Nestled in the midst of spectacular scenery on the Moor, Innkeeper’s Cottage has been lovingly converted by owner Emma, from the original old stone cottage into a stunning, beautiful escape just for two. With a keen eye for interiors and attention detail, Emma has created a luxurious cottage with lots of space, a large open plan kitchen with range, a log burner to keep you toasty on chilly days and a super luxe french style master suite and bathroom. Emma, who lives on the family farm next to the cottage has thought of everything you could possibly need and the little extras too that really make this cottage a beautiful escape.

The perfect location for walkers and those who like to explore, straight from the cottage there are walks across the Moor, cycle routes and woodlands to discover.

Innkeeper’s Cottage is located with Chequers Cottage which sleeps 4, so they can also be booked together for six people.

Perched up high on a beautiful spot on the West of the North York Moors Innkeeper’s sits in the heart of the rambling moor and rolling hills. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the famous Cleveland Way is nearby and there is an abundance of walking trails and cycle routes quite literally on the doorstep, some of which take you east across the Moors to the sea.

Innkeeper’s Cottage really is the best of both worlds, with the beautiful village of Osmotherley just a few miles away, here you will find the village stores, a café, gastro pubs.

The village is on the famous Cleveland Way and the starting point for the Lyke Wake Walk, making it a great meeting spot for groups of walkers and cyclists.

As you amble around this picture postcard village with lots of history, discover the medieval church and the 18th century Methodist chapel, or follow the woodland path northwest of the village to the impressive ruins of Mount Grace Priory, the best-preserved Carthusian remains in the country.

Venture a little further to discover the beautiful picture postcard market town of Helmsley the only market town in the North York Moors National Park. It even has its own castle, a microbrewery, award winning shops and restaurants and the National Centre for Birds of Prey.

Also close by is the pretty village of Ampleforth where the Abbey has been home to a Community of Benedictine monks since 1802.The Abbey church is the centre of monastic life and everyone is welcome to join the Community for Mass and the Divine office. At other times the Abbey church is open to visitors who might like to simply look around. Explore the beautiful lakes, trails and woodlands or join a behind the scenes tour of the Abbey’s orchards and Cider Mill to see how Ampleforth Abbey’s famous cider and cider brandy is made.

The famous Castle Howard is just 30 miles from Chequers and well worth a visit. This magnificent house and gardens are simply breath taking, you may remember it from the Brideshead Revisited series which was filmed here. Evelyn Waugh’s stunning novel of duty and desire set amongst the decadent, faded glory of the English aristocracy in the run-up to the Second World War.

Nearby Rievaulx Abbey, was a Cistercian abbey in Rievaulx, situated near Helmsley in the North York Moors National Park, North Yorkshire, England. It was one of the great abbeys in England until it was seized under Henry VIII of England in 1538 during the dissolution of the monasteries.

Dear Angela


We had a fantastic time at Innkeeper’s! We would definitely go back, the cottage was perfection in every way, and the views beyond imagining.  It really was a home from home.  We so appreciated the comfy bed, the lovely sofa, the easy access to Netflix on the TV, the lovely cooker and all the bits and pieces we might need (and the welcome wine/cheese/milk etc).
The booking process was very simple, as you know I spoke to you and you spoke to Emma about us taking our dog. That could not have been easier!  I really appreciated the personal touch, and that you replied to my emails – so nice not to be purely an automated process, to know there is a real person there!!
The area was fabulous, very quiet.  We went one day (pre-booked) to Hanging Stones which is essentially a longish walk, interspersed with various small barns that have been made into art ‘installations’ by Andy Galsworthy in conjunction with David Ross (of carphone warehouse fame). It is a bit of a drive to get to the starting point (about an hour) but was fantastic, as was a walk we had around Hawnby Hill on another day. We were also rather astonished at how close we were to the Dales – we headed off to Wensleydale one day (where I spent the first 5 years of my life) and it only took 45 minutes!  We didn’t head for the coast but gather that is easily accessible too.
Emma has a wealth of information about where to shop (eg Five Houses) or eat, and her knowledge of birds and the hide she is creating will be a fantastic addition to an already perfect spot.
Many many thanks, we will be back!
Kind regards

The views and walks are amazing – Eddie saw his first ever Red Kite gliing over the cottage.

This is a real gem of a place we would highly recommend family and frends to visit.

Thank you for a lovely weekend, although the weather was not at its best we had a lovely walk to Cod Beck Resevoir and then into the village of Osmotherley – the coffee shop served delicious Jaffa sponge cake! As we are now leaving, the sun is shining!

The past few days have been the perfect getaway from London. The cottage is beautiful and I felt at home instantly. Emma made me feel very welcome and taught me how to start an open fire! I will definitely recommend the cottages here to friends and family.

We had a wonderful stay at The Innkeeper’s Cottage – the cottage is outstanding, the quality of the fittings is excellent, this is the best cottage for two we have stayed in. Location is great, amazing views beautiful setting for sitting outside on the patio. We visited Helmsley, Rievaulx and the Coast, Castle Howard was beautiful and we had a lovely day in York too.

We have already recommended the cottage to family and friends and Beautiful Escapes made everything so easy for us.
