A stunning cottage, really good size. We picked it because of the two, equally lovely bedrooms, both en suite and the fab living area. The downstairs was very spacious and cosy. The best bit about the downstairs was its a big combined kitchen/dining/sitting area. This meant we could be together- especially whilst one of us was cooking- the chef wasRead morent boxed off alone in the kitchen.

We had many lovely days out, even at the end of January with some fantastic walks - the local area is lovely with plenty to do.

We had a very relaxing break at Bay Tree Barn, both bedrooms are spacious with lovely en suites in both rooms; there is also a toilet downstairs. There is a pub within walking distance, this pub does not allow inside, however does allow in the small outside seating area next to the car park. There are a number of alternative pubs within a short dRead morerive that do allow dogs inside. The barn is attached onto another 2 holiday rentals, however the patio area does allow for some privacy. There is a gate separating the barn from the driveway which is useful for a dog. We had our Jack Russell with us so took some additional pet fencing with us to ensure she was fully enclosed. The barn is well equipped and did have a Nespresso machine (bring your own pods), along with everything else you'd need to make a home from home and cook if you desire. We would absolutely recommend Bay Tree Barn. Hide

Reviewed by Rob 15th August 2018

We were delighted with the cottage. I think there is one safety consideration that needs attention - the positioning of the light switch relative to the sink in the downstairs toilet. I don't expect that would meet Health and Safety legal requirements. We would definitely consider staying here again, though, and loved our week there.

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.
