As the name might suggest Church Hill is a gently sloping section of the village that runs past Thornton le Dale's All Saints Church along the A170 Thirsk to Scarborough Road. Woodside Cottage is almost opposite the Church and stands unassumingly as a mid terrace stone cottage, under a pantile roof. The cottage comes with its own open fronted garage, private drive parking and a low maintenance, South facing garden.

Inside, the cottage is surprisingly spacious with its ground floor entrance leading into a sitting room that has a coal effect gas stove within a charming brick fire place and exposed ceiling beams. From here three steps raise up to a separate dining room and a relatively recently fitted kitchen with sky light above. The accommodation further extend to the back of the cottage with a pleasant garden room, cloak room and a rear porch that also doubles up as a utility. Stairs rise from the sitting room to access two double bedrooms; both with en suite shower facilities.

The garden to the rear is fairly low maintenance with some striking specimen plants offering a structural display of colour in what is a South facing sun trap. A footpath leads to an open fronted garage which is not only large enough of a vehicle but also a work bench. There is a further gated gravel drive in front of the garage offering another parking space accessed from Dog Kennel Lane.

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 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.

Thornton le Dale 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. Church Hill is located to the eastern edge of the village and is just a few minutes walk to its centre yet extending into open countryside and excellent walks.
