A couple’s romantic bolthole in a cosy and charming cottage with spiral staircase, positioned in the heart of the countryside making the whole of Cornwall easily accessible

Nestled within a tiny complex of holiday barns, the rural location lends itself well to being a peaceful retreat as well as an ideal location to base yourself for exploring Cornwall from all angles. The central position in the county makes it easy to discover many different areas, going North to Newquay (11 miles) and Perranporth (5 miles), West to Marazion and Penzance (20 miles) South to Falmouth (15 miles), or East to St Austell and fishing villages (15 miles). Each direction offers a different taste of Cornish life and a variety of attractions to explore.

Accessed from the beautifully landscaped garden, this reversed level quirky conversion is a wonderfully cosy couple's bolthole. Step through the stable door into the open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner with vaulted ceilings, deep sills, and a stylish yet sympathetic interior. The kitchen area has an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, coffee machine, fridge/freezer and microwave so create a special romantic meal for two with the Bluetooth speaker playing your favourite songs in the background. Enjoy a lazy breakfast at the dining table or relax after a day out on the comfy sofa and watch the Smart TV with the wood burner crackling away. A spiral staircase leads down to the king-size bedroom with a calming interior, wardrobe, Smart TV, and a stunning en-suite wet room with a shower and WC. There’s also a utility area with a washer/dryer.

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?
