This attractive, stone, terraced cottage is situated just off the High Street in the popular village of Hinderwell, in the North York Moors National Park and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Lion Cottage is situated in Hinderwell in the North York Moors National Park. The cottage is set over three floors, sleeping four people and has one double bedroom, one twin bedroom, a bathroom, a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with an electric fire with a dining area. Outside the cottage benefits from a front lawned garden with furniture. With picturesque walks on offer nearby, Lion Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore this beautiful area.


The cottage architecturally is old quaint and cute. The bed was comfortable, however a new replaced duvet and not one that had laundered resulting in it feeling heavy would have been appreciated. The two sofas are very cheap and uncomfortable, very low backed with fixed 'collapsed in the middle' foam seat cushions. As the cushions were integral with the sofa it was not possible to support the cushions with a blanket or magazines etc to stop sinking into the middle of the sofa when seated. The photo of the outside seating area gives the impression that it is seclude and an excellent area to eat and entertain in. It is not. The cottage is in a quadrangle the garden is open and overlooked on three sides by rows of cottages, it felt like eating center stage! Slabs, trellis and imaginative planting of quick climbers to go thru the trellis would be wonderful and make a nice outdoor area. The owners are missing a trick, the cottage is old and quaint but as it does not have stunning or interesting views, is not in a village of outstanding beauty, internally it should be comfortable and stunning. The bottle of wine is a nice touch, but I would prefer a fluffy quilt, somewhere nice to sit outdoors and comfortable seating indoors. I actually left a day early as I developed something I have never had before...back ache from sitting on the sofa.

not the best holiday rental!
Booked for a week but left a day early. The cottage was small which was fine for just the two of us. Just inside the back door was an empty space ideal for walking shoes etc but not a coat hook in sight to hang wet coats. The decor was not very well thought through as all the pictures were different colours and the bedding was mismatched with brown and turquoise sheets! On the plus side the village pub across the road was excellent as was the location of the cottage the garden was a pleasure to sit in too. Needs a more homely touch.

We had a lovely week in this beautiful cottage and village. There were so many things to do. The owners were very nice and helpful! Thank you again!
