Snug and inviting, this pretty retreat is well-suited for couples or small families wishing to spend some time away from it all in a picturesque rural location on the edge of the North York Moors.

This cosy terraced-cottage in the delightful village of Osmotherley is an ideal property for a couple or small family. Situated on the eastern edge of the North York Moors National Park and within 25 miles of the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west, there is a wealth of stunning countryside to explore nearby. Whether you want heather-clad moorland, rolling green hills, dramatic waterfalls or ancient woodland, this area has it all. You can explore on foot or by bike with plenty of trails and routes to suit all abilities. With a plethora of flora and fauna to discover, ensure you always have your spotters’ guides, binoculars and camera to hand. Historians will also be kept busy with lots of historical buildings and places of interest nearby. The Cleveland Way National Trail passes through the village, whilst Wainwright’s Coast-to-Coast passes close by, so it’s no wonder that the village has shops, pubs and a takeaway to choose from, which is great when you don’t feel like cooking after an exhausting day out and about.

 

Snug and inviting, this delightful cottage is nestled into a traditional terrace on a quiet lane in the village. It has been tastefully decorated to create a contemporary, yet sympathetic, feel throughout, with neutral walls accentuating the warm wooden tones of the original beams and classic furniture.

 

As you step in through the front door, hang up your coats and shake off your muddy boots, you’ll find yourself in the small, cosy lounge/diner. The wood burner is the focal point of the room, adding a sense of comfort and the sofas offer the perfect place to snuggle up of an evening. There is also a TV above the fireplace if you want to catch up with your favourite programme or watch a film. The dining table in the corner offers a lovely setting for a romantic dinner for two. Adjacent to the lounge/diner is the stylish, tiled shower room, which has been finished to a high standard. Further down the hallway is the kitchen, which is well-equipped with all the mod-cons needed to whip up a tasty meal and a washer dryer

 

Ascending the narrow staircase, you will come to the bedrooms. There is one super king-size (which can be made up as a twin on request) and one single with an additional pull-out bed. The king-size room has useful, original built-in wardrobes and the single room has a dressing room. Both bedrooms have been beautifully decorated in neutral tones to create a restful atmosphere.

 

Hot Tub - will be available for new bookings from 9th July 2021 onwards. Photos coming soon.

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

The vibrant little village of Osmotherley is well-known as a starting point for walkers and cyclists. This gorgeous little place is real picture-postcard stuff. It also offers excellent facilities including a cafe, village stores and a fish and chip shop. If you're a bit of a foodie, this part of Yorkshire is packed with fantastic gastropubs, restaurants and delis.

Situated within the western reaches of the North York Moors, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the village has close proximity to lush pastures and woodlands. The western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market town and the views from here are simply stunning, and there are walks and cycle routes in every direction. You very close to the famous Cleveland Way as well as many more well-known and picturesque moorland walks, some of which lead all the way to the sea.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley (26 miles) is within easy driving distance and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering, you'll find the Verbena Spa here; perfect for a little me time indulgence.

The attractive village of Great Ayton is 13.5 miles away and has a wonderful village vibe. With a selection of pubs, restaurants, cafes and tearooms, you could eat out every night if you wanted to. As home to a young Captain Cook, there is also the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum which allows you to explore his early life in the surrounding area. If you love to walk, from Great Ayton you can walk up to Roseberry Topping (2.5 miles); a prominent hill with lots of walking trails that lead up to the distinctive summit and cliffs.

Isla Cottage is a perfect home from home. From the minute we arrived we felt at home and ready to enjoy our holiday. Location is perfect for exploring Yorkshire and to return at the end of a busy day to a warm and cosy cottage was the icing on the cake!

A great little cottage, quiet location. Perfect for the two of us and a doggie but for a family of four I think would struggle with the size of the social areas. Double bed very comfortable & lovely big bath towels.

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.
