There is one en suite bedroom in the property as well as a spacious open-plan living space with modern well-equipped kitchen, dining table and sitting area.

Set in open countryside on the edge of the village of Markington is this comfortable and inviting cottage – a delightful self-contained wing of the owner’s detached home. This property is six miles from the lovely city of Ripon and has been lovingly restored to offer spacious, ground-floor accommodation, exposed beams and velux windows, as well as a bright and airy atmosphere. The region is host to a number of great activities, including Harrogate’s magnificent Turkish Baths, old theatres and Bettys Tea Room, which overlooks the impressive Montpelier Gardens.


A comfortable and restful base for enjoying the glorious Dales.
We received a warm welcome from our hosts and much appreciated their thoughtful gifts so that we were equipped for breakfast on Sunday. Mr and Mrs Griffin were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The cottage was clean, very comfortable, well equipped and well situated for us explorying the area, which was fairly new to us. We were blessed with wonderful weather and the cottage remained comfortably cool for us. I particlularly enjoyed the private patio to enjoy the early morning and late afternoon sunshine.

Ideal location
This cottage was easy to find off the main road, is very comfortable with everything we require. Everything on one level so ideal for anyone with mobility problems. Friendly owners who left wine, butter, bread & milk in the cottage for us & recommended a lovely pub for my birthday meal. The cottage is well placed to visit places like Ripon, Harrogate, York & Skipton. Also on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales & very close to Fountains Abbey and other NT properties. Would certainly like to return. Thank you!

This is an excellent property in a good location. This was a home from home.
Mrs Hoiles

The owners are particularly nice people, and offered help with anything to do with the area, including walks or places to visit. The cottage is really one of the best we have been to, with a kitchen area equipped as well as you could want. Including a fridge freezer, high quality microwave with grill, dishwasher and washing machine. I would recommend this cottage.
Mr Purdom

We found the property very warm and cosy. It was very handy for Harrogate and the surrounding areas, it was a little gem!
