This renovated farm cottage, situated next to a Grade II-listed 18th century corn mill, offers a charming holiday for families that want to relax in the North Yorkshire countryside in splendid grounds.
Discover this charming two-bedroom stone cottage nestling happily next to a Grade II Listed 18th century corn mill in Wensleydale. Set on the edge of a little hamlet, this very sweet cottage has extensive gardens including a mill pond and is surrounded by stunning countryside in every direction. There's also a decent foodie pub within walking distance.
The Mistal was an old cow shed in its former life which today has been converted into a very comfortable and surprisingly spacious holiday cottage. We love the extra wide wooden doors throughout the cottage, a reminder of the age of the building, and the handsome wooden Yorkshire slider windows.
Step inside to discover a generous family-sized kitchen which has been fitted brand new for Spring 2019 and includes a washing machine and dishwasher. There's plenty of room for four people around the kitchen table and it's a warm comfortable spot for dining. Moving next door into the sitting room, you will find another spacious area with a comfortable sofa and several other chairs. We like the eclectic style in here, with its gorgeous vintage Danish sideboard and contemporary lighting. There's a gas flame fire for those cosy evenings in and a TV/DVD player to settle down in front of. And of course, Wi-Fi is provided too. This property has top green credentials too as its heated by an eco-efficient Biomass boiler.
Make your way down a small set of stairs to find the bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom has a double bed and sumptuous linen curtains. At the other end of the hall, there is a delightful twin room with white cast iron beds, perfect for little ones. The family bathroom sits between the two and has a bath with a shower overhead. Perfect for a soak in the tub after a day walking, or bathing the children after they've spent an afternoon exploring the gorgeous gardens.
Immediately to the front of the cottage is a very pleasant stone courtyard which is fully enclosed. But the star of the show has to be the extended and well-maintained grounds which are fully available for you to explore and use. They include a peaceful mill pond and a large cut lawned area, the perfect spot to throw out the picnic blanket and settle down for lunch. There are ducks and chickens wandering around and you may be lucky and spot the resident woodpecker family too. Younger children will love the football goal, swings and other outdoor toys.
For those of you who like cycling, there is a secure lock up for bike storage.
This year sees the addition of a third double bedroom with shower and WC a few yards away across the courtyard. Please contact us for occupancy of this additional accommodation.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
