Description

Standing peacefully in one of the prettiest villages in Britain, this delightful single-storey holiday cottage was originally an old farm building. With thick stone walls and a lovely wood burner, visitors can be cosy throughout the entire year. Furnished with great care and attention to detail, the cottage has a very well-equipped kitchen/dining room, a comfortable, spacious living room and two beautifully coordinated bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room. All on one level but, please note that it is not specifically designed for people with mobility problems. It has a pretty enclosed garden, Newstead Cottage is the perfect choice for a relaxing holiday.

From the garden, a private pathway leads towards the village of Thornton-le-Dale, with its beautiful cottages with country gardens and a babbling brook running alongside the street. Within a short walk from the cottage, the highly picturesque village is centred on a tiny triangular green with its market cross and stocks, and an interesting selection of shops, inns and tearooms. The North York Moors and Dalby Forest provide fantastic opportunities for walking, cycling, nature watching and stargazing. The North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway runs from Pickering, which travels through stunning scenery to the fishing port of Whitby. Family fun can be found at Flamingo Land and Go Ape Treetop Adventure in the Dalby Forest. Robin Hood’s Bay, Scarborough and the Yorkshire Wolds are all within a 30-minute drive. York with its Minster, museums and historic centre can also be reached within a 30-minute drive. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

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.
