About the location


Boroughbridge 5 miles; York 15 miles; Harrogate 15 miles.

The pretty village of Great Ouseburn lies between Harrogate and York, a few miles from Knaresborough, Boroughbridge, Ripon and Easingwold. Surrounded by the rural farmland of the Vale of York, Great Ouseburn is a sleepy little village, which is served by a traditional local inn and a village shop. Perfectly placed for exploring both Yorkshire’s beautiful Moors and Dales, Great Ouseburn is close to many attractions including the Fountains, Byland and Rievaulx Abbeys and the stately homes of Newby Hall and Castle Howard, famed for Brideshead Revisited. York and Harrogate lie just 15 miles away in either direction and must be included in any itinerary whilst staying in this peaceful setting. Be sure to visit the Jorvik Viking Centre, National Railway Museum, The Shambles and the Minster of York, whilst the spa town of Harrogate offers manicured parklands, upmarket shopping and fine dining.
