Homely cottage nestled on the banks of the River Skirfare in the gorgeous dale of Littondale, offering spacious accommodation to be enjoyed by families looking to bask in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
Welcome to this beautiful stone-built property nestling on the banks of the River Skirfare in gorgeous Littondale. Dating back to the 1700s, this fabulous two-bedroom property offers spacious and elegant accommodation and is surrounded by some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Yorkshire Dales. Set in the heart of the National Park, it's heaven for walkers and cyclists with stunning routes in every direction. There's an excellent foodie pub and for those who just want to sit back and enjoy the view, almost every room in the house offers a spectacular vista.
This is one of those unique holiday cottages that offer something incredibly special; that elusive combination of a chocolate-box exterior, charming rooms and a picture-perfect location - and all of it presented immaculately. Driving down the Dale you'll find this handsome cottage set right by the river, a really magical setting that sets the tone for your stay.
Inside the property has been designed to maximise the glorious views of the Dales with the large and welcoming sitting room set on the first floor. This fine-looking room boasts a roaring open fire within an impressive stone fireplace and chimney, exposed stone walls and king trusses dating back to the 18th century. Gathered around the fire is comfy seating, perfect for curling up on each evening. There's a TV and DVD player in here if you want to bring along some family favourites, and Wi-Fi is also provided. The mullioned window and window seat in here afford the most fabulous views of the surrounding fells and river.
The farmhouse kitchen and dining hall are on the ground floor. In the sturdy and traditional kitchen, you'll find all the usual mod cons including a dishwasher, oven and hob. There's also a wine-cooler to keep your bottles at the perfect drinking temperature. A separate utility houses a large fridge/freezer, microwave and door to the garden patio. A handsome farmhouse table sits in the centre of the dining space, a lovely spot for dining whatever the time of day.
There are two delightful bedrooms in this pretty holiday cottage, the first of which is a sumptuous master suite set on the ground floor. Split over two levels this large and elegant room offers a separate sitting area with gorgeous views from the large picture windows. A king-size bed sits at the heart of the main bedroom space and exposed walls and trusses give the room lots of character. The family shower room is on ground level and offers underfloor heating with a double shower.
The second bedroom is a very sweet twin room on the first floor, again boasting those original exposed beams overhead. A further single bed is set on the mezzanine level in this room so it will sleep up to three people. This room also has the advantage of access to its own shower room and WC on this floor.
Outside, the setting is hard to beat and the lovely lawned gardens and terraced areas take full advantage of the surrounding views. Settle down with a glass of fizz by the river and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. And for those warm summer evenings, patio furniture and a charming old stone BBQ is provided right by the river, so you can enjoy them long into the night.
