    “When leaving the property I stripped the bed.”

    The pillow and mattress protectors were badly stained (not by us!). Very disappointing as the cleaner lady was outside and when I mentioned it she said she had noticed it when she made the bed up for our arrival!

The property

Located in the North York Moors National Park, this traditional stone-built cottage is tucked away in an idyllic village in North Yorkshire.

The conveniences of town are within easy reach of Michaelmass Cottage.

If you're a couple seeking a peaceful retreat, this is the place for you.

Park-up directly outside the property, before unloading your bags and beginning your holiday. There are shutters on the windows of the beamed sitting room, which includes a dining area.

It's lovely and inviting, with a wood-burning stove and a Smart TV so you can curl up on the sofa and watch your favourite show.

The galley-style kitchen features an electric oven and hob, microwave, perfect for whipping up delicious meals, along with a dishwasher to keep your space tidy. There are two well-appointed bedrooms in this home.

The larger room houses a double bed with chest of drawers, feature wall and a fireplace.

To the rear of the property, you will find a snug single bedroom. Outside, there is a secluded area where you can enjoy a glass of wine and some quiet time.

Adjacent to Michaelmass Cottage, you will find the ‘old man’s park’, with glorious views overlooking Danby Dale.

Sheep love to graze nearby so you may have to share your viewing spot! It's a joy to explore the village and its surroundings.

Local brews and locally sourced food can be sampled at a variety of pubs and traditional inns.

A pub lunch is the perfect way to unwind after a day of exploring your exceptional surroundings.

Right next to the station, you'll find the charming Eskdale Restaurant, which serves tasty fare and fine wines.

The Down Arms, located just around the corner, offers hearty pub fare and a welcoming atmosphere in addition to traditional pub fare. If you're looking for basic supplies, logs, or sticks, there's a Co-op around the corner and up the High Street.

Along the High Street you will also find a lovely tearoom, where you can sample a sweet treat!

The nearby villages and the historic fishing port of Whitby can easily be reached by train for memorable day trips. Castleton is a great starting point for hikers because of its proximity to The Esk Valley Walk.

Long-distance walkers can break it up into five stages and take the train or their car along for the ride.

You can find all the information you need in the cottage.

Danby Lodge and The Moors National Park Centre is located nearby and provides information on a wide range of attractions and destinations.

The staff are very accommodating.

From there, you can take a number of scenic walks.

If you need help, just ask the friendly staff at the visitor centre.

Be sure to pick up a souvenir from their gift shop to remember your trip by.

There is a railway station serving the Esk Valley and Whitby, which also links with the steam line to the attractive market town of Pickering.
