A lovey cottage in a tranquil setting. If you are looking for a spacious one bed cottage then this is perfect. Very clean modern and tidy. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need. There was a welcome pack including home made bread made by Malcolm which was a lovely treat. I dont own a dog but they would be happy staying here and Read moreeven have an exercise area to have a run about. The views from the cottage are amazing. I would definitely love to return to this wonderful cottage Hide

I had the most wonderful time at the Dapple Grey. The cottage was immaculate with everything you needed for convenience and comfort. Even when there was a power cut due to storms, Lynn and Malcolm provided everything from candles, a phone power bank, fresh eggs and they even bought generators for all the cottages so we could have hot water. Lynn alRead moreso lent me her mountain bike so I could discover the beauty of the area. I couldn't have asked for better hosts. Highly recommended! Hide

A superbly well equipped property set in lovely countryside but well located for exploring the region. The high standard both inside and outside makes this a great place to relax. The spaciousness of the grounds and well thought out seating make the most of enjoying the lovely views and open aspect of the cottage.

A fabulous stay. Nice and peaceful location, beautiful cottage with lots of nice little extra touches. A blanket, dog bowls and treats for our dog. A mouthwatering locally produced bread on arrival. Plus tea coffee sugar, milk and butter or when you arrived parched. The owners were lovely and helpful in suggesting places to go and we got the chanceRead more to meet Lily (what a beautiful dog!). We had a baby with us and they provided a high chair and cot. The cottage was well-equipped, highly recommend. Hide

This cottage was amazing. It was cleaned to a very high standard and the owners have thought of everything for guests to have a pleasant stay. Definitely deserves 5 stars. All rooms were cosy with quality furnishings and definitely a home away from home. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much x

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?
