About Surprise View Cottages - Lowna Farmhouse

Lowna Farmhouse is one of three of Surprise View Cottages delightful holiday homes. It provides a superb base for those who enjoy walking, being on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors with immediate access out onto fields, woods and a network of public footpaths and tracks including the link walk - you can enjoy great walking without having to use the car!

Each holiday cottage sits just one mile from Hutton-le-Hole, a picturesque village renowned for its Ryedale Folk Museum.

The holiday cottages are conveniently located in the heart of the country and central for touring the area and cycling. They are only twenty five miles from Whitby, York and Scarborough and have a wealth of Churches, Castles and historic Abbeys on the doorstep, along with major attractions including the North York Moors Railway, Castle Howard and Flamingoland. There are also services and shops in the nearby market towns of Kirkbymoorside, Helmsley and Pickering.

Surprise View Cottages are positioned on a working farm and just a short distance from the farmhouse which has been in the owner’s family for over two hundred years! They overlook and are near to, ancient stone buildings that formerly housed a Tannery and Mill.

Each holiday cottage has a south-facing patio area. Lowna Farmhouse (featured within this advertisement) sleeps up to eight guests, affording an exceptional position. Surprise View Cottage sleeps four and has a fenced lawned area overlooking fields and woods. Field Barn Cottage also sleeps four and sits higher up the hill with fantastic panoramic views over the valleys and moors.
