Romancing the Stone

Romancing the Stone, Plum Guide home in North Yorkshire

Romancing the Stone, Plum Guide home in North Yorkshire

Click to book Romancing the Stone now: from £200 per night This charming home in the heart of Yorkshire is a real escape from reality. A traditional stone cottage in the village of Crayke, it’s got bags of character, plenty of style and next-level comfort. Take the living room, for example. Does anything sound cosier than sinking into the plush sofa and warming your feet on the glow from the wood-burner? The kitchen, complete with an AGA, is well equipped for creating an impressive feast, which is just as well as there are excellent dining spaces to choose from here. The dining room, with its original fireplace, has an atmospheric feel, but in the summer, a leisurely dinner in the wild-flower filled garden is a delight. There are outstanding walks and cycle trails nearby, an award-winning pub (The Durham Ox) is a 200m dander away, and for history and culture, York is a 14-mile drive. Sleeps up to 5 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

The Ironmonger of Kirkby, Plum Guide home in North Yorkshire

Click to book The Ironmonger of Kirkby now: from £100 per night This gorgeous end-of-terrace cottage in the beautiful village of Kirkby Overblow, near Harrogate, offers peaceful surroundings and countryside views for miles. Its old-world looks are charming yet deceiving – while it features an elegant traditional design, this home has been modernised where it matters the most. Cook up a storm in the sleek kitchen or enjoy a moment of self-indulgence in the rainfall walk-in shower. Walk out from the cosy living room onto the sunny patio, where you can share a home-cooked alfresco breakfast before heading out to explore. On your doorstep is the pretty village, a well-rated country pub and miles of walking routes, or hop in the car and head to Harrogate for a day of shopping and afternoon tea at Betty’s Tea Rooms. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

Spa Town, Plum Guide home in Yorkshire, UK

Click to book Spa Town now: from £65 per night Victorian Harrogate in North Yorkshire is a perfect little town, and this flat is the ideal place to explore from. Sophisticated yet homely, it has been carefully curated so that you have everything you need without compromising on style. The emerald green bed and sapphire blue sofa add an air of luxury, while the slick kitchen is well-equipped so you can cook up your favourite meals. Start the day with a lazy coffee in the sumptuous armchair, before heading to the famous Turkish Baths to soothe any remaining stress. If you're feeling energetic, tackle the surrounding Dales on a mountain bike, the end of an abseiling rope, or just your own two feet. Central Harrogate is a piece of cake to walk around from here (especially if you stop at one of the tea rooms on the way), and if you fancy going further afield there is also a train station just 10 mins walk away. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

It's very central, but you'll feel far from the bustle – the flat is quiet and pristine on the first floor of the building. Yet it still has features of a regal manor, with a chandelier and high ceilings in the open living-kitchen space. Relax on the lush purple sofa in front of the TV to rest legs weary from a day of sightseeing, before turning in for the night in the quaint and cosy bedroom. Take one last look at the goings-on at street level, before lights out. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Acting Sweet, Plum Guide home in Yorkshire

Click to book Acting Sweet now: from £200 per night York is one of those places where there are all sorts of hidden treasures nestled down side streets, this home off Micklegate being a perfect example. Set in a small courtyard near the city walls hidden behind wooden gates, it's five minutes’ walk from sightseeing territory yet quiet enough to ensure you’ll get a good night's sleep. Best suited for families, parents have a breezy large vaulted bedroom to make the most of, while the kids bunk up in the second bedroom. Choose to eat in the cheerful kitchen-diner, out on the private courtyard on sunny days or at any of the local restaurants – there are so many to choose from. And York's rich, historic culture is a short stroll away. What more does any family need? Sleeps up to 5 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
