Discover this delightful stone cottage located in the tranquil village of Hutton Magna surrounded by open countryside offering a haven for guests looking to uncover the beauty of Yorkshire's rural landscape.

Welcome to this charming two-bedroom stone cottage set in a pretty little village between the historic market towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle. Its chocolate-box exterior leads to an immaculate cosy interior, just perfect for couples and families alike. And those who enjoy walking or cycling can do so from the doorstep. You can also enjoy gorgeous views of the peaceful countryside setting too.

Step inside to find an open-plan living space home to the living room and dining area. At the heart of the room is a wood burner, ready and waiting for you each evening after a day's walking or sightseeing. Light the fire and settle down on one of two comfy sofas: it's time to relax. For your evening entertainment you'll find a Freeview TV with DVD Player and a good selection of DVDs. Wi-Fi is provided as well as a choice of games and books for offline fun.

This room leads into the kitchen at the rear of the cottage. Featuring pale grey shaker-style units you'll find everything you'll need to rustle up dinner. All the normal mod cons are provided including a dishwasher, fridge with ice-box and a washing machine, essential if you have children running about in muddy fields! There is also a downstairs toilet and washroom.

One of the things we love about this cottage is the serving hatch from the kitchen through into the living room. It's one of those little quirky touches that give the cottage its cosy appeal.

The dining table sits in the main living area, a lovely spot for eating whatever the time of day and there's plenty of room for up to four people. Pick up your ingredients at the award-winning farm shop and deli, around 3.5 miles away, and settle down to a feast of Yorkshire's finest produce.

There are two bedrooms in this pretty cottage, the first of which can be found downstairs. This sweet twin room comes complete with two full size single beds. Make your way upstairs to find the beautiful master bedroom boasting a king-size bed. Double aspect windows here afford stunning countryside views of rolling fields to the east and across the village church to distant fells to the west.

The family bathroom is also upstairs and sits opposite the master bedroom. There's a fabulous free-standing bath to sink into each evening, and a walk-in shower for the morning.

Outside the cottage you'll find a compact lawned garden to the front surrounded by a stone wall. To the rear is a decked area with a bistro table and chairs which looks out across the fields; the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee with the sun on your face.

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

This property is set in the picturesque and peaceful village of Hutton Magna surrounded by open countryside. It is a relaxing and calming spot to hide away or explore by walking, cycling or driving. Situated in a great location set at the northern tip of the Yorkshire Dales, between the historic market towns of Barnard Castle (7 miles) and Richmond (10 miles). There are also several walking and cycling routes nearby so there’s no need to jump in the car.

Barnard Castle is a historic market town taking its name from the castle around which it grew. Featured in the Guardian's 10 of the UK's best small towns in 2016, it hosts the Bowes Museum (6 miles), nearby Eggleston Gardens, just over 12 miles away, and a host of shops selling antiques, designer clothes, jewellery, accessories, vintage and retro items and local crafts.

Richmond sits on the River Swale with impressive waterfalls just a few hundred metres from the cobbled town square. It is home to the famous Station (food, film and art under one roof), the Georgian Theatre as well as Richmond Castle. From Richmond, head up towards Reeth and on towards Hawes in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside. Stop for lunch before heading back to the comfort of your luxury Yorkshire cottage.

The possibilities for walking and cycling from this cottage are endless with a good selection of maps and route suggestions provided by the owners, themselves keen walkers. From the front door, you can follow scenic footpaths to explore local villages and pubs around the Rivers Tees and Greta or catch a clear night for some amazing stargazing. Drive for approximately 20 miles to explore Swaledale and Teesdale, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Teesdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty including the Pennine Way and High Force, the largest waterfall in England.

The country roads surrounding the property are popular with cyclists: National Cycle Network route 165 passes within one mile of the village.

Within 50 miles are the Yorkshire coast and the historic cathedral cities of York and Durham (38 miles). Further south, you'll find the pretty market town of Northallerton, 25 miles, where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street. There are some wonderful tearooms here as well as a fantastic local deli, and of course the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers.

To take in the North York Moors head further south still and brave it up Sutton Bank, the view from the top said by some to be the finest in all of England. The gorgeous market town of Helmsley makes for the perfect pit-stop.

Cannot fault this cottage one bit. It has been really well thought out and the the fixtures and fittings are all good quality and impeccably clean. Has the feel of luxury. The village is tiny and there are no facilities (shops/pubs etc) which we were prepared for and we were totally happy with as we had the beautiful walls on the doorstep. Hosts weRead morere friendly and helpful before arrival with some additional questions we had. Some wonderful weekend memories. Thank you Hide

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.
