Region: The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.
Town: The village of Sleights is equally well placed for a coastal or countryside holiday. It is just four miles from the fabulous Yorkshire coastline and on the edge of the impressive moors. The village is peaceful but has a variety of amenities including a fish and chip shop, two public houses and a post office, as well as a selection of interesting shops and attractions. The North Yorkshire Steam Railway terminus is only a few minutes drive from Sleights and there is public transport to and from Whitby, which is only four miles away. The port of Whitby has winding streets and dark hidden alleyways and was one of the inspirations for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The famous ruin of Whitby Abbey, high on East Cliff, is an impressive attraction and the village of Sleights makes an ideal base for exploring this stunning part of the country.

our second visit to this cottage and we were every bit as delighted as we were the first time. First impressions must be the incredible view from the sitting room window, wish we could bottle it and take it home !!. The cottage is very well equipped and extremely comfortable and clean, owner's on hand if needed and an excellent base for exploring north Yorkshire

We only chose Bracken Edge as our second choice and how glad we were that we did.
It was just like home from home and the owners went the extra mile with toiletries etc. It was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable with comfy chairs and nice beds. The view from the property was to die for and the little conservatory at the rear was the perfect place for morning coffee and afternoon tea (can recommend the sticky buns from the bakery in the village. We met the owner Hazel who was very friendly and said if we had any problems she lived just down the lane.
I would highly recommend the property on all counts and we had a fabulous week there.
