Postgate Nook is a beautiful luxury one bedroomed cottage at the heart of the North York Moors National Park. An ideal location for walks around the tranquil surrounding moorland and yet less than half an hour’s drive from the stunning beaches of Whitby and the Cleveland coast. The Esk Valley Railway line also provides a picturesque route through the surrounding villages and into the bustling towns of Whitby and Middlesborough. This cottage is truly idyllic in terms of both location and accommodation and is perfect for a romantic break away. With stone-built walls, flagstone floors, wooden beams and a wood burning stove, the cottage is full of charm and character, unique and well presented. The open plan lounge/kitchen/diner downstairs is the ultimate retreat after a long day out and about exploring. Sit and relax with a glass of wine next to the wood burner and plan your next day’s adventures. The luxurious bedroom upstairs boasts a unique freestanding bath where you can take a long relaxing soak, and outside there is an enclosed walled garden with lovely seating area where you can take in the fresh country air. Situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Glaisdale, the cottage offers picturesque views across the Dale, both from the cottage and the garden. Private off-road parking is also available at the property. The friendly village centre is only a mile away and boasts an award winning butchers, village store and post office.

Excellent all round. Nothing else to add really. Hope to be back soon!
We had such a wonderful time in your beautiful cottage! Waking up to a lovely sunny New Year's Day! Hoping to return soon! Thank you very much.
A magical place to stay especially at Christmas! From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed & comfortable. The owner was helpful with directions & purchasing pork pies for us from the local butcher. The Nook is small but absolutely perfectly formed, just brilliant for 2 of us. A lovely deep bath with added bath bombs was a real treat. The bed was so comfortable with really good quality bed linen, duvet & pillows, a good nights sleep is essential when staying away from home & we definitely had that. Very pretty festive decorations made us feel really at home & with the log burner on it was almost magical over the Christmas period. The views are stunning, nothing else could describe it! You could sit for hours just relaxing & looking. A tin of fat balls for the birds is a nice touch, we thoroughly enjoyed watching the little Robins. Everything you need is there, no need to worry about a thing. Nice cosy rugs to wrap up in, plenty of good quality pans, baking tins, plates, glasses etc, tea, coffee etc it’s all there. The dishwasher a bonus at Christmas, love it. We really can’t thank the owners enough. We had a lovely Christmas, we had a lovely stay. We will definitely return. We highly recommend this little slice of paradise
What a magical place to spend Christmas. When we arrived I felt quite emotional as the little cottage looked so festive with a tree and decorations. The fresh flowers lovely too! It was all warm and cosy ready for us. Mark and Moya are perfect hosts, very kind and helpful. We will definitely return to do the NYMR in the spring. Thanks for our prezzies! and thanks for a lovely Christmas. *Trenchers Fish and chips fabulous!*
We had a wonderful break at Postgate Nook. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Loved the character of the place, the wood burning stove and beautiful views across the valley. Lovely to see so many stars in the dark skies and watch the livestock being taken out to the fields as well as the birds singing away in the morning. Highly recommended for a peaceful break. We spent most days walking in the beautiful countryside. The cottage has lots of small touches that really make a difference. Thanks Moyà & Mark. All in all a restorative break.
Lovely week. We have so enjoyed exploring the dale and moors direct from the front door. Great butchers within walking distance (closes 12.30pm on Saturday). How cool to have a postbox just opposite. Exploring Whitby well worthwhile - recommend the church just below the Abbey. Most unusual. Also had a good day out at Castle Howard (via Blakey Ridge). Comfortable and quiet here. Thank you Mark and Moya and the adventurous sister. All the best K&K
This was a lovely cottage in a stunning location. The cottage was comfortable and clean with lots of little extras that made it even more special
Thanks for a great week, lovely cottage, walks and weather!
What can we say? The most beautiful, calming and peaceful retreat - the perfect "switch-off" holiday! We have loved exploring the local area (and recommend in particular the bridleway route into Glaisdale, the steam train from Grosmont to Goathland, all the little walks around Goathland, and of course the 199 steps up to Whitby Abbey - so atmospheric!). Having said that, we've also loved just sitting in the garden reading and watching the birds - such a pleasure. Mark and Moya (and Moya's sister!) made us feel like friends and we can't thank you enough for making the week so enjoyable for us. We will be back again! xxx
This property is just right for romantic couples of any age looking for a quiet space to 'catch their breath' away from busy lives. It is clean and well equipped and the hosts are warm and welcoming without being intrusive. Lovely views, accessible footpaths and 'big skies' complete the picture.
We felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay. The cottage is just right for two people who want a bit of peace and quiet.
Glaisdale is a pretty village located between the villages of Lealholm and Egton Bridge and only eight miles from Whitby. It lies on the national hiking trail the Esk Valley walk and the bluebell woods in the area are great for walks on an evening. In the 19th Century Glaisdale was an ironstone-mining village recognised by its terraces of slate roof houses. Set at the foot of the dale, in beautiful surroundings, it has great local amenities with a host of shops, pubs and cafes. Fly-fishing is available on the river Esk and there are lots of great visitors attractions in the area, especially in the nearby town of Whitby. The lovely beggars bridge in the village is said to have been built by the son of a farmer, Thomas Ferries in 1619. Thomas was considered too poor to marry his young lady, Agnes and so went to sea to earn his fortune. Due to a flood, Thomas was unable to cross the river to kiss Agnes goodbye and so upon his return from sea he married Agnes and built the bridge.
