This barn conversion cottage is just outside the village of Great Ayton near Guisborough on the edge of the North Yorks Moors National Park and can sleep four people in one bedroom and a sofa bed.

Somerset Cottage is a cottage that has been lovingly converted from an old barn near to the North Yorks Moors village of Great Ayton, near to the market town of Guisborough. The cottage contains one double bedroom and a sofa bed which with a wet room style shower room makes it suitable for four people. The rest of the accommodation is made up of an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and a sitting area, which contains the sofa bed. To the outside is a communal courtyard with outdoor furniture and a barbecue, plus off road parking for two cars. With its two neighbouring cottages, Somerset Cottage can accommodate up to twelve people, making this a fabulous cottage for a large family to use as a base for exploring this wonderful region.


A lovely little haven for us and not too long drives for us to visit other places, we enjoyed our stay at Somerset Cottage very much. The owner was so friendly and helpful she made us feel very relaxed.
Mrs Shields

An absolutely beautiful cottage set in a stunning village and surroundings, our family loved every minute of our holiday. I could have quite easily lived in the cottage. Thank you so much to the owner for making this holiday easy for mums, with attention to detail to the little things. The standard was excellent and loved the d?cor!
Mrs Lampard

This holiday cottage is situated along a private road, set back off the main road and so is fairly quiet. It is one of three detached holiday rentals well spaced out from each other in a spacious courtyard, only ten minutes walk from the amenities that Great Ayton has to offer in a small supermarket, butchers, baker, a couple of takeaways, two or three pubs, cafes and it's history around Captain Cook. The owner lives on site too. A short ride away from the cottage is Roseberry Topping, Captain Cook's Monument, Gribdale Gate and The Cleveland Hills if you like walking, the towns of Guisbrough and Stokesely with Middlesbrough town centre shopping and outlets on the outskirts only about 8 miles away. The holiday cottages are under new management, a friendly but not intrusive lady who clearly takes pride in thoroughly cleaning the cottage out before handover to the next resident. It was spotless, warm enough (and we were there in freezing cold December !) and felt quite airy too with plenty of car parking space. We would recommend this cottage to a friend and hope to return again soon.

We liked everything about this cottage; it is detached, in a courtyard with two others but well spaced out and car parking was no problem. It is down a quiet lane and within 10 minutes walking distance of Great Ayton and this cottage is on the doorstep of some good walks. The owner is friendly but not intrusive, she has only recently taken over ownership of the three holiday cottages and her standards of cleanliness were excellent, not just the cottage itself but the kitchen cupboards, drawers, oven, microwave, fridge - all spotlessly clean and in excellent working order. The combined living/kitchen/dining area is very spacious, light and airy. The bedroom is spacious too as is the wet room/toilet.
