Enjoy a special break with loved ones in this beautiful converted police station, with sumptuous stylish furnishings, electric gates and hot tub, this relaxing retreat will provide a memorable stay.

Escape to the outskirts of the wonderfully scenic North York Moors National Park for a rural retreat with loved ones. Welcoming four-legged friends too, head out for days full of adventure before returning back to the village for a yummy bite to eat or a home-cooked meal. Fill hungry tummies then soak the night away in the hot tub whilst furry friends roam the outdoor space in search of holiday scents.

Greeted by contemporary charm, step inside this property and make the most of all it has to offer. The open-plan living space consists of a cosy lounge, sleek kitchen and charming dining arrangement where two sets of patio doors bring the outside in and create a bright ambience. Rustle up a storm and dine either inside or out, or make a warming cup of tea to enjoy in front of the TV on the welcoming corner sofa. Come rain or shine, while away evenings in the sheltered hot tub and bubble away the aches and pains of muscles which have spent the day exploring. As the night draws in, say goodnight to canine companions and sidle off to enjoy a comfortable sleep in one of two bedrooms. One bedroom is on the ground floor with access to a modern bathroom and the other is on the first floor and is treated to an en-suite shower room.

Head into the local village of Great Ayton to enjoy a plethora of walks and hikes; climb Roseberry Topping for spectacular views and pass Captain Cook’s Monument on the way as canine companions stretch their legs. Work up an appetite then devour a portion of tasty fish and chips on your way home. 4.5 miles from home lies the charming market town of Stokesley where you can also hop on the Cleveland Way.

We had a lovely week staying at this property. Great Ayton is a lovely village which has a stream with a little waterfall and shops. It is only a 10 min drive away to Guisborough Forest, Roseberry Toppings and Kildale Waterfall and a 20 min drive to Saltburn Beach and Tees Barrage. All lovely places and dog friendly.
