Life can be such a rush sometimes. Children’s birthday parties, the weekly shop, working until the early hours, the school run – it all adds up to a pretty hectic life.
Sometimes I just yearn to get away from everything, to reconnect with nature and slow things down a little. So every so often we pack up the kids and head for a secluded cottage holiday, somewhere we can truly switch off and relax.
I’m sure we are not alone so I’ve put together a collection of our most secluded Yorkshire cottages – keep it handy, and the next time you feel the need to escape the rat race, book one and go!
Secluded cottages in Yorkshire from Gorgeous Cottages
Surround yourself with the glorious landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park on a getaway to Springhill Cottage which is close to the peaceful Wensleydale village of Jervaulx where you'll find lovely tearooms and the gorgeous sheep-filled grounds of a 12th-century abbey. This romantic retreat comes with a bubbling hot tub so that you can make the most of countryside views and it's the perfect cottage to hunker down, switch off and escape the pressures of modern life.
Set down a long and winding private road, Partridge Cottage affords some of the best views of the North York Moors. With only the noise of game birds to disturb you, a holiday in this stunning cottage is guaranteed to relax. Strike out for a walk in the moors before heading back to the cottage for a little snooze by the wood burner.
