For a break to the countryside, this single-storey property ticks all the boxes, being surrounded by the owner’s farmland within the Washburn Valley. Flooded with natural light from two large picture windows in the open-plan living area, you can truly unwind and enjoy quality time with your loved ones whilst soaking up the scenery. Right on your doorstep is the beautiful Stainburn Forest and Lindley Wood Reservoir, boasting picturesque walking routes to give you a taste of the Nidderdale AONB.

Light, bright and welcoming, the open-plan living area is the social hub of the home offering a little something for all occasions. With the sweeping landscapes framed by the windows bringing the outside in, you can kick back and relax on the comfortable sofas or watch the local wildlife as you sit at the table and eat your breakfast. The kitchen has been finished to a high standard, ensuring you’ll have all of the equipment you need to cook up a family feast or serve up a takeaway as a treat.

Take your pick from one of two bedrooms, including the master which features a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a slipper bath for long evening soaks. Next door is a generous triple bedroom, great for children with ample room for them to play.

In the evenings, the undercover entertainment area boasts a blissful hot tub, available for use all year round and a table football table where you can unleash your competitive side. On sunny days, the garden is a joy, filled with mature plants, a pond and a stream with plenty of hidden places to take a moment of peace or get lost in a good book.

Plant lovers should relish the opportunity to visit RHS Harlow Carr (7 miles), a beautiful 58-acre garden with a lake, tearoom and a whole host of gardens from alpines to exotics. Enjoy an interesting walk at Brimham Rocks (9 miles) to see the unique formations or head along the River Nidd to Mother Shipton’s Cave (11 miles) which is an engaging experience for families; a stay in the Yorkshire Dales National Park offers a whole host of outdoor days out.

The grand Victorian spa town of Harrogate (8 miles) is regularly listed as the best place to live in the UK. The truly gorgeous Yorkshire town combines traditional elegance with contemporary style effortlessly. And the Duchy suburb is well known as being one of the most desirable postcodes in town.

Best known for its antiques and fine art, Harrogate has antique dealers and galleries around every corner, particularly around the Montpellier Quarter. If buying old paintings and furniture isn't your bag, there are a host of other reasons to part with your cash in Harrogate. High fashion outlets nestle alongside lavish interior boutiques, punctuated with enough fine restaurants and cafes to keep you fuelled for weeks.

A visit to Bettys Tea Rooms is a must and, if you have time, we highly recommend a session at the famous Turkish Baths. Rejuvenate spirit and soul after a day on the town. If you're travelling with children, Harrogate is famous for its outdoor space with lots of parkland and greenery everywhere. The RHS gardens at Harlow Carr are also a fantastic option for families.

Harrogate is also very close to the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors so it makes the perfect base from which to explore the glorious Yorkshire landscape and its many stunning natural sights. The breathtaking Nidderdale is 10 miles north-west, and you will be driving through some of the most dramatic Dales scenery. We highly recommend a day trip to gorgeous Ilkley (11 miles) combined with a visit to Bolton Abbey, 13 miles away.

York is within easy reach (32 miles) and a day trip to this beautiful mediaeval city is well worth it.
