About the local area

To the north of York lies the North York Moors, a national park and one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the UK. The area is bordered by the awe-inspiring North Sea coast cliffs and the Cleveland and Hambleton Hills.

Wild and windswept, the landscape of the North York Moors is breathtaking. Visitors will find miles of purple heather moorland, dense pine forests, hills and coastline. The space and solitude of the moors and its hidden valleys contrasts with the busy villages and towns found dotted in and around the area. They provide excellent opportunities to stop for a drink, a meal or for a taste of culture and tradition, from ancient castles to modern day attractions.

Many visit for the outdoor pursuits on offer. There are thousands of kilometres of paths and tracks to follow on the moors, from short strolls to days-long treks. For serious walkers, hikers and cyclists, the North York Moors are crossed by a number of long distance footpaths, including the Cleveland Way and the famed Coast to Coast walk. For a more leisurely but no less stunning experience, travel the 18 mile journey on the steam railway from Grosmont to Pickering, right through the Moors.

Visit popular destinations in and around the national park. Rievaulx Abbey and its landscape gardens are beautiful, while Helmsley and Pickering are both renowned for their ancient castles. For family-friendly options, try the grounds of Castle Howard or the Ryedale Miniature Railway, as well as the coastline dotted with rock pools and gentle waves.

What our customers say about Aban Cottage

R Moore -

An excellent property that was well maintained with caring owners, I would definitely recommend staying at this cottage.


P Case -

Lovely cottage in a nice quiet location. Friendly helpful owners. Highly recommended.


J Herbertson -

Beautiful restoration and very tastefully equipped and furnished. Delightful owners. We would certainly come back another time.


J D Slocombe -

Its a lovely cottage in a great location. Quiet and relaxing but not too far from lots of places of interest. The owners are friendly and welcoming and work hard to make their cottage comfortable and well presented.


A Howarth -

We have taken several short breaks through this company and every cottage we have stayed in has been excellent; however, this was the best cottage so far. The cottage was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, with a cosy front room and good sized kitchen & dining area. At the back was a lovely small garden, where the owners (next door) put bird food out every day, which drew in a wide variety of species to watch over the washing up! The main bedroom was delightful, with exposed stone wall and brass bed. Our children also loved the "secret" door and narrow steps to the upstairs bedroom. Both bedrooms had a lovely view onto fields, disappearing into the distance, with hardly a sign of civilsation. The cottage was wonderfully quiet, yet within walking distance of a fine pub. In a word; perfect!


S Simpson -

It was one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in:- - it was equiped and furnished to a high standard. - renovated in such a way that it retained plenty of character yet very usable and very cosy. - The owners (next door) were very hospitable and helpful without being intrusive. - for an old property it was well heated (electricity was included in the price rather than being charged seperately)and it was great that there was an unlimited supply of logs for the wood burning stove. Such a nice change not to be charged for the heating (it's so annoying when you have to pay for the hidden extras such as electricity). - location was very handy for exploring the area yet it was so peaceful - just what we needed. We would certainly recommend the property to friends and family.


A beautifully restored cottage, extemely comfortable and spotlessly clean. Such a peaceful location too.


J D Slocombe -

This is a lovely property in a good location. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There is a new kitchen and shower since our last visit which has made the stay even better.

Nt Wood -

Very clean and comfortable cottage with heeps of charm. Very friendly owner and perfect location for exploring the moors.


C Walker -

The cleanest holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The cottage itself was incredibly welcoming and a lovely place to be. The garden was lovely and a lot of work and care had gone into both the cottage and the garden yet both were still very comfortable places to be and had lots of character. There were lots of details: the fabulous wood burning stove, tea, milk etc and biscuits on arrival. bubble bath and shower gel, lots of clothes storage and coat hangers, games to play, lots of information about the area, plenty of cooking utensils as we like to cook, the weather was a bit chilly and certain storage heaters were on to creat the perfect temperature inside ....... At the end of the holiday no one wanted to go home, one of our best holidays!
