A great stay and a fantastic cottage

Perfect quiet retreat in a beautiful rural spot. Ideal for our party of 6 to relax and enjoy some 'me' time but close enough to drive to beautiful Harrogate, York or the surrounding Yorkshire countryside. Very well equipped kitchen and if you're lucky enough with the weather a lovely peaceful garden to chill out in. Highly recommended!!

Half term grim weather didn't dampen our spirits as Sarah (the owner) had made the cottage very comfortable. Bath sheets (not towels), plenty of hot water, a log fire if needed, plus a large, well equipped kitchen meant that when we were forced to stay inside, we were not miserable. The National Trust cards got a bashing since there is a lot to expRead morelore nearby, without venturing into nearby York. Some excellent local pubs serving good food ensured our stay was a happy one. Hide

A very comfortable cottage for all 6 people. The cottage is on a farm/estate and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Beds were very comfortable. Sarah was a very warm and welcoming host and we would love to return to the cottage again! Highly recommended. 5stars!

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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?
