This charming and beautifully stylish one-bedroom cottage in a quiet North Yorkshire village offers couples a peaceful, rural retreat from their hectic lives and the opportunity to explore the great outdoors. Walkers and cyclists alike will enjoy venturing into North York Moors’ beautiful countryside. The local area also boasts a wealth of pubs and restaurants, which means treating yourselves couldn’t be easier.

Open wooden beams and home comforts in this property enhance the light and airy feel throughout. It effortlessly embraces both the country cosiness of a cottage along with elegant space providing a luxury feel: perfect to return to after a busy day exploring. The lounge has a comfy sofa to sink into, whilst you enjoy views of the moors. There is also a small dining area in the lounge. The kitchen is conveniently compact and well-equipped to whip up some meals for everyone. There is also one stunning king-size bedroom adjacent to an en-suite bathroom with a stylish freestanding bath, shower cubicle and WC. The luxurious bedroom will definitely provide guests with a restful night’s sleep. Outside, there is a large garden set to lawn and a stone patio for those al fresco meals on warmer evenings. Please note the garden isn't directly accessed from the property.

This property invites its guests to immerse themselves in the picturesque North Yorkshire countryside with far-reaching views in all directions and small villages and towns with a range of eateries nearby. Seek out the stunning Farndale Daffodil Walk (2.5 miles away), famous in spring for its bright, sunshine-coloured carpet.

This gorgeous cottage is set in a pretty little hamlet, Church Houses, deep in the heart of the North York Moors National Park. This particular dale is famed for its daffodil walk when each spring the river banks come alive with the yellow flowers, said to be planted originally by the monks who settled on this land many hundreds of years ago.

Lesser known than its Yorkshire cousin the Dales, the North York Moors are literally on your doorstep. This glorious expanse of heather-clad countryside is simply stunning, and it's well worth taking some time to explore it properly. The Moors cover an area of almost 600 square miles and like the Dales you can easily find yourself miles from anywhere relatively quickly. But there is something distinctly more civilised and less remote about the Moors. There is a sense of wilderness, particularly on top of the high central moorlands, but its cast in comforting soft focus.

This is serious walking country, so if you enjoy donning the old walking boots and striking out into the countryside this cottage has the perfect location. No need to get in the car at all, there are some truly breathtaking walking trails from the door. And of course, the same is true for cycling. There are also countless picture-card villages to explore within a few miles including the chocolate box villages and attractions of Hutton-le-Hole (7.5 miles), Rosedale Abbey (5.5 Miles), Danby and Goathland to name just a few.

 

Close by you also have the fantastic town of Helmsley (16.5 miles). At the heart of the town square is a statue of Lord Feversham, a distant ancestor of the current lord who resides in Duncombe Park. This stunning baroque mansion sits on the outskirts of town and is a good choice for an afternoon's sightseeing. If you want to indulge some more architectural desires, the equally grand Nunnington Hall a few miles south east of the town is another grand abode worth a peek. Helmsley is also a foodie’s heaven, packed with exquisite tea-rooms, cafes and organic delis. It's also surrounded by some of the best gastro pubs in the UK. alongside these culinary delights are lots of unique shops, galleries and antique dealers, easily enough to build up an appetite for lunch.

The cottage is in an idyllic location & we were pleased on instant arrival. The cottage was extremely dark n the kitchen with quite a few flies due to the estates bins been directly outside. There was no back door to the garden so pup could not stretch her legs while we unpacked in safety (only to the front entrance which was access to the car parkRead more) and we could not just open the doors to sit outside with a cuppa or glass of wine. The kitchen windows do not open so no ventilation while cooking! Hide

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.
