Situated on the beautiful estate of Hollin Hall, approximately 7 miles north of Harrogate and 2 miles south of Ripon, this is a truly special location.  With two double bedrooms, a sofa bed allows the property to sleep up to 6 guests.


The cottage has a traditional feel with Aga and beamed ceilings but with modern touches including WiFi, flat screen TVs and iPod dock.  There are stunning country views  of the estate gardens from all bedrooms and ample parking. 

The cottage path leads to the front door where inside to the left is the dining kitchen with Aga, microwave, and dining table to easily seat 6 persons.  Separate laundry room/utility room and toilet with wash hand basin.  To the right of the front door is the cosy lounge with wood burning stove in a feature brick fireplace.  A double sofa bed can accommodate 2 additional guests (£25 linen charge).

Upstairs to Master bedroom with 6ft super-king sized bed (can be split into two single beds on request), ensuite bathroom with bath, shower over the bath, basin and toilet.  Bedroom 2 is a twin bedded room, (can be made up as a 6ft double on request).   House bathroom with bath, shower over the bath, basin and toilet.  Welcome pack.

Gardener's Cottage has a sitting-out space to enjoy warm days with table and chairs for guest use.

Although in a tranquil location, it's only a short walk to a bus stop at the end of the drive where there is public transport to Harrogate and Ripon and a short drive to Lightwater Valley, Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal.

The additional property Chauffeur's Loft is located opposite and can be reserved separately for 2 persons or to accommodate a group of 8 persons in total with Gardeners Cottage.

Gardener's Cottage is an absolute gem! The house is immaculate and has everything you need for a short or long stay. The house was more than adequate to accommodate 6 adults (2 on a large sofa bed in the lounge room) and bedding and large towels were supplied. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, baking dishes as well as plenty of cutlery, crockery etc. The location was lovely as the house is situated on a large property so you are surrounded by trees, paddocks and sheep (you might also see rabbits and hedgehogs too). You can hear the road a little during the day but this wasn't an issue and you can't hear anything at night. It was such a pleasure to walk around the garden and to eat breakfast at the outside table. The house feels secluded but you are still only about a 5 minute drive to Ripon where there is a good sized Sainsbury's, bakeries, coffee shops, pubs etc

We found a lovely property to stay in for a 5 night break this Easter. The information provided to us was clear and helpful and we had no problems at any time. We stayed at Gardener's Cottage, Hollin Hall near Ripon. The housekeeper we contacted was lovely, very helpful and kindly posted back my son's rucksack which he left behind. The property was well equipped and spacious in a beautiful setting facing fields and daffodils. We were very pleased with the cottage and experience, would be happy to go back.

Fantastic cottage in an idyllic location with stunning country views from every window. All mod cons in the kitchen, comfortable lounge with good internet and plenty of TV channels available. Super bathrooms and extra comfy beds. An all round wonderful stay.

Was even nicer and more spacious than the pictures suggested. Beautiful location. Only minor drawback was the AGA which is not really suitable for simple holiday meals. But really enjoyed our stay.
