Lark Rise has been refurbished in 2018 and is in the wing of Merry Hall in the beautiful Village of Boltby in the North York Moors National Park. With two large bedrooms, both with hairdryers, a family bathroom, a modern kitchen and a large living room with a flame-effect fire, it is perfect for relaxing in front of after a day out exploring. There is a sitting-out area accessed via the living room and the property boasts over 30 acres of land where your furry friends can run free down to the stream at the end of the land with a sitting area. Perfect for a picnic without leaving your holiday home! There’s even a stable attached if you would like to bring your horse on holiday, available by prior arrangement with the owner. There is a bike storage area and power shower for washing your bikes off after riding one of the many cycle routes. The owners have thought of everything and even have a warm shower to rinse your dog off! Its not just the dog lovers and cyclists that are in for a treat, the village hall is open to walkers making this a popular route but you’ll also be spoilt by the number of options including The Cleveland Way, The Paradise Loop, The Sutton Bank Visitors Centre, and a myriad of routes across the National Park.
Boltby was a privately owned village until the 1950s but dates back to the 1600s with Merry Hall thought to have been built in 1658. With many historic towns and villages in the area you will be spoilt for choice including an 8 mile scenic drive which leads to the delightful market town of Helmsley, with its castle ruins, walled gardens and the International Centre for Birds of Prey at Duncombe Park. Around the bustling square with its ancient cross are an interesting mix of quaint and individual shops, cosy pubs, charming tea shops and fine dining restaurants. Thirsk, 7 miles away, is renowned for its racecourse and connections with the famous vet James Herriott as well as a busy market square with all kinds of fantastic eateries and traditional pubs to choose from. For those seeking adventure visit the gliding club at Sutton Bank and Yorkshire Outdoors at Felixkirk for off road driving. There is a wealth of history in this area with abbey ruins at Rievaulx and Byland and historic houses at Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall. The stunning Yorkshire coastline is an easy drive with the famous towns of Whitby and Scarborough well worth a visit, or head west and explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The walled city of York is just a short drive away and well worth a visit. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    An immaculate cottage in a stunning location, Lark Rise was a perfect base for exploring the eastern side of the North York Moors National Park. 30 acres of land on the property to roam in meant the early morning dog exercise was delightful and our lovely hosts, Michael and Ena, could not have been more welcoming. Thirsk is a delightful town and had all the necessities, and there are a number of attractions within easy striking distance. Boltby Forest is right on the doorstep and provides excellent local walking with the Cleveland Way also very close. Highly recommended.
