A beautiful cottage in a great location. Parking was never a problem right outside the door and we had two cars. The property had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The only downside is the garden is not maintained and was just overgrown which is a shame. We would definitely stay again and had a lovely weeks holiday.

We really enjoyed staying in Lauras cottage. Its really close to the town and we found lots of things to do in the area - walking from the your doorstep, visiting Whitby and across to the dales. The people were friendly and welcoming. The local pubs were good for a meal, brewery for a drink and the delis for lunches. We hadnt been to the area beforRead moree but would definitely like to come back again to explore more! Hide

We have just returned from a week's stay in this lovely cottage,relaxed and refreshed. It is deceptively large and very well equipped. We loved it's position close to the centre of beautiful Helmsley, which has so many excellent foodie places and beautiful pubs. So much attention to detail in the house- wood for the fire, a beautiful basket of goodRead moreies to welcome us and fluffy white towels! Our first meet up with loved ones under one roof and this was a perfect place! Hide

Beautiful cottage just a few minutes walk away to shops, cafes, pubs etc and a stones throw from the picturesque Duncombe park. The cottage had everything you needed, very clean, comfortable and cosy. Lots to see and do in the surrounding areas. A fab break after being in lockdown for 6 months.

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.
