This adorable cottage is a super-cosy one-bedroom bijou retreat tucked away in a very pretty village in the North York Moors. With one of Yorkshire's finest gastro pubs just a stone's throw away, it's the perfect couples escape. Enjoy an evening sundowner on the decked balcony deciding on which great local restaurant to try out first. A real chocolate box holiday cottage, it is perfectly proportioned for two guests. Set within the grounds of a beautiful country farm house it offers total peace and tranquillity within the comforts of Yorkshire village life.

 

The main living space is all open plan, and with high ceilings and wonderful patio doors it gives the cottage a bright and comfortable feel. The kitchen provides everything you need to cook including a ceramic hob, oven and microwave. There's also a fridge with an icebox - essential for those afternoons, relaxing in the garden with a cool drink. And if you need it, you also have access to a washing machine, dryer and larger freezer in a separate building beside the cottage. Guests will arrive to a yummy welcome hamper of essentials with a few treats thrown in, and some home-brewed sloe gin too for that afternoon tipple.

 

There is comfortable and stylish sofa to sink into each evening, the perfect place to curl up and watch a movie on the TV/DVD. Wi-Fi is also provided if you want to catch up online. The dining table is set by the patio doors affording a gorgeous view of the gardens and North York Moors countryside beyond. Throw open the doors and enjoy lunch to the lovely sound of birdsong all around. And when it's time for bed you can look forward to a king-size bed dressed in crisp white cotton bedding. This bed can also be set up as two singles if required. The generous bedroom is again bright and elegant in style and has the benefit of an en-suite shower room. Luxurious bath robes are provided too so you can lounge about in complete comfort! The perfect way to end your day's sightseeing in Yorkshire.

Situated in the picturesque village of Crayke less than 14 miles north of York. History scholars believe the village to be the spot where the Grand Old Duke of York Marched his Men to the Top of Hill, the village commands wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. There's a lovely circular walk which takes in all the joys of the surrounding area.

The village is a charming little place, very typical of those found in this area of Yorkshire. Perfectly positioned to visit the very best of North Yorkshire, the cottage sits in an area called the Howardian Hills. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, this land of lush pastures and woodlands plays host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns. There is also a great selection of fine dining establishments in and around Crayke that are well worth booking a table at during your holiday.

If walking is your thing there are lots of beautiful walks in the area, some right from the doorstep. And if you fancy some serious hiking the North York Moors landscape offers some of the best walking in the country. Take a trip up to the top of the high moorlands around Blakey Ridge and breathe in that clear Yorkshire air.

I have knocked off a star for comfort, simply because the sofa was rather low and too soft - my back suffered! Otherwise the place was faultless. The bed was extremely comfortable. The Cottage is very small but extremely well equipped. The very generous welcome pack was terrific (specially the sloe gin!) Thank you very much.

The only improvement I would suggest is that there should be some way of switching on the towel rail, which came on and off erratically during our stay. No other way of drying/ heating the shower room and towels. Otherwise this is a good cottage for two and has all you need. Fair value, and a nice scenic area off the Yorkshire tourist trail. The weRead morelcome basket was a nice touch. There was always hot water available. Hide

A lovely base for a holiday near York, within easy reach of shops, park and ride into York, restaurants, petrol station, cinema, bowling etc. The property is very clean/tidy and comfortable, with everything you could need for a self catering break. The owner is lovely, very welcoming and easy to find or get hold of if any questions.

Small but very well equipped cottage. The welcome basket was very generous and the owner Lesley was a lovely lady. We got great weather so the balcony overlooking the beautiful garden was a real bonus. Location was perfect, no more than 20 minutes travel to York, Helmsley, Ripon, castle Howard and lots more.

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.
