Property code: 79105

Cosy romantic cottage in wonderful picturesque surroundings which is perfect for a couples retreat with your own hot tub.

This gorgeous Grade II-listed cottage, in the chocolate-box village of Normanby, sleeps two guests and one furry friend. Enjoy numerous dog walks from the village through the Yorkshire countryside, or hop in the car with the pup and head to Helmsley (10 miles away) to explore the castle and walled gardens. You’re also less than 30 miles from the seaside town of Whitby, with its exquisite seafood and dramatic coastline.

 

The cosy cottage is full of little touches to make your stay feel extra special, including the plush soft furnishings and stylish feature fireplace in the lounge. After a day of exploring with the hound, curl up on the comfy sofa and browse through the extensive film selection on the Smart TV. The chic kitchen has all you need to rustle up a tasty meal, and from here there is direct access to the outdoor area, so Fido can potter in and out as you cook. On a summer’s evening, dine under the stars and relax in the private hot tub, before retiring to the romantic bedroom with its sumptuous king-size bed.

 

The hound will adore Helmsley Walled Garden, at the foot of the North York Moors. The 5-acre garden is a haven of tranquillity and your four-legged friend will find plenty of new scents to investigate. Afterwards, you can all grab a refreshment in the woof-friendly cafe. If you fancy stretching your legs and paws a bit more, there’s a lovely 2.5-mile walk from the castle, which is perched on the hill above the gardens, to the fascinating ruins of Rievaulx Abbey. Whitby also makes a fantastic day out. Stride out along the wild and windy cliffs to the old smugglers’ haunt of Robin Hood’s Bay, before returning for fish and chips on the beach as the sun sets.

Cottage is quaint and well decorated but very small with low doorways and steep stairs. Garden is smaller than pictured, looks to have been greatly reduced in size since pics were taken. Otherwise clean, hot tub is lovely, great pub over the road but not sure it was value for money when compared to other cottages we've stayed in.

Beautifully renovated cosy cottage, with superb enclosed garden and added bonus of covered hot tub; just a perfect place to relax and unwind. Good location with the coast and places such as York all within easy reach by car. The hot tub developed a fault during our stay but Sarah, our lovely host (who lives in the adjoining cottage) quickly called Read morean engineer and the pump was soon replaced so we were able to enjoy relaxing in the hot tub during a week of good weather again.

Lovely cottage in a lovely little village , very cosy and peaceful. The hot tub is brilliant and just what you need after a long walk in the countryside.. Towels provided fior the hot tub and shower , so no need to take any towels apart from a hand towel. Lots of walks to do near the cottage and places to visit,

This is a lovely cottage with a private hottub. We really enjoyed our stay there, it was really nice and quiet and we managed to disconnected from everything and just have the weekend to relax and recharge. The cottage was beautifully decorated and we liked everything about it.

Very lovely cottage and brilliant location. The hot tub is a luxury but based on other cottages we have stayed at, this was the only luxury. Also, we could not see in description any information about the toilet being downstairs. Had we been aware of this, especially with the very steep stairs, we would not have booked. Local pub food is lovely butRead more be aware, very generous portions. Ate there 3 times. Hide
