The welcoming lounge, with plenty of soft leather sofas to curl up on, is a wonderful space in which to relax and socialise. Light up the wood burner in the evening and enjoy some good conversation over a bottle of wine, or dim the lights and watch a film together. Enjoy a leisurely coffee at the breakfast bar in the bright, country kitchen, with its decorative wall tiles and a warming Aga. The dining area sits just next to the kitchen and enjoys the benefit of plenty of natural light and has lovely views to the garden outside.

The beautiful south-facing garden has a lawn area, perfect for stretching out with a blanket and a good book in the summer months. There's also a terrace for al-fresco dining and a BBQ house which is useable throughout the year. Lockable storage for bikes is available, and if you haven't brought your own, there are mountain and road bikes available that you can hire during your stay.

Nestling in an absolutely magical spot at the edge of the village of Goathland (famous as the location for the TV series Heartbeat) it's within short walking distance of everything that this stunning moorland village has to offer. There are a handful of gorgeous little tea-rooms, sweet village shops, a Post Office and several good pubs all offering good food and all within a few minutes' walk of the property. The beautifully preserved heritage train station at Goathland, famed for its alternative life as Hogsmeade station in the popular Harry Potter films, sits on the North York Moors Railway line from Whitby to Pickering. You can hop on a steam train here throughout the year and enjoy a traditional ride through some truly stunning scenery.

If you enjoy the outdoors you are in heaven here as the cottage is set at the heart of the North York Moors National Park. There are walking trails in every direction. Unenclosed and unsurpassed this stunning landscape, famed for its wild moorland, hidden dales, pretty villages and market towns, is simply breathtaking. See if you can discover one of the several waterfalls in the area including Mallyan Spout, Falling Foss, and Thomason Foss.

Take a tour of the impossibly pretty towns and villages in the area, Whitby and Egton (both 10 miles). A few miles east from here takes you to the stunning North Yorkshire coastline, a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, this is proper bucket 'n spade territory. That's not to say it's stuck in the past, in fact the coast's villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside upmarket champagne and oyster bars.

The house was characterful and well appointed. Plenty of space for our party of 6 and the games room was a real bonus for our younger teenagers particularly in the dark rainy evenings. The linen and quilts were of very good quality and the beds were very comfortable. All in all for October half term in this country it was a very pleasant break.
