Be charmed by this wooden lodge in a serene location in North Yorkshire, where sweeping countryside views can be enjoyed from the bliss of your private hot tub come morning, noon or night. Couples and small families will feel instantly at home in this single-storey, modern abode whilst a plethora of day trips await in the local area. Wildlife lovers can pay a visit to Thorp Perrow Arboretum and Bird of Prey Centre where a whole host of creatures can be seen across the 100-acre woodland gardens.

Gather in the open-plan living space and make the most of the quality time you have with one another curled up on the plush sofa by the crackle of the flame-effect bioethanol fire. Decorated in cool hues contrasting with the exposed beams and natural wood furniture, the property has a quirky style with fun flourishes throughout. Cook up a storm in the contemporary kitchen which is equipped with everything you’ll need for a fine dining experience at home and serve it up on the dual-use table which transforms into a snooker/ping pong table for evening entertainment.

For a good night’s rest, the king-size bed has a padded headboard for ultimate comfort, paired with a TV so that you can watch films in bed. The second bedroom is tastefully decorated and furnished with a single pull-out bed allowing for flexibility in the sleeping arrangements.

Step outside and make the most of the enclosed garden with a selection of outdoor games or dine alfresco on the veranda before sinking into the hot tub to watch the sky light up with stars.

Ideally situated between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors, rest assured that a whole host of adventures await on your stay in Finghall with a whole host of walking trails ranging from easy to challenging. To spend time with your loved ones in a tranquil and beautiful location, why not visit the Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park in Ripon (13 miles)? The grounds are home to more than 20,000 plants and 85 fascinating sculptures, as well as a tearoom serving up tasty treats to ensure you get the best out of your day. For the foodies, a visit to Wensleydale Creamery is a must for a cheese-tasting experience like no other.

Richmond (10 miles) 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 there or pop over for dinner at one of the excellent restaurants.

The gorgeous River Swale runs through the town and, across the river - less than a mile - are the River Swale Waterfalls. 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 which has lots to entertain young and old 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 quite brilliant Forbidden Corner, an attraction full of statues and hidden surprises, 7 miles away near Middleham.

The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey is just 12 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, 20 miles away, a World Heritage Site.

This is a superb area for walkers and cyclists with many routes from the doorstep or just a short distance away, including Alfred Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast Walk which passes close by. And with York, Harrogate and the North York Moors all within easy striking distance (under an hour’s drive on a clear run) you have lots of choice for day trips!

Lovely wooden-built cottage ideal for 3 adults and a dog! Both bedrooms were comfortable and the bathroom was superb with a shower AND a bath. Kitchen had all equipment necessary although there was limited storage space available for food etc. Hot tub was perfect with views over the local countryside and the adjacent field with horses playing. PlenRead morety to do in the area, including the heritage railway running between Leyburn and Bedale (and beyond) with a station just down the hill. Hide
