Northern England region

Situated in the north east of England, the area has a varied landscape, ranging from rugged moorland and wooded valleys of the North Yorks Moors to quaint seaside resorts on the north east coast and rolling hills, rivers and waterfalls of the Yorkshire Dales.

The region is dotted with historical cities, castles and stately homes. The famous Lyke Wake Walk runs through the region which is a haven for walkers and the area is also popular for cyclists. The North York Moors railway operates steam trains from Whitby to Pickering and has been made famous by it's connections to the Harry Potter films and the Heartbeat TV series as well as the spectacular scenery. Captain James Cook's connections to the area can be seen in and around the Whitby area and further afield and the famous Wensleydale cheese originates in the Dales. Local vet Alf Wight whose books and TV series were so captivating is celebrated at 'The World of James Herriot' museum in Thirsk.

The Harrogate Flower Festival and The Great Yorkshire Show are among many festivals, shows and events to take place annually and The Tour De France took place here in July 2014. The Swaledale Music Festival is held in May/June and the British Touring Car Championships takes place at Croft Circuit in June. Catterick, Thirsk and Ripon Races operate horse racing events throughout the season.

Slightly further north, two major events the Sunderland Airshow and the Sunderland Kite Show are both held in July.


Appleton Wiske is a small village set in a rural location. The nearest towns are Northallerton 9 miles, Yarm 7mls and Darlington 12mls. The house is located on the edge of the village overlooking fields to the front and rear. The village has a large playing field next to the river with a children's play area and small skate park, also a large field for ball sports. Local attractions [within 15mls] include the pretty village of Osmotherley on the edge of the North Yorks Moors [6mls], Mount Grace Priory - a well preserved Carthusian monastery [6mls] Thorpe Perrow Arboretum and Falconry Centre [15mls], Preston Park Butterfly World and Victorian Street Museum [12mls], Stewart Park and Captain Cook Museum Middlesbrough [15mls], Croft Racing Circuit [6mls], Northallerton Leisure centre - swimming pool [9mls], Tees Barrage Whitewater Rafting Centre [15mls], Cinemas, bowling and Casino - Teesside Park [12mls]

"Excellent hosts,excellent cottage"

Over the past few years we have rented at least 12 cottages and we keep a wee book and rate them. This cottage came second in our wee book of rating cottages we have stayed at ,the hosts Wendy and David were really helpful and made us feel very welcome, nice little touches on arrival. The cottage itself was very comfortable and the bed was probably the best one we have slept in including our own, you definitlely need a car as the wee village although it was nice didn't have much going for it, also the weather wasn't great but cant blame that on anyone, the two days we went to York and Whitby were nice so cant complain too much ,but we did enjoy our holiday despite the weather Bill and Deb

Thank you for your kind review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

This is a perfect self catering holiday home with everything just right.The accomodation is superb and complete with all the items you would ever need. A lovely comfortable bed (or beds according to your needs) in a fine spacious bedroom and a nicely furnished conservatory added greatly to our stay.We could not have wished for nicer kindly and friendly people than the owners Wendy and Dave.Nothing was too much trouble for them.Enjoyed our stay immensely.Take my advice and book it while you can.

Thank you for a lovely review, it was a pleasure having you as guests.

"Perfect Holiday"

Just returned from a weeks stay in Ardenia.
We were given a warm welcome by the owners.
The cottage was clean,spacious and decorated to a high standard.
The owners had thought of everything you could require for a perfect holiday.
The location of Ardenia was excellent although there were 3 pubs/restaurants within walking distance and a local shop,the cottage was situated in a very peaceful and relaxing location.
Outwith the area,the towns of Northallerton and Richmond were both approx.30minutes drive away with good shopping,restaurants,pubs and local markets.
We would definitely recommend this holiday property and we hope to return in the Autumn.

Thank you for a lovely review. It was a pleasure having you as our first guests.
