Immaculately kept, tranquil and comfortable
This is the kind of Wolsey Lodge, once you have visited, you don’t want to share with anyone else because it is so special. This is an outstanding 1960’s architect-designed house with huge picture windows to every room, allowing guests to take in spectacular views of the glorious Ampleforth and North Yorkshire countryside.
There is a warm and relaxing atmosphere throughout this luxury accommodation and a wonderful attention to detail which makes guests return time and time again. The bed and breakfast rooms are light, spacious and stylish with all the finishing touches such as television, radio, tea and coffee making equipment, hairdryers and beautiful toiletries, but the best part must surely be waking each morning to the stunning views from the windows.
As if this wasn’t enough, Anton and Phillip are the most delightful and attentive hosts one could wish for, with Anton looking after guests and preparing afternoon tea, and Phillip cooking the most exquisite dinners and setting guests up for a days’ activities. A hearty breakfast using the finest, and mostly, locally sourced ingredients awaits you each morning, served in the cosy dining room.
