Escape to this tastefully styled retreat for two, nestled in a peaceful and private estate. Markington is ideally situated for exploring all of Yorkshire's splendid countryside. Lying between Harrogate (7 miles) and Ripon (6 miles), this location is an ideal base to explore the Yorkshire Dales to the west and the North York Moors and Yorkshire Coast to the east. The village itself offers a small store and a pub. Local attractions include Fountains Abbey, Ripley Castle, Mother Shiptons Cave and the amazing rock formations of Brimham Rocks. You could explore Knaresborough Castle and Almscliffe Crag, or visit Pateley Bridge, home of England’s oldest sweet shop and the fascinating Nidderdale Museum, all within 12 miles. The fascinating, historic cathedral city of York (26 miles) promises a fun-packed day. Stroll around the castle walls and through the cobbled 'Shambles', York’s famous medieval street popular with Harry Potter fans is said to have been the inspiration for Diagon Alley.

Escape to a romantic haven in the form of a one-bedroom holiday cottage, adorned with classic interior touches that exude timeless charm. The open-plan living space offers a breathtaking view of rolling pastureland, creating a serene backdrop for your getaway. The modern kitchen is generously equipped, allowing you to indulge your culinary desires, while the adjacent dining area invites intimate meals for two. The lounge area beckons you with its inviting log burner, perfect for cosy evenings spent together whilst watching a film on the Smart TV or simply stream your chosen music through the Bluetooth speaker. Should you wish to have some quiet time, there are plenty of books to choose from on the open bookshelves. When it's time to get some sleep, head upstairs to a spacious bedroom that welcomes you with sumptuous bedding, ensuring a restful night's sleep. And when it comes time to pamper yourself, the gorgeous bathroom awaits, complete with a walk-in shower and a luxurious roll-top bath. This one-bedroom holiday cottage is the epitome of perfection for couples seeking a romantic retreat amidst idyllic surroundings.
Step through the doors onto the terrace, where you can unwind and soak in the picturesque countryside vistas. Enjoy breakfasts, lunches or romantic evening meals at the table outside toasting to your Yorkshire getaway. The Hob Green also offers extensive gardens that can be explored during your stay, with a large vegetable plot, flower boarders, sitting areas, and paths that lead to local walks. There is a car park for guests with an EV available for hybrid or all-electric cars.
