Property code: G0174

Situated in a small hamlet in the North York Moors, there are 600 square miles of stunning, heather-coated countryside waiting to be discovered by foot or by car

This handsome three-bedroom farmhouse which has been transformed into an elegant and luxurious holiday cottage, just happens to be set within one of the prettiest spots in the North York Moors.

The honey-coloured stone of the cottage is very typical of this area of the moors and lends itself beautifully to the lush greens and purples of the moorland all around. Step inside to discover a stylish refurbishment which has retained all of the property's inherent character. Throughout you'll find original features like the fantastic cast-iron fireplace in the kitchen and stone trough in the downstairs bathroom. Throw in 21st-century luxuries like underfloor heating and you might just have yourself the perfect luxury Yorkshire cottage.

Downstairs you'll find the kitchen and dining area, a bright and spacious room which blends the contemporary and traditional perfectly. The kitchen is fully stocked and includes everything you would expect of a cottage at this standard. There is a dishwasher and washer/dryer and children's crockery/cutlery too. If you haven't had time to get to the shops before reaching the cottage, you'll arrive to a fantastic welcome hamper to get you started with fresh bread, biscuits, eggs, and a bottle of wine among your essentials.

The classically-styled sitting room is next door to the kitchen. Light up the wood burner, pour yourself a glass of wine and settle down on the cosy tartan armchair with a good book. Or stretch out on the sofa and watch a movie. There are lots of extras to keep you entertained including the large LCD TV and Wi-Fi.

Downstairs houses a handy utility room, perfect for drying off your walking/cycling gear or stripping down muddy kids. There also a large family bathroom with a feature roll-top bath, a lovely way to end a busy day's sightseeing, and a separate walk-in shower.

Head upstairs to the generous sized bedrooms, one king-size, one double and a twin room with single beds. All of the bedrooms are dressed in the finest cotton bed linen and boast warm wooden floors, LCD TVs and stylish faux-fur throws. There is another family bathroom up here, again with a bath and separate walk-in shower. Complimentary toiletries are provided for your convenience.

Outside the cottage you'll find a large lawned garden and stone patio. Garden furniture is provided so you can enjoy lunch alfresco in the warmer months. The cottage is set in a very quiet hamlet so all around you are the sights and sounds of the North York Moors. Just heavenly.

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

The cottage is set in a pretty little hamlet (complete with a local pub) in the heart of the North York Moors National Park. This particular dale is famed for its daffodil walk when each spring the river banks come alive with the yellow flowers, said to be planted originally by the monks who settled on this land many hundreds of years ago.

Lesser known than its Yorkshire cousin the Dales, the North York Moors are literally on your doorstep. This glorious expanse of heather-clad countryside is simply stunning, and it's well worth taking some time to explore it properly. The moors cover an area of almost 600 square miles and like the dales you can easily find yourself miles from anywhere relatively quickly. But there is something distinctly more civilised and less remote about the moors. There is a sense of wilderness, particularly on top of the high central moorlands, but it’s cast in comforting soft focus.

This is serious walking country, so if you enjoy donning the old walking boots and striking out into the countryside this cottage has the perfect location. No need to get in the car at all, there are some truly breath-taking walking trails from the door. And of course the same is true for cycling. There are also countless picture-card villages to explore within a few miles including the chocolate-box Hutton-le-Hole (6 miles).

Close by you also have the fantastic town of Helmsley (15 miles). At the heart of the town square is a statue of Lord Feversham, a distant ancestor of the current Lord who resides in Duncombe Park. This stunning baroque mansion sits on the outskirts of town and is a good choice for an afternoon's sightseeing. If you want to indulge some more architectural desires, the equally grand Nunnington Hall fifteen miles away is another grand abode worth a peek.

Helmsley is a foodie’s heaven, packed with exquisite tea rooms, cafes and on the pulse organic delis. It's also surrounded by some of the best gastro pubs in the UK. Tucked alongside these culinary delights are lots of unique shops, galleries and antique dealers, just the spot to build up an appetite for lunch.

The neighbouring town of Pickering (18 miles) is similar in many ways and is host to its own delightful set of shops, cafes and restaurants. A few miles further on takes you to Thornton-Le-Dale (18 miles), a very pretty North York Moors village with thatched houses and a sleepy little brook. Stop for some ice cream here and remind yourself what life in the slow lane feels like.

The cottage was sparkiling clean, very well equiped and very comfortable. I have already recommended it to friends. We had a great long weekend celebrating my husband's 70th birthday. We had lovely walks and spent some pleasant time drinking well-kept beer in the pub 5 steps across the raod.

This is a lovely well appointed cottage in a wonderful location. We enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing stay mid September and a bonus was having a pub a few steps away which served good meals with friendly and welcoming hosts.

Beautiful cottage in small group of holiday lets - all beautifully restored old cottages/barns. Wonderful location in tiny hamlet on heart of the north York moors. Ideal for walking and exploring the area.

Beautifully appointed cottage in a lovely location with stunning views and access to the moors. Relatively isolated but with a pub opposite and easy travelling to Kirkbymoorside, Pickering, the wonderful market town of Helmsley and Whitby & the coast.

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.
