A beautifully finished barn conversion sitting on the cusp of Wensleydale, surrounded by attractive countryside and bustling market towns offering a delectable slice of relaxed Yorkshire lifestyle.

Set within the open countryside on the outskirts of Newton-le-Willows, a quaint village in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales boasting a gorgeous tearoom and shop. With the towns of Bedale, 4 miles away, and Leyburn, 7.5 miles away, home to charming eateries, traditional shops, country pubs and attractions aplenty, you won't be short of things to fill out your days. What's more, the thriving market town of Masham sits just 6 miles from the cottage and is home to a cobbled square, one of the largest and finest in England, famous for its sheep sales. Beyond this, Masham offers plenty of dining options, a wonderful wine shop and two award-winning breweries - you could spend a lazy day exploring this town.

At the heart of beautiful cottage is the generous open-plan living space, made up of the lounge, kitchen and dining area. Head to the lounge and fire up the contemporary wood burner before sinking into the reclining sofa for the evening. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the mod cons you'll need to rustle up dinner, and the dining area offers plenty of space when it comes to entertaining and enjoying meals as a group. The bright and airy setting makes the perfect spot for meals no matter what time of day, offering pleasurable views out of the window. All three bedrooms are located on the ground floor. The master bedroom comes complete with a king-size bed and free-standing bath for those evening soaks, along with an en-suite WC. The second bedroom is a super-king-size which can be made up as a twin upon request, with the third being a sweet single room. The shared bathroom boasts an additional bath with walk-in shower, no need for queues of a morning.

There's plenty to enjoy outside as well. Step through the lounge patio doors to discover an attractive enclosed garden. Home to a spacious lawn, BBQ and comfortable patio for al fresco dining and evening drinks, weather permitting. Rolling countryside surrounds you and if you enjoy the great outdoors, you won't be short of options when it comes to exploring. The barn also offers off-road parking.

What a fabulous week we had at Fortmayne Stables. The place was beautiful and the kitchen was the most well equipped kitchen of any holiday let we have stayed in previously. David sent through a comprehensive document before our stay, detailing local attractions and shops which came in very handy. Would highly recommend Cockburn's, the local butcheRead morers in Bedale.

We had a really enjoyable stay! The barn is beautiful and spotlessly clean. Even though some things had to be removed before we arrived due to virus recommendations, we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. David was on hand if we had any queries, but left us to our own devices. There was lots of wildlife in the area. We did many walks inRead more Swaledale, Hawes, etc most of which were at least 30 mins drive. So if you don't mind a drive, it's an excellent location . Hide

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?
