Lovely little cottage in a remote area. New, well equipped and host was very welcoming. Weather was a bit hit and miss but we managed a short spell in the jacuzzi which was very relaxing. Great walking trails on the doorstep, lovely views, horses in the surrounding fields but sadly no private garden area surrounding the cottage so our dog had to beRead more restrained while outside. The hosts have everything else covered, outdoor dog wash and doggy towels, welcome pack, washing line, robes and slippers. Hide

Beautiful converted holiday accommodation, stylish as well as practical. In the most perfect location especially if you have a dog as walks right from the accommodation instead of having to use car. Peaceful and idyllic well away from any roads.

We had a three night break and it really was a refreshing and relaxing break. The cottage is very well equipped, clean and welcoming. We made use of the hot tub after long rambling walks straight out from the cottage - we didn't move the car once. Lots of varied countryside to amble around in and the proximity to NT's Croft Castle is excellent. FivRead moree stars from 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?
