This stylish property provides the perfect base for couples and families to explore Yorkshire, ideally positioned between The Dales and North York Moors.

Escape to the stunning Yorkshire countryside and embrace a slower pace of life, setting your sights on this elegant property as your comfortable base for your party of eight. Spend your days navigating the glorious rolling hills and windswept wilderness of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, returning to break bread and sip crisp ales in the village pub that’s set directly behind your accommodation. If food is your passion, then you’ll be spoilt for choice for local ingredients, handcrafted produce and artisan fare nearby such as fresh milk sourced from the cows that graze in the fields that surround you. The friendly owners have even provided a welcome pack to kick-start your stay, so you’ll certainly find something to tempt your tastebuds amongst your spoils.

Step through the charming exterior to discover a delightful space that provides warmth, relaxation and homeliness in abundance, whether you are socialising around the dining table or retreating outdoors for a BBQ feast. Blend the indoors with the outdoors in the lounge, throwing open the bifold doors on balmy evenings and snuggling up on the sofas to watch TV. For those who wanted to use the tranquillity as a chance to catch up on some work, you’ll find a handy office for checking your emails at leisure. There’s also a downstairs WC for your convenience.

Large doors lead through the kitchen/diner, a masterpiece of contemporary design complete with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and TV to serve all your culinary and entertainment needs. Cook up a storm or dish up a tasty takeaway, gathering around the table for cheerful mealtimes followed by board games and idle chatter over a nightcap or two. Should you wish to dine alfresco, the patio has lavish garden furniture and ample space to throw down a picnic rug on the vast expanse of lawn. Round off your day with a soak in your private hot tub, matching the bubbles with your very own glass of something fizzing and delicious.

Weary boned and in need of some well-earned rest, venture up the stairs to choose from four gorgeous bedrooms and an exquisite family bathroom that features a large bath and a separate shower. Each bedroom is equipped with a TV for an additional treat, and one of the pretty twin rooms has the added bonus of an en-suite shower room. The remaining twin bedroom and the sophisticated double are equally as inviting, but you are guaranteed to be impressed by the splendid king-size bedroom on the third floor that has access to a separate WC.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Nestled in the quintessential village of Pickhill with its spectacular countryside views and chocolate-box charm, your property is just 8 miles from Thirsk. A market town brimming with potential, you’ll soon be discovering Herriot Country with the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors as your playground. Stroll through the cobbled market square and admire the beautiful architecture of the historic buildings and sampling some delicious local delights such as Yorkshire curd tarts in a welcoming coffee house, or more exotic fare in one of the many restaurants.

A 10-mile drive will bring you into Ripon, a vibrant cathedral city that boasts a Thursday market, numerous coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and a nice collection of independent shops to explore. The cathedral is smaller than its close neighbour, York Minster, but is still an awe-inspiring sight. In addition, every night for at least 450 years the Ripon Hornblower has sounded the curfew at 9pm from all four sides of the obelisk in the marketplace, come rain or shine, followed by a 15-minute history of the ceremony and the city – an experience not to be missed! If you are partial to a flutter, Ripon Race Ground has around 15 meets from April to early September. Known as Yorkshires Garden Racecourse it has a distinct atmosphere harking back to a bygone era – traditional tearooms and bandstands sit alongside the champagne bar.

This area of Yorkshire has enough historic sites to keep you busy for a week with Ripley Castle (17.5 miles), Newby Hall (13.5 miles) and Norton Conyers (7.5 miles) all nearby. Visit lovely Fountains Abbey and the gorgeous Studley Royal Water Garden, 13.5 miles away – this World Heritage site is deservedly one of the National Trusts most visited locations. As well as the spectacular ruins of a 12th-century Cistercian abbey, the grounds are home to an Elizabethan Mansion, a medieval deer park and some of the most romantic vistas in the country.

Harrogate (21.5 miles) is an absolute must-visit if youre staying here. Encircled by its famous Stray, or 200 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, cinemas, parks and gardens you could ever wish for.

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.
