The gorgeous interiors create a 5-star feel and with Harrogate just less than half an hour away, this is the perfect holiday cottage for couples or groups of friends looking for something truly special.

This cottage is a fabulous barn conversion which has seen this old character-filled building transformed into an exceptional holiday cottage. Step inside to discover a wow-factor open-plan living area with a glamourous look set across two levels.

Down a few steps into the lounge you'll find a choice of two handsome armchairs and a comfy sofa to sink into each evening. There is also a Smart TV & DVD Player, Freeview, a Bluetooth speaker and Wi-Fi to keep you entertained all evening. Underfloor heating keeps you nice and toasty whatever the time of year. Back up the steps to find the contemporary kitchen which also creates a cosy, homely feel with its built-in seating. It's the perfect place for cooking, entertaining and hanging out with a glass of fizz. There are all the usual mod cons including a dishwasher, washer dryer and fridge freezer. You will also arrive to a complimentary breakfast box with everything you’ll need for a delicious cooked breakfast.

Both bedrooms in the cottage are located upstairs and boast fabulous bespoke headboards and large en-suite bathrooms. The first of the bedrooms is a statement in style, with luxurious fabrics and fabulous views down the valley. The king-size bed is dressed in the finest cotton linen with an exquisite dark tartan headboard. The vaulted ceilings give the room an airy, spacious feel. The en-suite bathroom features a bath, perfect for those lazy soaks after a long day walking in the Dales, or alternatively there is a shower overhead.

The second bedroom has a touch of country glamour with its stunning large bespoke headboard and super-king bed. Again, this can be set up as a twin if preferred. The en-suite in this room also has a bath and shower overhead. Both bedrooms are a generous size and include flat screen TVs if you fancy retreating to your room for some me-time.

Outside this luxury cottage in Nidderdale you'll find a choice of two patio gardens – one to the front and a lovely sheltered wooden terrace to the rear. Each have the advantage of outdoor furniture and magnificent views down the valley. Settle down for lunch with a view or take your morning coffee in the sun. It's a gorgeous place to just sit and watch life go by, with only the sound of birdsong for company. And if you fancy a spot of outdoor cooking, there's also a BBQ available.

This cottage offers best of both worlds: the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales alongside the cosmopolitan delights of the spa town of Harrogate just over 11 miles away.

This stunning cottage has an idyllic location set on a hill top in breath-taking Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are bags of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance including the fabulous Brimham Rocks and famous Three Peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent. With miles of stunning walks and mountain bike trails literally from the doorstep, the cottage is heaven for lovers of all things outdoors.

There are countless charming Yorkshire towns and villages close by, including Pateley Bridge (4.5 miles) and Ilkely (15 miles) where you'll find, among other delights, the oldest sweet shop in England, a Michelin-starred restaurant and the quintessentially Yorkshire tea room Bettys. Indulge in a buttery fat rascal here before a pleasant stroll along the River Wharfe.

Of course, no trip to this corner of Yorkshire would be complete without a day out in Harrogate. This elegant Victorian spa town is bursting at the seams with antique shops, cafes, independent boutiques and restaurants. And the RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr are a must see too, just a 12-mile drive.

For those of you with a love of food, you'll find no shortage of excellent gastropubs and restaurants in the area, including the fantastic Timble Inn. This luxury 5-star inn/restaurant dates back to the 18th century and is set in the beautiful Washburn Valley around 8 miles from the cottage.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
