Enjoy a special break with friends and family here, open up the doors and let the outside in creating a truly unique entertaining space, in a tranquil setting located in private grounds.

Situated on the northern edge of the North York Moors National Park, this wonderful Scandinavian-style lodge offers families and friends a quirky, yet stylish, setting for a special holiday or reunion. It occupies a peaceful rural setting amongst the Yorkshire countryside, making it the ideal place to switch off, unwind and enjoy quality time with loved ones. However, as part of a complex, there are facilities on site, including a spa for those who want to pamper themselves. The charming village of Great Ayton is also a mile away with its shops and eateries. Whether you or not you are keen walkers or cyclists, there is a wealth of routes and trails on your doorstep, with something for all abilities. The property has lots of sociable areas for everyone to get together, but it also has enough space for guests to spread out and enjoy some quiet time. After a busy day exploring the local market towns or walking in the heather-clad hills, head back home, slip on your fluffy robes and sink into your private hot tub for a spot of star gazing.

This luxury lodge is a very special property; the natural textures and colours of wood are the stars of the show, but unique design features and attention to detail make this a truly wonderful place to stay. As you ascend the steps towards the front of the property, you will appreciate the quality of the exterior which hints at what’s inside. After leaving your muddy shoes under the porch at the front, you will enter into the open-plan living area, where contemporary design blends effortlessly with traditional furniture to create a homely ambience. A partial wall separates this room from the kitchen, which is well-equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up some special meals. Completing the ground floor is a utility room and a shower room.

Upstairs, the exquisite bedrooms are arranged over two floors. On the first floor, there are two chairs on the landing that can open up to become beds for two extra guests. From here, you can access two delightful king-size bedrooms which both open on to a shared veranda, complete with hammock. A luxurious, contemporary shower room completes this floor. The second floor is well-suited to families, with twin beds in the landing area and a further double room, but there is restricted height in places due to the slanted ceilings.

A spacious veranda wraps around the property but opens up at one end to create a delightful terrace with plenty of seating for al fresco dining. It is also home to the hot tub where you can soak up the tranquillity and enjoy the views. Your four-legged friends are also catered for with their own, snug ‘Doghouse’. Free parking is available in the car park, subject to availability.

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

The attractive village of Great Ayton (1 mile) 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 gorgeous market town of Stokesley (4 miles) is also worth a visit. It’s attractive mix of Victorian and Georgian architecture and cobbled streets is home to independent shops, tea rooms and pubs. It also holds an Agricultural Show every September which shows off the best the area has to offer with lots of things to see and do.

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 town and the views from here are simply stunning, and 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.

This property’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.

Lovely place to stay in, close to some amenities and plenty to do. We stayed for 5 days and managed to squeeze in Kayaking, mountain biking and climb Roseberry topping.

Beautiful property fitted to a high standard. It may be useful to have a couple of twins rather than just one which is adjoining one of the upstairs bedrooms.

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.
