Located in the heart of this much loved village, this charming, character cottage is part of the original old forge dating back to the 14th century. Situated alongside the babbling stream which runs throughout the village, the property has many delightful features including beamed ceilings and exposed stonework. It is cosily furnished with a soothing interior which provides a wonderfully relaxing base from which to explore this historic region and the whole of the east coastline. A patio area both to the front and side of the property which overlooks the stream offers a totally relaxing place from which to watch the world go by or enjoy a relaxing glass of wine or two! The village is perhaps one of the prettiest in Yorkshire with a variety of tea-rooms, excellent pubs serving good food, craft and gift shops, ice cream parlours and a small chocolate factory renowned for its handmade chocolates. Everyday supplies can be obtained in the village as there is a small grocery store, post office, newsagents, baker and hairdresser.
