This charming cottage with an abundance of character in the North York Moors is an idyllic retreat for families looking to explore the natural treasures in the surrounding countryside.

A warm welcome to this chocolate-box stone cottage dating back to the 17th century. Set within a picture-postcard village on the cusp of the North York Moors National Park, this gorgeous property is reminiscent of the cottage in the Cameron Diaz movie 'The Holiday'. Bursting at the seams with period features and cosy character, you'll want to squirrel yourself away in here for weeks. Some excellent foodie pubs are within walking distance too.

We have fallen head over heels in love with this property, one of the original workman's cottages for the local estate. As soon as you spot the climbing roses around the windows you realise this immaculate stone cottage ticks every box for an idyllic English country cottage escape. Step inside to find traditional comfortable interiors that wrap you in a warm embrace as you walk through the door.

Make your way through the entrance hall to the surprisingly generous sitting room. At the heart of the room is an original stone fireplace home to a wood burner. Light up the fire and snuggle up on the easy chair with a cup of hot chocolate, sheer bliss! There's a TV and a DVD player if you want to catch a movie. Wi-Fi is also available and board games, books and magazines are provided for offline fun.

The galley-style kitchen sits next door and affords lovely views to the mature rear gardens. You'll find all the usual mod cons including a dishwasher, fridge, oven with ceramic hob and microwave. The cupboards are extremely well stocked with all the utensils and crockery you'll need to rustle up a fantastic meal.

Just around the corner is a further utility area home to a downstairs loo, freezer, washing machine and gorgeous Belfast sink, perfect for washing off muddy boots after a day's walking on the moors. There is also a large larder area to store all your bits and pieces.

The kitchen opens up into the spacious dining room, an incredibly homely room which whisks you back in time. Enjoy a long leisurely breakfast, mulling over the morning papers with the smell of bacon frying in the background, a mug of Yorkshire tea in hand of course! A stereo provides the soundtrack and an open fire lends atmosphere for your evening meal.

Both bedrooms and the family bathroom are upstairs. The master bedroom features a king-size bed to stretch out on and a very sweet twin room with two single beds sits next door. You get a real sense of the history of the cottage in both bedrooms with exposed beams overhead and low-level stone frame windows. You'll find lots of built-in storage in each and both rooms look out towards the pretty village.

The bathroom is at the end of the landing, a good-sized room offering a bath with hand held shower. Perfect for a long hot soak after exploring the surrounding countryside!

There is much to love outside too. To the front is a large lawned garden which looks out towards the village and beyond. The star of the show is the large mature rear gardens which come complete with apple trees and a good-sized terrace for al fresco dining. A charming little summer house sits at the top of the garden and is the perfect spot for an afternoon glass of Rose.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 king-size and 1 twin
  • 1 bathroom with a hand-held shower over the bath and 1 WC on the ground floor
  • Dishwasher, fridge, freezer, oven, microwave, washing machine
  • Wood burner in the lounge (first set of logs and kindling provided)

  • Wi-Fi included
  • Board games, books and magazines available

  • Ample off-road parking

The cottage is set within a picture-postcard village on the western reaches of the North York Moors. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, the lush pastures and woodlands of the western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market towns.

The village itself has a real Miss Marple feel, with the vibrant village of Osmotherley a couple of miles away. Well known as a starting point for walkers and cyclists, this gorgeous area could be out of a painting. It also offers excellent facilities including three pubs (two of which are fantastic gastro pubs), a cafe, village store and a fish and chip shop.

If you're a bit of a foodie, this part of Yorkshire is packed with fantastic gastro pubs, restaurants and delis. The beautiful market town of Helmsley (25 miles) is within driving distance and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering you'll find the Verbena Spa here, perfect for a little indulgence. There are also a host of charming independent shops as well as lots of options for dining, including a Michelin-starred restaurant.

The cottage is 7 miles away from the pretty market town of Northallerton where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street. The wonderful Betty's Tearooms is here as is a fantastic local deli, Lewis & Cooper's Food Emporium and of course the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers. Nearby Yarm (15 miles) is also well worth a visit.

This property is personally managed by Phil.

When we arrived at 4pm, admittedly the cottage was lovely and warm as the central heating is so efficient but I was looking forward to our 1st night in front of tRead morehe fire but there was no wood, firelighters or kindling so we had to go back out to get some. Lovely cottage, very well equipped fantastic location. I could live there ohh and 3 pubs we only tried 2 of them both were fantastic.

Response from Gorgeous Cottages:

Hi Angela.Thank you for your lovely review the owner is very happy that you had a such a great time that you could live there. The perfect compliment! There should be an initial supply of logs, kindling and firelighters to welcome all customer. It looks like there has been an oversight which will be looked in to, to make sure this doesn't happen again. How kind of you to mention the local pubs, the landlords will be over the moon! We hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future so please hurry back soon.Take Care. Marion Hide

Beautiful cottage, so peaceful, and fantastically furnished and equipped, so a real sanctuary! The weather was as you'd expect in December, so we weren't able to enjoy the garden fully, but it is large with a great patio area tucked away at the back of the cottage. The driveway right up to the property is also a great bonus for loading and unloadinRead moreg, and for a short hop from car to cottage if the weather is bad! It very quickly felt like 'home', which is exactly what we were looking for. The local village of Osmotherley has three thriving pubs and is very pretty, with the moors starting on its doorstep. A fantastic break. 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.
