Colcote Cottage is an adorable 2-bedroom luxury holiday cottage nestled away in a leafy Harrogate suburb. Like something out of a fairy-tale, its sweet chocolate box exterior houses a contemporary and stylish cottage, with a delightful enclosed rear garden too. Perfect for couples and young families looking for somewhere special to stay while exploring the delights of Harrogate and the surrounding Yorkshire Dales.
Colcote Cottage is hidden away down a very quiet street in one of Harrogate’s affluent neighbourhoods. Accessing the cottage to the side you’ll enter via the large open plan kitchen/dining room. A gorgeous light-filled room which looks out to the pretty lawned garden to the rear.
The contemporary style kitchen includes all the expected mod-cons and features a beautiful kitchen island, the perfect spot to perch yourself with a glass of bubbly each evening while the other half cooks up a storm! The kitchen also includes a sweet little snug area next to the French doors, ideal for settling down on the comfy sofas with a good book…
Step through into the delightful sitting room with its cosy vibe and natural good looks. Settle down with a movie while the wood-burner keeps you nice and toasty or have a go at a jigsaw puzzle and exercise the brain a little. An LCD TV / DVD Player and Wi-Fi are included. The pretty windows look out onto the front garden and the peaceful leafy Avenue beyond.
Upstairs you’ll find the gorgeous master bedroom to the front which features a dressing room and pretty white iron bed. With the sun streaming through the windows indulge yourself with a lazy Sunday morning in bed with the Sunday papers. The second bedroom is a very sweet twin room which is set at the back of the house – perfect for the kids or those who enjoy their own space at night.
The large family bathroom is absolutely lovely. With bags of space, there is a sumptuous roll-top bath to enjoy as well as a walk-in monsoon shower. Light a few candles and treat yourself to a little pamper session each evening!
Outside Colcote Cottage boasts a very pretty, private rear garden with a lawned area and patio with table and chairs. A sun-trap in the warmer months as it’s completely enclosed.
Colcote Cottage is set down a quiet leafy suburb in the grand Victorian Spa town of Harrogate. Regularly listed as the best place to live in the UK, Harrogate is a truly gorgeous Yorkshire town which combines traditional elegance with contemporary style effortlessly.
Best known for its antiques and fine art, you’ll find 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 upmarket 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!
Colcote Cottage is also very close to the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors so makes the perfect base from which to explore the glorious Yorkshire landscape and its many stunning natural sights. The breath-taking Nidderdale and Wensleydale beyond are just a short drive away, and to the South West you can be driving through some of the most dramatic Dales scenery within minutes. We highly recommend a day trip to gorgeous Ilkley combined with a visit to Bolton Abbey – all just a short drive away.
York is within easy reach and a day-trip to this beautiful medieval city is well worth it. So lots of choice, if you can drag yourself away from this beautiful cottage!
