A perfect retreat for a couple or a small family, this beautiful period cottage offers cosy accommodation in a lovely village which is ideally situated for exploring Yorkshire's wonderful moors and dales.
Escape to this Grade II-listed chocolate-box cottage tucked away in a pretty North Yorkshire village. Just a few miles from historic Richmond, fall in love with its contemporary interiors, cosy open-plan living area and generous en-suite bedrooms with super king-size beds. And for those aspiring artists out there, the owner runs regular painting classes in her studio just a hop, skip and a jump away. With parts of the building dating back to the 18th century, the classic double-fronted stone cottage has serious kerb appeal. Inside, 21st century comforts have been added for that inherent period charm.
Step inside the elegant entrance hall and into the heart of the cottage, an open-plan living area home to the lounge, kitchen and dining table. Elegant grey tones provide a peaceful soothing backdrop with splashes of colour coming from the owner's artwork on the walls. Snuggle up by the wood burner with a glass of something good while you catch up with friends and loved ones. For your evening entertainment, there's a Smart TV & DVD player if you want to bring some of your own favourites. Wi-Fi is also provided.
At the opposite end of the room is the contemporary kitchen with its stone-grey units, sleek marble worktop and striking feature wall. You'll find all the usual mod cons including a dishwasher, ceramic hob, oven and full-size fridge/freezer. There's also a washer/dryer, perfect when you're just back from a bracing walk in the Dales with muddy clothes. Pick up some yummy local Yorkshire produce from nearby Richmond and settle down to eat at the welcoming farmhouse kitchen table – a lovely spot for a hearty Yorkshire breakfast or a romantic evening meal.
There are two surprisingly generous bedrooms in the property, both of which boast en-suite bathrooms, original fireplaces and huge super king-size beds. If you prefer a twin room, the beds can also be configured as singles on request. Similar in style and comfort, bedroom one to the left of the entrance hall has an en-suite bathroom, particularly useful if you have little ones to scrub or if you just enjoy a long hot soak. Bedroom two is accessed via the kitchen and offers a gorgeous en-suite shower room. Both en-suites include a WC and wash basin.
Outside you'll find an enclosed and very pretty walled garden with a sheltered stone patio and lawned area. Patio furniture is provided so you can enjoy lunch alfresco in the warmer months, with only the sound of birdsong to disturb you.
