This stylishly converted bijou-style property promises an unforgettable couple's retreat in a truly romantic setting, surrounded by spectacular countryside, picturesque villages, and the coast within an hour's drive.

This elegant cottage is an ideal escape for two in a location famous for its scenic walks, local delicacies, and towns steeped in history. Based on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales on a charming estate, you can enjoy an abundance of walks from your doorstep. Stroll to the nearby village for a hearty meal at one of the friendly pubs, or enjoy a leisurely browse in the deli and farm shop. The market town of Richmond is just 6 miles away, a haven for keen historians and foodies alike with a busy market square and Norman castle.

The cottage itself has retained its rustic charm whilst being completely unrecognisable from its former life as a storage space for farm produce and livestock. Featuring exposed stone walls, beams and authentic flooring, this open-plan property has been lovingly restored with a contemporary flair, maximising the use of space. Two arched doorways flood the single-level property with light by day, but by night they provide an irresistible opportunity for stargazing. To one end of the property is the quirky kitchen area, perfectly equipped for rustling up decadent meals for two, enjoyed by candlelight at the breakfast-bar-style table. There's also a cosy sofa ideal for curling up together in front of a good film with a glass of wine in hand. Discover the sumptuous bedroom at the opposite end of the property, a luxurious retreat complete with four-poster bed and glamorous furniture. The en-suite wet room is located adjacent to the bedroom, carefully screened for privacy.

Feel like a film star sinking into the soothingly warm hot tub, sipping a glass of fizz on a chilly winter night. Tucked in your own private garden at the back of the property, it's a delightful treat and wonderfully secluded. To the front of the property you'll find the large shared courtyard, a pleasant spot to bask in the sun with a pot of fresh coffee.

The property has a beautiful location set within a large estate on the cusp of the Yorkshire Dales. With the coast and the city of York within driving distance, it's an ideal basecamp from which to strike out and discover these unique Yorkshire locations. Reeth (15 miles) and the stunning landscapes of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale (22 miles) are also within easy reach, and its well-placed for a day trip over the Lakes if you want to explore there too.

The property is set on the edge of a very pretty village. There's a great dining pub just a short walk away and if you're a bit of a foodie there are several more excellent dining pubs in the area as well as a deli, tea room and farm shop. It's also the perfect location if you enjoy walking: there are lots of beautiful walks from the doorstep and in fact, it's well known as a great starting point for walking - seasoned walkers come from miles around to set off from the village.

This stunning Yorkshire Cottage is just 4 miles away from Richmond, a historic market town with much to offer the discerning holidaymaker. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. Just a short drive through Richmond takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales proper. Head up towards Reeth and on towards Hawes in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside.

North of the cottage is the charming town of Barnard Castle (12 miles). Recently listed as one of the top 10 places to live in the UK, it's a pretty little place with a host of shops, cafes and pubs to explore. The excellent Bowes Museum is here and is well worth a visit. And as the name would suggest there's a historic castle to explore too.

Further south, you'll find the pretty market town of Northallerton (20 miles) where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street. The wonderful Betty's Tearooms is here as is a fantastic local deli, Lewis & Cooper's Food Emporium and of course the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers.

To take in the North York Moors head further south still and brave it up Sutton Bank, the view from the top said by some to be the finest in all of England. The gorgeous market town of Helmsley makes for the perfect pit-stop. If you feel like a spot of pampering, there's also a fantastic spa just a few miles down the road.

This is a lovely place in a beautiful setting. It's a small property but was ideal for just the two of us. The owner was very friendly and helpful. A short walk to the village gave easy access to good food outlets, and other places are short drives away. The hot tub was fab to relax in after a hard day's walking in Swaledale!

Our stay at the mill store was lovely. The cottage is romantic and cosy although we hadn't realised the toilet was also open plan in the bedroom!
