A haven for walkers and nature-lovers, this cosy cottage is a comfortable base for exploring some of the Dales villages and the surrounding countryside.

 

Tucked away in the sleepy hamlet of Healaugh in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this traditional stone cottage is the perfect hideaway for families and couples. Surrounded by undulating hills and breathtaking natural beauty, it’s the perfect property for those who love the great outdoors and want to explore on foot or by bike. The rural location offers beautiful views and unbridled tranquillity, but despite the quiet surroundings, you are only 1.5 miles from Reeth, which is often referred to as ‘the capital of Swaledale’. In addition to stunning panoramic views and scenery, Reeth also has also has a range of shops and restaurants to choose from and a regular market. This area of Yorkshire is popular with both walkers and cyclists, boasting a number of trails and routes to choose from. Other outdoor activities are available at centres in the area, such as fishing, canoeing, caving, climbing, abseiling.

 

Brimming with charm and character, this beautifully presented cottage has been sympathetically restored. In keeping with the building’s heritage, natural materials, such as wood and stone, are used throughout, as are the original features that have been incorporated into the overall look. Neutral tones bring a relaxing atmosphere to each room, whilst traditional-style fixtures and fittings add class.

 

Stepping into the hall, you’ll find the flag-stoned floor is the perfect place to discard muddy boots and coats. Down the step and at the end of the hall is the cosy, welcoming lounge – the ideal place for snuggling up of an evening in front of the wood burner. The hub of the house is the farmhouse –style kitchen/diner, which is well-equipped with everything you’ll need to cater for you and your guests. The dining table offers plenty of seating for everyone to dine or socialise together.

 

Upstairs, there are two gorgeous bedrooms: one king-size and one twin. Again, modern styling and original features sit side-by-side to create a unique and welcoming feel. Completing the accommodation is a large family shower room with basin and WC.

 

Heading outside, you’ll appreciate the stunning views from the enclosed garden to the rear. Enjoy a spot of alfresco dining on the patio against a wonderful backdrop, whilst the kids and/or dog enjoy running around the lawn. There is roadside parking available outside the property or on the adjacent village green.

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

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.
