The property

If you and your loved ones are seeking a beautifully-appointed property in one of the most picturesque locations within Yorkshire, look no further than Moss Side Retreat.

With its exceptional location, nestled between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Forest of Bowland AONB, this self-catering accommodation is perfect for avid ramblers, families, friends and those alike to temporarily call home.

After parking up on the spacious forecourt, take in the unfettered views of the surroundings before heading into the open-plan living room, which has been designed with a touch of opulence.

The exposed beams ceilings are a striking element to the room, as is the woodburning stove set within an original stone-exposed fireplace, wonderfully showcasing the history of the property.

Light up the fire and flick through the channels of the TV at the end of a bracing day, before the chef of the group makes the most of the quality appliances that await them in the kitchen area.

Home-cooked meals and sociable moments can be relished at the sleek dining table, which is backed by a beautiful exposed stone wall, again offering a sense of the history of this home.

Take the staircase to find the master suite, elegantly decorated to create a relaxing and welcoming space, complete with a plush super-king-size bed and two single sofa beds, should you wish to bring any additional guests along, yet the pièce de résistance is the view of the countryside surroundings.

Concluding the interior is the king-size double bedroom, complete with quality linens and its own TV, perfect for those lazy mornings in bed.

At Moss Side Farm, the garden has been designed to be an extension of the house itself, where you can spend sunny afternoons gathered around the outdoor table, whilst younger guests of the group play freely and safely on the spacious lawn.

If you can tear yourself away from this heavenly oasis, venture into the centre of Wigglesworth where you will find the Plough Hotel & Restaurant or venture slightly further afield to Long Preston, where there is a traditional pub and a village shop.

Alternatively, make your way to the market town of Settle, where you will find a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool, whilst Skipton is home to even more amenities and an ancient castle, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market to explore.

Avid ramblers can don their walking boots and look forward to exploring the labyrinth of treks upon the Yorkshire Dales National Park with a variety of landscapes to enjoy, including rugged moorland, picturesque valleys and wooded areas, with the famous Three Peaks promising to be an interesting challenge.

Other landmarks that are well-worth a visit include the beautiful Stainforth Force, the White Scar Cave and the Clitheroe Castle Keep, whilst the Thornton Hall Country Park, Bolton Abbey and the Forbidden Corner all promise to be exceptional family-friendly days out.

With so much to look forward to, secure your stay at Moss Side Retreat for a memorable holiday in Yorkshire.

About the location


Settle 4 miles; Malham 4 miles; Skipton 12 miles.

Long Preston is an attractive Yorkshire Dales village in Ribblesdale, twelve miles from Skipton (popularly known as the 'Gateway to the Dales'), four miles from Settle. To the north, the landscape rises to the fells, moors and picturesque valleys of the Dales; to the south are the wetlands of the Ribble Valley which, in turn, sweep upward to the magnificent wilderness of Bowland. The village benefits from several large, tree lined, village greens, with footpaths leading direct to the surrounding hills, and it also boasts two excellent pubs with first rate cuisine. The railway station on the edge of the village provides access to the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway line which crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Nearby Settle is a bustling market town with a weekly market, the centre being dominated by the Shambles, an historic 3-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool.
