The attractive village of Great Ayton lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, at the foot of the Cleveland Hills. Great Ayton is famous for being the boyhood home of Captain Cook, and is also mentioned in the Domesday Book. The village consists of a mixture of pretty stone cottages and some new development housing. A good base for market towns, the lovely countryside and, just a short drive, the east coast.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Elmwood Cottage was just perfect, modern and very tastefully furnished. The location couldn't have been better, it was an excellent base to explore all the North Yorkshire Moors and its surrounds have to offer. Will definitely be back and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to spend time in this beautiful part of the country.

This is a high quality cottage in a beautiful location and we are very pleased to have stayed there. We loved the location as there are walks and footpaths from the front door. It is also near to Stokesley which has a good range of local, independent shops and excellent caf?s, not far from a selection of supermarkets in Guisborough and a couple of miles from a pub that does very good food. The cottage is very well decorated and furnished. The beds are very comfortable and both the bathroom and en-suite facilities are of a high standard. The friendly and helpful owners were always available if needed.
