Past and present meet in perfect harmony at this delightful Grade II-listed cottage, where stunning abbey views come as standard and you can enjoy wonderful countryside walks from the doorstep.

Escape the everyday at this stone-built terraced cottage; surrounded by beautiful countryside, it is close to the English Heritage site of Easby Abbey which dates from the mid-1100s.

Located in the corner of a pretty courtyard of properties, the pet-friendly cottage extends a warm Yorkshire welcome. Hang coats by the door then head straight into its striking kitchen/diner, where contemporary cabinets and an on-trend colour palette bring a sense of style to every gathering. Share the self-catering duties and enjoy the fruits of your labour at the statement dining suite – you could be forgiven for thinking you’re in a chic, city centre apartment.

The warm and inviting lounge will remind you that this is a historic building – complete with cosy sofas and a Smart TV, it has exposed ceiling beams and cottage styling.

Head upstairs and two beautifully furnished bedrooms beckon: a king-size room, and a twin room that offers stunning views of Easby Abbey from its window. The well-appointed bathroom provides the perfect space to relax and rejuvenate after a day of adventure.

When you want a breath of fresh air, a door in the lounge leads outdoors; open the wooden gate and you’ll find your own private garden, with more gorgeous views of the abbey ruins. Two dogs are welcome to join in the holiday fun – you’ll all love to start your day and unwind on a sunny evening out here.

The historic village of Easby is home to Easby Abbey, which is set on the banks of the River Swale and known as one of Britain’s best-preserved monasteries of the Premonstratensian order. A perfect spot for a summer picnic, these romantic ruins have been depicted by several artists over the centuries, including JMW Turner.

Around 1.5 miles away, Richmond is a charming market town on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale. It boasts an 11th-century castle, fine Georgian architecture, a historic theatre and a large cobbled market square. Numerous eateries make this a favourite destination for foodies. Leave your car at home and walk along the river into town for a well-deserved cream tea or fine dining experience. Don’t forget to call in at the restored former railway station, which is now home to a micro-brewery and artisan bakery.

Richmond is also known as 'The Gateway to the Dales', therefore expect to see stunning scenery peppered with countless little towns and villages all around. For something completely different, visit to the brilliant Forbidden Corner – a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises, 15 miles away near Middleham.

Less than 18 miles from your doorstep, Grade I-listed Barnard Castle and the historic market town that shares the same name is a haven for discerning shoppers and antique aficionados. The Bowes Museum here is a charming French-style chateau, built in the late 19th century and surrounded by beautiful gardens and parkland.

The house was lovely, location great for a quick walk with the dogs before bed. Or just a walk into town. We had a great holiday.

Location secon to none, close to Richmond and all its amenities. However, this accomodation had many faults and is unloved. Not worthy of the 4 star accreditation.

Absolutely lovely cottage, with an excellent location, walks from the doorstep and a lovely sitting area. The beds are comfy, the house is clean, the garden could do with a bit of love. The wifi was quite poor so bring some board games.
