The bustling seaside resort of Scarborough (7.5 miles) lies to the south with its wonderful beaches and fantastic range of shops, pubs and amusements for all the family. The historic coastal town of Whitby (15 miles) is to the north, and is known for its lovely beach and famous abbey. Heading inland you can discover the wild beauty of the North York Moors.

This property has a truly idyllic location. Within a mile’s walk from the sea yet hidden away from the world, you will have a real sense of escape. The wildlife is incredible with owls, badgers and even wild deer spotted from the comfort of your patio. The old railway line which ran from Scarborough to Whitby is now a stunning cycle and walking route and passes near the cottage. It's the perfect choice if you feel like a coastal walk taking in some spectacular scenery and it’s just one of many beautiful walks from your doorstep.

There's a cosy 18th-century inn on the way down to the sea, a nice option for lunch and a glass of wine or two in the evenings. The excellent Ravenscar Hotel is also within walking distance of the property. A little further on, you’ll come to the coast where you will find empty rocky beaches and hidden waterfalls.

Positioned just 8 miles outside Scarborough, its position means you are perfectly placed to take in the best of the North York Moors, Yorkshire Coast and York.

Sitting at the eastern foot of the North York Moors, the region's dramatic landscape of heather and open moorland is just a short drive away. Somewhat smaller than the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors still cover an area of almost 600 square miles and like the dales you can easily find yourself miles from anywhere relatively quickly. But there is something distinctly more civilised and less remote about the moors. In place of harsh limestone and dramatic peaks, you'll find gently rolling hills of heather, ancient woodland and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. There is a sense of wilderness, particularly on top of the high central moorlands, but it’s cast in comforting soft focus.

We recommend taking the road from Thornton-Le-Dale or Pickering (both 25 miles) north towards Whitby (15 miles) to experience it in all its grandeur. There are countless pretty villages and towns to explore in the area.

The property is also very close to the coast. Much like its Cornish counterpart, the North Yorkshire coastline is 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 and 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.

This region is best known for the gorgeously gothic town of Whitby (15 miles). Playing host at one time to Romans, Saxons, Celts and Danes amongst others, the town's rich heritage is immediately obvious. Straddling the river Esk and dominated by the 13th-century ruins of St Hilda's Abbey on the East Cliff, Whitby's crooked cobbled streets and picturesque harbour have been a magnet for artists and tourists alike for centuries.

Although you could happily spend the weekend mooching about the independent shops, bars and cafes along Whitby's bustling medieval streets, it's well worth striking out to sample some of the other less known coastal villages nearby. Robin Hood's Bay and Sandsend can be reached within 15 miles and Staithes and Runswick Bay are slightly further at 25 miles.

Gorgeous cottage tucked away in a quiet spot where all you can hear is the wind in the trees and the babbling brook. Perfect place to de stress and unwind.

Surrounding area is stunning, just a short 10-15 min drive to robin hoods bay and then Whitby.

Absolutely stunning cottage, beautiful inside and out and such a wonderfully quiet and peaceful location. Local amenities were OK - a few local pubs with generally OK pub food but not better than that. If you want a guarantee of quiet in a lovely location then this is perfect but be prepared to drive if you are seeking quality eating places.
