Lovely Cottage Garden
Feeling the urge to 'escape to the country' ? Then look no further than this splendid detached cottage nestled in the heart of the North York Moors National Park in beautiful Farndale. Rigg Cottage, as it is known, enjoys a spectacular view from every window; views over acres of farmland, moorland and forest. Farndale is a nature reserve where, each Spring, its glorious daffodils put on one of natures most beautiful shows. The nearby market towns of Kirkbymoorside, Helmsley and Pickering provide all the usual every day amenities.
The current owners have lived at Rigg Cottage for over 30 years and in that time, they have carried out many improvements to the property. In years gone by the cottage was very small with one room up and one down. What is now the dining hall and ground floor shower room was once a fold yard with an adjacent cow byre, now a double bedroom and study. The lovely farmhouse kitchen has been extended to create a dining area with a vaulted ceiling and views in every direction. The sitting room too, benefits from a superb outlook across the garden and surrounding landscape. Alongside the modern comforts of oil fired central heating, double glazing and a wood burning stove there are more traditional features including beamed ceilings, latch doors, window seats and a good old fashioned pantry!
Outside, the garden and parking area are neatly contained within dry stone walls and mature hedging. There is a detached garage, with sufficient parking in front and to the side and the garden is predominantly lawned with flower borders and an octagonal summer house.
