For a blissful getaway as a family or a couple, this beautiful property has a lot to offer from the sleek country-style interiors to the luxurious private hot tub. Ideally located between the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, a wealth of adventures await for all ages, including a visit to Thorp Perrow Arboretum and Bird of Prey Centre (8 miles) for its peaceful atmosphere.

Bursting with character thanks to the charming wood burner and traditional piano, the living room will ensure you feel at home within an instant as you curl up on the soft sofas to watch a film. Next door, the generous open-plan kitchen/diner has further sofas for socialising, as well as a fantastic modern kitchen set-up and bench-style dining table for family feasts.

One of the rooms features a king-size zip and link bed which can be made up as a twin upon request, whilst the other has a standard king-size bed.

You’ll be delighted by the array of days out available in the local area for all ages. Take your pick from a trip to Lightwater Valley Theme Park (9 miles) and Monk Park Farm (10 miles) with the children, or spend a day perusing the delights of the city of Harrogate (20 miles), soaking up the Georgian architecture or treating yourself to a spa. The two national parks (within 12 miles) offer an array of opportunities for walking and cycling surrounded by natural beauty with areas such as Yearsley Woods (25 miles) providing a great day out for all.

The owners were generally available and always very friendly and helpful.
