An idyllic retreat set within a peaceful village in the Yorkshire Dales, offering a tranquil getaway and set close to a number of bustling cities and towns waiting to be explored.
Take a look at this idyllic two-bedroom (both en-suite) country cottage set just 4.5 miles outside the handsome cathedral city of Ripon. With cosmopolitan Harrogate just 15 miles away, this holiday home is the perfect choice for an elegant town and country escape.
Entrance to the cottage is via a pretty courtyard, complete with a fig tree which gives the cottage its name. Step inside the French doors and into a beautiful open-plan living area that includes the lounge, kitchen and dining table. Solid floorboards underfoot and original artwork by the owner gives the room warmth and character.
The lounge area is home to a comfy seating, perfect for curling up on by the fire. The wood burner keeps everything nice and toasty, providing a warm background glow as you settle down for the evening. For your entertainment, you'll find a TV, DVD player, radio and docking station along with Wi-Fi for if you want to catch up online.
Time for lunch. Let's rustle something up in the gorgeous kitchen with its pastel blue tones and rustic farmhouse furniture. All mod cons are provided including an induction hob, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge with ice-box. Coffee fans will enjoy the coffee machine and in the summer months you can enjoy your morning cuppa outside in the courtyard. At the heart of the kitchen is a chunky dining table bathed in sunlight from the French doors, a lovely spot to dine whatever the time of day.
Both bedrooms in this beautiful Yorkshire cottage are upstairs. The stunning master bedroom has a dramatic French king-size bed and features a beautiful en-suite bathroom. There's a bath to sink into each evening and a shower overhead for mornings when you'll be wasting no time in getting out and about. The second bedroom is a twin room which also enjoys an en-suite shower room.
Outside, you'll find a charming courtyard garden complete with a patio and garden furniture. There is also secure storage for bicycles. Lunch alfresco here in the warmer months is a delight and a gas BBQ is provided for those balmy summer evenings. Pour yourself a glass of fizz and settle down, with only the sound of birdsong for company as you enjoy your sundowner in the Yorkshire countryside.
