Gorgeous chocolate-box cottage sitting within the heart of the picturesque Wensleydale, offering a quintessentially British countryside escape to Yorkshire for up to three guests.
Take a look at this gorgeous chocolate-box cottage set in the heart of stunning Wensleydale. Beautiful inside and out with an idyllic cottage garden, this exquisite property offers that quintessential English country escape. With lots of great attractions nearby as well as some of the best gastro pubs in Yorkshire, we think this luxury holiday home is pretty much perfect!
This cottage is a warm and welcoming holiday escape for anyone and everyone. From the moment you walk through the door you can tell this is a home which is dearly loved. Its understated elegance gives it a luxurious yet cosy appeal with lots of original period features lending bags of character. Little touches like fresh flowers and a generous welcome hamper make you feel immediately at home.
At the heart of the house is the charming lounge complete with a wood burner sitting under a large Yorkshire stone plinth. Light up the fire and take your pick of the cosy sofas by the window. Pop open a bottle of something good, snuggle down and have a good old catch up. If you feel like some entertainment there's a TV and a DVD player. Wi-Fi is also included, beyond this room you also have a laundry room fully equipped with a washing machine, hand basin, WC and additional shower.
Next door you'll find the kitchen leading to the dining room. The kitchen boasts a period quarry-tiled floor and comes well-equipped with all the utensils and equipment you'll need to rustle up something delicious. You'll find a ceramic hob and oven, dishwasher, fridge with ice box and a microwave. Pop along to the excellent butchers at Masham (4.5 miles) for some top-quality local produce including their famous sausages for a hearty Yorkshire breakfast.
Mosey over into the dining room. This gorgeous space features an original black range fireplace and Yorkshire flagstone floors underfoot. Settle down to eat at the rustic table, made for those long lazy holiday lunches.
Both bedrooms and the bathroom are upstairs. The master bedroom affords views to the front and rear with double aspect windows letting in lots of light. There's a super-king-size bed to relax on while you indulge in morning telly. The second bedroom is a very sweet single room with a full-size single bed.
Both bedrooms have access to a Jack and Jill bathroom. There's a walk-in shower and several Edwardian features and fittings giving it a sumptuous, traditional feel. Soft fluffy bathrobes are provided as well as complimentary toiletries.
Let's explore outside the cottage. To the rear there's a pretty courtyard, a wisteria-covered old stone barn and a mature cottage garden with uninterrupted views of the Wensleydale countryside. Patio furniture is provided for dining alfresco and the lawn is just calling out for a picnic blanket and bottle of fizz. A charcoal BBQ is also provided for those balmy summer evenings. Sheer bliss.
We think this place is just the most perfect picture-postcard Wensleydale holiday cottage, but why don't you come see for yourself?
