  • "Anna was so kind and helpful, we couldn’t fault the place!"

    It is very well equipped, comfortable and clean. The village has a super pub with fantastic meals. The cottage is well located between York and Harrogate. Thank you so much for an amazing holiday!

  • "Good, clean, well equipped and pretty cottage, and a really helpful and kind owner."

    We booked the cottage for what we thought was a particularly great location, being c1/2hr from each of Harrogate, York, Wetherby and Easingwold for access to the N Yorks area - and so it proved being a great base. The village of Gt Ouseburn is also a delight in its own right, with a great dog walk/stroll out past the cricket ground and over fields, and it had a v nice looking pub/eatery that unfortunately wasn't open when we went as well as a useful little shop. Very relaxing. Would recommend without hesitation.

  • "We had a wonderful time at Peartree cottage."

    Facilities were amazing and the location was fantastic for trips to York. Knaresborough and the surrounding contryside. Lots to do and see. We arrived and were treated with homemade date and oat slices which were very nice and we found the accomodation to a very high standard. Brilliant place to stay and relax. Highly recommended

  • "Pear Tree Cottage was very nice and clean."

    Anna was always readily available if we had any problems (not that we did). The location is ideal for exploring Yorkshire and the Dales or other parts of the country, we visited Scotland and the South of England during our stay, as you have easy access to the A1(M), M1, M62/66 etc. I would defiantly recommend Pear Tree Cottage to anyone and we will surely book it again when we are visiting the UK.

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.
