We may be better known for our country cottages in rural Yorkshire locations but Gorgeous Cottages also have an selection of altogether more urban properties in towns and cities such as York, Harrogate, Helmsley and Richmond.
If you fancy being close to the centre of things, these fabulous pads could be right up your street!
York – Pear Tree House
The 2-bedroom Pear Tree House is in a prime position for enjoying the best of York, with the added benefit of private parking just moments from the front door. Everything is extremely high spec so you’ll feel like you’re in a 5-star hotel and the garden has a great view of the city walls.
Each bedroom has its own floor and private bathroom. It’s like having your own personal suite!
York is a fabulous mix of style and history and Pear Tree House is close to major attractions like Jorvik and York Minster. You’re also in walking distance of a range of bars and shops – The Shambles is just a 5 minute walk away.
Harrogate – The Penthouse
The Penthouse is an ultra-stylish retro pad that’s within walking distance of the centre of Harrogate, located in the leafy Duchy area.
The star of the show here is the long living area with floor to ceiling windows opening onto a fantastic balcony. Perfect for enjoying a drink on and watching the world go by! Find out more.
Harrogate has an impressive choice of bars and restaurants, whether you prefer a champagne brunch or a burger washed down by a craft beer. There are also lots of shops to browse, ranging from small independents to large chains, if you fancy a bit of retail therapy.
Richmond – Xanadu
Xanadu is a small but perfectly formed little cottage that is right in the centre of Richmond. The cool, contemporary style includes sleek white kitchen units, black granite worktops, solid oak floors and splashes of bright colour.
It’s a one-bedroom townhouse property that’s grade II listed and just a couple of minutes from the cobbled market square. It’s also pet-friendly if you want to take a dog on holiday with you. Find out more
Richmond is a historic market town with an 11th century castle and a selection of fine Georgian architecture. There’s a good selection of restaurants to choose from including the French style Rustique and Italian restaurant La Piazza.
Rose Cottage – Helmsley
Rose Cottage is an absolutely stunning 3-bedroom townhouse that is located right behind the market square in Helmsley. It is stylish and elegant with open-plan kitchen/diner, a large living room and a separate snug.
The property has 3 bathrooms in total (including two en-suites) and there is also a sheltered courtyard garden to enjoy in the warmer summer months. Find out more.
Helmsley is the only market town in the North York Moors National Park and has a great selection of independent shops (including the award winning Hunters of Helmsley).
You’ll also find plenty charming tearooms and quality restaurants to enjoy anything from a coffee and cake to a full blown gourmet dinner. We recommend trying the Michelin-starred Star Inn at Harome which is just a couple of miles away.
