Stay in this lovely retreat, set in a rural location with views of the valley. Near to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale, this is the perfect base for an active and fun-filled holiday.

This delightful cottage on the outskirts of the pretty village of Dacre Banks is the perfect property for friends to soak up the rural tranquillity, relax into a slower pace of life and enjoy quality time together. Surrounded by the stunning countryside of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the opportunities for walking and/or cycling are almost endless, with a number of formally recognised trails and routes nearby as well as those that are off the beaten track. Despite the idyllic, peaceful location of the property, the village shop and pub are only within a few hundred metres. The property is also ideally located to explore a number of picturesque market towns and villages, which all have something different to offer in terms of shops, eateries, historic interest and views. There are also a number of attractions nearby to suit a range of interests, such as castles, gardens and natural wonders.

This cottage has been lovingly decorated with close attention to detail; it is full of contrasts which work in harmony together to create the feel of a modern stately home. An eclectic mix of bold patterns and colours blend seamlessly with elaborate, statement pieces of furniture which in turn sit comfortably alongside more contemporary pieces with their smooth, clean lines.

Downstairs, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner offers a large space perfect for socialising and relaxing. The well-equipped kitchen is light, bright and airy with seating available around the island and the dining table. Although it’s open plan, the lounge still feels separate, which creates a sense of cosiness. During the day, light floods in through the large window, but of an evening, you can sink into the comfy sofas and warm up in front of the wood burner-effect electric fire.

Upstairs, there are two well-presented bedrooms (one super king-size and one king-size) with their own unique style. Bespoke, designer headboards and interesting furnishings add a touch of glamour and luxury to both rooms. The first bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower; there’s also another shower room. Completing this floor is the snug/cinema room, which offers an alternative place to retire to at the end of a busy day.

Outside, there is a lovely garden where you can sit, have a BBQ and enjoy the views down the valley.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Nearby Pateley Bridge (4.5 miles) 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, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is 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 (2.5 miles) and the famous Three Peaks. Or check out the cathedral town of Ripon which is also well worth a visit and is just 12 miles away, with its regal castle overlooking the town below. The RHS garden at Harlow Carr (12 miles) is a great place to visit for those that love flowers and plants.

The grand Victorian spa town of Harrogate is regularly listed as the best place to live in the UK and is only 11.5 miles away. 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 Betty's 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. We would also highly recommend a day trip to gorgeous Ilkley (15 miles) combined with a visit to Bolton Abbey, 14 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.

York is within easy reach (29.5 miles) and a day trip to this beautiful medieval city is well worth it.

Lovely place to stay, good location for Harrogate and the surrounding district. Had an enjoyable day at Fountains Abbey and first visit to Brimston Rocks. Beautiful villages not far away, Ripley, Pateley Bridge and Grassington, all of which had some lovely walks.

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.
