There were nice touches like fresh milk, tea, sugar and biscuits already in the property, as well as kindling, matches and logs for the fire and pleasant reading material in all the rooms. Unfortunately the shower was reported not working by the cleaners before we arrived and this was not even looked at by Thimbleby Estates until the day before we left (we were out when the electrician was due to come, didn't appear to have fixed anything). A plumber came the morning we were leaving because we also had to report that every time a tap was turned on or the toilet flushed the whole system made a howling noise. This was very inconvenient as we were a party of 3 adults and 2 teenagers who could not take a shower or flush the toilet between 10pm-9am!

About the location

Osmotherley is a picturesque North Yorkshire conservation village, with grass and tree lined streets set on a small hillside on the western edge of the North York Moors National Park, nestling between the Cleveland Hills to the east and the Yorkshire Dales to the west. Osmotherley is very popular with cyclists and walkers with the Cleveland Way and the Coast-to-Coast long distance footpaths passing close by and it’s also the start (or finish!) of the famous Lyke Wake Walk. Osmotherley has attractive stone-built houses centred around an old village cross with three pubs, a picturesque coffee shop, a well-stocked general store and a fish and chip shop. The nearby market towns of Northallerton, Stokesley, Helmsley, Thirsk and Ripon with its famous racecourse, have cobbled market squares, quaint little alleyways awash with cosy tearooms and lovely delicatessens, all offering excellent shopping and weekly markets. The historic cathedral cities of York, Ripon, Durham and Newcastle are all within an hour's drive, as well as the spa town of Harrogate; this great area has something for everyone.
