Property Details

The Space
Nestled in the centre of the beautiful market town of Stokesley, in North Yorkshire, is this delightful mid-terrace cottage.

Head away from the bustling market stalls and you will find 2 College Square.

Across three floors, you will find a living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a spacious bathroom.

The living room is the perfect place to retreat after a day exploring. With rolling countryside walks, cycle routes and a whole host of independent eateries and country pubs on your doorstep you are perfectly placed to fill your days with North Yorkshire goodness.

The fully equipped kitchen features everything you will need for your self-catering stay and with stalls and independent food stores within walking distance you can cook up a storm with local ingredients.

The bright master bedroom overlooks the busy town below. The room features a superking bed, dressed with luxury linens and has storage for your personal items.

The characterful bathroom features a solid wooden beam and steel supports. Enjoy a soak in the large freestanding bath or walk into the waterfall shower. The high level WC and matching sink add a Victorian charm to the space.

The second bedroom can be found on the second floor. This large space is in the roof of the cottage. Featuring two single beds and a large wooden desk come dressing table. This is perfect for those travelling with children or teenagers. The deep green walls, original wooden beams and chimney breast add a character to this open space.

Railings have recently been put up outside the front of the property which provide a lovely, enclosed seating area.

Stokesley is a pretty town that is well known for its Friday food, flower and craft markets, and farmers' markets on the first Saturday of each month. Stokesley Agricultural Show is held every year on the third Saturday in September, attracting visitors from all over the country. With everything from dog shows to handicrafts and delicious local delicacies on offer, it's well worth a visit.

Stroll to the east end of the town for a spectacular view of Roseberry Topping and the North York Moors, and admire the ancient mill wheel that resides there. Then, just a few yards away, discover a panorama of buildings and open spaces as you enter the town centre. From here, you can explore Stokesley Manor House at the eastern end of Market Square, and discover the Church of St Peter and Paul, with its famous mouse woodwork carved by the "Mouseman" of Kilburn!

Many quality independent shops create a friendly lively experience for those who regularly visit the town or for newcomers seeing what is on offer for the very first time. The market Place would still be familiar to Captain Cook, Yorkshire’s famous son should he be visiting today.

Small snickets reveal other businesses including teashops, gifts, home furnishings and other hidden gems.

Pros<br/>Well presented cottage in good peaceful area. Lovely beds, shower and bath.<br/>Cons<br/>No knowledge of amount of waiver costs prior to booking. Lack of transparency in this regard as it was not optional. Stated that this was for my peace of mind but not the case at all!<br/>Rubbish left under the bed, broken slats on bed, broken tap in bathroom. Offered to come and fix it but opted not to since we were only staying a couple of nights. Every time I reported an issues this required photo evidence. It really felt that the cottage had not been checked after the previous person.<br/>Due to purchasing via Airbnb but having to deal with host and stay this meant double correspondence. Had numerous emails and messages which might not have been so bad if we were staying longer but a bit much over a short stay.<br/>We only stayed a couple of nights so not a massive issue but no room for a family of four to eat together around a table.<br/>Stated two single beds but pictures in top room show double and a single.



We loved it. Stayed there over a weekend as we’d travelled to go to a wedding. No issue about the property. The only issue about Host & Stay was the unexpected necessary additional obligatory insurance payment that wasn’t included in the price - extra £25. We may have missed it in the small print somewhere



Good location.<br/><br/>Animal poo found under the bed suggesting a thorough clean has not taken place. <br/><br/>Also read the small print - this property asked for an additional £25 NON REFUNDABLE security deposit after you have booked which is not included in the booking.com price. Your other option is a £250 refundable deposit from which they take an admin fee.



Place is great and in the perfect location. Would Highly recommend for anyone wanting a cosy place to stay



Beautiful spot in Stokesley. Nicely decorated and well kept



The house was amazing top to bottom and perfect location for us. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay



Thanks for the stay.



The cottage is situated in a quiet corner of the beautiful Yorkshire market town, Stokesley. Stokesley has a variety of restaurants, pubs, shops, even a farmers market. There is plenty of parking on the cobblestoned public car park and access is via a private alley leading to the cottage door, the key for which is secured within a wall mounted key safe. The kitchen is well equipped with a hob/oven, fridge, kettle and toaster. The bathroom is spacious and equipped with a lovely walk in shower, large bath, sink and toilet. There are two bedrooms, the first floor has a super king, the second floor, two singles. We found the super king to be extremely comfortable. The living room has 2 settees and a smart TV. We would have preferred terrestrial TV but recognise that people are moving towards smart/Wifi enabled access. We enjoyed our stay, thanks Nial.



Great property in Stokesley, perfectly set back from the main drag of the town, but also so close you could touch it. Place was exactly what it said on the tin. The team at host and stay were great, the girls I spoke to unfortunately for them I was in a bad mood and hadn’t read the information properly and I took it out on them without listening or thinking. They managed me perfectly and gave me a great alternative and my idiosyncrasy and pig headed ness was dealt with. Absolute credit to the team they managed me and the situation perfectly. Would definitelyu recommend them and will hopefully be able to come again and it perfectly location for me. <br/>Thanks again to the team !



We very much enjoyed our stay at 2 College Square. The house was spotless on arrival and we had everything we needed in there. <br/>The beds were comfortable and the bathroom is lovely and modern. Stokesley is a lovely market town and we found everything we needed there.



Recommend ?



A very tidy and lovely Airbnb property equipped with everything you need. A very comfortable bed and amazing bathroom. Could not recommend this property enough for a stay in Stokesley. Perfect location. We had a great stay and will definitely be back.



The property is charming and perfectly situated in the town, it’s beautifully presented with a glorious bathroom. The only issue was an uncomfy sofa and low door heights, but if your not 6ft this probably won’t be an issue for you.<br/><br/>uncomfortable sofa and a very small kitchen.



The location was great it was right in the centre of the town to shops etc. It was nice and warm once we landed.the beds were nice and comfortable, hot water all the time, and lovely with a rain fall shower . Had lots on the tv to keep kids happy, nice, and clean .<br/><br/>The week we landed, they were doing some footpath mantanice.only down fall, no hair dryer, so had to pop to the shops for one .



Hi We loved Stokesly and the location was great, we were a little disappointed with the cleanliness of the property as my wife had to hoover when we arrived, it was also dusty so maybe it has been empty for a while and dust has settled.<br/>It would be nice to have some decent mugs for tea and coffee.<br/>The first impressions as you walk in is a view of a cleaning cupboard without any doors on it and all the mop buckets, hoovers etc are on show.<br/>If this was covered up it would present a lot better.<br/>Hope this is constructive enough.<br/>Best Regards<br/>Mark & Kelly






Location perfect, modern interior, comfy bed, fabulous shower.<br/><br/>First impression walking in, looking into a broom cupboard with no door! not good. Lounge needed painting, paint chipped blistered. Sofa and chair totally unacceptable not fit for purpose very uncomfortable. Owner did apologise for this stating couldn’t get a bigger one through door. Barely seats 4. Kitchen didn’t have a microwave which we needed, fridge didn’t have freezer compartment for making ice for drinks. Blinds needed for windows overlooked both sides. Needs champagne flutes, pint glasses and a tree of matching mugs. Only 2 bar stools so couldn’t cater for 3/4 people. No dining table. Bedroom wardrobe was full of owners plastic storage containers making it awkward to hang long clothes. Blind needed for bathroom.



A really great spot. Very clean. Kitchen well equipped. Beds very comfortable. Living room room furniture very uncomfortable. Such a shame as the rest of house terrific.



Stayed for a week whilst in between house moves and found it a great place with lots to do and see in and around Stokesley.<br/>Very clean, excellent communication and extremely comfortable.<br/>The only (reluctant) criticism is the sofa in the lounge was quite uncomfortable. Had we been staying for a couple of days it would have been fine but a week was noticeable.<br/>But please don't let this discourage others because everything else was superb!!<br/>And we'd definitely stay again.

Great location, nicely decorated - perfect for a short break



Great location in the bustling centre of Stokesley. Quirky cottage full of character ideal for a weekend. If there are more than two of you, space for eating is limited although plenty of places to eat are nearby.



Very nice property



we enjoyed our stay, thanks



Excellent location in a lovely town



Lovely stay in a nice village lots of pubs and restaurants within walking distance. A good location for visiting the area. House was clean and nicely decorated.



Nice place and location, bathroom lacks privacy
