Head to the beautiful North Yorkshire coastline for a romantic retreat, cosy and contemporary interior for a relaxing getaway for two.

Castleton, set in the heart of the Esk Valley, with shop, tearoom and pubs is less than a mile from this Grade II listed bothy. Why not take the train along the scenic railway line to Whitby (17 miles) and spend a day exploring the alleyways and cobbled streets which offer an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Slightly further afield is the bustling market town of Pickering (21 miles) with its historic castle, Dalby Forest (27 miles) with miles of cycle tracks to enjoy and the beautiful Castle Howard (20 miles). Other pretty market towns worth a visit include Helmsley (21 miles) and Malton which both have a variety of shops and local produce, Malton (25 miles) is fondly known as Yorkshire’s food capital and has regular food fayres. Not forgetting the nearby beaches for you to enjoy.

Head down the path to this cosy little bolthole for two. Step inside, the property has been transformed into a quirky and stylish space that’s perfect for romantic getaways. Prepare meals in the contemporary kitchen area equipped with everything you need to rustle up a delicious dinner including an electric hob/oven, fridge and microwave. There is a neat table for two or take your meal outside and dine alfresco with the views of the rolling countryside. After dinner, snuggle up on the sofa and watch a movie on the Smart TV or take a walk in the impressive surrounding moorland. This is a welcoming space for both summer and winter retreats with high ceiling and traditional Yorkshire stoned flooring. The wet room is finished beautifully with a shower and WC which is warmed with under-floor heating. When night calls, climb the ladder to the elevated hand-crafted oak bed and get a good night’s rest.

Step outside to the terrace, which offers a private space to enjoy a drink or meal at the table whilst enjoying the delightful views and listening to the sounds of the countryside wildlife. There is private off-road parking for one car and nextdoor the sister property to the Bothy, Blakey View Cottage, which also sleeps 2.

The location was beautiful. As I ate my breakfast outside I had sensational views up to Blakey and along the Rosedale Valley. Such a suntrap, all day. There was plenty of space to lounge around on the grass after returning from a large selection of local walks to viewpoints and surrounding villages and hamlets. Pretty lights twinkled around the garRead moreden, as dusk dew in. The hosts were every courteous and friendly. The Bothy accommodated my needs - good cooking facilities. Great mezz bed. Hide

Joe, the owner is lovely, friendly but not in your face! The Bothy is quirky and of a high quality, also lots of room outside too for the dogs. In a beautiful area. The bed is very comfortable but a bit of a challenge to get off it!

The bothy is cleverly designed and a great base for one or two people. The outside space is also excellent and a great area to have breakfast or just sit and enjoy the beautiful views, birdsong, and other wildlife. Castleton has all necessary facilities within a few minutes of the bothy, and it's less than a ten minute walk to the railway station, Read moreso it's easy to travel to Whitby and Middlesbrough. It's great for walking and cycling too, but be prepared for hills. Hide
