Thornton le Dale is a 'picture postcard' village that lies within the North York Moors National Park at the foot of Dalby Forest. The market town of Pickering lies some 4 miles to the west and Scarborough, Whitby and York are all within half an hours drive. The popular market town of Malton is only fifteen minutes drive away where the rail network connects to York, Leeds and Manchester.The village itself has a good range of local amenities including a butcher, baker, post office, newsagent and general store, doctors surgery, chemist and grocery store. It also has a vibrant village community, pubs, cafes and restaurants. The village primary school is Ofsted rated good as is the nearby secondary school, Lady Lumley's secondary school in Pickering. The popular public schools, Scarborough College and Terrington Hall School are half an hours drive away.
Rinstone is a mid terrace, stone cottage that fronts Maltongate, just a few hundred yards from the village centre. It is thought to have been converted from a range of farm buildings that historically formed part of a fold yard and are likely to have been accessed through its tall boarded gates. Rinstone forms part of a walled garth that extends all the way to Roxby Road on its western boundary. Within the garth there is also an attractive stone cart shed with an adjoining covered yard and a range of brick and stone outbuildings.
Full Planning permission has been recently granted for Rinstone cottage to be extended into its nearby range of outbuildings. It has also been permitted to separate the cottage from the rest of the garth by way of a stone wall and reopening up its own vehicular access onto Maltongate through the boarded entrance.
The cart shed has been granted permission to be converted into a two bedroom property with its own garden and parking. Access will be via Roxby Road and shared with three further plots that have planning consent to be built into a pair of semi detached, one bedroomed bungalows offering ground floor accommodation, and a detached three bedroom house that will all have garden and parking.
