Escape to this cosy cottage and embrace adventure by exploring the North York Moors, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the perfect base to enjoy wide open space or stay in, with the private enclosed garden or relax and snuggle up in front of the wood burner.

A wonderfully idyllic retreat for walkers and adventurers, this home sits on the edge of the magnificent North York Moors National Park. Grab your jacket, pack up a picnic and set off to discover stunning scenery and lush landscapes in this peaceful corner of the country. Home-from-home comforts including a warming wood burner, a coffee machine and a welcome pack filled with delicious goodies await you after days spent breathing in the fresh countryside air.

Arrive at this abode and marvel at the exposed brickwork and beams which add character and charm to the inviting lounge area. Get the wood burner roaring and curl up with your favourite book or lose yourself in a film on the TV/DVD player. Natural light floods into this room creating a calm ambience which complements the sophisticated style.

The sleek kitchen is well-equipped to cater for all occasions, whether that is serving up a three-course culinary delight, experimenting with new exciting flavours, rustling up a tasty snack or throwing together yummy picnic food. The contemporary breakfast bar also means that the chef of the house never has to be lonely and it’s also a great spot for savouring a sip of a coffee in the morning or a tipple in the evening. A welcome pack left by the owners is yours to devour; choose from yummy treats and fresh produce and see if you can make it last your trip!

Dining is an elegant task at this bolthole. The wood burner is double sided and so also throws out heat to this room to ensure cosy meal times whatever the weather. With plenty of space for all, enjoy communal meals and spend quality time together chatting across the table about today’s memories and tomorrow’s adventures. On summer evenings, abandon the dining room and take your plate outside to eat alfresco under the setting sun. A BBQ is provided and is perfect for warm nights for an easy yet tasty meal for all to tuck into.

After-dinner relaxation can be enjoyed in the snug, a bright space which leads out to the garden and has its own TV; find a peaceful moment here away from the holiday rush and feel revived and rejuvenated for the days ahead. The garden is tiered and landscaped to a lovely standard making it a refreshing place to lap up the fresh air and wind down after busy days.

When bedtime arrives, climb the stairs to the first floor where you are greeted by three lovely bedrooms. All of these rooms are beautifully decorated and welcome you to drift off and doze and find tranquillity. The master room is treated to a fabulous en-suite bathroom where many a soak can be had to soothe aching muscles and tired feet. The first floor is also home to the family shower room which, in keeping with the rest of the property, has been thoughtfully decorated and finished.

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

Tawny Owl Cottage is set in Carlton in Cleveland within the stunning North York Moors National Park. Carlton is a real picture postcard village, were handsome Yorkshire cottages sit either side of a babbling beck running through the village.

Beyond this gorgeous village are the moors themselves. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns.

There are some stunning walks right from your doorstep, and you are just a mile away from the famous Cleveland Way. Head up Carlton Bank and take in some of the best views in the country, making sure you pop into Lordstone’s Café at the top for a cup of tea and a slice of home-made cake. There’s also a great farm shop here selling the very best local Yorkshire produce.

There’s also a lovely gastro pub here, well known in these parts for serving the very best Thai food and traditional English dishes.

Just a few miles away you have the beautiful little village of Swainby. Like Carlton in many ways it hosts a further two good dining pubs, a Post Office and local shop.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley is also within easy driving distance and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering you’ll find the Verbena Spa here; perfect for a little me time indulgence!

And just a little further to the west you will find the charming market towns of Northallerton and Thirsk. Make sure you stop for a cup of tea at Bettys Tearooms!

And with York, Harrogate, the Yorkshire Coast and Leeds all within an hour’s drive, there’s a huge amount of choice for day trips!

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.
