This charming, semi-detached, stone built cottage sits back in a peaceful location, and offers everything you need for a relaxing stay. The cosy living room, with a wood burner and comfortable sofa with warm throws, invites you to grab a good book, curl up and relax. There’s a Smart TV with Freesat and Blu-ray player, as well as games and books to keep you entertained. Wi-Fi is included too. The corner booth with pretty cushions and cottage style table, is a wonderful place to sit and take time over breakfast and a morning coffee, while planning the day ahead.

The kitchen has stylish shaker-style units and oak worktops, and is fully-equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine and small fridge/freezer. The cupboards are stocked with all the equipment you’ll need during your stay, complete with a Tassimo coffee maker for your morning coffee. Both bedrooms are attractively dressed in the finest cotton bed linen. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and walk-in wardrobe. The second smaller bedroom offers 3ft bunk beds. The bathroom is fully tiled, and for your convenience, has a bath with shower over, and basin set within a stylish vanity unit.

To the side of the property is a small terraced area, set within the neighbouring cottages. With a garden table and chairs, imagine coming home after a day exploring, firing up the barbecue, and enjoying a glass of wine as the sun goes down. In the springtime, the terrace is set with attractive planters and awash with colour.

Set in breathtaking Nidderdale, this property is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and for the outdoor enthusiast, there are no limits to the number of cycling trails and walking routes. The Three Peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent draw in climbers and trekkers from all across the world. To enjoy a more leisurely pace, take a walk around nearby Gouthwaite Reservoir for some spectacular waterside views. Following the success of the Tour de France Grand Depart in 2014, Yorkshire is renowned for its annual cycling event, the Tour de Yorkshire, and welcomes many cyclists to the area. The famous cycling challenge, the Cote de Lofthouse, starts its ascent right behind the cottage.
No trip to this corner of Yorkshire would be complete without a day out in the Victorian Spa town of Harrogate which is just over 16 miles away. This elegant town is bursting at the seams with antique shops, cafés, independent boutiques and restaurants, and of course the famous Betty’s Tea Rooms. Shop 8 miles, pub and restaurant 150 yards.

About the local area

Known for its splendid Victorian architecture, huge parkland gardens and its health spas, Harrogate has plenty to offer for a great break in the country. While it lies just 20 miles from York, Harrogate and its surrounding area have enough attractions to make it an ideal holiday destination in its own right.

Among the highlights here are the famous Pump Rooms, which continue to function today just as they did when they pumped water to the Royal Baths from the mid-ninteenth-century.

Also well worth a visit are the parkland areas of Harlow Carr Gardens and Valley Gardens, both of which are open all year round and have a wealth of fascinating plants and wildlife. Between enjoying the gardens, you may want to visit the famous Betty's tea shop for a spot of lunch.

Many of the attractions, however, lie just outside Harrogate itself. For example, Knaresborough Castle -- situated on the York Road, three miles out of town - dates back to the 12th century and sits gloriously on the banks of the river. A little further out (15 miles) is the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. Built in the 12th century, the abbey grounds include a water mill and an exquisite Elizabethan mansion. The grounds of Studley Royal, meanwhile, are home to more than 500 deer.

Further highlights include Harewood House (7 miles out of town), Skipton Castle (20 miles) and the Settle to Carlisle Railway line, which starts at Settle (30 miles from Harrogate) and is regarded as one of the most spectacular lines in the country.
