The property

A stone built, ground floor detached cottage located in the owner’s grounds, in the famous Dales village of Arncliffe, the original setting for Emmerdale Farm.

The cottage itself boasts its own history, based on having been part of an award-winning garden at the Chelsea Flower show just a few years ago.

An ideal location for a romantic break or a great base just to get away from it all and enjoy the beautiful surroundings in this walker’s paradise.

The biking is also excellent and The Bothy provides a secure bike area.

With beautiful modern styling throughout, the owners have gone to great lengths to provide a luxurious and well thought out holiday home of considerable merit and style.

Small and cute best describes the open-plan L shaped layout with a modern kitchen greeting guests at the main entrance.

Walk into the living area where there is a king-size bed at the centre of the room, two comfortable easy chairs and a small dining area.

Cosy throughout with high ceilings, a lovely oak floor, contemporary lighting and the added benefit of lovely views of the surrounding gardens.

A superb en-suite facility with walk-in shower unit provides the icing on the cake for this lovely little holiday home.

Immediately outside the main entrance door is a patio area enclosed by a traditional dry-stone wall and is a great place to sit, enjoy dining al-fresco and take in some of the surrounding fells.

To the front and side of the cottage are mature gardens and the stone bench was enjoyed by the Queen when she visited the exhibition at the Chelsea flower show.

The village itself is in an idyllic location, with a large green to the centre of the village surrounded by traditional stone-built cottages and farm buildings and was the original film set for Emmerdale.

A two-minute walk will take you to the village pub, which was the famous Woolpack pub that featured in the soap and you can still get a pitcher of Ale to enjoy.

Arncliffe is a real jewel in the crown for the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is an excellent base if you are looking to experience the most idyllic scenery and best walking and cycling opportunities in the Yorkshire Dales.

The walks to Malham and Kettlewell are highly recommended, as well as visiting nearby Grassington and the ever popular Skipton with its weekly market and famous high street.

Get away from it all and enjoy Dales life at its very best.

About the location


Malham 8.5 miles; Skipton 10.5 miles

A beautiful, well-known village in the civil parish of Littondale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. You may recognise this delightful village, especially if you're a TV soaps fan as Arncliffe was the original setting for Emmerdale, with the Falcon Inn pub acting as the Woolpack in the show. The River Skirfare runs through the village and is rife for fishing. As well as having some incredible natural scenery, the area is also a haven for walkers and cyclists with seemingly endless trails right on your doorstep. A fantastic, scenic walk up a narrow, country path takes you to the stunning Malham, the perfect place for scenery. Skipton is the nearest sizeable town, with charming buildings and a good range of shops and places to eat.
