Grade II listed stunning farmhouse set in the heart of the of the Yorkshire Dales National Park surrounded on all sides by breathtaking scenery, charming villages and traditional market towns.

Take a look inside this stunning Grade II listed Yorkshire farmhouse dating back to the 16th century. This beautiful building is set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, surrounded on all sides by breathtaking Dales scenery. With generous accommodation including a snug and three bedrooms each with their own private bathroom, this is a grand and gorgeous rural retreat in one of the UK's most picturesque landscapes.

Nestling in the lush green pastures of Coverdale in a private and secluded position, this handsome period building has its origins in the 1500s. With bags of character inside and out, this beautiful cottage is one of the most unique and special holiday homes in Yorkshire. Step inside to discover a house full of period charm, with all of life's modern comforts thrown in. Sturdy Yorkshire flagstone floors, exposed beams and stone walls combine with elegant furniture and style to create a comfortable welcoming home.

As you enter, you'll find a large boot room/utility and WC, handy for storing those muddy boots after a day's walking in the Dales. The ground floor is also home to the living room, snug, kitchen and dining space. The living room is a spacious room with exposed beams and a roaring open fire set within an inglenook fireplace. Two period windows and original window shutters add to the period appeal. It's a comfortable and warm room, the perfect place for settling in by the fire and having a good old catch up.

In addition to the living room is a separate snug, great if the kids want to escape from the adults for a while (or vice-versa!). The snug comes complete with a wood burner, TV and DVD player. A cosy space to enjoy a family movie.

The kitchen continues the traditional look with a stunning old heavy beam resting above the electric AGA. All the usual mod cons are provided including a combination microwave oven, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. A granite kitchen island and bar stools provide a nice spot for a pre-dinner glass of bubbly. The dining room is separated from the kitchen by original open stone shelving creating an interesting and atmospheric place to dine. Light some candles and enjoy an evening banquet of fresh Yorkshire produce in this gorgeous room.

All of the bedrooms are on the first floor and each one enjoys access to its own private bathroom. The master bedroom boasts a lovely exposed stone wall and a super king-sized bed. The en-suite shower for this room is accessed via a small flight of stairs in the same room.

The remaining bedrooms have super king-size beds which can also be configured as two singles if preferred. Both of their en-suite bathrooms are right next door and feature a bath to sink into each evening.

There is much to enjoy outside this exquisite holiday home too. Extensive grounds include a huge enclosed lawned garden, perfect for summer picnics, and a pretty sheltered patio by the house. Enjoy a long lazy lunch alfresco with the sights and sounds of nature all around you. The views from the gardens are amazing and offer the perfect place to spot local Yorkshire wildlife. Everything from pheasants to wild deer are likely to make an appearance.

This property is set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park near the hamlet of Horsehouse in beautiful Coverdale. Tucked away down a private track, it's the perfect place to escape and immerse yourself in some of the most stunning scenery in the UK. Walkers will be in heaven here, with so many routes available from the doorstep. And there's a pub just 500 yards from the house across a path and footbridge for that post-walk pint.

 

This cottage is located on the road from Middleham village in Wensleydale to Kettlewell in Wharfedale. Middleham is one of Yorkshire's loveliest villages. Famous for its castle (once home to Richard III) it's also home to a lovely collection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops.

 

There are charming tearooms if you fancy a treat at elevenses and there's also a village store and a couple of bric-a-brac shops to mooch around. Just 6 miles out of the village is the fantastic attraction, The Forbidden Corner.

 

Just a little further on you'll find the charming market town of Leyburn. Leyburn is an archetypical slice of Dales market town life. You'll find traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gathered around the handsome town square, which hosts a busy market every Friday. Leyburn is also home to the biggest auction centre outside of London if you fancy picking up a bargain. The nearby historic town of Richmond is similar in many ways and has a lovely setting along the River Swale.

 

There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights within the local area. Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle are less than 12 miles away, so lots of choice for things to do if you want to get out and about. When you need to refuel, stop at one of the areas many excellent gastropubs.

A stunning property - we have visited three times and will be back again. Beautiful location with break taking views, Hindlethwaite is absolutely perfect for families with children or dogs. I could spend all my time sitting in the garden with a glass of champagne just staring out at the hills and listening to the sheep.

Really well equipped and comfortable cottage, very clean, the housekeeper was helpful (the best one I have ever encountered.) I would recommend this cottage if you want a get away from it all experience, I think that a 4 wheel drive is essential for access to this property and this should be made clear before you decide to book.

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.
