Traditional Yorkshire cottage set in the Heart of the Yorkshire Dales is the perfect escape for the family.

This stunning stone-built cottage is in a favoured location in between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Though set in a peaceful position, you’re just 160 metres from the local pub and a further 100 metres from the local shop and post office, so you’ll never be without a pint of milk or something to do in the evening. With ample space for up to eight guests, this holiday home is bursting with period character and enjoys breathtaking views from all the upstairs bedrooms, reminding you of your enviable position within this stunning countryside.

Step into the entrance hallway and feel the warm welcome of this rustic property. There’s a handy WC at the back of the hallway, while the lounge is immediately on your right. Superb oak floors, a magnificent 16th-century local Helwith Bridge slate heath, and fireplace with an AGA wood burner and beautiful wood beams make this a wonderful space to relax in after a long day out exploring. Sit on the cushioned window seats in the day so you can gaze out across the Dales, or snuggle up on the sofa in the evening in front of the TV. Head through the secret door at the back of the lounge to the quirky twin bedroom that kids will love as their little hideaway to escape from the grown-ups.

Follow the local slate flagged floor from the dining room through to a contemporary kitchen with glossy whites and chrome appliances adding style to this fresh room. Cook up a storm and serve through the hatch into the dining room, where a rustic dining table is perfect for eight. Soothing neutral tones blended with earthy hues make it a great social space to spend hours in; take some boardgames from the lounge and play at the table or retire to the sofas around the electric fire. You’ll find a utility room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and a sink to clean muddy clothes after a day out hiking; this space is also the perfect bedroom for any four-legged friends that have joined you.

Upstairs off the hallway with quirky carpet, each bedroom has its own unique style. The main super-king-size bedroom is a fashionista’s delight since it has a walk-in wardrobe; calming neutrals blended with yellow and grey tones make for a tranquil night’s sleep, and the clean and shiny en-suite shower room is ideal for missing the bathroom queue in the morning.

The super-king-size zip-and-link room harnesses cosy blues and whites with a dreamy cushioned window seat for ultimate views, while two unique twin bedrooms with fresh and bright decor also have fantastic views of the countryside across the Dales and the Forest of Bowland. Take a relaxing soak in the traditional bathroom before heading off to dreamland.

The countryside charm continues outside; the patio is ideal for al fresco dining and is surrounded by beautiful shrubs, while the large lawn is perfect for children and dogs to play on. Sizzle up a BBQ out here in the summer months and have your own private garden party. Take a wander around the garden to find all the little nooks and crannies with unusual flowers and plants.

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.
