A beautiful cottage surrounded by endless country views, this property is the perfect getaway for families or couples. Adjoining the owner's farmhouse within a working farm, it is the ultimate rural retreat.

Enjoying uninterrupted views towards North Yorkshire's Hambleton Hills and the famous White Horse at Kilburn, this property is in a prime rural location. With an abundance of walking trails and cycle routes nearby, it also allows guests to dip in and out of more sophisticated scenes, with the charming spa town of Harrogate 9 miles away. A wonderful day trip, Ripley Castle is less than 5 miles away and offers a fascinating insight into the area throughout the ages.

Once a home for drovers travelling with livestock, this characterful two-bedroom period cottage has been lovingly refurbished. Starting in the welcoming lounge, a sumptuous sofa and armchair face a TV and wood burner. Nestled in an attractive inglenook fireplace with rustic wooden mantel, the wood-burning stove pumps out heat and is a welcome treat on chilly nights. Next door to the lounge is the open-plan kitchen and diner. Home to polished granite worktops, the kitchen provides a stylish arena for budding chefs. Equipped with an induction hob, fan oven, dishwasher and fridge in the kitchen, a freezer and washing/drying machine can also be found in the adjoining utility room. Also, in the utility room is a downstairs WC. For cosy evenings in together, the traditional farmhouse-style dining table and chairs are next to another inglenook fireplace, this time containing an electric fire. In the dining room, there is also a comfortable sofa, offering somewhere cosy to sprawl out after a delicious evening meal. Upstairs, two bedrooms with en-suite facilities can be found. One bedroom has a super-king bed that can be made into two singles if necessary. This bedroom is furnished with a luxurious comfort sprung mattress, a wall-mounted Smart TV and en-suite shower room with walk-in monsoon shower. The other bedroom also boasts a super-king bed, comfort sprung mattress, wall-mounted TV and en-suite with a walk-in shower and separate bath. To complete the picture, the upstairs landing has a small recess area with an armchair and bookcase.

Outside, extensive grounds wait to be explored, including an enclosed orchard filled with lush fruit trees, including Bramley Apple trees. An outdoor seating area with table, chairs and BBQ invites guests to tuck into a spot of al fresco lunch with a backdrop of jaw-dropping views.

  • 2 bedrooms: 1 super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into 2 single beds on request), 1 super-king-size

Aptly situated in open countryside with views across to the Hambleton Hills and the White Horse at Kilburn this prospect is found on a working farm, offering all the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the delights of cosmopolitan Harrogate just 9.5 miles away. With miles of stunning walks and mountain bike trails literally from the doorstep, the cottage is heaven for lovers of all things outdoors. Within easy walking distance is the sweet little village of Burton Leonard, it offers local pubs with good pub grub as well as post office and village store. The handsome village of Ripley (6 miles), is a gorgeous little place which looks like a set for Downton Abbey. Little has changed in the village for many years, beautiful old stone buildings line the quiet main street and the local village pub beckons you in with its vine covered exterior and handsome good looks. Serving up great food it's a lovely choice for lunch and dinner. There's an excellent off-road cycle / walking route from Ripley right into Harrogate (5 miles) if you fancy working up an appetite for one of the town's excellent restaurants. Harrogate is an absolute must if you're staying here. Encircled by its famous 'Stray' or '1,000 acres' of horseshoe shaped grassland, the Victorian spa town of Harrogate has a bright and breezy open-air feel and is characterised by its impressive floral displays. And as you would expect of such a bustling upbeat town, Harrogate boasts over 300 bars and restaurants together with all the shops, swimming pools, cinemas, parks and gardens you could ever wish for.

Head a few miles in the opposite direction and you will find Pateley Bridge, a charming little market town very typical of this area of Yorkshire. The Main Street is peppered with cafes, restaurants, local stores, quality butchers and a fantastic wine shop – everything you need to stock up for your stay. You'll also find the self-proclaimed 'Oldest Sweet Shop in England' here dating back to the early 1800s - little has changed inside since then. Pateley Bridge sits at the heart of the breath taking Nidderdale landscape, itself an AONB and immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are bags of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance including the much-loved Brimham Rocks, just a few miles from the cottage.

We would recommend the cottage to anyone who intended to visit Yorkshire and can assure them that they would be very comfortable, and happy with their stay. The situation is ideal for touring most parts of Yorkshire. There is plenty of wood if a fire was required in the evening.

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?
