Overview

About the property

Three bedroom cottage in pretty village of Ebberston close to Moors and Coast

Located in the 4 acre grounds of Cliff House, the owners grade ll listed 18th century manor house, Holly Cottage is one of five cosy, 4 star Visit Britain graded, stone and pantile cottages. All our cottages ( Holly Cottage sleeps 6, Beech Cottage sleeps 5, Lilac Cottage sleeps 4, Pear Cottage sleeps 2 and Apple Cottage sleeps 2) are clustered around the secluded gravelled courtyard and are all designed for privacy and comfort. The pretty Victorian walled garden provides an ideal place to relax after spending the day exploring the delights of one of the most beautiful locations in Yorkshire. Our orchard leads to an avenue of Italian cypress trees and lavender which in turn leads to our impressive orangery - perfect for relaxing whatever the weather.

Holly Cottage has a large double aspect sitting room (with views over the gardens and grounds) with a roaring open fire, perfect for those chillier evenings, a large flatscreen TV with freeview, DVD and large comfy leather sofas. A spacious kitchen/dining room leads off the sitting room with a farmhouse style dining table and six chairs. The kitchen is fully-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster and cafetiere. A downstairs cloakroom and WC complete the ground floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, one double and two twin and the family bathroom with bath and electric shower over. Holly Cottage is equipped with a cot, highchair, stairgates and fireguard and lots of children's toys and books. Full gas central heating and off-road parking for 2 cars (further free parking available in the village) directly outside the cottage within the gravelled courtyard. Four acres of gardens with children's play area and tree-house provide the perfect place to let off steam.

Perfect for the North York Moors National Park, market towns of Helmsley and Pickering and within easy reach of the rugged coastline and sandy beaches of Whitby and Scarborough. Flamingo Land theme park and Eden Camp wartime museum are 20 minutes away. The historic city of York is 30 minutes away by car.

About Jo Hardie

Ian and I moved to Cliff House in the pretty village of Ebberston in 2008 from another small village 10 minutes away, with our three children. Ian, a baker and myself, pastry chef, run Cliff House Country Cottages and consider ourselves very lucky to be able to live in such a beautiful part of Yorkshire. When we are not busy preparing the cottages etc. we spend most of our free time in the 4 acre grounds and gardens at Cliff House, so are always available for a chat or to offer advice on places to visit or recommend somewhere to eat.

Jo Hardie purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Jo Hardie chose North Yorkshire

We love this area and could not imagine living anywhere else. We had been looking for a holiday cottage complex for several years, as we were determined that we must be in the ideal location for our guests to be able to visit all the local area has to offer - the coast (Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Ravenscar), the moors (Flamingoland, North York Moors Railway, Eden Camp) Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall, Dalby Forest and the ancient city of York, all within a 30 minute drive. The location of Cliff House, sitting on the edge of the village of Ebberston, means that we are secluded and peaceful (many guests comment that it is almost like being in a hamlet) yet easily accessible to local facilities, being a two minute walk to a traditional pub and a bus route into Scarborough. We take all major Debit/Credit cards (no charge). To book direct with us (no service fees) please search for Holly Cottage, Ebberston.

What makes this cottage unique

Located 100 yards down a quiet country lane, with private off road parking for each cottage within our secluded, gravelled courtyard, Cliff House Country Cottages, with 4 acres of grounds, is the perfect place to recharge your batteries. After an exhilarating day exploring the delights of one of the most beautiful locations in Yorkshire, relax and enjoy the excellent facilities at Cliff House - the indoor heated swimming pool and the games room. As we live in Cliff House itself, we offer guests a personal welcome and complimentary Yorkshire tea, coffee, sugar and a Yorkshire treat!

Beautiful Yorkshire

  • 4 of 5

We hired Hollie Cottage for the week, and I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful sleepy village, the cottage, victorian walled gardens and the pool. We have 3 children and they thoroughly enjoyed our time at Hollie Cottage to the point of being upset on leaving. We would definitely return, owners are lovely and so were the freshly baked muffins waiting in the kitchen! In addition to this the tree house and the games room were great too. Thank you to Ian and Jo x
