Perfectly situated to enjoy a relaxed holiday in quiet pleasant surroundings. Despite being surrounded by attractive countryside, this property has excellent road links to nearby York, Leeds, and Harrogate, all of which can be reached within a thirty-minute drive, offering a huge number of attractions and shops, as well as plenty of places to eat. For stocking up on essentials, or popping out for lunch, the market town of Wetherby is 5 miles south of the cottage. Alternatively, Harrogate, York and Leeds are a short drive and provide an abundance of attractions. Families will enjoy nearby Stockeld Park, Leeds Royal Armouries, Harewood House, Jorvic Viking Centre and many museums, castles and abbeys nearby. Don’t forget to pack your glad rags to enjoy a fun filled day at York or Wetherby Races.

Enter through the front door into the hallway with plenty of space for coats and boots. Head into the large kitchen with breakfast bar. Prepare a meal in the well-equipped kitchen with a ceramic Rangemaster electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washer dryer. Moving through into the open-plan lounge/diner, the lounge area has comfy seating so after a long day you can cosy up on the sofas with something good on the TV with netflix or you can relax with a sound of your choice from the Alexa Sonus with Spotify. The dining area seats four, ideal for a celebration or catching up with friends and family. There are large sliding doors out to the patio area, and original period feature rolling shutters.

The jewel in North Yorkshire's crown, we think York is one of the best short break destinations in England and is a favourite amongst even the most seasoned of travellers. This ancient walled city has been the north's spiritual capital for 2,000 years, but that's not to say it is stuck in the past; York's affluent population and its influx of tourist pounds has helped to create a cultural and commercial oasis. History seeps out of every cobbled street, but the crooked old buildings house a fantastic range of contemporary designer shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Everywhere in York is easily reachable by foot as this small but perfectly formed city houses most of its main attractions within the city walls. Middle Ages' town planning means it can take quite some time to get your bearings but finding your way around the labyrinth of warped streets is part of the fun. Make sure you take in York Minster, The Shambles, the Railway Museum and Betty's tea room whilst you're there.

If you are looking for outside space in which to relax, you have the choice of a number of parks and gardens, including Dean's Park next to the Minster, the Yorkshire Museum Gardens and next to the River Ouse, and slightly further afield, Rowntree Park with its children's playground, tennis courts and bowling green.

If walking or cycling is your thing, there are lots of beautiful paths and routes in the area. Its central location also makes a great base from which to explore the rest of glorious Yorkshire, with the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and Yorkshire Coastline all within easy reach for beautiful walks and adventurous days out.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley (30 miles) is within easy driving distance and is well worth a visit. Head 25.5 miles east to find Malton, another gorgeous market town offering lots of lovely independent shops and cafes to indulge in, or the charming market town of Easingwold is a great option at 17.5 miles from the city.

Also worth a visit is the gorgeous Yorkshire town of Harrogate (15.5 miles), which combines traditional elegance with contemporary style.

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. The RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr (17.5 miles) are also a fantastic option for families.

The cottage was lovely. Clean, warm and very comfortable. We were very well looked after by the owner Katie, she could not have been more helpful with all sorts of support for us and our 4 month old daughter. Outstanding!
