Old Stone Rental, Dairy House, North York Moors & Coast

Sleeps 6, Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 2, Price from £453

The cottage, which has been given a Quality in Tourism Walkers Welcome award, is situated close to Manor Farmhouse, high on the moors in a quiet National Park village above Newtondale.

In the 19th century, the property housed a horse-driven threshing machine, and more recently it became a dairy and featured a unique stone fireplace, along with massive timber beams, which may have come from oaks in Newtondale or from ships broken up at Whitby.

Ecologically aware, Dairy House offers spacious accommodation over two floors with three bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room, and provides a light and airy feel, whilst it also feels cosy in winter.

A livery is available, by arrangement, for those with horses, and footpaths nearby wander through wildflower pasture and beautiful woodlands.

Also enjoy a steam railway ride, which takes you up the valley and across the moors to the coast – one of the most spectacular railway journeys in Britain.

A delightful cottage is offering peace and tranquillity.
