Designed from the book Small Architecture, this former coach house has been cleverly converted into a bijou retreat for two. Located at the edge of the Stray parkland where you can enjoy walks from the door, this small but perfectly formed building is situated just 0.5 miles from the centre of the vibrant spa town of Harrogate, where there are a whole host of amenities within easy reach. Take a trip around Valley Gardens, visit an exhibition at the Convention Centre or indulge in a dip at the Turkish Baths. For those wanting to venture further afield, Nidderdale AONB and the Yorkshire Dales National Park are just 5 miles away, boasting a wealth of stunning walks and cycle trails.
Step through the wooden and stone exterior into this delightful holiday home which is the epitome of tiny living, complete with underfloor heating to keep you toasty. You’ll find exquisite interiors where no attention to detail has been spared and every inch has been cleverly designed with comfort and style in mind. Bright, neutral and oozing contemporary chic, the property has been accessorised ingeniously with statement pieces that add an additional touch of elegance whether you are curling up for a restful night’s sleep or feasting by candlelight.
Enter through a small entrance hall and cast aside your outdoor gear, making the most of the spaces to hang coats and the cupboard to tidy away boots or cycling gear after a day exploring the Dales. To the right is a handy breakfast bar where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee perched high on the stools. This leads through to the state-of-the-art kitchen; a masterpiece of design thanks to the clever shelving and integrated appliances. There is an electric oven, induction hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher and Nespresso coffee machine for all your culinary, laundry and caffeine needs, plus a thoughtful welcome pack of essentials to kick start your stay.
Climb the stairs to find a bright yet cosy king-size bedroom with vaulted ceilings and plenty of space to cuddle up on the sofa situated in the corner. Watch your favourite films on the TV and share a bowl of popcorn, then at bedtime you can stargaze through the skylight. Just off the bedroom is a stylish en-suite shower room for invigorating showers after your adventures.
Despite having no dedicated outdoor space, this property is just 100 metres from the Stray, comprising 200 acres of grassy parkland. Time it right to enjoy annual Bank Holiday funfairs or watch a local football match. Alternatively, just stroll the floral spaces and watch kite flyers testing out their skills.
