A wonderful country hideaway, this adorable property offers the chance to completely unwind and relax. Boasting gorgeous interiors and lots of activities and attractions nearby, a dream retreat awaits.

Set in the green pastures of Nidderdale, this bijou bolthole is made for two grown-ups and a favourite pup pal to enjoy this peaceful Yorkshire countryside village, close to the vibrant market town of Ripon. You’ll find a pub (2 miles) and a shop for essentials (3 miles) within easy reach, while off-road parking is available on-site for guests. Revel in the tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales with easy ambles from the doorstep or cycles on local trails.

Step inside this country-style farmhouse where homemade treats and a welcome hamper await. Unwind after a long hike in the open-plan living room, kitchen and dining area, where you’ll find a cosy sofa, dining table, and a TV and DVD for film nights in. Marvel at the countryside views or curl up with a good book (if Fido is not distracting you with a pleading dog lead!). If you fancy a lie-in, breakfast hampers are available on request. Slumber is easy in the cosy king-size bedroom which has colour-changing mood lighting, and there’s a relaxed and stylish shower room. Outside, there’s a private garden where you can rustle up brunch on the BBQ to enjoy at the picnic bench.

You’re just a mile from the dog-friendly Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden, where you can enjoy seasonal events such as apple juicing. Treat your loved one to a memorable meal at the French restaurant in Ramsgill (13 miles). Take a drive to Ripon (4 miles) where a costumed bellman opens the weekly market to the traditional clang of a bell. Or visit the spa town of Harrogate (11 miles) to enjoy tea and cakes at the famous tearoom, discover the town’s spa heritage at the Royal Pump Room Museum, and indulge in pampering at the Victorian Turkish Baths.

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

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

A gorgeous cosy cottage with everything we could have needed. Fabulous location with Fountains Abbey just down the road and Ripon with its individual shops and lovely cathedral. I would highly recommend a stay.
