A spacious rural retreat in a sleepy village located within the gorgeous Nidderdale area, within driving distance of the cosmopolitan Harrogate, offering a best of both worlds' getaway to the Dales.

Welcome to this beautiful and spacious one-bedroom holiday home set in a gorgeous rural location in the Dales and just 11 miles from Harrogate. Perfect for couples or solo travellers looking for a grown-up country retreat, with stunning walks from the doorstep.

This property is a delicious mix of old and new, with historic stone walls giving way to a bright and contemporary interior. Inside, the ambiance is one of elegance and luxury with thick soft carpets underfoot and top-quality furnishings throughout. And you'll be pleasantly surprised at how spacious it is inside.

Downstairs you'll find a large open-plan kitchen and dining area. The kitchen comes well-equipped with everything you could need including a dishwasher and washer/dryer. Dining at the chic glass table is a pleasure, whatever the time of day. It's the perfect spot to settle yourself down with a glass of bubbly while your other half rustles up something delicious for dinner. And if you need extra entertainment there's a TV provided for you.

At the heart of the sitting room is a striking cream wood burner. Fire it up in the evenings to enjoy cosy nights by the fire with an old movie playing in the background. There's a TV which includes SKY and a DVD player for your enjoyment. Wi-Fi is also provided. Sink down onto the comfy seating and relax.

Make your way up the stairs to find a large master bedroom complete with a king-size bed. Natural light floods into this warm and comfortable room from a large skylight window. There's a TV on the wall if you fancy catching up with news in the morning. Indulge with a long lazy breakfast in bed while you decide which of Yorkshire's amazing attractions you'll visit later that day.

Opposite the bedroom is the bathroom boasting a fabulous roll-top bath and a separate walk-in shower. As with the rest of the cottage, you have a luxurious feeling of space in here, it's the perfect spot for a long hot soak each evening. Luxury hand wash and lotion complete the scene.

This property is in a beautiful location, set amongst the rolling green hills of Summerbridge in Nidderdale. Approached via a private lane, it offers the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the delights of cosmopolitan Harrogate just 11 miles away. With stunning walks and mountain bike trails from the doorstep, the cottage is heaven for lovers of all things outdoors and for eats you'll find no shortage of excellent gastro pubs and restaurants in the area.

Harrogate is an absolute must if you're staying here. Encircled by its famous Stray, 1,000 acres of horseshoe-shaped grassland, the Victorian spa town of Harrogate has a bright and breezy open-air feel and is characterised by its impressive floral displays. As you would expect of such a bustling upbeat town, Harrogate boasts over 300 bars and restaurants together with all the shops, swimming pools, cinemas, parks and gardens you could ever wish for.

Head 5 miles in the opposite direction and you will find Pateley Bridge, 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 fantastic 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 AONB and immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are bags of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance, including the much-loved Brimham Rocks, just 2 miles from the cottage - so lots of options for day trips!

Beautiful cottage in a quiet location. Five minutes walk into Summerbridge with a small shop, tea-room and pub (The Flying Dutchman). The pub isn't great but it has a beautiful beer garden at the back and you can take dogs in. A much nicer pub is the Royal Oak Inn in Dacre, just another 10 min walk. Friendly staff (the landlord even offered to giveRead more us a lift home after we'd had a few drinks watching the football on TV on Sun afternoon), nice beers, nice food, and two beer gardens. Hide

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.
