Situation and Amenities

Castleton is an idyllic North Yorkshire Moors village with pretty cottages, stunning views and a range of facilities and shops including two pubs, a cafe, delicatessen and primary school. The village has a thriving community and is a centre for walking, with direct access to the Esk Valley Way, along with birdwatching, shooting and other country pursuits.

The church on the edge of the village houses oak furniture designed by Robert Thompson, The Mouse Man of Kilburn, hallmarked with his distinctive carving of a mouse.

Guisborough 9.6 miles, Great Ayton 14.9 miles, Whitby 17.1 miles, Middlesbrough 18.7 miles, Scarborough 14.9 miles (distances are approximate). It is served by Castleton Moor railway station, just down the hill from the village, on the Esk Valley Line, which also serves Whitby and Middlesbrough.


The ground floor entrance hall has stairs to the first floor with access through to the sitting room and the family kitchen. The kitchen enjoys views to two sides and is fitted with a range of classic country-style units and work surfaces. There is space for everything including a large kitchen table, creating a room which will no doubt become the hub of the home and a meeting point for family and friends. A door from here leads through to the stunning, oak-framed garden room with stone flagged floor, all-round views of the countryside and a central fireplace; this will soon become your favorite place to while away the hours in peace.

The comfortable sitting room is full of character and is accessible from both the garden room and the main hall. This is a lovely cosy space in which to sit and enjoy the cottage ambiance in front of the fireplace. A ground-floor cloakroom/w.c. is conveniently located to the rear.

On the first floor, there is a modern family bathroom and three bedrooms, the rear enjoying far-reaching views over the countryside.


Piper Cottage has a well-maintained and well-stocked country garden immediately behind the cottage. There is a seating area and steps down to the the secret summerhouse at the bottom of the garden: the perfect hideaway for an evening drink, a good book or possibly a little afternoon snooze.

An allotment and vegetable gardens, directly opposite the rear garden, are owned and managed by the Court Leet and it is assumed they will continue this arrangement with the new owners for the princely sum of £10 per year (current rent). This is a wonderful addition to the cottage and, with free parking across the road, it should put this idyllic cottage to the top of your list.


The property is believed to be offered freehold with vacant possession on completion.
