This beautiful cottage rests in the quiet village of Osgoodby, in easy reach of Thirsk, making a tranquil base for your romantic getaway to North Yorkshire.

This gorgeous cottage is set in a peaceful location in a quiet little hamlet just 5 miles from Thirsk. Accessed from a beautifully kept garden, you can enjoy the tranquillity of a countryside location on the edge of the North York Moors National Park while still being close to a pub, coffee shop (both 1.5 miles) and the animals at Monk Park Farm (2.5 miles). With ample space for up to four people, this cottage is bursting with countryside charm and is the perfect holiday home for guests that want to explore stunning wildlife and plants, all framed by spectacular views.

Follow the path through the wonderful garden and hang up your coats and boots in the vestibule before heading into the lounge where stunning wood beams and vaulted ceilings create a cosy atmosphere; snuggle up on the sofas and watch your favourite programme on the Smart TV among the crackling of the wood burner and an eclectic mix of antique and artisan pieces. Curl up on the armchair near the large window and read a book, looking out towards beautiful views.

Cook up a storm in the fantastic kitchen where stylish greys and rich woods are used to create a superb blend of the contemporary and the traditional. The chef of the group will revel in the appliances, including a bread maker, so there’s no excuse not to have tasty breakfasts! Gather around the table or pop out to the garden to dine alfresco among the breathtaking scenery.

When you’ve finished your meal and you’re ready to fully explore the garden, find the secluded double arbour beside the wildlife pond, shrub and herbaceous borders. It’s a typical cottage garden with lots of fruit, vegetables and flowers, including cherry trees and even some bonsai! Enjoy a little peace at the alpine rock garden, or stroll through the wonderful private wildflower meadow to a beautiful picnic spot beside a small lake. Take in the magnificent views from all around you, sipping an al fresco drink from the table. Look out for hares, wild deer, owls and badgers, or visit the five friendly hens and collect their eggs. You’re also welcome to harvest any of the vegetables that are ready to eat during your stay. Whatever you like to do outside, you’ll find your favourite little spot out here.

When it’s time for bed, head back inside to the ‘landscape room’, where a super-king-size zip-and-link bed can be made into a twin on request and features fantastic rich woods and elegant soft furnishings. Stylish downlighting gives the room a light and airy feel, but switch them off and rely on the lamps and you’ll create a soft, dreamy atmosphere that will lull you to sleep. The ‘portrait room’ feels indulgent and relaxing with regal reds among superb wooden beams and a comfy chair alongside a table for you to read the newspapers in the morning. And with a king-size bed, there’s plenty of room for you to stretch out. Take an invigorating shower in the morning in the en-suite shower room or take a luxurious soak in the separate bathroom in the evening to soothe aches and pains from walking in the moors.

Really great cottage- both inside with its super new kitchen, and outside with a pretty and practical garden including produce to harvest! Also acres in the grounds to explore.

Very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and very well equipped house with a new kitchen (at the time of writing) and all new and good quality kitchen tools and appliances. It was more like staying in a good friend's house than a holiday rental. Pretty garden, but due to weather did not explore the lake area, will leave that to the next time.

The Garden Cottage is just wonderful. We particularly liked: -High quality furniture and equipment -Large, comfortable beds -Hamper of Yorkshire products -Picking veggies from the garden -Location between the Moors and the Dales -Considerate and welcoming hosts -Superb cleanliness and hand sanitizer provided. But to be honest, we liked everything.

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.
