Take a lovely escape to the great outdoors, situated on the owner's working farm in rural Yorkshire, offering it’s guests private picturesque views across fields and farmland. An ideal base for walkers and cyclist or just to spend time with loved ones.

Nestled on the cusp of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within easy reach of the glorious rolling Yorkshire Dales, this gorgeous farmhouse is a great base for your group of six guests. The working farm setting offers a quintessential take on your special staycation, providing miles upon miles of scenic walks and exciting trails to discover. Return red-cheeked and hungry for your evening meal, choosing between cooking in the comfort of your property, or venturing the short stroll into the village for a hearty meal in the welcoming pub.

Step inside via the entrance hall, soaking up the laid-back decor and glimpses of classic architecture such as exposed stone and painted beams. Each room has been carefully styled with a combination of vintage and contemporary furnishings and accessories. A wood burner flickers in the stone fireplace and natural light pours in through the windows.

Savour the opportunity to linger over meals in the pretty dining room. The country-cottage kitchen has chic cabinetry and an electric Range cooker for a classic twist, providing foodies with everything they need to get cooking. Children can play safely outside whilst you supervise from the window. An original fireplace with Victorian-style tiling gives the essence of olde-world charm as you whip up breakfast, and there is direct access to the dining room when it is time to dish up.

In terms of washing facilities, you’ll be spoilt for choice as there is a lovely shower room on the ground floor and a first-floor bathroom with a large bath. One of the double bedrooms upstairs features its own en-suite bathroom with a shower over the bath, a bonus treat after a busy day exploring the countryside. Completing the first floor are two further bedrooms, one double and one twin. Back downstairs, the useful utility room has storage space for muddy boots and a washing machine and tumble dryer for all your laundry needs.

Outside the garden is a delight for children and their four-legged friends to run and play on the lawn whilst grown-ups share a drink on the patio with BBQ. Protected against the elements and tucked beneath an oak-framed shelter is the hot tub, a luxurious extra touch for unwinding after busy days out. Parking is available on the gravelled courtyard, but you can also leave your cars outside the front for ease of loading and unloading after your daily trips.

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

Bishop Thornton is located 9 miles from Harrogate and in a prime location for getting back to nature. Boasting a village pub that serves traditional local fare and cask ales, you’ll be ideally placed for exploring on foot, on bike or by car before returning to dine out.

The grand Victorian spa town of Harrogate is regularly listed as the best place to live in the UK. The gorgeous Yorkshire town combines traditional elegance with contemporary style effortlessly.

Best known for its antiques and fine art, Harrogate has antique dealers and galleries around every corner, particularly around the Montpellier Quarter. If buying old paintings and furniture isnt your bag, there are a host of other reasons to shop in Harrogate. High fashion outlets nestle alongside lavish interior boutiques, punctuated with fine restaurants and cafes.

A visit to Bettys Tearooms is a must and if you have time, we highly recommend a session at the famous Turkish Baths. If youre travelling with children, Harrogate is famous for its outdoor space with lots of parkland and greenery everywhere. The RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr are also a fantastic option for families.

Harrogate is also very close to the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors so it makes the perfect base from which to explore the glorious Yorkshire landscape and its many stunning natural sights. The breathtaking Nidderdale is 6.5 miles north west, and you will be driving through some of the most dramatic Dales scenery. Take a day trip to Ilkley (23.5 miles) combined with a visit to Bolton Abbey, 20 miles away.

York is within easy reach (27 miles) and a day trip to this beautiful medieval city is well worth it.

What a beautiful cottage. 3 bedroom and 3 bathrooms so great for a group or family. Huge garden, hot tub under cover, BBQ and a pizza oven great fun to use. Wood burning fire in lounge makes it very cosy at night. Near to Ripon and Harrogate. Great base for a holiday. Highly recommend.

The house is absolutely lovely. It is very well equipped and was very clean on arrival. A welcome hamper was a lovely touch. The garden is really large, enclosed and well kept. The hot tub is in an ideal place as the views are stunning and watching the sunset is an added bonus. We loved our time here and was quite reluctant to go home!

We had a wonderful stay at Moorfield House. The house is beautiful, spotlessly clean and had everything we could have wanted. The garden is stunning with views of the countryside. A drink in the hot tub whatever the weather was a perfect way to end the day. We would love to return for another stay in the future.

The house itself is gorgeous. The standard of decor/furnishing is excellent. It is extremely well equipped with fantastic extras like the pizza oven, fabulous hot tub and generous welcome hamper.

We also found the shrieking of the pigs a bit upsetting. We are town folk; perhaps a working farm wasnt for us. 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.
