Property code: 73806

Once a pump house belonging to Yorkshire Water, this old building has been given a 21st-century makeover and is now a stylish and romantic retreat.

This cottage is located in a walker's paradise; close to the famous Three Peaks of Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent and Whernisde there are a multitude of countryside trails and peaceful paths to explore, where you'll experience an amazing sense of getting away from it all. If you're more of a roamer than a rambler, take a stroll around the grounds of nearby Bolton Abbey – these striking ruins provide the backdrop to a particularly beautiful part of the Dales and are well worth a visit.

 

Step inside and you'll immediately sense the quality of this conversion. The décor is elegant, contemporary and of exceptional quality, with underfloor heating, solid oak floors, doors and stairs - it's a dream holiday home for lovers of comfort and style. Starting in the fabulous handmade open-plan kitchen which has been painted in Farrow and Ball greys, it boasts a huge kitchen island and all mod cons including a Quooker (hot water tap). The lounge is wonderfully light and airy with a large cosy sofa and TV with SONOS sound system. Bi-folding doors allow you to experience the moorland from your living room. Downstairs also has a utility room and WC with a Belfast sink and washer/dryer. Make your way up the solid oak staircase to the magnificent bedroom, with king-size bed and the finest bed linen. There's also a free-standing bath in this room, perfect for a long hot soak after a walk around the Dales. A fabulous wet room sits next door, fully tiled in Italian marble and with waterfall taps, a monsoon shower and solid granite surfaces.

 

The outdoor space is just as impressive as the interior with 360 degree vistas across heather and hill, with cosmopolitan Ilkley nestling far below. A terrace is the perfect spot for al fresco dining, followed up by a soak in the hot tub – a wonderful way to end a day.

Our 3rd visit was as perfect as our first visit back in Jan 2019. We feel so relaxed at the Pump House, its secluded but not far from amenities.

This place is heaven on earth. The location, the building, the decor, the views, everything you could want. The owners think of everything, even providing a welcome pack on your arrival. The remoteness of The Pump House and the fact you can walk across the moors from the front door is a big appeal.

The Pump House is in a spectacular location with amazing views, and is appointed to a very high standard. We very much enjoyed our stay, although the sense of privacy and escapism is compromised by the fact that one of the security cameras overlooks the hot tub. As we slept with the windows open, we were woken early on a couple of occasions when LeRead moreeds Bradford airport flights were routed nearby, and also by the participants arriving on a shoot day, but this detracted only a little from our stay.

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?
