Description from the owner
Characterful, quirky and cosy 19th century Cottage approached down a country lane over a hump back bridge, nestling in a dreamy quiet hamlet close to Whitby. Just Fantastic.
Welcoming snug lounge with exposed beams, inglenook fireplace, stove, traditional pine floors and stairs, morning room and unusual attic twin bedroom (children love this room) with original steeper cottage stairs provoke and spark the imagination with both charm and interest. Wonderfully cheerful courtyard garden to relax and enjoy a glass of wine or mug of coffee.
Take yourself back in time and skim some stones on the stream, Train spot, visit Falling Foss,...Read more
