The village of Carlton is less than a mile away where there is a famous cafe and tea room built into the moor at the top of Carlton Bank, in the Cleveland Hills and has stunning views of Teesside and the east coast. The elegant market town of Stokesley is just 3 miles away and is situated on the River Leven at the foot of the Cleveland Hills and is the gateway to the Moors and the East Yorkshire coast. Nearby is the beautiful village of Great Ayton (childhood home of the explorer Captain James Cook) and is perfect for a picnic and for feeding the ducks, and the nearby village of Chop Gate in Bilsdale with its widely renowned spectacular views. The area is a haven for keen walkers and cycle enthusiasts with some challenging pathways and cycle tracks right on your doorstep. Travelling slightly further afield you can appreciate other beautiful areas within the National Park, explore market towns such as Helmsley or the coastal resorts of Staithes and Whitby for a trip to the seaside. These lovely cottages are ideally situated to enable you to explore everything the North York Moors area has to offer.
