Overview

About the property

Doodale Cottage is a spacious one bedroomed grade II listed converted stone barn. The cottage is located on a small working farm on the outskirts of Malton in the village of Old Malton. There are 2 pubs serving good Yorkshire food within walking distance.

With easy access to the A64, the cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the many different attractions of North Yorkshire including York, the coastal towns of Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay, the market towns of Malton, Pickering and Helmsley and the scenic North Yorkshire Moors.

The open plan cottage has WiFi and benefits from underfloor heating in addition to a wood burning stove.

The main door opens into a well equipped fitted kitchen with modern appliances including a full sized dishwasher, large fridge freezer and microwave. The kitchen and dining area are separated from the living area by a central wood burning stove. The comfortable living area has a leather sofa, two wing back chairs, TV and a selection of games, books and local maps.

The upstairs has a glass balcony, a king and single bed, to give flexibility in sleeping arrangements and a shower room. Towels, linen, a box of logs, gas and electricity are included in the rental costs.

Outside there is a small garden with table and bench seats and off road parking for up to 2 cars.

For people wishing to explore further, the farm track is a pleasant walk and usually our fold of 24 pedigree Highland Cattle can be seen. They vary in age from calves born in 2016 to mature 10 year old cows.

Doodale Cottage has been awarded 4 stars with a gold accolade as part of the VisitEngland National Quality Assessment Scheme.

Please send an enquiry for prices for 4, 5 and 6 night stays.

About Sally

We are Roger and Sally and spent 30 years of our working life in offices in the South of England. Between 2008 and 2013 we gradually transitioned from the South of England to a new life style in North Yorkshire.

Sally purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Sally chose North Yorkshire

In 2008 we were looking for our 'Grand Designs' project to keep us occupied once our 2 children left home. We looked at building plots, barns for conversion in Berkshire and Devon and even an old brewery tower in Somerset. Barr Farm was special due to the 100 acres of land, village location and endless possibilities for mini projects. Over the last 8 years we have extended and renovated the farmhouse, converted the attached barn into Doodale Cottage, introduced Highland Cattle to the farm and worked with a contractor to understand and improve the farmland.

Everything is quality with this cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Sally who gave us a summary of the cottage and also places to visit and eat in the area. Sally and Roger also gave us a walking tour of their beautiful farm and introduced us to their cattle.

The overall quality of the cottage and the attention to detail would be hard to beat and would be the best self catering cottage we have stayed in by far. Secure parking was outside the door, a couple of excellent local pubs within easy walking distance and the shops and market place in Malton just 5 minutes drive away. We found the area to be an excellent point to branch out in various directions to explore the North Yorkshire Moors and the various nearby villages. Also just a 40 minute drive to Whitby and coastal areas.

Fantastic holiday cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Sally was a friendly hostess who was there if needed. Cottage was superb. Clean, confortable and cosy. Private secure parking. Access to farm grounds provided enjoyable evening strolls. Rural location but convenient for touring North and East Yorkshire i.e. Scarborough and Whitby. Malton interesting old market town with curiosity shops in The Shambles. Good coffee shops. We visited the Nidderdale Show which was a great day out albeit a 100 mile round trip. The Wentworth Arms was friendly with good food and ale. We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years and this ranks with some of the best.

A very comfortable and definitely five start cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the standard of the cottage and all its equipment. Everything provided was of excellent quality, the bed was very comfortable and especially with its 600 thread count bedding.

Being able to arrive and be provided with tea/coffee making facilities including milk and a bottle of wine was a lovely touch, as was the home made sponge cake which was delicious.

There was certainly lots to visit in the area, and would thoroughly recommend Castle Howard and the Eden Camp, although allow a good 5 hours for the camp, we went back a second day and still did not finish it.

The farm which the cottage is situated on is immaculately kept with beautiful flowers surrounding the entrance.

Thank you Sally for a wonderful stay

Beautifully appointed holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a 4 night break at Doodale Cottage. It has been very well renovated with a stylish but comfortable interior with everything you could possible need to make it a home from home. Sally was very friendly (we didn't get to meet Roger) and welcomed us on arrival. The farm is great and we saw the highland cattle. Will definitely return and recommend to friends and family.
