About David Strachan

David & Berni Strachan bought Greengate in 2003 having been holidaying in the area for many years. When the opportunity to buy Greengate arose, it was too good an opportunity to miss. We spent 6 months renovating the property and bringing it into the 21st century.

We spend as much time as we can with our young family and friends, never tiring of the cottage and area. There is so much to do within a short drive and we enjoy spending days messing about in the beck running through the village and eating in the Crown Inn where we enjoy watching the world go by in the summer early evenings.

What makes this cottage unique

Greengate is ideally located for venturing onto the moors, whether on foot, cycle or car, visiting the local market towns of Pickering, Helmsley and Thirsk , visiting the coast or York with so much to offer.

At the end of the day we look forward to keeping warm in front of the open fire after a visit to one of the excellent local restaurants.

Cosy cottage in a most picturesque village.Ideal situation for touring the area.

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a family holiday in this beautiful area of North Yorkshire, Three generations have all enjoyed the facilities and comfort of the cottage with lots and lots to see and do locally. We have had some lovely walks and lots of fun in the cottage playing games. The Grandchildren loved the roaming sheep and village ice creams, owl spotting and general quietness of not being in a big town. The cottage had everything we needed. Stairs might be a bit steep and narrow for anyone with a disability.
