Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
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 Loft 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 read a book or enjoy a glass of wine 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 an open fire, full gas central heating and off-road parking for 1 car (further free parking available in the village) directly outside the cottage within the gravelled courtyard. 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 the Owner

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 Sam, Eleanor and George and Billy, our miniature dachshund! Ian, a baker and myself, a confectioner, 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 pottering 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.

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

Location

From the Owner

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, village bakery and a bus route into Scarborough.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Leeds/Bradford at 60 Miles Nearest Barpub : The Grapes, Ebberston at 200 Metres Nearest Ferry : Hull at 50 Miles Nearest Golf : Snainton at 1 Miles Nearest Train : Malton at 13 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The Coachman, Snainton at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Scarborough at 11 Miles Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The sandy beaches at Scarborough are a 20 minute drive away. The rugged coastline of Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay are 30 minutes away by car. Flamingo Land theme park and zoo, North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Eden Camp wartime museum all within 15 minute drive.

Travel:

Cliff House is a one minute walk to a regular bus route (hourly) into Scarborough or Pickering/Helmsley but a car is advisable. How to find us - Cliff House Country Cottages are situated in the village of Ebberston, just off the A170 between Pickering and Scarborough. From Pickering enter the village of Ebberston and pass the Grapes pub on your right. At the mini crossroads turn left. Cliff House is immediately on your right.

Distances:

Nearest shops are in Snainton (1mile) and Pickering (7 miles).

Nearest pub is in the village, 50 metres from the cottages.

Further Details:

There is an abundance of pubs, cafes and restaurants in the immediate area serving excellent food and a list of recommended places to eat is available in every cottage. Tesco and Asda both deliver to our cottages and many of our guests now order a supermarket delivery to coincide with their arrival day. This makes a stress-free start to your holiday and if it happens to arrive before you do we will even pack it away for you too! You can also have newspapers delivered to your cottage door from the Newsagent in the next village just in time for breakfast.
