Fox and Rabbit Holiday Cottages

Amidst the stunning heather-clad scenery of the North York Moors National Park, this group of three cosy cottages is set in a paved courtyard, with seating and colourful planting. Recently updated, the cottages are all very comfortably furnished and presented to a very high standard.

Conveniently close to the Fox and Rabbit pub with restaurant, in superb walking country, the cottages offer an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful North York Moors National Park and Dalby Forest. Just 4 miles away from Pickering with good shopping, restaurants and takeaways, leisure centre and swimming pool, and the famous North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway. Goathland, renowned as Heartbeat’s ’Aidensfield’, is just 7 miles away, and Flamingo Land Theme Park and Eden Camp, a Second World War museum, are both within 10 miles. Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall are within 15 miles as is the coast at Whitby.

Cycle hire, riding and fishing are available locally.

“Wow” Lovely week Gill, you thought of every thing. Wonderful, we will be back. Roy and June, Suffolk

Loved the new decor. Had a great week as always. Very comfortable in the cottage. Di & Alf, Newport Pagnall

From booking to arrival and departure, Adrian has been the most welcoming host. He even kindly offered to make sandwiches for my arrival as he knew I had a long journey ahead of me. Adrian definitely goes out of his way to make his guests feel more than guests, with the lovely welcoming chat upon arrival - not your usual meet and greet - and is more than happy to take time and talk, making you feel very much at home. Everything in the cottage is impeccable and, given the present Covid-19 situation, cleanliness is obviously top priority with sanitising stations in place to keep guests safe. The cottage is very cosy, beautifully furnished and the bed is SO comfortable - I enjoyed the most relaxing night’s sleep. Come and stay when visiting the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside - you won’t be disappointed here. The only thing that disappointed me was that I didn’t catch a glimpse of Tom Cruise who was filming Mission Impossible 7 nearby! Thank you again, Adrian, for a most relaxing stay - I can’t wait to return.

They say that travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer...... If that is the case our visit to North Yorkshire greatly enhanced our lives. It’s a beautiful part of the world with spectacular scenery, chocolate box villages, and friendly people that go out of their way to make you welcome. One such person was Adrian, who owns Sleepy Fox Cottage, where we stayed for a couple of nights on our North Yorkshire tour. The cottage is one of three in a courtyard setting, situated between Pickering and Whitby. On the doorstep is the picturesque village of Thornton-le-Dale and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Adrian lives on the premises and is in the process of improving his three fabulous cottages come apartments. Ours was modern, spacious and light, with top quality bed linen, a comfortable mattress and fluffy towels. All much appreciated after a day spent sightseeing. There’s outside seating where you can watch the world go by, a pub next door, and plenty of space to park your car. On the night we were leaving, Adrian and the occupants of the two other cottages were having a barbeque round a fire pit. Yorkshire hospitality at its best . You just can’t beat it. See you soon Adrian .

Absolutely loved our little getaway! We even extended it for another night. Owners were really friendly and made us feel very welcome! Very clean & cosy cottage with modern touches. Fresh bread & milk provided lovely extra touch. Plenty to do if you want to, we went on some lovely walks & Dalby forest is just around the corner which was fab. We will definitely be back soon!! Thanks Adrian xx
