Gorgeous Cottages are a family-run holiday company who LOVE Yorkshire and everything about it! We launched in 2012 with a desire to deliver the very best self-catering holidays in Yorkshire by only representing the finest properties across the region. Back then we had just a handful of luxury holiday cottages, and now we have over 170 with more Gorgeous new Cottages coming on board every month.
All of our properties are personally handpicked and inspected by us to ensure our guests arrive to a top quality cottage, ready to create memories that will last a lifetime. There’s a good reason why our reviews smash industry standards and that 98% of our guests would book with us again!
We also provide lots of in depth information to our guests prior to their holiday, allowing them to plan for (and start getting excited about!) all the fabulous Yorshire restaurants, attractions and activities before your stay.

So why Yorkshire and why Gorgeous Cottages?
“Many moons ago I visited my brother at York University and was wowed by York itself. Just like millions of other visitors. But, I also started exploring Yorkshire and found places to visit of equal grandeur, like the stunning view from the top of Rosedale. I ended up at Leeds University, and after that continued my love affair with Yorkshire, moving up to live with the family.
Why Gorgeous? Well, I like quality! If I’m taking a break from work and a hectic family life I want to be sure that I am going to be somewhere special, that I’m not going to walk in that door and be disappointed. Holidays are the very stuff of life and we understand that”
So why is Gorgeous Cottages different to any other cottage company?
“I wanted to create something quite different to the average booking agent. It’s not just that all of our properties are top quality, it’s the fact that we genuinely want to promote the location, the people, Yorkshire life, as well as the luxury cottages we market.
I want to make sure when you’re searching for and booking your holiday in Yorkshire everyone has all the information possible to help them make a decision. I want you to start getting excited about your holiday before you get here. So reading our Gorgeous Guides should help you to love Yorkshire as much as I do.”
What if there is an issue with a cottage or booking?
“We are not a huge company, so any issues get addressed quickly, and personally. A guest with Gorgeous Cottage is as likely to be helped by me as anyone in the team. We want our guests to go home with gorgeous memories, not a list of faults! So telephone or email immediately if there is an issue so we can sort things out quickly.”
What do you do with feedback?
“We want our guests to tell us how it is, so we invite guests to review their stay on Reevoo a few days after their departure. Future guests can clearly see their comments beside each cottage. We only add actual visitor’s comments so people looking at our pages can trust the feedback is genuine.
We also invite comments on our blog and encourage guests to add reviews, pictures and comments on our Facebook and social media pages.”
