Took our two and half year old grandson for a week's holiday to introduce him to one of our favourite and frequently visited locations. The cottage is situated in the tranquil, unspoilt village of Gillamoor - even the adjacent primary school did not detract from the rural calm. Keeper's Cottage is comfortable and well appointed and ideal for a week's...

Highly recommended. We had a family holiday at Keepers Cottage the last week of August. It is very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed - including Wi-Fi and a lovely bathroom with power shower. The owners are very welcoming and happy to provide useful information, for example they mentioned a local agricultural show taking place on the Bank...

About the neighborhood
Gillamoor remains an unspoiled working village, through which sheep are regularly herded and farmers are seen going about their daily tasks. There are three farms within the village boundary.

At one end of the village, the picturesque church of St Aidan sits on 'Surprise View', which is a dramatic and panoramic view of the moors.

Although perched on the edge of the North York Moors, Gillamoor has easy access to Kirkbymoorside (2 miles) and Pickering (10 Miles) where there are a variety of food shops and supermarkets for general provisions.

Our lovely local inn & excellent country restaurant, 'The Royal Oak', is 50 yards away from the cottage door. It is renowned for the quality of its food & beers and visitors often remark on its value for money.
