About Low PeakFar-flung on the North York Moors, is this remote cliff-top cottage.
Standing alone on a cliff-side, on the fringes of the North York Moors, is this pretty stone cottage. It was built in the late 1700s for the former manager of Alum Works, a once thriving alum mining company nearby. The two-bedroom cottage has been restored to provide a comfortable stay in keeping with its period style. Its highlight is the two cosy open fires and panoramic sea views from its front windows.
Because of its isolated location, Low Peak is a haven for bird-watching and star-gazing. Take a blanket out to its enclosed garden, wait for nightfall and watch the stars light up the dark skies. When the sun rises, head up the cliffs above Robin Hood’s Bay and see if you can spot some of the area’s sea birds.
Further afield, why not delve a little further into the North York Moors? It’s extensive with walking and cycling routes, as well as traditional inns for a spot of lunch. Or head to seaside town Whitby, just 14 miles away, for its ruined gothic abbey and pretty harbour.
