Bright and airy, this chocolate-box cottage has a peaceful garden and spacious interiors for family gatherings. Tucked away in the sleepy village of Bagby, this handsome property is surrounded by miles of gorgeous countryside just waiting to be explored. It even boasts a pub less than a mile away for those after-dinner drinks.

With relaxation and serenity at the heart of the accommodation, this home-from-home promises cosy spaces, thoughtful touches, and a garden that truly makes the most of its enviable location. Drop your bags down in the boot room, a handy spot for coats and walking shoes, and wander through to the kitchen/diner, where you can begin to rustle up a feast on the Aga. Mismatched chairs, pretty units and well-equipped cupboards make this shabby-chic kitchen a joy to behold. Break open a bottle of wine out in the charming, enclosed garden where a large lawn offers space for dogs and youngsters to roam as they please. Stoke up the wood burner in the cosy lounge at the end of the night and pick a film to watch on the Smart TV. When heads begin to nod, go upstairs to one of three lovely bedrooms, all boasting gorgeous views of the beautifully kept garden. Choose from the king-size, double or twin rooms, which are all decorated with fresh, vibrant interiors and make use of a stylish shower room and separate bathroom.

Embrace the slower pace of Yorkshire life by spending your mornings venturing along the nearby bridleway, which will lead you on a memorable route through flora and fauna. Children will love visiting the award-winning Monk Park Farm (2 miles), where you and your little ones can feed the lambs and baby goats and get up close with the wallabies and local deer. The characterful market town of Thirsk is just 2 miles away and offers plenty to do, see, and eat.
