Sycamore Cottage is a terraced barn conversion and was formerly the thrashing barn and grain store. It offers ’upside down’ accommodation with the bedrooms on the ground floor, and the open plan living space upstairs. The cottage has its own enclosed patio with private hot tub, BBQ and garden furniture. In the grounds, there is a play area with swings and slide for under 7 year olds who must be supervised.
Set in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, Thirley Cotes Farm is a Grade ll listed farm dating back to around 1830. However, earlier records show Thirley Cotes mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The main house is set in a courtyard setting of outbuildings, all converted into a wonderful development of holiday cottages. Original features have been retained where possible, and the original trusses bear Roman numerals carved into the wood depicting the year they were constructed. The name Thirley Cote Farm Cottages was decided on due to the stunning woodland views with endless walks and cycle tracks between Broxa Forest and Harwood Dale Forest.
There are many activities and attractions in the area to keep all the family entertained. Dalby Forest has world cup mountain bike trails, Go Ape tree adventure, and nature walks. The RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs is worth a visit, and is home to thousands of sea birds nesting precariously on the cliff face. Keen birdwatchers can see kittiwakes, gannets and puffins, and offshore porpoises and grey seals can be spotted.
Traditional seaside resorts can easily be reached including Whitby, famous for its fish and chips and cliff top abbey ruins, and all the fun of the fair at Scarborough with two wide sweeping beaches, amusements and cliff top castle. Also worth a visit are the quaint fishing villages of Robin Hood’s Bay, Staithes and Runswick Bay. Further inland, the medieval city of York can be reached within an hour, with its Roman city walls and towering minster. Why not take a nostalgic journey on a steam train through the North York Moors from Whitby to Pickering, calling at Goathland, made famous as Aidensfield in the TV series ‘Heartbeat’?

Organised walks, cycle days and nature tours can all be arranged locally, and there is a selection of bikes for visitors to use, subject to availability.
Beach 4 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles. Sycamore Cottage can be booked together with Holly Cottage (ref UK2235), Thirley Cotes Farmhouse (ref UK2237), Oak Cottage (ref UK2238), Willow Cottage (ref UK2239), Pear Tree Cottage (ref UK2577), Mulberry Cottage (ref UK2578) and Walnut Cottage (ref UK2579) to accommodate up to 42 guests.

    We stayed at sycamore cottage for my mum and dads 40th wedding anniversary, the cottage is beautiful the only reason I’ve scored it low is the cleanliness of it, I found it very dirty unfortunately, the sofa under the cushions looked like it had never been vacuumed we had to remove all the cushions from the sofa and vacuumed it all, also found that there was a funny smell on the sofa. The rug upstairs was filthy and covered in dog hairs we rolled it up and put it away as it was so dirty, as I say the cottage is amazing it’s just the hygiene let’s it down massively and they should hire proper cleaning companies to go in and give it a thorough clean for the next family

    Fab cottage in a great location close to Scarborough and Filey. The grounds the cottage were on had a games room and small park which were great for the kids. I would highly reccomend this cottage, will definitely stay again.

    We had an excellent holiday at Sycamore Cottage. A week away with family and children. A really safe area for the children to play, they made the most of the outdoor space. They all had great fun accessing the games room. The cottage was comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. We all found the beds very comfortable, something that does not always happen. We would recommend our cottage.

    Beautiful house. Spacious and comfortable. Only 2 small comments of, although the underfloor heating is a lovely touch it does make drying towels/swim suits quite difficult due to no radiators. And no outside seating was a bit of a pain when wanting to watch the children outside playing/in the hot tub although I am putting this down to the time of the year. Other than this it was a perfect trip.

    The property is huge and our party all felt they had plenty of room. The property is in wonderful surroundings. Great for walks The owners are there if you need them and don't intrude if you don't. You will need to take a hairdryer. We had a voice of 2 coffee machines ( filter and dolce gusto) one of which had pods supplied. Lots of towels supplied too. My wife and I hope to return as it seemed to us to be the perfect place to relax
