This charming cottage enjoys a superb location in the heart of the picturesque village of Kettlewell, offering a host of fantastic walks and places to see for couples and families.

Ideally situated in the popular village of Kettlewell and at the foot of Great Whernside, this exceptional two-bedroom cottage provides the perfect base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Sleeping up to four people, this delightful cottage is the perfect choice for a family, or couples looking to relax and enjoy outdoor adventures in the local area.

This marvellous cottage is set amidst dramatic landscapes with some of the best walking and cycling trails in the country. You could take a stroll along the River Wharfe, which is directly opposite the cottage, and explore the many quintessential Dales villages that lie along its banks.

As you enter this attractive cottage, you'll find an impressive, bright interior where light decor meets bold furnishings to add a touch of luxury and give a cosy feel of home. In the inviting lounge, after a busy day discovering the best of North Yorkshire, you can cosy up on the comfortable sofa or recliner and watch your favourite film or series on the Smart TV. And imagine yourself lighting a crackling log fire on a chilly evening whilst snuggled up with a warm drink or glass of wine.

The chic, contemporary open-plan kitchen and dining area has everything you need to cook memorable meals for you and your guests. Sit down at the dining table with your loved ones to enjoy a feast. Afterwards, take your favourite tipple and admire the splendid views of the wooded dale from the rear of the house.

Upstairs, there are two immaculately presented bright and cheery bedrooms, a king-size to the front and a double at the rear, plus a separate fashionable shower room.

Outside this lovely property, there is a large lawned garden with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. A small patio area with a table and chairs makes this the perfect place to dine alfresco on warm summer evenings. Another small patio at the front of the cottage is a place where you can catch the last of the evening sun.

Gorgeous Kettlewell is some 13 miles from Aysgarth in Wensleydale. Head here to see the spectacular Aysgarth Falls, which were featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves! The village also boasts many great options to eat within less than a mile of the property, including popular pubs and cute cafes. If you visit in spring, you can’t leave without a visit to Freeholders’ Wood where bluebells, anemones and primroses will be in full bloom.

As hard as it will be to tear yourself away from the picturesque village, there’s plenty more to see and do in the local area. Within a 10-mile radius of the property are the charming settlements of Hawes, 15 miles from Kettlewell; West Burton, 13 miles away; and Askrigg, 17 miles away. Hawes is a popular market town less than 10 miles from Aysgarth and is most famous for being the home of Wensleydale cheese! It also boasts lovely shops, pubs and tearooms. Walkers will also love the town as the Pennine Way passes through it, making it the perfect starting point for exploring the countryside. The small villages of West Burton and Askrigg offer delightful tearooms and pubs.

The stunning landscape of Wensleydale itself includes 25 miles of lush valleys, criss-crossed with the area’s iconic dry-stone walls. If you enjoy walking and countryside views, you will not be short of things to do, with Wensleydale providing delightful moorland, dale-side and valley walks. Wensleydale is also sandwiched between Wharfedale and Swaledale if you fancy exploring further afield.

History lovers will be fascinated by visits to Bolton Castle, Middleham Castle and Jervaulx Abbey, which are 17, 15 and 18 miles from the property, respectively. Bolton Castle dates back to the 14th century and once held Mary, Queen of Scots prisoner, while Middleham Castle was the childhood home of Richard III. Jervaulx Abbey is the country’s largest privately-owned Cistercian Abbey and offers peace and tranquillity to its visitors.

The cottage is close to the centre of Kettlewell and some lovely walks straight from the door. The kitchen has every piece of cooking equipment that you could want and the sitting room is cosy. Upstairs the bed is very comfortable and the bathroom has a lovely shower. Although the local garage is opposite we were not bothered by noise.
