Set in a picturesque village in the Nidderdale region, this gorgeous 19th century cottage makes a wonderful rural retreat for couples looking to relax in some of Yorkshire's finest countryside.

Enjoy a rural retreat with a stay in the heart of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, exploring the eclectic surrounding area by day and resting and recharging in this stunning chocolate-box cottage by night. Perfectly suited to a group of friends or two couples travelling together, the romantic property happily sleeps four guests. With the endless selection of walks at your doorstep, you may want to bring some canine company along, and two dogs are welcome to stay with you.

This 19th century stone cottage has been lovingly updated to feature a welcoming interior, yet still retains plenty of original features that are full of character. Stop off in the contemporary kitchen/diner on arrival, checking out the generous hamper of local produce left out for you to enjoy. This space is well-appointed for both cooking and dining, with a lovely four-person dining table creating the perfect spot for meals together. The cosy lounge is a snug spot to unwind on an evening, with TV/DVD and a selection of games available to pass the time. When it’s time to retire you’ll find two beautiful bedrooms on the first floor, one of which is a versatile super king-size which can be made up as a twin. Both bedrooms offer TVs for those cosy evenings in or lazy mornings snoozing.

Set off on foot or by bike to explore the local area, taking in the unrivalled beauty of the Nidderdale AONB or the Yorkshire Dales (10 miles). Pack your walking boots for a trip to the stunning Brimham Rocks (11 miles) and be sure to take a trip to the unforgettable Malham Cove (24.5 miles). On lazier days, leave the boots at home and enjoy discovering local towns, visiting Skipton (22 miles), Knaresborough (20.5 miles) and Harrogate (19.5 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms, each with TV – 1 super king-size, 1 super king-size which can be made up as a twin room on request
  • 2 en-suite bathrooms, 1 with shower over bath
  • Dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, oven, microwave
  • Wood burner, TV, DVD, MP3 dock
  • Courtyard garden with BBQ
  • Welcome pack included
  • Wi-Fi included
  • 2 dogs welcome. As the cottage is set within the grounds of a shooting estate and beside farms with livestock it is very important that dogs are kept on a lead at all times
  • Pub within 0.5 miles
  • Shop within 6 miles
  • Pateley Bridge 7 miles
  • Parking available in the village car park

This holiday home is situated in a lovely location set in a gorgeous little hamlet in the heart of beautiful Nidderdale. Whichever direction you arrive at the cottage, the scenery will take your breath away. Enjoy the drive and soak up the countryside. The setting offers the best of both worlds - the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the cosmopolitan delights of Harrogate, 14 miles away. There are plenty of gorgeous walks right from the doorstep, and if you don't fancy cooking one night, the local pub is under a mile away - perfect for an evening stroll.

Set in breathtaking Nidderdale, this property is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are bags of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance including the fabulous Brimham Rocks (4 miles) and the Three Peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent which draw in climbers and trekkers from all across the world. Many visitors partake in fund raisers – climbing all three mountains is something of a coveted challenge. If you love the outdoors, there is no limit to the number of cycling trails, walking routes, and rock faces to climb or abseil down. Take a walk around the Gouthwaite Reservoir for some spectacular waterside views. And no trip to this corner of Yorkshire would be complete without a day out in Harrogate which is just over 20 miles away. This elegant Victorian Spa town is bursting at the seams with antique shops, cafes, independent boutiques and restaurants.

Wonderful location in the heart of the Nidderdale area of outstanding natural beauty. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped - guaranteeing a good nights sleep. Parking in the village car park was difficult during the peak tourist season, but there was plenty of places to park in and around the village.

After a very long journey to reach the cottage it was lovely to find a great welcome pack, including treats, a towel and a bowl for our Black Labrador! The whole cottage was very welcoming with the lights left on for arrival. I would however say that the bathrooms need some frosted glass!! It is a little remote, and I would be very careful with theRead more narrow roads around that area! But would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage. Hide

Another excellent week-end away in another Gorgeous Cottage.

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?
