Charming cottage set in the idyllic riverside location of Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales, offering a wonderful countryside retreat to a tranquil spot whilst sitting close to many attractions in the area.

This charming one-bedroom stone cottage is set in an idyllic riverside location in Wensleydale. Nestling within a pretty village complete with a village green and pub, it's the perfect escape for couples looking for a peaceful country retreat.

Immaculately presented, the accommodation in this romantic Yorkshire cottage is all on one level. The open-plan living area is home to the lounge, kitchen and dining area, and features French doors leading out to a quiet and sheltered stone patio. The lounge has a comfy sofa to cosy up on and a living-flame stove to warm your toes by. Curl up here after a day's sightseeing and enjoy a movie with your loved one or pull up a chair by the fire and start that book you've been looking forward to for ages. There's a LCD TV with DVD and Wi-Fi is provided too. 

The kitchen has shaker-style units giving this area a bright and warm appeal. Adding to the cosy and welcoming vibe of this cottage, expect to find some delicious home-baked goodies on your arrival. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher and the cupboards are well-stocked with all of the utensils needed to rustle up a romantic dinner for two. The dining area sits next to the kitchen and is a relaxing spot to settle down and eat, whatever the time of day. Guests also have access to a larger freezer, washing machine and dryer if needed. The bedroom comes complete with a cast iron king-size bed and chunky solid oak furniture. Two windows let in streams of light and the crisp cotton bedding is a joy to wake up in each morning. The bathroom sits right next door and houses a  shower cubicle. It's also got underfloor heating and a heated towel rail, always welcome additions. 

Outside, there's a lovely private patio just outside the lounge French doors. With a charming bistro table and chairs provided and the use of a BBQ, it's a heavenly spot for lunch or dinner alfresco in the warmer months. There's also a well-maintained lawn which is the perfect sun trap in the warmer months. And just down the lane within the grounds, there are plenty of places to throw down a rug by the river and enjoy a picnic with a bottle of bubbly or two.

The cottage is located in Little Crakehall, just outside the market town of Bedale. It is set in a unique heritage site with a historic working watermill which has featured in various TV programmes and films, including the BBC's Countryfile series. The village itself is very pretty, a large green is overlooked by the manor house and the pub, and there are a cricket ground and a children's park in the centre of the village. The walk to the village green from the cottage is a pleasant 5-minute stroll across the river.

Beyond the village, the handsome town of Bedale is worth a visit. Stop for a coffee before making your way around the town's antique shops. In the opposite direction, you'll find Leyburn (8.5 miles), an archetypical slice of Dales market town life where traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gather around a handsome town square, which hosts a busy market every Friday. Leyburn is also home to the biggest auction centre outside of London if you fancy picking up a bargain. The nearby town of Richmond (9.5 miles) is similar in many ways and has a lovely setting along the River Swale.

There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of the cottage. Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle are both within 16 miles and the picturesque villages of West Burton and Askrigg are under 20.5 miles, so lots of choices for things to do if you want to get out and about. If walking is your thing, the Yorkshire Dales are something of a walker's paradise.

Lovely quiet cottage next to a stream. Met by Lionel who showed us around. Crisp white bedding and cosy bed. Softest towels ever. Large shower with gel provided. Alison made us a gorgeous fruit cake and dropped off some homemade apple juice. It was my birthday, Alison put banners and a balloon up for me, nice touch. Lionel showed us round his workiRead moreng watermill and how he made the flour, much appreciated thank you. Pub was a 5 minute walk away. Best hosts. Middleham/Leyburn good for walks. Hide

Handily placed for the Yorkshire Dales but also fairly close to the Moors. The property was nicely presented, comfortable and bright.

A delightful cottage to spend a week - or more! A little disappointing that the local pub seems to be a little hit and miss with regards to opening times. These things happen.

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.
