This stylish holiday cottage is an ideal retreat for enjoying a break away with family or friends with classy touches throughout. It is the perfect base to immerse yourself in the Yorkshire Dales.

This quaint, end-of-terrace, stone cottage, in the heart of one of the Yorkshire Dales National Park’s prettiest villages, is an ideal property for two couples or a family. Situated in West Burton with its attractive village green and no through road, this cottage offers guests the combination of village life and rural tranquillity. Conveniently, within the village there is a shop/tearoom, pub, butchers, an antiques shop and a pottery. Other delightful towns and villages are also nearby and all have a wealth of shops, eateries and historic sights to explore. Within the Yorkshire Dales, there are many walking trails and cycle routes, all allowing you to soak up the rolling hills, dramatic scenery and traditional stone walls associated with the Dales.

As you step through the front door, you’ll find yourself in the bright and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The use of neutral greys and whites help make the most of the modest living area as they create the feeling of light and space. There are a few original features which hint at the property’s heritage, but they have been seamlessly blended with the contemporary cottage style that has been used throughout the property.

The lounge has comfortable sofas, which will be perfect for snuggling up in front of the wood burner of an evening. The well-equipped, modern kitchen has everything you’ll need to cook a meal for four and there is seating for everyone around the upcycled, country-cottage dining table in the corner. There is even a utility room for wet coats and muddy boots.

Up the cottage-style stairs, you will find two bedrooms (two double) with fresh linen and white furniture creating a restful atmosphere. The large, family shower room completes the accommodation. To the rear of the property, a south-facing, walled garden has views across the countryside. Its modern dining furniture offers a lovely place to sit and enjoy a morning coffee, whilst planning the day ahead. Roadside parking opposite the property is subject to availability, parking available in village.

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

  • 2 double bedrooms
  • 1 shower room
  • Electric oven and hob, fridge, microwave, coffee machine and dishwasher
  • Utility room with washing machine
  • Wood burner (first basket of logs included)
  • Electric and central heating included

Nearby Aysgarth (2.5 miles) is in Wensleydale, within the breathtaking Yorkshire Dales National Park and home to the Aysgarth Falls, which were featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves! The village boasts many great options to eat, including popular pubs and cute cafes. If you visit in spring, you can’t leave without a visit to Freeholders’ Wood where bluebells, anemones and primroses will be in full bloom.

As hard as it will be to tear yourself away from the picturesque village, there’s plenty more to see and do in the local area. Within a 10-mile radius, there are the charming settlements of Hawes and Askrigg. Hawes is a popular market town less than 10 miles from Aysgarth and is most famous as being the home of Wensleydale cheese! It also boasts lovely shops, pubs and tea rooms. Walkers will also love the town as the Pennine Way passes through it, making it the perfect starting point for exploring the countryside. The small village of Askrigg is 7 miles away from Aysgarth and has some delightful tea rooms and pubs.

The stunning landscape of Wensleydale itself includes 25 miles of lush valleys, criss-crossed with the area’s iconic dry-stone walls. If you enjoy walking and countryside views, you will not be short of things to do, with Wensleydale providing delightful moorland, dale-side and valley walks. Wensleydale is also sandwiched between Wharfedale and Swaledale, if you fancy exploring further afield.

History lovers will be fascinated by visits to Bolton Castle, Middleham Castle and Jervaulx Abbey, which are 5.5, 10 and 13 miles from the property, respectively. Bolton Castle dates back to the 14th century and once held Mary, Queen of Scots prisoner, while Middleham Castle was the childhood home of Richard III. Jervaulx Abbey is the country’s largest privately-owned Cistercian Abbey and offers peace and tranquillity to its visitors. If you enjoy a bit of surreal entertainment, how about a visit to the quite brilliant Forbidden Corner, an attraction full of statues and hidden surprises, 9.5 miles away also near Middleham.

We loved this cosy cottage, we used the side door due to dogs/kids and front being close to the road. Parked the car up on the green which is a lovely walk back up each day, everyone in the village is so friendly. There is a lovely village green with pub, butchers, tea shop and village shop all sat around it. Cauldron Falls on doorstep for paddlingRead more or wild swimming if your brave. Richmond is lovely with castle and waterfalls, Malham Cove def worth the drive. Great holiday! Hide

This is not only a beautiful little cottage but it's set in a stunning area. The local Fox and Hounds is great, especially the take away options, the butcher's sells some fantastic food.

Absolutely great location with lots of walking direct from the door. Whilst there is a small enclosed patio area to the rear, this can only be accessed by a shared driveway which has open access to a busy road, so we were unable to leave the back door open for our dog to wander in and out.

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.
