The property

Surrounded by rolling green countryside and positioned down its very own private driveway, just above the Pennine Hills' village of Cowling, is Beaushaw Well Farm built in 1635 with Meadow Cottage accompanying it as one of the recently converted out buildings.

Set amongst a collection of two converted barns and a farmhouse, the location is splendid and peaceful with the only neighbours being the owner's family.

It is the ideal base for a family holiday or a countryside break with friends.

Make yourselves right at home in the bright and spacious lounge, with the warmth from the gas stove keeping you toasty as you enjoy a game of cards at the coffee table or tune into the TV.

French doors lead out to the sunny patio, which you can open up on a warm day and allow a fresh breeze to circulate this beautiful open space, inviting the outdoors in.

The farmhouse-style kitchen is well-equipped, playing host to a lovely set of base and wall units, with a lovely dining area tucked into the corner, so you can get together for home-cooked meals.

There is also a a handy utility room housing a washing machine, so you can keep on top of your laundry if need be.

Lastly, the ground floor plays host to a family shower room, with a large walk-in shower cubicle and a twin bedroom, which is ideal for the kids.

Climb the staircase to find the master bedroom enjoying a super king-size double bed, dresser, wardrobe and two bedside tables with lamps for reading, while the French doors to the Juliet balcony frame offer wonderful views of the fields.

Outside, you can take in more of the tremendous outlook with a spot of alfresco dining and a refreshing glass of wine, while the village of Cowling plays host to a local pub nearby should you wish to venture out.

You also have the market town of Skipton within easy reach, known as the 'Gateway to the Dales', with its ancient castle and colourful market displayed on its cobbled streets.

Try out an array of outdoor activities in the local area including swimming, golf, tennis and abundant walking trails.

This is just the getaway you have been looking for.

    “Meadow cottage was a delight.”

    Very spacious and comfortable. Walks from the doorstep. Within easy reach of other attractions but equally a lovely rural setting with lots of nature to observe. Thank you.

About the location


Skipton 7 miles.

The ancient village of Cowling sits across a hillside in the Pennine Hills, just seven miles from the market town of Skipton. A thriving village, built along a main high street with stone-built, terraced houses set alongside the mills of a bygone age. The village was once sparsely populated, the bulk of the population living in Ickornshaw and Middleton, and before that on Cowling Hill, close to water sources they depended on, and the main roads of the day - now used as back roads by locals to avoid the modern day traffic. In the early days, agriculture was the main occupation, with corn being grown and ground within the village. When canal transport boomed, corn became cheaper to buy from elsewhere and so the mills in Cowling turned from grinding corn to weaving during the Industrial Revolution. The village inn was once part of a farmhouse on Cowling Hill, but was sold as changes to the structure of the village began. The son of the landlord later opened the Bay Horse Hotel on the new road, which still stands as a main feature of village life. The nearby Quaker village of Lothersdale was, at one time, home to Charlotte Bronte who modelled Gateshead Hall in Jane Eyre on Stone Gappe House where she was governess. Today many visitors passing through the village are walkers, on their way along the Pennine Way on the stretch from Cowling to Gargrave. There's the large retail outlet of Boundary Mills, just six miles away, a must for lovers of shoping, and Skipton, known as 'The Gateway to the Dales' is nearby. Skipton is a lovely old market town with much to interest the enthusiastic visitor, boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. In 2008 the Academy of Urbanism voted Skipton High Street the best shopping spot in Britain, and The Copper Dragon Brewery, opened in 2002 is highly rated in the CAMRA listings. Steam railways with regular excursions are available at Embsay and Bolton Abbey, and the Leeds to Liverpool Canal passes through Skipton with the one mile long Foulridge Tunnel and the 5-rise locks at Bingley within a short distance away. In 2014 the area hosted the first leg of the Tour De France, bringing in many visitors from far and wide to this wonderful area.
