The property

Danby 2 miles.

A pretty, semi-detached stone barn conversion, situated on the owner's smallholding in the small hamlet of Houlsyke two miles from Danby.

With spectacular views over stunning countryside, this Danby cottage provides a wonderful romantic retreat for couples wanting peace and tranquillity within easy reach of the seaside town of Whitby.

Very welcoming, this Danby cottage exudes warmth and character, with exposed timbers, stripped floorboards and sloping ceilings in the bedroom.

The cosy, open plan sitting area boasts a warming woodburner to snuggle around on cooler evenings.

Nicely furnished and decorated, this Danby cottage provides very comfortable accommodation in a beautiful setting.

With a wonderful network of footpaths straight from the door, this Danby cottage is a walker's paradise, including the Cleveland Way National Trail this is a 109 mile (175 km) walking route through beautiful and ever-changing landscapes, and the very popular Wainright Coast to Coast walk, the scenery and the location is ideal for exploring this unspoilt part of North Yorkshire, whilst for the less energetic, the location is ideal for exploring the North York Moors by car.

The Danby Moors Centre lies two miles away and is well worth a visit, with its interesting exhibitions and displays, complete with tea room, whilst the coastal fishing village of Staithes is just ten miles away, with its cobbled streets and cottages tumbling down towards the sea.

Within half an hour is the historic port of Whitby, with long sandy beaches, famous abbey and atmospheric harbour.

With both the scenery and the coast to explore, this Danby cottage provides an ideal base.

Note: This property adjoins Ref: 1235, together they sleep 6, please consider this alternative cottage if bringing a larger dog as this property is more spacious.

The village of Danby is nestled in the beautiful and peaceful Esk Valley in the heart of The North York Moors. The village has two pubs (both serving food), a bakery, a tea room and a health food shop. There is also an excellent National Park Visitor Centre at Danby Lodge – an historic building set in 13 acres of riverside pasture, with facilities which include exhibitions, nature trails and tea rooms. Danby also boasts the ruins of a 14th century castle and the only remaining working water mill on the River Esk. The scenic Esk Valley Railway line runs through the village on its way to Whitby. The quaint moorland villages of Hutton-le-Hole and Lastingham, the market town of Pickering, the city of York and the Yorkshire Coast villages of Staithes, Saltburn and Robin Hood’s Bay are all within easy touring distance.
