Stay in this characterful cottage, which is the former childhood home of Captain Cook! With picturesque views and plenty of walks from the doorstep. Perfect for family and friends seeking adventure in and around the North Yorkshire Moors.

The attractive village of Great Ayton lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, at the foot of the Cleveland Hills. Great Ayton is famous for being the boyhood home of Captain Cook. Great Ayton has two village greens, with a river running alongside, making it a popular picnic spot. To the north of the village, the view is dominated by Roseberry Topping, a 330-metre hill. The village offers a good range of shops and inns, which, together with restaurants and cafes. There is also the old school, now converted into the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum. The coast is just over 12 miles away to Saltburn-By-The-Sea, a Victorian seaside resort including its pier, the colourful Italian Gardens and walks through Riftswood. Saltburn has the oldest water balanced cliff tramway in Britain and it is still in operation today.

On arrival, you will be quickly stunned by the view on the doorstep of Roseberry Topping and the proximity to which the cottage rests. Step inside the vestibule and then head through to the dining room which has a large dining table that can comfortably seat six. The lounge room leads from the dining room and has large windows providing lots of the morning sun through. At its heart is a wood burner, perfect for the chillier months. Sit back on the comfy sofas and put your feet up and watch a film on the Smart TV. Next door is a spacious modern kitchen yet retains character with the imposing stone wall. The kitchen has been equipped with everything you could need to rustle up delicious meals including an electric hob, oven, dishwasher and microwave, whilst the dining area provides the space to enjoy your meals over a well-deserved glass of wine. There is a washing machine - essential for those holiday practicalities. Choose from a ground floor double bedroom with an en-suite wet room and WC, a king-size and a twin room, all offering a range of contemporary furniture to store your personal items. Delight in the family bathroom with its corner bath and walk-in shower, so you can enjoy a warm soak in the tub at the end of a tiring day, or a quick shower to prepare for your day ahead. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful views of the hills and farmland, take a seat on the bench and watch the ducks and geese.

The cottage garden has a lawned area which is great for children and dogs plus a large flagged patio area. Light up a BBQ and dine alfresco on the outdoor furniture whilst admiring the views. There is ample off-street parking provided.

Delightful cottage in a beautiful location. Surrounded by stunning walks. A great location to base yourself in, walking distance (1.2 miles) into Great Ayton, a little on narrow roads. Thoroughly recommended, and the owners are lovely.

One of the best dog friendly cottages we have been to. It is on a working farm, up a hill, so a little muddy after all the rain, but with lovely views and a good enclosed space for the dogs out the back. Perfect for walkers.
