Description

Situated on the edge of the beautiful North York Moors this delightful character stone-built cottage has three bedrooms and a walled patio and garden with outside seating. The property has been completely refurbished with great attention to detail and offers elegant modern accommodation with high quality furnishings and fabrics and it retains some original features and period charm. As you enter the cottage there is a pleasant and cosy lounge with an electric woodburning stove, a separate good size dining room with a door leading out to the patio and a galley style kitchen adjoining the dining room. The cottage has three pretty bedrooms and sleeps up to five guests.

The property is ideally situated at the heart of the picturesque market town of Kirkbymoorside, in the charming Old Town, close to a wide variety of independent shops while providing complete privacy and peace and quiet. Excellent bakeries and cake shops, a traditional butchers, delicatessens, pubs and tearooms are just a few steps from the front door.

Kirkbymoorside is nestled between the beautiful North York Moors National Park and Howardian Hills, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and the highly rated Kirkbymoorside Golf Club is just a three-minute drive from the property. There are many tourist attractions within an easy drive from the town, including the popular market towns of Malton, and Helmsley, delightful moorside villages such as Lastingham, Rosedale and Hutton Le Hole, the famous Castle Howard, and Flamingo Land. From nearby Pickering you can take a steam train on the North York Moors Railway across the moors, which will be familiar to fans of the TV series Heartbeat. The historic town of York with its majestic York Minster and old city walls is about a 40-minute drive away and the popular seaside towns of Scarborough and Whitby are a similar distance.

A note from the Owner:
We have been using 8 Howe End as a family holiday home for about 40 years. Before that it was where Jack, one of the tailors who worked in my grandfather’s tailoring and outfitting shop (Leadley’s), lived with his family for many years. Leadley’s started up in the Victorian period and built the premises just around the corner from 8 Howe End on Piercy End, which is now Vault Studio Space. My family (mother’s side) lived above the shop and over the years it prospered, as you can see in some of the photos in the dining room of 8 Howe End. As it grew, tailors were taken on and they lived in 8 Howe End and another house in the street. From the 1950s, as the big ready to wear clothing chains like Marks & Spencer grew the tailoring business gradually declined and when my grandfather Arnold Leadley reached retirement age he decided to close Leadley’s. He sold the shop to Midland Bank, which later became HSBC, so Leadley’s became the Kirkbymoorside branch of HSBC for about 30 years. We have tried to keep the character of the place while regularly refurbishing and maintaining it. For us, 8 Howe End, ‘Kirkby’ and the surrounding area is a home from home and we hope you will enjoy it too.

Jacks house was a lovely base for our Yorkshire holiday, the beds were very comfortable, the wifi reliable (essential with my 2 teens) and the location central for touring around the area.

Area Information

Kirkbymoorside
This thriving market town of Kirkbymoorside approx 25 miles north of York and nestled between the market towns of Pickering and Helmsley.  Kirkbymoorside ('Kirby') is a friendly, proper village rather than a tourist town and is close to some great walking and cycling routes on the North York Moors.  Pickering has a steam railway where you can enjoy a delightful ride through the countryside to Grosmont you can alight at all the stations and enjoy a local walk to make a full day of it.  For a day out at the seaside you have great access to Whitby and Scarborough.  For off road cycling then Dalby Forest is a great day out for all the family.
