Discover the breathtaking beauty of the Yorkshire Dales with this beautifully finished, former barn conversion to retreat to after a day of exploration.

This is a beautiful three-bedroom holiday cottage set high up on the grouse moors of Nidderdale. Surrounded by picture-postcard scenery with the rolling hills of Nidderdale quite literally on your doorstep, this property is a walker's paradise. The property is also dog-friendly allowing you and your canine companion to roam the countryside together. With the vibrant foodie town of Masham just over 5 miles away, it's an idyllic retreat for your Yorkshire break.

Thought to date back to the monks of Jervaulx Abbey, this cottage has been a labour of love for current owners and has resulted in a stunning home and luxury cottage which captures a sense of rustic chic. The stylish interior really does bring some of the outdoor inside - think natural sandstone floors, exposed brickwork and chunky timbers overhead. The living room and dining rooms have fantastic views of the Dales beyond with three ground-to-ceiling windows; this sense of space is echoed with contemporary furnishings and decor throughout.

Featuring a large open-plan lounge, a dramatic dining room with exposed stone walls, a farmhouse kitchen and three double bedrooms with family bathroom upstairs, this property exudes charm and a homely feel. The bedrooms are all tastefully furnished in soft, neutral tones and all the velux windows now have blackout blinds so you can enjoy a great night's sleep.

The cottage is set in a private courtyard with a walled garden to the front - perfect for small children to run around in. Pets are welcome and there are miles of wonderful walking to be had from the doorstep. Those with young children will delight in the myriad of farm animals to meet and they will love meeting the resident peacocks too!

There is a kennel available to use during your stay, please notify the owners at the time of booking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 3 double bedrooms sleeping a maximum of 6 people including infants
  • 1 spacious family bathroom
  • Off-road parking
  • Shop within 4 miles and pub within 3 miles

This cottage and the surrounding grounds are an incredibly special place. Situated in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, its location is a paradise, containing some of the most beautiful countryside that Yorkshire has to offer. Walk or hike for miles and explore some of the best scenery that Mother Nature has to offer.

With acres of stunning moorland on the horizon you can enjoy absolute privacy here and bask in what is truly a glorious rural retreat. But rest assured you still remain within striking distance of fine dining, horse racing and a host of historical attractions. Less than 5 miles away is the town of Masham, where elegant Georgian townhouses gather round a charming market square. With its picture-postcard good looks, dainty tea-rooms and country pubs you could happily spend the day here.

Masham also boasts two breweries (Black Sheep & Theakstons), a chocolate shop that counts Daniel Craig as a fan and a Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant.

This property is personally managed by Marion.

A beautiful barn conversion in a secluded and peaceful spot. We spent a wonderful week with simply the sound of rabbits, sheep and pheasants for company. A real haven. Comfortable and well equipped. Will return.

We loved the location of this property, and enjoyed the peace and quiet, the sounds of bird song and sheep, and yet appreciated how close we were to Masham with good pubs and shops.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
