  • “We had a wonderful week's holiday at Orcaber Cottage.”

    The cottage itself - which is actually a wing of the farmhouse - is beautiful and the welcoming touches which had been provided added to our initial impressions. There were lovely flowers on the table, a bowl of sweets, milk in the fridge, coffee sachets, tea bags etc. The furnishings were both very attractive and also comfortable - eg the lovely, soft throw on the settee, which our young grandson loved wrapping himself in.

    The cottage itself - which is actually a wing of the farmhouse - is beautiful and the welcoming touches which had been provided added to our initial impressions. There were lovely flowers on the table, a bowl of sweets, milk in the fridge, coffee sachets, tea bags etc. The furnishings were both very attractive and also comfortable - eg the lovely, soft throw on the settee, which our young grandson loved wrapping himself in. The bedrooms are super - the large double ensuite, with a great shower room, was amazing, with views across the fields where the horses and sheep grazed, the smaller double and the single room were really comfortable, with plenty of storage/hanging space in the double and a large cupboard in the single, and a shared bathroom with a huge bath as well as a shower. We really enjoyed the garden, with its large table, and plenty of space to play games of boules and croquet, or to just sit and enjoy an early evening drink. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was a bonus having a downstairs loo. It was fun being on a farm, where the 'dog walk' (although we don't have a dog!) takes you around the fields where the Shetland pony and horses graze, and along the riverside. We have tended to avoid holiday cottages where the owners live on site (partly as we are quite a noisy family!) but this was perfect. Gaynor and Neil are helpful but not in any way intrusive - and the thick stone walls means that once you are in the cottage you are unaware of others living in the farm house and the two other holiday cottages. Our grandson was introduced to the two geese by Gaynor, and loved feeding them, along with the free ranging hens! We all - 3 adults and an 8 year old - were incredibly impressed by the standard of comfort, attractiveness and cleanliness of the cottage and loved the local area too. We can't recommend this highly enough.

The property

Austwick 1 mile.

This stone-built wing of a large Dales farmhouse is located on the owner's working farm in beautiful rolling countryside, just one mile from Austwick, one of the most popular villages in the National Park.

In a wonderful location, this first-class holiday cottage offers fabulous views of the surrounding area and is ideal for a large family, group of friends or two couples to get away from it all and enjoy this scenic area.

Renovated to a high standard, the property features a magnificent open plan living area which has underfloor heating provided by a biomass heating system.

This spacious room also has a wonderful central feature woodburning stove set in a stone-built surround.

The L-shaped modern kitchen is well-equipped and there is a spacious dining area to one side providing a great place to eat a delicious meal, reminisce and make plans for the next day.

The remainder of the living area is made up of a fantastic sitting area with a wall-mounted TV and an external door which leads to the garden.

Upstairs the main bedroom has a modern and luxurious en-suite shower room and is a lovely place to wake up and enjoy the great views out across the meadows towards Three Peaks country.

The other bedrooms offer flexible accommodation with one containing a twin bed which can be turned into a super king-size double on request and the other with a single bed and a useful guest bed.

Both of these bedrooms are well-served by a modern bathroom with a bath, separate shower, basin and WC.

This is excellent walking country, with plenty of routes from the doorstep and for the more energetic who love a challenge, the Three Peaks is one not to be missed, taking the average fit walker nearly twelve hours to complete, or they can be enjoyed at your leisure, maybe by doing one a day.

Enjoy scenic drives and cycling along quiet lanes with the rides out towards the Trough of Bowland being particularly special.

Just a mile from the pretty Dales village of Austwick, this is a great place to visit with a village green, excellent local pub, and The Traddock, an award-winning hotel and restaurant.

The market towns of Settle and Kirkby Lonsdale are nearby and Malham Cove is not far away.

Take a trip on the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.

A lovely holiday home in a stunning location.

About the location

AUSTWICK

Settle 5 miles; Ingleton 5 miles; Skipton 20 miles.

Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is arguably one of the finest areas for walking in the region. With limestone pavements and scars, caves and open moors, the area has a wealth of natural interest and there are wonderful cycle tracks and walks on the doorstep. Austwick boasts a local pub serving excellent home cooked meals and a country hotel for something a little more special, as well as a shop and Post Office for visitors’ daily requirements. This quiet village is nicely off the beaten track, yet the market towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal are all within easy driving distance.
