The property

This delightful, stone-built semi-detached cottage sits amongst quiet countryside in the small hamlet above Wray, two miles from Low Bentham, making an ideal romantic retreat for those wishing to enjoy the great outdoors.

There is an open plan living area with modern furnishings, a stylish, well-equipped kitchen with views of Ingleborough and a woodburner to settle beside on frosty nights.

The bedroom has a good quality king-size bed with a 10'' memory foam mattress, integrated TV and ample storage, whilst the bathroom has a steel bath, power shower, underfloor heating, a heated towel rail and contemporary fixtures.

Outside, a secluded rear garden, which is accessed from the living area through the patio doors, is an ideal place to enjoy the wildlife, the afternoon/evening sun and a little alfresco dining.

Cycling is available either on the adjacent National Cycle Route 69, or for mountain bikers, directly down the bridleway which leads from the property.

Walks for all abilities are available throughout the area.

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, sweeping upward to the magnificent wilderness of The Forest of Bowland, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For golfers, there is a selection of wonderful courses nearby, the closest being in High Bentham.

Ingleton is just a little further, offering a collection of shops and traditional old pubs huddled around its quaint square, along with an open air, heated swimming pool available during the summer.

The bustling market town of Settle is nearby with its weekly market, or for a great day out, take a tour along the renowned Settle-Carlisle Railway line, which steams through some of the most inspiring upland scenery in the country, and the nearby Wennington Railway Station is on the Leeds-Morecambe line.

This cosy cottage provides all the ingredients for a romantic break.
