About this location

The Yorkshire region

The cottage is based in the North York Moors National Park, a beautiful landscape of stunning heather moorland, spectacular coast, ancient woodland and historic sites. If cycling and walking is your thing, then the North York Moors has to be for you, with miles of footpaths, bridleways and access land for you to explore.

It really is a very special place. The great variety of landscapes in the North York Moors is what truly makes it unique and gives it a character which so many people can enjoy.

This is a land where dreams are made. Here you can experience the vast open space of moorland, listen to the call of the upland birds, walk for miles and miles or sit and watch the world go by.

You can wander through woods, saunter through picturesque villages of honey sandstone, throw pebbles in a stream or build sandcastles on the beach. All around are the signs of past generations, historic abbeys, embattled castles, churches, crosses, ancient routes. The local culture and traditions here are strong. You can listen, you can watch and you are welcome to join in.


York - a break with Tradition

Few cities rival the charm of York. Steeped in history and beauty, it offers stunning architecture, fabulous events and festivals and an eclectic range of shops, stylish restaurants and bars.

Famous for the York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral north of the Alps, its tangle of cobbled streets and a relaxed café culture, you will enjoy a wonderful break in York whatever the time of year.

Don't miss:

York Minster: A visit to this architectural masterpiece goes without saying! Admire the dazzling stained glass windows, explore the mysterious Undercroft and climb to the top of the tower for a breathtaking view of the region.

Jorvik Viking Centre: Hop into a 'time machine' and let it transport you through a Viking settlement recapturing what life was 1000 years ago. Smell the cooking aromas and putrid smells and talk to the 'locals' - An award-winning experience for all the family.

National Railway Museum: Relive the golden age of the train and explore the fascinating collection of engines and carriages.

York Castle Museum: Experience how everyday life once was in real life settings


Ampleforth is a pretty village located in the Ryedale District of North Yorkshire, situated on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. The village is small but does have several features including the Church of St Hilda, which dates back to Saxon times and was named after an English abbess who founded the Abbey at Whitby. Ampleforth Abbey is located about a mile from the village. There are a couple of pubs in the village one of which is called The White Horse, this pub gets its name from the White Chalk Horse which is carved into the hillside a few miles to the west of the village.

There is also a shop in the village. It is a tranquil and ideal location for walking, taking in the wonderful views of the area and also using Ampleforth as a base to tour the nearby towns of Thirsk and York. For the more active Ampleforth Golf course is the perfect opportunity to have some exercise, it is a nine hole course with the 2nd nine being taken from different tee positions. The course has stunning views over the moor land and surrounding woodland.

"Sheer tranquility"

We had such a relaxing break at this beautiful cottage. Its cosy - with very little spared in attention to detail.. It feels so homely. The gardens are beautiful and its so tranquil sitting down at the bottom of the garden on the decking area overlooking the rolling fields and hills. The village is about a 5 min walk down the tight leafy lane and onto the main road (slight uphill struggle on way back but thats just me being unfit). We visited both pubs in the village ; The White Horse and The White Swan but our personal preference was for the White Horse.. Intimate atmosphere, very friendly and welcoming and beautiful food . The village is chocolate box kind of stuff but as we quickly learned so are most of the villages in and around.. The local store has everything you need though we were supplied with tea, milk and a cake - thank you! We just didnt want to come baxjpk home! Ohh and free - and trouble-less- wi-fi to keep in touch with the kids at home. Signal sporadic on phone though.
