Embark on a romantic retreat to this charming countryside cottage set within the tranquillity of a private estate and relax in the serene setting. Decorated in a quirky, characterful style with a lovely courtyard area for a morning coffee, a stay here is sure to be one you’ll remember fondly for many years to come. Spend a day out in the Victorian spa town of Harrogate (7 miles) and you’ll love the architecture, independent eateries and quaint shops where you can collect trinkets from your travels.

Spend time as two in the warm and welcoming open-plan living space which boasts beautiful views over the gorgeous greenery of the estate. Luxurious leather seating and a crackling wood burner add to the ambience of the room creating the perfect setting for reading a book off the shelf or getting cosy for a movie night.

Around the corner is the modern kitchen in deep hues, furnished with a feature Belfast sink and all the equipment you’ll need to rustle up a feast for you both. A table seating two is also on offer for mealtimes or a game of cards whilst you wait.

The bedroom is tastefully decorated with a fabulous king-size bed. Drawers offer ample storage, whilst the dressing table is a perfect place to get yourself ready for the day ahead. Completing the property is the generous, minimalist bathroom, featuring an elegant roll-top bath, a walk-in shower and his and hers sinks.

Outside on the terrace, you can soak in the atmosphere with a cup of tea or a tasty treat at all times of the day whilst guests are also welcome to explore the well-cared-for gardens of Hob Green.

Lovers of plants must visit RHS Garden Harlow Carr (9 miles) which spans 58 acres with a valley and a small stream. Take tea in the cafe and explore the alpine gardens to the exotic gardens filled with vibrant colours; a day out at Harlow Carr offers the perfect balance between scenic walks and places to sit and spend time with your loved one. For a taste of city life, visit York (26 miles) to immerse yourself in the historic area with a visit to the castle and a wander through the Shambles within York City Walls.

Pateley Bridge (11 miles) itself is a charming little market town, very typical of this area of Yorkshire. The main street is peppered with cafes, restaurants, local stores, quality butchers and a wine shop; everything you need to stock up for your stay. You'll also find the self-proclaimed 'Oldest Sweet Shop in England' here dating back to the early 1800s.

Pateley Bridge sits at the heart of the breathtaking Nidderdale landscape, itself an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

There are plenty of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance including the fabulous Brimham Rocks (6 miles) and the famous Three Peaks. Or. check out the cathedral town of Ripon which is also well worth a visit and is just 6 miles away, with its regal castle overlooking the town below. The RHS garden at Harlow Carr (9 miles) is a great place to visit for those who love flowers and plants.

Take a spa day or have a massage at the Turkish Baths in the cosmopolitan town of Harrogate, 7 miles away. Time a visit with the Great Yorkshire Show – it is a massive platform for farmers and local craft-makers to showcase their way of life and their produce on a grand scale. Harrogate is best known for its convention centres and it’s an events hub too, so it’s worth seeing what is on their programme.
