Who says you can’t book a holiday cottage for one? We’ve taken lots of bookings recently from solo-travellers, photographers, cyclists and explorers – all wanting to experience a little luxury while discovering the beautiful landscape of Yorkshire.
And of course, we have several one-bedroom luxury cottages which are perfect for solo travellers. Each one is small and perfectly formed, cosy and welcoming – just what you want when travelling alone. Read on to discover some of our fabulous Yorkshire cottages for one.
Yorkshire cottages for solo travellers
Secluded but not remote, Darcy’s Cottage is within striking distance of York, so there are great transport options within easy reach. This compact and charming one-bedroom cottage has a cosy wood burner, a beautiful master bedroom and a luxurious en-suite. You also have the comfort of living beside the owner should you need anything in an emergency.
Treat yourself to a little hotel-style luxury with all of the benefits of self-catering. Rosella Cottage is a gorgeous one-bedroom cottage set in Rosedale in the North York Moors. Kick back and chill in the luxurious monsoon shower, take a wander around the village for a drink and a scone or head over to the coast for a bracing walk along the beach.
Cedar Cottage is an immaculate one-bedroom cottage in Gillamoor in the North York Moors. It’s the very definition of country-chic with its flag-stone floors, tartan throws and a wood burner. A very sweet, compact little cottage – absolutely perfect for solo travellers, with the security of other cottages around you.
Perfect for solo-travellers who yearn to be beside the seaside, Hidden Gem is tucked away in the heart of Robin Hoods Bay. A variety of shops, cafes and pubs are within a 5-minute stroll including a great fishmonger offering seafood fresh off the boat. And when you want to feel the sand between your toes, simply follow the street from the front door down to the sea – no need for a car here.
For something extra special, The Treehouse is an indulgent treat for those travelling alone. A four-poster bed, elegant interiors and a bubbling hot tub set high up into the branches of a tree complete with twinkling fairy lights, are just some of the reasons you will fall in love with this cottage. And best of all, you don’t need to contemplate cooking as there is an excellent foodie pub just under a half-mile walk away.
The Pump House
If you’re a lover of luxury and comfort, then The Pump House is the perfect solo retreat. Set in 35 acres of rugged moorland just above the spa town of Ilkley, this former pump house feels more like a boutique hotel than a self-catering cottage. Whether you’re soaking up the mesmerising countryside views from the comfort of the lounge with its bi-folding doors or from the soothing warmth of your own private hot tub, relaxation is guaranteed.
So, if you feel the need to pack up the car and escape for a few days to yourself then come and spend some me-time in Yorkshire.
