Willow Tree Cottage is in the North York Moors National Park at the edge of Boltby, near Thirsk. Magnificent, spectacular countryside views over Boltby and beyond.
Near the Cleveland Way, a Central Location to explore a large area from the Coast to the Moors to York

B&B or Self-Catering. Sleeps 2-4 in each room. Free Wifi.
Willow Tree Cottage offers two different types of accommodation - The B&B room and The Studio.
The B&B room is situated in the main house and a delicious breakfast is included in the price. The Studio, situated over the garage, has been set up as self-catering, though I can serve breakfast for you from this room if you wish.
Both rooms have fantastic countryside views over the village of Boltby. Boltby is about 5 miles from Thirsk and is well situated for you to enjoy many attractions in North Yorkshire whilst you can come home, after exploring, to the peace and quiet of Willow Tree Cottage.
Everyone who comes is thrilled by Willow Tree Cottage. We get many people returning for another visit.
Thirsk's claim to fame is its veterinary connections starting with the Herriot series - he had his surgery here. The old surgery is now a museum. More lately the area and people have been shown on Channel 5 with "The Yorkshire Vet"
If you would like to visit we would be pleased to see you.

There are many walks and footpaths near the village - we are just off the Cleveland Way - with panoramic views. Boltby forest has many paths and trails for those of you wanting to walk, cycle or ride. Sutton Bank hires cycles, Boltby Trekking Centre takes you riding or you can just walk. I have mapped out a number of circular walks from Willow Tree Cottage for you.
There are many wonderful places to see including Castle Howard, Newburgh Priory and Newby Hall. The historic city of York is only 30 miles away with its Viking and Roman past. Fountains Abbey near Ripon and Riveaulx Abbey in Helmsley are a short trip away. You can catch the steam train at Pickering and go via Grosmount to Whitby, where fish and chips are a must, or just drive over the North York Moors and marvel at the magnificent views and enjoy the rugged coastline of the east - if you're lucky you can find a fossil or two on the beach. The sea life center is in Scarborourgh.
The Black Swan at Oldstead recently voted the best restaurant in the world is just over 10 miles away.
