Welcome to Buttercup Cottage, a cosy stone cottage on the Western edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park that's the ideal base for anyone looking to explore this stunning part of the country.
Step inside Buttercup Cottage and you'll find a warm and welcoming living room with an abundance of character and charm. This room has country style just right with perfectly pitched cushions and throws. It's kept light and bright with wooden floors (ideal for your four-legged friends) and fresh white walls. At the heart of the room is an Inglenook fireplace complete with a cosy wood-burner, perfect for snuggling in front of after a day out walking in the Dales. And with a comfortable sofa and SMART TV, you can catch up on your favourite programmes if you fancy a quiet night in.
This room is also home to the bespoke oak dining table, just the right size for two. It's positioned by a large window so you can make the most of wonderful views as you enjoy your meal.
Head from the living room directly into the well-equipped kitchen which features handsome red quarry floor tiling, ivory shaker style units and a solid wood counter. You'll find all the utensils and appliances you need to rustle up provisions for days out exploring and hearty suppers on your return. As well as the cooker and electric hob, there's a useful microwave, fridge with ice-box, kettle, coffee pot and toaster. When the weather's nice you may want to take your morning cuppa onto the adjoining private patio.
Head upstairs to the bedroom at Buttercup Cottage with its accents of green and soft ochre that work very well with the countryside views from the window. A neutral carpet is warm under your toes and we simply love the Colefax & Fowler feature wallpaper with its pretty flowers and butterflies. This spacious room comes with a large set of drawers and a wardrobe as well as two bedside cabinets for storing your holiday clothes. The pretty bedside lamps are ideal for night time reading or if you just fancy a subtler lighting option.
Also upstairs is the contemporary bathroom which is crisp and white throughout. The bath comes with an overhead shower so you can have the best of both worlds - an invigorating shower each morning and a relaxing bath each night. Light some candles and this tranquil space is a soothing oasis of calm with stunning views of meadows and fells to enjoy.
Head outside and there's lots to enjoy here too. Buttercup Cottage is surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and comes with a charming courtyard garden so that you can make the most of the lovely spot and countryside views. There's a table and chairs out here enabling you to enjoy an al fresco lunch and you'll find a selection of scenic walks straight from your front door.
Buttercup Cottage is located in the quiet hamlet of Millthrop on the edge of Sedbergh - a town that's mentioned in the Doomsday book. The property is surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and because it's on the cusp of Yorkshire and Cumbia it is ideal for exploring both areas.
The famous Dales Way runs through Millthrop and you can walk along here to the pretty village of Dent which well-known for its cobbled streets or to Sedburgh which is just 700 metres away.
Sedburgh itself is a handsome market town with a selection of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants to mooch around so you won't be short of things to do. It's known as 'England's Booktown' and as well as some great book shops you'll find a book shelter where you can take a book for free (as long as you replace it with another one). Each September Sedburgh holds Sheepfest - a celebration of the sheep and wool industry that once thrived in the town. You can also learn more about this fascinating heritage all year round at Farfield Mill.
Nearby places to visit include the market town of Kirkby Lonsdale which has made a name for itself in recent years for its high-quality independent shops and excellent restaurants. There's also plenty of history to explore here to as the town is home to the 14th century Devil's Bridge and Ruskin View which inspired a 19th century painting by J M Turner.
Other natural sights and pretty villages worth visiting in the Dales include Askrigg, West Burton and Aysgarth Falls. Hawes is also short drive from Buttercup Cottage and as well as being England's highest market town it is home to the famous Wensleydale Creamery.
