About Fountains CottageThree spacious floors to explore, an ivy-clad exterior and Fountains Abbey just moments away.
Fountains Cottage was built in 1749 and originally served as a farmhouse. Spread over three floors, this spacious stone-built holiday cottage is full of character with its ivy-clad exterior and its exposed beams inside.
Wake up to the gurgling River Skell, situated just opposite the holiday home, before exploring Fountains Abbey. Just moments from the cottage, you can enjoy free entry to the abbey and explore the grounds at any time during your stay. The abbey ruins had a starring role in The Secret Garden, so you’ll be walking in the footsteps of film stars.
A little further afield, head to the spa town of Harrogate. Discover its fancy boutiques, high-end restaurants and historic tea rooms. Or delve into the wilds of the Yorkshire Dales, which are just a 35 minute drive.
