We had a great week away with our dog. The Loft was perfect location private but a short drive to Instow. The enclosed garden was great for our dog and provided somewhere to eat/drink outside. The best place we found was Northam near Appledore. Huge expanse of beach at low tide. Weekly season ticket available. 15. Shower was great (remember to switRead morech on immersion for short time each day) Room was very comfortable and clean. Hairdryer in drawer too. 4 to 5 star holiday, would love to revisit. Hide

Lovely accommodation set in the rural area of Instowe. Just a 5 minute drive to the beach which is fabulous and dog friendly. Short drive to Appledore, Ilfracombe and Croyde. The owners are really friendly and accommodating. Immaculate and modern accommodation. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

Lovely apartment in a pretty little hamlet. It's not too far from Instow beach which is has a lovely sandy beach and is dog friendly. Appledore is just the other side of the estuary. Beautiful landscaped garden with ample space for the dog to enjoy with seating area, very relaxing. We really enjoyed our stay there.

Property is absolutely fantastic. Superb quiet location, good quality tasteful decor and furnishings. The property was immaculate, clean and spotless as was the bed linen/towels. We loved the surrounding landscaping, fairy lights which came on at night and the power shower!!! We had a lovely, quiet restful break - and will definitely be back soon.

Beautifully decorated, very clean and a nice little garden. Quiet location, but short driving distance to beach, shops and restaurants and very cosy with the log fire lit. Would not be good for anyone with mobility issues due to steps up to entrance.

An immaculate and comfortable apartment in an area close to beaches and beautiful countryside. A little unnerved by the quiet lane initially but we soon got over that. Dog friendly with all that a dog needed and ours settled very happily.

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?
