Cropton is situated on the southern fringe of the North York Moors National Park and is a community of farms, smallholdings and traditional houses and cottages only 5 minutes drive from the main A170 Thirsk to Scarborough road. This in turn gives quick and easy access to the market towns of Pickering and Kirkbymoorside to which Cropton is dependant for most of its every day amenities, although it does have its own village pub. The village is situated in the heart of great walking and cycling country and is surrounded by forestry and moorland.

Dating back to the early 1800's Northcote comprises a double fronted cottage, formerly the village school which became a dwelling house around 1870. The house was extended to the rear in the late 1940's to provide a kitchen on the ground floor and a third bedroom and bathroom upstairs. The roofline was also raised at this time to give full height ceilings in the front two bedrooms. Today, the cottage is fully modernised but still retains its original features and character to include oak beamed ceiling, fireplaces, thick stone walls and old wood panelling in the hallway. Heating is via eco-friendly, modern programmable electric radiators, supplemented by wood burning stoves in both reception rooms (the stove in the dining room has a back boiler).

Immediately behind the cottage is a private, sunny patio plus a sizeable stone outbuilding that could be used as an outside office. Behind the outbuilding is a large area of lawn, raised vegetable sets, a greenhouse, potting shed/workshop with electricity connected plus a wildlife pond providing home for newts, damselflies, dragonflies and water lilies. Beyond the boundary hedge is open farmland with extensive views.
