Enjoy a relaxing getaway in a luxurious Scandinavian lodge. A perfect holiday home for a family looking for a secluded spot in lovely countryside on the edge of the North York Moors.

This five-star luxury lodge, framed by a leafy canopy, is set in an exclusive complex of four properties in beautiful countryside near the charming village of Great Ayton (1 mile). With ample space for four guests and a lucky canine companion, the lodge boasts its own garden space, a private terrace and its own hot tub in this peaceful haven. It’s ideal for families, friends, or couples who want to enjoy a relaxed getaway together in a peaceful setting. There’s also a day spa on-site where guests can book indulgent spa treatments – just what’s needed to unwind from busy lifestyles. If you can tear yourself away from this heavenly idyll, take a country walk along one of the many local trails and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature along the way. Hop on two wheels and explore the 109-mile Cleveland Way (5.5 miles) or explore the North York Moors National Park (2 miles). If youre a foodie, you’ve come to the right place; this part of Yorkshire is packed with wonderful gastropubs, high-end restaurants and food delis fit for culinary kings and queens.

Step up to the decked terrace of this stylish lodge which offers every creature comfort to make your stay a comfortable one. Head inside to find a long sweep of open-plan ground floor interiors, from the living area through the dining area to the kitchen, decorated in contemporary rustic style. Mealtimes are a breeze with the well-equipped kitchen fitted with everything you need to follow favourite recipes for your hungry brood. There’s also a handy washing machine so you’ll have less holiday packing to do and more time to plan fun days in the surrounding region. After a busy day of adventures, take a dip in your bubbly hot tub on the terrace where you can soak away your cares and rejuvenate on this most relaxing of breaks. Gather around the dining table and tuck into delicious meals featuring fresh Yorkshire farm produce, before settling into cosy seating for film nights on the Smart TV. When sleepy heads nod, head upstairs to find two beautiful bedrooms with fluffy robes, elegant linens and super-stylish beds with sumptuous tufted headboards: a king-size bedroom with a TV, and a double bedroom (which can be adapted to a twin by request), both made for the best night’s sleep.

Enjoy a rich morning brew from the coffee machine and step outside to breathe in the fresh country air. Have breakfast on the sunny terrace before setting out on a new day of exploration in North Yorkshire. Or enjoy lazy days in the garden at the front of the property, catching rays from the comfort of stylish sun loungers. If you’re feeling peckish, find shops, pubs and a restaurant within half a mile, and free parking in the public car park.

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.
