About The Green Door

The Green Door is our second venture into holiday lets, when we first viewed the cottage we could see its potential straight away, it had 2 bedrooms and a tiny bathroom upstairs, after much discussion we decided to lose a bedroom and make a beautiful master bedroom and luxurious bathroom for couples to enjoy.

We set to removing walls upstairs and re configuring the bathroom into the second bedroom, pipes had to be moved, a new heating system installed and underfloor heating. But the results are magnificent even if i say so myself. We now have a claw foot bath, a double shower and room to swing 2 cats.

This then left us with a very big front to back bedroom with gorgeous sloping ceilings and original beams, we decided to zone the area so we had one end of the room for sleeping and the other end for relaxing and getting ready, with a dressing table, open wardrobe and comfy chair. We chose lovely relaxing colours for the bedroom to provide a relaxing, cosy atmosphere.

Downstairs the cottage was overrun with orange wood stained doors, skirting boards, staircase etc, so we painted all of this out and decorated the room in a contemporary cottage style, adding in an electric stove with a solid oak mantle. We chose a Mulberry flying ducks wallpaper in soft greys and covered the sofa and chair in complimentary fabrics.

The kitchen was a lot simpler, we changed the tiles, added a Smeg fridge freezer and a washer dryer, then re painted the whole room and added a beautiful roman blind to the window.

It took us 5 weeks from start to finish and we enjoyed every minute of it, and wouldn't be afraid to take on something bigger in the future.

We also have a holiday apartment in Harrogate called Green View so if you enjoy your visit to The Green Door be sure to book your next break away in Harrogate, where you will find the same 5 star experience with new places to visit, we wish you a very happy and relaxing stay.
