A beautiful cottage surrounded by endless country views, this property is the perfect getaway for families or couples. Adjoining the owner's farmhouse within a working farm, it is the ultimate rural retreat.

This beautiful presented two-bedroom cottage with far reaching views across open countryside to the Hambleton Hills has elegant comfortable interiors and extensive grounds, which include an orchard. It's the perfect holiday home for families and couples yearning to escape to the country. Dating back to the 1800s, this lovely period property once accommodated the drovers who moved livestock up and down the country. Today it's been transformed by a recent refurbishment into a luxurious and stylish holiday home. Despite introducing modern comforts, the inherent character of the building has been maintained – you'll find the original beams overhead throughout downstairs ceilings.

At the heart of the home is a cosy welcoming lounge with the choice of a comfy sofa or armchair to snuggle up on. Sitting under an inglenook fireplace is the wood-burning stove making sure everyone is nice and toasty. Take a look out the window for the most glorious countryside views, just one of the things that makes this property so special. Wi-Fi is also available if you need to catch up online, and there is a TV, so you don't fall behind on your binge watching. In the next room you'll find a beautiful open-plan space home to the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen features stylish grey units and a sleek granite work-top. All mod cons are provided including an induction hob, fan oven, dishwasher and fridge. A further utility / boot room sits next door and houses a freezer and washer/dryer – a must for little ones' muddy clothes or if you enjoy walking. This area also accommodates a handy downstairs loo. From the kitchen head into the dining area featuring a traditional farmhouse table and chairs. A small inglenook fireplace is home to an electric flame-effect fire, to keep you cosy from breakfast to dinner. There's also a snuggly Laura Ashley-style sofa in here, just the spot to chill with a glass of wine before eats.

Both of the bedrooms in cottage are upstairs and both enjoy generous en-suite facilities. The first boasts a super-king-size bed which can be configured as two singles if requested. Top quality comfort sprung mattresses ensure a quality night's sleep. A wall mounted TV allows you your favourite shows any time of day. This room has an en-suite shower room with a large walk-in monsoon shower. The second double also contains a super-king bed, comfort sprung mattress and wall-mounted TV. The en-suite for this room has a walk-in shower and a separate bath made for those long hot soaks, something you only seem to have time for on holiday. Also, good news if you need to scrub down children. Whilst upstairs you will also encounter a cosy little recess in the landing complete with an armchair and book case. Choose a book and squirrel yourself away in here for the afternoon.

There is much to enjoy outside too, set within the property's extensive grounds enjoys a lovely rural aspect with gorgeous countryside on all sides. There's an enclosed orchard to explore where you'll find Bramley Apples and other fruit trees. Enjoy lunch al fresco on the outdoor table and chairs, a pleasure when the only sound is that of Yorkshire birdsong all around. A BBQ is also provided so you can make the most of those summer evenings. There is off-road parking for several cars.

Aptly situated in open countryside with views across to the Hambleton Hills and the White Horse at Kilburn this prospect is found on a working farm, offering all the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the delights of cosmopolitan Harrogate just 9.5 miles away. With miles of stunning walks and mountain bike trails literally from the doorstep, the cottage is heaven for lovers of all things outdoors. Within easy walking distance is the sweet little village of Burton Leonard, it offers local pubs with good pub grub as well as post office and village store. The handsome village of Ripley (6 miles), is a gorgeous little place which looks like a set for Downton Abbey. Little has changed in the village for many years, beautiful old stone buildings line the quiet main street and the local village pub beckons you in with its vine covered exterior and handsome good looks. Serving up great food it's a lovely choice for lunch and dinner. There's an excellent off-road cycle / walking route from Ripley right into Harrogate (5 miles) if you fancy working up an appetite for one of the town's excellent restaurants. 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.

Head a few miles in the opposite direction and you will find Pateley Bridge, a charming little market town very typical of this area of Yorkshire. The Main Street is peppered with cafes, restaurants, local stores, quality butchers and a fantastic wine shop – everything you need to stock up for your stay. You'll also find the self-proclaimed 'Oldest Sweet Shop in England' here dating back to the early 1800s - little has changed inside since then. Pateley Bridge sits at the heart of the breath taking Nidderdale landscape, itself an AONB and immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are bags of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance including the much-loved Brimham Rocks, just a few miles from the cottage.

A lovely cosy cottage that is perfectly located for easy access to the dales and moors. We had so many great days out enjoying the beautiful outdoors but we knew that when we got back we could relax inside or outside with plenty of space for the bikes and boots and great pubs only 10 minutes in the car.

We would recommend the cottage to anyone who intended to visit Yorkshire and can assure them that they would be very comfortable, and happy with their stay. The situation is ideal for touring most parts of Yorkshire. There is plenty of wood if a fire was required in the evening.

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.
