Country walks, boutique shops and foodie heaven.

- 8 June 2018 -

We are Carol and Simon. We moved to the lovely village of Coxwold in 2017 from Northamptonshire, returning to Carol’s Yorkshire roots, initially with one well behaved black Labrador – now joined by a second! Since our move we have found country walks, boutique shops and foodie heaven.

For our guests, we have created a very special luxury retreat at the Forge Cottage – which is a lovely stone annex to our home. It is the sort of boutique country cottage we like to stay in ourselves, with all the little extras needed to enjoy a holiday or weekend break in the North York Moors national park.

We love so many things about our new home: the pace of life, the individual shops, the heritage and history on our doorstep, the countryside, sunsets, the stars at night – and the great food! For the last few months we (Carol actually!) have been refurbishing Forge Cottage, transforming it into a luxury, boutique holiday cottage. We hope you will soon be able join us so you too can enjoy country walks, boutique shops and foodie heaven.…

In future blogs we hope to provide news and information on events from our village and the surrounding area, as well as sharing some of our favourite things to do… tales of country walks, boutique shops, foodie heaven and much more from Coxwold – our idyllic corner of the North York Moors national park.
