Our cottage is conveniently placed for exploring both the Yorkshire moors and the Dales and is a 20 minute drive across the moor to Whitby, 36 miles from the beautiful city of York and 25 miles from Scarborough. It is well placed for visiting the numerous attractions, Castle Howard, The famous Steam Railway which travels from Pickering to Whitby, Herriot Country and the renowned market town of Helmsley. The local village of Rosedale with its Abbey, Glass Gallery, Deli and pub is a ten minute drive.

Hartoft Country Inn with a welcoming restaurant is a 5 minute drive. There are several award winning Tea and Coffee shops and Antique shops to explore and Andrew Pern’s famous Michelin Star Inn at Harome is within easy reach.

There are several bridleways and walks straight from the door leading across the moor. Horse riding is available nearby.

The birdlife is spectacular and you will often wake to deer roaming the field in front of Snowy Owl Lodge. (Picture of pond from Robin’s nest)

There is no light pollution which attracts star gazers to the area and there is total peace and quiet. A rest from the norm though TV, DVD and ipod deck are available. Also games and books which will ensure you have all you need for an enjoyable holiday

Penny and Graham live in the farm next door and though are on hand to guide you throughout your stay, privacy is assured.

We regret we are unable to accommodate pets or smokers. We are also unable to allow Barbeques due to the park and moorland restrictions. A swift Laundry service is available if required and an office facility to receive wireless broadband both at a small supplement.

Penny and Graham look forward to welcoming you to their very special retreat.
