    “The cottage exceeded our expectations for facilities, location and homeliness, it was quite stunning.”

The property

A detached stone cottage oozing with charm and character, situated in the centre of Kilburn near the famous White Horse landmark.

The ideal chocolate-box retreat, couples or families can enjoy the cosy interior and delightful grounds which are well-situated for socialising or simply relaxing.

Upon entering, you will discover a farmhouse-style kitchen/diner, presented to a high standard with a dining table to set you up for those evening meals.

Choose the snug for a cosy afternoon, overlooked by exposed beams, or the lovely lounge, each are tied together with their own woodburner and sumptuous seating.

A family bathroom is also located on the ground floor, complete to that of a hotel standard, featuring both a bath and a separate shower so you can get ready in style.

Take the stairs to the three bedrooms; two doubles are decorated with pure attention to detail, showcasing beams and a sense of tradition.

The single bedroom is a quirky addition to the layout, styled with a low ceiling for a cosy cottage feel - ideal for children.

After enjoying the interior spend some time in the spacious garden, a lovely place to pour a refreshing drink and take in the delightful location whilst relaxing under the sun.

The quaint village of Kilburn, on the fringes of the North York Moors, is home to a local inn whilst also offering excellent access to the area's finest assets.

Kilburn is the home of the Yorkshire Gliding Club, which does offer taster sessions.

Kilburn is also home to the famous Robert " Mouseman" Thompson furniture with a visitor centre and a cafe.

Two miles down the road is the village of Oldstead, where you can enjoy some great food at the Black Swan michelin star restaurant.

Within easy distance are fabulous towns including the pretty town of Thirsk, as well as the striking city of York, dominating by simply astounding architecture and a wealth of quaint shops and cafés.

Also take a visit to the market town of Helmsley with Duncombe Park and the national Centre for Birds of Prey.
