Bursting with a delightful combination of rustic charm and extra special contemporary touches, this North Yorkshire cottage invites four guests to experience the very best of countryside living. This lovingly furnished retreat with a fire pit and hot tub is perfectly placed for couples and families to enjoy the ultimate North Yorkshire adventure, from uncovering the charm of the local villages to walking some of the most scenic landscapes in the country.

Set on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, there’s no shortage of countryside surrounding this gorgeous cottage to explore with your loved ones, with Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty including the stunning North Pennines and Nidderdale both within 20 miles.

Thoughtfully renovated, the contemporary decor, design and colour palette of this cosy and quaint cottage will instantly make you feel at home as soon as you walk through the front door. High ceilings and plenty of natural sun create a light, bright and serene ambience, perfect for relaxing at the end of a long day.

Follow the inviting warmth of the wood burner effect gas fire into the charming lounge and sink into the plush sofa with something chilled in hand. The Smart TV provides hours of entertainment on the cosiest of nights in, whilst the rug gives your canine companions a cosy space to curl up on to rest their tired paws.

Boasting several gorgeous skylights, the kitchen/diner is flooded with plenty of natural sunlight, creating a light and bright social space to enjoy hefty breakfast fry-ups, filling the whole family ahead of a busy day, or dining beneath the stars in the evening. The contemporary kitchen is appointed with everything you need to rustle up culinary masterpieces with your delicious local produce.

When you can’t resist the call of bedtime, you have two king-size bedrooms, one downstairs and one upstairs, dressed in crisp white linens and sumptuous, homely touches. Let the calming ambience lull you into a peaceful slumber, dreaming of tomorrow’s adventure before indulging in an invigorating shower or bubbly soak in the bath of the stylish family bathroom to kick start your morning.

Venturing outside, you will be greeted by a lawned area to the front of the cottage and an enclosed garden to the rear. Head up two steps to the gravelled area and relax on the garden furniture or, as the evening draws in, roast marshmallows over the warmth of the fire pit. Plunge into the bubbly hot tub and ease your tired muscles after an action-packed day, the ultimate way to unwind with a glass of something chilled.

Richmond is a charming market town on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale. It boasts an 11th-century castle, fine Georgian architecture, a historic Georgian theatre and a large cobbled market square as some of its many attractions. Stroll into town for a cup of Yorkshire tea at one of the many tearooms or pop over for dinner at one of the excellent restaurants.

The gorgeous River Swale runs through the town and, across the river are the River Swale Waterfalls (16 miles). You can walk in either direction along the river and deep into the countryside without having to go anywhere near the car. We also recommend exploring the restored former Richmond Railway Station, less than a mile away, which has lots to keep everyone entertained including a small cinema, cafe/restaurant, gallery, microbrewery and artisan bakery.

Richmond is also known as 'The Gateway to the Dales' so expect stunning Dales scenery within minutes of leaving the town. Peppering this glorious countryside are countless attractive little towns and villages and, if you enjoy a bit of surreal entertainment, how about a visit to the brilliant Forbidden Corner? It’s an attraction full of statues and hidden surprises, 14 miles away near Middleham.

The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey, is just 1.5 miles away. Set on the banks of the River Swale, the abbey is the perfect spot for a picnic in the summer months. There are lots of other breathtaking historic sites to explore in the Dales, including the stunning Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden, 28.5 miles, a World Heritage Site.

This is a superb area for walkers and cyclists with many routes from the doorstep, including Alfred Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast Walk which passes close by.

Lovely cosy cottage. Well equipped. Very clean. Little treats left by the owners. Quite quirky. Perfect for two couples and as a base for visiting the Dales. Hot tub a bonus. Highly recommended and value for money.

This is a beautiful, well furnished and well equipped cottage. The decor and furnishings are lovely. The kitchen is well equipped and the crockery and utensils are good. The hot tub is a lovely extra on the back patio. Beds are good! My only negative was that the cottage is situated on a busy road, and is quite hemmed in with houses built close by.Read more I found it hard with my two dogs as we could have used a bit more space. We did find good walks close by, so we did manage to exercise them. Hide
