The space

A space large enough to accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. There is a king-size bed in the room and a single sofa bed as well as a pull out full size single mattress.

Guest access

In addition to the ensuite family room, guests have access to a private snug room, for their own personal use, and a kitchen shared with the home owners. There is off street private parking and secure bike storage. It's fine to make use of our kitchen in the evening, if you prefer to make your own meal, rather than eat out.

The neighbourhood

We are ideally placed for sight-seeing in both Harrogate and York, as we are roughly 11 miles from each. The historic and picturesque towns of Ripon, Helmsley, Thirsk and Knaresborough are also close by and there is plenty of beautiful countryside on our doorstep. There are several pubs serving food within easy reach of the village.
Five miles away is the market town of Boroughbridge offering a range of independent shops and cafes.
The beautiful Howardian Hills and Nidderdale, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks make perfect days out for walking and sightseeing. Fountains Abbey and Rievaulx Abbey are also close by.

Getting around

We are easily reached by car, being 4 miles from Junction 47 off the A1M and we have off-road private parking. Cattal train station is 4 miles away with trains to York, Knaresborough, Harrogate and beyond. There is a local bus service through the village connecting us to Ripon and York.

Other things to note

We are ideally placed for cyclists doing the Way of the Roses as we are just through Boroughbridge, 93 miles along the 170 mile route to Bridlington.

Such friendly and helpful hosts. The rooms provided were ideal for our family, excellent value for money and we adored the setting and the beautiful house. We would definitely like to stay again in the future. Little touches like a big range of games in the snug and looking at the animals in the garden really made it special as the children loved these things. A great location for us - visiting family in Ripon - and next time we will visit Newby Hall which is very close to Great Ouseburn.

I grew up in Ouseburn and came back to live here four years ago, so I know the area well. My partner is from Addiscombe in Surrey and came to live in God's Own County 17 years ago. We both enjoy travelling and have been all over the world including China, Japan, America, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, India and Europe. We are an easy-going, busy, working family. We enjoy cycling and walking and we look forward to welcoming you into our home.
