  • “Adorable farm hands cottage - wonderful views - great location.”
    Up the road from here is a more modern typical tourist conversion that feels touristy, but this place feels, well, words fail me, to paint a picture of just how lovely it is. OK it is helped along it way by hitting on good weather. The place is small but large it that makes any sense. It is a cottage for two. A fab bathroom, lovely bedroom and to our surprise VERY comfortable beds. Two large squidgy singles with fresh sweet smelling linen. I am writing this as I sit overlooking the most lovely ...
    Up the road from here is a more modern typical tourist conversion that feels touristy, but this place feels, well, words fail me, to paint a picture of just how lovely it is. OK it is helped along it way by hitting on good weather. The place is small but large it that makes any sense. It is a cottage for two. A fab bathroom, lovely bedroom and to our surprise VERY comfortable beds. Two large squidgy singles with fresh sweet smelling linen. I am writing this as I sit overlooking the most lovely view from our sweet lounge. This place is quaint, a little old fashioned but homely, a true sense of contentment envelopes you. I am a demanding person yet this place calms me. The owner is charming, helpful and even baked a cake for us. Fresh flowers in the hall greeted us on arrival. There are some splendid walks from right outside your door and not far is the town/village of Skipton with a lively good market, some pretty good restaurants, do try Le Bistro, very French and tasty food. I strongly recommend this place, it gives you the sense of living here, even if for us it was just one week. Have no fear we will be back.

The property

A charming, semi-detached 17th century cottage in the peaceful hamlet of Bank Newton.

This Dales cottage is set in beautiful rolling countryside.

The upstairs twin bedroom has south-facing views over the enclosed garden and fields beyond.

Downstairs, the comfortable sitting room is a pleasant place to relax after enjoying an interesting day out in the Dales and when the sun is shining it is lovely to open up the door to the garden.

You will also find a spacious kitchen with dining area which is well equipped and light, ideal for preparing meals for two to enjoy indoors, or on a sunny day out in the beautiful garden.

The ground floor is complete with a shower room which has underfloor heating.

Guests will enjoy the abundance of birdlife and wildlife that can be viewed from both inside the cottage and outside.

Bank Newton is surrounded by wonderful countryside and walks from the doorstep can be enjoyed along the canal towpath, bridle tracks and footpaths.

The Nook is on National Cycle Route 68 and train enthusiasts will enjoy the Settle-Carlisle Railway.

About the location

GARGRAVE

Skipton 4 miles; Settle 12 miles.

A pretty village on the banks of the River Aire, around 7 miles from Malham, with its spectacular limestone cove and scar. In the village you will find a selection of places to eat including a fantastic Indian restaurant, along with a small selection of pubs, cafes and shops. Traversed by the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, cycle route 68 and the Pennine Way, Gargrave is a fantastic base for exploring this part of Yorkshire. Four miles away is the ancient market town of Skipton — “The Gateway to the Dales” — with its historic castle and celebrated high street. On the border of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is an ideal location for walking, cycling and touring.
