Tucked away on the owners' working farm, this cosy cottage provides the ideal base for a couple to explore all that this stunning part of Yorkshire has to offer.

Retreat to this inviting Yorkshire cottage for two, which sits on a working farm, just 1.5 miles from the village of Stamford Bridge, known for its famous battle of 1066. Sleeping just two guests, the delightful, one-bedroom abode is perfect for a couple seeking a romantic break together or simply time away from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Set approximately 3.5 miles from the edge of the spectacular Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the handsome, single-storey farm conversion is in an ideal location for those who enjoy walking, cycling and spending time in the great outdoors.

Plan walks and rides from the front door of the cottage. Try the 3-mile Stamford Bridge and the River Derwent Circular, for example, or the 10-mile, circular route, which takes you along the top of a viaduct. Venture further from home and drive out into the scenic York Moors National Park for the day. This begins about 23 miles away and offers a great choice of footpaths and cycle routes through all kinds of landscapes.

Wander into this welcoming holiday property to discover an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner that will quickly become the heart of the home while you are here. Take it easy in here after your exciting days out, find a film to enjoy together on the Smart TV and make plans for the following day. Prepare a tasty dinner for two in the kitchen area on those nights you feel like staying in, then dine together at the breakfast bar.

Have a hot shower in the en-suite shower room before heading off to bed. Lay your heads in the comfortable, double bedroom and open the double doors in here on warm mornings to let in a summer breeze. Decide whether to have a lazy morning watching TV in bed or to take a fresh cup of coffee out into the sunshine.

Make the most of your private, enclosed patio whenever the weather is fine. BBQ your supper out here on warm summer evenings or take a stroll around the gorgeous, shared gardens within the grounds. There’s plenty of parking at this cottage and you can store your bikes securely.

Find plenty of historical sights, beauty spots and attractions to visit within easy reach of the property. Gardening enthusiasts will love Breezy Knees Garden, about 3 miles away, where you can wander the different areas of the 20-acre grounds and enjoy around 7,000 varieties of colourful plants.

Those interested in military history might like to while away an afternoon at the Yorkshire Air Museum, which is 7 miles away, while guests who enjoy visiting country houses and stately homes might wish to plan a trip to the National Trust’s Beningbrough Hall, 16 miles from the barn, an Italianate property in 8 acres of beautiful grounds. It might also be worth planning a day trip to the coast. Drive to Bridlington, just under 30 miles away, to go to the beach and perhaps have fish and chips on the seafront.

In superb proximity to this holiday home, York is a fabulous place to explore. This ancient walled city has been the north’s spiritual capital for 2,000 years, but that’s not to say it is stuck in the past; York’s affluent population and its influx of tourist pounds has helped to create a cultural and commercial oasis. History seeps out of every cobbled street, but the crooked old buildings house a fantastic range of contemporary designer shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Everywhere in York is easily reachable by foot as this small but perfectly formed city houses most of its main attractions within the city walls. Middle Ages’ town planning means it can take quite some time to get your bearings but finding your way around the labyrinth of warped streets is part of the fun. Make sure you take in York Minster, the Shambles, the Railway Museum and Bettys tearoom whilst you're there.

If you are looking for outside space in which to relax, you have the choice of a number of parks and gardens, including Dean’s Park next to the Minster, the Yorkshire Museum Gardens next to the River Ouse and, slightly further afield, Rowntree Park with its children’s playground, tennis courts and bowling green.

And, what’s more, it really is a year-round location. Summer days can be spent lounging in one of the gorgeous parks and, in the autumn, York comes alive with shop windows sparkling in the dusky light. Its central location also makes a great base from which to explore the rest of glorious Yorkshire, with the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and Yorkshire coastline all within easy reach for beautiful walks and adventurous days out.

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.
