The Property

This delightful, detached, handcrafted log cabin is situated in a secluded spot, within two acres of its own grounds on the outskirts of Tosside on the border of North Yorkshire and Lancashire. This Tosside cottage provides the perfect countryside retreat for couples, small families or groups of friends hoping to get away from it all and enjoy the wonders of this fantastic area, with the added bonus of a private hot tub. Boasting natural character and charm, overlooked by nothing but the surrounding countryside; this Tosside cottage creates the refreshing feeling of being in the great outdoors that only a rustic timber lodge can. This Gisburn Forest lodge offers three comfortable bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and a modern bathroom. You will find a large kitchen, equipped with a range cooker and a spacious sitting room, boasting an impressive flat screen HD TV and a lovely dining area. French doors lead outside to beautiful decking and your very own private hot tub overlooking the lawned garden; the perfect spot to enjoy the delightful cottage grounds and views beyond. Wonderfully isolated, the lodge’s grounds are home to two resident pheasants and a little robin, keen to show off his handsome red plumage. Deer can often be seen across the beck, while sheep graze in the nearby fields and bats flutter across the star-spangled night sky. Why not spend the day exploring local walks and challenging bike rides, offered from your doorstep, before retiring luxuriously to the hot tub for the evening? A short stroll from the lodge, the Crowtrees Inn provides live Saturday night entertainment and excellent food, whilst the Bowland Fell Holiday Park offers the use of an indoor, heated swimming pool and games room, at a small charge. The area offers outdoor activities and pursuits in abundance, such as pony trekking, golf, caving and even trout fishing in the Stocks Reservoir! A few minutes’ drive away is the Gisburn Forest Bike Trail, offering fantastic mountain biking for people of all abilities. Why not take a trip to the White Scar Caves, the Settle-Carlisle Railway, the famous Ribblehead Viaduct, Malham Cove and Tarn and Bolton Abbey? Yorkshire is alive with wonderful days out to suit everyone. If a day spent simply perusing gift and craft shops is more your cup of tea, the historic market towns of Settle, Clitheroe and Skipton are all within easy driving distance of this lovely Tosside cottage.

About the location

TOSSIDE

Settle 6 miles; Clitheroe 12 miles; Skipton 15 miles.

Tosside is a small, attractive Yorkshire Dales village set between the Forest of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales, six miles from Settle, and fifteen miles from Skipton, popularly known as The Gateway to the Dales. Historically part of Yorkshire, following boundary changes in the 1970s, the village now straddles two counties, with the Eastern part of the village in Yorkshire, and the Western part in Lancashire! The village is home to a local pub, a church and a community centre. To the north, the landscape rises to the fells, moors and picturesque valleys of the Dales, while to the south are the wetlands of the Ribble Valley, which in turn, sweep upward to the magnificent wilderness of Bowland, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Nearby Settle is a bustling market town with a weekly market, the centre being dominated by the Shambles, an historic 3-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, or for a great day out, travel on the renowned Settle-Carlisle Railway line, which crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Venture to Clitheroe, a busy market town full of lively bars and restaurants, friendly pubs, and a castle!
