Property code: G0089

Luxurious tucked-away cottage sitting on the cusp of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park within the sleepy little village of Thorton Watlass offering a slow-paced retreat to the countryside.

In a village that surrounds a large green area you'll see rolling hills from every direction, offering a wonderfully rural retreat whilst enjoying the convenience of a welcoming pub within walking distance; a perfect refuge following a day of exploring the Dales. You may recognise the village from the BBC's ‘All Creatures Great & Small' or ITV's heartbeat' thanks to its picturesque backdrop. If you become a little restless, drive just 4 miles to reach the thriving market town of Masham; where picture-postcard Georgian buildings surround the charming cobbled square filled with independent shops, eateries, a wonderful wine shop and two award-winning breweries, you won't be short of options here!

Make your way in via the rustic wood veranda to discover generous, light-filled rooms complete with quirky touches and original charm throughout. At the heart of the cabin is a double height open-plan area made up of the lounge and kitchen area. A stylish wood burner nestles in the corner as sunlight floods through the patio doors creating a truly enjoyable lounge area, no matter the time of year. The contemporary kitchen comes complete with all the mod cons you'll need to cook up some of the delicious local produce before sitting down at the breakfast bar to refuel. The opposite end of the cabin is home to the beautifully finished master bedroom; another bright and welcoming room of generous proportions complete with king-size bed and luxurious soft furnishings. The family bathroom is next door boasting a bath to sink into of an evening as well as an invigorating shower overhead.

There is a lot to be appreciated outside, the veranda to the front is made for those morning coffees as you take in your serene surroundings to start the day. Step through the sliding doors from the lounge to access a stone patio complete with bistro dining spot with a wonderful fire bowl to keep you toasty during the chillier months. If the mood takes you, stroll down to the paddock to meet the resident Zwartble sheep or enjoy a little snooze on your hammock. Off-road parking is available.

It's a lovely cottage with a lovely garden and the hosts, Jane and Allan, are lovely. It was value for money and we wouldn't hesitate to offer it to family and friends. And watching cricket on the village green is very 'English'! Although no shops in the village, you are not far from Bedale and Masham or, further afield, Ripon and Northallerton.

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?
