A delightful, 300-year old, stone-built terraced cottage, in the very heart of the pretty Dales village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale, home of the famous Three Peaks, 6 miles from Settle.
A delightful Three Peaks cottage, set across the road from one of the village's two traditional pubs, the cottage retains much original character, with wonderful beamed ceilings, a feature stone fireplace with warming woodburning stove, and three cosy bedrooms, creating a very special atmosphere which exudes olde worlde charm.
Outside this Three Peaks cottage, the spacious lawned garden is ideal for dining alfresco, and boasts a babbling brook and lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway line, which passes over the magnificent Ribblehead Viaduct, is just a 5 minute walk from this Three Peaks cottage, whilst the market towns of Settle and Skipton are nearby.
Various walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep on the Pennine Way and in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, while the more energetic visitor can 'clock in' at the village's Pen-y-Ghent cafe and take on the challenge of the Three Peaks walk!
A wonderful Three Peaks cottage for a holiday in the Dales.
