The cottage is large and airy and would suit larger families or two families. It sits on the edge of a small village which was a former mining village. It is a 10 minute walk from the quiet beach and yet very close to many tourist attractions including the beautiful North Yorkshire moors. The area is suitable for walkers and the cottage sits on the Cleveland way and is within easy reach of many organised walks, woodlands and lovely coastline.

About june hume
My Name is June and I have lived and worked as a Nurse in and around the North Yorkshire coastline all of my life. I bought Kilton Mill House in 2003 which I totally fell in love with from the minute I entered.I brought up my 3 sons until they all one by one left home.My lovely cottage became too big for me to live in alone and very reluctantly I began to look for a smaller house to live. Whilst living in the house and convinced I would stay there forever, I totally renovated the whole cottage, although as the cottage is Grade 11 listed I had to work within the restrictions that imposed, but I feel that maintaining and restoring many original features has benefited the cottage. The garden has been my pride and joy and has even won me a couple of local prizes.

Why june hume chose Loftus
This is an area I have loved and lived in all of my life, the people are wonderful, warm and friendly. I love the position of the cottage, as it is very near to the lovely north yorkshire moors and also the north yorkshire coastline, and lovely towns such as Whitby, Saltburn,Staithes, and all the in between charming fishing villages with beautiful scenery. It is a great spot for walkers as it sits on the Cleveland way and has many other lovely walks very nearby. The Cottage itself is just a short walking distance to the small fishing village of Skinningrove & the sea which is only a 10 min walk. Saltburn is a 10 mins drive away & is the nearest train station giving access to many other places of interest. The North Yorkshire moors is also 10 mins drive and has breathtaking scenery.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage benefits from both its seclusion from the crowds or a busy city but also from its ease of access to all local amenities and short distance from many local attractions and lovely places to visit. The cottage is very unique in and is of local public interest as it dates back to the mid 18th century as a millers cottage and even gets a mention in the doomsday book! hence the reason for its grade 11 listing.It sits next door to one of the few remaining Water mill in England which although has recently been renovated into a dwelling it still retains all the original workings of the mill which sit behind large glass panels to preserve the old machinery. The cottage also has the added benefit of being quite large as Cottages built in the same era tended to be quite small and dark.

House full of character
Beautiful house, fully equipped.
Outstanding holiday cottage home from home
Fabulous 3 day break in this stunning cottage. Everything there from music to games. The barbecue was very handy as the weather was great and we could sit out in the gardens whilst the children played. Would thoroughly recommend it
Wow,wow and Wow
What an impressive cottage this is, with every need catered for.
Location is very good close to lots of lovely places to visit.
We had 7 adults and two little ones in our party and cottage is so spacious, we didn't feel on top of each other.
Lovely surprise with the grocery supplies when we arrived.

Lovely long weekend!
Lovely family long weekend. Would highly recommend this cottage. Ample space, great property.
Eldest of party was 70; youngest was 6 - it suited all of us.
Delightful journey along the coast to neighbouring towns and villages (Whitby and Staithes); terrific scenery.
Cottage quaint, comfortable, clean and homely. Gardens beautiful.
Owners made our stay more special as I had mentioned when booking that our weekend away was my sister's 40th birthday treat. We arrived to banners, balloons and a birthday cake! That was a lovely touch and greatly appreciated by us.
We will definitely be booking again!
