Ideally located with a vast amount of surrounding countryside, perfect for nature lovers and those wanting to explore on foot or two wheels, or head further up to Malhamdale
This charming cottage near the Yorkshire town of Settle is bursting with comfort and character, making it the perfect rural retreat for friends/families. Not only is it 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, which allows guests to discover the abundance of beautiful scenery and wildlife in both of these stunning areas. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to getting out and enjoying the fresh, country air, as there are plenty of walking and cycling routes/trails on your doorstep and beyond. This wonderful home allows you to immerse yourself in the tranquillity of the countryside, but is conveniently located only 1.5 miles from the lively 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 for a relaxing soak in the private hot tub. It is one of two properties at this location.
Sympathetically restored, this property's wealth of original features have been beautifully incorporated into its clean, contemporary-cottage style. A neutral palette has been used throughout with muted colours, warm wooden tones and high quality fixtures and fittings adding a touch of class.
On entering the property, you'll find yourself in the kitchen/diner where the light walls and contemporary lighting create a bright and inviting space. Making clever use of the space, the kitchen is built under the staircase. Whilst it is compact, it is modern and well-equipped to ensure you have everything you need to cook up some treats to be enjoyed at the large dining table, where there's plenty of seating for everyone. Around the corner, you will find yourself in the lounge. Here, the original fireplace and wood burner is the focal point, with a range of comfortable seating to sink into at the end of the day.
Also on the ground floor is the master double bedroom with its large en-suite wet room, which doubles up as a utility room with the washing machine cunningly tucked into the wall.
On the first floor, exposed beams and quirky windows add rustic charm to the further two double bedrooms. 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 another enclosed courtyard, which is perfect for dogs and children. There is secure bike racking available as well as off road parking for two cars and two electric charge points.
