Property code: 56590

The property has a stylish finish, with attention to detail, yet provides a cosy home from home to enjoy the magnificent scenery that surrounds the cottage and lovely dark skies.

From rolling moorland panoramas and dark, starry skies to rugged coast, enchanting forests and idyllic dales, the North Yorkshire Moors are a doggy’s paradise. Spend the day walking, hiking and scampering through the breathtaking landscape, before returning to this charming cottage to recharge the batteries with a glass of wine and a belly rub!

Stylish yet cosy, this welcoming home from home boasts magnificent scenery and lovely dark skies, giving a sense of peace and tranquillity. Return from a day in the elements with windswept fur to kick off wet boots and wipe muddy paws to trot in the cosy open-plan living space. Your pup can curl up on his favourite blanket as you make a cuppa and sink on to the sofa to rest your weary legs. In warm weather open the double doors to let in the breeze as your pup happily potters in the garden. On the decking sit and enjoy the fabulous scenery whilst dining alfresco as your canine chum scampers and snuffles about the lawn. As the sun goes down, grab a blanket and enjoy some star gazing before retreating in doors to snuggle on the sofa in the flickering light of the wood burner as your happy hound dozes in pole position!

Castleton has a shop, tearoom and pub, so take a morning potter to get the paper. Head to the coast to chase the waves along the shingle and sand at Saltburn (9.8 miles), Whitby (17.5 miles) and Sandsend (13.5 miles) whilst Runswick Bay (11.5 miles) has rockpools, coastal walks and breathtaking sea views. For a mosaic of woodlands, wetlands and grassland visit Guisborough Forest and Walkway (11.5 miles), and for a fantastic day walking and climbing head to Roseberry Topping (13.5 miles). Slightly further afield is the bustling market town of Pickering (21.5 miles) with its historic castle, Dalby Forest with miles of cycle tracks to enjoy and the beautiful Castle Howard.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
