Easter Cottage is a Grade II traditional Yorkshire stone cottage, situated in the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors Park in the village of Thornton le Dale. The village is one of the prettiest in Yorkshire with its stone cottages and village green, where in the summer months every Sunday a band or group perform. The stream meanders through the village and the village duck pond has lots of wildlife to see. The village has everything you need with a local butcher, bakers, shop and a couple of pubs all within a two minute walk from the cottage. Easter Cottage is 1½ miles from Dalby Forest where you have over 683 miles of cycle trails from gentle family routes to the serious down hilling for the adrenaline seekers amongst you. Dalby Forest hosts lots of other attractions such as Go Ape and special events for children, like the fungal forays and bug hunts as well as outdoor concerts in the summer, you can spend a few days in the forest with different activities each day and still not have covered the whole area. Just 3 miles inland you will find the town of Pickering, famous for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Here you can catch the steam train and ride through the fantastic North York Moors to Goathland (Heartbeat Country) and Whitby. Every year Pickering hosts the War weekend where the whole town becomes a huge set from the Second World War. Relive the amazing spirit and camaraderie of WW2. In less than an hour you have the medieval city of York with the fantastic Minster and city walls. York is also accessible by bus from the cottage. The east coast is 15 miles away, where you have the traditional seaside resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington, all with fantastic beaches for children. Don’t forget the RSPB cliffs at Bempton, where you will see the puffins in their natural habitat.
