  • “This cottage is a real credit to both Sykes and the cottage owners.”

    It is clean, very well equipped, the beds are super comfy, the log burner is brilliant as is the Smart TV and WIFI. Parking can be irritating, but not once you get used to it. Will book again!!

The property

This charming mid-terrace dwelling can be found tucked away in the picturesque village of Low Bentham, offering a wonderful base for touring North Yorkshire and Lake District.

This former mill worker’s cottage offers a characterful setting for your countryside break with your partner or small family.

After admiring the surrounding views of Yorkshire from the doorstep of the cottage, be welcomed into the open-plan living room, where you will be delighted by the real home-from-home ambiance with a touch of contemporary styling and original features including exposed beams and stonework.

Look forward to getting cosy in front of the woodburning stove during a crisp winter’s evening before tuning into the TV, ensuring a tranquil retreat for a relaxing evening in.

Beyond here is the stylish kitchen, where the handmade units house quality appliances, allowing you and your loved ones to rustle up delicious evening meals or pack up a picnic for your next day’s adventure.

If the weather is on your side, step outside to the south-facing rear garden, which is the perfect suntrap or simply open the stable door to let the outside in.

Once the sun has set, make your way to the first floor to retire to one of the well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a single bedroom.

Each bedroom enjoys an idyllic interior design and ample storage and space for your week-long belongings.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, head into the town of Bentham where you will find a couple of shops for picking up the essentials, as well as a number of pubs serving food.

For those feeling active, venture to the Yorkshire Dales, where you can look forward to discovering the natural attractions of Malham Cove, Aysgarth Falls, Ingleton Waterfalls and the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks (Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent and Whernside) as you explore miles of paths upon this National Park.

This cottage is nestled within North Yorkshire but borders Lancashire and Cumbria which makes it the perfect base for exploring other areas.

To the North there are the Southern Lakes, Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside.

To the West you reach the coastline, where you will find the sandy beach at Morecambe or picturesque coastal areas of Silverdale and Arnside or brush up on the history by spending time within the city of Lancaster.

5 Bank Cottage is a wonderful hideaway to this part of Yorkshire.

About the location


Ingleton 3.5 miles; Kirkby Lonsdale 8.4 miles; Morecambe 16.8 miles

Positioned just west of the Yorkshire Dales, on the northern fringes of the Forest of Bowland, this lovely town is split into High Bentham and Low Bentham, with the babbling River Wenning running between the two. The town boasts an annual agricultural show, with handicraft, horticulture and livestock competitions, which dates back to the 19th century. In addition to this is the annual Carnival and funfair, entertaining a thriving community with workshops, music and many fundraising events. High Bentham has an array of public houses and eateries to choose from, and the railway station sits on the Leeds to Morecambe line. For walking enthusiasts, there are colour coded circular trails of different lengths and capabilities, right on the doorstep. The neighbouring village of Ingleton offers some wonderful caves and tumbling waterwalls, along with a year-round climbing wall and a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. Enjoy a trip out to Morecambe Bay with your bucket and spade, where you can fly your kites, build sandcastles or simply take a stroll along the promenade. For more independent shops and restaurants, the town of Kirkby-Lonsdale is only a short drive away, with access to Ruskin's View. Take the footpath from the churchyard at St. Mary's Church and follow the trail high about the River Lune, where you can marvel at a panorama of the Lune Valley and Underley Hall. A wonderful location for exploring National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North West coastline.
