Holiday Rental House
Situated in the heart of rural North Yorkshire, Argil Cottage is a luxury home from home for up to four people. We're in the middle of a quiet village on the stunning Vale of Pickering, within easy reach of the best that North Yorkshire has to offer. The spectacular North York Moors, the Yorkshire Heritage Coast and the outstanding area of natural beauty on the Hambleton Hills are on our doorstep. It's also a great base from which to explore York, Scarborough and Whitby. At Argil Cottage, we've kept the period features of a traditional detatched village cottage, but equipped it with everything you need to get the best out of your stay.

It's also a great base from which to explore York, Scarborough and Whitby. At Argil Cottage, we've kept the period features of a traditional detatched village cottage, but equipped it with everything you need to get the best out of your stay. I find the cottage works particularly well for families, with two double and one single bedroom, there's a lot of flexibility. There's also a family bathroom, downstairs WC, fully-equipped kitchen and a laundry and utility room so you can keep the family running for the whole week in the countryside. Outside the school holidays, the cottage is great for a couple's romantic break away. There's the extra space and luxury that comes with a good-sized cottage, but the cosiness and intimacy of the log fire and the rural setting. Get in touch if you would like any further information, otherwise I shall look forward to welcoming you to the North York Moors.

Thank you, guys, for coming to stay (recommended from friends back in Holland). You worked for a day in Pickering to advance your English degree and you even understand Yorkshire English now so you've passed already. See you next year. With love, Kathy

Interaction with guests
I don't live in the same village as the cottage so I definitely won't be around lots. But I do try to pop in during the week and see how you are getting on and if I can, I'll be there to hand over your keys or see you when you leave. Basically, you've got the place to yourself, but I'd always like to say hello at some point.

About the neighbourhood
We're at the heart of a small, rural village on the Vale of Pickering. The peaceful detatched cottage backs onto farmland, with views across the vale to the moors. The village has a small country pub just a short walk away, and it is a picturesque drive to the attractions of this part of North Yorkshire.
Getting around
Ryedale is a properly rural area, which means that you'll probably want to have a car to see the best of it. There is a mainline station at Malton (which is closest) and then a bus to Great Barugh - although it doesn't run every day. If you were thinking about a car-free stay, bike would be the best bet (possibly with a taxi from the station with your luggage). If you're interested in coming on a cycling holiday or using your bikes as your main means of transport, drop me a line and I'll chat through some ideas. I'm a keen cyclist myself and take my bike to the cottage lots.
