Pick up some local produce at one of the excellent shops in Pateley Bridge (1.5 miles) and settle down to a laughter-filled dinner which stretches long into the night.

And with miles of stunning walks and mountain bike trails literally from the doorstep, the cottage is heaven for those of you who adore being out in the wilds. Check out the cathedral town of Ripon which is also well worth a visit and is just 11 miles, with its regal castle overlooking the town below. Castle Howard is another great place visit for those that love flowers and plants, as are the RHS gardens at Harlow Carr.

 

Take a spa day or have a massage at the Turkish Baths in the cosmopolitan town of Harrogate. Time a visit with the Great Yorkshire Show, it is a massive platform for farmers and local craft-makers to showcase their way of life and their produce on a grand-scale. Harrogate is best known for its convention centres and its an events hub too, so is worth seeing what is on their programme. Pateley Bridge is home to England’s longest running and oldest sweet shop – if that tickles your fancy and your taste buds, there are many places for food lovers to try excellent local fare, in and around Glasshouses.

The cottage is beautiful, comfortable and very well equipped. The views from the windows are gorgeous and even though the cottage is on a farm, its so quiet.

2 Bedrooms, 1 very small only suitable for children due to lack of headroom and no clothes hanging facility, in fact nowhere to put your clothes worn that day when getting ready for bed.

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.
