  • "Excellent little cottage."

    Good parking facilities, well equipped and for a small cottage, quite spacious. Unfortunately the tin opener didn't work./ A normal tin opener would be preferable to those that open the tin on the side. Also a casserole dish with a lid would be useful. Other than that it was perfect.

    It is superbly and generously equipped. The wifi is fast and reliable. I really appreciated the firm, comfy bed and the black out blinds; I slept soundly each night. The rear of the cottage backs onto open fields and the wide range of birds visiting the feeders on the patio were a delight. You can walk directly from the house. The location is great for a wide range of places to visit, both rural and urban. It is peaceful and quiet with amazing stars on clear nights. The owner was welcoming (via email/text), prompt, responsive and very helpful. I highly recommend a holiday at Bridleway Cottage; you will not be disappointed. I'm looking forward to returning.

  • "A really lovely peaceful cottage in the middle of the countryside."

    A warm and welcoming interior that is decked out to feel as if it’s a home away from home. The photo’s don’t necessarily do the cottage justice. The kitchen has everything you would need, the lounge has lovely cosy seats, throws and Netflix on hand to escape. Under heated floor and a fire should you need the heat to take the edge of after being outside all day and a memory foam comfortable bed to sleep on. On the patio to the rear of the patio hangs a bird feeder, which can be watched from the armchairs in the lounge, losing sense of time watching the many birds visit. Such a good location being not far from ingleton and the waterfall walk and the base of Ingleborough. We visited Wensleydale, Skipton and Malham Cove which are all beautiful places close by. We would definitely recommend this cottage for a romantic, peaceful, relaxing time away and will definitely be back again next year.

The property

This delightful, stone-built semi-detached cottage sits amongst quiet countryside in the small hamlet above Wray, two miles from Low Bentham, making an ideal romantic retreat for those wishing to enjoy the great outdoors.

There is an open plan living area with modern furnishings, a stylish, well-equipped kitchen with views of Ingleborough and a woodburner to settle beside on frosty nights.

The bedroom has a good quality king-size bed with a memory foam mattress, integrated TV and ample storage, whilst the bathroom has a steel bath, power shower, a heated towel rail and contemporary fixtures.

Don't forget the superfast broadband to help with your stay or also to download photos whilst you're actually away.

Outside, a secluded rear garden, which is accessed from the living area through the patio doors, is an ideal place to enjoy the wildlife, the afternoon/evening sun and a little alfresco dining.

Cycling is available either on the adjacent National Cycle Route 69, or for mountain bikers, directly down the bridleway which leads from the property.

Nearby is a popular walking route that covers the dramatic landscape of Malham Cove, Gordale Scar, Janet's Foss Waterfall and Malham Tarn - Britain's highest lake.

Travel through varied terrain and rugged landscapes.

A less strenuous route is from Malham Village to Janet's Foss..

To the north, the landscape rises to the fells, moors and picturesque valleys of the Dales, while to the south are the wetlands of the Ribble Valley, sweeping upward to the magnificent wilderness of The Forest of Bowland, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For golfers, there is a selection of wonderful courses nearby, the closest being in High Bentham.

Ingleton is just a little further, offering a collection of shops and traditional old pubs huddled around its quaint square, along with an open air, heated swimming pool available during the summer.

The bustling market town of Settle is nearby with its weekly market, or for a great day out, take a tour along the renowned Settle-Carlisle Railway line, which steams through some of the most inspiring upland scenery in the country, and the nearby Wennington Railway Station is on the Leeds-Morecambe line.

This cosy cottage provides all the ingredients for a romantic break.
