Tucked away in a tranquil position with the sound of the beck trickling nearby, this refurbished cottage is perfect for families and friends looking to immerse themselves in the Yorkshire countryside.

Set beside the River Wharfe with impressive views of the steep hillside and sitting at the foot of Great Whernside sits the charming village of Kettlewell. Kettlewell is a friendly village offering two gastro pubs, a village store, a garage and a couple of tea rooms. Walkers are spoilt for choice with some of the best walking in the Dales, from energetic fell walking to a gentle stroll along the river. Cyclists can explore quiet country lanes lined with dry stone walls and peaceful Dales villages. Visit Grassington, famed for its summer festival and Dickensian Christmas celebrations, or the historic market town of Skipton, with its Norman castle and award-winning high street hosting a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Step inside the entrance vestibule, hang up your coat and leave your boots on the shoe rack. You won't help but notice the toasty warm floor and inviting space around which is generously lit and tastefully furnished, yet has kept true to its charming history. This open-plan kitchen/diner is a wonderful socialising space with a large wood burner at its heart. Within the kitchen area, is a range style electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Sit at the breakfast bar, wine in hand as the chef of the group rustles up a hearty meal. Take your meal over to the dining table which comfortably seats up to eight. Come together for after-dinner games at the table. There is a handy utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer, essential if you have children running about in muddy fields! After a busy day head into the cosy lounge with a wood burner and relax into the plush comfy sofa. There is a Smart TV for your entertainment or simply read a good book. Completing the ground floor is a wet room with a shower and WC. When it's time to turn in, climb the stairs to the first floor, there are three bedrooms, a king-size overlooking the rear garden with an en-suite shower and WC, and two super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as a twin on request) with views out to the babbling beck and hills beyond. The bathroom has an impressive freestanding bath, separate shower and WC.

Step outside to the enclosed patio, a lovely spot for your morning coffee at the table listening to the sounds of your rural surroundings. A raised lawn area can be accessed via some stone steps, throw down a blanket and enjoy a picnic while basking in the warm sunshine. A permit is available for the village public car park.

Beckside is a dream! The kitchen, and the kingsize beds, beautiful bed linen, towels, showers etc - I could go on!!! The attention to detail is fantastic.

Beckside is an absolutely fabulous holiday home. We were blown away by the top-rate quality of everything about the place - fixtures, fittings and equipment all first class. We were six adults staying there, and each couple had their own bathroom or en suite, and there was more than enough crockery, glasses, cooking utensils and cutlery to mean we Read moredidn't have to have the dishwasher on every five minutes.

Harrogate is a thriving, historic town at the heart of North Yorkshire and at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This fantastic town is a hit with culturists, historians and holidaymakers alike. Dubbed ‘The English Spa’ in 1596, the town boasts spa water high in iron, sulphur and salt. The Royal Pump Room is still open today as a museum, showcasing the original equipment that was used in its heyday. Two other major draws to the town are the Harrogate Convention Centre and the Great Yorkshire Showground. The former is a multi-purpose venue large enough to house huge conventions and business conferences. Many of the events are fan-based like the Lego-themed attractions and comic-cons. The latter is an outdoor venue that hosts even large events and shows, namely the agricultural Great Yorkshire Show.

Fancy a day of walking? Head to the Valley Gardens, home to a multitude of landscaped gardens that embrace different styles and influence. For further horticultural foray, head to the RHS Garden, Harlow Carr. The stunning gardens provide a leafy retreat where you can wander through woodland and alongside waterways.

The town centre is home to an array of boutique fashion shops, as well as high street favourites in and around the Victoria Shopping Centre. The Montpellier Quarter also offers exclusive shops and a huge range of antique dealers, ideal for hunting out a unique bargain. This fashionable spa town also plays host to many Michelin-starred restaurants too.

There is a host of places to visit and spend time at in and around Harrogate. We have a selection of holiday homes that include chic apartments, elegant townhouses and cosy cottages for romantic stays to inspire your break in Harrogate. Why not visit our collection to find your perfect property?
