Situated in a small hamlet in the North York Moors, there are 600 square miles of stunning, heather-coated countryside waiting to be discovered by foot or by car
If huge open spaces and deep wild forests are your pet’s idea of doggie heaven, then boy do we have the holiday cottage for you. This lovely farmhouse is located slap bang in the middle of the North York Moors National Park, a rural paradise with plenty to keep nature lovers and energetic canines happy. There are stunning views from the house, and that coupled with a gigantic garden and light-and-airy interior makes this the ideal location for your trip. The property, which accommodates up to six humans and two doggies, is in a complex of five dog-friendly properties of various sizes.
The house has a traditional look with its gorgeous stone exterior. This continues inside with the impressive cast iron range and low beamed ceilings. Mod cons such as underfloor heating and sophisticated decor contribute to the luxury feel. When you’re all dog tired after a long day out exploring, run a bubble bath and soak in the roll-top while your pet makes the most of the bathroom’s steamy warmth. When you’re done, you can relax by the wood burner until you get sleepy. Outside, enjoy morning coffee on the stone patio on mild days while the dog runs around on the lawn.
When it’s time to venture out, you’ll find plenty of trails starting from the front door that pass through the pretty surrounding villages. Church Houses, the hamlet in which the farmhouse is located, is famous for its daffodil walks. The market towns of Helmsley (14 miles) and Pickering (16 miles) are both worth a trip and the sea at Whitby is just 25 miles away.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
