Property code: 27112

Let no stick go unfetched in the vast North York Moors, and visit Yorkshire’s pretty coastal towns of Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington throughout your stay. Well-appointed to provide a comfortable home from home dog-walking retreat, this welcoming property sleeps four guests and your family’s beloved canine companion. Enjoy BBQ’s in the courtyard in the summer months and nod off in front of the TV as the nights draw in during the colder winter season.

 

All set out on one level, this comfortable and cosy barn conversion ticks all the boxes for your stay. The home maintains a traditional style throughout, presenting hard-wood furniture and floral soft furnishings. Head into the open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge to unwind as a family. Underfloor heating will be a true treat on cold winter mornings, and your four-pawed pals will appreciate the warmth after a long day of walkies. After a hearty dinner at the farmhouse dining table you can watch TV in the lounge with Fido curled up at your feet, retiring to bed and letting sleeping dogs lie here in comfort. Outside you’ll find a large enclosed courtyard, which is shared with the neighbouring property, perfect for exercising dogs before taking the lead and exploring the working farm.

 

Many of Yorkshire’s popular country spots can be found within close proximity, including the vast North York Moors beginning 2 miles down the road. In the spring, be sure to visit local Farndale (18 miles) to walk the famous Daffodil Dale route. If your pampered pet prefers to feel the sand beneath their paws then be sure to visit Cayton Bay (13.5 miles) or the glorious Robin Hood’s Bay (23 miles), both beach spots where dogs are allowed to splash around at will. Later, head to Whitby (22 miles), Scarborough (12.5 miles) or Bridlington (25 miles) for unforgettably fresh fish and chips (and perhaps a sausage for Fido).

Beautifully clean and cosy cottage, with everything we could possibly need. Lovely to have fresh eggs straight from the farm! The owners, Mary & Arthur, were very friendly and helpful. We would have loved to stay longer and would certainly recommend to friends & family, especially those with dogs. Thank you.
