Set in one of the most picturesque villages of the North York Moors National Park, this beautiful, detached stone-built cottage oozes charm and character. The accommodation is stylishly presented and very spacious, with a farmhouse-style breakfast kitchen and two living rooms, one with a cosy fire and the other overlooking the pretty south-facing garden. Hutton-le-Hole is home to the Ryedale Folk Museum, which gives a unique glimpse into the past rural way of life and the village has a delightful selection of craft shops, tea rooms and a traditional inn serving good food. The River Beck runs through the village, where the sheep peacefully roam the grassy banks and there are walking and cycling tracks galore. The quaint market towns of Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley are close by, where there are top quality and quirky shops to browse through, renowned restaurants and delicatessens and attractions including the Helmsley Walled Garden and the International Centre of Birds of Prey at Duncombe Park. The famous North York Moors steam train departs from Pickering (9 miles) and transports passengers to the fishing port of Whitby, and the traditional seaside resorts of Scarborough and Filey are also within an hour’s drive. There are miles of sandy beaches along the coastline and fascinating coves at Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes. Try mountain biking at Dalby Forest or enjoy family fun at Go Ape and Flamingo Land. There are abbey ruins to visit at Rievaulx and Byland and stately homes at Nunnington Hall and Castle Howard or take a day trip to the historic city of York (35 miles). Shop 3½ miles, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
Beck Garth is a fabulous cottage with everything you could ask for in a holiday rental and more! The rooms are furnished to a high standard and we especially loved the snug with the open fire. The beds were all comfortable and there was plenty of room for our family. The village is beautiful too and we loved visiting the craft shops and local tea rooms. The Crown pub does excellent food and is just over the road. All in all we have had a fabulous holiday and would love to visit again. We could not fault a thing about the cottage.
