An idyllic retreat set within a peaceful village in the Yorkshire Dales, offering a tranquil getaway and set close to a number of bustling cities and towns waiting to be explored.

Located in a lovely rural location, yet just 4.5 miles from the vibrant cathedral city of Ripon and 15 miles from the cosmopolitan Harrogate, this retreat offers the best of both worlds and can be enjoyed by small groups and families alike. But that's not all, the cottage sits between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the picturesque Howardian Hills which borders the North York Moors National Park. So, when it comes to all manners of outdoor pursuits, you can take your pick as to which direction to head in. Of course, you are surrounded by gentle countryside, so you need not stray too far if you'd prefer to stay close to home.


Make your way to the cottage through a pretty courtyard and step inside the French doors into a beautiful open-plan living area, the hub of your home from home. The warming tones of the furnishings and original artwork gives the space its welcoming atmosphere and character. The lounge area offers plenty of space for the whole group to cosy up in front of the wood burner and watch some TV of an evening. The traditional galley kitchen is home to all the amenities you'll need to cook up a hearty meal before sitting down to experience family dining at the chunky wooden dining table, bathed in sunlight from the French doors. Make your way upstairs to find two wonderfully finished bedrooms, the master is home to a French king-size and en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is a sweet twin room boasting an en-suite shower room.


Step outside into a charming courtyard garden complete with a patio area and garden furniture, perfect for dogs and children alike. During the summer months, fire up the BBQ and enjoy some al fresco dining in the Yorkshire countryside. Sit outside of a morning with only the sound of birdsong for company as you sip your coffee; the most perfect start to your day. The cottage also offers off-road parking.

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

Lovely cottage very clean very quiet & rural so must have a car, lovely walks for the dog. Owner very friendly, dog and us made very welcome, lots of tourist attractions within a 4 mile radius including ripon and our only recommendation is central heating must be accessible by holidaymaker for winter lets and not set and fixed. Would think its a peRead morerfect cottage in summer and tweaked heating system in winter for the price would make it better value. Hide
