Anson House is a luxurious, newly built self-catering cottage on the outskirts of Malton (only 1 mile from both the railway and bus stations) yet completely surrounded by fields. It is situated on the horseracing yard/thoroughbred Stud of Star Cottage and has been finished to a very high standard with the 27 hole golf course 150 yards (about a 7 iron) away.
There is always something in a name and Anson House is named after Avro Anson – bred, raised and raced from Star Cottage. Avro completed two Grand Nationals, finished first in the Stayers Hurdles at Cheltenham and won a multitude of flat, hurdle and chase races for us and is still here in honourable retirement. Accommodation – the cottage is double glazed throughout and open all year with full oil-fired central heating and a log burning fire.
There are two spacious en-suite bedrooms both with a choice of either twin or double beds. Bedroom 1 has bath/shower/toilet and bedroom 2 a shower/toilet. In the lounge there are two large comfy sofas which can also convert to sofa beds. There is also shower/toilet facilities on the ground floor. It has a fully fitted kitchen/dining room with dishwasher, auto washer/dryer, microwave, electric oven, hob, fridge/freezer and ironing facilities. Sky TV – (inc. Sports). is provided in all bedrooms/lounge complete with radio, VCR and DVD. All bed linen (duvets), towels and tea towels are provided.
Both bedrooms and the garden look onto the paddocks occupied by mares and foals. This stud has bred more than 200 winners including some top class ones. Ample private parking and drying facilities are provided but regrettably NO SMOKING or PETS.
