Appledore Cottage is a lovely end of terrace cottage with a large garden, plenty of parking and glorious views over the surrounding hills. The cottage is very comfortable, well maintained and very well equipped (including, despite its rural location free high speed Wi-Fi internet). Appledore is light and airy by day and cosy in the evenings. There is a large, slate floored, kitchen living room with sofas, free-sat television and a wood burning stove at one end with fitted oak units at the other and a circular dining table, dishwasher, oven, fridge and freezer and washing machine. Also on the ground floor is a very cosy sitting room with open fire, a downstairs twin bedroom and a shower room with a good powerful shower. The downstairs has underfloor heating. There is easy access to the large garden and a lovely sheltered patio for al fresco dining. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and one twin bedded room. All the beds are of a very high quality and the bathroom has a lovely large bath. The cottage has fast free internet Wi-Fi.
Appledore Cottage is set in the small hamlet of Thorgill. It is at the end of a no through road which makes it very peaceful but not isolated. The cottage has lovely views of the surrounding hills and countryside and has a large garden with plenty of space for sitting out or playing. There are wonderful walks from the house of varying distance and challenge and relaxing in the garden on a summer's day is an absolute joy with the babbling stream to be heard over the adjacent field. There are maps in the cottage which you are welcome to use and we provide plenty of local tourist information. Rosedale is a wonderful valley in which to walk and for those who want to walk further Farndale, Hutton le Hole and Lastingham and all within reach on foot.
The nearby village of Rosedale Abbey has two pubs, which both serve meals, and two small shops both with tea rooms. Both shops have basic provisions and one sells newspapers and has internet access. There is a lovely walk from the cottage to the village. There is also a small golf course at the end of the lane and there is horse riding available locally. There is good shopping at the local market towns of Kirkbymoorside and Pickering which both have a weekly market. There is a swimming pool and leisure centres at Pickering. One of the leisure centres has tennis courts. There are plenty of good food serving pubs and restaurants nearby. Whitby, Scarborough and the North Yorkshire coast are within easy reach as are York, Castle Howard, Flamingoland theme park and zoo, the North York Moors Steam Railway, Goathland and Heartbeat country and the Danby Moors Centre. The Yorkshire Moors National Park is full of lovely villages with great pubs, fantastic walks, wonderful streams and a host of idyllic spots to relax and unwind.
