Only 11.5 miles away, the spa town of Harrogate is a must-visit for a Betty's cup of tea and spot of window shopping.

At one end of the space, a comfortable sofa, dining table for two and TV/DVD provide comfort throughout the day. Look out over the fantastic country views or settle down with your favourite book, accompanied by a mug of steaming hot tea or glass of something crisp and cool. This end of the property also has access to the bedroom. Heading through a door, you will find a cosy room with a full king-size bed. At the opposite end of the open-plan layout, a cute and compact kitchen has everything you could need for culinary bliss, including a gas hob, oven/grill and dishwasher. Separated by a dividing wall, this end of the property also houses the bathroom, with WC and walk-in shower.

Lovely cottage, with a generous hamper provided upon arrival. Great location for exploring with Fountains Abbey close by and dog friendly day outs. The views from the cottage were beautiful and the cows in the opposite field provided great entertainment!

We stayed at this cottage over new year with our dog and had a wonderful time. We were welcomed with a homemade cake (which was delicious!), a hamper of goodies and a bottle of fizz which was all very welcome and appreciated. The cottage was very cosy, clean and was exactly what we wanted for a nice quiet getaway over new year. The views out of theRead more window were beautiful and you felt slap bang in the middle of the countryside with plenty of peace and quiet. Close to lots of lovely walks too! Hide
