Duke's Place is a splendid south facing Georgian property with four comfortable cottages attached in a courtyard arrangement.

The original old forge for this fine equestrian property has been thoughtfully renovated with great attention to detail.  Enjoying two bedrooms and two bathrooms - just perfect for two couples or a family. It is located adjacent to Duke's Place Farm House, so works well as an extension to this property sleeping upto 14 people in reasonably close proximity.


On entering the cottage there is small boot room and downstairs cloakroom (also contains washer/dryer). 

The cottage has two majestic oak beams which stretch the full length of the downstairs lifestyle room, a log burning stove and an anvil "as a nod" to the property's history as an old forge.  A comfy "L-shape" sofa, heated limestone floor heating and TV makes for a relaxing space.

The lifestyle room also is home to a well-equipped kitchen and dining table with views over the courtyard as well as breakfast bar with stools - making for a wonderful sociable space.

A stunning stone staircase leads to two cosy well-appointed double bedrooms with feature beams.  Bedroom one has a double bed with views over open fields, an en-suite shower room with toilet and wash basin and TV.  Bedroom two has a double bed, an en-suite with shower over the bath and a small dressing area.  This room benefits from a dual aspect, having views over the courtyard and to the countryside beyond.

There is a beautiful shared courtyard and garden with seating area at your disposal.

Duke's Place enjoys a wonderful rural setting at the gateway to Nidderdale and within close driving distance of National Trust Fountain's Abbey, Newby Hall, Ripley Castle, the historic city of Ripon with its cathedral, National Trust Brimham Rocks and Harrogate.


Washer/dryer. Slimline dishwasher, oven, microwave, toaster, fridge with freezer compartment. SMART TVs in both bedrooms and the lifestyle room. WIFI is available, although please be mindful that this is a rural location. Ample parking. Shared garden with seating. Familes welcome, but please bring own cot and highchair. Dogs welcome (£20 per pet).
