Why Gail chose World

This house is available for the first time as a private dwelling being formerly part of the famous Harewood Estate, owned by the Earl and Countess Lascelles of Harewood , the Queen's cousin. It was built in 1750 designed by John Carr for the workers on the Harewood Estate. It is a very quaint cottage surrounded by similar properties and has enviable views across the Wharfe Valley at the front.

What makes this cottage unique

Wonderful, peaceful stay

My mom and I stayed at this cottage for 4 nights. We enjoyed every minute of the stay and highly recommend walking the village and the Harewood Estate grounds.

Great Trip!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great location for us, in the countryside but close to Leeds, and a very nice cottage. Gail provided some basics like bread and milk and that was really appreciated as we arrived in the UK very late. We would happily go again on our next trip.

Plenty of charm, cozy, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We rented Gail's cottage for 3 nights for our daughters wedding, from the outset we knew we would love it and it lived up to our expectations. Gail was very prompt in giving us the information we needed, there were some nice touches with milk, juice, bread etc left in the fridge and some little extras such as Yorkshire biscuits and a bottle Prossecco. The Cottage was very comfortable and although it was an old cottage it had been tastefully modernised. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to be on the outskirts of Leeds but within easy reach of beautiful countryside.

Fantastic cosy cottage, perfect for some time away.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was incredibly cosy, and in a perfect location for easy access to Harrogate and Leeds. The welcoming bread, milk, butter, eggs, etc made us feel very at home right from the very beginning, and the house had everything we needed for a perfect few days away from it all. The kitchen was fully equipped, and the living room proved to be incredibly comfortable, with a table large enough to work on when required (although the view proved to be a little distracting at times).

All in all this is a perfect place to stay, as a couple or family, if you’re looking for somewhere to relax and unwind, with plenty to do and see nearby.

Father and son Yorkshire expats from Spain,we took the cottage for a month whilst visiting friends and relatives from Scarborough to Windermere. Superb location betwixt Leeds and Harrogate so we felt immediately at home. Owners made us feel welcome and looked-after by responding straightaway in person to assist with the central heating arrangements for my elderly father. Cosy and comfy henceforward as sunshine streams in to make cottage so light and relaxing to spend time in. Separate utility/boot room invaluable and designated parking space particularly helpful. Busy road noise thankfully/reasonably unobtrusive and does not spoil the great views at all My father (over 90) has requested that we return next year - excellent idea!

Lovely house and great host

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice stay in Leeds at this house. It was great to arrive to milk in the fridge, bread, eggs and wine available and the fire loaded. All in all we really enjoyed our stay there. The road noise was an issue for us however. We like to sleep with the window open to air the room and this wasn't really possible due to the road noise from Harrogate Road. I appreciated that it is an A road and the main road connecting Leeds and Harrogate but didn't reckon with it being so busy at night. This also impacted on our want to sit in the front garden. I appreciate that there is nothing the owner can do about this, and it might not affect others as it did us due to our habit of sleeping with the window open. The other thing that could have been better was the amount of storage space for clothes. In our bedroom we didn't have a wardrobe and in the daughters bedroom she had a wardrobe with a couple of hangers. We ended up living out of our cases which you don't expect when you are staying somewhere for more than a night or so. The BBQ area was great and the fact that there is charcoal provided in the store cupboard. All in all a good place to stay. Could be great if the wardrobe situation was addressed.

Owner's Response: Harrogate road is an A road which is not hidden in the description of the cottage .The morning sun rises in this direction. The afternoon and evenings are usually enjoyed at the rear either in the courtyard or on the patio. We have never had any complaints about evening traffic noise . There is a double wardrobe to the second bedroom and a chest of drawers and hanging space to bedroom one . There is also a cupboard on the landing with sufficient storage .
