This magnificent, stylish and spacious holiday home offers fantastic accommodation for a large family or a group of friends looking for a tranquil base for enjoying the North Yorkshire countryside.

Welcome to this quite magnificent six-bedroom and five-bathroom large luxury holiday home tucked away in a picture-postcard Yorkshire Dales village. With its handsome double-fronted exterior, generously proportioned bedrooms and wood-fired hot tub to enjoy, this property is just perfect for those magical family celebrations and special get-togethers.

Set over 3 elegant floors, the stunning Georgian facade of this holiday home gives way to a contemporary and comfortable home. Downstairs you'll find a large sitting room where peacock blue sofas gather around a roaring open fire. The house is extremely well equipped with underfloor heating as well as the latest technology including an LCD TV, a DVD Player and Wi-Fi, but who wants to be online when you have this gorgeous place to enjoy!

The sitting rooms leads through to a fabulous open-plan kitchen/dining room with original Yorkshire flagstone floors & upcycled church pews. The perfect spot for those laughter-filled family breakfasts each morning, or a few glasses of bubbly later on! The contemporary kitchen boasts a sleek black granite work-top, glossy white units, a dishwasher and an AGA to keep everyone warm and toasty. The cupboards are well stocked with everything you need to rustle up a family-sized dinner, and the open aspect allows you to enjoy a little company while you do so. Attached to the kitchen is a fabulous orangery providing a further formal dining space. Watch the stars twinkle above you as you settle down to a candlelit dinner stretching long into the night.

All six of the generous bedrooms in Willow House enjoy views over the village and each has been individually styled with feature beds. The first bedroom is on ground level; a double room with an en-suite wet room, ideally suited to anyone with reduced mobility. Bedrooms two, three and four are on the first floor, all doubles, with two and three sharing a family bathroom and bedroom four enjoying another en-suite wet room. The top floor of the house is home to bedrooms five and six - two fabulous master bedrooms with luxurious open-plan bathrooms featuring either a free standing bath or a large walk-in shower.

Back downstairs, throw open the double patio doors and step into the beautiful enclosed gardens. There's a sheltered patio area available for al fresco dining and to your right, the wonderful wood-fired hot tub is just waiting to be enjoyed. Take a dip under the moonlight and catch up with those you haven't seen for far too long.

This property is a truly unique and luxurious large holiday home with every modern comfort thrown in. Its central village location and gorgeous interiors make it one of Yorkshire's most sought-after properties, so why not make it your choice for that next big get-together?

Great property in a perfect location. Good sized bedroom with nice wet room showers. Dishwasher broke but was immediately fixed so thank you. Only gripes were: (1) on arrival crockery in the orangery room was dirty and (2) the property is advertised with seasoned Kiln Dried logs for the hot tub. As a tree surgeon they were not kiln dried as they haRead mored only just been cut so it was a nightmare trying to stoke up the small boiler for the hot tub. Hide

Stunning house, decorated to a very high standard and very well equipped. In particular the beds are extremely comfortable, bathrooms large and impressive and ample storage space. The village itself is very pretty with lovely walks from the front door and an excellent pub (White Swan). Our hosts were very helpful and welcoming - recommending local Read morepubs and walks, stocking the wood-fired hot tub and delivering a freshly cleaned barbecue as it was a sunny weekend Hide

Had a great stay at willow cottage the house is absolutely beautiful, the only downfall was the hot tub, because of the cold weather the hot tub was frozen and no amount of heating the fire made any difference to it, which was disappointing.

Response from Gorgeous Cottages:

Hi Yvonne, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Willow House. The water is heated by a log burner and once hot should remain heated if the fire is kept going. The owner will take look into why the water wasn't as hot as previous usage. We do hope to welcome you back to Yorkshire very soon. Take Care, Marion

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.
