Sycamore Cottage is located at Thirley Cotes Farm a grade two listed property near the village of Harwood Dale in the North York Moors. It is the largest of four barn conversions at the farm featuring 'upside down' accommodation with five bedrooms on the ground floor and open plan living space upstairs. From March 2018 Sycamore Cottage will have its own 8 seater hot tub and enclosed terrace area. The site is very private and peaceful and offers plenty of parking, a large shared outside lawn and amenity field and an indoor games facility. There is a play area for the younger children too who must be supervised if under 12 years old.
The barn has many original features retained including the large wooden trusses and characterful yorkshire stone featured walls. It is a very spacious property ideal for a family get together or group of friends all wanting a relaxing environment to enjoy.
Thirley Cotes Farm offers a stunning location, only a few miles from Scarborough and Whitby but slightly inland offering great views of the surrounding fields and woodlands which have numerous walks and cycle tracks to enjoy. We even have our own 4 acre woodland for you to explore although young children do need supervision as the area includes a stream and watercourse .
There are many attractions and activities nearby to keep everyone busy. Dalby forest has fabulous world class mountain biking, there's Go Ape for the adventurous, trips to the traditional seaside resorts of Scarborough and Whitby or one of many beautiful fishing villages like Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood's Bay are all very close by. The RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs is worth a visit, home to thousands of nesting sea birds.
Further inland, the medieval city of York is an hour away, or take a steam train journey through the North York Moors into Goathland countryside made famous as Aidensfield in the TV series 'Heartbeat'.
Thirley Cotes Farm is also where our business 'Cottage Escapes' is based, so we are tucked away onsite to make sure you have everything you'll need for a great holiday.
