  • “Beautifully situated, spacious, well equipped and furnished.”

    Heating easy to adjust to optimise temperature in various rooms.

    Heating easy to adjust to optimise temperature in various rooms. The multi fuel stove was already laid and a good supply of properly dry wood was on hand. The cottage is within a stone's throw of the village pub. Due to all space being taken up with diners, we were not allowed to stand indoors to drink what we purchased at the bar. However, we walked back to the cottage and took the glasses back the following day! Plenty of possibilities for short or more challenging walks.

Exuding character and charm through exposed stone walls and decorative beams, this picture-perfect holiday cottage offers a tranquil retreat for families or groups of up to six who seek a relaxing escape to the Yorkshire Dales.

Feel the warmth of this traditional country cottage, as you step inside the inviting snug and take two steps up to the pretty cream shaker-style kitchen, and discover a plethora of appliances to help you throughout your stay.

Rest and recuperate from a long morning stroll in the homely sitting room, as you place another log on the eye-catching woodburning stove and allow yourself to sink into one of the plush cream sofas that surround a contemporary flat-screen TV.

Continuing through the ground-floor, the dining room provides a convivial space to entertain your nearest and dearest, with the beautiful antique grandfather clock sure to strike up a conversation, whilst a handy cloakroom lies just a few steps away.

About the location


Grassington 10 miles; Settle 12 miles

Litton is a picturesque village of traditional historic stone-built dwellings and a characterful public house. This idyllic village makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale. The river Skirfare flows through Littondale, and is fed from the slopes of one of the Dales 3 Peaks, Pen-y-Ghent. The beauty of the classic limestone countryside, with silvery dry-stone walls and field barns, which are part of an ancient agricultural landscape is unique. Through flower-rich hay meadows you can access the river on stepping stones or by crossing the river by footbridge when the water is in spate and enjoy the riverside walk to Arncliffe where you can refresh yourself upon arrival at the Falcon Inn, where food is also available. Local becks and streams that contain very rarely visited, but immensely beautiful waterfalls and limestone gorges, with pools for wild swimming, are on your doorstep, with a plethora of quite rare flora and fauna and valley side woodland walks. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking and mountain biking areas in the Dales and can be enjoyed from your doorstep, also with quiet roads for road cycling within the heart of the National Park. Malham Tarn, Buckden, Hubberholme and Kettlewell are all within walking distance from the cottage on quiet, but well-defined footpaths. This is a truly excellent base from which to enjoy this very special area.
