    “Beautiful cottage”

    The cottage is beautiful. The new owners had only recently taken over the cottage and have updated it. Everything is of a high quality and the cottage is immaculate and clean throughout. The upgraded outdoor furniture was much appreciated and the hot tub was perfect after being out all day! The cottage is in a remote and peaceful location surrounded by fields - an ideal base for exploring the Dales. There were plenty of footpaths nearby but as we had a car, we visited various places further ...

    The cottage is beautiful. The new owners had only recently taken over the cottage and have updated it. Everything is of a high quality and the cottage is immaculate and clean throughout. The upgraded outdoor furniture was much appreciated and the hot tub was perfect after being out all day! The cottage is in a remote and peaceful location surrounded by fields - an ideal base for exploring the Dales. There were plenty of footpaths nearby but as we had a car, we visited various places further away, such as Malham Cove, Aysgarth Falls, the Ingleborough Waterfalls Trail and also Whernside and Pen y Ghent. There is a pub - Black Lane Ends Tavern - within walking distance (takes about 35 mins) but be warned, some of the walk is uphill! We also went to another local pub in Cross Hills - The Dog & Gun. This is a little further but there is a local taxi firm that are quite happy to come and pick you up and the pub will call a taxi for your return journey if you ask them. There are various other restaurants in Cross Hills but we were quite happy for a pub meal - I’m sure Jo and Ian would be able to recommend other places. Jo and Ian were excellent hosts and we can’t wait to visit again. Thank you for a wonderful stay and wish you every success for the future.

The property

Cowling 1.8 miles.

This beautiful, detached, stone-built stable conversion is set in the grounds of a 375-year old listed farmhouse in scenic countryside, just a mile from Cowling and eight miles from the market town of Skipton.

A recent conversion, this first-class cottage is beautifully appointed throughout, creating a lovely, romantic retreat, ideal for couples looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and discover the beauty of this outstanding area.

Situated solely over the ground floor, this lovely cottage offers an open plan living space with a cosy sitting area with woodburning stove, a dining area and a modern, well-equipped kitchen.

After a day of adventure, here you can ease into your evening; get the woodburning stove roaring and sink into the sumptuous sofa before finding a good film.

The main bedroom is spacious and features a king-size Victorian brass bedstead, a romantic freestanding bath and a superb en-suite facility with rainfall shower and modern mood lighting.

Stylish throughout, every care has been taken by the owners to provide a truly outstanding holiday home.

With almost too many features to mention, the sumptuous furnishings, the oak floor, the handmade windows and doors, the lovely cathedral ceiling, old beams and much, much more, which all help to make your stay a truly memorable one.

Outside, a spacious patio area and dry stone walling provide the backdrop for a luxurious hot tub, where guests can sit and enjoy the views of the chickens, sheep and cows in the surrounding areas, whilst relaxing after a hard day’s walking in the scenic countryside which occupies all sides of this premier cottage.

Cowling village provides a local pub and the nearby towns and villages provide good eateries and are well worth a visit, including Skipton, Ilkley and ancient Bolton Abbey, while glorious Malham and Grassington offer beautiful, limestone scenery just a short drive away.

For the more energetic, the bike riding and walking opportunities to be found in the surrounding area are excellent.

Beckside Cottage is a wonderful romantic retreat for discovering all that the Dales has to offer.

About the location

COWLING

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.
