Charming cottage set in the idyllic riverside location of Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales, offering a wonderful countryside retreat to a tranquil spot whilst sitting close to many attractions in the area.

Take one ecstatic furry friend with you to this handsome, single-storey stone cottage at Little Crakehall in North Yorkshire. Just 2.5 miles from the bustling market town of Bedale, the romantic retreat for two makes an idyllic base for exploring the picturesque countryside surrounding you and venturing out into the Yorkshire Dales or the North York Moors National Park. Head back to spend time with your favourite four-legged friend in the cosy cottage or out in the sunshine in its garden.

Enter this inviting abode to find an open-plan lounge/diner/kitchen, where you and your happy hound can relax in comfort. Switch on the living flame fire, choose a film on TV and recline with Rover happily at your feet. Prepare dinner for all three of you with tasty local produce you have sourced on your trips out and dine either inside the cottage or out. As night falls, bid your happy chap goodnight and head off to your bedroom, which has a shower room, with underfloor heating next door. Throw open the French doors to sit out in the courtyard whenever the weather is fine, and watch Rover frolic on the lawn as you fire up the BBQ at dinner time.

Lace up your walking boots, grab the lead and watch soft ears prick up when you head off to explore the lower Dales. Walk beside the river or stroll to Bedale to enjoy lunch in any one of dog-friendly pubs and cafes. Drive 8 miles to Masham on the edge of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and follow a 3.5-mile circular walk along the rivers Burn and Ure, with plenty of opportunities for your pup to paddle. Or drive 9 miles to East Witton on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales to wander through Wensleydale.

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

The cottage is located in Little Crakehall, just outside the market town of Bedale. It is set in a unique heritage site with a historic working watermill which has featured in various TV programmes and films, including the BBC's Countryfile series. The village itself is very pretty, a large green is overlooked by the manor house and the pub, and there are a cricket ground and a children's park in the centre of the village. The walk to the village green from the cottage is a pleasant 5-minute stroll across the river.

Beyond the village, the handsome town of Bedale is worth a visit. Stop for a coffee before making your way around the town's antique shops. In the opposite direction, you'll find Leyburn (8.5 miles), an archetypical slice of Dales market town life where traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gather around a handsome town square, which hosts a busy market every Friday. Leyburn is also home to the biggest auction centre outside of London if you fancy picking up a bargain. The nearby town of Richmond (9.5 miles) is similar in many ways and has a lovely setting along the River Swale.

There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of the cottage. Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle are both within 16 miles and the picturesque villages of West Burton and Askrigg are under 20.5 miles, so lots of choices for things to do if you want to get out and about. If walking is your thing, the Yorkshire Dales are something of a walker's paradise.

Handily placed for the Yorkshire Dales but also fairly close to the Moors. The property was nicely presented, comfortable and bright.

A delightful cottage to spend a week - or more! A little disappointing that the local pub seems to be a little hit and miss with regards to opening times. These things happen.

Reviewed by Moira 17th November 2018

A delightful cosy and comfortable cottage ideally located for visiting the Yorkshire Dales and Moors. Tranquil and peaceful yet only a five minute walk to the village. Super comfortable bed. Charming and helpful owners on site. Highly recommended.
