Luxurious ... Tranquil ... Beautiful ...

Discover the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales based from a luxury 18th century holiday cottage in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Explore the endless beautiful scenery that is 'Distinctly Dales' and the tranquil serenity that is largely untouched by the passage of time.

In this naturally preserved setting, you will find your idyllic multi-award-winning ‘Cottage in the Dales’, including best self-catering in Yorkshire & England and best inclusive tourism building in England & Wales. These 5 Star Gold cottages are perfect for the discerning visitor requiring both quality & luxury in a rural idyll where original charm & character in these stylish period properties are carefully blended with the facilities of modern life. Each cottage has its own unique appeal…as individual as you.

We are proud to deliver a 'luxury 5 star experience, without the inconvenience of other guests'! Just like a top hotel, nothing is too much trouble & no detail overlooked. From a warmly-lit fire & premium toiletries, to the best local produce, electric car charging and accessible & inclusive facilities if you need them. Our aim is to ensure you feel at home, whether you are coming for the first time, or returning for the tenth. We will happily take you to one of our personally recommended pubs or restaurants for that special occasion, even on Christmas Day, or just simply recommend a suitable walk - our pleasure is ensuring yours.

Whether you’re looking for a winter warmer weekend away, a mid-week break, a summer holiday, half-term holiday with the children, take a tour of the photos, videos & detailed descriptions of each cottage to decide which cottage to choose, checkout our guest reviewspress coverage and awards,  view our availability & prices and book online or via post. Then all you have to do is to discover what is 'Distinctly Dales' and the experiences you'd like to explore whilst out and about in the Yorkshire Dales. A holiday here is a pleasure at any time of the year. That’s why couples and families return again and again.

What our guests say

"First visit and Dairy cottage exceeded all our expectations greatly, aided by a brief spell of summer to enjoy the patio and garden. Such a wonderful relaxing space and all our accessibility needs were met. Best cottage we have stayed in! We will look forward to coming again. Thank you both for making us so welcome!"
Guests from Holmfirth, West Yorkshire | July 2024
