Argil Cottage is right in the middle of the peaceful and green farmland of the vale of the River Rye, between the three historic market towns that make up the region: Kirkbymoorside, Pickering and Malton. It makes it the ideal spot to discover the beauty of the North York Moors, Howardian Hills and the Yorkshire coast.Set in a village location Argil Cottage is one of Great Barugh's period houses, built at the turn of the century. A complete renovation project has turned this substantial Victorian house into a light and airy and modern living space, with up to the minute touches which kicks off your Yorkshire holiday to a flying start. You know when you arrive, you can just relax.The breakfast kitchen has new, modern appliances and tiled throughout to the warm laundry/boot room and downstairs WC. From here is the sunny, flagstone garden with views over farmland to the famous purple heather, ideal for summer breakfasts and evening barbeques. There's a formal dining room with a large table and leather chairs and a cosy sitting room where you can relax and chat about your day.There are two double bedrooms, a family bathroom (with bath and shower) and a single bedroom that works really well for families looking for that bit of extra space.There are many features to Argil Cottage. It's romantic for couples getting away together, modern enough for older children to enjoy and spacious for youngsters to crawl about in.With the beautiful North York Moors and Howardian Hills there's plenty to go at and after a day's walking or biking it's good to be pampered on the return to Argil. There's washing facilities for bikes and, together with a laundry/boot room, off street parking and a secure garage, motorists, cyclists and walkers will find themselves equally looked after.
