Looking out onto a beautiful moors village, Egton Cottage is a gorgeous stone-built cottage housing accommodation over three floors. With its country-chic interiors, picture-postcard location and views of the North York Moors beyond the garden fence, it’s an idyllic country retreat for couples and young families alike.
The interior of Egton Cottage is a classic country, with all of the contemporary comforts thrown in. The character of the building has been preserved with exposed stonework, ceiling beams and aged timber /stone floors featured throughout.
Downstairs in this North York Moors cottage, you’ll find a cosy lounge with a wood-burning stove and a stunning farmhouse kitchen complete with Belfast sink, butcher’s block, and flagstone flooring. Patio doors lead out to the garden giving the kitchen a sense of space and light. It also allows you to enjoy the views of the North York Moors over breakfast at your kitchen table.
There is a central hallway in the cottage with winding stairs leading up to the family bathroom and bedrooms above. There is also a convenient Cloakroom down here. Parents should note there is a section of the open staircase from the hallway up to the first floor, so can we please ask to take extra care with children.
The family bathroom has a lovely roll-top bath, perfect for sinking into each evening, and there is a separate stand-in shower. It has a bright, fresh look – just what you want in a country cottage bathroom.
The first of the bedrooms is a lovely twin room with a white and blue theme. There is also ample room in here for a travel cot, and this can be supplied if required. The master bedroom occupies the top floor. A lovely cosy room with seagrass flooring, a substantial antique iron bed, luxury bed linen and exposed brickwork. A gorgeous space to retreat to after a busy day exploring.
To the rear of this luxury cottage, there is a lovely patio area and lawned garden, a lovely spot for al fresco dining in the summer months. And plenty of room for little ones to run around in too.
Egton Cottage is situated, in our opinion, in one of the prettiest villages in the North York Moors.
The village boasts several pubs, one of which is a fabulous gastro pub, locally renowned for its excellent menu. There are several more fantastic restaurants and gastro pubs within a few minutes drive.
Egton village is famous for the annual gooseberry show every August, thought to be the oldest of its kind in England.
This area of the Moors is incredibly blessed with countless pretty towns and villages within easy driving distance, with the added advantage of having the Yorkshire Coast and Whitby within a few miles.
Local attractions include the steam trains of the North York Moors Railway at Grosmont, the stunning beaches at Sandsend and Whitby and the landscape of the great moors all around.
