A lovely cottage, nicely furnished & everything you need to feel at home. The bed was super comfy. A basket of goodies and bread & milk was a nice welcome. The location is peaceful and relaxing. It is easy to reach so many lovely places either by car, on foot or by public transport; in a 2 minute walk there are buses to surrounding areas including Read moreHalifax, where you can catch a train further afield. Hipperhome a 30 min walk has shops, pubs, chippy & couple of restaurants. We will visit again. Hide

Gentleman Jack cottage was all we could have wished for in a getaway: Spacious, beautifully designed, very comfortable, peaceful (we loved the cows outside the window) and very cosy. Tucked away on a tiny road, this cottage provided us with a wonderful week in Yorkshire. The owners, Sue and Mark, were incredibly responsive to a couple of minor needRead mores (a tarp for the bikes and instructions for the TV) and the bed is one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in. Simply delightful in every way. Hide

Lovely cottage and great location for many places to visit. Easy to find and very comfortable. We were delighted to have a basket of goodies to enjoy when we arrived. There was plenty to do we could easily have stayed more than the week that we booked.

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?
