THE current owners of this charming property have summed up the feel of this cottage perfectly with their “cosy” ornament placed above the fireplace.

Lavender Cottage, on the market with Peter Illingworth at a guide price of between £480,000 to £520,000, has been well looked after and remains in immaculate condition, boasting warm neutral colours for a welcoming feel throughout.

The cottage is set in the stunning location of the North York Moors National Park village of Hutton-le-Hole. It looks out on to the village green and has on-street parking.

From the outset, the traditional nature of this cottage is evident with the white door and painted white windows.

Walking into the cottage, the large sitting room boasts a fireplace set in a brick hearth and surround and has ample space for sofas, chairs and a dining table. The kitchen has white wall units and cupboards with wooden worktop surfaces and tiled walls. A downstairs bathroom and utility room completes the ground floor of the house.

The house has three bedrooms, two of which are large and have sinks replicating a traditional Victorian property, while the third is smaller.

Not only does this property boast charming accommodation, but it also has an attractive single-storey annexe, Daisy Cottage, which has a sitting room, combined kitchen and dining area, bedroom and a bathroom.

The cottage’s generous back garden looks out on to the equally attractive hillside wood and the back lane leads to a double garage and another area offering generous car parking space.

The current owners said: “We fell in love with the property on a winter’s day with the grass over the village green glistening with frost.

“The views from the front and back garden are equally impressive. We just wanted somewhere to escape from urban life and Lavender Cottage has fitted in perfectly with this.”

Hutton-le-Hole is one of the most picturesque villages found in the North York Moors National Park and offers residents a pub and a church.

These three towns offer good road links to Malton which has trains heading to York, Scarborough and beyond. The North York Moors is a countryside lover’s haven of walking and exploring the great outdoors. The nearby Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, are just a stone’s throw away as are attractions including the North York Moors Steam Railway in Pickering, Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall.
