With some outdoor space it’s perfect for a family with room for the children to play and off-road parking for two cars makes it a doddle for unloading all of your holiday paraphernalia.

At one end is the well-equipped contemporary kitchen with breakfast bar and sunroom at the far end - a glorious space to relax with comfortable sofa and chairs. The bi-folding doors open out onto the patio and garden, ideal for playing or al fresco dining. A king-size bedroom with en-suite is also on this floor. On sunnier days it becomes flooded with light through the French doors which open out on to the patio beyond. Upstairs there is a further beautiful king-size bedroom again with en-suite.

This cottage was so comfortable and well equipped, the owners have thought of everything. They had left groceries to help us settle in. We had a great walk from the cottage to Knaresborough and there were lovely villages and towns just a short drive away. We highly recommend this as a lovely place to stay.

A lovely compact cottage to sleep two couples very comfortably. Beautifully decorated and wonderfully clean. Great location for exploring North Yorkshire. Warm and cosy on a very wet and blustery weekend. Very helpful and welcoming hostess.

Reviewed by Linda 29th September 2018

We could not rate this property highly enough. It was quiet, tastefully decorated and, with a luxurious bed, walk-in shower and fluffy towels, on a par with a luxury hotel. Catherine had provided a more than ample supply of essentials and also a generous, and much appreciated, welcome pack of quality food items. Catherine was the perfect host leavRead moreing us to get on with our holiday but assuring us that she was readily available if need be. We would, without doubt, return to this property. Hide

The cottage is beautifully presented with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The location is central to York and most other areas of interest, we needed more time to fit everything in. I would definitely book this cottage again in the future.

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?
