Escape to this recently converted retreat, nestled in the Nidderdale Valley amongst a plethora of beautiful walks and historic villages, offering a memorable getaway in a wonderful setting.
Hidden away in what was once the town mill, this cosy, charming abode is part of a historic property that boasts marvellous riverside views and easy access to the stunning Yorkshire Dales. It is the perfect vantage point for couples or a small family seeking a unique stay in simply marvellous surroundings. Stroll through the village and sample delicious local fare in the friendly pub and then work off your meal with a bracing walk along the banks of the River Nidd. The Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is awash with potential for discovery, and you’ll be perfectly placed to explore at leisure.
Marrying different periods through style, texture and colour, the interior of the property is characterised by traditional beamed ceilings, contemporary decor and all the home comforts you could wish for. At one end of the compact open-plan living space is the kitchen area, a resplendent nook for preparing all your favourite meals crafted using only the finest local produce from nearby market towns and sleepy villages. There are built-in appliances including an electric oven, hob, fridge/freezer, slimline dishwasher, microwave and ample worktop space for your culinary creations, and there’s a bijou-style table for suppers a deux. Recline on the sofas, sinking into the voluminous cushions to watch TV or simply sit back, appreciate the ambience, and rest your weary limbs after your adventures whilst taking your first sip of hot chocolate.
Steep carpeted stairs ascend to the first floor to reveal the first of two bedrooms, a marvellous retreat that features simple yet sophisticated decor, storage and a deliciously comfortable bed dressed in crisp linen, scatter cushions and a cosy throw. A pamper session is well deserved, so arm yourself with a few luxuries and venture next door to the elegant shower room for a wonderful hot shower.
Another door conceals yet more stairs that lead to the final bedroom, the piece de resistance of this impressive property. An asymmetrical sloped ceiling, several timber beams and small yet effective windows give this room an art deco-inspired vibe, and the delightful bed again features crisp linen, soft throws and scatter cushions. This room also has the bonus feature of its own en-suite shower and WC for a splash of indulgence. The TV is also a welcome feature for when you wish to escape back to your room and catch up on your favourite shows in peace.
There may not be an outside space attached to this property, but pausing as you cross the cobbled courtyard beneath the original clocktower will reward you with the tranquil sounds of running water cascading past teamed with birdsong from the surrounding trees. You’ll have oodles of trails to choose from for adventures leading from the village off into the countryside, not to mention several tempting pubs for hearty lunches and refreshing tall glasses of local ale. Allocated parking is available for one car too; a must for when you feel like nipping out for an evening meal without worrying you’ll lose your space.
