    Barn Owl Cottage has been converted in recent years from a former farm outbuilding and has been thoughtfully designed and finished, with considerable attention to detail. This has resulted in an attractive and very well appointed cottage for up to 4 people. Situated in an attractive rural setting, reasonably convenient for local amenities and a host of interesting places to visit, Barn Owl Cottage provides a very relaxed atmosphere with a reasonably secluded patio area accessible directly from the living area and from both bedrooms. There is some passing traffic, but we did not find this to be an annoyance. The owners, who live adjacent, are very approachable and are there if you require their assistance, but otherwise leave you in peace to enjoy your holiday. Certainly a cottage that we would consider returning to.

The small, peaceful village of Brandsby lies in the Vale of York, surrounded by the beautiful, rolling countryside of the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Close by is Crayke with an award winning gastro pub, whilst nearby Stillington provides a local shop, a Post Office, and three dining pubs, and the market town of Easingwold offers all the usual amenities, including a traditional Friday market. Brandsby is handily placed for touring, with the famous City of York only 12 miles away, whilst the North York Moors and East Coast, seaside towns of Scarborough, Bridlington and Whitby are all within an hour's drive. The surrounding area is steeped in history, with an abundance of abbeys, stately homes and gardens, such as Castle Howard, Byland Abbey and Helmsley Castle, waiting to be explored. Also close by are miniature and full size steam railways, together with Flamingo Land, Light Water Valley, The Forbidden Corner, Sea World and The Deep, great for family days out.
