A perfect property for those looking to get away, with surrounding countryside proving a variety of walks and cycle routes to explore, or head further afield to Kirby Lonsdale or Kendal.
This delightful cottage near the Yorkshire town of Settle is bursting with charm and character, making it the ideal rural retreat for friends and families. Situated on the south-eastern edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, it is also close to the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, allowing guests to explore the abundance of beautiful scenery and wildlife in both of these areas. With plenty of walking and cycling trails on your doorstep and beyond, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to getting out and enjoying the fresh, country air. Whilst it's possible to immerse yourself in the tranquillity of the countryside, this property is only 1.5 miles from the bustling market town of Settle with its range of independent shops and eateries, and a wealth of heritage. After a busy day exploring, you'll be relieved to return home where you can soak in the private hot tub. It is one of two properties at this location.
Sympathetically restored, this wonderful property is packed with original features which have been beautifully incorporated into its clean, contemporary-cottage style. A neutral palette has been used throughout with occasional pops of colour, warm wooden tones and tasteful soft furnishings adding comfort and class.
As you enter the property, you'll find yourself in the kitchen/diner where the light walls and contemporary lighting make the space feel bright and airy. Tucked under the staircase, the kitchen is compact, but well-equipped to ensure you have everything you need to cook up some treats. There is a round dining table for four people. Up a couple of steps, you will find yourself in the lounge. Here, the original features take centre stage with quirky exposed stone walls, an inglenook fireplace housing the wood burner and a section of glass flooring that shows off the workings of the old well that is still used for flushing the toilets. This is the ideal place to sink into the sofas of an evening and enjoy each other's company in front of the roaring wood burner.
Upstairs, exposed beams and stone walls add a rustic charm to the immaculate super king-size bedrooms (both of which can be made up as twins on request), as do the unique windows in each room. Both rooms have a Smart TV and en-suite bathrooms that have been finished to a very high standard.
Outside, there are courtyards to the front and rear of the property. To the front, there is dining furniture for al fresco dining as well as the private hot tub. To the rear, there is an enclosed courtyard area. Secure bike racking is available as well as off-road parking for two cars and two electric charge points.
