Harlow View is a wonderful holiday home just outside the centre of Harrogate. It is just a few minutes walk away to both the The Pine Marten and Shepard's Dog pub as well as to takeaways, cafes, parks and gardens. Accommodation is spread over the ground floor and lower ground floor of a smart stone property. There is space for four people in two bedrooms, with a double sofa bed that increases the potential number of guests to six. Harlow View is dog-friendly and ideal for couples, families, and friends staying in Harrogate for a holiday or attending a conference or an event.
One of Harrogate's best attractions, RHS Harlow Carr's beautiful gardens, is an easy 10-minute walk from the cottage. In addition, you're only a short stroll from Cold Bath Road's delicious delis, eateries and independent shops. With fantastic shops, boutiques, theatres, convention centre, Turkish Baths, and Betty's famous tearoom, the town centre is only a few minute's further. The vibrant cities of York and Leeds are just 20 miles away and easy to reach by car or train.
Harrogate isn't only the perfect holiday destination for indulging in shopping, eating and culture. It's on the doorstep of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the Howardian Hills and within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. If you love walking, cycling and mountain biking, then you'll be in your element whether you're tackling the gritstone peaks, enjoying the rolling countryside, or losing your heart to the spectacular Yorkshire moors. Bike hire and tuition is readily accessible for those who need it.
In addition to York, day trips from Harlow View include visiting Castle Howard, aka Downton Abbey, picnicking at Fountains Abbey or Bolton Priory, exploring Skipton and Knaresborough or shopping and sightseeing in Leeds. The holiday home is available for bookings all year round.
