Surrounded by open countryside and woodland, this lovely property is ideal for enjoying glorious rural walks, with the outskirts of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just 4 miles away.

Local attractions include Harewood House (7 miles) and Bolton Abbey (17 miles). There are several historic and bustling market towns with fantastic restaurants, cafes, pubs and independent shops, including Ilkley (11 miles) and Skipton (25 miles). The famous Victorian spa town of Harrogate has a host of attractions, including the Stray, the Royal Pump Rooms and the Valley Gardens (7 miles).

 

Set at the end of a long driveway among lush green fields and woodland, this fantastic semi-detached property has been imaginatively decorated and beautifully furnished. The spacious lounge allows you to unwind in the comfortable seating and enjoy a movie on the TV or admire the garden views from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Exploring further, there's a charming dining room with a feature fireplace which provides a welcoming space to enjoy a family meal. The light and elegantly designed kitchen is fully equipped with everything you may need and features sleek granite work-tops, glossy units and a kitchen island with a handy breakfast bar. The washing machine and dryer are stored in the nearby utility room. The property also features a lovely snug with a TV and a cosy wood burner. The four bedrooms are accessed via two different staircases. On the right of the property, you will find a large master bedroom with a king-size bed and an en-suite shower room. There's also a twin room with an en-suite bathroom. On the other side of the house, stairs lead up to a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a twin room with an en-suite bathroom. All the bedrooms have been stylishly decorated and each has its own TV.

The property is set within the grounds of a large manor house in Wharfedale, just a few miles south of the gorgeous Victorian Spa town of Harrogate. With open countryside and woodland all around, there is a liberating sense of getting away from it all, but with the comfort of knowing the modernities of town life are within easy reach.

Less than half a mile away you'll find a pub and farm shop/deli, featuring the very best of local Yorkshire produce. Within easy walking distance, it's a nice option for lunch if you don't feel like cooking one day.

There are several lovely market towns close to The Copse, with perhaps Ilkley (5 miles) offering the most to enjoy. Highly regarded for its stylish architecture and beautiful floral displays, there's plenty to see and do in this elegant Victorian town. Take a turn around the gardens down by the river, indulge in afternoon tea at Betty's, explore the many independent shops and boutiques, and make sure you pick up something yummy for supper at one of the several up-market delis in town.

If you want to venture a little further, the property is ideally placed to explore the historic market town of Skipton (18 miles) and the exquisite Yorkshire Dales beyond. It's a true walker's paradise and you are very close to the famous Three Peaks of Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent and Whernside.

If you're more of a roamer than a rambler try a stroll around the grounds of nearby Bolton Abbey (12 miles). These striking ruins provide the backdrop to a particularly beautiful part of the Dales and are well worth a visit.

This area of the Yorkshire Dales is home to many charming villages and towns worth exploring. The pretty cobbled streets of Grassington are within 25 miles, with the village of Kettlewell another 5 miles on.

Visiting the gorgeous town of Harrogate (16 miles) is a must during your stay here. Encircled by its famous 'Stray' or '1000 acres' of horseshoe-shaped grassland, Harrogate has a bright and breezy open-air feel and is characterised by its impressive floral displays. As you would expect of such a bustling upbeat town, Harrogate boasts over 300 bars and restaurants together with all the shops, swimming pools, cinemas, parks and gardens you could ever wish for.
