This is a stone barn conversion in a great location: an old hall and (working?) farm. A great retreat, with pleasant surrounding grounds, and only two miles from Ripon. You need to see it as a retreat because there's no mobile signal, no broadband and no landline. Makes a great place for exploring the area (eg nidderdale). The photos are deceptive:Read more it is much smaller than they depict. The interior is nicely done.... exposed beams and strip pine. Clean and tidy. Outside is good sandstone. Hide

The accommodation was lovely. We did find the bed extremely comfortable as well as the bedding. We found the television a bit temperamental and struggeled to get it working initially. We really enjoyed our stay, its in a good location between Ripon and Harrogate and situated on a stunning estate. Many thanks for a pleasant stay.

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?
