Tucked away in the tranquil East Yorkshire village of Sancton, this quaint cottage is just around the corner from a renowned and friendly pub serving a range of delicious home-cooked food. Keen walkers and cyclists will be spoilt for choice with an abundance of beautiful walks, nature trails and bike tracks nearby, with the stunning Wolds Way within easy reach. The cheerful town of Market Weighton (2 miles) and the historic market town of Beverley (12 miles) have a choice of great places to eat and drink. Spend a day exploring the cobbled streets, city walls, chic boutiques and historic sites of the ancient city of York (22 miles). Or head to the stunning coastline of Yorkshire, with its beautiful beaches and impressive cliffs (18 miles).

Dating back to the early 19th century, the property retains plenty of original features including quarry tile floors, wooden beams and Yorkshire sash windows. Leave your boots and coats in the entrance hall after a wonderful day exploring the Yorkshire countryside, and head through into the pretty lounge. Tastefully furnished, the cosy lounge boasts a charming fireplace and a comfortable sofa, the perfect spot to curl up, chat into the night, catch up with a good book or watch a movie on the Smart TV. With its rustic-style units, Belfast sink and farmhouse dining table, the light, welcoming and beautifully designed kitchen/diner makes a fantastic space for cooking and sharing all your favourite family meals and is fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and a washing machine. When it’s time for bed, head up the stairs to the first floor where you will find a choice of two airy, attractive and peaceful bedrooms, decorated in delicate pastel shades. The first is a delightful double room with plenty of storage and a feature fireplace, and the second is a cheery single. The cottage also features a refreshing bathroom with a bath and hand held shower.

Heading outside, this lovely cottage has a pretty back garden which is fully enclosed. Relaxing at the table on the patio, you can enjoy a morning coffee as you get ready for the day ahead, or sip an evening tipple at the end of a fabulous day out.

The cheerful town of Market Weighton (2 miles) was once the site of Britain’s biggest sheep market, is the birthplace of Britain’s tallest man, and makes a fabulous base for exploring the countryside of East Yorkshire. Nearby, the market town of Beverley (12 miles) is one of Yorkshire’s best-kept secrets with its stunning 13th-century Beverley Minster, regarded by many as one of Europe’s finest Gothic churches. Take a look at the town’s medieval architecture before indulging in a spot of shopping around its lively cobbled squares. Finish off with a drink in one of the traditional Yorkshire pubs where time has stood still for decades.

And beyond the town, get to know the gorgeous Yorkshire Wolds, a range of low rolling hills rising from the River Humber and sweeping along to the stunning cliffs at Flamborough Head. The gentle nature of the countryside here makes it an excellent location for walking and cycling.

The Wolds are also home to many historical homes and religious sites. The Yorkshire coast and the beautiful city of York are both within 30 miles driving distance and make for great days out.

The ancient walled city of York has been the north's spiritual capital for 2,000 years. History seeps out of every cobbled street, but the crooked old buildings house a fantastic range of contemporary designer shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Everywhere in York is easily reachable by foot as this small but perfectly formed city houses most of its main attractions within the city walls. Town planning from the Middle Ages means it can take quite some time to get your bearings but finding your way around the labyrinth of warped streets is part of the fun. Make sure you take in York Minster, The Shambles, the Railway Museum and Bettys Tea Room whilst you're there.

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.
