Central Village Location

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 2 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. 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. The village primary school is Ofsted rated good as is the nearby secondary school, Lady Lumley’s 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 in 1977 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. Currently the cottage offers accommodation on a ground floor level with an entrance hall linking a sitting room with open fire, a kitchen big enough to dine in and with an adjoining pantry. From the kitchen back door there is also a conservatory. The property has two double bedrooms and a house bathroom. This accommodation would benefit from an extensive program of modernisation and refurbishment.

Full Planning permission has been recently granted for Rinstone cottage to be extended into its nearby range of outbuildings and reopening up its own vehicular access onto Maltongate through the boarded entrance.
