This cottage has a lot to offer - with its chic look, contemporary comforts and gorgeous location, this is the perfect Yorkshire cottage for a grown-up getaway.

Welcome to this unique and seriously stylish two-bedroom holiday home just four miles from the delightful spa town of Harrogate. With its chic look, contemporary comforts and gorgeous location, this is the perfect Yorkshire cottage. As the name suggests, this luxury holiday cottage is set on what was once a railway station platform. Reminders of its heritage can be found all around giving the cottage a comforting sense of history and charm. All of the rooms are set on one level, making it a good choice for those with reduced mobility.

 

Inside you'll find a stunning open-plan living space housing the lounge, kitchen and dining area. There's warm wooden flooring throughout, and lovely views of the surrounding countryside are brought in via floor to ceiling sliding doors. The lounge includes a feature wall filled with sporting memorabilia giving the room a real sense of character and fun. At the centre of this space is a cosy and contemporary wood burner - just pop on your PJs and curl up beside it with a nice glass of red or two. There are plenty of comfy spots to claim as your own and with a large LCD TV/DVD Player, MP3 player and Wi-Fi there's plenty to keep you entertained. And if you prefer to unplug for a bit, you'll find plenty of board games and books to enjoy.

 

Sitting beside the lounge is the fabulous kitchen, complete with a NEFF induction hob, Siemen's microwave/oven, dishwasher and large fridge/freezer. You'll love the sleek white Corian worktops and the kitchen cupboards are well stocked with everything you'll need. There's also a breakfast bar, just the spot for a hearty breakfast or pre-dinner glass of bubbly. For more substantial meals the separate contemporary dining table is perfect. There isn't a washing machine but access to washing facilities are available at the property.

 

There are two bedrooms in the property, a lovely twin room and the main bedroom which is semi open-plan from the lounge. This room features a king-size bed to stretch out on and is found to the right of the living space, separated by the memorabilia wall. The stunning family bathroom/wet-room sits beside the twin bedroom and boasts a double walk-in shower and WC. Underfloor heating in here is a welcome addition.

There is much to enjoy outside including a landscaped garden with lawn and a special spot to enjoy a sundowner. In the summer months throw open the sliding doors to bring the outside into the living area. Rustle up an al fresco lunch to enjoy on the decked terrace, looking down over the old railway line and the Nidderdale countryside beyond. On site chic and unique converted wagon. (see other property in this location at the bottom of the listing.)

 

Overlooking ancient woodland with an abundance of wildlife, you can expect to see the odd deer passing through and there's also a comfortable bench to enjoy your morning coffee on. Glimpses of the old railway signals bring back pleasant memories of its former life.

 

The property welcomes babes-in-arms and children over the age of 8.

The property offers the best of both worlds - the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside, with the cosmopolitan delights of Harrogate less than 6 miles away. There's also a pretty little village within walking distance which is home to a delightful coffee Shop/bistro, village store and post office.

This stunning cottage has an idyllic location set within the lush green countryside of breathtaking Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, immediately situated on the Nidderdale Way. An ideal location for keen walkers, it is also adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. As well as a decent local pub about a mile away, there are bags of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance including the fabulous Brimham Rocks (6 miles). 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 (11 miles) and Ilkley (18 miles) where you'll find among other delights, the oldest sweet shop in England, a Michelin-starred restaurant and the quintessentially Yorkshire tea room of Bettys. Indulge in a buttery Fat Rascal here before a pleasant stroll along the River Wharfe.

No trip to this corner of Yorkshire would be complete without a day out in Harrogate (6 miles). This elegant Victorian Spa town is bursting at the seams with antique shops, cafes, independent boutiques and restaurants. The RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr are a must-see too.

When it comes to dining, you'll find no shortage of excellent gastro pubs and restaurants in the area including many fantastic restaurants, cafes and on-the-pulse delis in Harrogate itself.

Nice immaculately presented cosy cottage with all the amenities you would ever need. The property backs onto a woodland which enabled us to see many different birds, squirrels and butterflies which was lovely as we see nothing like that where we live. Lovely big walk in shower was nice too. What made our holiday extra special was the owners dog GusRead mores, a dachshund which had to be the happiest dog we've ever met and we enjoyed playing with him in the garden. We will definitely be returning. Hide

Lovely rural and quiet location, yet only a 10-15 minutes walk to village pub - serves decent food. Very comfortable home, pretty garden and super views and walks. Within an hour and even half an hour of many attractions. We ran out of time as we were spoilt for choice. Definitely recommend.

This accomodation is the most memorable of all cottages weve stayed in, and not just because its the freshest memory! The beautiful country setting, the quality build and furnishings, luxury appliances and bathroom facilities, and the presence of every kitchen and household item you could possibly wish for. The fact that it is built on a former raiRead morelway platform, next to the station house that is occupied by the incredibly friendly and helpful owners, lends a unique flavour to it. Brilliant!
