This is the perfect place for those who want that to unwind and in relax in the hot tub or explore village pubs, shops and cafes within easy walking distance. Enjoy the river that meanders through and make the most of the glorious surrounding countryside.

Every dog has its day, and so will you when you stay in this enchanting cottage nestled within the riverside village of Great Ayton. Sleeping two humans and a canine companion, the property is a captivating combination of traditional charm and contemporary elegance, providing the perfect sanctuary for cosy breaks. Sniff for rabbits throughout the North York Moors National Park and enjoy hearty feasts beside the fire in welcoming pubs. At the end of a busy day, there’s nothing quite like returning to snuggle up by the TV with the one you love and your waggy-tailed chum.

 

Beneath the cheerful exterior is a stylish haven with exposed bricks, tasteful furniture, and sophisticated decor. Wipe down messy paws before sending Fido skittering across the wooden floor in search of treats whilst you crack open the wine and relax in the lounge area. A sleek galley-style kitchen will be the envy of any enthusiastic cook, and there’s a handy dining space for leisurely meals by candlelight. Upstairs, the fabulous bathroom is top dog for a spot of pampering and the bedroom will prove far too tempting for a restful night’s slumber. Sip drinks under the stars in your private courtyard with unique couple's hotub, or don your glad rags in the upstairs dressing room ready for an evening meal in one of the nearby pubs. Off-road parking is subject to availability at the nearby free car park.

 

Stretch all four limbs as you explore near and far, following the Cleveland Way through the heather-clad wilderness to really take in the astounding landscape of the North York Moors. Stretching from Helmsley to Whitby, you can access the route at various points such as Roseberry Topping 2 miles away, where you can scamper up the rolling hills to admire the views.

Despite the few comments above (which are easily rectified) this is a cottage of a high standard - very attractively presented with all important mod-cons!. Great Ayton is a really nice place with good facilities and close to several attractive areas to visit plus the opportunity for many walks in glorious country-side. I would definitely recommendRead more this holiday cottage and may well use it again. Hide

Fantastic little cottage which felt both modern and clean but with homely charm at the same time. Perfect size for two people. Josh and Laura were great hosts - they sent us a list of pubs and restaurants before we went and were really responsive whenever we needed to contact them. The property is in a good position on the high street, an easy walkRead moreing distance to the local pubs and shops. I would thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay for a few nights away. Hide
