In a peaceful village near Bolton Castle with spectacular views of Wensleydale is this idyllic Yorkshire holiday cottage, set in heart of the Yorkshire Dales. With three bedrooms sleeping up to five people comfortably, it's the perfect choice for families or couples looking for a bit of extra room.

This immaculate holiday home is set in one of Yorkshire's most popular areas. Just a few miles from Aysgarth Falls and the market town of Leyburn, it offers the best of both worlds; the chance to experience Yorkshire rural life with every modern convenience just a short drive away.

Step inside to find a spacious and bright open-plan living area with wonderful uninterrupted views of Wensleydale from the window. The lounge area has two new large and very comfy sofas to sink into, specially made for those quiet moments! There is an LCD TV & DVD player to keep you entertained and an open fire to cosy up beside, so grab yourself a glass of something and settle down to the latest box set each evening. There is also internet access with circa 60 MB download/20MB upload available for guests.

The kitchen is just lovely and comes equipped with everything you could want in your holiday home. There's a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine with a further outhouse/boot room housing a handy tumble dryer and additional fridge. Next door is the charming dining room which again boasts stunning floor to ceiling views through the patio door. Seating up to six people very comfortably, it's the place where memories of noisy family breakfasts and candlelit evening meals are made.

All three bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom has bags of space and includes a super king-size bed, so you've lots of room to stretch out and enjoy a lazy morning in your PJs. It also enjoys double aspect windows, again with those glorious views. The second bedroom is a charming double with lots of light from a skylight and additional window. The third is a very sweet single room, the perfect choice for younger ones or those who like to have their own space.

The family bathroom is also up here, a stylish and contemporary space with maple woodwork and a granite sink surround. There's a bath for those long hot soaks and a shower overhead. For your convenience, there is another separate cloakroom downstairs with a WC and sink.

Make your way outside this gorgeous Yorkshire cottage to discover the most amazing views of Penn Hill in Wensleydale, right from the comfort of your own patio. Take your morning coffee out here with the sound of birdsong overhead, and in the summer months indulge with a slap up meal alfresco with the glorious landscape of the Yorkshire Dales as your backdrop. A rather wonderful way to end a day's sight-seeing in this beautiful corner of God's Own Country.

The property is located in Preston-Under-Scar in Wensleydale, one of the most appealing parts of the Yorkshire Dales. Surrounded by some of Yorkshire's most-loved attractions, it's an idyllic spot for a holiday cottage.

Beyond the village lies the exquisite landscape of Wensleydale. The views here are simply stunning. The scene is one of lush valleys, mellow pastures and pretty villages, criss-crossed with acres of dry stone walls along its 40-mile length. Wensleydale is also famed for its waterfalls, the most notable being Aysgarth Falls (8 miles) and Hardraw Force (16 miles). Wensleydale also borders the wild and magnificent dales of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale to the North. A great choice for a day trip if you want to get away from it all.

It's something of a walker's paradise in the Yorkshire Dales with several pleasant walks right from your doorstep. There are also lots of pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range. Jervaulx Abbey is 10 miles away and the thriving market town of Hawes (home of the now famous Wensleydale cheese) is 16 miles away. The gorgeous villages of West Burton and Askrigg are also within 10 miles, so there is lots of choice for things to do if you want to get out and about.

We stayed at the Setts and found it comfortable and warm. The kitchen was attractive and had 6 of everything and cooking equipment. Full size oven and grill plus microwave. Beds were comfortable sofas were squishy. Nice barbecue area outside. Fabulous views of The surrounding countryside and Penhill. There is a booklet explaining how everything worRead moreks and it is important to read all of it at the beginning so you know how to get hot water all the time and also how to operate the oven. The welcome basket of goodies was a nice gesture. The office staff at Gorgeous Cottages very helpful. Would definitely like to stay there again. Hide

Peaceful location in rural village. Cottage extremely well equipped, especially the kitchen. Beds very comfortable but sofas definitely need replacing. Enjoyed comfort of having an open fire even in the middle of August!

A very clean, well presented cottage which with a few tweaks would be perfect.

This is a lovely well equipped cottage and felt more like a home than a holiday cottage. The setting and views were amazing, providing a perfect location for a relaxing break. Only negative was that the single bed wasnt very comfortable.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
