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.

Tucked away on the northern edge of the North York Moors National Park, this delightful Scandinavian-style lodge is the ideal property for families and friends who want to explore the natural beauty of the surrounding area. The rural setting allows you to switch off from your hectic pace of life and immerse yourselves in the tranquillity of the countryside. Whether you’re keen walkers and cyclists, there will be a route or trail nearby to suit your needs, many of which will be from your doorstep. The village of Great Ayton is only a short distance away and has a wealth of shops and eateries to choose from. After a busy day walking amongst the heather-clad hills or strolling around market towns and villages, head home for a soak in your own private hot tub on the lodge’s veranda and enjoy a glass of bubbly or Yorkshire ale under the stars. Situated within a complex of other lodges, there is also an on-site spa for those looking to indulge in some high-quality relaxation.

As you approach the lodge along its private path, you will appreciate its traditional wooden construction. On entering, you’ll find yourself in the well-presented open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where wood is certainly the star of the show, adding warmth and quirkiness to the living space. At one end is the lounge with a comfy sofa, a wicker armchair and beanbags, where you can snuggle down in front of the TV. Plenty of windows let the light flood into the space, whilst contemporary wallpaper and rustic furniture add charm. Adjacent to the lounge is the dining area where there is plenty of space for everyone to dine together or plan your next adventure. At the other end, you’ll find the modern, well-equipped kitchen. Although it’s compact, it has plenty of space for cooking and has everything you’ll need to cook up a storm. There is even a washing machine to wash your muddy walking or cycling kit. There are two beautiful bedrooms: one king-size and one double that can be made up as a twin on request. Oversized headboards and soft cushions bring a sense of style and luxury to the room, whilst thoughtful touches such as fluffy robes will help you to relax into your stay. Completing the accommodation is a shower room.

Outside, you can enjoy a morning coffee or an evening meal on the veranda, or why not settle down with a good book on the loungers on the gravelled patio in front of the lodge? There is also the luxury of a private hot tub for a quick dip to start or finish your day. There is plenty of parking on-site.

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

The attractive village of Great Ayton (1.5 miles) has a wonderful village vibe. With a selection of pubs, restaurants, cafes and tearooms, you could eat out every night if you wanted to. As home to a young Captain Cook, there is also the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum which allows you to explore his early life in the surrounding area. If you love to walk, from Great Ayton you can walk up to Roseberry Topping (2.5 miles), a prominent hill with lots of walking trails that lead up to the distinctive summit and cliffs.

The vibrant little village of Osmotherley (14.5 miles) is well-known as a starting point for walkers and cyclists. This gorgeous little place is real picture-postcard stuff. It also offers excellent facilities including a cafe, village stores and a fish and chip shop. If you're a bit of a foodie, this part of Yorkshire is packed with fantastic gastropubs, restaurants and delis. Situated within the western reaches of the North York Moors, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, Osmotherley has 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, plus there are walks and cycle routes in every direction. You are very close to the famous Cleveland Way as well as many more well-known and picturesque moorland walks, some of which lead all the way to the sea.

Great Ayton’s position at the northern end of the North York Moors means the coast is easily accessible from here. To breathe in the fresh, sea air, head to seaside town Saltburn-by-the-Sea (11 miles) with its pier, cliff tramway, golden sand and clean surf.

If you’re looking for something a little more cosmopolitan, head 7.5 miles north to the bustling town of Middlesbrough. Here you’ll find a wider range of shops and eateries, as well as a selection of museums, galleries, parks and sights.

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.
