Having done several cottage holidays, Ivy Cottage has topped our list. The setting, the decor, the facilities, well in fact everything. We just couldnt fault it. We even cracked cooking with the AGA! Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to enjoy your cottage, and we now have so many happy memories to treasure from a brilliant stay

We've had a lovely, if all too brief stay at Ivy Cottage, with rain to let us appreciate the cosiness of the fire and sun to let us enjoy tea in the conservatory

Eight of us stayed at your FABULOUS cottage to celebrate our 30th birthdays. Immaculate and so comfortable, the cottage offered everything we needed. Very well equipped kitchen and some memorable moments in the lovely lounge with a fab fire. A home from home - we will be sad to leave!

We booked Ivy Cottage as a break for my mums 60th birthday and could not have been happier. It is without doubt of the loveliest cottages we have ever stayed in. Everything is perfectly and meticulously done. Clean, fresh, beautifully designed and furnished, a real home from home.

Gorgeous cottage in an idyllic location. Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated (I used to be an interior designer for Laura Ashley and recognise much of the interior!) Very comfortable beds, lush bedding and smart bathrooms. A home from home

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?
