The accommodation was spotlessly clean and better equipped than our own home in many respects! Our children loved seeing the sheep, ducks and chickens in the field next-door.The owners could not have been more helpful and we very much hope to visit again one day.

We enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable and well equipped converted barn. In a quiet rural setting with beautiful local walks. Convenient for both Harrogate and Leeds.

After a long drive from the Isle of Wight, our spacious yet cosy, extremely clean Old Barn at Newby had all the creature comforts (and more) for us and our two four-legged friends. Tucked away along a country lane, the setting was peaceful and offered an escape from reality, yet spawned Otley, Leeds, York and Harrogate a short drive away in differiRead moreng directions . Other attractions were listed in a comprehensive Guest Information Pack, along with operating instructions for the various mod-cons which adorned the quaint, well-equipped kitchen. Our friendly and obliging host and hostess (Linda and Martin) had left a welcome pack of fresh eggs, yummy honey and milk to help us settle in, which we supplemented following a supermarket run, only ten minutes away. With the exception of the kitchen scissors which had gone 'walkabout', the barn was so well equipped that Mary Berry would have been at home here! We visited in June and aim to return in the other seasons of the year when the Old Barn and its surroundings will, we are sure, take on a different persona - all equally resplendent and welcoming Hide

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?
