Brook Garth Ref: INO

Set in large private gardens with a babbling brook running the perimeter, this six bedroomed detached property has been refurbished to a very high standard and makes the perfect place for a family gathering or simply to celebrate a special occasion. Tucked away in the tiny little hamlet of Allerston, just outside the picturesque market town of Pickering, visitors can board the North York Moors steam train and sit back and relax, whilst it chugs its way across some of Yorkshire’s most stunning countryside, through the Esk Valley and into Goathland, better known as Aidensfield in the TV series Heartbeat.
A 15-minute drive leads to the popular seaside resort of Scarborough with restaurants, cinemas, theatres and of course its beautiful sandy beaches affording the perfect family day out. A little further afield lies the historic port of Whitby, famed for its connections with Captain James Cook, cobbled streets, ginnels and alleyways packed with curio, antique and specialist shops, which are all overlooked by the abbey ruins. With the walled city of York offering a more sophisticated day out just a 30-minute drive, and historic castles, abbeys and beautiful gardens all found closeby, this truly is the ideal location at any time of the year.

"Charming cottages situated in a scenic holiday location, which form an ideal base from which to explore the stunning scenery of the North Yorkshire Coast..."

Killerby Old Hall and its 7 cottages are ideal for a countryside holiday whilst being less than 2 miles from the beach of Cayton Bay. Guests can enjoy the nature reserve and lake area, or relax in the indoor heated swimming pool. The accommodation ranges from the Old Hall, sleeping 10 in period splendour, through to cosy Crow’s Nest which sleeps 2. Set in a pretty courtyard, each cottage is different yet has its own sitting-out area with patio furniture and BBQ.
Killerby Old Hall is situated between the coastal resorts of family friendly Filey, with its cobble landing and pretty promenade, and Scarborough, with its vibrant South Bay and naturally picturesque North Bay, located on part of Britain’s heritage coast. The Stephen Joseph Theatre, famed throughout the county, puts on a number of Alan Aykbourn productions. To the north, across the stunning North Yorkshire Moors, lies the port of Whitby; famous for its connections to Captain James Cook and Dracula. Robin Hood’s Bay, a former fishing village with a smugglers past, has quaint streets which lead visitors to a small, sandy cove and rock pools. Heading inland, find the historic market town of Pickering, where the famous North Yorkshire Moors steam train begins its journey. Access Dalby Forest through the attractive village of Thornton-le-Dale and be sure to stop for an ice cream. The forest offers a range of activities including mountain bike tracks, or for those feeling adventurous there is Go Ape. It is also a popular picnic destination which is surrounded by walks that the whole family can enjoy. Travel a little further afield to Castle Howard with its stunning house and grounds. The ancient, Roman walled city of York sits just an hour up the A64, a famously haunted city with many attractions such as the railway museum, river trips and excellent shopping. To the south along the coast, the Cleveland Way leads to dramatic Flamborough Head and the Bempton RSPB Sanctuary. The village of Cayton is a 500 yard stroll, with its pub, post office and shop. Full amenities are just over 4 miles away in Scarborough. Shop and pub 500 yards.

Situated at one end of the pretty grassed courtyard, this converted barn is an ideal location for a large family gathering. Spacious living room with patio doors leading to a flagged patio area.
