This property is part of our English Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Nestled in a pretty village, this detached property is a great base from which to explore York, Harrogate and Ripon.

Nestling in the heart of the quintessential English village of Aldborough, these former stables, adjacent to the owner’s home, have been carefully converted to retain many original features. This detached, single-storey property has a stone flagged, open-plan living area, with exposed roof trusses, and overlooks the garden and Studforth Hill, the site of an ancient Roman amphitheatre. The picturesque village of Aldborough is steeped in history, with parts of the Roman defences, two spectacular mosaic pavements, pottery, ornaments and coins all on display at the English Heritage Museum, which is around the corner from the cottage. Standing close to the village hall is the battle cross commemorating the Battle of Boroughbridge, and a plaque on the village green commemorates the RAF crew who lost their lives but avoided crashing into the village. The stocks in front of this plaque were removed from the square in Boroughbridge, when the medieval church there was demolished in 1851.The red and blue striped maypole, formerly a ship’s mast, is permanently situated on the green ready for the annual Mayday fête. There is a friendly village pub serving traditional meals, and dogs are welcome.
A variety of inns, restaurants and shops can be found in the neighbouring town of Boroughbridge, and just 5 minutes away is a local farm shop, which sells Yorkshire produce, and has a café serving home baking and a children’s play area. The cottage provides a luxury base from which to explore the surrounding area. Visit Fountains Abbey, Studley Royal Water Garden, Beningborough Hall and Castle Howard. Explore the market towns at Ripon and Knaresborough, the elegant spa town of Harrogate and the vibrant, ancient, walled city of York, with its abundance of world-renowned attractions. Family fun can be found at Brimham Rocks and Lightwater Valley, and the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors and the coastal towns of Scarborough and Whitby are all easily accessible. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    A really lovely relaxing cottage, ideal location for us to explore York and the moors. Great to have an Everhot oven and the Esse log burner, which made it lovely and cosy. Easy to access from the cottage for morning/evening walks for the dog, the village green and down to the river (or via the river to Boroughbridge to go a bit further). No problem that the garden isn't enclosed with such lovely countryside around to exercise in. I would definitely recommend to stay here!

    Enjoyed an excellent stay in a beautiful property and location, would definately visit again, only two things would improve the stay, one being a hand rail on the bath for the shower as it's not a walk in shower and the second would be making the beautiful garden dog friendly.

    Could do with a gate to enclose the garden area then dogs won’t wander off into next door Took a tie out screw but the ground was too hard to get it in. Resorted to a washing line but not ideal Otherwise fabulous accommodation

    Awesome holiday enjoyed the stay would definitely stop at the stables again. Some form of fly catcher for the living space and more hooks in the bathroom would be a welcome addition. Overall would definitely recommend this cottage on all fronts.

    Response from:
