The Platform truly is a gorgeous cottage in a beautiful village and rural location. The cottage is high spec and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting out on the platform and having the log burner at night. Great walk over the hills to Ripley Castle. The local pub is welcoming and Sophies coffee shop does great food. Highly recommended ...

The platform is simply amazing an oasis of peace with a beautiful outlook and location in a very pretty village. The cottage itself is immaculately presented with everything you could need and more, the owners are friendly and helpful. Ideally placed for visits to Harrogate ( Harlow Carr Garden, Bettys Tea Room) or local attractions (Brimham Rocks,Read more Fountains Abbey), there are also plenty of opportunities for walking( Nidderdale way) and cycling ( Nidderdale greenway to Knaresborough/Harrogate).

Perfect cottage that is modern but with some quirky features that adds some additional fun to our stay. Its set in a beautiful location overlooking the valley on the south side so you get most of the sun, it was so quite at night with only the hoot of the owls to wake you! The log burner was excellent and a lovely feature, although we generally madRead moree the cottage so hot we had to open the doors!!

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?
