Park House Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
This lovely stone built Georgian house is situated in the market town of Kirkbymoorside, a mere six miles from Pickering. Situated at the top end of historic Castlegate, the property is full of beautiful original features that give it a welcoming feel. Cast iron fireplaces and wide bay windows lend an air of period charm to this lovely cottage, whilst the sitting room, with its wood-burning stove, gives the place a cosy atmosphere. The property is well served by local amenities, as well as being close to the historic Roman city of York.

Area
On the edge of the North York Moors National Park between the towns of Helmsley and Pickering lies the attractive old market town of Kirkbymoorside. This wonderfully quaint place provides reams of old world charm in the period architecture as well as the many shops, tea-rooms, pubs and restaurants. A near by 18-hole golf course caters to enthusiasts whilst the National Park provides excellent walking and magnificent scenery. The picturesque villages of Hutton le Hole and Lastingham are also worth a visit whilst nearby Pickering provides the base of the North York Moors Steam Railway – one of the essential days out for all visitors to the area whether you're a train enthusiast or not. Both the cathedral town of York and the Yorkshire Coast are within driving distance, offering the attractions of both urban areas and seaside resorts.

Mr Foss
May 2016
Park House is a very comfortable accommodation, larger than picture depicts and village location was perfect - good shops and eateries within easy walking distance. The owner is very pleasant without intruding.

Park House is a lovely house, with an excellent host.
Mr Bleeker

The Park House is a very lovely place to stay. The property is a real Georgian house with everything you need and more to make you're stay very comfortable. When you enter the front door a feeling of cosiness will grab you right away. All rooms are very stylish decorated. The owner of the Park house is kind and very helpful to give you all the information you need about the countryside.
Mrs Hofmeester

A very large and beautiful Georgian cottage and garden with very kind and helpful hosts. It's only a 5 minute walk to the pubs and shops but in a very quiet spot in town. Everything you need you'll find in the cottage. We would certainly revisit this cottage if we go to this area again.

Park House is a great base for exploring the Moors and local area. It is in a superb location - very quiet with country walks from the doorstep, but at the same time only a few minutes walk from all the amenities i.e. shops, banks, pubs, tea shops, bus stops etc. It is a lovely property in which to stay and the hosts couldn't have been more welcoming - very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Smith

The house was excellent and had everything we needed. The garden was delightful and the owners encouraged us to use it, which we did as the weather was great. A wonderful holiday destination!
Mrs Berry

We thought the accommodation provided in Park House was excellent and our hosts very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the weather was not very good but with such lovely accommodation to relax in we didn't mind too much!
Mrs Morris
June 2011
We had the most enjoyable holiday in and around Kirkbymoorside. We were made very welcome to Park House with homemade fruit cake and tea. The cottage was delightful - everything as in the brochure only better! We couldn't fault it. We would certainly return to Park House and recommend it and Sykes Cottages to our friends.
Mrs French
July 2012
The whole property was immaculately clean and well equipped. A beautiful Georgian house with character but modern facilities. The owners were very warm and welcoming - did so much to make us comfortable. Great garden, well kept to sit in, very peaceful, great central location, ideal for exploring the beach.

The best house we visited in 15 years UK. The owners are very nice and friendly. Their homemade cakes and bread were delicious. The walking in the Moors is wonderful.

Excellent location of property, superb hospitality and facilities of property. Garden and summer house were delightful. Grandfather (mother?) clock nearly came home with us. Definitely will return here if possible.
Mrs Richardson
July 2010
The cottage was in a lovely, quiet, peaceful location and with a lovely outlook over the garden. The friendliness of the owners and the little extra touches which made such a difference - more like home from home than just merely renting a house.
Mrs Handley
May 2011
It was the fulfillment of a dream and we are enormously pleased we chose Park House. The owners welcomed us warmly and have been a wonderful support during our stay. The cottage is over and above the run-of-the-mill holiday cottages. The place has the heart and soul of the owners. The decor is superior and the cleanliness is superb. The gardens are beautiful and we will leave with the happiest of memories. Sykes Cottages should be proud to have this property on their books. We continue to enjoy our holiday in the above accommodation. I did send a previous email complementing the owners on their magnificent property and their wonderful hospitality. I just want to add that this fabulous cottage has been a source of unbelievable pleasure to us. We have looked forward to this holiday for many months and every expectation has been fulfilled with regard to our choice of cottage.
Mr Tidswell

Our anniversary was made even better by a greetings card from the owner. An excellent host/hostess and would not hesitate to return.
Mrs Ray

Great holiday and a perfect cottage for us. Good location and also useful to have village nearby for pub/dinner. Cottage really spacious for two people and we liked it very much. Owners made us feel welcome and there were personal touches too which we appreciated.

The best property we have rented to-date. Comfortable, clean and furnished to a high standard. We were made to feel relaxed and welcomed by the owners. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone.
Mrs Jones
August 2009
An excellent holiday property with every amenity. Very welcoming owners and thoughtful touches like homemade cake and tea to welcome us. Lovely property and garden. All in all a lot of thought has gone into making this a homely and pleasing base for a holiday. Kirkbymoorside itself is a very attractive large village with all the amenities but none of the disadvantages of a 'tourist trap'.
Mr Johnson
May 2009
Everything was excellent at the cottage and garden. A super centre for things to see and do.

Tastefully renovated and well equipped comfortable house with lovely gardens. Charming surroundings and excellent basis for exploring Yorkshire Moors and Coast. Kikbymoorside has good shops and restaurants, recommending 'George and Dragon'

I must tell you what a wonderful cottage. I have done self-catering over the years and this out-stripped them all. We decided it was 5 star.
Mrs Grist
June 2009
The cottage was situated in a quiet part of the town with a beautiful garden for our use. We had a choice of two bedrooms even though the cottage was for only two people. Both bedrooms and the downstairs living area were tastefully furnished and the whole place was well appointed.
Mr Thomas
July 2009
The area would have had plenty to occupy us even if the weather had been bad, which it wasn't. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Kirkbymoorside has all the amenities required in the way of shops, pubs and banks.

A very warm and caring awaits you from the owners who have provided excellent accommodation. The location is central to so many places of interest, walks and not far from the coast.

Warm welcome from owner and tea waiting. Lovely property and garden, comfortable beds and helpful but unobtrusive owners. Good centre for exploring surrounding area and helpful information available in the property. No complaints or deficiences so no suggestions for improvements.

We had a warm welcome on arrival with freshly baked rolls and cakes on a tea tray waiting for us. The accommodation was well situated to exploor the North York Moors and was well equipped to a high standard. It was furnished very well and it seemed that the owners had thought of providing everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We enjoyed warm sunny weather which meant we were able to make use of the lovely garden for meals. We have no hesitation in recommending this property.

On arriving at the cottage we were welcomed by the owner who had lit a lovely log fire and had baked fresh cakes. The cottage was immaculate and had nice 'lived in'touches.This included full access to a weel presented garden. The location is excellent for visiting the Moors and the Coast is only a short drive away. The small town has excellent facilities with 4 or 5 options for those wishing to eat out,all within walking distance of the aaccom. We liked the peaceful location and didn't dislike any of it.

We loved our week in Park House in mid-July. The house is charming, very clean and comfortable, and has lots of little touches to make it feel like a home rather than a holiday rental. The bathrooms and kitchen have obviously been done up recently and seem new. The kitchen is small (one cook at a time!) but very well thought out, and you have everything you need to cook at home, which we did most nights. The main bedroom has plenty of storage for clothes and a comfortable bed. We didn't use the twin bedroom except to store our suitcases, but it was very pretty. (FYI, a previous reviewer mentioned being charged for towels, but this is no longer the case.) There are lots of guidebooks, games, puzzles, etc. plus some nice old novels. We definitely didn't need the bag of books we brought with us! We had that slightly maddening in-between weather while we were there--not cold enough to start the fire, and not warm enough to make much use of the beautiful large garden. However, we did put on the quick and efficient heating one chilly morning. The hosts are wonderful--very welcoming and friendly, but also keen not to impose on their guests, who have exclusive use of the garden. We highly recommend visiting Castle Howard on a day that one of the hosts conducts guided tours, as she is very entertaining and knowledgeable! (Tip: If you buy your Castle Howard tickets at the tourist office in Pickering, you can save a pound or two and also the need to wait in line at the ticket office when you arrive at Castle Howard. Just walk straight from the parking lot to the house itself.) Kirkbymoorside is a lovely little village. There is a weekly open-air market selling everything you can think of, plus a butcher, deli, fruit and veg shop with the biggest range of spices we've ever seen. There is also a small Spar and a small Co-op. You can find a large Co-op and a big Lidl in Pickering. We ended up buying most of our groceries in Helmsley, where there is a good butcher and a very well-stocked deli, plus another smallish Co-op. The area itself is beautiful, with lots of rolling green hills, ten billion sheep, and very friendly people. All three ruined abbeys (Fountains, Byland, and Rievaulx) are well worth visits. There are many stately homes and other attractions in the area, and we barely scratched the surface, though we would highly recommend the perhaps lesser-known Shandy Hall, home of the eccentric Laurence Sterne (author of Tristam Shandy), for an interesting and unusual tour. We can't wait to go back, and will definitely return to Park House when we do!

Hi Our stay was fantastic and really really enjoyed. It was one of the best holidays we had in a long time. Lovely surroundings, perfect location and very nice owners. As I mentioned in my last review, we would love to return but we are disappointed that the prices for 2010 have increased a lot. We don't mind a small increase in line with inflation but not 70 + pounds (can't remember now it has been a while since we last looked) so we were not impressed. Having said that we will use sykes again if another suitable accommodation appears within appropriate dates.

We stayed for a week at quite short notice. We couldn't have been made more welcomied and the owners were so helpful. The cottage had everything and more with an exquisite garden, in an absolutely ideal location. The kitchen is a bit small, but was not a problem at all. We really could not find fault it. The bed was a little hard for us, but that is personal preference. We will defininatly return, one of the best self catering cottages we have been to. Thank you Jane and Peter

Park House is well equipped and comfortable. We were made most welcome by the owners and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Plough at Fadmore and the Royal Oak at Gillamoor are recommended eating places.

The home was lovely and welcoming, however a little cold until the central heating was put on. Lovely log burner until that happened though in the sitting room. A lovely place to relax and unwind in.
