Lovely cottage in a beautiful, quiet setting with gorgeous views. Cottage very comfortable and much larger than expected. It was well equipped for our week long stay. Lots of wonderful pubs nearby (a short drive) and many activities for the day. Despite Covid restrictions we managed to visit places such as Fountain's Abbey, Harewood House and RHS HRead morearlow Carr. We had a wonderful afternoon tea at Betty's in Harrogate. Definitely recommend the cottage, we traveled with two children (5 and 10). Hide

Very well equipped cottage in a quiet location but with many places to visit within easy driving distance. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners who live next door and spotting the local wildlife was a feature from the cottage was a feature of the holiday.

We were looking for peace & quiet, and we got them by the bucket load. Well out of things but still only 5 min drive from the village or 15 min or so from Harrogate if you fancy a pint or a meal out. 20 min drive to Hazel Grove clay pigeon shooting ground. Spotless cottage, very well equipped, beautiful gardens.

The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. It was suitable for my mother who has reduced mobility. The garden and patio area were lovely places to relax . It is well located for places of interest such as Harlow Carr gardens. Harrogate, Knaresborough, Fountains Abbey, Skipton, York or walks.

Ian and his wife were wonderful hosts and were readily available if we needed anything. The cottage is lovely and very convenient for exploring everything that Yorkshire has to offer. It has a very homely feel as well as being bright and spacious. We would highly recommend visiting.

We had a lovely holiday. The second bedroom was small but our adult children found it ok. The cottage was fitted out to a very high standard and had everything we needed. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the birds & wildlife around the bird feeder and quite fun to watch the robot mower too!

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?
