ‘bolt hole ‘ to spend time together as a family at short notice it fitted the bill perfectly, providing peace, tranquility and comfort. We were also very lucky with the weather - hitting the hottest day of the year. The owner is particularly welcoming to dogs. Thornton le Dale is a beautiful village and extremely well placed for exploring the coast/moors/Dalby Forest and not too far from York. Highly recommend.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you so much for your positive review. We do try to make Easter Cottage a home from home rather than as you pointed out a holiday let and your comments make the hard work worthwhile. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay exploring the surrounding area and relaxing.

    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 from:

    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.
