The cottage has lots of character with open beams and a wonderful atmosphere.

To the right is an elegant drawing room with wooden floors, oriental rugs, an open fire - perfect for cosy evenings - TV/DVD, lovely artwork on the walls and a collection of books.

WHITBY

Wheatsheaf Cottage is situated in the centre of Egton, in our opinion, is one of the prettiest villages in the North Yorkshire Moors.The village boasts several pubs, one of which is next door, and is locally renowned for its excellent menu. There are several more fantastic restaurants and gastro pubs within a few minutes drive. Egton village is famous for the annual gooseberry show every August, thought to be the oldest of its kind in England.

A little disappointed with the cookware and utensils provided

As the property is meant to sleep 8 we would have expected large saucepans, several baking trays, more than 2 sharp knives and a frying pan. We ended up buying a runcible spoon and a set of sharp knives and a frying pan was provided by the landlord on asking. Nevertheless a beautiful cottage in a beautiful place.
