A romantic, luxury retreat for two with a cosy log burner, delightful terrace and stunning views across the North York Moors National Park towards Whitby in the distance.
Esk View Retreat is an exquisite and romantic cottage studio with the most amazing views over the Esk Valley and the North York Moors National Park. If you’re looking for a cosy place for a romantic break for two, where you can explore the countryside and the coast, it’s perfect. Enjoy the peace and quiet of your surroundings, relax on your private terrace and take leisurely strolls to the local pub, just 5 minutes away. Meanwhile, the town of Whitby is only a short drive away and makes a great day out on the coast. To make you feel at home from the moment you arrive at the cottage, you’ll be greeted by the smell of freshly baked bread (a complimentary loaf is provided) so you can settle into country life straight away.
