What a beautiful cottage. 3 bedroom and 3 bathrooms so great for a group or family. Huge garden, hot tub under cover, BBQ and a pizza oven great fun to use. Wood burning fire in lounge makes it very cosy at night. Near to Ripon and Harrogate. Great base for a holiday. Highly recommend.

The house is absolutely lovely. It is very well equipped and was very clean on arrival. A welcome hamper was a lovely touch. The garden is really large, enclosed and well kept. The hot tub is in an ideal place as the views are stunning and watching the sunset is an added bonus. We loved our time here and was quite reluctant to go home!

We had a wonderful stay at Moorfield House. The house is beautiful, spotlessly clean and had everything we could have wanted. The garden is stunning with views of the countryside. A drink in the hot tub whatever the weather was a perfect way to end the day. We would love to return for another stay in the future.

The house itself is gorgeous. The standard of decor/furnishing is excellent. It is extremely well equipped with fantastic extras like the pizza oven, fabulous hot tub and generous welcome hamper. However, one thing I cant believe previous reviewers havent mentioned is the smell. The house is directly opposite the pig barns and the smell is overwhelRead moreming. Flies are also a big issue. We also found the shrieking of the pigs a bit upsetting. We are town folk; perhaps a working farm wasnt for us. 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?
