    “This is a stunning cottage in a beautiful, peaceful location.”


    It is tastefully decorated with quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The owners Keith and Zoe made us so welcome and went the extra mile to ensure we had a great stay. There is a lovely patio area where you can sit and admire the gorgeous views. It is ideally situated for exploring the area and there are numerous scenic walks straight from the door. We will certainly be back and would highly recommend it to anyone that appreciates luxury accommodation in a peaceful, scenic location.

The property

Gargrave 2.7 miles.

Nestled in the quiet hamlet of Bell Busk, near the quaint village of Gargrave on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is this delightful single-storey barn conversion, Ash Cottage.

This beautifully renovated holiday home offers a charming setting for a romantic escape to North Yorkshire.

You're greeted by a extensive driveway upon arrival to the property, shared with the guests of the owner's nearby B&B, offering a handy place to leave the car and head off on foot to explore your picturesque surroundings.

Entering into the property you're welcomed into the open-plan living/dining room, decorated with a combination of both contemporary and character features, with exposed wooden beams decorating the vaulted ceiling overhead and flooded with light welcomed in through the bronzed window, where you can take advantage of the views across the River Aire at the front of the property whilst maintaining your privacy.

After a busy day, put your feet up on the rustic chesterfield sofa and enjoy a spot of television, heating the room with the warmth from the electric log burner in the cooler evenings, before continuing through to the contemporary fitted kitchen, well equipped with all of the necessities required to prepare an intimate meal to enjoy with your significant other at the dining table.

Head outside to enjoy a refreshing glass of wine, chilled in the elegant cooler, taking in the peaceful setting of your private patio area, or socialize with a seat in the shared gardens, boasting breath-taking views across the distant countryside.

As the day draws to a close, rest your head in the king-size bedroom, featuring a traditional solid oak four poster bed and framing delightful views of the Yorkshire Dales through the window.

In the morning, prepare for another day of adventure in the contemporary bathroom, tiled throughout and fit with a spacious walk-in shower cubicle.

Take the short walk into the quaint hamlet of Bell Busk and visit the beautifully renovated Otterbeck Distillery, where you can explore the sights of the wonderful botanicals and the towering 450 litre copper still, discovering the exciting story of the Distillery's rich history and learning about the distillation process to produce premium Gin.

Head further afield to the nearby village of Gargrave, nested on the banks of the River Aire and home to a selection of pubs, cafes and boutique shops.

Indulge in a portion of fish and chips from The Frying Yorkshireman as you take a leisurely stroll along the riverfront, soaking in the picturesque sights of the water.

If you time it right, head to Gargrave Village Hall, where you can delight in a musical tribute act or watch an action-packed theatre performance.

History buffs will be delighted with a visit to the market town of Skipton, home to Skipton Castle, a well preserved Grade I Listed medieval castle dating back to the 12th century.

Treat yourself to a bit of luxury and indulge in a spot of afternoon tea as you enjoy a scenic canal cruise on the Leeds and Liverpool canal with Skipton Boat Trips.

For an unforgettable trip to explore the delights of North Yorkshire, choose Ash Cottage.

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.
