Moorside Cottage description

Situated in the heart of the delightful village of Ampleforth, this quintessential Yorkshire stone terraced cottage offers lovely country-style accommodation. Airy and light, the property is warm, cosy and extremely comfortable and sits adjacent to the owners’ home 12 miles from Thirsk. The carefully planned kitchen with a six hob range cooker is perfect for cooking family meals and the pretty garden is wonderful for enjoying a glass of wine on long summer evenings. A lovely selection of games, books and children’s toys are provided. There are excellent amenities in the village where you will find a playground, shop, two pubs and a café. There is also a leisure centre at Ampleforth College which is open to the public, with a gym, indoor pool and squash courts and there is a fishing lake available 1.5 miles away. This beautiful rural setting, on the edge of the North York Moors is an ideal location from which to explore this fabulous part of Yorkshire, where there are walking and cycling trails in abundance. Visit the quaint market town of Helmsley with its walled garden, castle ruins and birds of prey at Duncombe Park. Try mountain biking in Dalby Forest and Sutton bank or enjoy family fun at Flamingo Land and Lightwater Valley. The famous North York Moors steam train transports visitors from Pickering to the fishing port of Whitby and miles of sandy beaches can be found along the Heritage coastline with its traditional resorts at Scarborough and Filey. There are abbey ruins at Rievaulx and stately homes at Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall.
