Description

Angel Cottage is situated near to the pretty village of Oswaldkirk, near the popular North York Moors market town of Helmsley. This two hundred year old period property is built from local stone and provides good quality, accessible accommodation for up to five guests. This is the ideal location for a family holiday spent exploring the North York Moors and east coast.

Entering straight into the kitchen you can’t help but notice the original stone floor which flows through much of the property. Well laid out and with a country feel this really will be the heart of your holiday home, and the addition of a breakfast table with bench seating adds to the character. The huge living/dining room has a vaulted ceiling and retains the original beams, but the real bonus to this room are the picture windows that span the full length. After a long day exploring the local area why not relax on one of the sofas that surround the traditional wood burner and enjoy your favourite movie on the large flat screen TV.

The master bedroom has a standard double bed and an electric single bed. A further twin room is situated just next door. The accommodation is completed with a wet room which has facilities for those who need assistance during their stay. Angel Cottage is tastefully decorated throughout and with good quality soft furnishings and deep, comfortable mattresses you are sure of a great night’s sleep.

Outside of the property there is a garage, ideal for storing bikes and any barbecue equipment, while to the rear is a lawned, unfenced area complete with seating and great views! The market town of Helmsley is just under three miles away and is noted as the ’Jewel in Yorkshire’s Crown’. Offering a plethora of independent shops, galleries and boutiques and too many bars and restaurants to count, there is so much on offer, from award winning delis to the very best in fine dining. Not to be missed during your stay are the National Centre for Birds of Prey at Duncombe Park, the castle and the walled garden.
The beauty of the North York Moors National Park is on your doorstep and is an absolute haven for nature lovers, walkers and cyclists alike. This area has so much to offer including the stunning East Yorkshire coastline, and for those wishing to enjoy a little more culture, the historic city of York is under 40 minutes’ drive away. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

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.
