Far from the Madding Crowd; our secluded Yorkshire Cottages

Life can be such a rush sometimes.  Children’s birthday parties, the weekly shop, working until the early hours, the school run – it all adds up to a pretty hectic life.

Sometimes I just yearn to get away from everything, to reconnect with nature and slow things down a little.  So every so often we pack up the kids and head for a secluded cottage holiday, somewhere we can truly switch off and relax.

I’m sure we are not alone so I’ve put together a collection of our most secluded Yorkshire Cottages – keep it handy, and the next time you feel the need to escape the rat race book one and go!

Secluded Cottages in Yorkshire from Gorgeous Cottages

Lovely Cottage

Lovely Cottage  Swaledale

Throw open your bedroom curtains to this view, breathe deeply and relax…Lovely Cottage is set high up in Swaledale close to the hamlet of Muker.  It offers superb walking from the doorstep, a hot tub to chill in and a cosy wood-burner to warm your toes at in the evenings.  Secluded but not isolated, the excellent Farmers Arms in Muker will welcome you with open arms…

Burtersett Cottage

Burtersett Cottage Wensleydale

Pitched in deepest Wensleydale, the drive to Burtersett Cottage alone is enough to ease the mind.  Stunning scenery all around, with lots of beautiful Yorkshire attractions within a short drive including Jervaulx Abbey, Asygarth Falls and Bolton Castle.  Bunker down in this pretty Yorkshire cottage with its open fire, cosy kitchen and spacious master bedroom.  The town of Hawes is just a few miles away if you feel the need to reconnect with civilisation at some point…

Partridge Cottage

Partridge Cottage North York Moors

 Set down a long and winding private road, Partridge Cottage affords some of the best views of the North York Moors… With only the noise of game birds to disturb you, a holiday in this stunning cottage is guaranteed to relax.  Strike out for a walk in the Moors before heading back to the cottage for a little snooze by the wood-burner.

Agra Cottage

Agra Cottage Yorkshire Dales

Enjoy the best of both worlds.  Agra Cottage is truly secluded, nestling happily in the grouse moors of Nidderdale.  As this is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you could just spend a few days taking in the view.  Or if you’re feeling a little more active try the 2 hour hike across the Moors to the Blue Lion – a fabulous Yorkshire gastro pub.  And again Agra Cottage is secluded without feeling isolated, with foodie Masham just a few miles drive.

The Lodge LHB

The Lodge LHB

An ideal choice if you want to take the family and escape.  Sleeping up to 9 people comfortably, The Lodge is located a few miles from Pateley Bridge, set high up in the Nidderdale Countryside above the town.  Accessed via a long bridleway it offers a true getaway from the world.  With only the local pheasants for company, you can walk for miles without meeting another sole…

The Retreat

The Retreat Sandsend

 Hidden away in the North York Moors just a few miles from Sandsend on the Yorkshire Coast, The Retreat lives up to its name by offering a sanctuary to anyone who stays here.  It’s a really fabulous holiday cottage, with sumptuous interiors, over an acre of award winning gardens and a sea-view all part of the package.  And after all that R & R you can wander down to Sandsend for a fabulous meal at the various restaurants there…

    Hi, do you have any totally isolated cottages, no neighbours at all, just countryside, wildlife, and lovely views. The more remote the better. We have a 4 x 4 so can manage rough tracks together to it.
    Thank you,
    Sylvia Illingsworth
