Our 2nd stay in Duxey Cottage. Absolutely love it here, it was nice to use the wood burner at night, so cosy. We walked to J Abbey and to the ice cream parlour cafe in one afternoon, beautiful scenery. Had a meal at The Sandpiper Inn in Leyburn, very nice.

A really pretty and spacious cottage with excellent facilities, nice touches, and generous welcome basket. Lovely garden with views over countryside. Great location. A pity that central heating clanging and banging led to disturbed sleep.This is a known problem which the owner apologises for. Otherwise excellent.

Duxey cottage is a little gem of a property set in a quiet rural location. Has retained original features - lots of character. The rooms although compact ( as you would expect ) are plenty big enough for two and enhance the cosy cottage feel. The whole property is beautifully furnished and equipped to a high standard . WiFi is fast and the TV is a Read moresmart model. Mature, sheltered garden is lovely for sitting out after a day exploring. Very generous welcome pack with quality goodies! Hide

We enjoyed a very comfortable and secluded stay at Duxey Cottage. The furnishings were of high quality but it was the owner's thoughtful and generous touches throughout the cottage which made our stay that little bit more special (a good quality welcome basket, bottled water, shampoos, chocolate, plenty of firewood etc). It was all very welcoming.

The perfect place to relax and get away from it all. From the moment we arrived the tension of our busy lives melted away. The Cottage is perfect in every way no detail is overlooked from the welcome hamper to the fluffy bathrobes. Beautifully decorated and equipped could quite happily have stayed much longer. Perfect for exploring the Dales.

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?
