Gable End is a traditional Yorkshire farm cottage, in a contemporary sort of way! Surrounded by the farm’s moor flock of Swaledale and Cheviot sheep, the property offers traditional and cosy features like comfy sofas, velvet cushions, a wood burner and exposed beams, along with extras such as broadband, USB plug sockets and a Smart Freesat TV. Owned by the Sherratt-Wordsworth family since the 1930s, the dwelling has been redesigned for its new life as a holiday cottage, removing a wall to make a light-filled, open and airy downstairs, and creating a new staircase for better access to the upper twin bedroom, with its skylight gazing up to the stars. The cottage has also been renovated from top to bottom with a blend of farmhouse and Georgian furniture and Victorian pictures. There are two lovely bedrooms – one with a kingsize bed, the other with either two 3 foot singles or a super kingsize bed – and a charming bathroom with both bath and shower. You will find Gable End a lovely, comfortable and cosy place to unwind and recharge your batteries.
Situated on the edge of the moors, it is also a fantastic place to walk or stroll from – two dogs are most welcome – or to go cycling in all the hills you could ask for! What’s more, being just a mile from Goathland and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, less than 10 miles from Whitby and Pickering, and just an hour from York, the cottage makes a perfect base to explore all the charms of this scenic and historic part of the country. And to that end, as well as the usual leaflets for local attractions, we have put together our own file with lesser known and lovely things to do and see in the area, so your stay here can be all the more special. Beach 9 miles. Shop ¾ mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
Gable End Cottage can be booked together with Tilly’s Cottage (ref 27184) to accommodate up to 10 guests.
