Elegant holiday cottage enjoying stunning views of the North York Moors from every room, offering the perfect base for lovers of outdoor pursuits with picture-perfect countryside surrounding you.

Located within a pretty little hamlet, complete with local pub, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, this cottage is somewhat of a haven for those who enjoy the great outdoors. The Moors cover an area of almost 600 square miles yearning to be explored, so if you're keen to get your walking boots on, you won't be short of picturesque walking trails so take your pick. The town of Helmsley, a great destination for foodies, is within driving distance. Here you can enjoy quaint tea-rooms, restaurants and welcoming pubs that are sure to hit the spot.


This countryside cottage has been crafted from an old farm building into a lovingly restored 21st-century retreat that is bursting with character throughout. As you enter, you'll make your way to the attractive kitchen, fully stocked so that guests are able to cook up a storm using fresh local produce. As you move through the property, you'll step into the elegant open-plan lounge and dining area. The lounge comes complete with cosy wood burner so you can finish your day by cosying up in front of the TV and roaring fire. The light-filled dining area offers ample space for the entire group to enjoy formal dining. Following a day of discovery, retreat to one of the two beautifully finished bedrooms that promise a restful night's sleep. Both bedrooms come complete with en-suite bathrooms, with the master boasting a bathtub to sink into.


Immediately to the front of the cottage is an enclosed, south-facing garden, perfect for guests with four-pawed friends in town. The lawned and gravelled area comes complete with garden furniture, so you can make the most of the warmer months and enjoy a bite to eat as you take in your peaceful surroundings.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Cottage was fabulous and the welcome pack was a nice touch, thank you. Two very small grumbles. Firstly the grill, oven and bedroom TV's did not work. We didn't worry as we were only there for the weekend but could be an issue if we were there longer. Secondly, we arrived quite late and as it was dark we could not find the property. Some clearer inRead morestructions/directions would be helpful. Maybe mention the car park is near the Village Hall. Over all, a very enjoyable stay and we will be back. Hide

Beautiful cottage in beautiful location. Under floor heating on flagstone floor was lovely for an autumn break. Pub nearby was great- good food and very welcoming landlady.

We had a wonderful stay in this delightful, quality cottage! Thank you so much for the welcome pack of bread, butter, milk and wine. If you like some- where quiet, but in reach of many places to visit, walks from your door step, with stunning views and friendly locals then this is the place for you.

Excellent location for hardy walkers, lovely cottage comfortably coping with four adults. Country pub, just 50 yards away, and serving very good food.

We really enjoyed this cottage - well equipped, and modern decor. Local access to good walking & mountain biking. It didnt bother us, but if you are looking to tour the area, the cottage does involve a 20-30min drive each time you want to get to a main road and access the coast, or local larger times

East Steading is in a wonderful remote-feeling location. The cottage was immaculately clean and well presented although the sitting and dining area was rather snug for four adults.

We loved the cottage but do have a couple of small comments. 1. It would be nice to have details of the nearest vet in the cottage info. Just for peace of mind in case of emergency 2. It would be good to include a vegetable peeler in the kitchen utensils. 3. Would be handy to mention the available recycling in the cottage guide.

The property was delightful, clean, well equipped and maintained, warm and comfortable. It's located in a small hamlet in a valley below Blackey Ridge which is quiet with wonderful views and walking.
