Situated within the grounds of a historic manor house in beautiful Wharfedale, this handsome property offers elegant accommodation for a family looking for a tranquil North Yorkshire holiday home.

Step back in time and into tranquillity in this sublime semi-detached cottage on the edge of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (4 miles). Unwind with family or friends, and share great memories in this gorgeous green world. Set 26 miles west of York, 12 miles north of Leeds and 7 miles south of Harrogate, enjoy both calm seclusion and proximity to vibrant hubs of history, culture, gastronomy, adrenaline and craft. With a lovely old pub just half a mile down the lane, and four more within 3 miles, you can choose your sunny garden, cosy saloon or glowing snug. Weeton Station (2 miles) has direct links to the major towns and cities. Bask in breathtaking Wharfe Valley views from Chevin Forest Park (5 miles), a haven for rare butterflies and birds. The Arthington Viaduct (3.5 miles) is marvellous for sunrise photos.

As you follow the driveway through lush green fields and woods, you'll sense the unique wonder of this landscape. Hidden within mature gardens and sheltered by trees, you'll glow to know it's yours. In between adventures, unwind in the Scandi-style lounge, with its seductive sofas, garden vistas through the floor-to-ceiling windows, themed art and fabrics and elegant lighting. For more intimate evenings, retire to the glowing wood burner of the comfy snug. Keen cooks will gravitate towards the generous kitchen to prepare glorious local produce from surrounding farms and villages; its spatial flow and grey tones create a stylish space. Will you eat alfresco on the patio or in the garden, around the kitchen island or in the sleek, understated opulence of the dining room? Early birds will want to claim their bedrooms first, so be quick! Each flight of stairs leads to a double bedroom and a twin, although the right flight leads to the master king-size bedroom; but don't worry, all have their own en-suites and TV, and their own unique ambience and joie de vivre. Explore the gardens and woods on relaxed walks.

  • 4 bedrooms, each with TV – 1 king-size bedroom, 2 twins, 1 double room
  • 2 en-suite bathrooms with shower over bath and WC
  • 2 en-suite shower rooms with shower and WC
  • Dishwasher, oven, washing machine and dryer, fridge
  • TV in lounge
  • Wood burner
  • Sheltered patio area with furniture
  • BBQ
  • Ample off-road parking
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Travel cot and highchair available
  • Regret no pets
  • Pub and shop within 0.5 miles

Luxuriate in Harrogate's decadent Turkish Baths, immerse yourselves in a night at the theatre, congregate in the Convention Centre, indulge in Bettys Tea Rooms and lose yourself in The Stray's 200 acres of treasured parkland. Trek with the Nidderdale Llamas around a working farm (16 miles), or hone your holds at the Harrogate Climbing Centre (7 miles); they might literally come in handy amongst the strange stone formations of Brimham Rocks (16 miles). Make a pilgrimage to Bolton Abbey (19 miles).

Beautiful, well equipped cottage with helpful and friendly owners. The cottage is huge and well laid out and we had a fabulous stay. The only reason I havent scored it 10/10 is that the mattresses were a bit lumpy and uncomfortable but other than that I couldnt recommend it highly enough.

Lovely house with excellent space for our mixed-age family group, ranging from two and a half to sixty five and a fair range in between!

We lovRead moreed the fact we had 2 sitting rooms and that every bedroom had an en suite bathroom. My only reasons for not giving 10 across every aspect were the lack of some kitchen things a large family party needs ie water jug, multiple serving bowls, large pasta pan etc, and the poor light blocking of the (otherwise very stylish!) bedroom blinds. The later is a particular problem for light-sensitive oldies and little ones that don't want to go to bed in the summer! But yes we would definitely return, and in fact are planning on doing so.
