This cosy hideaway is full of character in a rural hamlet located on the outskirts of Thirsk. An ideal romantic retreat for couples whatever the occasion.

Set in an idyllic location, between Yorkshire’s dales and moors, this gorgeous cottage is made for two. It’s the ideal destination for a country drive or a muddy amble around the undulating landscape before a lazy afternoon with homecooked food in a sunny pub garden. The charms of the cathedral city of Ripon (7.5 miles), and the spa town of Harrogate (18.5 miles) are also in reach for day trips. Stay in this former coaching house and enjoy the privacy and tranquillity of this rural setting with country walks from your doorstep. The cottage lies in the heart of Herriot country with the former home of the renowned vet and author James Herriot just 5 miles away in the pretty village Thirsk; you’ll recognise scenes from the TV adaption of Herriot’s books throughout the area. On-site, you’ll find off-road parking and convenient bike storage, plus a shop for essentials and a pub nearby (2 miles).

Store hiking boots and shoes in the hallway, and step inside this charming detached property where you’re greeted with a welcome pack and country-style interiors with muted tones and cheery pops of colour. Snuggle up on cosy seating in the open-plan living area and you’ll soon feel toasty after your walk with the warmth from the wood burner. The owners have thought of all your needs here, with ample storage, shelving, and beautiful furnishings throughout the property. Create delicious meals together in the well-equipped kitchen and dining area – the table seats four if you have visitors. Curl up with a good book or choose a DVD and enjoy popcorn and film nights on the TV. Head upstairs to find your spacious king-size bedroom with a stylish en-suite bathroom featuring wood-panelled walls, storage cupboards, and two areas of vanity to indulge in – the main bathroom area has a large bathtub made for long bubbly soaks, and there is also a sleek and stylish shower room area. You’ll also find a convenient WC on the ground floor.

Treat your loved one to breakfast in bed before venturing out for the day; or enjoy morning coffees on the patio while your canine companion sniffs the fresh country air in this beautiful setting.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
