Enjoying a tranquil spot in a quintessential English village on the border of Durham and North Yorkshire, this gorgeous double-fronted stone cottage makes a perfect romantic getaway.

Welcome to a gorgeous country cottage with chocolate-box good looks and a beautiful village location. This quintessentially English cottage is set on the borders of North Yorkshire and Durham, so you are well placed to explore the delights of both counties. This special little cottage is just perfect for honeymoons and romantic escapes with your loved one.

 

If you closed your eyes and pictured the perfect holiday cottage, we're pretty sure it would look something like this. Set in a beautiful walled garden, the immaculate double-fronted stone cottage is like something from a fairytale. Step inside the sage green door to discover a stunning contemporary holiday home with character at every turn.

 

Boasting beautiful flagstone floors with underfloor heating throughout, the open-plan living area is home to the lounge, kitchen and dining area. At the heart of this room is a fantastic stone inglenook fireplace, with a cosy wood burner sitting inside. All wood and kindling for the burner are also provided for you. There's a large and comfortable sofa complete with a cosy throw, perfect for curling up on together while you catch a movie on the TV. There's also Netflix, a DVD and Wi-Fi included.

 

The kitchen sits to the rear of the cottage: an elegant and well-thought-out out space with glossy work-tops and contemporary units. A dishwasher, microwave and built in hob/oven are included. A separate utility to the rear of the cottage houses a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer. You'll find the cupboards well-stocked with crockery and utensils, everything you'll need to rustle up a romantic dinner for two. There's also a welcome hamper waiting for you on arrival. The dining area sits next to the fire, a lovely spot whatever the time of day.

 

The heated flagstone flooring continues into the bedroom, which is a peaceful and romantic room featuring a king-size bed dressed in the finest luxury bedding. What a joy waking up in this beautiful room, knowing there's no rush to get out of bed. The bathroom is situsated next door. Again, with heated flagstone flooring there is a walk-in shower and a separate bath in here. So, plenty of candle-lit soaks with a glass of bubbly in hand!

 

Outside the cottage, there's that traditional English walled garden to enjoy. A patio area next to the house comes complete with patio furniture for those long lazy lunches in the sun. Afterwards, throw down a blanket on the lawn and indulge yourself with a little snooze. There is also a pleasant paved area to the rear of the cottage which has its own bistro table and chairs. A lovely spot for that morning coffee, or perhaps an afternoon tipple. The separate utility to the rear of the cottage is perfect for storing muddy boots after a hike across the Dales and is also ideal for storing bikes if cycling is your thing.

The cottage has a great location, nestling in a picture-postcard village on the borders of North Yorkshire and Durham. With less than an hour's drive to the coast and the historic city of York, it's an ideal basecamp from which to strike out and discover these unique Yorkshire locations. Reeth (17 miles) and the stunning landscapes of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale are all within easy reach and it's also well placed for a day trip over to the Lakes and Durham City if you want to explore those areas too.

 

The cottage is set within a village and is the perfect location if you enjoy walking as it’s on the Teesdale Way, and there are lots of beautiful walks from the doorstep. You'll find more really breathtaking trails just a few miles south in Swaledale.

 

The charming town of Barnard Castle lies 4 miles west of the cottage. Recently listed as one of the top 10 rural places to live in the UK, it's a pretty little place with a host of boutique shops, cafes and pubs to explore. The excellent Bowes Museum is here and is well worth a visit. And as the name would suggest, there's an English Heritage castle to explore too.

 

This romantic cottage is also 13 miles away from Richmond, a historic market town with much to offer the discerning holidaymaker. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history.

 

Just a short drive from the cottage takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Head up through the Stang forest towards Reeth (17 miles) and on towards Hawes (30 miles) in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside. Further south, you'll find the pretty market town of Northallerton (28 miles) where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street. The wonderful Betty's Tearooms is here, as is a fantastic local deli and the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers.

 

This property is personally managed by Rupert.

We had the most wonderful relaxing week at Rosemary Cottage. From the moment we walked through the door, met by soft lighting, music and toastie warm underfloor heating, we felt completely at home and so peaceful. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and we both wished we never had to leave. The owner has thought of everything that you could possiblRead morey need, including a fabulous welcome hamper and flowers. Im so pleased that we visited in the autumn and were able to use the gorgeous log burner. 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.
