Relax in style in this spacious accommodation with a hot tub and luxury touches. It’s a wonderful base in a picture-postcard village for walkers, cyclists and rural enthusiasts wanting a get away from the daily hustle and bustle.

The attractive village of Great Ayton lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, at the foot of the Cleveland Hills. Great Ayton is famous for being the boyhood home of Captain Cook where you can now visit The Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum. The village consists of a mixture of pretty stone cottages, two village greens, and a river running alongside, making it a popular picnic spot in the summer months. To the north of the village, the view is dominated by Roseberry Topping, a 330-metre-high hill. There are a good range of shops, restaurants, pubs and takeaways within 500 metres. Around the village are several interesting walks, with Great Ayton making a great base for walkers wishing to explore the stunning countryside.

Open the gate and head down the Victorian-style path into your luxury home from home arranged over three floors. The property has been carefully considered with an array of bespoke, high-quality finishes. Make your way into the lounge/dining area which has been designed with relaxation in mind, with ample seating available for all the family, where you can cosy up in front of the toasty wood burner, as you play a board game with your loved ones or watch a movie on the smart TV. Move through the house to find a contemporary kitchen hosting a range of integrated appliances that will please any budding chef, including a dishwasher, electric hob, oven and microwave. There is also a washing machine for those holiday practicalities. When dinner is ready, savour it at the dining table where there is another wood burner to keep warm on cooler days. When it's time to retire, head up to the first floor to find a beautifully styled king-size bedroom with a feature panelled wall, built-in wardrobes and a smart TV. There’s a bunk room with bespoke bunk beds, and up the next staircase sits a spectacular king-size bedroom boasting bi-folding windows with a Juliette balcony where you can stargaze with the telescope, and enjoy lazy mornings in bed watching a program on the smart TV.

Head outside and sink into the bubbling water of your hot tub, relaxing tired muscles after a long day out exploring the North Yorkshire countryside. There is on-street parking (subject to availability).

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.
