This holiday home is in a great location set at the Northern Tip of the Yorkshire Dales. Surrounded by the picturesque and peaceful village of Melsonby, it's a lovely little spot for a holiday. Nestled around a cobbled courtyard looking out over the village green, it’s 17 miles across to Reeth, 12 into the stunning landscapes of Swaledale or 22 miles to scenic Arkengarthdale, and 50 miles down the A1 to the city of York, so makes an ideal basecamp from which to strike out and discover these unique Yorkshire locations. It’s well-placed for discovering the beauty of the North Pennines and visiting a range of quaint villages and bustling Yorkshire towns.

There's a good pub in the centre of the village and if you're a bit of a foodie there are several excellent dining pubs in the area and an award-winning deli. If you feel like a little pampering, there’s a spa in the centre of Melsonby that you could stop by.

It's also the perfect location if you enjoy exploring on two feet. There are lots of beautiful routes nearby and Gilling West (2 miles) is well-known as a great starting point for walking - seasoned ramblers come from miles around to set off from the village.

The cottage is 6 miles away from Richmond, a historic market town with much to offer the discerning holiday-maker. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. A drive through Richmond takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales (20 miles). Head up towards Reeth and on towards Hawes (30 miles) in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside. Stop at a delightful tearoom or pub for lunch before heading back to the comfort of your large luxury Yorkshire cottage.

West of this property is the charming town of Barnard Castle (14 miles). Recently listed as one of the top 10 places to live in the UK, it's a pretty little spot with a host of shops, cafes and pubs to explore. The excellent Bowes Museum is here and is well worth a visit if you enjoy art, fashion and design. And as the name would suggest, there's a historic castle to explore too.

Further south, you'll find the pretty market town of Northallerton (20 miles) where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street and, in the centre, there are delis, restaurants, boutiques and a department store.

This property is personally managed by Rupert.

Great holiday home, comfortable and relaxing with a high quality finish. I felt at home from the moment I walked through the door with a real cosy feel to it. A lovely little hamper was waiting for us which was a really nice touch.

We had a fantastic time staying in this lovely cottage. A good location (not too remote but equally not too busy!) for travelling around Yorkshire. We visited Richmond for a day and travelled to nearby villages to visit English Heritage sites including Middleham Castle. Harrogate was less than an hours drive away and we had a lovely lunch at BettysRead more tea rooms. Road outside the property can be a little noisy first thing in the morning but it wouldnt put me off visiting again! 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.
