An exquisite country retreat in the heart of Yorkshire moorland, this property manages to embrace its authentic charm and character without detracting from the quality and luxury provided within.

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.

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 was immaculate and stunning. It was nestled in a tiny hamlet that had a friendly pub and the daffy cafe a short walk away. It was perfect for our holiday as it was set in beautiful surroundings and there were lots of walks from the door.

This was almost the perfect cottage for us (a couple and one dog).the house and location were fabulous, the only downside for us was the garden access.Having to go through the next doors garden even though it is just through the gate felt a little intrusive for them if they were sitting out ,and could cause a problem if they also (as ours did )haveRead more a dog .It seems a shame that the gate between the coach house and other neighbouring house had not been incorporated into the coach house garden then all properties would have their own garden acccess even if it was not straight out of the door. Having said that , we had a great time . The cottage was the best one we have stayed in to date . Spotlessly clean and with everything you need . There are no shops in the hamlet but that was not a problem . We had an Asda delivery the night we arrived with the basics , but the Feversham arms ( at the bottom of the garden) serve lovely food but beware !!!! the portions are huge , but delicious and the fact they are so busy proves that . However there was never any late night noise from customers ! Lots of good walks around the area from church houses and plenty of small villages and towns to visit . We will be returning even if it's just for that massive bathroom ? Hide

We found our cottage to be one of the best we have been in.The scenery is fantastic and the local pub is good.Our only downside is that the bed is too firm and we had backache every morning.In all a great week, very relaxing and lucky with the weather.

Completely impractical for a holiday with dogs. No gate on stairs and enable to keep doors open in hot weather due to garden access. Real shame as the cottage and location is beautiful. Not the holiday we'd hoped for which is disappointing as it's our main holiday this year.

Response from Gorgeous Cottages:

Hi Alison, thank you for your review, your comments have been passed on to the owner who appreciates your constructive feedback. Due to the design of the building and it being listed, better access to the garden won't be possible and neither will the option to put a wood burner (shame). The owner is addressing the issue of cooking utensils. We do hope that you will visit again soon. Take care, Maureen 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.
