    > Tucked away in a rural setting within the North York Moors National Park, The Wheelhouse enjoys glorious views and makes a lovely holiday home with enjoyable walks from the door. The property has been carefully restored to combine a wealth of traditional features, such as exposed stonework and an unusually spacious garden room that was formerly the wheelhouse for horses threshing corn. The property has no Wi-Fi, however there is 4G coverage available in the area. The Wheelhouse is just a couple of miles from the pretty village of Swainby and well placed for visiting the market town of Thirsk and surrounding ‘Herriot Country’. A little further afield is the north east coast with its quaint fishing villages and Whitby where popular Whitby Abbey stands majestically on the headland above the traditional working harbour. For the energetic there is good surfing at Saltburn. The North York Moors and Heartbeat country provide stunning scenery and are wonderful for touring. Shops and pub 2½ miles.

    A beautiful position on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, with a panoramic view over half Yorkshire. The nearest house is a few feet away - and right in front of the conservatory window - but apart from that there are no other dwellings for almost a mile. The other house is also a holiday home. When we were there it wasn't being used, which meant that we had the place very much to ourselves. The kitchen is well-stocked, the bathroom works well, and the beds are comfortable. In early September expect the garden to be overrun with pheasants and partridges, released from their pens for the shooting season.

    Wonderful location but remote. Clean, comfortable and welcoming. Broadband would be helpful as mobile signal quite poor.

    Fantastic location and a stunning conservatory looking out over the valley. Right by the Cleveland way, and a short hike to Gold hill gives you stunning vistas. Down the road in Swainby is the Black Horse and the best pub meal we ever had!

    This is the fifth time we have stayed during the last ten years. We still love it! The location is perfect for those who want to get away from it all. It’s a 2.5 mile walk to the pub which is fine for us as that’s why we go for the fantastic walks. Unfortunately the nearest shop is a good drive away now. We will certainly be returning. I would say though there used to be a great arrival hamper so if you arrived late you didn’t need to worry about stopping on route, on our last visit there was just milk and ginger biscuits so be aware and take a few provisions.

    The view from the Wheelhouse across the countryside is superb. Sunsets are amazing. Plenty to see and do locally. We love the remote location.

    The cottage was lovely, however quiet remote. Perfect for ramblers or if you want to get away from it all. Downside was the bathroom needed some attention and the was an infestation of blue bottle flies around the windows and front door which wasn’t pleasant. If these issues were dealt with it would be 5 star.
