Stay in this characterful cottage, which is the former childhood home of Captain Cook! With picturesque views and plenty of walks from the doorstep. Perfect for family and friends seeking adventure in and around the North Yorkshire Moors.

Take in the magnificent views out across the Cleveland Hills when you stay at this enticing cottage that was once home to celebrated British explorer Captain James Cook. Situated in glorious countryside within the North York Moors Country Park, 1.5 miles from Great Ayton, the three-bedroom hideaway sleeps six guests and welcomes four-legged friends. With a pretty, English cottage garden for summer days and a wood burner for autumn and winter nights, it is perfect for families and groups of friends eager to explore both the Yorkshire countryside and coast.

Tear yourselves away from the views of Roseberry Topping and leave your shoes and coats as you pass through the dining room. Pause for a spell to light the wood burner in the lounge and find a good film on the Smart TV to settle down to later. The kitchen/diner, which features an exposed stone wall, is a great place to whip up tasty Yorkshire meals for your party before pausing at the table for a warming cup of coffee. One of your bedrooms, a double, with an en-suite wet room, is downstairs, while a king-size bedroom, a twin and the family bathroom are all on the floor above. Spill out into the garden to play games with the children and pets in the sunshine. Light the BBQ and grill your fresh Yorkshire produce. Sit outside under the stars long into summer nights.

Venture straight out from the cottage to follow scenic footpaths through the North York Moors. Pack a few sandwiches and stride off on a 2-mile walk to the Captain Cook Monument. Venture 12 miles to the coast at Saltburn-by-the-Sea to spend time on the long and sandy beach, which is popular with walkers and surfers. Plan a day trip to Whitby, 28 miles away, to see the abbey ruins.

Delightful cottage in a beautiful location. Surrounded by stunning walks. A great location to base yourself in, walking distance (1.2 miles) into Great Ayton, a little on narrow roads. Thoroughly recommended, and the owners are lovely.

One of the best dog friendly cottages we have been to. It is on a working farm, up a hill, so a little muddy after all the rain, but with lovely views and a good enclosed space for the dogs out the back. Perfect for walkers.
