Luxurious tucked-away cottage sitting on the cusp of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park within the sleepy little village of Thorton Watlass offering a slow-paced retreat to the countryside.
Welcome to this gorgeous one-bedroom luxury cottage tucked away on the cusp of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This magical property ticks every box with its stunning interiors, spacious accommodation and lovely gardens including your very own orchard to explore. And as the name of the cottage suggests, you can enjoy village cricket on your doorstep in the warmer months, so grab a picnic blanket and let's go!
This property is an exquisite and quirky holiday home with a handsome wood exterior and Scandi-inspired interior. Make your way in via the charming rustic wood veranda and discover surprisingly generous light-filled rooms inside, with solid oak block flooring underfoot and quality fixtures and fittings throughout.
At the heart of the cabin is a double height open space home to the lounge area, kitchen and breakfast bar. A stylish contemporary wood-burning stove nestles in the corner and sunlight floods in from the large sliding doors leading to the patio. Take a seat by the window and enjoy views out to the garden or cosy up in the true spirit of Hygge on the sumptuous snuggle chair and settle down to a movie. A Smart TV with Netflix provides the evening entertainment and there's a Sonos Bluetooth speaker so you can choose your own soundtrack. Wi-Fi is also provided too.
The kitchen boasts striking aubergine units and comes well equipped with a NEFF domino induction hob, NEFF fan oven, fridge and dishwasher. Rustle up something delicious while your other half keeps you company on the bar stools topped with Icelandic sheepskin seat pads - just the place to pop open a bottle of bubbly before dinner. And if you don't feel like cooking one night, you'll find a range of quality frozen meals to buy in the garage freezer.
At the opposite end of the cabin is the master bedroom, another bright and welcoming room with generous proportions and charming details. A king-size bed allows you to stretch out and enjoy your own space. Reindeer and sheepskin rugs add to the stylish comfortable feel.
The house bathroom is just next door. Decorated in a simple elegant style there's a bath to sink into each evening and a shower overhead. Heating under the floor tiles keep your toes nice and warm.
There is much to enjoy outside this gorgeous property too. Starting with the rustic wood veranda by the front door. It's made for those morning coffees or afternoon G & Ts where the cares of the world seem far away. Make your way around to the lovely stone patio just by the lounge doors. Take a seat on the elegant cast iron bistro set and enjoy views down the garden towards the orchard and paddock. This sheltered little spot is perfect for lunch alfresco in the warmer months and when it starts to get a little chillier light up the fire-bowl.
When the mood takes you, go for a wander around down to the Paddock where the resident (friendly) Zwartble sheep will greet you or enjoy a little snooze on the hammock in the garden.
