Cowslip Retreat is an oasis of stylish comfort for you to return after your enjoyable excursion, whether you have enjoyed a trip on the steam train, taken a hike accross the dramatic moors, wandered round the cobbled streets of Whitby, seen the medieval walls of York or walked along a golden sandy beach in the pretty village of Sandsend.

You can sample local produce such as delicious cake from Bothams’, freshly caught seafood or locally smoked fish from Whitby or the freshly baked bread and locally sourced meat from the Sleights village bakery and butcher.

The kitchen is fully equipped with culinary utensils, which will make preparing your supper a pleasure.

A laundry room completes the package with shelving for extra storage, washer, clothes airer, dishwasher and a selection of wellies for splashing around in!

If the weather is kind you can enjoy your meal while relaxing on the patio, if not, there is a log burning stove to keep you cosy inside.

If you want to make the most of your escape to the country and let someone else take the strain of food foraging and preparation there are many excellent foodie hotspots in the local area from simple fish and chips at the famous Magpie Café through award winning bistro food or fine dining at Green’s of Whitby to the Michelin starred Star at Harome.
