This is a memorable romantic retreat with bubbling hot tub, nestled in this Wensleydale village in the Yorkshire Dales offering enviable views as far as the eye can see.
Set on a working farm near a peaceful village in North Yorkshire, this bijou bolthole offers a stylish stay for two on the eastern fringe of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s perfectly placed for couples and canine companions who love to walk and wallow in the heart of the countryside, breathing in the pure fresh country air. Try a different walk every day, from the gentle farm landscape, by babbling brooks and rugged fields to the rolling hills and undulating landscape of the dales – you’ll never run out of trails here. If you want a slice of local history, visit the 12th-century Jervaulx Abbey and tearooms in the Jervaulx village (0.5 miles), discover medieval cottages in the nearby village of Thornton Steward (2.5 miles), or indulge yourself with a scoop of fresh dairy ice-cream from the legendary local ice-cream parlour (0.5 miles). There’s an abundance of adventures, pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of the cottage, while you’ll also find shops and pubs within 5 miles, and convenient off-road parking available for two cars
Step into this romantic hideaway, sheltered by sturdy stone walls and surrounded by the verdant landscape of God’s Own Country. Kick off your hiking boots, hang coats up in the hall, and walk through to the welcoming open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area where you’ll soon feel toasty by the cosy wood burner. Enjoy the bright and airy spacious design, harmonising with beamed ceilings and the warm tones of traditional country style. Create delicious meals with locally sourced ingredients in the well-equipped kitchen, boasting an electric oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, and a slow cooker. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable here, including a washing machine to lighten your holiday packing, the cosiest seating, and your own private hot tub. Snuggle up on the sofa and watch All Creatures Great and Small on the Smart TV to inspire your travels around Yorkshire. When sleep calls, settle into your stylish bedroom with its own Smart TV and a king-size bed (which can be adapted to a twin bedroom). There’s also a gorgeous shower room.
Slide back the patio doors, and step outside to enjoy morning coffees on the decked terrace which leads down two steps to a lawned area – a nice spot for catch sunny rays. On warm afternoons or evenings, fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco on the separate seated patio area by the hot tub, where you can enjoy a long soak after a hilly hike and soak up the infinite views of lush green pastures while dreaming of your next day of adventures.
