Stay in this delightful two bedroom country cottage, set within the grounds of a private estate, with woodland and lake for you to explore.

Sitting just 8 miles from the majestic Richmond Castle, escape to this wonderful abode and explore the array of charming towns, heritage sites and walks which surround you. Tucked at the end of a welcoming tree-lined lane, make yourself right at home in the cosy corners and outside spaces which invite you to relax and unwind at this home-from-home. With a delightful farm shop just 7 miles from your door and a welcome pack filled with goodies and treats, you will have everything you need to whet your appetite and feast upon fresh local produce throughout your retreat. Foodies, history enthusiasts and walkers, this is the holiday location for you! This bolthole is perfectly suited to small families or groups of friends to enjoy spending quality time together away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Sophisticated style and light flow from room to room. Warming the lounge is a wood burner perfect for lighting on drizzly nights to keep you toasty as you while away time cosying up and relaxing in front of the TV. To chill out and enjoy a peaceful moment, head to the snug and curl up with a book and a cup of tea from the convenient kitchenette, throw open the patio doors for a breath of fresh air and let the breeze whip through the space, bringing the outside in. When the evenings draw out and the sun shines until late, step outside onto the decking and sip a tipple in the hot tub where you can gaze across views of the grounds and enjoy a soothing soak.

Contemporary and bright, the kitchen/diner is a wonderful place to cook up a storm and experiment with flavour; showcase your culinary skills and dine at the elegant table or head outside and eat alfresco on the patio. For a night off from the kitchen, light up the BBQ and savour delicious tastes or travel 7.5 miles to a nearby Michelin-star restaurant where you can wine and dine to your heart’s content.

Escapes to the country are all about days spent exploring and nights spent rejuvenating and resting ahead of your next adventure. Drifting off to sleep is a real treat in this charming home where a super king-size and a king-size bedroom invite you to switch off and enjoy a moment of quiet. Beautifully decorated in calming tones, you will have no problem slipping off to sleep and waking up ready for the day feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

Freshen up in style in the fabulously styled bathroom and shower room. Quirky tiles add character and charm to the luxuriously large showers so you can rinse and feel reinvigorated each morning. If your muscles ache from roaming the surrounding landscapes, soak in the bath to feel soothed and take a tranquil moment for yourself.

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

A great location at the Northern Tip of the Yorkshire Dales. Easily accessible from the A1, its set within a private estate home to open meadows, woodland and a private lake - you will love exploring it from the doorstep. From the cottage, head out through the little gateway and follow the rustic woodland path down to the lake. Take a seat on the bench here and soak up the view.

The cottage is set just outside the village of Barton near Richmond. There’s a little village stores and a pub serving drinks. If you’re a bit of a foodie there are several excellent dining pubs in the area, all within easy reach. Including a 2 Michelin Starred restaurant just a few miles away. Raby Castle and Deer Park are also very close by and make for a great day out.

It’s less than an hour’s drive to the coast and the City of York so makes an ideal basecamp from which to strike out and discover these unique Yorkshire locations. Reeth and the stunning landscapes of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale are also within easy reach, and its well-placed for a day trip over the Lakes if you want to explore there too.

Mainsgill, an award-winning Deli, tea-room and farm shop is also just a short drive from the house. It’s also the perfect location if you enjoy walking. There are lots of beautiful walks from the doorstpe and nearby Gilling West is well-known as a great starting point for walking - seasoned walkers come from miles around to set off from the village.

The cottage is just a few miles away from Richmond, an historic market town with much to offer the discerning holiday-maker. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. Just a short drive through Richmond takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales proper. Head up towards Reeth and on towards Hawes in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside. Stop at the Wensleydale Heiffer for lunch before heading back to the comfort of your large luxury Yorkshire cottage.

You’ll also close to the charming town of Barnard Castle. Recently listed as one of the top 10 places to live in the UK, it’s a pretty little place with a host of 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 historic castle to explore too.

Further south, you’ll find the pretty market town of Northallerton where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street. The wonderful Betty’s Tearooms is here as is a fantastic local deli, Lewis & Cooper’s Food Emporium and of course the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers.

To take in the North York Moors head further south still and brave it up Sutton Bank, the view from the top said by some to be the finest in all of England. The gorgeous market town of Helmsley makes for the perfect pit-stop and if you feel like something special for lunch make your way to the Star Inn at Harome. And if you feel like a spot of pampering, there’s also a fantastic Spa just a few miles down the road.

This cottage was amazing and has every you need for a perfect stay. The owners greeted us on arrival to make sure we had all we needed and informed us of the area. We took our dog and he loved playing in the streams. There are walks round the grounds and to the local pubs in Mansfield & Piercebridge, the George, which serves great food and has a loRead morevely beer garden. Hot tub was lovely. Trips to nearby Richmond/ Hawes/ Thirsk/Northallerton with lovely walks/shops. I would recommend this property. Hide

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
