    “The property needs a good clean throughout.”

    Don’t feel like it is paid enough attention by whoever cleans it. Bathroom and kitchen just wiped over and we had to clean before using. Carpets and rugs are grubby. Would be helpful if items left were clean to use. Hoover was full to bursting and mop was black. No hand towels or bath mats were there we found some in the utility so washed them through and used them but this should be out as standard. Plus side beds were comfy and house spacious and gardens were lovely. We were told gardener ...

    Don’t feel like it is paid enough attention by whoever cleans it. Bathroom and kitchen just wiped over and we had to clean before using. Carpets and rugs are grubby. Would be helpful if items left were clean to use. Hoover was full to bursting and mop was black. No hand towels or bath mats were there we found some in the utility so washed them through and used them but this should be out as standard. Plus side beds were comfy and house spacious and gardens were lovely. We were told gardener came on a Tues or weds but he came on Thurs and Friday. This was ok but we were just so worried about our dogs as the main gate is not lockable and felt nervous they could get out if someone opened the gate. My mom fell off a broken chair and we then noticed this had been reported previously. Could be such a lovely place if there was more attention to detail

The property

6 miles NW of Northallerton.

Manor Cottage is a superb period cottage set in a quiet rural farming area in the tiny hamlet of Birkby just north of the bustling market town of Northallerton.

Dating back to the late 19th century, Manor Cottage has been extended and renovated into a stylish and contemporary holiday home for friends and families, whilst still managing to retain some of its original features such as the brick inglenook fireplace; six guests are welcomed, along with two well-behaved dogs.

You can enjoy a relaxing evening together in the sitting room with the woodburning stove and take advantage of the Smart TV and DVD player, recommended to bring all your favourite film classics to watch.

Walk through the open-plan living space, where you can curl up and relax, prepare delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen, or gather at the large dining table; this makes a wonderful social space for families to dine together with a pleasant outlook down over the large sloping garden, both child and dog-friendly.

There are three bedrooms, a king-size, twin, and family bedroom; each comes with its own traditional furnishings for storing personal items and are serviced by a family bathroom and a shower room.

Externally, Manor Cottage has a peaceful, secluded country cottage garden with a spacious gravelled terrace with furniture, where you may enjoy the sunshine looking across adjacent open farmland where sheep peacefully graze.

An extensive grass-maintained area slopes down to mature trees at the bottom of this long garden.

Looking down from the terrace in front of the cottage, beyond these trees and a further couple of fields away, you may glimpse the LNER railway line.

While in the area, enjoy Northallerton with its restaurants and coffee shops to sample traditional Yorkshire delicacies, and gather provisions from the various supermarkets for an evening meal.

Within comfortable driving distance, are the splendid, historic cathedral cities of Durham and York, hosting several popular tourist attractions to provide a unique day out.

Close to the scenic Yorkshire Dales and beautiful North York Moors, you are well-placed for exploring picturesque villages, wildflower meadows, open moorland with an abundance of walking and cycling routes.

Further afield, the beauty of the Lake District and Yorkshire coastline can easily be discovered.

Manor Cottage is the place to be for those who enjoy the secluded countryside.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location

NORTHALLERTON

Thirsk 9 miles.

Northallerton is a County town and administrative centre of North Yorkshire, located at the foot of a ridge dividing two river basin areas, the Wiske and the Cod Beck, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the edge of the Vale of York, between the Hambleton Hills and the Yorkshire Dales. This thriving town boasts market days on Wednesdays and Saturdays, when both sides of the High Street are home to stalls selling a wide range of goods and produce, plus on the fourth Wednesday of the month the market is joined by a farmers' market. Despite its modest size, Northallerton has a number of independent and national shops, including Betty’s Tea Rooms, Lewis & Cooper, an outstanding delicatessan and wine merchant, award-winning butcher’s, artisan baker, greengrocers, two department stores, several supermarkets and bookshops. With good rail links to Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Durham and York, the activities are not just restricted to the countryside. Situated equidistant between the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, the opportunities for exploration are endless. These include a day at the races at one of the many local courses, including Thirsk, a family trip to the unique Forbidden Corner at Middleham, a trip to a country house such as Newby Hall, Kiplin Hall and Castle Howard, or a round of golf. The restored Victorian resort of Saltburn, plus the pretty beaches and coves of Runswick Bay, Sand's End and Robin Hood's Bay, along with the town of Whitby, are all within one hour's drive away.
