Escape to this romantic retreat with your nearest and dearest and luxuriate in all its special touches, including a wonderful private hot tub. Sleeping just two guests, but also welcoming one canine companion, this one-bedroom abode could be perfect for dog-loving couples eager to immerse themselves in the beauty of North Yorkshire. Set in Great Ayton, 8 miles from Middlesbrough and right on the fringes of the North York Moors National Park, it offers the perfect balance of access to independent shops, pubs and cafes as well as spectacular walking country.

Head out straight from the front door of this charming cottage to follow footpaths through the moors or hop on your bicycles to follow a myriad of trails. Lace up your walking boots and head off on hikes taking you over the hill of Roseberry Topping and past Captain Cook’s Monument. This cottage is also just 10 miles from the sea, where you can take in the magnificent Yorkshire scenery by following the England Coast Path or have a day out on the beach in the quiet Yorkshire town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

Step into this charming cottage that looks out over River Leven to find immaculate and inviting accommodation. Discover a wealth of character, with features such as revealed brick walls complemented by natural woods and carefully chosen contemporary furniture and furnishings. Make yourselves at home in this beautiful retreat.

As you come inside, find yourselves in an open-plan lounge/diner, which will be the heart of your holiday home during your stay. Spend your evenings in here together, watching a good film on TV, reading your books or making plans for the following day.

Head through to the beautifully finished kitchen at the back of the house, where there is ample space for preparing romantic meals in and for storing the fresh Yorkshire produce you source on your daily excursions. Find everything you need in here to help you produce delicious dinners to sit down to together at the dining table in the main room.

At the end of each magical day, climb the stairs to lay your head in your carefully styled double bedroom. There is a convenient dressing space up here too and a bathroom where you can enjoy long, hot bubble baths at night and refreshing showers in the morning. Treat yourselves to lazy starts throughout your stay, perhaps watching a little TV from the comfort of the bed.

Wake up in the morning and carry your first cup of tea of the day out into your private courtyard on sunny days. Take your time out here, perhaps even enjoying breakfast in the fresh air too. Return from long walks across the moors and busy days out to fire up the hot tub and relax long into the evening.

The attractive village of Great Ayton has a charming village vibe. With a selection of pubs, restaurants, cafes and tearooms, you could eat out every night if you wanted to. As the village was once home to a young Captain Cook, the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum is here where you can find out more about his life in the village and surrounding area.

The vibrant little village of Osmotherley, 14 miles away, is well known as a starting point for walkers and cyclists. This gorgeous little place is truly picture postcard. It also offers excellent facilities including a cafe, village stores and a fish and chip shop.

Situated within the beautiful western reaches of the North York Moors, Osmotherley is in close proximity to lush pastures and woodlands. The western moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns, and the views from here are simply stunning with walks and cycle routes in every direction. You are right on the famous Cleveland Way and close to many other well-known and picturesque moorland walks.

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.

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 Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Staithes (all within 30 miles). It is a beautiful terrain to explore.

A day trip to Whitby, 27 miles away, is a must while you are here. Probably the most visited and certainly one of the best-loved of Yorkshire’s seaside resorts, it offers excellent restaurants, independent shops and a host of bars and cafes as well as a wealth of history.

The town’s narrow twisting yards evolved over a thousand years ago to provide protection from Viking raiders and to help Whitby’s smugglers evade the government revenue men and tax collectors. They are a unique and much-loved feature of this part of the world and you can discover them on foot.

Straddling the River Esk and dominated by the 13th-century ruins of St Hilda’s Abbey on the East Cliff, Whitby is also known for its crooked cobbled streets and picturesque harbour that have been a magnet for artists and tourists for centuries. Providing the backdrop for some of Lewis Carroll’s work, it was also famously the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
