Detached cottage offering lovingly styled accommodation for six guests, enjoying a quiet village location in the North Yorkshire countryside, within easy reach of York, Leeds, and Harrogate.

This cottage is located in a tranquil rural location in the small village of Cowthorpe, a five-minute drive from the larger well-appointed village of Tockwith with its pub and handy village shop. To the south of the property, the riverside market town of Wetherby is a fantastic place for stocking up on supplies and is home to one of the four racecourses which are within easy reach of the property. For bigger towns and cities, with a host of attractions and places of interest, the property is in an excellent position for making day trips into York, Leeds, and Harrogate, all of which offer plenty for visitors to see and do, including the Jorvik Viking Centre, the Turkish Baths in Harrogate, and the fantastic shopping centres in Leeds.

Five external steps lead from the parking area to the side of this cottage up to the front door which opens onto a welcoming hallway. From here a door opens onto the first of two separate lounge rooms, a light-filled room with sofa seating, a TV/DVD, and patio doors which open out onto the garden. This area opens onto the main lounge, an attractive room which offers comfortable seating clustered around a warming wood burner. A hallway leads from the lounge rooms, past a ground-floor double king-size bedroom and a wet room with shower and WC to the dining room. This gives guests the ideal place to enjoy special meals with friends or family, whilst there is also breakfast bar seating available in the kitchen which is accessed via two steps down. This spacious room has been finished in a sleek, contemporary style and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst a washing machine can be found in a separate utility room. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms - a double room to the front of the house and a twin bedroom to the rear. The shower room on this floor has a shower and WC, whilst there is also a study area on the landing.

Patio doors from the smaller lounge open onto the enclosed patio garden. This pretty area offers guests a lovely place to sit out and enjoy alfresco dining next to the attractive waterfall feature.

This cottage provided the ideal location for our family to meet up. It was lovely to sit inside or in the garden and there was plenty to do for all ages within easy reach.

Beautifully maintained house and garden. Well stocked kitchen. The 2 separate lounges worked well for our intergenerational family. We would not hesitate to recommend Pengarth for holiday makers looking for a rural setting close to York. The nearby train station made getting to York and Knaresborough worry free and cheaper than car parking charges.Read more We would book Pengarth for another holiday. Hide

Beautiful cottage in great location.

This was a lovely holiday home! Very clean and completely spotlessly tidy. A few highlights were the downstairs bathroom which was really lovely, and we particularly liked the layout of the sitting room area- which meant some people could read but others watch the tv, without disturbing each other. This was perfect when travelling in a large group Read moreof varying ages. I also took my young daughter which the house was great for as it was mainly all in one level and very safe with not many hazards around the house. I did provide all the child equipment, but they were very kind to allow our little one to join us. Only tricky part we found was the garden for the dogs- our dog can jump up a small wall so could have got out if not on lead. Many thanks for a lovely trip!! Hide
