Little Cottage is situated in the Conservation Area of Ampleforth, with two excellent village pubs, one of which is only a stone's throw from the cottage . In addition we have a fabulous village tea room and shop with Post Office. Little Cottage has recently undergone full renovation to provide stylish and comfortable accommodation for couples.
The cottage is beautifully presented, with wood-burning stove, newly fitted traditional country kitchen, complete with baby Belfast sink. The property also benefits from a newly fitted elegant bathroom with bath and shower.
To the rear there is a private 180ft well stocked cottage garden, with garden room and open views across Ampleforth Valley. Appreciate the spectacular views whilst enjoying afternoon tea in the garden!
Ampleforth is a delightful village, nestled between the North York Moors to the north and the Howardian Hills, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the south.
