Property code: G0018

Situated in a tranquil village on the outskirts of the beautiful North York Moors, this stylish and inviting holiday cottage makes a perfect countryside retreat for families and couples alike.

Set at the gateway to the North York Moors National Park, this charming country cottage is set in the pretty village of Gillamoor. Surrounded by verdant countryside, heather-clad hills and ancient woodland, it’s ideal for families and fun-loving pup pals who adore nature and wildlife. Sleeping five guests across two bedrooms, there’s also an enclosed garden for your hounds to enjoy, a pub within walking distance, and a shop nearby (2 miles), plus parking for two cars. The friendly owners have thought of everything to make your stay a relaxing one.

Step inside to find a traditional country style and a warm welcoming feel from the open-plan kitchen, dining, and living space to the cosy bedrooms upstairs. Family mealtimes are a breeze in the well-equipped kitchen, while your brood unwinds by the cosy wood burner in the living room after another busy day of adventures. There is a seated BBQ patio and an enclosed lawned garden outside to keep hounds entertained, and slumber falls easily in the cosy bedrooms, which have wonderful views across the garden towards moorland.

Discover picturesque Hutton-le-Hole village (2.5 miles) and the handsome market towns of Kirkbymoorside (2.5 miles), Helmsley (8 miles) and Pickering (10 miles). Pop on your boots and go hiking through the North York Moors National Park (0.5 miles), Ravenswick Woods (3.5 miles) and the North Riding Forest Park (17.5 miles). History buffs and garden lovers should visit Castle Howard (15 miles) where dogs can enjoy bones from the farm shop, water bowls by the cafe, and a gift-laden garden centre where humans can source extra canine treats. Or spend time in Helmsley where you can visit the town’s medieval castle ruins, historic walled garden, and charming foodie inn where four-legged friends can curl up by an open fire while you enjoy refreshments.
