Walnut CottageThirley Cotes Farm, Yorkshire


We are busy working on Walnut Cottage and do not have any images at the moment, we thought you wouldn’t wish to see pictures of our builders ! Rest assured the cottage will be superb in every aspect and we hope to get images onto the website towards the end of November  2019.

Walnut Cottage is a beautiful , two bedroomed property set in the stunning grounds of Grade 2 listed Thirley Cotes Farm, in the tranquil location of Harwood Dale near Scarborough. Formerly used for housing working livestock and dating back to the 1830’s, this property has now been lovingly converted into a high class, modern cottage ideal for couples, families and dog owners. Great attention to detail has been provided in every room to give all guests a truly memorable experience. The property is all on one level and has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, open plan dining/living/kitchen leading to the private patio and enclosed landscaped garden with furniture and private hot tub. You can enjoy our four acre woodland or do some wildlife watching as we have our own resident Barn Owl . We have a children’s play area and games room on site perfect for keeping little ones amused. The whole area is a haven for ramblers and cyclists with numerous pathways and tracks located nearby. We are very dog friendly and look forward to welcoming your pet as we have our own resident Labradors Mia and Murphy. The Cottage escapes office is onsite so there’s always a friendly member of staff to assist you during your stay if needed.
