Situated close to the market town of Malton and on the edge of the beautiful North York Moors this delightful character converted workshop has two bedrooms, an open plan contemporary living space and a small, paved courtyard garden with stunning borders. A larger garden is just a few yards away and is perfect for enjoying a relaxing evening, sitting and watching the setting sun.

The Workshop has been completely refurbished to exacting detail and offers elegant and modern living.

As you walk into The Workshop you are met with a beautifully light filled entrance hall, its under-floor heating will warm up your toes after a day walking on the moors. It's also a great place for your muddy boots. The utility has a useful washer/drier and an extra freezer. The design-led style of The Workshop begins here and is very much in evidence with an unusual storage unit made from recycled apple boxes and an old settle which completes the rustic vibe.

Walk through the glass double doors into the open plan living, dining and kitchen area and you are welcomed by the impressive limestone floor with under-floor heating, and together with the stylish wood-burner The Workshop really is a cottage for all seasons and exudes a cosy feel. The kitchen area is well-equipped and a perfect space for the foodies among you to cook up some culinary magic. As Malton is the food capital of the north you have plenty of local award-winning produce to choose from. Sitting proudly in the kitchen is a vintage butcher's block nestled next to a reclaimed pine dining-table. The living area continues with quirky touches such as the reclaimed storage chest used as a coffee table and soft leather chairs and sofa, just the place to relax and watch the cook at work. Games and books will keep you amused. This open plan space is ideal for romantic couples, families and friends alike.

From the living area the staircase with its glass banister leads up to the first floor. A large landing is filled with sunlight and here you will find a stylish bathroom with Bath House luxury toiletries, a rain head shower and a bath to soak achy legs after hiking the moors or spending a hectic day around the shops and sights of Harrogate and York. Relax with bubbles in the bath and bubbles in a glass, heaven. There are two light and airy bedrooms, one with a king-sized bed and one with super-king bed which can be split to use as two singles. Snuggle up in the crisp white bed linen for a great night's sleep. The history of this 200-year-old cottage is evident in the fantastic ceiling beams throughout. Chic bedroom furniture complements the country contemporary look. The views out over the working farm and gardens are delightful.

The garden is filled with beautiful perennial hedges of hydrangea, maple, roses and pieris and the pretty rose arch over the French windows gives a romantic cottage garden feel.

This charming cottage is a perfect choice for a holiday whether you are looking for rest and relaxation or an active stay walking, hiking and cycling across the fantastic moors, hills and dales of Yorkshire. The owners are on site and so is Garden Cottage (5150), ideal for a larger party of family or friends to book both together.

The workshop is located in Little Habton, a hamlet close to the market town of Malton. Malton has plenty of individual shops and is renowned as the Food Capital of Yorkshire, with artisan producers, local farm to fork produce and the famous Malton Food Fair plus monthly food markets showcasing the makers such as Florian Poirot's macarons, Bluebird Bakery's artisan breads and pastries and Roost Coffee there's something for everyone. Malton is also famous for its racing heritage, visit when the stables have an open day and marvel at the stunning beauty of the racehorses or get up early and watch them on the gallops. Travel a little further afield to see the award-winning Eden Camp housed within the grounds of a WWII prisoner of war camp. Flamingo Land is for the fun seekers, a mix of a zoo and a theme park. No visit is complete without seeing the magnificent Castle Howard, you may recognise this as the setting for both the 1981 television series and 2008 film adaptation of Brideshead Revisited and latterly Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley and the highly acclaimed Bridgerton plus many more. Visit from November and marvel at the house's transformation into a magical world with a different theme each year. Why not take a trip to the seaside, the jewel in the crown of the East Coast is Whitby, famous for its fish and chips and Cistercian abbey sat high on the cliffs, dark and foreboding it was used by Bram Stoker as inspiration for his novel Dracula. Captain Cook trained as a seaman here and left for the West Indies as captain of The Endeavour, never to return.

If you fancy a little retail therapy head no further than Harrogate or York, both have a mix of history, culture and a fantastic shopping and dining experience.

For those of a more energetic nature there are hills and fells to climb, follow the Tour de Yorkshire cycle routes or enjoy a sedate day fishing the rivers and lakes.

With so much to do and see you will certainly have a fun filled stay at The Workshop.
