Studded within the Nidderdale Hills, this wonderful 230-year-old cottage is brimming with old world charm, offering breathtaking views of the North Yorkshire countryside.
At over 230 years old, this delightful cosy character cottage nestles perfectly in the hills of Nidderdale. Set in an elevated position above the popular village of Pateley Bridge, its original features and contemporary comforts combine to create an elegant and unique country cottage.
Set over 3 floors, this romantic Yorkshire cottage has a magical appeal with its upside-down layout, thick stone walls and quirky little touches. Step inside the porch and into a rustic contemporary kitchen complete with wood-panelled walls and heated original flagstone floors. Vintage units and chunky wooden worktops combine to create a warm ambience, and an old sewing machine provides a home to mood lighting in the corner. In the kitchen, you'll find a washing machine and separate tumble dryer as well as heaps of storage under the stairs. There's a range cooker and large fridge-freezer too, with cupboards stocked with everything you need.
The lounge is on the first floor, a cosy and relaxing room with lovely views out to the front of the cottage. There's plenty of comfortable seating in here and the room has a pleasing Celtic-gatehouse style with tartan curtains and arched windows. There's an LCD TV, DVD player & Wi-Fi for those chilled evenings in as well as lots of books to keep you entertained offline. A warm flame-effect gas fire keeps everything nice and toasty.
Make your way up to the second floor to find the master bedroom. Set in the eaves of the house, this charming room has bags of character. There's a king-size bed to look forward to each evening and a curtained balcony giving the room a romantic feel. Head back down to the lounge and up another few steps to find the second bedroom. This room has a double-sized bunk bed so can comfortably sleep 2 adults and 2 children. There are handy little reading lights on the bottom and top bunk if you enjoy a good read in bed. The house bathroom sits next door to this room, a spacious and elegant room complete with a bath for those candlelit soaks and a shower handle for convenience.
The property looks out onto a babbling brook at the front and has private gardens to the rear of the cottage. Make your way up the garden steps to find a flat lawned area at the top, complete with a garden swing on a tree. With its elevated position, the views from this garden are simply stunning. You'll find a BBQ for guests use up here as well as picnic blankets to use in the cottage. We can't think of a nicer spot for a long lazy lunch over a bottle of wine or two. As the cottage sits within a shooting estate the garden is often home to pheasant and partridge as well as other local wildlife. Wild deer are common here – if you are lucky, you might spot one during your stay.
Please note the steps in the garden are quite steep in parts and care should be taken walking up.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
