  • “This cottage was so much more than listed.”

    Very clean, warm and comfortable! Had everything we needed and more. Nothing was to much trouble from the owners who were such nice people! When we arrived they had been over to the cottage to pop the heating and lights on. We loved the little touches they had done, started our break with a big smile!

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 with a music system and waterfall feature, where guests can sit and enjoy the views of the chickens, sheep and cows in the surrounding areas,also feel free to feed the alpacas if you wish, (owner will provide seeds for this purpose) 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.
