Outside, a secluded and picturesque garden is well stocked with mature planting which comes alive during the summer months. A gravelled seating area provides generous and comfortable outdoor furniture to make the most of this charming garden. The small and unspoilt farming village of Gillamoor is famous for breath-taking panoramic views of Douthwaite Dale and the moor beyond. Perfectly positioned as a base for walking and cycling within the North Yorkshire National Park, with many walks starting from the doorstep! The market town of Kirkbymoorside has a good selection of shops and is only a 3 mile drive or a 1.5 mile walk along a footpath. Local attractions include many historic buildings including Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall, Duncombe Park and Rievaulx Abbey. The market towns of Kirkbymoorside, Helmsley and Pickering, famous for its steam railway station, the historic town of York and the quaint fishing villages of Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay are all an easy drive away. You are spoilt for choice for places to eat and drink with a wealth of cosy pubs and plenty of award-winning eateries in the vicinity, including the Royal Oak in Gillamoor itself. For keen golfers, Kirkbymoorside Golf Course is only a couple of miles away. Additional Information: Sorry, no pets. Underfloor heating in both bathrooms. Travel cot and highchair available on request. Bike storage can be arranged.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Nice cottage to stay in, good location.
Back now after spending a week in this cottage. Lovely place to stay, very homely and the welcome food basket is a bonus along with extras in the fridge. Garden layout slightly different from photos but didn't have any effect on our stay. If a couple ask for the twin beds to be put together in the back bedroom - makes it a huge bed and a bit quieter.
