Cottage in superb condition ,it was ideally located to suit us for the type of walking we had planned .The walking guides we found in the cottage were a great help particularly the guide book of "Walks around Harrogate East and west" A well written book and one you could use without having a map ,as the instructions were so good
Hard to fault

Markington Grange Cottage is ideally situated between Harrogate & Ripon as a base for exploring this beautiful part of the country.
The cottage itself was very cosy and well equipped with everything needed for a pleasant stay.

Perfect little cottage. Warm, comfortable, clean and very well equipped.
The owners were helpful and pleasant but unobtrusive. The countryside around
looks very pretty but it was quite wintery when I was there so I didn't do much
exploring. Harrogate and Ripon are 10 minutes away. Can also recommend The
George hotel nearby for great food.
very pleasant at markington
