Farmland cottage offering a charming stay for up to four guests, in an ideal location for enjoying country walks and taking day trips to nearby Harrogate

This quaint stone-built cottage is in an idyllic location on a non-working farm near the owners’ property. Set in meadow grassland with native woodland nearby, see how many different kinds of wildlife you can spot and pay a visit to the neighbours’ suckler cows and calves in the summer. With ample space for four people, the property is spacious and inviting and offers wonderful views of the countryside around you – reminding you of your proximity to the edge of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (6 miles).

Hang up your coats and store your walking boots in the spacious hallway, following beautiful tiled floors to the kitchen which has a contemporary farmhouse style. Rustic tiles, wooden cupboards and quirky farm-style touches make it a pleasure to cook up a storm in. There is a dishwasher so there’s no need to wash up, but you might fancy it so you can gaze out of the window at the pretty views.

Take three steps down into the cosy lounge/diner, where exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and a wood burner surrounded by a stone fireplace create a peaceful atmosphere. Relax on the comfortable sofas in front of the TV among soothing pastel tones and rich wooden furniture after a delicious meal at the large dining table. There are plenty of books on the bookcase to enjoy curled up on a chair after a long day out, or maybe you can enjoy a board game around the table.

Off the hallway, the stunning king-size bedroom welcomes you in with soft lighting and pretty blue and yellow tones. Large fitted wardrobes mean there’s plenty of space to unpack your clothes, while the en-suite shower room adds a little bit of indulgence to your stay. Relax with a hot shower after a day out walking, or wake yourself up with an invigorating shower and get ready for the morning. Throw open the patio doors that lead from the bedroom to the patio and enjoy a cup of tea on the wooden bench.

Climb the stunning winding stairs to the galleried landing, where a peaceful twin zip-and-link room (which can be made into a super-king-size bed on request) boasts wooden beams and bold colours in the furnishings among vaulted ceilings. Throw open the Velux windows for fantastic views of the fields and woodland for a refreshing start to the day. The main bathroom is also up here, where a corner bath and stylish textured tiles give the room a spa-like feel that’s perfect for an indulgent soak to ease muscle aches and pains.

Outside, a pretty, south-facing patio is the ideal spot for al fresco dining, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner. Sit and enjoy a drink or meal around beautiful countryside views, or head to the shared walled garden where you’ll find plenty of garden games. Kids will love scrambling up the climbing frame and playing swingball or giant Connect 4, all among the beautiful rolling hills. Make sure you get out and explore the many footpaths directly from the property and discover lots of little brooks and rivers.

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 twin zip-and-link (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request and 1 king-size)
  • 1 Bathroom with bath and handheld shower attachment and WC and 1 en-suite shower and WC

A lovely peaceful location with walks straight from front door but still 15 minutes from Harrogate and all its facilities. A very welcoming owner who was helpful throughout, including complimentary biscuits and fruit bowl selection and milk in the fridge. Very thoughtful.

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.
