Property code: G0111

Small but perfectly formed, this delightful bijou cottage is perfectly located for romantic getaways for two.

Enjoy scenic walkies from this idyllic country cottage set within the grounds of a 100-acre private estate in North Yorkshire. Ideal for a couple and their pet, this stone-built bungalow enjoys a stunning elevated position overlooking Nidderdale's Washburn Valley. Take the lead to explore the surrounding moorland, woodland and reservoirs of this picturesque area on foot – or by paw – before curling up in front of the roaring wood burner on chilly evenings.

The open-plan living space is elegantly decorated, with luxury throws and rugs providing comfort for everyone. The kitchen area contains a delicious welcome hamper and all the equipment you need to rustle up romantic meals, and you can hunker down for an evening of TV, film or games as your pup drifts off to sleep by the fire. When it’s time for bed, retreat to the stylish king-size bedroom with TV. Don’t forget to pack your pup’s favourite bedding so they get a good night’s sleep too. To wake yourself up in the morning, enjoy an invigorating monsoon shower in the impressive wet room. Outside, the split-level decked terrace is a peaceful spot to enjoy an al fresco meal or chew on a bone when the sun is shining.

A 9-mile drive takes you to the popular Victorian spa town of Harrogate, where games of fetch can be enjoyed on the vast grass parkland known as The Stray or you can go for a stroll around Valley Gardens. In Knaresborough (15 miles), take your four-legged pal for a walk alongside the Nidd Gorge or explore the mysteries of Mother Shipton’s Cave. Other nearby dog-friendly attractions include Harewood House (12 miles) and Bolton Abbey (13 miles).

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

Excellent cottage perfect for couples. Lots of extra finishing touches which made this 5 star accommodation. Clearly the owners had thought of everything. Peaceful location, great for walks from the cottage itself and exploring nearby Ilkley and Harrogate. Even though the next door property was occupied we were not disturbed by any noise.

What a fantastic little gem of a place to stay! The attention to detail in the property was amazing. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise with lots of other little extras! The only downside to the property is it sits very close to a house catering up to 12 people, the first evening we were there the house was occupied and a very loud and noisy Read moreparty was taking place, thank goodness they left the next day! Wed only stay again if we were assured the property next door were to be empty. Hide
