Description

This contemporary, luxurious holiday apartment is conveniently located in a beautiful rural setting. Situated in the village of Fylingthorpe in the Yorkshire Moors National Park, Ash Cottage is a wonderful base from which to explore all the hidden delights that this area of Yorkshire has to offer, from smugglers’ coves along the Yorkshire Heritage Coast, to the hustle and bustle in the famous fishing town of Whitby with its regattas, Goth weekends, restaurants and cafes. Just over a mile from the unspoilt village of Robin Hood’s Bay which nestles into the cliffs of the Heritage Coast, just one of the nearby hidden beach gems to explore. There is an abundance of walks and cycle tracks for ramblers and cyclists to take advantage of, as well as the Esk Valley and its stunning scenery, best enjoyed from the windows of the steam train that travels right into the heart of the Yorkshire Moors National Park. The medieval walled city of York is just an hour away and is host to many attractions including the National Railway Museum, the magnificent minster and the Yorkshire Castle Museum. After a day of exploring, there is no better way to relax than a dip in the spa-style Jacuzzi bath, or enjoy a drink on the raised terrace overlooking a beautiful, tranquil garden area. The cottage is perfectly kitted out with everything you could need for a stay in this wonderful part of the world. Shop 110 yards, pub and restaurant 140 yards.

About the local area

Found on North Yorkshire's east coast, Whitby is a picturesque seaside town brimming with maritime history and rich cultural heritage. Surrounded by the North York Moors National Park and beautiful coastline, the town and its nearby areas are brimming with attractions.

Nestled in valley at the mouth of the Esk River, Whitby is a great place to visit, with steep winding streets and little boutique shops selling local delicacies and handicrafts. Built on both river banks, it is unified by its landmark swing bridge that spans the water.

Visit the port where Captain Cook first took to the seas, the harbour framed by Grade II listed piers, each with its own lighthouse. Explore the Whitby Abbey ruins, home to the ancient poet Caedmon and St Mary's Church, which dominate the east bank; climb the 199 'Church Steps' to reach the graveyard on the cliff top.

The coastline is a part of the 'Jurassic Coast', renowned for its fossils. In Whitby, fossilised dinosaur footprints are found imprinted on the beach. To see a larger selection of local fossils, visit the Rotunda Museum in nearby Scarborough.

Whitby is small but culturally rich. There are museums, art galleries and also the Pavilion Theatre that hosts a range of events in the summer and the Bram Stoker Film Festival every October. A place of literary traditions it was, amongst other things, used as the setting for 'Dracula'.

There is a yearly regatta every August and numerous sea and land activities for adventurers, from the Cleveland Way to windsurfing and diving off the shore.
