    “Lovely cottage, very nice shower ...”
    Lovely cottage, very nice shower and good kitchen facilities (although a chopping board would help!). The location at Eadtby is perfect - nice quiet village but in walking distance to pub in Embsay and a short drive to the delightful town of Skipton, which has a pretty high street, lots of shops, regular market and two supermarkets. Eastby is also on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, which are fabulous for walking and exploring. Highly recommended.

The property

Embsay 1 mile.

This delightful semi-detached stone-built cottage is attached to the owners' home and is situated in the hamlet of Eastby, just one mile from Embsay in the Yorkshire Dales.

This lovely cottage provides outstanding holiday accommodation in a wonderful area.

All ground floor, this cottage was originally the wing of a former coaching inn and has been individually styled and furnished with a great combination of old and new, to really bring out the best in this charming cottage.

The open plan design provides a modern kitchen which is well-equipped together with a beautiful sitting room which has a cosy gas stove, old beams and a lovely dining area.

Voile curtains provide a screen between the spacious bedroom with a super king-size bed and TV and luxurious furnishings and the welcoming living area.

A fabulous location for a romantic break, with excellent walking from the doorstep, a short country walk to the two excellent pubs in nearby Embsay and just a short drive to the many splendours of the National Park.

Nearby Skipton is a real joy, with its famous castle and market, a great range of pubs, restaurants and the wonderful high street with its old cobbled streets.

You can visit the market towns of Skipton and Settle, or the popular Wharfedale villages of Bolton Abbey, Burnsall and Grassington.

The well-loved village of Malham with its dramatic limestone cove, is only half an hour's drive away and Harrogate, York and Bronte Country are also nearby.
