Enjoying a lovely village location, this lovely holiday property is found just a few miles from the vibrant cathedral city of Ripon (4.5 miles) and less than half an hour’s drive to Harrogate (14 miles). It offers the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the delights of cosmopolitan towns within easy reach.

Close by there's the charming little town of Boroughbridge. Set on the banks of the River Ure, this handsome town was first settled in Roman times, and today offers some good options for eats as well as some lovely walks along the river. And if you're a bit of a foodie, there are several good restaurants in the wider area. Nearby Aldborough runs a fantastic festival every June/July with opera, piano and string quartets, a true delight if you enjoy classical music. This village is also home to two spectacularly well-preserved Roman footpaths.

This area of Yorkshire has enough historical sites to keep you busy weeks with Ripley Castle, Newby Hall and Norton Conyers all within a small radius. And of course, the world-famous Fountains Abbey and the adjoining Studley Royal Water Garden (3 miles) are both within easy striking distance. West of Ripon, this World Heritage Site is deservedly one of the National Trust's most visited locations. As well as the spectacular ruins of a 12th century Cistercian abbey, the grounds are home to an Elizabethan Mansion, a medieval deer park and some of the most romantic vistas in the country.

There's also Ripon Cathedral. Smaller than its close neighbour, York Minster, it is still an awe-inspiring sight. In addition, every night for at least 450 years, the Ripon Hornblower has sounded the curfew at 9.00pm from all four sides of the obelisk in the market place, come rain or shine, followed by a 15-minute history lesson about the ceremony and the city itself – it’s an unmissable experience. If you are partial to a flutter, Ripon Race Ground has around 15 meetings from April to early September. Known as 'Yorkshire's Garden Racecourse', it has a distinct atmosphere harking back to a bygone era where traditional tea-rooms and bandstands sit alongside the champagne bar.

Harrogate is an absolute must if you're staying here. Encircled by its famous 'Stray' or '1,000 acres' of horseshoe shaped grassland, the Victorian Spa town of Harrogate has a bright and breezy open-air feel and is characterised by its impressive floral displays. And as you would expect of such a bustling upbeat town, Harrogate boasts over 300 bars and restaurants together with all the shops, swimming pools, cinemas, parks and gardens you could ever wish for. And with York (22 miles) and the Yorkshire Dales close by, there are lots of options for day trips!

A really warm and cosy cottage in a village that, although has no pub, is within a short distance of many places to visit. The owner left a lovely hamper and flowers which was a nice welcoming touch and also decorated the cottage for Christmas for us. There is plenty of space and the bathroom is truly luxurious.

Reviewed by Noel 15th November 2019

Amazing cottage in a peaceful village location but within easy reach of the Dale's and the Yorkshire moor areas, so plenty of places to both visit or explore. Also half hour drive and you can be either in Harrogate or York, both stunning places to visit. Nearest pub approx 3 mile away and nearest shop in Ripon approx 5 miles.

April cottage was wonderful; warm, clean, well equipped and located. It made for an excellent cosy break away with our dog and 2 year old.

This was our first time in Yorkshire and we couldnt have chosen a better cottage. April cottage is very cosy and comfortable but very roomy as well. We stayed with our three miniature dachshunds and they loved the log fire and all the space to run around. The location is perfect to explore both the Yorkshire Dales and The North York Moors.

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.
