Georgian farmhouse beautifully updated, ideally located for exploring the Lakes and the Dales, the perfect getaway to relax with family and friends.

Situated in a tranquil location in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and offering convenient access to the neighbouring Lake District National Park, this remarkable property provides a stunning country base for any outdoor activity enthusiasts or holidaymakers simply hoping to explore charming nearby towns and villages.

Just a short distance from Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal and with Settle a little further afield, a stay right here offers you the chance to soak up the very best in the countryside cultures of Yorkshire and Cumbria. Whether you’re walking or cycling, engaging in some more adrenaline-pumping adventures or simply sightseeing amongst the scenery, this location couldn’t be better.

Sleeping an impressive ten guests and with the option to bring two dogs along for the stay, this stunning Georgian farmhouse provides a truly five-star stay for your family or friends. Get together with lifelong pals or bring the extended family together to enjoy a stay right here.

Having arrived at this stunning detached property, head inside via the porch and stop off in the hallway. Here you’ll find a stunning staircase which connects the ground floor to the first floor, along with antique-style furniture which introduces the overarching style of this lovingly presented holiday home.

From the hallway step into one of two lounge spaces. The main lounge features an abundance of cushy seating options, a wood burner and a TV/DVD for whiling away an evening together. This is replicated in the second lounge, a spot where an open fire offers a warm and inviting ambience for cooler winter nights. There's a large selection of books and games available for your use when staying here, and the benefit of two lounges ensures that both adults and children have a space to relax as day turns to night.

You’ll always find space for the whole group to come together in the handsome dining room. This space connects both the main living room and the conservatory, making it a social central hub of the stunning property. Complete with exposed brickwork, stone flagged flooring and a sprawling dining table that’ll host ten guests, this spot is perfect for any celebratory meal due to be enjoyed together.

The aforementioned conservatory is a stylishly appointed space with additional seating and floor-to-ceiling windows. A perfect suntrap for warmer weather, this space offers the perfect transition from inside to outside and will no doubt host your late-night drinks on sunny yet chilly evenings.

Complete with a farmhouse-inspired interior and up-to-date appliances, the kitchen is fitted with everything you need to feed the troops. Featuring two electric ovens and a handy dishwasher, cooking for ten won’t be a struggle for whoever’s nominated to keep the family fed.

Heading back via the hallway, discover a private hallway with additional utility functions for staying on top of your chores whilst away. A utility space with a washer/dryer, an additional fridge/freezer and some storage space provide the perfect laundry room for getting a head start on your washing before heading home.

Next door sits a ground-floor shower room with a WC, fitted in a contemporary style and providing a handy getting ready space for early in the morning.

Completing the ground floor’s offering is a versatile ground-floor bedroom with a king-size zip-and-link bed. This handsome bedroom can be made up as a twin for those who require additional sleeping arrangements.

Venture back to the main hallway and ascend the stairs to find four further bedrooms, all of which are equipped with Bluetooth speakers.

An additional zip-and-link bedroom right here provides more versatile sleeping options for two. This super-king-size room also features a TV for those who prefer to enjoy some alone time of an evening.

Next up, you’ll find two king-size bedrooms, each of which features traditional-style farmhouse décor with feature design elements, clean and fresh linens and comfortable mattresses to sink into. Each of these bedrooms is equipped with a TV/DVD for further entertainment.

Finally, a majestic super-king-size bedroom makes up the property’s master. This beautifully presented bedroom features a romantic chaise lounge, a feature fireplace and, of course, the added bonus of a TV/DVD for lazy mornings in bed. Complete with a zip-and-link bed which can be split up as a twin, this room is a wonderful choice for your guests of honour. The room comes with an adjacent en-suite and luxurious roll-top bath into which to sink.

A secondary bath can be located in the spacious family bathroom, complete with a separate shower and an abundance of room for getting ready first thing.

Having soaked up the wonders of the property’s interior, step outside from either the kitchen, conservatory or the main entrance to discover an abundant outdoor space. Here you’ll find garden and patio areas with stunning landscapes to soak up, a sumptuous hot tub, charcoal BBQ and space for all to sit around and dine alfresco.

Whilst the property sits within effortless reach of Kendal (7.5 miles) and Kirkby Lonsdale (6.5 miles), its remote location ensures that the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales can always be appreciated throughout your stay.

Jump in the car and treat the local town of Settle (24 miles) as your base for adventure when staying here and unlock the many wonders of the Yorkshire Dales. This well-loved and bustling market town is home to lots of lovely cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops. There's also a thriving market held in the town every Tuesday - the perfect place to pick up everything from flowers to dinner that night. If real ale is your thing, there are three fantastic real ale pubs set around the marketplace, so you can choose which one to try each evening!

Just outside of town, you can hop on the Settle to Carlisle railway, one of the most scenic routes in the UK which will take you over the well-known Ribblehead Viaduct (18 miles). Beyond Settle, you have the exquisite delights of the Yorkshire Dales. And, as you would expect, the surrounding countryside here is simply magnificent, perfect if you want to strike out from the cottage in your walking boots or on your bicycle.

Absolutely. Three Mile Cottage is lovely and very homely, unlike cottages we have stayed at before that sometimes feel like a 'holiday rental'. The owner has put so much effort into the finishing touches to such high standard that make all the difference. We will definitely be returning.

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.
