18th Century stone cottage located in a beautiful spot to provide an idyllic Yorkshire Retreat
This 18th-century stone cottage is the perfect romantic getaway for those couples wanting to discover the rugged natural beauty of Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Nestled amongst a terrace of pretty cottages in the peaceful hamlet of Healaugh, you will find it easy to relax in the rural tranquillity. Despite the quiet surroundings, you are only 1.5 miles from Reeth, which is often referred to as ‘the capital of Swaledale’. It is a delightful village with some stunning panoramic views and scenery. It also has a range of shops and restaurants to choose from and a regular market. There is plenty of heritage to find out about as Reeth once played a vital role in the lead-mining industry. This area of Yorkshire is popular with both walkers and cyclists, boasting a number of trails and routes to choose from. Other outdoor activities are available at centres in the area, such as fishing, canoeing, caving, climbing, abseiling.
This quintessential English cottage, with trailing plants around its door, is charming and cosy. Original features such as exposed stone walls, beams and window seats add character, whilst the light, neutral tones bring a clean, fresh feel to it. Traditional country-cottage furniture is in keeping with the heritage of the property and will instantly make you feel at home.
Stepping through the front door, you will find yourself in the good-sized, open-plan living space, which is separated by the stairs. The wood burner in the lounge creates a snug feeling on a cold evening and the carpet adds to the sense of comfort. Moving past the small dining table and chairs and up the one step into the kitchen, you will notice the brightness from the light cabinets and tiled floor. The kitchen is well-equipped and has everything you need for a comfortable stay, including a washing machine for any dirty walking/cycling gear.
Up the steep, narrow staircase, there is a lovely king-size room and a family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Outside, you can escape to the south-facing, cottage garden – the perfect spot for a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.
