Pheasants Roost is a shepherd’s hut style property nestled in a hedgerow within the owner’s grounds in the pretty hamlet village of Thorpe Bassett, near the market town of Malton. This quiet setting is perfect for couples looking to enjoy a getaway with a quirky twist. With mature hedgerows either side of the hut and stunning views across open pasture and onwards to the Howardian Hills, guests can relax and recharge their batteries in the private wood-fired tub. There are no bubbles in this tub which makes for a relaxing experience that enables you to enjoy the tranquillity of the Yorkshire countryside.
Pheasants Roost has a small open plan living space but is perfectly formed, the hut has been tastefully decorated in soft pastel shades with a country feel. The functional kitchen is ideal to rustle up delicious meals which can be enjoyed alfresco on the patio area should the weather allow. The property has a cosy wood burner for those cooler evenings but should you prefer, there is an electric eco heater for instant heat. After a long day of exploring, why not cosy up in the open plan living space, or enjoy a barbecue whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings?
This stunning area of North Yorkshire is a haven for keen ramblers, cyclists and dog lovers as there are numerous walking routes and cycle tracks right outside your door. If you can tear yourselves away from this charming property, the town of Malton, known as Yorkshire’s Food Capital, is a short drive away and has many independent shops, cafés, delis and eateries. Visiting during one of Malton’s famous food festivals is an absolute must. The stately home of Castle Howard, home of Brideshead Revisited and ITV’s ‘Victoria’, has a packed events program throughout the year and is absolutely worth a visit, especially during their Christmas opening. With easy access to York, the East Coast and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, Pheasants Roost is simply perfect for a lovely break with a difference at any time of the year. Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
Pheasants Roost can be booked together with Rose Cottage (CC233052) to accommodate up to 6 guests.

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.
