This property is an impressive two-bedroom holiday cottage set at the foot of Great Whernside, Kettlewell. Perfectly placed on a quiet and peaceful street at the heart of this pastoral village, this delightful luxury cottage sleeps up to four people and is the ideal choice for couples, friends or families looking to enjoy the outdoors.

With an excellent location, this pretty stone cottage is less than 200 metres from the amenities of the picturesque village of Kettlewell, including the two pubs, the village store and a tearoom. You could take a stroll along the river or follow the Dales Way to discover a number of charming villages, each with its own unique charm, while walking through a wealth of breathtaking countryside.

Step inside and find a beautifully appointed property which has been designed and furnished in a 'reverse-level' layout to afford you the luxury of having the most magnificent countryside views. There is a bright, cottage-style feel throughout creating a homely vibe that you can easily relax into.

Climb the staircase to the first floor and a beautiful open-plan lounge and dining area welcomes you with an eye-catching feature stone fireplace, lovely rug and cosy multi-fuel burner (first basket of logs provided). Picture yourself curled up on the plush sofas or with your feet up on the foot stool relaxing after a busy day out; watch a favourite film or series on the Smart TV or imagine yourself and friends or family sitting together around the wooden dining table enjoying a glass of wine or playing a game of cards. During the day, the dining and lounge areas are bathed in natural light from the large windows.

The wonderful contemporary kitchen has been cleverly designed with plenty of space and a breakfast bar with seating that keeps this a social space where you can chat over the day’s events. All the appliances you need to prepare unforgettable meals are on hand.

The property has two good-sized bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower over the bath located on the ground floor. Both bedrooms are decorated with light colours and are perfect to retire to at the end of the day - one is a king-size room with built in wardrobes and the second is a twin room.

Choose from a myriad of fantastic walking routes to embark on straight from the front door of this delightful holiday cottage; go cycling, horse riding or pony trekking. 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 should not 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 20-mile radius of the property are the charming settlements of Hawes, 16 miles from Kettlewell; West Burton, 13 miles away; and Askrigg, 17.5 miles away. Hawes is a popular market town less than 10 miles from Aysgarth and is most famous for being the home of delicious 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 magnificent 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 in Ripon, which are 17, 15 and 18 miles from the property, respectively. Bolton Castle dates 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.
