Overview

About the property

Double bed holiday cottage with open plan living room with beautiful views

Postgate Nook is a one bedroomed holiday cottage within the beautiful, peaceful setting of Postgate Farm, set up by the owners to provide a luxurious, peaceful setting for a romantic break for couples. The Nook is full of character, featuring exposed beams, stonework and wood burning stove. Downstairs, the Nook has an open plan living room, kitchen and dining area with ample facilities for 2 persons. Upstairs there is a double bed, en-suite toilet and luxurious free standing bath area. Ample off-road parking is provided, and outside is a private sitting area with stunning views over Glaisdale Dale.

Note Postgate Nook may also be suitable for parents with one young infant (plenty of space to set up a travel cot either upstairs or downstairs).

NEW!! For Winter / Spring 2016/017 onwards. We have now added a wood burning stove (all fuel provided) for cosy nights in by the fire.

Postgate Farm is set in a beautiful, peaceful location in Glaisdale Dale with stunning views to the South over the Dale to the forests and moorlands beyond. The Dale itself is served by just one road which means very little traffic, yet is only a mile from the thriving village community of Glaisdale and all its amenities including the village pub, award winning butchers, post office and general store, tennis court and the Robinson Institute, home of the renowned Esk Valley Theatre Company. The village has a railway station and is served by local bus routes. Glaisdale is an ideal holiday location, with stunning walks and cycling available without even getting in your car. A little further afield are other parts of the North York Moors, with pretty villages such as Goathland, Grosmont, Egton, Lealholm, Rosedale Abbey and Egton Bridge just a few minutes drive or a healthy hike away, or by using the picturesque Esk Valley Railway, which runs from Whitby to Middlesborough, and also connects to the famous North York Moors Railway, complete with steam trains, connecting to Pickering. The local bus service connects to Whitby, and the other villages of the North York Moors.The towns of Pickering in the heart of the North York Moors, and Whitby on the coast are less then half an hours drive away and can also be accessed by rail as mentioned above. York and Scarborough lie approximately 50 minutes drive from Glaisdale. Whether you want to see the beauty of the North York Moors with its expansive moorlands and hidden valleys or the stunning Cleveland coastline, Glaisdale is an ideal base for your stay.

About Mark and Moya Hollingworth

Mark and Moya Hollingworth moved to the North York Moors from West Yorkshire with a view to semi-retirement in this beautiful area, having already successfully run holiday cottages in the area for many years. On purchasing Postgate Farm we started to convert some of the old farm buildings to provide luxury self catering accommodation on site. Living in the farm house next door means we can be on hand to help guests with their stay, but we aim to leave visitors to enjoy their own private space.

Mark and Moya Hollingworth purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Mark and Moya Hollingworth chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

We discovered the North York Moors while travelling to our former holiday cottage on the coast at Staithes. When the opportunity came along to move our family home we looked for a property in a rural area which would give us the opportunity to develop further holiday cottages which we could manage from our own home. We discovered Postgate Farm located in Glaisdale Dale just outside Glaisdale village. The Dale is a beautiful, peaceful setting around a mile from the village of Glaisdale, with a thriving community and various amenities such as village pub, award winning butchers, post office and general store, tennis court and the Robinson Institute, home of the renowned Esk Valley Theatre Company. The village has a railway station and is served by local bus routes. As well as now being our happy family home, we have now converted some of the former barns to provide luxury self-catering holiday accommodation.

What makes this cottage unique

Postgate Farm is set in a beautiful, peaceful location with stunning views to the South over Glaisdale Dale. The Dale itself is served by just one road which means very little traffic, yet is only a mile from the village of Glaisdale and all its amenities. Glaisdale is an ideal holiday location, with stunning walks and cycling avaiable without even getting in your car. A little further afield are other parts of the North York Moors, with pretty villages such as Goathland, Grosmont, Egton, Lealholm, Rosedale Abbey and Egton Bridge just a few minutes drive or a healthy hike away, or by using the picturesque Esk Valley Railway, which runs from Whitby to Middlesborough, and also connects to the famous North York Moors Railway, complete with steam trains, connecting to Pickering . The towns of Pickering in the heart of the North York Moors, and Whitby on the coast are less then half an hours drive away and can also be accessed by rail as mentioned above.

Beautiful property, ideal escape

  • 5 of 5

Have just spent lovely week at what qualifies without doubt as one of the best holiday cottages in Yorkshire. With views that are amazing and everything that you could want at your fingertips, and lot's of little extras thrown in like the essentials for when you arrive tea and milk, and bath bombs to luxuriant in the lovely bath at the end of the evening after touring the region as Glaisdale is centrally placed to visit so many places.

The cottage is clean and lovingly decorated with the character of the building shining through. Mark and Moya make you feel very welcome and I'm sure we will return again.

Absolutely wonderful.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little cottage, ideal for two. Stunning scenery from the main living area. Everything exceptionally clean and tidy. Kitchen/dining area well equipped with just about everything you need. Upstairs, the large double bed is extremely comfortable, with the bath shower unit in the room. The toilet and wash basin are in a separate little room off to the side, and all towels and linen supplied. One small criticism, which could be easily rectified, is the lack of 'vanity' space. A couple of corner shelves by the wash basin for soap, tooth brushes deodorant, etc. A shelf under the bedroom mirror for make up and one behind the bath would make this delightful cottage perfect. Mark and Moya made us feel most welcome, and I would recommend their cottage to any couple. Many thanks, John and Christine.

A Hidden Gem in The Moors

  • 5 of 5

After a long car journey, one could not wish for a more relaxing accommodation with stunning views over the Glaisdale Dale, as we chilled out on our private terrace drinking a well above average complimentary bottle of wine.

Mark and Moya have obviously given a lot of thought to ensure comfort and good taste with all

those nice touches that make all the difference.

Soaking in the free standing bath was a joy after many of our brilliant walks, where you are spoilt for choice.

We enjoyed our stay so much, as others will and can't wait to return.

Many thanks to you both
