Snowdrop Cottage is a delightful stone built Victorian farm workers’ cottage situated in the conservation village of Clifford close to Wetherby, Boston Spa and Bramham and only 5 minutes from the A1 and A64 with easy access to the historic city of York, the Moors, Dales and all Yorkshire’s finest sights.
Buses stop right outside the terrace to whisk you into the stylish town of Harrogate or the buzzing city of Leeds.
Pass through the flower filled front courtyard garden with white wrought iron seating and through the original front door into a delightful beamed sitting room, where reclaimed wooden floors glow throughout the ground floor; colours are warm and golden.
A small log burner sits in the stone hearth and through a low doorway is a separate dining area leading to a bright characterful kitchen with oak work tops, a Belfast sink, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.
A stable door leads outside to a small table and chairs, perfect for a glass of wine in the evening sun.
On climbing the old staircase you will find the Rose Room, which has a sweet single bed and rose patterned wall paper.
Next to this a modern bathroom with shower over the bath is shared with the gorgeous Master Bedroom, a rustic but stylish space with aquamarine walls and white painted floor boards, a vintage fireplace, crisp white cotton sheets and cushions from Kashmir adorn the iron kingsize bed.
The duvet and pillows are feather and down, so sink into bed at the end of a hard day’s sightseeing and awake to far reaching views as you sip your morning tea.
Within walking distance is lively Boston Spa, which has lately seen a boom in cafes, bars and restaurants.
Nearer to hand in Clifford itself are three pubs (drinks only).
The fish and Chip shop is excellent.
Enjoy an early supper at the Red Lion in Bramham, 4 minutes’ drive away.
Wetherby is 3 miles away, it’s a vibrant Market Town with an excellent market on Thursdays.
Look out for the cheese man and his selection of local produce.
Other local destinations are Harewood House ( 20 mins) and on the doorstep Bramham Park, home to the Horse Trials and the Leeds Festival.
So many reasons to stay in this romantic Yorkshire cottage near Wetherby
