Discover this luxurious Georgian manor in North Yorkshire, the perfect place to host families and friends for a special celebration while surrounded by the breathtaking Yorkshire countryside.

Discover this magnificent six-bedroom, five-bathroom Georgian manor house sitting at the heart of an award-winning village near Richmond. This beautiful 1730's listed house combines style, elegance and comfort to create the perfect large luxury holiday home. It's the ultimate choice for families and groups of friends looking for that special place to celebrate or catch up.

 

There is a grand appeal to the interiors, yet the classic contemporary styling has given it a contented and relaxed charm. Stepping into the entrance hall, with its heated stone flooring and beautiful staircase, you immediately sense that this is an historic country home with 21st century comforts.

 

Make your way along the hallway and into the heart of the home, a fabulous large kitchen perfect for cooking, entertaining and dining. With the AGA keeping it toasty warm and a huge marble covered kitchen island to gather around, it's the perfect spot for pre-dinner drinks each evening. Double doors lead to the formal dining room with its wonderful views out to the gardens and French doors onto the terrace. A room just waiting to be filled with the sound of laughter from diners stretching long into the night.

 

Continue on through another set of double doors to the beautifully appointed drawing room, full of period features including a stunning marble fireplace. French doors from the drawing room lead onto a handsome walled garden, croquet lawn and outdoor stone fireplace - perfect to gather around for an evening cocktail under the stars. The interlinking flow of the principal reception rooms makes this cottage a unique and outstanding home for families to come together on a grand scale.

 

Another luxurious addition to the lodge is the high-tech cinema room with a large high-definition screen with integrated surround sound. A log burner brings a cosy feel to the snug, making it perfect for younger guests to escape to whilst the parents unwind next door. There's a downstairs boot room and WC too.

 

All of the bedrooms are upstairs and set over two floors. The first is a breathtaking en-suite master bedroom with stunning views of the formal gardens and countryside beyond. Star of the show in the bathroom is a beautiful free-standing bath sitting in the centre of the room. There's also a double walk-in shower in here and a separate WC discreetly behind a hidden door.

 

The second bedroom is a delightful family room which includes a double bed and two singles. A further double bedroom sits next door and both rooms share a family bathroom. At the front of the house you'll find the fourth bedroom, a lovely double with views over the enclosed courtyard and an en-suite shower room and WC. There's also a dressing area in this room if you like a little more space. Next door to that is the fifth bedroom, another double enjoying its own bathroom with shower and WC.

 

The top floor features a generous room set in the eaves of the house which has two double beds and a fabulous luxurious bathroom with a feature free-standing bath and large walk-in shower. It's the sort of bathroom you just won't want to leave. The landing provides a quiet reading area with large picture skylight windows providing lovely views of the paddocks surrounding the house and the village beyond.

 

Matching the stunning interiors of this large luxury Yorkshire holiday home are the gorgeous gardens. Take a turn about the formal garden breathing in the scent of lavender on a warm summer evening. Release the children into the large lawned area where they can burn off steam, safe in the knowledge that they are enclosed and safe. Settle down to an al fresco lunch or dinner on the majestic stone terrace to the front of the house, with that gorgeous Georgian facade as your backdrop.

This holiday home has a great location, set at the northern tip of the Yorkshire Dales and 28 miles from Middlesborough, it's an ideal basecamp from which to strike out and discover these unique Yorkshire locations. Reeth (14 miles) and the stunning landscapes of Swaledale (7 miles) and Arkengarthdale (21 miles) are within easy reach.

The cottage is set in the heart of a very pretty village. If you're a bit of a foodie there are several excellent dining pubs in the area as well as a deli, tea room and farm shop. It's also the perfect location if you enjoy walking, there are lots of beautiful routes from the doorstep and its known as a great starting point for walking - seasoned ramblers come from miles around to set off from the village.

North of the village is the charming town of Barnard Castle (12 miles). The excellent Bowes Museum is here and is worth a visit and, as the name would suggest, there's a historic castle to explore too.

This stunning large luxury cottage is also just 4 miles away from Richmond, a historic market town with much to offer the discerning holidaymaker. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. Just a short drive through Richmond takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Head up towards Reeth (15 miles) and on towards Hawes (29 miles) in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside.

Further south, you'll find the pretty market town of Northallerton (20 miles) where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street.

To take in the North York Moors, travel 40 miles and brave it up Sutton Bank, the view from the top is said by some to be the finest in all of England but we doubt you’ll want to travel far when you can lounge at this beautiful property.

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.
