A pretty, stone built cottage with delightful south facing gardens, situated in the unspoilt and popular village of Ampleforth, less than 5 miles from the historic market town of Helmsley. The property comprises three bedrooms, two generous reception rooms (both with cast iron multi-fuel stoves), a conservatory overlooking the garden and a modern kitchen and utility room. The large lawned garden wraps around the property to the side and rear with a private parking area to one side. French doors from the conservatory open out onto a stone terrace area suitable for seating and barbecues.

Notably, there is potential to reconfigure, update or extend the property with plans in place (see Application No: NYM/2020/0991/FL) for a side extension and regrading of part of the garden, creating a more substantial family home. The garden benefits from southerly views across the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoys sunshine for most of the day. With a backdrop canopy of mature broadleaf trees beyond the wooden shed, the grounds surrounding the cottage have all the attributes of a typical English country garden.

The village of Ampleforth lies on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park, with good amenities including two pubs, two churches, two primary schools, a doctors’ surgery, village shop and Post Office and a well supported village hall. Nearby Ampleforth College has an indoor sports and recreation centre, including a swimming pool, which is open to public membership. Ampleforth itself is an attractive, sought-after North Yorkshire rural village with an active community, surrounded by beautiful countryside, but within easy reach of the market towns of Malton, Helmsley, Easingwold and Thirsk. The city of York is some 20 miles to the south from where London can be reached in under two hours by rail.
