A wonderfully presented former stable providing the perfect romantic retreat for couples to relax, unwind and explore beautiful countryside straight from the front door.

Set in the grounds of the owner’s home, tucked away in the picturesque village of Tockwith which is steeped in history. Tockwith is famed for its role in the English Civil War and lies just 1.5 miles from Marston Moor where one of the biggest battles ever on British soil took place. The area is a paradise for walkers and cyclists with an abundance of tracks and trails straight from the doorstep. The vibrant city of York is just 9 miles away where you can browse the cobbled streets, take a stroll around the ancient city walls, or visit one of the renowned museums, including the Jorvik Viking Centre. For a spot of retail therapy, the popular spa town of Harrogate (13 miles) can be reached in just over half an hour.

This beautiful single-level accommodation has been wonderfully converted from a former stable, retaining beams and many original features. As you enter the property you are greeted by a bright and spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Relax on the comfortable sofas and watch a movie on the Smart TV or take a seat around the dining table and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. The kitchen area is stylish and fully equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Along the corridor you will find a well-appointed king-size bedroom, filled with light from the large windows. To complete the interior is an elegant bathroom with shower over the bath and WC.

Stepping outside, you can enjoy a morning coffee from the private patio and relax in the summer sun. Guests also have shared use of the owner’s extensive garden. There is off-road parking for one car and a garage for secure cycle storage on request.

A well placed cottage for exploring the York and Harrogate areas with a comfortable base to come back to each evening. The owners were available to advise when wanted without being intrusive. Definitely going back sometime Alex & Mary West Midlands

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?
