    “Thank you to Neil & Louisa for an amazing stay at Blackthorn Cottage.”

    The cottage was very well equipped, immaculately clean, very modern and even better than the listing showed. You could tell a lot of thought had gone in to every little detail! There was breathtaking views with every room and it felt very private. The hosts were brilliant and always on hand if there was anything we needed. We couldn’t recommend any higher! Thank you so much and we look forward to staying with you again

Sleeping up to four guests in two bedrooms, Blackthorn Cottage has been lovingly decorated and furnished, offering a wonderful base for exploring the North York Moors.

Discover outstanding views on arrival before entering into the open-plan living space, with patio doors opening up onto a beautiful outdoor area, a sitting area with a TV and sofas, and a dining table to gather around and a modern fitted kitchen, complete with all the essentials and more including a washing machine and dishwasher.

There are two bedrooms to rest in, with a twin bedroom and a master double bedroom, both with doors opening up to the outside area so you can enjoy the fresh countryside breeze first thing on waking.

The property sits on an idyllic working farm, and is on the outskirts of the village of Borrowby where you can find a lovely pub, The Wheatsheaf Inn.

The town of Northallerton is within easy reach where you can enjoy afternoon tea at Bettys Café Tea Rooms before visiting the National Trust's Mount Grace Priory, considered to be the best preserved Carthusian house in England.

The North York Moors National Park is teeming with excellent walking areas and routes, with The Cleveland Way being a popular waymarked trail to follow, bringing you across some breath-taking landscapes.

Take a trip further south to find the White Horse, the largest and most northerly of England's horse figures created all the way back in 1857, it's a fantastic sight to behold!

Another historic and scenic setting is the National Trust's Rievaulx Abbey and Terrace, dramatic 11th century ruins in the North York Moors with a café and visitor centre too.

About the location

BORROWBY

Thirsk 5 miles; York 28 miles.

A delightful little village of steep streets and narrow lanes, Borrowby is situated on a hilltop on the edge of the Hambleton Hills overlooking the great Plains of York and Mowbray. Standing by the old cross on the green, visitors can enjoy an unrivalled view west to the Pennines and Penn Hill dotted with towns and villages and east to the North York Moors. At the centre of Borrowby is a traditional village pub – The Wheatsheaf Inn – serving local ales and food. Just 5 miles away are the market towns of Thirsk and Northallerton with their many amenities. Thirsk is possibly best known as the Darrowby of the late James Herriot (Alf Wight), famous vet and author. Today Thirsk is at the heart of "Herriot Country", Gateway to two National Parks - the Yorkshire Dales to the west and the North York Moors to the east.
