Welcome to Carr Well Barn, a fabulous 3-bedroom luxury holiday cottage nestling in the heart of Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With its stunning interiors and impressive grounds there's so much to love about this beautiful barn conversion. And all within 15 minutes' drive of central Harrogate, a heavenly Victorian Spa town packed with cosmopolitan delights.
Carr Well Barn is the result of an exceptional refurbishment which has transformed this traditional Yorkshire stone barn into a unique and luxurious family holiday home. The first thing you'll notice is the sense of space, both in the reception rooms and in each bedroom - plenty of room for 6 adults to spread out comfortably. This is closely followed by a sense of quality, no expense has been spared in this project, from the (heated) solid oak floor underfoot to the immaculate fixtures and fittings throughout. The Molton Brown toiletries in each bathroom are the icing on the cake.
Entering the house via a stable door the first room to discover is the large living room. A floor to ceiling arched window with views out to the gardens and pond beyond give this room a real wow-factor. There's also a wood-burner set within an elegant stone hearth, perfect for those cosy evenings by the fire, and an LCD TV / DVD Player and full SKY Package to keep you entertained. Wi-Fi is included too if you need to catch up online. Bespoke wooden shutters and underfloor heating complete the luxury feel.
Make your way down a few steps and into the lovely kitchen / dining room featuring a heated stone tile floor and charming family dining table. There's also a snug area with leather chairs and another LCD TV - perfect for teenagers to escape from the adults, or vice-versa! The shaker-style kitchen includes a sleek black granite work-top, range of SMEG appliances including a retro-style fridge-freezer and a dishwasher for your convenience. There's also a separate utility / boot room housing the washing machine and dryer.
There are 3 large and very peaceful bedrooms in Carr Well Barn, all of which come complete with their own TVs and en suite bathrooms. The first of the bedrooms is set on the ground floor; a stylish room perfect for those with reduced mobility, particularly as it has an en suite wet-room. There is a super-king size bed in here which can also be set up as two singles if preferred. The remaining two bedrooms are upstairs, which you'll find by making your way up the bespoke oak and glass stairs. Both rooms up here feature King size beds, so plenty of room for you to stretch out each evening. One en suite has a bath with power-shower overhead, and the second a walk in monsoon shower.
The outside space at Carr Well Barn is equally impressive with its sheltered stone patio and gravelled courtyard. There is a private pond and summer house set within the owner's grounds immediately to the front of the cottage, available to you by arrangement. And of course there are those lovely views of Nidderdale's lush green countryside beyond. A tranquil rural retreat to enjoy at any time of the year.
There are some gorgeous walks from the doorstep, and if you're into cycling, lockable storage is available at the Barn.
Please note, as with any open water, children and dogs must be supervised at all times around the pond.
This property requires a payment of a £200 security deposit.
Carr Well Barn offers best of both worlds, the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the cosmopolitan delights of Harrogate less than 15 minutes away.
This stunning cottage has an idyllic location set within the lush green countryside of breathtaking Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. As well as a decent local pub about 15 minutes' walk away, 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.
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 minutes from the cottage. And there are many more fantastic restaurants, cafes and on-the-pulse Delis in Harrogate itself.
