Bousdale Old Stables is a VisitBritain 5 star rated self-catering cottage within the North York Moors National Park. The cottage has 3 bedrooms (sleeps 6), being exceptionally spacious and comfortable throughout. It is a recent quality conversion of Victorian outbuildings at Bousdale Farm, retaining its character with oak doors and floors throughout.
The cottage rests in the backdrop of acres of arable land and forestry in the foothills of Roseberry Topping. It's elevated location lies between the village of Great Ayton (childhood home of Captain Cook) and the historic market town of Guisborough, amongst a myriad of footpaths and bridleways. We are only one mile across the fields from the Cleveland Way, the Heritage Ride for horseback riding, and close to the Moor to Sea cycle route. Walkers and mountain bikers are offered the rare chance to explore outstanding countryside literally from the doorstep.
Despite the rural, hilltop location of the cottage, it is within easy access of many visitor attractions (see www.bousdalefarm.co.uk for suggestions). Families and their well-behaved pets are very welcome.
