Set in beautiful Nidderdale, this outstanding lodge is a perfect holiday home for a family looking for a secluded spot in lovely countryside which is also close to the thriving spa town of Harrogate.
Overlooking the glorious Washburn Valley in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this fantastic property makes a great base for families, friends, keen walkers and cyclists seeking to explore the miles of moorland and woodland available from the doorstep. There are also several delightful towns and quaint villages to explore throughout the area, all with a great range of pubs, restaurants, shops and cafes, including Otley (4 miles), Ilkley (10 miles), Pateley Bridge (12 miles) and the historic Victorian spa town of Harrogate (10 miles). Among the many local attractions to discover are the National Trust's Brimham Rocks, RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr and Harewood House (all within 10 miles), Bolton Abbey (13.5 miles) and Fountains Abbey (18 miles).
Stepping into this beautiful property you will find a light, spacious and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. With a cosy wood burner and plenty of comfortable seating, the lounge is an ideal space to relax in and enjoy a movie on the TV which also has Netflix. There's an attractive dining area, and the charming kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, hob, oven, microwave, fridge and freezer. The washing machine and tumble dryer are kept in a nearby utility room. Exploring the ground floor further, there are two cosy bedrooms: the first features a king-size bed and double aspect windows, and the second is a twin room with two single beds. These two rooms share the ground-floor shower room which is complete with a large walk-in shower room and WC. Heading up the bespoke wooden staircase you will find a stunning and spacious master bedroom, with a super-king-size bed and a private south-facing decked area with a glass balcony allowing you to enjoy lovely country views. There is also bathroom complete with a freestanding bath and a separate walk-in monsoon shower.
Heading outside you can relax in the private hot tub which is located on the wooden deck at the front of the lodge. There's also plenty of furniture for you to sit back and enjoy a drink as you look out over the fantastic rural views. There are five acres of grounds to explore, with streams, a packhorse bridge and a pond, and plenty of animals including sheep and cows roaming freely and grazing in the adjoining fields.
For larger groups, an identical second lodge will be available from Easter 2020 - also sleeping 6 in 3 beautiful bedrooms. The second lodge has its own large, outdoor grounds and plenty of space between for each property to enjoy it's own privacy.
