Property code: 91245

A charming, single-level, detached cottage nestled on the edge of a leading fishing complex in the sleepy little rural village of Sessay, 6 miles from Thirsk, this property sits in a perfect touring location for discovering North Yorkshire. With the gateway to the North York Moors National Park to the east and Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west, there are plenty of things to see and do within easy reach. Nearby Thirsk (6 miles) boasts a quaint marketplace, splendid Georgian buildings, a Norman church and excellent pubs, shops, restaurants, a cinema and a leisure centre. The cathedral city of York (21 miles) is within easy driving distance, making Sessay a lovely little rural escape to return to after a busy day of exploring. A lovely drive up Sutton Bank takes you to Rievaulx Abbey (15 miles) or continue on to the pretty town of Helmsley (16 miles), whilst a little further will bring you to the dramatic Yorkshire coastline.

Upon arrival, you will find off-road parking and a generous rear patio garden and a well-kept front garden. Unload your car and head inside from the rear into a handy vestibule where you can leave muddy boots and coats, great for when you return from a walk. Venture in the generously sized kitchen/diner, perfectly light and airy, where you can rustle up and enjoy long, leisurely meals over a bottle of wine with your company. The kitchen is well equipped to create large family feasts, so gather round the table and plan your holiday itinerary or get a board game out for a game night. After dinner, meander through to the delightful south-facing lounge, which catches the sunlight all day long. Sit back and relax on the deep sofas, warmed by the heat of the wood burner and watch a family favourite on the Smart TV. After a day of exploring, enjoy a soak in the bath or freshen up in the walk-in shower, before retiring to one of three beautifully decorated bedrooms: two super-king-sized (one being zip-and-link which can be made into a twin bedroom upon request) and a twin room (which can be made into a super-king upon request). Completing the accommodation is a convenient separate cloakroom.

Outside the property is a rear garden, the perfect place for relaxing in the sunshine with a morning coffee before heading off for the day. The Oaks Lakes have 10 lakes with over 400 pegs, a large cafe, and a tackle shop.

We had a really good week at Woodend. Very spacious accommodation, and the utility and porch area were great for sorting out our 3 dogs when returning from walks. The back gate in the fence was useful for access to the fishing ponds. Would be happy to book a return visit
