Overview

3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
North Yorkshire, England
Situated in the heart of rural North Yorkshire, Argil Cottage is a luxury home from home for up to four people. We're in the middle of a quiet village on the stunning Vale of Pickering, within easy reach of the best that North Yorkshire has to offer. The spectacular North York Moors, the Yorkshire Heritage Coast and the outstanding area of natural beauty on the Hambleton Hills are on our doorstep. It's also a great base from which to explore York, Scarborough and Whitby.

At Argil Cottage, we've kept the period features of a traditional detatched village cottage, but equipped it with everything you need to get the best out of your stay. I find the cottage works particularly well for families, with two double and one single bedroom, there's a lot of flexibility. There's also a family bathroom, downstairs WC, fully-equip...

Interaction with guests
I don't live in the same village as the cottage so I definitely won't be around lots. But I do try to pop in during the week and see how you are getting on and if I can, I'll be there to hand over your keys or see you when you leave. Basically, you've got the place to yourself, but I'd always like to say hello at some point.

Everything about this cottage is perfect. Kathy, the owner has thought of everything that will make your stay feel like home from home. The cottage is very tastefully decorated and is in a lovely little hamlet which is situated ideally for getting to the North Yorkshire coast or inland to the moors. Although we didn't get to meet the owner...

Suited us perfectly for a Christmas with the family who live a couple of villages away (5 mins by car) - love 'em BUT the joy of having our own escape place over the festive mad period was lovely! Close enough to all the best places on the edge of the moors and masses of brochures and recommendations for local...

We (a family of five) stayed a week at Argil Cottage and had a wonderful time. It’s really well located with a variety of activities nearby. We have young children and there was so much nearby to keep them entertained; however, this cottage would be equally well suited to groups with no children who want to go sightseeing, or explore...

About the neighbourhood
We're at the heart of a small, rural village on the Vale of Pickering. The peaceful detatched cottage backs onto farmland, with views across the vale to the moors. The village has a small country pub just a short walk away, and it is a picturesque drive to the attractions of this part of North Yorkshire.
Getting around
Ryedale is a properly rural area, which means that you'll probably want to have a car to see the best of it. There is a mainline station at Malton (which is closest) and then a bus to Great Barugh - although it doesn't run every day. If you were thinking about a car-free stay, bike would be the best bet (possibly with a taxi from the station with your luggage). If you're interested in coming on a cycling holiday or using your bikes as your main means of transport, drop me a line and I'll chat through some ideas. I'm a keen cyclist myself and take my bike to the cottage lots.
