Description

Rosy Mantle is a delightful semi-detached cottage set in the village of Spofforth just 6 miles from Harrogate. Built in the 1850s, the cottage has been renovated in 2019 to a very good standard and has a contemporary feel without losing the traditional cottage features. The large living/dining room has bi-folding doors leading out to the enclosed garden and seating area.
The historical village of Spofforth is just a short stroll from the cottage, which was in the hands of the Percy family right up until the 17th century. They built a manor house and castle, the ruins of which still stand today. The village has a shop, a couple of village pubs and the All Saints Church in the centre of the village. Rosy Mantle is a great base to visit the Yorkshire Dales and the wonderful sights of Harrogate and Leeds. The victorian town of Harrogate, with its spa and Turkish baths, is also home to many shows and attractions. The highlight of the year is the Great Yorkshire Show, the largest agricultural show in the UK, an iconic three day event. Another famous attraction of Harrogate is Betty’s tearooms. Enjoy a tasty afternoon tea then a stroll around the beautiful gardens that the townsfolk are so proud of or have a wander along The Stray, over 200 acres of parkland that surround the town. Fishing is available just 1 mile away (at cost). Shop and pub/restaurant 400 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.
