An outstanding wooden lodge ideal for a special break with friends and family, located in a peaceful oasis within easy reach of all local attractions and the rugged Yorkshire coastline.

Nestled on the northern edge of the North York Moors National Park, this wonderful Scandinavian-style lodge is perfect for families who want to discover the natural beauty of the local area. Immerse yourselves in the tranquillity of the countryside and enjoy the welcome break from your usual pace of life. There are plenty of routes and trails nearby for keen walkers and cyclists. There is bound to be something to suit your needs, whether you prefer an arduous hike or long climb or a quiet stroll, and many of them will be from your doorstep. The lovely village of Great Ayton is only a short distance away and has a wealth of shops and eateries to choose from. After a day walking amongst the heather-clad hills or ambling around market towns and villages, head back to your lodge for a soak in your own private hot tub on the veranda and enjoy a glass of wine or Yorkshire ale under the stars. Located within a complex of other lodges, there is also an on-site spa for those looking to indulge in even more high-quality relaxation.

As you wander up the private path amongst the trees and plants, you will appreciate the lodge’s traditional wooden construction. Its white, painted exterior makes it seem fresh, contemporary and welcoming. Stepping inside, you’ll find yourself in the immaculately presented open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where the quirkiness of the wood adds warmth to the living space. To one end is the lounge with contemporary sofas and armchairs, making it an ideal place to snuggle down in front of the TV. Light floods in through the windows, whilst contemporary wallpaper adds a splash of colour. Next to the lounge is the dining area where a round table and modern chairs provide space for everyone to dine together or plan an adventure. At the opposite end of the area, you’ll find the modern, well-equipped kitchen. Despite being compact, it has plenty of counter space for preparing food and has everything you’ll need to cook up a storm. There are two lovely bedrooms: one king-size and one twin. Carefully chosen soft furnishings and wall art add comfort and character to the rooms, whilst thoughtful touches such as fluffy robes will enable you to relax more easily. Completing the accommodation is one shower room.

Outside, you can take your time over a morning coffee or an evening meal on the veranda, or why not sunbathe on the loungers on the gravelled patio in front of the lodge and appreciate the mature shrubs surrounding the property? There is also the added bonus of a private hot tub – the perfect way to start or end your day. There is plenty of parking on site.

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.
