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.
Enjoying a rural location on the owner’s working farm, tails will wag at this delightful single-storey stone cottage on the south-eastern edge of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Take the lead along one of the many countryside walks directly from the cottage’s front door. The wildlife haven of Lindley Reservoir is only a mile from the cottage for peaceful walks, listening out for the sound of the woodpeckers in the surrounding trees. The historic towns of Harrogate (10 miles) and Ripon (19 miles) are within easy reach for days out exploring the ancient streets and scenic parks.
Put your best paw forward up the stone steps that lead to your front door before entering your rural retreat. Decorated in neutral shades, your open-plan living space has a light and airy feel where your pup will never be far from sight. Rustle up hearty family meals in the bright kitchen area to share at the centrally positioned dining table. After a long walk, sink into one of the comfy sofas and relax with your hound at your feet. When it’s time to turn in, there are two spacious bedrooms, one super king-size and one king-size, both of which can be made up as twins on request. There is also a generous shower room. Outside, soak your limbs in your private hot tub while your hound stretches their paws on the lawn.
Your holiday home is not to be sniffed at with the range of walks from the front door. Explore the 58 acres of colourful garden, parkland and woodland at RHS Garden Harlow Carr (7.5 miles). Discover the dungeons and secret castles at Knaresborough Castle (16 miles), before rambling down the river in search of Mother Shipton’s Cave and the amazing Petrifying Well. Discover the ancient Roman mosaics at dog-friendly Aldborough Roman Site (21.5 miles) and stroll the clearly laid-out defences.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
