Perfect for two, this charming cottage in North Devon has been thoughtfully furnished for a relaxing break, with a wood burner for cosy evenings. Located nearby to the village of Thirsk (1 mile), you'll be able to immerse yourself in life as a local, soaking up the beautiful Georgian architecture and indulging in the fine eateries.

You’ll experience the property’s character from the moment you set eyes on the front door, with its beautiful exposed brick front and traditional windows. Inside, the living room is a lovely space to unwind, with two leather sofas by the wood burner offering a place to rest your legs. Next door, the modern kitchen has everything you’ll need to fix up a feast for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a quirky bench-style dining booth. Completing the ground floor is the bathroom with a wood-panelled bathtub and overhead shower. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, decorated in neutral tones with a TV for evening entertainment, whilst the other is a twin, ideally suited to children. At the rear of the property, there is a small courtyard which has shared access with a neighbouring property.

For a taste of city life, head to York (23 miles) and visit the Minster and city walls, amongst other fascinating historic buildings, as you explore the streets. There are also a plethora of walks from the city, from Clifford’s Tower to the National Trust’s Treasurer’s House. Embark on a day of romance in the spa town of Harrogate (26 miles) where you enjoy a pamper session, or stroll through the blissful gardens at RHS Harlow Carr before stopping off at the iconic Bettys Tea Room for a treat.

A very quaint cottage in a beautiful village.Everything you need is provided and well equipped. The log burner is a bonus on a very cold night and the proximity to a lovely local pub.A simple flat walk takes you straight into thirsk where you'll find many pubs and eateries and all you need for a perfect stay.

A very pretty , well equipped cottage in a very picturesque street. Easy walking distance to Thirsk which is a great market town with shops, pubs, takeaways and cafes. Very steep staircase which could be difficult with small children. Perfectly positioned to explore the beautiful Yorkshire dales.
