This cosy hideaway is full of character in a rural hamlet located on the outskirts of Thirsk. An ideal romantic retreat for couples whatever the occasion.

This idyllic location provides total peace and tranquillity, not too far from Thirsk or Ripon. You are spoilt for choice of National Parks, sandwiched between The North York Moors and The Yorkshire Dales. There are many country walks, with a vast choice of routes, both long and short. From soft rolling hills or steep craggy fells, there is something for all walking levels. Thirsk has a bustling market twice a week and a monthly livestock market. If a cosy country pub is more your scene, the choice is endless! This cottage is a short drive from two glorious National Trust sites, Newby Hall and Fountains Abbeys, an ancient abbey ruin with gardens and deer park. The coast is an easy day trip away, from the charming seaside town of Filey, north up through to Whitby, Sandsend and the delightful Runswick Bay.

Inside this period, detached former coach house is crammed with character and tastefully furnished with all your home comforts. Enter into the cottage hallway with plenty of room for coats and boots, head through to the lounge offering a warming wood burner and cosy sofas, an ideal place to snuggle up and relax after a long day exploring. The kitchen/diner is well-equipped and has everything you will need to make afternoon tea to Christmas dinner with an electric oven and induction hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave. The table extends to seat four should you have company. Relax by watching a film on the TV/DVD or listen to your music. Off the lounge is a separate WC. Head up the staircase into the beautifully appointed bedroom, boasting a king-size bed, space to store you clothes and a lovely en-suite bathroom, with wood panelled walls, bath and separate shower room. The perfect place to unwind and rest after a lovely day outdoors.

Outside is a small patio area where you can sit on warm balmy evenings and enjoy the peace with a glass of wine. Off street parking for two cars is available.

the cottage location was good, close to Thirsk and not far from A1. Parking has ample space for larger cars. The internet seemed good, we had no problems with it.

A beautiful well thought out cottage with all the comforts of home. We arrived late due to traffic so we were very grateful for the welcome pack when we arrived. It was the hottest week of the year but it was lovely & cool at night. Although handy for Thirsk & Ripon Ive marked the location down because of the road noise from heavy trucks and the ovRead moreer powering pungent smell, coming from the local battery chicken farm. Probably extreme because of it being such hot weather. Hide

A lovely cottage in a rural location ideally situated for day trips to the North York Moors and the coast to the east plus the Yorkshire Dales / Harrogate / Ripon to the west. Wonderful owners with plenty of recommendations for local restaurants etc. if needed.

The cottage is beautiful and well decorated, it is in a lovely location and the hosts Jeremy and Judith are so welcoming and approachable but give you space to relax also. The cottage has everything you will need for a relaxing break and Judith makes really nice cakes for you on arrival, we will definitely go back in the near future.

The cottage was in an ideal location for visiting the Yorkshire Dales and the market towns in close proximity i.e. Thirsk, Northallerton and Ripon. Everything was there which we needed and it was nicely decorated and comfortable.

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?
