There's a separate shower room, whilst outside, there is ample off road parking plus communal grounds and a private, decked veranda with furniture. Within a short walk of Victoria are the many enticing amenities of Ampleforth, and the North York Moors National Park is on the doorstep, offering wonderful opportunities for an outdoor adventure.


Slightly Disappointing
Although Victoria chalet is comfortable and well presented internally - clean, nicely furnished with all the equipment needed for a self-catering stay, we found the location slightly disappointing. The grounds housing Victoria and four other chalets and the owner/manager's property is somewhat neglected and is not as attractive as the website pictures convey. We had a small dog with us and contrary to the property description there are no walks from the door of the chalet. The site is very close to a busy road which has very narrow grassed banks on either side. We found it necessary to take the car every day to find a convenient walking area for the dog. The Ampleforth area however, is beautiful and is an ideal base from which to explore this part of Yorkshire.
