We loved every thing about this property. The little nods to its history were great. Our biggest pleasure was seeing our girls faces when they found the Easter eggs that had been left. Very generous and hugely generous. As was the Prosecco, the milk and delicious eggs. A great few nights in a spotless, quirky cottage. Thank you x

Lovely character cottage. We stayed with our two children 15 and 12 for a 5 night break. Great location, near to the centre of Pateley. Shops, cafes, pub, park and walks on the doorstep but also fairly quiet too. No parking outside but some spaces just around the corner. Lots of lovely places/tourist attractions nearby:Bolton Abbey, Fountains AbbeyRead more, Brimham rocks, Grassington and some more a little further away: Hawes, Hardraw force and Asygarth falls. Hide

Very nice cottage. Recently refurbished and hence in good condition. Good heating and hot water, and nice gas fire in lounge. Kitchen and dining area are well equipped. Bedrooms slightly small, but cosy, and nice bathroom. Great location in the town near pubs and shops, with good country walks from the door.

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?
