You’ll find indulgent luxury in this superior apartment, which is perfectly positioned for a cosmopolitan break exploring the foodie delights and intriguing retail outlets of the chic town of Harrogate. Plenty of space and flexible sleeping arrangements mean that it would suit a family getaway just as much as a get-together with friends and, if it’s the five-star treatment you’re after, it offers a wonderful blend of chic style and welcoming comfort.

Set on the ground floor, the apartment has been decorated with great attention to detail. Its high-quality furnishings combine with gorgeous colours and interesting materials to create a well-equipped and sumptuous haven.

You’ll all want to hang out in the impressive kitchen/diner, where a range cooker offers the designated chef the opportunity to experiment to their heart’s content while bespoke cabinets provide ample storage. Sit on the stools by the countertop or gather around the breakfast table and plan your adventures, play a game or switch on the Smart TV for some entertainment. For formal meals – perhaps celebrating a special occasion – there’s a separate dining room with an elegant table and chairs. The kitchen is complemented by a separate utility room which has laundry facilities.

When it’s time to kick back and relax you have the choice of the garden room or the luscious lounge with its wood burner in a timber-framed fireplace. In both rooms, you can curl up with a book, listen to some music or switch on the Smart TV.

The apartment boasts three lovely bedrooms, all beautifully decorated, two of which have zip-and-link beds that can be converted between king-size and 2’6” twins on request. They share a superb family bathroom in which a raised, free-standing bath takes pride of place, complemented by a separate shower with a rainfall head.

It’s rare for town-centre apartments to possess a good-sized garden; this place is the exception, boasting an expansive lawn bordered by trees and a patio with a hot tub and dining furniture sheltered under a gazebo. Enjoy a bubbling soak followed by a delicious al fresco supper, all within the privacy of your own outside space.

The grand Victorian spa town of Harrogate is regularly listed as the best place to live in the UK. The truly gorgeous Yorkshire town combines traditional elegance with contemporary style effortlessly.

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 Tearooms 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 (18 miles) combined with a visit to Bolton Abbey, 17 miles away.

York is within easy reach (21 miles) and a day trip to this beautiful medieval city is well worth it.
