Holly CottageThirley Cotes Farm, Yorkshire
Holly is part of a collection of Grade II listed Thirley Cotes Farm cottages on the edge of the North York Moors, located near the village of Harwood Dale and only a short distance from Scarborough on the North Yorkshire coast.
Beginning its life as a grain store, Holly Cottage now provides stunning self-catering accommodation for couples or a small family, as the property sleeps 2. Finished to an exceptional standard, Holly Cottage offers open plan living space and traditional features, including vaulted beam ceilings. The private hot tub and enclosed terrace is the perfect place to relax and re-charge your batteries. On site, there is also an outdoor play area perfect for young children, a dedicated picnic area and indoor games room. There’s also 4-acres of private woodland to explore, complete with a babbling stream and large fenced wildlife pond in the adjacent grounds, for time spent spotting frogs, fish and other wildlife.
Holly welcomes one large or two small dogs (due to the layout of this property, no exceptions can be made). The Cottage Escapes office is based at the farm, so our staff are always on hand to welcome you and provide help or guidance during your stay.

We have had a fabulous week staying in Holly Cottage and visiting the local area. The cottage decoration is lovely and co-ordinated in tasteful colours.
