Stunning five-star property sleeping two guests, an idyllic location for a romantic getaway in beautiful North Yorkshire, within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors.

This property is situated in the village of Sinderby in North Yorkshire, just a short drive from the cathedral city of Ripon. This attractive town is not only home to the magnificent cathedral, but also is home to a range of interesting sights and attractions, including the Workhouse Museum, Fountains Abbey, and Ripon Spa Gardens. The city is also on the Way of the Roses cycle route, offering traffic free cycling through some spectacular countryside, passing many interesting sights. Slightly further afield, but still within easy driving distance, there are plenty of other places of interest to keep visitors busy including Lightwater Valley Theme Park, the spa town of Harrogate, and the Yorkshire Outdoors outdoor pursuits centre.

This five-star, single storey property makes an excellent choice for a couple’s break, offering far more space and privacy than a hotel room, making for a more relaxing break. On arrival at the contemporary cottage, guests will come first to the impressively spacious lounge/kitchen/diner, with its large floor-to-ceiling windows and vaulted ceiling. In the lounge area there is plenty of comfortable seating which is arranged so that guests can easily relax and unwind in front of the cosy wood burner and TV/DVD. At the other end of the room, the kitchen area has a large dining table seating six and is well-equipped to a high standard with a Range-style oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. The bedroom, like the living area, is generously-sized and offers a king-size bed which can be made up as a twin on request, as well as a Smart TV, and a sanctuary-like en-suite bathroom with a shower-over-spa bath and WC. Robes are also provided.

Outside, the property enjoys a patio with a table, chairs, and a BBQ, which provides the perfect space for enjoying the property’s tranquil surroundings. Guests are also welcome to explore the owner’s farm, following a designated route which takes in the hen house where guests are able to collect fresh eggs. There is off-road parking provided.

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

The attractive town of Bedale (8.5 miles) is always worth a visit. Stop for a coffee before making your way around the town's antique shops and independent boutiques. Foodies will be delighted by the range of local produce, including beers and cheeses on offer.

The vibrant cathedral city of Ripon (9 miles) boasts a Thursday market, numerous coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and a nice collection of independent shops to explore. The cathedral is smaller than its close neighbour, York Minster, but is still an awe-inspiring sight. In addition, every night for at least 450 years the Ripon Hornblower has sounded the curfew at 9pm from all four sides of the obelisk in the market place, come rain or shine, followed by a 15-minute history of the ceremony and the city – an experience not to be missed! If you are partial to a flutter, Ripon Race Ground has around 15 meets from April to early September. Known as 'Yorkshire's Garden Racecourse' it has a distinct atmosphere harking back to a bygone era – traditional tea rooms and bandstands sit alongside the champagne bar.

This area of Yorkshire has enough historical sites to keep you busy for a week with Ripley Castle (16.5 miles), Newby Hall (12 miles) and Norton Conyers (5.5 miles). Visit lovely Fountains Abbey and the gorgeous Studley Royal Water Garden, 12.5 miles away – this World Heritage site is deservedly one of the National Trust's most visited locations. As well as the spectacular ruins of a 12th-century Cistercian abbey, the grounds are home to an Elizabethan mansion, a medieval deer park and some of the most romantic vistas in the country.

Harrogate (20 miles) is an absolute must-visit if you're staying here. Encircled by its famous Stray, or 200 acres, of horseshoe-shaped grassland, the Victorian spa town of Harrogate has a bright and breezy open-air feel and is characterised by its impressive floral displays. And as you would expect of such a bustling upbeat town, Harrogate boasts over 300 bars and restaurants together with all the shops, cinemas, parks and gardens you could ever wish for.

The vibrant little village of Osmotherley (18 miles) on the western side of the North York Moors is well-known as a starting point for walkers and cyclists. This gorgeous little place is real picture-postcard stuff. It also offers excellent facilities including a cafe, village stores and a fish and chip shop. If you're a bit of a foodie, this part of Yorkshire is packed with fantastic gastropubs, restaurants and delis.

The cottage is a home from home with everything you could need to be on hand. The owner is very friendly and can give good local advice on where to go with a lovely welcome lemon drizzle cake.

Our second visit to Wyandotte and it felt like coming home. Everything you could possibly need for a lovely holiday. Cake, coffee, tea and milk for when you arrive. Very welcome. The weather wasnt good but Wyandottes log fire and underfloor heating made it a very cosy retreat to come back to. Daisy our dog loved the freedom of being able to walk thRead moree fields off her lead, just bring wellies if the weather is off. Chickens and two rescue rabbits too. We have already booked again for 2020. Hide

Our second visit at this lovely cottage. We suggested a few minor additions to kitchen equipment, but other than that this is a great place to stay with comfort and cleanliness having being made a priority. Owners, Phil and Jim very helpful and welcoming. We hope to be back for a third visit before long, so thats a good recommendation!

Reviewed by John 13th September 2019

The cottage is delightful and the facilities and decor are excellent with considerable thought given to its presentation which was faultless. My wife who uses a wheelchair when out and about found moving around the cottage with sticks reasonably easy due to the level floor which has no steps throughout. The car parking space is very near to the dooRead morer to the cottage and the short path is level with the internal floor. The luxurious spa bath is quite deep and this proved a slight challenge.

A fantastic cottage! The family are so welcoming and the cottages are lovely. You are welcome to wander over to the chickens on the farm and collect eggs and they now have two lovely rescue bunnies who you can see! This was our second time visiting, this time in the Wyandotte cottage & we would definitely come again!

Excellent cottage well presented and equipped. Very spacious and relaxing. Very handy for visiting local towns, villages and attractions. We will be back even if its to feed the cute farm tame rabbits!
