Formerly a working livestock barn, Oak Cottage is now a beautifully appointed self-catering cottage being part of a larger barn conversion at Thirley Cotes farm on the edge of the North York Moors.
The property is situated near the village of Harwood Dale only a short distance from the Yorkshire Coast between Whitby and Scarborough. The setting is very tranquil and ideal for also exploring the many beautiful villages of the North York Moors, you can easily walk and cycle straight from our door into the fabulous nearby forests and Yorkshire countryside.
Oak Cottage provides luxurious self catering accommodation for four people plus an infant and can accommodate six people using the sofa bed in the lounge area.
With an upside-down setup, you’ll find all of the bedrooms on the ground floor of the property with the spacious and airy living space above. Open plan lounge, kitchen and diner provide a comfortable base for your group during your break. Beautiful wooden floors are laid throughout the property and Air Source underfloor heating ensures your comfort during the chillier times. A private hot tub and enclosed terraced along with outdoor furniture and BBQ are just perfect for sitting out and relaxing with a glass of wine. Guests at Oak Cottage also get access to the fantastic shared amenities at Thirley Cotes Farm to include a children’s play area and indoor games room. There is plenty of great cycling from the door and you can explore the four-acre woodland throughout your stay too.

To celebrate my wife's big 70th birthday, we took the Farmhouse, Sycamore and Oak Cottages which perfectly housed our family of 10 and 12 close friends. Ages ranged between 78 and 4 months! We have had a wonderful weekend, in this splendid location. We cannot speak highly enough of the quality of all the accommodation, and everyone was very impressed with these marvellous facilities and most took advantage of the hot tubs - very relaxing!
The reception staff are very friendly and helpful and we could not have chosen a better location. We even had beautiful weather. Absolutely fabulous!
Many congratulations to the owners and staff, they couldn't have provided anything more, for their guests
