Farmland cottage offering charming accommodation for up to five guests, situated in an ideal location for enjoying country walks as well as taking day trips to nearby Harrogate.

This property enjoys a quiet rural location on the owners working farm in the North Yorkshire countryside, on the south-eastern edge of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are many miles of leisurely country walks to be enjoyed direct from the propertys front door, including the enjoyable walk around Lindley Reservoir which will be of particular interest to wildlife enthusiasts, as the area is home to a large number of bird species including goldcrest and woodpeckers. To the north-east of the property, within a twenty-minute drive, the spa town of Harrogate is a fantastic place for a day trip, as are the wonderful gardens at RHS Harlow Carr which visitors will pass on the way into the town.

 

Several stone steps lead up to the front door of this farmland property, opening into the open-plan living space, comprising a lounge/kitchen/diner. The main part of the room is taken up by the lounge area which offers comfortable sofas as well as a TV/DVD. The kitchen area occupies the right-hand side of the room, next to which there is a dining table seating four guests. The kitchen area itself is equipped with everything that guests will need to make themselves at home including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. As the property is all on one level, doors from the lounge lead through to the bedrooms and the bathroom. Both bedrooms are spacious rooms which have been simply yet elegantly furnished with pine wardrobes and complementing dressers. The master bedroom is a super king-size room which can be made up as a twin on request, whilst the second bedroom is a delightful king-size room which can be made up as a twin on request which looks out over the rear of the property. For parties of up to five a fold-out single bed can be provided for a small additional charge. The shower room, meanwhile, offers a walk-in shower with a small step up and down and a WC.

 

Outside, the property enjoys a good-sized rear garden with hot tub, which is mainly set to lawn and offers views over the neighbouring fields which can be enjoyed from the garden furniture provided. There is bike storage available as well as off-road parking for two cars. For those who would like a taster of farm life, the owners are happy to arrange private tours of the state of the art milking parlour.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage was very comfortable and there was a nice pub about 10 minutes away for evening meals. Julie could not do enough for us and was always on hand to answer any queries you may have. The views are amazing.

A lovely cottage, decorated and equipped to a high standard, and with great views across the surrounding countryside. A good location for exploring the southern end of the Yorkshire Dales and towns such as Harrogate, Skipton and Ilkley which are only a short drive away. The owner, Julie, made us feel most welcome despite our very delayed arrival!
