This chic and luxury cottage is full of character and the perfect location from which to explore picturesque York and its surrounding countryside

This charming cottage in the attractive village of Long Marston is a perfect place for friends and families to relax and enjoy quality time together. Long Marston is surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, including the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (approx. 20 miles) with its wealth of walking/cycling routes, but it also has excellent road links with many of the towns and cities nearby. There is also a village pub for evenings when you don't feel like cooking. The larger market town, Wetherby, is 7 miles west with a range of shops and eateries, or the walled city of York is 7.5 miles in the other direction.


Bursting with character, this property is packed with original features making it a memorable place to stay. Sympathetically refurbished, the contemporary decor beautifully incorporates quirky aspects of the building, eclectic patterns and fabrics, and distinctive pieces of furniture to create a unique home.


Stepping inside, discard your coats and boots in the hall before heading into the well-equipped kitchen. It is bright and airy and has everything you'll need to cook up some treats; there's also a bespoke breakfast bar so that cooking can be a sociable event. From here, you can access the magnificent lounge/diner: a large, sociable space with the wow-factor. The double-height dining space creates a grand place for eating and the exposed brick wall adds character and charm. Full-height double doors flood the area with light, but of an evening you can pull the period feature sliding shutters along their tracks for a cosier feel. The lounge area is also cosy, with a soft, deep sofa to sink into to chat or watch TV.


Upstairs, there are two bedrooms. The light and spacious master bedroom is on a mezzanine level with a glass balcony looking down over the living area. The other room is a French antique double with a unique bedstead. Completing the accommodation is the contemporary bathroom with a separate shower and bath, complete with complimentary products.  


Outside, there is a lovely patio area with seating, which is great for a spot of al fresco dining. This is situated to the left of the owners' driveway and garden. There is off-road parking for up to two cars to the front of the property.

The jewel in North Yorkshire's crown, we think York is one of the best short break destinations in England and is a favourite amongst even the most seasoned of travellers. This ancient walled city has been the north's spiritual capital for 2,000 years, but that's not to say it is stuck in the past; York's affluent population and its influx of tourist pounds has helped to create a cultural and commercial oasis. History seeps out of every cobbled street, but the crooked old buildings house a fantastic range of contemporary designer shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Everywhere in York is easily reachable by foot as this small but perfectly formed city houses most of its main attractions within the city walls. Middle Ages' town planning means it can take quite some time to get your bearings but finding your way around the labyrinth of warped streets is part of the fun. Make sure you take in York Minster, The Shambles, the Railway Museum and Betty's tea room whilst you're there.

If you are looking for outside space in which to relax, you have the choice of a number of parks and gardens, including Dean's Park next to the Minster, the Yorkshire Museum Gardens and next to the River Ouse, and slightly further afield, Rowntree Park with its children's playground, tennis courts and bowling green.

If walking or cycling is your thing, there are lots of beautiful paths and routes in the area. Its central location also makes a great base from which to explore the rest of glorious Yorkshire, with the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and Yorkshire Coastline all within easy reach for beautiful walks and adventurous days out.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley (30 miles) is within easy driving distance and is well worth a visit. Head 25.5 miles east to find Malton, another gorgeous market town offering lots of lovely independent shops and cafes to indulge in, or the charming market town of Easingwold is a great option at 17.5 miles from the city.

Also worth a visit is the gorgeous Yorkshire town of Harrogate (15.5 miles), which combines traditional elegance with contemporary style.

Best known for its antiques and fine art, Harrogate has antique dealers and galleries around every corner, particularly around the Montpellier Quarter. If buying old paintings and furniture isn't your bag there are a host of other reasons to part with your cash in Harrogate. High fashion outlets nestle alongside lavish interior boutiques, punctuated with enough fine restaurants and cafes to keep you fuelled for weeks.

A visit to Betty's Tearooms is a must and if you have time we highly recommend a session at the famous Turkish Baths. Rejuvenate spirit and soul after a day on the town. If you're travelling with children, Harrogate is famous for its outdoor space with lots of parkland and greenery everywhere. The RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr (17.5 miles) are also a fantastic option for families.

Lovely, full of character property that will make you feel at home the moment you step in. The sofa is snuggly, the kitchen is well equipped, making you want to cook or bake if you want it; the bath and shower are a real treat after a long day walking in the Dales or chilling! Small gestures such as quality bathroom products, tea/honey/homemade jamRead more or fresh baked cake are truly lovely. If you are hesitating, don't anymore and click 'book'! Hide

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.
