My wife and I, plus our two children (12 yrs & 13 yrs) had a wonderfully tranquil overnight stay at the very tastefully appointed B&B of the Hollins family in the Yorkshire Dales.
It’s location so close to Harrogate was a surprise, just five minutes from the city centre you enter another world with unspoilt vistas of gently rolling hills.
The long driveway, gated access and easy parking was very nice. As was our welcome as we walked through the partially enclosed stone walled garden, to the Hazel Manor entrance.
We stayed in the larger of the two rooms (with said vistas) which was very spacious indeed and with just the right amount of artful luxuriousness! The bed was dreamily comfortable. The only slightly unusual thing absent, something we had become too acclimatized to in most overnight stays away from home, was the complete and utter lack of noise! Of any kind! No whining ventilating equipment. No banging doors. No distant whir of traffic. None! - Lovely.
Hazel Manor offers the perfect stillness of a country idyl. One complemented as I said with bedroom window seat views to the Wolds in the morning.
The children shared a bed in the smaller but equally well furnished second bedroom and we now have additions to their long wish list of items of two “..mattresses just like theirs”.
The hosts were extremely welcoming and very friendly. And the food at breakfast was really special.
In the morning we popped into the quaint village of Ripley (2 mins drive) and visited an Antique’s Auction in the very traditional Village Hall and then had a stroll around a wonderful little Art Gallery where the very nice owner and I chatted about Art from Yorkshire. Then onto Harrogate for a trip around the galleries and shops there.
Hazel Manor is a little piece of luxury escapism – A great base to explore the countryside or town. We couldn’t fault it. We’ll be back.
