This pretty stone-built cottage is set in a peaceful location between Harrogate and Otley. Situated alongside the owners’ home on their non-working farm, you can enjoy the wonderful footpaths accessible from the front door as well as the stunning meadow grassland that you’re welcome to explore. With plenty of space for up to four guests, this charming property invites you into a welcoming home-from-home with your creature comforts, all with fantastic views of the countryside around you.

Head up the terrace steps and into the cottage where you’re greeted with a bright hallway to hang up your coats. Move through to the lovely open-plan living area, where soothing pastel colours blended with vaulted ceilings, wooden beams and a fantastic stone fireplace create a rustic farmhouse-style atmosphere that’s ideal for snuggling up in after a long day of exploration. Patio doors to the terrace and double aspect windows mean it’s also perfect for those sunny mornings; sit around the dining table at breakfast and plan your adventures or recline on the chair with a book to start your day off gently. Watch your favourite films on the TV/DVD or chill out with some music through the Bluetooth speaker in the evening. Chat with the chef as they cook in the kitchen area where they’ll find everything they need to cook up a storm. Stylish wooden cabinets, marble-effect worktops and neutral textured tiles offer a contemporary take on the farmhouse-style kitchen, with lots of quaint finishing touches adding to the appeal.

Off the entrance hall, the shower room welcomes you in for a refreshing shower among calming neutral tones; there’s also a washing machine in here so there’s no need to worry if you get a bit muddy out on a walk.

Completing the ground floor, a king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) bedroom has a tranquil feel; calming creams and whites create the best environment for a good night’s sleep. Wake up gently and read the morning paper on the reclaimed oak window seat that looks out over the orchard.

Upstairs, the galleried double bedroom is a relaxing haven. Slumber among neutral tones, wooden beams and rustic pine furniture or gaze out of the Velux window at the stars. Indulge in a soak in the corner bath in the en-suite bathroom, easing your aches and pains after a long hike around Almscliffe Crag or Riffa Wood (both 2 miles). Soft downlighting gives it a spa-like feel, so draw the blind on the Velux window and unwind in style, or flood the bathroom with light in the morning to invigorate you.

Outside, the south-facing patio is a lovely little sunspot that’s perfect for dining alfresco. Children will love running around in the shared walled garden where there is a climbing frame, swingball set and Connect4. Your four-legged friend has their own little hideaway with outdoor heated kennels, and there is lockable storage for your bikes so you can get out and explore the country lanes on two wheels.

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

Wonderful location in beautiful countryside, cottage spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. Local station was only a short drive away which made for relaxed visits to York, Harrogate, Leeds etc. Lovely walks too in picturesque local area. Will look forward to returning.

The cottage is lovely and comfortable, very well equipped with everything you could possibly want. The welcome pack was very generous and thoughtful. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. If you're looking for peace and tranquility this is the place. Lots of footpaths from the doorstep for you to wander.

Baileys Whin is a lovely cottage set in a fantastic location - absolutely brilliant for walks straight from the door in every direction.Our dog was exhausted by the time we left! The owner was very friendly and the welcome pack much appreciated - especially the fresh eggs from the farmyard hens.

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.
