Here at Sykes HQ we love having a little nose at the new cottages every now and then. As you would probably expect we get a massive variety come through the doors, from mansions up in Scotland to cosy romantic retreats in Wales. However in light of the fact that it is English Tourism week we’ve decided to give you the low-down on a few of our favourite new cottages in England along with what makes them special.
The Chapel, Lowgill, Yorkshire Dales
If you’re after a quiet break in the North of England then the Chapel is the place for you! Tucked away in the village of Lowgill near Wear, just 40 minutes drive away from the natural beauty of the Lake District this delightful Chapel conversion would be perfect for a group of friends or a family looking for a week away from it all. With four double bedrooms, including a King Size and a Super King Size, each of which have their own en suite bathroom, an open plan living space and a second sitting room complete with wood burning stove you’ll be able to spend a week in luxury. Then there’s also the not so small matter of the designer kitchen and the beautiful garden tailor made for a bit of outdoor dining in the summer months that will make any holiday spent in the Chapel a good one.
The Sett, Beelsby, Lincolnshire
The Sett in the village of Beelsby is the perfect cottage for a little romantic break. Nestled in amongst the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and not too far from the the seaside resorts of Cleethorpes and Maplethorpe the Sett is perfect for making the most of both worlds. The cottage itself is a delightful little detached bungalow that is beautifully decorated and well appointed throughout. It comes with a contemporary and stylish kitchen perfect for rustling up a delicious treat, a cosy bedroom with French doors leading out to the patio in the back garden and an en suite bathroom with a stunning free standing bath.
Beningborough, Middleham, Yorkshire Dales
Or maybe you’re looking for something a bit bigger? Well if so then this brand new cottage might be perfect for you! Situated in the picturesque Wensleydale town of Middleham, Beningborough is a fantastic property for a slightly larger group with its four double bedrooms and two sofa beds (it’s also next door to cottage 905077 if there’s a particularly large group looking to stay). The property itself is a barn conversion hidden away amongst the Dales countryside which the owners have recently renovated to a very high standard. Outstanding features include a modern take on the traditional farmhouse kitchen with a centrepiece island and also the beautiful two-tiered garden out back.
Hopefully after reading that you’ll agree with me when I say that we’ve had some cracking cottages joining the Sykes fold recently so make sure you keep checking the New Cottages page just in case your dream holiday home turns up.
