19th century period property offering stylish accommodation for eight guests, offering spacious gardens in the North Yorkshire village of Darley on the edge of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Within walking distance of the 17th-century pub that lies at the heart of Darley village, this wonderful four-bedroom is perfectly situated to discover the historic towns and spectacular countryside of North Yorkshire. Ramble through the stunning rock formations at Brimham Rocks (10 miles) for impressive views across Nidderdale – on a clear day you may even catch a glimpse of York Minster. Try a new activity at How Stean Gorge (21 miles): test your nerve on the high wire course, explore the natural caves and ravines on a self-guided hike or try your hand at canyoning and climbing.

Surrounded by open countryside, your holiday home offers charming accommodation with bags of space for the whole family. With a choice of rooms to relax in after a day of exploration, spend the evening together in the comfortable lounge where cosy sofas invite you to curl up in front of the wood burner and chat about your day. Catch up on the daily papers in the warm and welcoming snug. The spacious kitchen has everything you need to prepare tasty meals to enjoy in the lovely dining room, where you will find another wood burner to take the chill off cooler evenings. Enjoy a morning cup of Yorkshire tea in the sunny conservatory overlooking the gardens. Head upstairs where you will find four well-appointed bedrooms. Dressed in crisp linens with colourful cushions, the two double bedrooms are restful spaces, one of which benefits from an en-suite shower room. A pleasant twin and cosy super king-size enjoy views across the garden and countryside. Indulge in a long soak in the roll top bath that forms the focal point of the stylish contemporary bathroom. Outside, there is plenty of space for picnics on the expansive lawn or enjoy al fresco meals or early evening drinks on the patio.

Pateley Bridge is a charming little market town very typical of this area of Yorkshire. The main street is peppered with cafes, restaurants, local stores, quality butchers and a wine shop, everything you need to stock up for your stay. You'll also find the self-proclaimed 'Oldest Sweet Shop in England' here dating back to the early 1800s.

Further afield is the grand Victorian spa town of Harrogate, which is regularly listed as the best place to live in the UK. The truly gorgeous Yorkshire town effortlessly combines traditional elegance with contemporary style. And the Duchy suburb is well known as being one of the most desirable postcodes in town.

Best known for its antiques and fine art, Harrogate has antique dealers and galleries around every corner, particularly around the Montpellier Quarter. If buying old paintings and furniture isn't your bag there are a host of other reasons to part with your cash in Harrogate. High fashion outlets nestle alongside lavish interior boutiques, punctuated with enough fine restaurants and cafes to keep you fuelled for weeks.

A visit to Betty's Tearooms is a must and if you have time we highly recommend a session at the famous Turkish Baths. Rejuvenate spirit and soul after a day on the town. If you're travelling with children, Harrogate is famous for its outdoor space with lots of parkland and greenery everywhere including the Valley Gardens.

The RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr (10 miles) are also a fantastic option for a good day out. Guests, both young and old, may also like to visit other picturesque attractions such as the National Trust''s unique Brimham Rocks (3.5 miles) or Ripley Castle and Gardens (9 miles).

We highly recommend a day trip to gorgeous Ilkley (13.5 miles) combined with a visit to Bolton Abbey, 12.5 miles away.

The ancient walled City of York is 31 miles away and well worth the journey as there is plenty to see and do, such as the National Railway Museum, the Jorvik Viking Centre, the Shambles (a labyrinth of cobbled streets packed with shops and eateries) and York Minster Cathedral.

Beautiful cottage in great location. Walking distance to pub with great food, well stocked local shop and lovely footpaths by Darley Beck to the River Nidd. Luxurious and stylish decor. Generous rooms including conservatory with lovely afternoon and evening sun. The table football in the outhouse was an unexpected bonus for our son.

A lovely place to stay which is well located for exploring the Dales. I would recommend The Kingfisher Trail which is a great local walk without the need to drive. Use OS Explorer Map number 298 to return a couple of hundred yards from the door of Ivy Cottage. Nidderdale Llamas is well worth a visit as is town of Knaresborough
