Overview & description

Be sure of a warm welcome on arrival at Ash Pit Cottage….and a generous welcome pack, including local produce. So no reason for not opening the wine and enjoying the view within minutes of your arrival!

Ash Pit Cottage sits in glorious countryside on the edge of the North York Moors. With open views towards the Hambleton Hills. This beautiful Grade II listed barn conversion is the perfect hideaway for two looking for a tranquil break.

Ash Pit Cottage is proud to hold a Visit Britain 5* Gold quality grading, and, as a testament to our commitment to customer service, a VisitEngland Rose Award.

The spacious open plan living/dining room has a high, vaulted beamed ceiling; exposed stone work and oak floors throughout. A large comfy sofa and chair snuggle around the wood-burning stove, perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book. The dining area is furnished with a solid wood dining table and chairs. Built in shelving houses a wide range of books: reference, fiction and local interest. The ‘rainy-day’ cupboard contains a selection of DVDs and Jigsaws, just in case!

The stylish kitchen area has wood cabinets, in keeping with the cottage, and tasteful lighting. The kitchen is well equipped to a high standard with the best of modern appliances.

The charming bedroom is calm and peaceful, with painted exposed beams and lots of natural light. The bed is Super King-size with high quality bedding. Bedside tables, a large chest of drawers and wardrobe provide ample storage space.  Double doors lead to the bathroom, again decorated and furnished in a style sympathetic to the restoration.

Bathrobes, slippers and hairdryer are provided.

The height of luxury is an additional, separate shower room…so no need to share!

Throughout the Cottage, furnishings and décor are traditional but with a modern twist to compliment the restoration of the building. Furniture and soft furnishings are to a high standard and are updated regularly to ensure that standards are maintained.

A separate laundry room houses all you need: washing machine; tumble dryer; iron, ironing board, etc. A cool bag and beach towels are also provided.

All bed linen, towels and kitchen towels provided.

Additional kindling/logs for the wood burner are provided at no extra charge.

A wide range of information on the Cottage; how to use appliances; sightseeing/walking/cycling, and eating out in the local area are all available in the Cottage. The owner is available for any specific advice/recommendations.

Outside the Cottage, a table and chairs; two steamer chairs and parasol (in season) are in place so that you can relax looking out over the garden and wildlife pond towards the enchanting Hambleton Hills.

Beyond the garden is a further wildlife pond; an orchard and the meadow; a path is mown around the meadow so that guests can walk and enjoy the extended views.
