This delightful property is located in the pretty village of Darley, within 0.2 miles of the 17th century village pub. Ideally situated for those who enjoy spending time outdoors, with spectacular Fountains Abbey, Brimham Rocks and Ripley Castle just a short drive away. More adventurous guests may like to try out activities such as climbing, gorge walking, and caving, all of which, and many more, are on offer at How Stean Gorge around 14 miles north of the property. To the east of the village, the towns of Harrogate and Ripon are both wonderful places to enjoy day trips: Harrogate with its tearooms and spa, and Ripon with its impressive cathedral.

On entering the cottage, guests will find a downstairs WC and plenty of space for coats and boots. Leading off the entrance hall is a cosy snug with TV and surround sound system. Three steps up from the hallway lead up to the dining room which has been thoughtfully designed offering guests the perfect spot to linger over leisurely meals  prepared in the kitchen which is well-equipped with an AGA, combi oven, microwave, American-style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.  Doors from the kitchen lead through to the light-filled conservatory with views across the lovely gardens.  The lounge is the ideal place in which to relax on one of three comfortable sofas in front of the log burner and simply enjoy spending time with friends and family. Stairs to the first floor lead to the four bedrooms, the first of these features a super-king bed which can be made up as a twin on request. The three further bedrooms include a pleasant twin room and two doubles. One of the double rooms benefits from an en-suite shower and WC, whilst the main bathroom has been finished in a chic, contemporary style with stunning roll-top bath, separate shower, and WC.

Outside, there is a large garden to the rear of the property, offering an expansive lawn surrounded by open countryside. The lawn is overlooked by a patio area for which garden furniture is provided. There is off-road parking available for up to four cars and there is a stable which guests can use for storing bikes etc. Please note that the owner may occasionally need to access a garage.

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.

Ivy Cottage was comfortable, spacious, well equipped and the location was great for exploring Nidderdale. There are walks from the door, The Wellington pub is just a short walk up the road and there is a large garden to relax in.

Beautiful area of the country. Walking good (trails everywhere), and cycling good (some challenging hills). Liked the warmth of the Aga, especially first thing in the morning ! Colours of the leaves at this time of year are lovely - particularly splendid in the parks in Harrogate and in the grounds of Bolton Abbey. We found the village store in DarRead moreley to be well stocked and very welcoming staff. Overall, the cottage was an excellent find. Hide
