The perfect romantic bolthole, welcome to Blossom! Tucked away in the green landscapes Nidderdale but just 30 minutes from cosmopolitan Harrogate, this gorgeous boutique retreat is perfect for couples wanting that rural/ urban balance. Comfortable elegant interiors promise a stylish and grown up stay.
Blossom is set within a larger building which has been completely refurbished into three exquisite luxury holiday homes. Each with their own separate front door, they have all been given a luxurious and timeless appeal.
You enter Blossom via the kitchen, an impressive room boasting vaulted ceilings and muted classic colours. The cream units are paired with a sleek work-top, and the cupboards are well-equipped with everything you'll need. All the usual mod cons are provided including a microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washer/dryer. Make your way through to the generous dining area, perfect for long lazy breakfasts or romantic candlelit dinners. If you don't feel like cooking one day, make use of the superb restaurant situated to the side of the main building.
A few steps up takes you into the living room area, a pleasant light-filled room boasting stunning views of the Yorkshire Dales. A cosy gas fire keeps your toes nice and warm and soft throws on the comfy sofas are perfect to curl up under. There's a large flat screen SMART TV in here, along with DVD Player, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth music system.
Head upstairs to discover the large en-suite bedroom. The gorgeous king-size bed is dressed in crisp white cotton bed linen and features a striking bespoke headboard. There's another SMART TV in here, perfect if you fancy lazing about in your PJs with some morning TV. The en-suite bathroom has a bath with a shower head on the taps. Make some time for an indulgent soak, the only way to end a day's walking in the Dales!
Blossom has a stunning location set near the charming village of Glasshouses in the heart of beautiful Nidderdale. As you would expect from the Yorkshire Dales, the scenery here will take your breath away. Enjoy the drive up and soak up the countryside on the way.
One of three luxury boutique apartments within the same building, the setting for Blossom offers best of both worlds; the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the cosmopolitan delights of Harrogate less than 30 minutes away. There are plenty of gorgeous walks right from the doorstep, and if you don't fancy cooking one night there's an excellent restaurant situated to the side of the building. For those really special occasions the Michelin-starred Yorke Arms is also just a few miles away.
Blossom is set in breathtaking Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are bags of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance including the fabulous Brimham Rocks and famous Three Peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent. And with miles of stunning walks and mountain bike trails literally from the doorstep, the cottage is heaven for lovers of all things outdoors. Mountain bike hire is available locally.
There are countless charming Yorkshire towns and villages close by including Pateley Bridge and Ilkely where you'll find among other delights the oldest sweet shop in England, a Michelin-starred restaurant and the quintessentially Yorkshire tea-room Bettys. Indulge in a buttery Fat Rascal here before a pleasant stroll along the River Wharfe.
And no trip to this corner of Yorkshire would be complete without a day out in Harrogate. This elegant Victorian Spa town is bursting at the seams with antique shops, cafes, independent boutiques and restaurants. And the RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr are a must-see too.
And for eats you'll find no shortage of excellent gastro pubs and restaurants in the area, including the fantastic Timble Inn. This luxury 5 Star Inn/restaurant dates back to the 18th Century and is set in the beautiful Washburn Valley just a few miles away.
