This is the perfect location for exploring the gorgeous North Yorkshire countryside, whether you’re looking to strike out on long hikes or simply enjoy an idyllic rural stroll. Situated on the edge of the pretty village of Gilling West, the cottage is just a mile from a great pub serving a range of fantastic meals. The local farm shops are perfect for keen foodies, with a choice of delis and tearooms, and chances to watch farm animals grazing in their paddocks. The historic market town of Richmond (5 miles) is known for its cobbled market square and attractions including Richmond Castle, the River Swale Waterfalls and the Station Arts Centre. Heading north, the streets of Barnard Castle are lined with independent shops, cafes, art galleries and the popular Bowes Museum (11 miles).

Approaching this stunning barn conversion along a private drive, this spacious, bright and imaginatively designed property is perched on a hillside offering glorious panoramic country views. Going inside, this stunning property features exposed ceiling beams, a lovely inglenook fireplace and a range of thoughtful little luxuries to enhance your stay.

After dinner, go through to the light and cosy lounge, sit back on the sofas, warm yourselves by the wood burner and watch a movie on the Smart TV. At the end of the day when it’s time to turn in, go downstairs where you will find a choice of three delightful, stylishly decorated bedrooms, all with comfortable king-size beds. One of the bedrooms has its own private en-suite bathroom while the other bedrooms have access to a refreshing family bathroom.

Richmond is a charming market town on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale. It boasts the remains of an impressive 11th-century castle, fine Georgian architecture, a historic Georgian theatre and a large cobbled market square as some of its many attractions. Stroll into town for a cup of Yorkshire tea at one of the lovely tearooms or pop to one of the excellent restaurants for dinner.

The gorgeous River Swale runs through the town and, across the river – less than a mile – are the River Swale Waterfalls. You can walk in either direction along the river and deep into the countryside without having to go anywhere near the car. We also recommend exploring The Station – formerly Richmond’s railway station and now a vibrant arts centre, which has lots to entertain young and old including a small cinema, cafe/restaurant, gallery, microbrewery and artisan bakery.

Richmond is also known as 'The Gateway to the Dales' so expect stunning Dales scenery within minutes of leaving the town. Peppering this glorious countryside are countless attractive little towns and villages and, if you enjoy a bit of surreal entertainment, how about a visit to the quite brilliant Forbidden Corner? This attraction is full of statues and hidden surprises, set 16 miles away near Middleham.

The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey, is just 5 miles away. Set on the banks of the River Swale, the abbey is the perfect spot for a picnic in the summer months. This is a superb area for walkers and cyclists with many routes from the doorstep or just a short distance away, including Alfred Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast Walk which passes close by. And with the North York Moors within 27 miles, you have lots of choice for day trips!

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.
