À propos de ce logement
Lovely, self-contained mini-studio apartment in a former railway station in Gilling East, on the edge of the North York Moors.
Comfy double bed with TV, wifi and en-suite. Your own entrance and kitchenette.
Fantastic walks and cycle rides straight from the door as well as lots of attractions further afield.
Platform 1 is a double bedroom, complete with small sitting corner, en-suite shower room and kitchenette.
There's a smart TV, superfast broadfast as well as hanging space for your clothes. The shower room has an easy-to-use electric shower and supplies such as hand soap, shampoo, tissues and cotton wool balls as well as plenty of loo roll.
The kitchenette has a combi-microwave oven, fridge, sink, kettle and toaster. You'll get supplies to start you off - tea, coffee, milk and biscuits - and there's a 'breakfast' bar where two people can eatcomfortably side by side.
Platform 1 also has its own seating area outside on the railway platform. It's a lovely place to sit out and has a beautiful view up towards Oswaldkirk.

A real plus about this mini-studio apartment is that it gives guests the option of catering for themselves - though there are lots of fantastic places to eat nearby, including Gilling's own Fairfax Arms which serves breakfast (reservation needed), lunch and supper.

We're away at the moment but guests are welcome to call me at any time if they need anything.
The lovely thing about Platform 1 at Gilling Station is that you can walk straight from the door into the most beautiful countryside.
There are lots of woods, lakes and streams. It's a popular spot for walkers, mountain bikers and road bikers too.
Our favourite walk at the moment is straight over the road and up the valley to the Anthony Gormley statue. It's has a wonderful view of the Ampleforth Valley and is a very special place.
Within three/five miles:
Hovingham tea rooms and bakery are a must. Their cakes are fantastic and it's set by a little stream and ford. It's a nice bike ride away.
Ampleforth Abbey is worth a visit. The tea rooms in particular are very nice.
Within ten/15 miles
Helmsley's great. It has super food shops and cafes and Friday's market is very good. Obviously there's the castle too and Duncombe Park. In summer it has an outdoor swimming pool which we like very much. The walk from Helmsley to Rievaulx is really worth doing but there's many other lovely walks too.
Nunnington Hall - Is so worth a visit. It's a stunning National Trust building and has lovely gardens too.
Castle Howard - Is just stunning. The house is wonderful as are the grounds and the garden. Goes without saying that it has lovely tea rooms and a very nice garden centre.
Easingwold - Easingwold is just a very nice market place and very much worth stopping in on your way to York. Tea Hees is a very nice coffee shop as is the Curious Table. There's also the Olive Branch which has some nice clothes upstairs and a very good antiques shop called Little Eden at the back.
York is 30 minutes to the outskirts. Fantastic place to visit at any time of year.
Realistically, you need a car to make the most of your stay. If you're eating out, the Fairfax Arms over the road is definitely to be recommended. However, if you plan to go further afield and perhaps have a tipple, you can order a taxi from Helmsley. It won't be cheap but won't break the bank either.
Platform 1, our mini-studio apartment is attached to Station House which is currently used as a holiday cottage.
The other thing to note is that mobile reception is not brilliant anywhere in this area - something we take for granted but that comes as a surprise to some visitors. Our wifi has recently been upgraded to superfast broadband.
We're a family of dog-lovers. So we're happy to welcome well-behaved dogs on request and accommodate them in an outdoor parcel shed next to your mini-studio.
