Charming chocolate-box country cottage situated deep within the heart of Wensleydale, surrounded by nothing but picturesque views offering a heavenly rural escape to the Yorkshire Dales.
Discover this magical and romantic property, a chocolate box country cottage set deep in the heart of Wensleydale. With cosy welcoming interiors and views to die for, this property offers a heavenly rural escape into the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales.
Tucked away on a hillside of this lush green dale, it is one of those idyllic little houses that just define the word ‘cottage'. Arrive to a handsome stone exterior clad clematis and roses, leading you into a warm and inviting home. Inside you'll find a generous living room with an original stone fireplace and wood burner at its heart. Light up the fire and take your pick from two comfy sofas or a rocking chair to curl up on. Yorkshire stone flagstones underfoot and exposed beams overhead give the room bags of character. Make sure to watch your head on the low beam coming in.
In addition to its period charm, there are lots of contemporary comforts too. You'll find a Smart TV and a DVD player, radio, Bluetooth speaker and Wi-Fi. So, lots to keep you entertained each evening after a day's walking in the Dales.
Make your way through to the atmospheric kitchen/diner where further exposed stone walls and floors continue the period feel. The bespoke kitchen features a range cooker and induction hob set under a stone lintel. All the usual mod cons are provided including a dishwasher. A further utility room/boot room has a washing machine and fridge/freezer.
At the heart of the kitchen is a circular dining table, the perfect spot to settle down to a hearty Yorkshire meal. Or to spread out the Sunday papers on while you relax with your morning coffee. No need to rush today.
This holiday home enjoys the luxury of a separate formal dining room with an original stone fireplace and stone flagged floors. Accessed through the sitting room, you'll find a rustic dining table to gather around as well as a bookcase in here, home to lots of books and a cd player.
Downstairs is also home to a wet room-style shower room. Perfect if you're just back muddy and windswept after a walk in the hills. Dash in here to warm yourself up ready to settle down for the evening.
Both bedrooms in the property are set upstairs. The first is the gorgeous master bedroom which enjoys views out to the front over countryside. This light and peaceful room has an understated elegant appeal with its off-white walls, an original cast iron fireplace and exposed floor boards that add to the character of the room. The star of the show is the patio doors leading out onto your own private roof terrace. Complete with a patio table and chairs, the views from here are just breathtaking, a wonderful place to take in dusk falling over the dales.
The second bedroom is also facing to the front and continues the country cottage theme with its white and subtle blue accents. There's another double bed in here, and those amazing views are waiting for you through the window. Rest a while on the window seat and drink them in.
Upstairs is also home to the house bathroom featuring a pretty roll top bath with shower overhead. Indulge yourself with a long hot bath each evening.
There is much to enjoy outside too including a beautiful cottage garden with lots of mature roses and different seating areas. There's also a fledgling wild flower meadow to discover. Settle down to lunch alfresco and marvel at the local birdlife all around.
