A luxury self-catering holiday cottage nestled on the edge of the North York Moors National Park in the pretty village of Ampleforth. The Owlets is a 19th century single storey stone outhouse that has been recently renovated to a high standard with brand new fixtures and fittings, as well as traditional features such as solid oak floors and beams. We are located just 1 mile from Ampleforth College, and 4 miles from Helmsley. All welcome, including children and well behaved pets!
Greetings! I'm Faron, your host. Kilburn is ideally situated on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with local landmark the Kilburn White Horse within sight from the garden. There's the Mouseman Visitors centre only a matter of yards away which has a lovely cafe inside that's open to the general public and the pub The Forresters Arms right next door. The next village along the road in Oldstead, is home to TV chef Tommy Banks' restaurant The Black Swan. There's also plenty of fabulous routes ideal for biking, hiking and exploring with the Cleveland Way only being 2 miles away. The house comes with various amenities, fibre-optic high speed broadband, a Google Chromecast stick to stream Netflix etc to the TV, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, washing machine, tumble drier, dishwasher, deep fat fryer, herbs, spices, pots & pans....oh yes and 10 hens. That's right, fresh eggs every day! Don't worry a full guide of what to do and not to do will be given if you've never looked after hens before. There's also a butcher's a short walk away so you'll never be without sausage, bacon and eggs. What's not to like? 🙂 We're dog friendly and the back garden is relatively secure as long as you don't have something tiny like a chihuahua that'll squeeze through my picket fence 🙂 Feel free to message me with any questions you might have. Faron
The Old Stable is in the mature grounds of a family home situated in the heart of Ampleforth' s historic East End. We are up on a hill with lovely views across the valley. The Old Stable has an open plan living space downstairs and spacious double bedroom upstairs. We are a 3- minute walk away from two lovely pubs, excellent Café and our well stocked local shop. Your hosts live in the main house next door so are usually around to offer any help or give advice on the local area.
