Set in a stunning North Yorkshire dale, this breath-taking holiday home offers relaxing, light and spacious accommodation and is a fabulous setting for a large family or group of friends to celebrate.

"Perched on a hill above the peaceful hamlet of Low Mill in the North York Moors National Park, this stone cottage is the perfect place for family holidays/reunions. With its breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, you will find it easy to relax, soak up the tranquillity and enjoy quality time with loved ones. There are lots of walking and cycling trails to choose from on your doorstep, so you can get different perspectives on the varied and dramatic landscape within the National Park. And when you return to the house at the end of a busy day, you can choose where and how to recuperate, whether it be soaking in a bubble-filled roll-top bath or sinking into the comfy sofas in front of the wood burner. Market towns and picturesque villages are plentiful near here, so it’s easy to find a pub, cafe or tearoom to quench your thirst or satisfy your hunger.

 As you approach the cottage, you will appreciate how its stone exterior blends comfortably into the Yorkshire countryside, looking quaint, yet rugged. It is clearly steeped in history, as demonstrated by the many original features throughout the property, such as exposed stone walls, vaulted ceilings and exposed wooden beams. However, it has been lovingly renovated and restored to create a light, modern home with lots of space and mod-cons.

You enter the house through a stable door into a hall/utility room which offers a handy place to discard muddy boots and coats, leaving them to dry so they’re ready for the next day’s adventures. Adjacent to this room is the long, high-ceilinged kitchen/diner which has a stunning, stone feature-wall and tasteful, country cottage-style units. The contemporary lighting brings light and warmth to the room making it the perfect setting for cooking, eating and socialising.

The lounge is also light, bright and airy, with a continuation of the neutral tones creating a simple elegance. There are sofas to sink into, a wood burner to snuggle up in front of and a TV to entertain you. Also on the ground floor, you will find one of the bedrooms. It’s a delightful, king-size room with an en-suite bathroom that will take your breath away. The free-standing roll-top bath and the large shower cubicle in the centre of the room are beautifully complemented by the attractive panelling and tiled floor to create a feeling of luxury.

On the first floor, there are three further bedrooms: a double, a twin and a bunk bedroom. All of them are decorated with calming neutral tones to ensure everyone sleeps well. There is also a contemporary, family bathroom on this floor with a shower over the bath. All bedrooms and bathrooms offer views or glimpses of the rural setting.

Outside, there is a large, enclosed garden perfect for family games or the seating on the patio area provides somewhere to sit back and soak up the surroundings with a coffee or tipple of your choice. There is off-road parking for two cars."

The North York Moors has a landscape like no other; it's a place of heather-covered hills, ancient woodlands and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. If you want to get away from it all, take a trip to the top of the high central moorlands. The famous Blakey Ridge (4 miles) affords some of the best views in the country and, if walking is your thing, you are surrounded on all sides by some truly stunning routes.

The nearest significant town to Low Mill is the attractive Kirkbymoorside (6.5 miles), which has much to offer including a gallery, antique shops, tea rooms, deli, wine shop and butcher. There's also a great market on Wednesdays. From here, you can move on to the vibrant and attractive Yorkshire market towns of Pickering (13.5 miles) and Helmsley (12 miles), both of which have an abundance of good restaurants, tea rooms and independent shops. From Helmsley, you can also join the popular National Trail, the Cleveland Way, which skirts along the western and northern edge of the National Park before heading down the coast to Filey. Nearby Hutton-le-Hole (4 miles) is a pretty village where you can watch artisan craftsmen/women at the Craft Workshops, visit Ryedale Folk Museum or have a bite to eat in one of the several pubs and cafes.

The North Yorkshire Coast is also within easy reach. The gothic town of Whitby, associated with Dracula author, Bram Stoker, has a stunning, ancient abbey perched on the cliffs as well as small, winding streets to explore (27 miles) and is well worth a visit, as is the picture-postcard fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay (32 miles). Take a day trip to either of these places to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Yorkshire's coastline.

Location

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.
