Property code: 76649

A perfect property for those looking to get away, with surrounding countryside proving a variety of walks and cycle routes to explore, or head further afield to Kirby Lonsdale or Kendal.

Boasting bags of character, this five-star retreat near Settle, North Yorkshire, is sure to win everyone over. Welcoming up to two dogs and their four well-behaved humans, its indulgent interiors are rivalled only by its fantastic location betwixt the magical Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the atmospheric Yorkshire Dales National Park. An enchanting setting for those looking for a taste of the wild yet with easy access to local amenities and somewhere luxurious to return to at the end of the day, it ticks all the boxes.

Utterly unique, the property’s superb open beams, period quirks and repurposed features (including an old glass-topped well) really add to its quixotic appeal. Proudly showcasing its heritage without comprising an ounce of comfort, it is truly lovely. Gathered together, look forward to mornings sipping coffee in the courtyard garden before taking dips in the hot tub. For mealtimes, rustle up some treats in the well-equipped kitchen, serving plates around the dining table, and in the evening step up into the lounge and kick back in front of the wood burner, taking turns to shower the dogs with love and affection. Decked out with underfloor heating throughout, this will be a welcome sanctuary whatever the weather.

As well as the front courtyard with hot tub and outdoor seating, there is also an enclosed rear courtyard too. When you are ready to branch out, enjoy the abundance of walks nearby, weaving through rolling fields, tangled forest and wild, heather-strewn moor. Just 8 miles away, a trip to Malham is recommended (mentioned in the Domesday book as 'Malgun'), making sure you also visit the beautiful tarn, Janet's Foss falls and the Tolkien-esque Gordale Scar. While Settle is known for its popular eateries (including a great dog-friendly pub), you can also go to Skipton (17.5 miles) for more choice.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms – 2 super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as twins on request)
  • 2 en-suite bathrooms
  • Electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer and microwave
  • Private hot tub
  • The hot tub is located at the front of the property, alongside the adjacent property which also features a hot tub at the front
  • Wood burner (first basket of logs included)
  • Electric and under floor heating included
  • Off road parking for 2 cars
  • 2 Electric charge points
  • Secure bike racking

Settle (2 miles) is a well-loved and bustling market town 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 market place, 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 (13 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.

The historic town of Skipton (17.5 miles) is also close by and offers a host of other attractions including its very own castle. There are lots of options to eat here as well as independent shops marking it a great option for a full day out. Other nearby attractions include the Kilnsey Trout Farm and horse-riding at Coniston, Malham.

It's a true walker's paradise here but if you're more of a roamer than a rambler, try a stroll around the grounds of nearby Bolton Abbey (23.5 miles). These gorgeous ruins provide the backdrop to a particularly beautiful part of the Dales and are well worth a visit. There are a host of other attractions all within easy reach including Malham Cove and Malham Tarn (both 8.5 miles).
