A real home-away-from-home, this 18th century stone-built cottage offers a lovely holiday base, sitting on the edge of the picturesque village of Hackforth is the ideal retreat for families and friends.

Stay in this beautiful stone cottage studded within the idyllic village of Hackforth on the threshold of stunning Wensleydale. Sleeping six guests across three bedrooms, it is a wonderful choice for families and friendship groups seeking a rural setting for spending quality time together. The friendly owners have even provided a fantastic welcome pack of local produce and treats for your stay.

Beneath the traditional stone exterior and climbing ivy is a delightful retreat with wooden flooring underfoot and an overwhelming sense of cosy countryside living throughout. Timber beams, exposed stone and a roaring wood burner echo the overall homeliness in the lounge. Sink back on the sofas for family films relaxing together.

Double doors open to reveal the first of two dining spaces, and this one is a sheer treat for special mealtimes. An additional wood burner crackles invitingly from the inglenook fireplace to complete the cosy atmosphere.

Three steps lead to the next level where you will discover the simple, yet sophisticated kitchen that exudes rustic charm. Tiled flooring, wooden cabinetry and marble work surfaces have been seamlessly incorporated with all you could need for cooking including an electric Range oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. There is even a downstairs utility room with laundry facilities and ample storage for coats and boots. An archway reveals a functional dining area that’s flooded with natural light pouring in through the windows, providing a tranquil space for leisurely breakfasts.

Full-bellied and ready for slumber after a busy day, you’ll find three bedrooms by ascending the open staircase from the dining room. Children can stay in the bunk bedroom while one of the king-size bedrooms has its own en-suite shower room and spectacular views of the fields beyond the house, and the remaining bedroom offers a further king-size bed. There’s also an elegant bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Sunny afternoons call for BBQ meals and tall drinks in your private garden, or why not open the bi-fold doors and let the outside in for an al fresco vibe? There’s a pretty front garden that’s a real sun trap first thing in the morning, so you could venture outside with your coffee to start the day right.

If walking is your thing, both destinations are something of a walkers paradise with many beautiful routes nearby. There are plenty of options for cycling too in Tour De Yorkshire country. The bravest amongst you will relish the chance to try caving and rock climbing, and the rivers and lakes within the national parks are renowned for their water sports.

When you need to refuel, stop at one of the area’s many excellent pubs and sample local fare. Michelin Star restaurants, bistro-style eateries and elegant gastropubs serving exotic dishes and imaginative vegetarian cuisine can be found at every turn.

The attractive town of Bedale 4 miles away is always worth a visit. Stop for a coffee before making your way around the towns antique shops and independent boutiques. Foodies will be delighted by the range of local produce, including beers and cheeses, on offer.

Nearby, the charming market town of Leyburn (9.5 miles) is an archetypical slice of Dales country life. Youll find traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gathered around the 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 historic town of Richmond (9 miles) is similar in many ways and is sat in a lovely location along the River Swale. There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of this holiday home. Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle are both within 18 miles and the villages of West Burton and Askrigg are a 21.5-mile drive, so there are lots of choices for things to do if you want to get out and about.

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.
