We were very warmly meet by Amanda who was in her jodhpurs and doing her yard duties and her horses. Home from home. The Barn was huge lots of room for the four of us. Mum and Dad had the bathroom and we used the shower room downstairs. The bedrooms were lovely. Very light and bright everywhere. Could live here. Great location as in countryside but near Auntie Pat's in Harrogate. Met Amanda's folks, a real family concern. Her Dad is still farming . A definite holiday next time we are up here. Love it. Plus got a hug and kiss when we left. Will be on my Christmas card list this year.
We stayed at the Harrogate apartment / cottage for 6 people for 2 nights.
It was easy to find.. nice n clean...
As stated the 3rd room was a pull out bed but was ok for a crash down....
The second bedroom had no catch or lock on it and so did nt shut properly - no privacy - also had 2 bulbs gone in the bathroom so was a bit dark...
Its lovely and clean and there is a checklist for the visitor to keep it like that but was disappointed with outside as ther were cigarette butts scattered around the seat n table outside at the rear.
Instructions were clear and we did enjoy the time but it was nt cheap so expected a higher spec.... when we have stayed at other places ... this was the most expensive... the spes and facilities have been much more superior.
Not a criticism... maybe a look to a refurb....
The Old Cottage was a lovely retreat from the hustle and bustle of life. Situated just off an alleyway and two minutes walk from the shops, this was perfect for exploring Knaresborough. The owners had thought of everything to make holidaymakers feel restful and at home. The cottage was immaculate and beautifully presented throughout. Thoroughly recommend this cottage.
I would not recommend this apartment. There was no milk left so we could not make a hot drink when we arrived late. Although the apartment was clean and presentable we missed opening windows that you could see out of, rather than roof lights and opaque non opening windows which made the flat feel clostraphobic.the main problem was noise of revellers from the night club next door, and bottles being emptied at 4.00am under the bedroom window , with a cheery 'morning- wakey wakey ' by a very pleasant worker from the club.this flat may be fine mid week, but on Fridays and Saturdays it's like living in a war zone with screaming, shouting , drunken people wanting to have fights with one another, and police sirens wailing. It may be a good location for a hen/ stag weekend if you want to go to the night club next door , but if you want a peaceful city break, I suggest you go else where. Also was charged an extra. £50 by booking.com as I booked through them, rather than direct with Harrogate apartments. Very disappointed.
The Bijou Apartment in Montpelier Street is furnished to a very high standard. The antique furniture and selection of paintings and objets d'art made us envious! Kitchen and bathroom are excellent. The location is central and very convenient, but is also quiet, in a row of interesting shops. We recommend the apartment, and the arrangements through Harrogate Holidays.
We stayed at Crimple Head Mews for two nights and found the accommodation to be very modern and comfortable. The Children especially loved the tennis court!
Great base for visiting Harrogate and the surrounding area
just spent a great week at tenter turrets at knaresborough.
this was part of our ruby wedding celebrations and our children stayed some of the time with us.
the propety and location is stunning.
the only slight niggle would be that some of the lights did not work.
some glasses and cups were chipped.
i would still go again and booking staff were very helpfull and made it simple.
The let we stayed in was in an excellent location for the town centre and parks, and had spacious bedrooms. Unfortunately the downstairs area was quite small, the flooring downstairs was worn and not clean and all the downstairs seating and flooring, especially the lounge rug, was full of of pet hair from previous residents. Far from ideal when holidaying with a crawling baby. The highchair was also dirty on arrival and difficult to use, and before we were able to use the outside courtyard we had to clear a large pile of wet cardboard rubbish not left by us. I would not choose to stay in this accommodation again, but it was a great central location. Also in addition to above- the upstairs smoke alarm was not working on arrival and we had to purchase a replacement battery for this- we had understood that rental properties should have hard wired smoke alarms but this was not the case in this property.
Reasons: matresses are very much worn out, they shouldn be renewed from time to time as they are apartment for hiring, and they are used for many people.
Owners should check the apartments conditions in depth more often.
Matresses should be higher quality, as according to what is said, the apartments are high quality, however matresses in them are no good enough whatsoever.
The facilities in the apartments should be checked more often, as there are things they don't have. For example, this time there was no can opener, there was no hoover, the night table lamps had no light.
Also, we would also reccommend fewer cushions everywhere, they are very inconvinient and there is no any space to keep them.
There are no any space to keep the suitcases while you are here.
The rest of the stuff is ok. Location is really good, happy with the rest of everything.
It was just so easy to deal with this company. The flat was modern and spotless. We had a great time. The only complaint I would have is from the kids who said that the roll-out bed was uncomfortable. So, if you're planning on using the second bedroom, keep that in mind. The main bedroom was just fine. I have never experienced a comfortable roll-out bed anyway.
I was struggling to find last-minute accommodation in the Harrogate area and was very pleased with the helpful and proactive support I received from HH. The booking and key acquisition was efficient and the accommodation of a good standard and well eqipped. A problem with the oven was quickly rectified by the owner's local contact. However, I was surprised that the sash windows which were at floor level in the lounge in this second floor loft apartment only opened at the bottom - a real health & safety hazard for any child or pet.
The service from Harrogate Holidays was first class giving all the detail we needed to make an informed decision about the property to choose. We stayed in the Old Cottage in Knaresborough and it was just the best. Close to the town centre, a few yards away but no traffic noise, extremely well appointed and lovely, comfortable property. The owners were welcoming and helpful. We will stay again and would recommend both the company and the property.
The house we rented in Harrogate was very comfortable, well equipped and reasonably priced. We could walk into the centre of Harrogate very easily. There were good shops nearby and the area was pleasant. I would recommend it to anyone planning to stay in Harrogate for a few days.
The apartment was decorated to a high standard, with attractive fittings in the kitchen and bathroom. A few things would have made me give 5 stars had they been included in the apartment. A microwave and a small freezer compartment in the fridge. These are every day items not luxuries, but were not included in the kitchen. A shower in the bathroom would be a very good addition as this is also a standard in most homes. I am 5ft 10 and found that my feet would not touch the floor when sitting on the toilet. Sorry to be so honest but if a shorter person had been staying I don't know how they would have liked that. There were a couple of things I noticed that should have been checked before my arrival but I did report these to the contact. Despite my comments I enjoyed my stay. The apartment is situated on a lovely quiet road very close to all shops, parks, public transport and restaurants. I would definitely stay again.
A great 400 year old barn conversion with fantastic views over the open countryside.
Warm friendly great hosts who offer a marvelous well equiped modern accomendation with pleenty of room to relax and enjoy a fantastic area of Yorkshire. One of our best holidays ever and worth 5 stars plus.
Linda our host was the most kind, generous and thoughtful lady. She made our stay just divine. With 6 kids in tow, she welcomed us with a fresh homemade sponge cake, lilies, toys for the kids. It was so well designed, extremely clean and top quality in everything. Linda had left little things in the house that came in handy without having to go to the shop and get it. Eg washing powder, coffee etc.
We would highly recommend this property to anyone and we will be back next year.
Dray Cottage in Knaresbrough is fantastic. It offered everything we could have possible wanted in a self catering environment. Tony and Lori are excellent hosts who could not have been more helpful. We would love to go back one day, and would not hesitate to recomend them to anyone. The facilities were perfect for my mother in law who was confined to a wheelchair. All in all a marvelous experience.
This is an excellent cottage. It is very well equipped and so comfortable. The owners and their two dogs are extremely friendly and helpful. It is well located for trains and buses and for visiting York and the surrounding area. Even my teenage daughter was impressed. Cant wait to visit again.
Having never been to Harrogate arriving at the apartment through a back alley past the bins into drab courtyard over looked by what felt like hostels wasn't best appealing. The view over the plumbers and people looking down on the courtyard was also off putting. Once inside the apartment was spotless with Wifi and Sky. Beds were comfortable.
Location was great but as we explored Harrogate I regretted not paying a bit more for one of the nice hotels which would have included a breakfast and a more holiday feel. Nobody checks we're ok, so it lacks the personnel touch.
This is an apartment for business men who are staying longer term not a quiet weekend with friends looking for a bit of comfort.
We had a lovely holiday at Walter's Granary, Killinghall. The cottage was much bigger than it appeared in the photos, especially the main living area which was very spacious. It suited us perfectly and was very well equipped with clean towels and all the necessary things you don't always remember to bring with you on holiday. We were very lucky with the weather which was mainly glorious. Great places to visit such as Fountains Abbey, York and Harrogate and further afield Castle Howard. Lovely walks if fine and plenty to do if wet. Would come again.
My family and I traveled to England from Australia in June and July this year for our holiday. We booked several self catering cottages and holiday lets and found the best place we stayed was by far the cottage we booked through Harrogate Holidays. The team at Harrogate Holidays helped me find accommodation that would suit all our family needs. They have a great choice of places to stay in the North Yorkshire area, the trouble was deciding which one to book. The girls at Harrogate Holidays emailed me several times with photos and descriptions of each cottage and confirmed everything via telephone. The money transfer was safe, easy and convenient and our accommodation was the best value for money. We stayed in an amazing refurbished cottage and it was only ten to twenty minutes drive from York and Harrogate. If you want quality, affordable accommodation I highly recommend Harrogate Holidays.
We had a wonderful Monday to Friday break. The flat was very close to the centre, with loads of good restaurants and Betty's five minutes around the corner.
I stayed for 2 weeks at Well Barn Cottage in Nidderdale - the accomodation was clean and comfortable with very welcoming hosts. The area is very beautiful and the cottage was down a quiet road surrounded by wonderful countryside and and easy quick drive to harrogate.
The property was comfortable with good facilities and nothing as too much trouble for the owners, I would definitely stay with them again.
The cottage was lovely and very comfortable however parking was not convenient. I booked this house because it is all ground floor and my Mother cannot walk very far. On arrival I was disappointed to discover how far we had to walk to the house and carry our luggage. This should have been made clear before booking. Also the owners lived above and could be heard moving around from early morning. Every noise from above was audible. One morning I was rudely awakened at 7am by a noisy window cleaner. Frightening and very early to be cleaning windows. Most people like to sleep in on their holiday and enjoy some peace and quiet.
The website was easy to use and descriptions good - the photo galleries for properties were generally good. The on-line booking process was straightforward and responses prompt.
The property we choose was ideal - clean and comfortable in a quiet location - ideal for us.
I would definitely recommend Harrogate Holidays to others.
Excellent customer service everything as described. We found the booking procedure very easy and efficient highly recommended.The cottages themselves were both excellent. We stayed in Dray although family stayed next door. the photos do not do it justice very high spec . We will return as brilliant location for everything you could want to do in the area.

Booking online was easy and quick. The actual cottage was brilliant, spacious and the owners had thought of everything. Even leaving us a welcome basket with eggs from their own chickens, milk and homemade cookies!
