  • “Perfect Cottage - Truly in the country”

    We stayed for a week whilst visiting family in the UK and doing some walking. The cottage is ideally located for access to main roads and towns, yet close enough to the dales and excellent walking country. The cottage is fantastically equipped just as you would if it was your own home. It has an Aga which is great fun to cook on, the whole cottage was spotless, with modern ‘everything’. Genuinely couldn’t fault it. There are lots of pubs around and very easy to pick up supplies at any of ...

    We stayed for a week whilst visiting family in the UK and doing some walking. The cottage is ideally located for access to main roads and towns, yet close enough to the dales and excellent walking country. The cottage is fantastically equipped just as you would if it was your own home. It has an Aga which is great fun to cook on, the whole cottage was spotless, with modern ‘everything’. Genuinely couldn’t fault it. There are lots of pubs around and very easy to pick up supplies at any of the towns and villages around the area. The cottage is part of a very nice mill conversion, up a quiet lane alongside the river, with lovely grounds and immediate access to the public footpaths to Malham & Airton. Definitely recommend it - I can’t say enough to praise the cottage and it’s quiet backwater location.

The property

An exclusive and imaginative conversion of Scalegill Mill, originally an historic cotton mill dating back to 1792, with even earlier origins; this delightful stone-built, end-terrace cottage is situated on the banks of the River Aire between the Malhamdale villages of Kirkby Malham and Hanlith.

Styled and furnished by the current owners, this Malhamdale cottage provides a first-class holiday retreat alongside the river and the Pennine Way, perfect for small groups of friends and family exploring this beautiful location.

This Malhamdale cottage offers two delightful bedrooms and a first-class shower room with a marble worktop.

There is a lovely kitchen with a dining area featuring cream, hand-painted wall units and contrasting granite worktop surfaces, a Belfast sink and an AGA, as well as beautiful multi-coloured slate flooring.

Relax and unwind after a day exploring the area in the cosy sitting room, with its roaring open fire and French doors leading out into a shared courtyard.

There is a stone-flagged patio set above the river and the waterfall, an ideal spot for sitting out and enjoying the fabulous views, as you bask in the warm summer sunshine.

This Malhamdale cottage is set amongst several acres of communal gardens, why not take a stroll through the formal grounds and around the original Mill pond, before exploring the small woodland.

Possibly one of the prettiest walks in the Yorkshire Dales, a ten minute walk down the river brings you to Malham itself.

This Malhamdale cottage is centrally located in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, with wonderful walks leading straight from the doorstep.

Venture through Malham Tarn, along the shores of Malham Cove and discover Janet’s Foss, a spectacular waterfall.

This superb Malhamdale cottage, full of character and charm, is the perfect base for a memorable holiday exploring the Yorkshire Dales!

About the location

KIRKBY MALHAM

Settle 9 miles; Skipton 10 miles.

The picturesque Dales village of Kirkby Malham is situated in beautiful Malhamdale amidst superb open limestone countryside. The village is made up of the Parish Church, a lovely old village pub, a scattering of dwellings and farmsteads. Kirkby Malham is a great starting point for walkers, with a route along the Pennine Way down to the river and a beautiful walk to Malham, its more famous cousin. More energetic walkers should explore Calton over Calton Moor to Weets Top and Gordale, or head eastwards towards Hetton. Nearby, Malham is a magnet for visitors to the Dales who flock to see Malham Cove, one of Britain's most impressive natural features. The Cove consists of a natural cavern or 'amphitheatre' of limestone rock, stretching 75 metres in height and 300 metres around the perimeter. A steep walk up man-made steps is rewarded with a superb view across the moors and limestone pavements to Malham Tarn, the Pennines' highest natural lake. Kirkby Malham is a wonderful central location with Skipton, Settle, Grassington all within easy reach of this Yorkshire Dales village.
