The perfect rural retreat for families looking to explore the natural beauty and enjoy the tasty treats of the North York Moors before heading home to snuggle up in front of the fire.

This pretty cottage in the peaceful village of Gillamoor is surrounded by spectacular countryside, set in the North York Moors National Park. Sleeping four humans and two history-loving hounds, there is much to explore in this rugged landscape. It’s perfectly placed for families who want to enjoy all that the region has to offer. You’re just 8 miles from the Blakey Ridge walking trail with its memorable views, while the rolling moorland and country landscape will appeal to your inquisitive four-legged friends. There’s a foodie pub within walking distance and a shop nearby (2.5 miles), while off-road parking is available for guests.

Step inside where a welcome pack and cosy country style awaits. Relax with your pup pals by the wood burner in the spacious open-plan living room and dining area, packed with period features, plus a TV and DVD player. Rustle up family meals in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoy the garden views. Discover two country-style bedrooms upstairs, plus a family bathroom. Outside, you’ll find a courtyard at the front of the house, and an enclosed garden to the rear - great for hounds. The south-facing garden is lawned with mature trees; the perfect location for a glass of wine and a BBQ on a warm, summer's evening.

Explore the natural beauty of this magnificent region with its rugged moorland, meandering walks and ancient woods, abundant with canine-thrilling wildlife and birdlife, including curlew, lapwing and red grouse; the Cleveland Way National Trail is a popular choice (7.5 miles). Enjoy shopping and exploring quintessential English market towns and villages such as Hutton-le-Hole (2.5 miles), Helmsley (7.5 miles) and Pickering (10 miles) where you can savour delicious local food produce and artisan treats in the cafes and eateries, and visit landmarks including the arts centre, medieval castle, and historic walled garden in Helmsley.

This charming prospect enjoys an enviable location; sitting at the edge of Gillamoor, an attractive North York Moors village, the local village pub is just a few minutes' walk away. A few miles in the other direction takes you to the pretty town of Kirkbymoorside (2.5 miles) and then on to vibrant and attractive Yorkshire market towns like Pickering (10 miles) and Helmsley (8 miles); both of which have an abundance of good restaurants, tea-rooms and independent shops. Beyond the village lies the North York Moors. A landscape like no other, it's a place of gentle rolling hills of heather, ancient woodlands and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys.

If you want to get away from it all take a trip to the top of the high central moorlands. The famous Blakey Ridge affords some of the best views in the country is just a few minutes' drive from the cottage. And if walking is your thing, you are surrounded by some truly stunning routes. Hutton-le-Hole, quite possibly the most beautiful village in the North York Moors, is just around the corner and you're also close to Castle Howard and York, so lots of choice for day trips.

Please note there are no charging facilities for electric cars - the nearest points are Monks Cross Shopping Park (27 miles) and York (29 miles) but also check online for updated information.

Beautiful cottage 5 minute walk from local pub with good beer and food. Log burner with free logs supplied. One of the best cottages weve stayed at. We highly recommend it.

Reviewed by Jenny 23rd October 2018

We had a wonderful week in this lovely cottage. The only slight comment Id make would be that the living accommodation is quite dark. Plenty lights, but time of year and positioning of cottage meant that we needed to use the lights. That is fairly minor as both Steve and Georgina are excellent hosts and SO helpful.

Response from Canine Cottages:

Hi Mandy,Thank you for taking the time to complete a review it is appreciated! I am delighted you loved your stay and I agree the cottage is in a great location. I am sorry that you experienced back ache from the mattress. The owners do turn the mattress on the suggested 12 week cycle and the owners would have been happy to turn this for you if they knew you had issues with it. I am delighted that you would stay in Barley Cottage again and we do look forward to welcoming you back to Yorkshire. Take care!Louise Hide
