Holiday Rental House
Prospect House is a handsome, three storey, four bedroom family home and a perfect base for exploring all of the beautiful countryside and coast of North Yorkshire. The house was originally owned by a family of stonemasons who worked on the local churches, houses and schools including Ampleforth Abbey. The name of the house reflects the wonderful views of the so-called Gilling Gap from the first floor bedrooms! Ampleforth has existed as a village since Saxon times and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The village is situated at the southern boundary of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, just north of the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and surrounded by beautiful countryside, offering scenic walks and cycling routes right from the front door.
