Beautiful rural retreat in a great location, unfortunately cut short due to Corona virus restrictions but we will return in better times
Really lovely cottage, very highly recommended.
The Granary is stylish, comfortable and cosy. The location was perfect for our needs, quiet and peaceful but still only walking distance to the local pub, which does excellent food.
Thank you Kate.
Property was very comfortable with all you need. Very clean and warm. Didn't get to explore immediate surroundings being December but sure it's lovely in the warmer months.
Fantastic week in Yorkshire
Property was excellent and katie was great, would highly recommend this location and property
The house is reached by a quarter mile long private road, yet isn't too isolated as the owner's live next door, with a detached farm house on the other side. It is incredibly quiet here, with wildlife in abundance from birds and hares to wild deer to be glimpsed across the fields in front. It also benefits from various public footpaths on and around the farm, and is only around a mile as the crow flies (along a public footpath) to the local village of Great Habton with its pub The Grapes Inn which serves excellent food.
The house is surrounded by rolling countryside. The Granary is just 5 miles from the historic town of Malton and 7 miles from Pickering and the North York Moors where countless good eateries, pubs and bars, a cinema, museums and a steam train to mention just a few attractions are open to all.
Just a few suggestions on what to do are below, and please also see our links page to local attractions and information.
For stately homes, castles and gardens, less than 10 minutes away is the stunning Castle Howard, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to the Howard family. Duncombe Park is one of Yorkshire’s foremost historic houses and estates with a spectacular landscaped garden, and the surrounding parkland open to visitors most of the year. Nunnington Hall, Scampston Walled Garden, Rievaulx Terrace and Temples and Ampleforth Abbey are just a few more wonderful sites within half an hour's drive.
Ryedale's market towns are well worth a visit. The nearest is Malton - a pretty, bustling town with 'proper' livestock markets every Tuesday and Friday, monthly farmers' markets and Saturday general markets. Great local produce, cafes, restaurants and regular food markets. It has an array of traditional shops with butchers, deli's, grocers, auctioneers and a fishmonger as well as a major supermarket. Spend a lovely afternoon strolling around the independent antiques dealers, collectables shops, rope-makers, clothes and home accessories shops. Or choose Pickering – meander around the local shops, antique centre, and see the steam trains in this ancient, small and very pretty town. And then there's Helmsley – recently won the 'best market town in Britain' award and the perfect day-trip destination. A bustling market square is towered over by the remains of Helmsley Castle, it even has its own outdoor pool, galleries and arts centre, a walled garden and luxury spa. Plenty of excellent places to eat and spoil yourself.
York is well worth a day trip and is bursting with history, shopping opportunities and lovely restaurants. It will take between 35 and 45 minutes to drive there depending on the traffic. Harrogate is a beautiful historic spa town, a little further away as it will take up to an hour to drive there. It has an excellent selection of shops and places to eat, glorious gardens, the world famous Betty's tea rooms and of course the Turkish Baths.
For the coast - Filey is a traditional fishing town with an amazing 5 mile stretch of beach and around 35 minutes away. Surfing, fishing, walking, yachting, amusements and good fish and chips on offer here. Scarborough is a larger seaside destination, divided into two bays both with blue flag beaches. It has a traditional seaside holiday feel, plenty of fishing boats and family attractions. Whitby is steeped in history. Enjoy the beach here, or climb the 199 steps that lead up to the magnificent ruins of Whitby Abbey and the churchyard that gave Bram Stoker the inspiration to write Dracula. Explore the maze of alleyways that run down to the busy quayside, learn about Captain Cook, and fish and chips here is a must, sitting overlooking the harbour. The beach at Whitby runs north for a couple of miles to Sandsend which is a charming seaside village with easy access to the beach below.
Robin Hood's Bay is a jumble of white-washed cottages tumbling down a steep hill. Runswick Bay is another village that appears to be rising out of the sea up into the cliffs, picturesque and with a wide sweeping sandy bay.
For more nearby outdoor fun the North York Moor's National Park is perfect for walkers and cyclists and the stunning scenery of the moors can be enjoyed from the car, or pulling up by a stream for a picnic and a paddle. Dalby Forest known as 'The Great Yorkshire Forest' offers miles of footpaths, bike trails, cafes and an activity centre. It also has a Go Ape and Tree Top Adventure – the award winning high wire forest adventure course of rope bridges, swings and zips as well as bike and Segway hire. Again it is only around 20 minutes drive from The Granary. Finally Eden Camp is a multi-award winning modern history themed museum housed within the buildings and grounds of a former Prisoner of War camp. It covers the history of the British Military in the 20th century and is our doorstep only 5 minutes drive away.
These are just a few of our local things to do - but there isplenty more to choose from...
About Kate Patmore
My new holiday cottage has been a labour of love to get off the ground! We live next door and look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful patch of Yorkshire. We are situated in the middle of our family's arable farm. After university, I enjoyed working in London for over ten years, before then returning home in 2007 to my beloved countryside, but continuing close working links with the south.
Kate Patmore purchased this House in 2016
Why Kate Patmore chose Malton
The Granary is so accessible to so many attractions if you feel like keeping busy, but is such a tranquil retreat if all you feel like doing is lighting a fire and realxing or sitting in the garden looking across the open fields. We have finished and accessorised the property to a high-end standard in 2016 so it is in immaculate condition, very comfortable and a relaxing place to be. We're close to the Moors, the coast, historic houses, museums, cities and local towns to explore - we have a bit of everything all on our doorstep.
What makes this House unique
The views! The peace and quiet. The spaciousness of the property despite it being only one bedroom - the rooms are all generously sized. The tasteful decor will feel calming and interesting. As a single storey barn conversion, it is also suitable for visitors with limited mobility.
