After a day exploring the North York Moors National Park, relax in the garden room with a drink.

Tucked away in a rural setting within the North York Moors National Park, The Wheelhouse enjoys glorious views and makes a lovely holiday home with enjoyable walks from the door. The property has been carefully restored to combine traditional features such as exposed stonework and an unusually spacious garden room that was formerly the wheelhouse for horses threshing corn.
The Wheelhouse is just a couple of miles from the pretty village of Swainby and well placed for visiting the market town of Thirsk and surrounding ‘Herriot Country’. A little further afield is the north east coast with its fishing villages and Whitby where Whitby Abbey stands majestically on the headland above the traditional working harbour. For the energetic there is good surfing at Saltburn. The North York Moors and Heartbeat country provide stunning scenery and are wonderful for touring. Shops and pub 2½ miles.

Spent a week in this lovely cottage watching the bats and barn owls at dusk each evening. The views from all windows are beautiful and it was lovely seeing the stars so clearly at night. It’s one of the best equipped cottages we’ve ever stayed in, though the immediate area is very remote and the local store in Swainby is only open weekends. Lots of games for the children to play and a good selection of books. Loved that the main living space wasn’t dominated by a TV! So much to do in the area, we’ll definitely be back!

Really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the Wheel House. Great views, plenty of wildlife and good for walking or just resting up. Probably the best-equipped cottage we have stayed in. Local amenities a bit lacking - Swainby store only open at weekends but not a major issue for us. Highly recommended.
