Nestled on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this delightful stone cottage provides the ideal base for families and couples to relax in beautiful countryside and delight in the local area.
Seek out a Yorkshire holiday with a difference and treat the family to a stay in this quintessential cottage that’s located in a sleepy rural village. Encircled by glorious countryside, Long Preston is a fabulous vantage point for experiencing the Yorkshire Dales in all their splendour with several stops for pub lunches to refuel. Your accommodation is a home away from home for rest, characterised by roaring fires, comfortable relaxing spots and even a welcome pack brimming with goodies for your party of six.
The exterior is deceptively bijou as the property is extremely spacious inside yet also delightfully cosy with period features and lots of thoughtful extra touches. Wooden beams line the ceiling of the traditionally styled lounge that’s been accessorised with classic furniture and all the trimmings you would expect of a Yorkshire cottage. A wood burner crackles invitingly from the stone hearth, lulling you into a sense of complete relaxation as you curl up on the deep sofas to watch the flickering flames. Delve into the pages of a new book or switch on the TV to catch up on some family favourites using the Blu-ray/DVD, sharing bowls of buttery popcorn and sipping from steaming mugs of hot chocolate.
The foodies among you will be enthralled by the possibilities the farmhouse-style kitchen provides, so all those mouth-watering spoils you’ve discovered in the nearby produce shops will come in handy for mealtimes. Make good use of the gas hob, electric oven and microwave, creating slap-up breakfasts and hearty suppers for your entire party. Create the perfect backdrop for dining at the table and fetching a chilled bottle of prosecco from the fridge/freezer to toast an evening of excellent company. The next morning, the coffee machine waits like an old friend, soothing your soul with that well-deserved first caffeine fix of the day. Completing this space is the handy breakfast bar, and there’s also a washing machine to take care of any muddy clothes after your adventures.
Upstairs, the three bedrooms are packed with character and guarantee a restful night’s sleep with soft linen and simple decor. Choose from a twin zip-and-link (with storage, and beds that can be made into a super-king-size on request) and two king-size bedrooms, one of which boasts a private en-suite shower room for a decadent shower to start your day. The family bathroom is also on this level with its excellent bath for pampering sessions, a must after a day of exploration.
An enclosed terrace can be found to the rear of the property that’s well-suited to balmy summer afternoons. Kick back and breathe a sigh of satisfaction after sampling some top-notch local produce, perhaps even enjoying a nightcap to end your evening in good spirits. A door leading off from the lounge reveals an additional courtyard garden that’s almost a secret den for hiding out with a morning coffee. Parking for one car is available to the front of the cottage and, should you need more options, there is further on-street parking subject to availability.
