Jasmine Cottage is located on a quiet lane very close to the centre of the the historic village of Kilburn in North Yorkshire, UK. It is the perfect destination and property for a relaxing country break.
The cottage is perfect for a relaxing country break, either to enjoy outdoor activities, or a few lazy days in front of an open fire.
The property is over 300 years old and was converted from the village “wash-house” many years ago.
