Family-sized holiday cottages in Yorkshire are outstanding value for Half Term with a week’s holiday for four from as little as £386 and savings of over £100 on selected properties.
For example, West Cottage in a beautiful, rural spot in the Yorkshire Dales National Park is now discounted for a seven-night stay starting Friday 21 or Saturday 22 October, from £752 to £611, saving an impressive £141.
One of three redundant farm buildings at the top of a rough farm track, West Cottage has panoramic views over Swaledale. The immediate area offers footpaths for hiking, and the bustling village of Reeth is just three miles away for pubs, shops and tea rooms.
The beautiful stone building, Grade II Listed, accommodates a family of five and the family pet at no extra charge. A double room with ensuite shower and wc is perfect for parents, a second large room has flexible zip’n’link beds to create a twin and there’s a single room.
Sensitive renovation includes limestone flags downstairs and wooden floors upstairs, a wood-burning stove in an inglenook, and a farmhouse-style kitchen/diner.
Other family-sized properties currently still available for Half Term dates include The Waiting Room, a two-bedroom, pet-friendly cottage in the Lune Valley (was £466 for the week starting 22 October, now reduced to £386) and Pretoria Cottage in Gunnerside, reduced from £472 to £402 for a family of four.
