A stylish cottage offering a fabulous base, surrounded by popular visiting spots within the North Yorkshire area. Perfect for families and walking enthusiasts to get away and explore.

Situated in the attractive, bustling village of Great Ayton, this elegant property offers families/friends a great location within a few miles of the North York Moors National Park and is close to the picturesque Yorkshire coast. With stunning scenery to admire, tranquillity to immerse yourselves in and a wealth of activities, such as walking, cycling, fishing, photography and history to enjoy, there is something for everyone. Within the village itself there is a pub, cafe and shop, so if you don't feel like cooking after a busy day exploring, you don't have to.

Sympathetically restored, this stylish property has been beautifully decorated to accentuate the cottage's original features and add a contemporary twist. Neutral colours and muted, period tones have been used throughout to add a sense of calm, helping guests to relax into their holiday.

On entering the cottage, you'll find yourself in the hallway with floor tiles that hark back to the property's heritage. This is an ideal spot to discard unwanted coats and shoes. Leading off the hall is the wonderfully cosy and inviting lounge, where high ceilings and a large window add a sense of light and space, whilst soft furnishings and an original fireplace add comfort. Moving through, you'll find the spacious kitchen/diner which is a bright sociable space for cooking and dining. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the mod-cons, but the original fireplace and quirky cupboards add character to this otherwise modern room.

Upstairs, there are two gorgeous bedrooms. There is a sophisticated king-size master room with traditional furniture and a wooden floor adding a touch of class and a smaller twin room that is also beautifully presented. A large family bathroom and its luxurious free-standing bath is the perfect place to unwind.

French doors from the kitchen lead out to the walled courtyard garden which offers a peaceful retreat where you can enjoy a morning coffee or al fresco dining. A gate leads on to a ‘secret garden' which children and adults alike will enjoy. There is roadside parking, subject to availability.

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

The attractive village of Great Ayton has a wonderful village vibe. With a selection of pubs, restaurants, cafes and tearooms, you could eat out every night if you wanted to. As home to a young Captain Cook, there is also the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum which allows you to explore his early life in the surrounding area. If you love to walk, from Great Ayton you can walk up to Roseberry Topping (2.5 miles); a prominent hill with lots of walking trails that lead up to the distinctive summit and cliffs.

The vibrant little village of Osmotherley (13.5 miles) is well known as a starting point for walkers and cyclists. This gorgeous little place is real picture-postcard stuff. It also offers excellent facilities including a cafe, village stores and a fish and chip shop. If you're a bit of a foodie, this part of Yorkshire is packed with fantastic gastropubs, restaurants and delis. Situated within the western reaches of the North York Moors, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, Osmotherley has close proximity to lush pastures and woodlands. The western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market town and the views from here are simply stunning - there are walks and cycle routes in every direction. You are very close to the famous Cleveland Way as well as many more well-known and picturesque moorland walks, some of which lead all the way to the sea.

Great Ayton''s position at the northern end of the North York Moors means the coast is easily accessible from here. To breathe in the fresh, sea air, head to seaside town Saltburn-by-the-Sea (11 miles) with its pier, cliff tramway, golden sand and clean surf.

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.
