A real home-away-from-home, this 18th century stone-built cottage offers a lovely holiday base, sitting on the edge of the picturesque village of Hackforth is the ideal retreat for families and friends.
Stay in this beautiful stone cottage studded within the idyllic village of Hackforth on the threshold of stunning Wensleydale. Sleeping six guests across three bedrooms, it is a wonderful choice for families and friendship groups seeking a rural setting for spending quality time together. The friendly owners have even provided a fantastic welcome pack of local produce and treats for your stay.
Beneath the traditional stone exterior and climbing ivy is a delightful retreat with wooden flooring underfoot and an overwhelming sense of cosy countryside living throughout. Timber beams, exposed stone and a roaring wood burner echo the overall homeliness in the lounge. Sink back on the sofas for family films relaxing together.
Double doors open to reveal the first of two dining spaces, and this one is a sheer treat for special mealtimes. An additional wood burner crackles invitingly from the inglenook fireplace to complete the cosy atmosphere.
Three steps lead to the next level where you will discover the simple, yet sophisticated kitchen that exudes rustic charm. Tiled flooring, wooden cabinetry and marble work surfaces have been seamlessly incorporated with all you could need for cooking including an electric Range oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. There is even a downstairs utility room with laundry facilities and ample storage for coats and boots. An archway reveals a functional dining area that’s flooded with natural light pouring in through the windows, providing a tranquil space for leisurely breakfasts.
Full-bellied and ready for slumber after a busy day, you’ll find three bedrooms by ascending the open staircase from the dining room. Children can stay in the bunk bedroom while one of the king-size bedrooms has its own en-suite shower room and spectacular views of the fields beyond the house, and the remaining bedroom offers a further king-size bed. There’s also an elegant bathroom with a shower over the bath.
Sunny afternoons call for BBQ meals and tall drinks in your private garden, or why not open the bi-fold doors and let the outside in for an al fresco vibe? There’s a pretty front garden that’s a real sun trap first thing in the morning, so you could venture outside with your coffee to start the day right.
