It’s perfectly placed for couples and canine companions who love to walk and wallow in the heart of the countryside, breathing in the pure fresh country air. Try a different walk every day, from the gentle farm landscape, by babbling brooks and rugged fields to the rolling hills and undulating landscape of the dales – you’ll never run out of trails here.

Enjoy the bright and airy spacious design, harmonising with beamed ceilings and the warm tones of traditional country style. Create delicious meals with locally sourced ingredients in the well-equipped kitchen, boasting an electric oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, and a slow cooker.

Set on the owners farm, your neighbours are sheep, with the farmhouse itself being far enough away for it to feel private. The furnishings are smart, modern and the large bed and pillows are very comfortable. The weather was awful whilst we were there, so being able to access Netflix and Amazon Prime from the smart TV was a real bonus. Also, the hoRead moret tub is covered so you can enjoy the views in any weather. Nicola is friendly and helpful and we highly recommend the farm produce you can purchase! 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.
