An idyllic rural retreat for a solo adventurer or a couple, this delightful property oozes tranquillity and boasts direct access to the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

Overlooking the magnificent Esk Valley, this pretty property offers plenty to do both near and far. Only 300 yards from the front door, Eskdale Fisheries serves mouth-watering fish and chips and less than half a mile away, the Plough Inn offers up an extensive menu of hearty fodder and refreshing drink. For your morning paper and a pint of milk, the village shop is 0.5 miles away. For a breath of salty, sea air and a wander along the beach, drive 4.5 miles to Whitby and stare out at the North Sea. When inland adventures call, Falling Foss waterfall in Little Beck Wood is only 4 miles away and the incredible Hole of Horcum is 9 miles away.

Heading down a few steps you will come to your country retreat, a bijou studio apartment stylishly parcelling everything you could need into one cleverly thought-out space. Located on the lower ground floor next door to another attractive holiday home, this little haven offers views, privacy and tranquillity. Sporting neutral tones and attractive decorations, the open-plan design creates an intimate yet spacious feel. Just the right size for a couple looking for a romantic getaway, the lounge comes equipped with a comfortable sofa and armchair and boasts picturesque views from double patio doors. Also equipped with a wood burner, reading materials, Smart TV, wireless Bluetooth speakers and an iPad, you can plug in or disconnect as you please. For feasts at home, the kitchen has all the utensils you could need, including an oven and hob. Enjoy your morning coffee at the breakfast bar and sit across from each other at the dining table for a romantic dinner. Behind the main living area, the plush king-size bed awaits. With a comfy pocket-sprung mattress, you can sink into a deep and restful sleep each night. Found in a separate room, the bathroom has a big bath and walk-in power-shower, as well as complimentary toiletries and super fluffy towels. For your convenience, there is also a laundry room that doubles as a storage space.

Stepping out through the French doors, a private stone patio takes in magnificent views of the Eskdale Valley. Watch steam trains roll along far below as you sip a cool G&T in the sunshine. A small, enclosed garden provides a great space for your dog and the BBQ is great fun in the summer.

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

Every tiny detail has been considered, from the washer & drier in the laundry room, the fridge/freezer & dishwasher even down to a breadmaker and handmixer; from the luxurious underfloor heating, the sumptuous bath and shower, beautifully decorated interiors down to the dvd & book libraries, wealth of information on local activities & dog friendly Read moreplaces and the amazing hampers for us and for our dog.

The view at the back is to die for, it is wonderful. It is in a small village about 10 minutes drive from Whitby. There is a fish and chip shop at the end of the lane. Do try the butchers in the village as they have a deli section. The cottage was top class, with a welcome hamper for us and one for our dog. We wanted for nothing during our stay. GeRead moreoff was very helpful and friendly and on hand to do odd jobs. Hide

Excellent place for a relaxing holiday, everything you need is in the cottage. When we arrived there was a beautiful hamper for us and one for our dog and the owners had baked us some bread. The only thing that was missing on our break was the sun which sadly cannot be booked.

The cowslip Retreat was significantly smaller than we thought it would be for us really and probably a tad too expensive for its size.

Three times we have stayed here, the views, the locality of the cottage, everything really, brings us back time after time.

This cottage was beautiful, in a wonderful setting, and really helpful owner. However we had a family staying in accommodation above - unfortunately very noisy in morning and evening, did detract from our otherwise perfect stay.
