This apartment is sophisticated, luxurious and one of the most desirable holiday homes in town. It is perfectly located to be able to enjoy everything that the gorgeous Victorian spa town of Harrogate has to offer.

Situated on the top floor of a Victorian house in the desirable, affluent area of Duchy in Harrogate, this property is anything but old-fashioned. Stylish, contemporary living awaits guests, whether they're in town on business or tourists looking to explore this part of Yorkshire and the nearby Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within a mile of the centre of the Victorian spa town, you can walk through the stunning Valley Gardens to the Harrogate Convention Centre, the railway station or the many shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants.

Stepping inside, you'll see that no expense has been spared in this luxury apartment. Despite the neutral tones throughout, the splashes of colour, unique artwork and statement furniture offer character and comfort that you won't find in a hotel. The large, open-plan lounge/diner has bi-folding doors that open on to a delightful, sunny balcony, whilst the modest kitchen is well-equipped. There are two spacious bedrooms: one king-size and one super king-size (two singles on request). There is an en-suite and a family bathroom.

The central location of this apartment offers business guests a convenient base within a mile of the town centre. For those with more time on their hands, there is plenty to explore in the town itself, such as the Royal Pump Room Museum and Valley Gardens. Further afield, there is Harrogate Golf Club (3.5 miles) or, to soak up the area's natural beauty, head to the National Trust's Brimham Rocks (10 miles) or RHS Garden Harlow Carr (2 miles).

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The apartment is set down a quiet leafy suburb in the grand Victorian Spa town of Harrogate. Regularly listed as the best place to live in the UK, Harrogate is a truly gorgeous Yorkshire town which combines traditional elegance with contemporary style effortlessly. And the Duchy suburb is well known as being one of the most desirable postcodes in town.

The property is just a short and very pleasant 2-mile walk away from the centre of town. A walk that takes you down through the famous Valley Gardens, highly regarded for its stunning flower displays and beautiful landscapes.

Best known for its antiques and fine art, Harrogate has antique dealers and galleries around every corner, particularly around the Montpellier Quarter. If buying old paintings and furniture isn't your bag there are a host of other reasons to part with your cash in Harrogate. High fashion outlets nestle alongside lavish interior boutiques, punctuated with enough fine restaurants and cafes to keep you fuelled for weeks.

A visit to Betty's Tearooms is a must and if you have time we highly recommend a session at the famous Turkish Baths. Rejuvenate spirit and soul after a day on the town. If you're travelling with children, Harrogate is famous for its outdoor space with lots of parkland and greenery everywhere. The RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr are also a fantastic option for families.

The apartment is also very close to the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors so makes the perfect base from which to explore the glorious Yorkshire landscape and its many stunning natural sights. The breathtaking Nidderdale is 15 miles away and heading south-west you will be driving through some of the most dramatic Dales scenery. We highly recommend a day trip to gorgeous Ilkley (18 miles) combined with a visit to Bolton Abbey - all just a short drive away.

York is within easy reach (23 miles) and a day-trip to this beautiful medieval city is well worth it. So there is lots of choice, if you can drag yourself away from this beautiful apartment!

The Penthouse was a very agreeable place to stay and in an excellent location. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very comfortable. The living room was ok, not particularly luxurious but functional. The kitchen also was functional though with fairly basic equipment. The two parking spaces at the rear were under trees and only one was really useable.

Great apartment in a beautiful house in a lovely quiet area. The retro decor is a blast from the past. It was very clean and all rooms are spacious. Great welcome pack, coffee and cakes from Bettys and milk for a much needed drink on arrival.

Comfortable, spacious and high quality. On entering the property we were instantly very happy and appreciated the contemporary and luxurious decor. The communal gardens were very well kept and there was ample off road parking.

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.
