Nestled in the remote market town of Kirkbymoor side, North Yorkshire, on the edge of North York Moors National Park, Crooked Cottage offers a lovingly refurbished holiday home for couples escaping their busy lives.
This three-storey romantic cottage was built in the mid-1700s and retains much of its original character and charm with a quirky and interesting layout. The ground floor includes a spacious farmhouse-style kitchen with fireplace and lovely window seat, while the cosy sitting room, complete with open ceiling, exposed beams and open fire, looks out over a small courtyard garden from atop the home on the second floor.
The pet-friendly cottage for couples also comes with outside lockable cycle store for boots and bikes, perfect for outdoor enthusiasts wishing to explore the moorlands. Golfers, meanwhile, can play Kirkbymoor side Golf Club, one of Yorkshire’s top courses. Nearby Pickering is the base of the North York Moors Steam Railway, an outstanding day trip for two to enjoy.
