Greetings! I'm Faron, your host. Kilburn is ideally situated on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with local landmark the Kilburn White Horse within sight from the garden. There's the Mouseman Visitors centre only a matter of yards away which has a lovely cafe inside that's open to the general public and the pub The Forresters Arms right next door. The next village along the road in Oldstead, is home to TV chef Tommy Banks' restaurant The Black Swan. There's also plenty of fabulous routes ideal for biking, hiking and exploring with the Cleveland Way only being 2 miles away. The house comes with various amenities, fibre-optic high speed broadband, a Google Chromecast stick to stream Netflix etc to the TV, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, washing machine, tumble drier, dishwasher, deep fat fryer, herbs, spices, pots & pans....oh yes and 10 hens. That's right, fresh eggs every day! Don't worry a full guide of what to do and not to do will be given if you've never looked after hens before. There's also a butcher's a short walk away so you'll never be without sausage, bacon and eggs. What's not to like? 🙂 We're dog friendly and the back garden is relatively secure as long as you don't have something tiny like a chihuahua that'll squeeze through my picket fence 🙂 Feel free to message me with any questions you might have. Faron
“The Chicken Cottage is a superb spot. Lovely peaceful cottage in an idyllic setting with stunning landscapes on the doorstep, and not far from great pubs, walks and transport links. Hard to beat waking up to the gentle clicking of hens, who kindly left us breakfast each day! Thoroughly recommend and will defo be back.”
This property is a former cobbler's cottage, situated in the beautiful North Yorkshire village of Sessay.

The house has a private patio with table and chairs and bbq. If you wish, please feel free to bring a well-behaved pet.
“Andrew and Suki’s cottage was absolute perfection! The location is close to York and other surrounding areas but incredibly secluded, which is exactly what we wanted. We dined at the Black Swan and it was only a 15-min drive away. The cottage itself is perfectly equipped with everything you need for your stay and finished to the highest standard. Everything was sparkling clean and fresh. Enjoying a glass of red wine by the fire will be remembered for a long time yet! You wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else in the area.”
Black Bull Barn is a stylish bolthole in the village Husthwaite within easy reach of York, the North York Moors and within striking distance of Whitby, the east coast and the Dales. An ideal place to escape from everyday life for a relaxing break and to recharge your batteries.
“Wow, this is one of the best places I have stayed. Sarah is lovely and so helpful recommending local places to eat, as well as plenty of suggestions how to spend your day in this beautiful part of Yorkshire. The Barn is absolutely stunning. A lovely and well equipped kitchen leads into a very cosy lounge with log burner and subtle lighting. Upstairs is a spacious bedroom with a fabulously comfortable bed and crisp clean linen from the White Company. The bathroom is spotless with a good powerful shower. Outside is a relaxing seating area where you can enjoy Sarah’s well kept garden and is perfect for enjoying an early evening cocktail or some good old Yorkshire tea, which ever takes your preference. I really couldn’t recommend the Barn more highly. Husthwaite is close to a variety of Yorkshire’s quaint villages including Malton and is not far from Castle Howard and the city of York. All in all an unforgettable place to stay.”
