The Arches
Sleeps 6

The Arches

With sloped ceilings, namesake arched windows and a picturesque stone exterior, The Arches is an aesthetically pleasing home from home from which you can enjoy the rude, unadulterated scenes of the countryside.

Inside, the property boasts a spacious living area, open plan in design with exposed wooden beams for a touch of character. The room is furnished with chic velveteen sofas in a cool brown, matching the teal walls, a flat-screen TV, and a large, elegant dining table seating up to six. Through the stone archway is the farmhouse kitchen, with all electrical appliances, that perfectly captures the sun rays. Completing the ground floor is the first bedroom, in a twin layout, and the family bathroom with bath and shower facilities.

Upstairs are two further bedrooms, one king size that can be converted to a twin layout, and one double with a four-poster bed and TV, both boasting ample room and classy furnishing.

Outside, guests can journey into the surrounding Moors on one of the many available trails for walking and cycling, being just two miles from Low Mills. Away from the Moors are the towns of Kirkbymoorside, Helmsley and Hutton-le-Hole, or you can visit the coast for fresh Sea Air.

Booking the holiday with Sykes was very easy. The accommodation was great and the views even better than I had imagined. We were surrounded by green fields, sheep and ducks.

The location was amazing. The cottage was amazing too, stylish, cosy, lovely decor and kept immaculately. Fantastic farming family and the views were incredible! Probably would not have explored the Yorkshire Moors if hadn't stayed in such a rural location. Every turn was breathtaking and the local pubs were fantastic.

Mr Chapman

What a great place to stay. Beautifully presented with a stunning backdrop. The house is a good size, with plenty of room in the bedrooms and is well equipped. We wanted a peaceful setting and this was perfect. The adjoining property had guests, but we did not hear them at all. I cannot rate The Arches highly enough and hope to be back next year.

Mr. Mason


We found this remote cottage up Farndale to be equipped in every way for our needs. Our family consisted of grandparents, parents and two youngsters aged 11 and 8. Out and about we visited York, Scarborough and Whitby and particularly enjoyed the Folk Museum at nearby Hutton-le-Hole. The autumn colours were stunning. Our son-in-law was all over the steep lanes and tracks on his mountain back while the children enjoyed the farm. We even got a log fire going in the evening. Would recommend either of the spacious cottages on this site to anybody.


Gloriously scenic dale setting, great area to explore!

Booking and arrival at the cottage was easy and hassle free. The cottage was clean, tidy and well maintained. The warm, cosy atmosphere inside was very welcoming after a cool windy day out and about.
Despite being located a fair way up Farndale, the cottage was easy to get to from the moor top road. Many walks were had along the lane, up onto the moor tops and also in neighbouring Rosedale on the old railway line. The local pubs looked inviting, but we didn't get round to trying them out.

Winter wonderland

We had the perfect Christmas experience. Deep snow meant it was tricky getting down the valley to The Arches but, once there, it was an ideal location to enjoy the white-out scenery, sledging in front of the cottage and various walks, including a particularly rewarding trek up the valley side to the Lion inn on Blakey Moor. The Arches itself is a fine converted carthouse, well equipped and warm. The farming family who own it are very friendly and helpful.

Peter E

cosy cottage

despite the troubles with our car (5 days garage, shame on you r.a.c.) we still managed to make our holiday a success, thanks to the helpfull owner who didn't mind taking us to the store and even arranged us a visit to the country life museum. Thanks andy!!!

dirk verhoeven

One of the best locations in N Yorkshire

A lovely family welcome you to this very warm cottage. The view from the picture window of this quiet pretty dale would be hard to beat. There is a huge variety of places to go within reach by car and lots of wonderful walks, and a very friendly pub in the tiny village! You will be aware of all the changes in the weather!

A FlipKey verified reviewer


Our 6th visit and we love this place as much as ever!
Cannot fault the cottage and all it provides. If you want peace,beautiful views and a taste of the good life,then this is the place to be.
Andy,Julie and Lee are the delightful owners who welcome you into their world and let you become part of their working sheep farm.Always lots to see going on and very willing to explain countrylife to us townies!!
Just a short walk away is the local Feversham Arms run by the lovely Rachel and her husband,Richard. Warm,welcoming pub with great home cooked food,good beer and very dog friendly!
Also worth a visit is The Lion pub, just above the cottage at Blakey Ridge, especially at Christmas. You will not find a more beautifully decorated pub and cannot fail to feel festive when you explore all the rooms. Great atmosphere,fantastic food and loads of great beers to try!
Would recommend the Arches and the larger attached cottage,The Old Carthouse, to anyone who simply wants to get away from it all and enjoy a peaceful,relaxed time with family and friends and dogs - magical!!
We will be back!!



Absolutely fantastic, stopped here 2 years ago as well, fantastic views, location and value for money. Set on a working farm so sheep in field in front of our lounge window, I've loved watching the sheep and calves playing and running. What a wonderful place. Massive thanks. :-)

About the best you can get

I heve been here many times and I enjoyed all my stays. Probably everything written about this cottage is true.


Great, picturesque location in a rolling dale

Lovely 3 bedroom house next to a farm, within walking distance to a good pub (Feversham Arms). Open fire, fully equipped kitchen and a bottle of wine and teapot and biscuits waiting for us when we arrived! Firewood included. Liked the touch of leaving the torches for us!
