The property

This lovely detached, stone-built former livestock building is set in beautiful rolling countryside overlooking Weets Hill, on the outskirts of the old market town of Barnoldswick, just eight miles from Skipton.

A perfect romantic retreat with the benefit of a fairly remote setting, ideal for getting away from it all for a luxury break, and yet near enough to the town to walk in and enjoy a night out with the friendly locals.

Set out over one floor, this cottage is beautifully appointed throughout, with contemporary styling designed to take advantage of the wonderful views and create a fabulous retreat for couples.

Featuring an open plan living area with stylish furniture, a cosy woodburning stove for those cold winter nights and a kitchen/diner with French doors leading out to a private patio area containing a luxurious hot tub, which is a great place to sit, relax and take in the lovely countryside.

There is a spacious bedroom with a super king-size bed providing a little extra luxury and the modern bathroom features a walk-in power shower.

With individual styling throughout and a high level of equipment, visitors have everything at their disposal for that well-earned break in the country.

The walks from the doorstep stretch out in every direction and the walk to the summit of Weets Hill, a local favourite, from where on a good clear day Blackpool Tower can be seen, or at least that's what the locals claim.

A little further afield is Pendle Hill, of Pendle Witch fame, which is another great challenge.

The walk across open meadows to the old Roman road, and the canal walks to West Marton and Salterforth are also firm favourites in the area.

The town provides a good range of local pubs, including the Cellar Bar and the Fountain Inn, both providing live music and a friendly atmosphere.

Close by is Thornton Hall Farm Country Park, which offers quad biking, safari rides, a children's play area and animals.

The nearby towns and villages provide good eateries and are well worth a visit, including Skipton, Gisburn and Clitheroe.

Alternatively, visit the fabulous Trough of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it's well worth a drive through to visit some of the finest gastropubs in the north of England.

For the more energetic, the bike riding and walking opportunities to be found in the surrounding area are excellent.

This outstanding holiday cottage is a wonderful romantic retreat for discovering this hidden gem.
