Situated at the top of Sutton Bank, on a working beef and cattle farm, this cosy semi-detached cottage is surrounded by far reaching countryside views. Created from former farm buildings, the cottage stands adjacent to the owners farmhouse and it borders the remnants of the old Hambleton Racecourse, which is now used by the local racehorse trainers to train the up and coming stars of today’s racing world. Garbutt Cottage provides a perfect base for walkers, cyclists and riders. There are numerous footpaths from the doorstep and the Cleveland Way is close by and cycle hire and designated trails for all capabilities are available from the Sutton Bank centre and horse livery is available by arrangement with the owner.
Visit the Gliding Club at the top of the bank for a trial lesson and soar above the famous White Horse, or try some clay shooting and off road driving at Yorkshire Outdoors in Felixkirk. Close by is the market town of Thirsk renowned for connections with the famous vet, James Herriot, and there are numerous village inns serving local produce and traditional ales. Visit stately homes at Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall, abbey ruins at Rievaulx and Byland, and the World Heritage Site at Fountains Abbey.
