Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time. The home was very comfortable and in the best location. The view from the kitchen table is so serene. If you have never been to Great Ayton before you are in for a treat. The village is at the end of the home's driveway. The people are so friendly and you are within walking distance of the co-op and the Royal Oak Inn. The food and pub make it a great place to eat.

Absolutely Charming!

  • 4 of 5

A cozy little cottage, centrally located to many of the northern England/Yorkshire sights. The seaside coast, the moors, farmers' markets and even the Lake District were all a doable drive from the cottage. With a lovely stream out the front door, and a meadow filled sheep and walking path across the stream, we also enjoyed staying in the Great Ayton village. Walked to pubs, a wonderful restaurant for special occasions, butcher shop, meat pies/pastry shop, fish & chips storefront, weekly fish truck, ice cream parlor .....we could have easily stayed another week. Although sparsely furnished, the cottage had all the amenities for a perfectly wonderful North Yorkshire stay.
