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.

Small but beautiful bijou accommodation, spotless and well furnished, perfect for two people. In beautiful countryside but close to the small city of Ripon if you want to eat out. Very handy for Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal so ideal for dog walking especially if youre a NationalTrust member. We had a lovely stay.

A lovely property. A beautiful view from the living room over the fields and of a wonderful tree. All the space has been well used. Friendly and helpful owners who provided lots of treats. The village has a very interesting old church. We visited Fountains Abbey almost everyday to enjoy the walks and scenery. I would highly recommend.

Although "bijou" everything was very high quality, but we did wonder why there was a dishwasher instead of washing machine, as there would not have been enough equipment if we used the dishwasher.
