About Lantern Cottage

Lantern Cottage is only a short walk from Kirkbymoorside, a friendly market town with excellent amenities including The George & The Dragon Pub and the Kings Head. The traditional Yorkshire terraced cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is ideal for families and couples who appreciate its period character features such as exposed beams and an original fireplace with cosy log burner.

The North York Moors National Park is on the northern border of Kirkbymoorside. It is the perfect place for a self-catering holiday because of its independent food suppliers that include an award-winning butcher, two artisan bakeries and a grocery store, as well as good cafes, restaurants, takeaways and Bils and Rye Art Gallery. The town is also known for the quality of its monthly antique and collectable auctions, as well as the Wednesday market which has been held every week for more than seven centuries. Kirkbymoorside truly is a fantastic example of a thriving traditional Yorkshire town.

The gorgeous countryside is one of the biggest reasons people visit the North York Moors National Park, and Lantern Cottage enjoys lovely views. Every morning brings the opportunity to discover somewhere new and wonderful whether you are walking, cycling, on a horse or touring in your car. There are castle ruins, Manor Vale Woodland and Vivers Mill, the latter of which has particularly beautiful views, or walk further out of town to Kirkdale Minster and surrounding caves.

Hutton le Hole and Lastingham are two examples of the many charming villages around the area. There is a four-mile circular walk that links the two, encompassing the open-air Ryedale Folk Museum and St Mary’s church, where the 11th Century crypt is believed to be the burial place of St Cedd.

The seaside resort of Scarborough is only 25 miles away. Stretch your legs on the Moor to Sea Cycle Network which runs through Pickering and Dalby Forest on the way to the coast and is broken into smaller, stand-alone loops; walk the coastal footpath or simply lay down your towel and relax by the sea.

For those who like to get out and about exploring Pickering and Helmsley are just six miles away. Castle Howard (well known as the filmset for Brideshead) is 15 miles, and Nunnington Hall (the filmset for Most Haunted) and Rievaulx Abbey near Helmsley are both ten miles. A little further afield but still within easy reach is the ancient city of York (26 miles), Thirsk (20 miles) and Malton (12 miles), as well as Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby and Lightwater Valley.

Whether you have walked or cycled through the spectacular wilderness of the North York Moors, North Riding Forest Park or the Howardian Hills AONB, built sandcastles on the beach or simply wandered around vibrant towns and peaceful villages, Lantern Cottage will always provide a warm and comfortable welcome at the end of a fun-filled day.

Location (The North York Moors)

Accommodation Comprises:

Lantern Cottage is a period terrace house with the living areas downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. The original character has been cleverly updated with modern touches to suit 21st Century guests.


  • The fireplace with woodburning stove is a focal point of the cosy sitting room. Settle back in the leather wing chair with your feet up and a glass of your favourite tipple, or snuggle up on the couch and watch a film. There is also a dining table and four chairs.
  • There are two steps leading from the dining area into the kitchen. This is a light, airy space thanks to a skylight and glass door leading out to the terrace garden. The fitted kitchen is well-equipped with cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils.
  • A steep staircase leads from the living room to the bedrooms upstairs.


  • The master bedroom has the original exposed beams, a very comfortable king sized bed, good storage, and a television.
  • Bedroom two is in the attic, with exposed beams and lovely views of the meadow and woodland. It has two full-sized single beds which can be joined together to create a king-sized bed if required.
  • A family bathroom has a bath with electric shower above, WC and handbasin. A separate cupboard houses a washer/dryer.

Outside: Steps lead from the back door up to a walled cottage garden. There is a wooden deck with garden furniture at the far end and the garden is secure and safe for children and pets. Bikes can also be safely stored in the garden and there is on-street parking at the front of the cottage.

Additional Information: Lantern Cottage has central heating and WiFi. All utilities are included. Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome with prior agreement from the owner. Short breaks are possible depending on availability. No smoking in the cottage (you can smoke in the garden).
