This lovely cottage takes its name from the Woodpecker who visits almost daily, just one of many types of bird which live in the garden and surrounding woodland. Within the North York Moors National Park and on the edge of the popular moorland village of Hutton-le-Hole, this is a fantastic location for walkers, cyclists and wildlife enthusiasts. Footpaths and bridleways link the property to the nearby villages of Appleton-le-Moors and Gillamoor and the market town of Kirkbymoorside, and the owners (who live next door) provide maps and are happy to advise on the best routes and places to visit. The Yorkshire Coast, York and the Yorkshire Wolds are within easy reach for a day out.
The cottage is a converted barn and retains a great deal of its old character and charm with exposed beams and feature stonework. Visitors are sure to appreciate the tasteful decoration and comfortable furnishings in this well-equipped property. There is a private garden with a table and chairs for dining outside, overlooking the wooded valley, providing exceptional peace and quiet for a relaxing holiday.

A stay in the quaint village of Hutton-le-Hole is like stepping back in time, the village is full of character and charm, with the freely grazing sheep and trickling beck providing a sense of peace and tranquility. It’s the perfect base for exploring the stunning North York Moors National Park and you can discover the history of the area at the Ryedale Folk Museum located in the village, a fascinating museum into rural life in the moors with realistic reconstructions of period buildings. Nearby you’ll find the market towns of Pickering and Kirkbymoorside where you’ll find a great range of local and national retailers as well as thriving markets to enjoy.
