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.
