Boasting a pretty garden and hot tub, this wonderful property provides the ideal base for family and friends to come together and explore the surrounding countryside.

Nestled in picturesque countryside, this lovely farmhouse benefits from far-reaching views across rolling farmland towards the Cowling Pinnacle. With walks and cycle routes directly from the field adjoining the property, and the Pennine Way within easy reach, the area is a paradise for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. The nearby market town of Skipton boasts a wealth of shops, bars and restaurants to enjoy, as well as a medieval castle. Bronte Country and the village of Haworth are just a short drive away where you can explore the inspiration behind the Bronte sisters' many novels. For family days out, the pretty hamlet of Wycoller, Hardcastle Craggs and the priory ruins at Bolton Abbey are all well worth a visit.

Stepping into this wonderful stone building, you are instantly welcomed. Head into the bright and spacious kitchen/diner which is fully equipped with everything you could need to whip up a home-cooked meal, including an electric range-style oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, a Dolce Gusto coffee machine, and a TV. A beautiful farmhouse table provides the focal point of the room and is the ideal space for all of the family to socialise after a day of exploring. Relax in the beamed lounge adorned with large comfortable sofas and a throne bed for your four-legged friend. Cosy up in front of the wood burner and take advantage of the many games and books on offer to entertain the whole family on a rainy day, or snuggle up in front of the TV/DVD with Sky TV. Moving through the property, you will firstly find the ground-floor shower room and, past here, onto the lovely sunroom with access to the garden and views of the rolling hills beyond. Off from the sunroom is a separate WC. To complete the ground floor is a spacious twin bedroom.

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?
