Ideal for families, mountain bikers or as a base for your outdoor activities or quiet getaway in the famously picturesque Yorkshire village of Thornton-le-dale.
The Coach House is a beautifully light and spacious stone cottage with stunning period features and all modern facilities. Set in the quiet Prospect Place cul-de-sac with your own off-street parking space. Recently re-furnished, the large rooms benefit from modern furniture that provides a contemporary yet homely environment. Family friendly the house is also ideal for couples or larger groups. Included is all bedding and towels for 2 double bedrooms and a twin room, as well as a large double sofa bed in the living room, with bedding available (just ask). The Master bedroom has a king sized bed, and both that and the second double bedroom have incredibly comfortable memory foam mattresses and all bedrooms have black-out curtains as your holiday sleep is very important. There is a spacious main family bathroom with power shower, plus the master bedroom benefits from an en-suite toilet, and there is even a down-stairs toilet in the utility room. A travel cot is available with bedding and a high chair just let us know if you'd like the cot setting up for your arrival. Make your stay relaxing rather than a chore with all the modern facilities including dish-washer, wifi, large screen TV, google chrome-cast, bluetooth speaker, radio/CD/bluetooth in kitchen, washing machine, tumble-dryer and even a high spec BBQ with outdoor dining furniture.
With Dalby Forest just up the road the Coach House is ideal as your base for outdoor activities whether that be strolling through the village and picturesque lanes, hiking on the moors or in the forest, heading to the sea-side (just 30 minutes drive), family cycling on the quiet bridleways up-to and around Dalby forest or serious mountain biking on the famous purpose-built Dalby forest MTB Trails. Bridleways and footpaths lead from just over the road straight into the heart of Dalby Forest without having to use the main roads (just head for Ellerburn and then follow signs for the campsite). There is also plenty of bike storage and a hose to wash your bikes.
The Beck (stream) as shown in the images is just 1/4 mile from the cottage and is lined by some of the most pristine thatched cottages and gardens in Yorkshire. Myself and our children have spent many summer hours paddling and playing in the water and relaxing in the sunshine. There is even a duck pond in the village to feed the ducks.
