About Hill Top

Discover the magical and romantic Hill Top, a chocolate box country cottage set deep in the heart of Wensleydale. With cosy welcoming interiors and views to die for, Hill Top offers a heavenly rural escape into the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales?

Tucked away on a hillside of this lush green dale, Hill Top is one of those idyllic little houses that just define the word cottage. Arrive to a handsome stone exterior clad clematis and roses, leading you into a warm and inviting home. Inside you'll find a generous living room with an original stone fireplace and wood-burning stove at its heart. Light up the fire and take your pick from two comfy sofas or a rocking chair to curl up on. Yorkshire stone flagstones underfoot and exposed beams overhead give the room bags of character. Make sure to watch your head on the low beam coming in!

In addition to its period charm there are lots of contemporary comforts too. You'll find a SMART TV with Freesat as well as a DVD Player, radio, Bluetooth speaker and Wi-Fi. So lots to keep you entertained each evening after a day's walking in the Dales.

Make your way through to the atmospheric kitchen diner where further exposed stone walls and floors continue the period feel. The bespoke kitchen features a range-master cooker & induction hob set under a stone lintel, cream shaker-style units, a Belfast sink and solid beech work-top. There's also a lovely stripped pine dresser home to a range of striking crockery. All the usual mod cons are provided including a full-size dishwasher. A further utility room / boot room has a washing machine and fridge freezer.

At the heart of the kitchen is a circular dining table, the perfect spot to settle down to a hearty Yorkshire meal. Or to spread out the Sunday papers on while you relax with your morning coffee. No need to rush today

Hill Top enjoys the luxury of a seperate formal dining room with an original stone fireplace and stone flagged floors. Accessed through the sitting room you'll find a solid oak dining table to gather around as well as an antique sideboard and George 111 corner cupboard. The bookcase in here is home to lots of books and a cd player. Rugs on the floor keep everything nice and cosy.

Downstairs is also home to a wet-room style shower room. Perfect if you're just back muddy and windswept after a walk in the hills. Dash in here to warm yourself up ready to settle down for the evening.

Both bedrooms in Hill Top are set upstairs. The first is the gorgeous master bedroom which enjoys views out to the front over the dale. This light and peaceful room has an under-stated elegant appeal with its off-white walls, white iron double bed and high ceilings. An original cast iron fireplace and exposed floor boards add to the character of the room. The star of the show is the patio doors leading out onto your own private roof terrace. Complete with a patio table and chairs, the views from here are just breath-taking, a wonderful place to take in dusk falling over the dales.

The second bedroom is also facing to the front and continues the country cottage theme with its white and subtle blue accents. There's another double bed in here, and those amazing views are waiting for you through the window. Rest a while on the window seat and drink them in.

Upstairs is also home to the house bathroom featuring a pretty roll top bath with shower overhead. Indulge yourself with a long hot bath each evening?.

There is much to enjoy outside Hill Top too including a beautiful cottage garden with lots of mature roses and different seating areas. There's also a fledgling wild flower meadow to discover. Settle down to lunch al afresco and marvel at the local birdlife all around. Solar lighting allows you to continue enjoying this garden well into the evening.

Local Area

The cottage has a fantastic location.  Nestling high up on a hillside in Raydale, a quiet secret dale off Upper Wensleydale the views here are simply stunning.  Wensleydale also borders the wild and magnificent dales to the North of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale.  A great choice for a day trip if you want to get away from it all.

The local area takes in 2 lakes including Semerwater, Yorkshire's largest natural lake. The great British artist Turner himself was so impressed by the beauty of this landscape that he painted it several times. There is a lovely walk to the lake from the cottage past a ruined church, down to the shore - the perfect spot for a picnic. The River Bain, Britain's shortest river, runs out of Semerwater.

It's something of a walker's paradise with many stunning walks right from your doorstep. Strike out on foot and discover why the Yorkshire Dales are so renowned for offering some of the best walking in the UK. Take in the sights and sounds of untouched nature and remind yourself how good it is to unplug for a while.

At night, the total lack of light pollution makes this the most amazing location to star gaze. Settle down on your bedroom terrace and take in the night skies.

There are lots of pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of Hill Top.  Asygarth Falls and Bolton Castle are a few miles away, the thriving market town of Hawes (home of the now famous Wensleydale cheese) is just a few minutes by car. The gorgeous villages of West Burton and Askrigg are also just a few miles from here so lots of choice for things to do if you want to get out and about.
