About Leanne Hannity

We have lived at Millstone Cottage since 2006, and whilst doing up our house decided to renovate our disused garage in to a holiday cottage to allow others to enjoy our beautiful space. We love living here, and hope that you enjoy staying in the cottage. Niall and I have a passion for horses and horse racing, and so we usually have a few horses in the fields, whether they be ex racehorses looking to start their new life, or current racehorses having a holiday. We aim to provide a friendly, relaxing environment for you to enjoy your holiday

Leanne Hannity purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Leanne Hannity chose Thornton Watlass

Our cottage provides the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Yorkshire Dales. The village of Thornton Watlass has a wonderful community spirit and a true Yorkshire feel. The views from the cottage are stunning, seeing for miles on a clear day.

The cottage is lovely and has everything you need or wish for. Would definitely recommend, visited with my husband, 2 children and our pet dog. The owners are great and nothing is too much trouble.

The pub around the corner is definitely an added bonus!

We will be back again.

Situated on the edge of the village green and cricket pitch, with walks and bridleways directly on the doorstep. With views of the Hambleton Hills visible from the cottage across the stable yard and fields at the back of the property where retired racehorses graze, this cottage is ideally situated for various local attractions, including Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal in nearby Ripon, along with Lightwater Valley Theme Park a 15 minute drive away. Heading North in to the North Yorks Moors you will find the town of Middleham with its 200 plus Racehorses, and the Mysterious Forbidden Corner. The area is surrounded by fantastic walking and cycling teraine, as well as waterfalls, forests, lakes, reservoirs and ancient ruins
