Our cottage and the local area.

Here we present our two bed holiday cottage which sleeps 4 people (travel cot available for a smaller extra guest). We welcome up to three dogs and have a large secure private garden, raised terrace area and parking here

Stony Broke Cottage is situated in the small village of Ainthorpe near Danby on the North York Moors. It is within the North York Moors National Park which is named as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  We have some of the most breathtaking scenery and fantastic coastline.

There are two public houses, a bakery/cafe and a health shop within walking distance of the cottage.  There are also other public houses, a post office/tea room, a hairdressers and a local Co-op supermarket in the next village, Castleton, only 1.5 miles away. Danby train station is also within walking distance where you can pick up the Middlesbrough to Whitby line.

The North York Moors National Park Centre is a 10 minute walk away and has a wealth of tourist information and also houses a cafe, an art gallery, and indoor and outdoor children’s play areas. 

In the summer, the Moorsbus runs to nearby towns and villages including Helmsley within the National Park.  Whitby is 16 miles away and the bustling market town of Guisborough is 11 miles away.  The fishing village of Staithes and the Victorian coastal town of Saltburn are approximately 11 miles away and both of which have child/dog friendly beaches. 

On the doorstep of Stony Broke Cottage, there are several picturesque walks to take and the cottage is close enough to pick up The Cleveland Way route.

We get a lot of messages asking if the cottage garden area is enclosed for dogs. Although we can't guarantee it is 100% secure for every dog, it is enclosed all the way around with stock fencing with chicken wire (for the little escape artists 🤣), and wall. I have taken some pics to hopefully help people make their own minds up. It consists of a patio/seating area, a grassed area and a raised terrace with rattan furniture. As you can see, the fencing is such that it doesn't spoil the view for you and your dogs to enjoy.Unfortunately the weather wasn't very good when I took them so looks a bit gloomy. 🤨 ...

Stony Broke Cottage, Danby
We went to Graze on the Green in Rosedale last weekend for breakfast. I would definitely recommend it. 😋 They also serve delicious cakes and sweet treats too, and fresh bread and other groceries. If you do go when you visit the cottage, I would recommend reserving a table as they get busy, ...oh and they are dog friendly. #stonybrokecottage #grazeonthegreen #rosedale ##northyorkmoors ##northyorkshire #holiday #Holidays #cafe ...
