Snowy Owl Lodge is a detached, converted barn, which provides luxury accommodation in the heart of the North York Moors. This cottage sits in 12 acres of land and is part of Dukes Ley Farm, with stunning views and spectacular wildlife calling at the various ponds. A winter visitor, the rare ’snowy owl’ inspired the name of this beautiful holiday home.
The cottage is situated in an area that is ideal for walking, cycling, bird watching, photography and artists, or simply just for a wonderful, restful break. Snowy Owl Lodge is an ideal base for exploring the Yorkshire Moors and its many hidden gems, as well as the traditional seaside resorts of Whitby and Scarborough, just a short drive away along the Yorkshire Heritage Coast.
The North York Moors is famous for its stunning scenery. Areas such as Dalby Forest and Rosedale are especially appealing. The steam railway runs from Pickering to Grosmont and traces Harry Potter stories. There are numerous acclaimed cafés and restaurants, locally with the culture and style of York city centre nearby. Local antique auctions run fortnightly at both Scarborough and Kirkbymoorside. There are many local Abbeys, but especially noteworthy is the wonderful Ampleforth Abbey and school, which is host to many concerts and events.
Inside, a fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine leads into the cosy living area with stone flagged floors, warm rugs and large leather sofa. The large double bedroom on the first floor has a supremely comfortable kingsize bed and en-suite bathroom with separate bath and walk in shower. A TV and iPod docking station are provided with ample games, films and books to help you relax and enjoy the setting. Underfloor heating ensures a cosy welcome at any time of year and garden furniture is ready to enjoy dining outdoors. There is no light pollution at Snowy Owl Lodge and an evening star gazing is a romantic end to a perfect day. Beach 27 miles. Shop and restaurant 2 miles, pub 1½ miles.
