Romantic retreat set within a rural location in Wensleydale offering luxurious accommodation complete with hot tub for two guests looking to truly unwind in style and soak up the scenic surroundings.

Set within a larger estate in a pretty, slow-paced peaceful village in Wensleydale. Beyond the village, you will find the attractive towns of Bedale and Leyburn, home to traditional shops, welcoming pubs and charming cafes waiting to be explored. When it comes to outdoor activities you'll be spoilt for choice and, with the rolling countryside on your doorstep, there's no need to stray too far. However, the Aysgarth Falls, Bolton Castle and Yorkshire Dales National Park are all within driving distance, so take your pick.

Carefully restored in order to retain the elegant character and historic features, this luxurious cottage offers a real homely feel. As you step inside, you'll discover a cosy living area boasting a compact kitchen and breakfast bar/dining area. The kitchen comes equipped with all the amenities you'll require to enjoy a spot of home cooking during your stay. Following a day of discovery, make your way up the stairs to be greeted by the plush bedroom, boasting a Juliet balcony so you can soak up the views of the formal parterre gardens and beyond. A lavish wet room made for two, complete with underfloor heating and monsoon shower is located on the ground floor. Please note, the cottage is styled as a luxury hotel room so there is no lounge area – consider it your boutique hotel room, minus the price tag.

Outside you'll find much to enjoy, with the star of the show being the indulgent wood-fired hot tub set within the walled, well-maintained garden boasting a private dining area and enviable views in all directions. This property offers off-road parking.

FIVE STAR ALL ROUND. Stunning property in great location at the eastern end of Wensleydale. The Hot Tub is the clincher for us - great to unwind with a Prosecco in after a day's exploration. Note it is very small, one up and one down, but brilliantly converted and kitted out - ideal just for a couple. The locality was a great surprise to us who thoRead moreught we knew our Yorkshire. Thank you Karl and Aisling. Kevin and Diane Murphy, from Retford, Notts Hide

Lovely cottage, great size for couples wanting a romantic break away. Hot tub is a great addition and would really recommend the drop and dip service.

A lovely clean cottage, small but cosy. Low beamed ceiling may be a problem for very tall people. The views are amazing and wildlife close up. Wood fired hot tub was the icing on the cake. Karl the owner was on hand to help when we couldnt get it lit. Lovely seating area outside the cottage. Fresh bread, jam and eggs waiting for us which was a loveRead morely touch. Bed was so comfy and we slept really well. Shower in wet room was amazing. Plenty of power sockets. The cleaners are a credit to the place. Hide

the property is small but absolutely lovely and the details inside are second to none. the owners have made use of every possible space available to make a beautiful property. It doesn't have a living area which is a shame however we had a lovely stay regardless.

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?
