Original features in this pretty property have been maintained, and the cosy lounge is decorated in a traditional country style.

A contemporary kitchen-come-dining room also awaits you on this ground floor, with a generous hamper of local goodies to delve into on arrival. Prepare morning coffee first thing and unwind in the private courtyard, soaking up some sunshine and taking in the fresh Yorkshire air.

Wander down the road into the village of Kirby Malzeard, finding a friendly local pub a few hundred yards away and a local store and cafe less than half a mile. Explore the chocolate-box villages of Pateley Bridge (8.5 miles) and Bolton Abbey (21.5 miles), or head to Ripley (11 miles) to visit its historic castle.

What a treat of a cottage. Well placed for local walks and further away. Good walking guides in cottage. Owner extremely helpful for local information. The road was closed due to a wall collapse at the local church which made the road even more peaceful. Great local butchers and shop. Cottage clean and well equipped. Would definitely go back.

Lovely cosy place, characterful, with a welcoming log burner. The local butchers provided an excellent pheasant pie, and the village shop had 'the essentials'. Quiet location, the church clock just audible chiming the hours. Easy access to Ripon, Harrogate and the Sawley Arms which served good food (and beer!)

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?
