High Woods is situated in a stunning location in a secluded valley about 2 miles from Ampleforth.  The property comprises High Woods farm house, an attached self-contained annex and The Burrows, a 3 bedroom Detached Cottage, which has been let successfully as a holiday cottage.  Constructed of stone under pantile, the properties offer spacious, well appointed accommodation set in lawned gardens with stunning views over Shallowdale, the surrounding countryside.

High Woods is approached via Westwood Lane, which leads through attractive woodland to the entrance.  A driveway leads past the trout ponds and up to High Woods where there is ample gravel parking and a modern outbuilding with garaging.   To the east and south there is a wooded dale with trout ponds and lovely walks to and from the house.  To the west there is grassland sheltered by mature woodland.

High Woods  is a 4 bedroom Farmhouse with a large 'Country Kitchen', sitting room, conservatory and dining room.  There is an attached annex, which provides a self-contained 1 bedroom guest cottage, but which is readily useable as part of the house.  Close by, The Burrows is a 3 bedroom holiday cottage, which has been a very popular let in recent years.

Although in a secluded rural location, High Woods is very accessible with the well served village of Ampleforth only 2 miles away to the south east.  The village has 2 good public houses, an excellent village shop/post office, a coffee shop and Doctors surgery.  Nearby is Ampleforth College with its excellent sports centre.  Ampleforth is within easy driving distance of the Market Towns of Easingwold, Thirsk, Helmsley and Malton and within easy reach of the City of York some 19 miles away to the south.  There are railway stations
