As the original founders of Gorgeous Cottages, Yorkshire’s first luxury holiday cottage agency, my husband Phil & I have been privileged to represent some of the very finest self-catering holiday cottages this region has to offer. As we watched that business grow and flourish, we started to dream of one day being able to welcome guests to our own small collection of luxury retreats.

In 2019 the stars aligned when we found a larger company we could trust to take our original brand forward. Later that year we decided the time was right to bid a very fond farewell and launch Yorkshire Velvet. We’re right at the start of our mission to find, refurbish and introduce you to what we hope will be truly unique holiday homes in beautiful locations across Yorkshire.

I hope you can join us on our journey, I can’t wait to see where it will take us!
