A little more info on the Lyke Wake Holiday cottage North York moors


Holiday accommodation in the north york moors national park.


The holiday accommodation consist of a renovated 18th century farmhouse cottage just on the edge of the north York moors national park and only 6 miles from Great Ayton the childhood home of Captain James Cook.


The navigator and explorer, Captain James Cook spent his boyhood in the village of Great Ayton. He attended the Postgate School, now converted into the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum (open April - October).

He worshipped in the 12th Century All Saints Church (open afternoons April - October).


The cottage formerly occupied in Marton in Cleveland and probably built by Captain Cook’s father was dismantled in 1934 and now stands in Fitzroy Park, Melbourne, Australia.

In its place in Stewart's Park Middlesbrough is an obelisk built of stone taken from Point Hicks, Australia.

A monument to Captain Cook stands in a prominent position on Easby Moor.
