A well-presented ground-floor cottage on a self-catering accommodation site in the pretty village of Newton-on-Rawcliffe. The village is on the cusp of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, just 4 miles from the popular town of Pickering. Within the village is a family-run 18th-century inn serving bar food and real ale, surrounded by endless walking and cycling routes over moorland and through woodland. Dalby Forest is 17 miles distant, or head to the coast (22 miles) and the possibility of strolls with gorgeous views or energetic hikes with dramatic scenery.

This is an attractively furnished ground-floor apartment. Other than the single step to get into the barn, there are no further steps. Heading through into the open-plan lounge/dining/kitchen area, the kitchen is fully equipped should you want to rustle up a hearty meal. There is a Smart TV in the lounge area so you can snuggle up on the sofa and watch a film in the evening. There are two bedrooms, a double and a twin room, both with plenty of storage space, and a bathroom next door which has a shower over the bath.

I really came for the hot tub and pool for my disabled daughter and it worked brilliantly - thank you so much.

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.
