A wonderful, three-storey, semi-detached barn conversion dating back to 1871, set amongst wonderful, wild and rugged Dales' countryside.
Featured in the Daily Mirror's Top 20 Farm Visits, this is a real haven of peace and tranquillity, a great opportunity to get away from it all and enjoy country living at its finest.
Sympathetically converted, the cottage, which has been awarded a gold star by the Green Tourism Business, is one of our premier cottages in the Yorkshire Dales area and provides luxurious accommodation in a location offering great opportunities to do something a little bit out of the ordinary in this wonderful wildlife haven.
Set out over three floors, the accommodation offers a delightful blend of original features, original ceiling beams with exposed stone work and lovely modern furnishings.
Boasting a biomass heating system and solar power, the accommodation is accessed from the ground floor lobby area with heated recycled tile flooring, cloakroom, washing and storage area, which leads to a winding stone staircase.
Part way up the stairs is a viewing window, specifically located to watch the chickens roosting in the attached barn, as well as swallows nesting and fledging through the Spring and Summer.
The first floor living area is a real delight, with a large glass door leading into a cosy sitting area with woodburner and access to a well-equipped kitchen.
A lovely twin bedroom adjoins the sitting room and a modern en-suite bathroom, all adding further luxury to this outstanding holiday home.
Black grouse can sometimes be seen gathering at the top of the hay meadow.
The second floor master bedroom, also with en-suite, is full of immense character and charm with exposed beams, an opening window with views up the dale and two modern Velux windows to bathe the room in a soft light, a king-size bed, feather and down filled duvets and pillows with soft, fluffy white towels.
With well-marked walking and biking trails on the doorstep, from one mile to 12 miles, this is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise.
The attached field centre, with WiFi, binoculars, a telescope and a selection of books, is a great place for spending time together.
Guests of all ages are welcome to enjoy an introductory tour of the farm, feed the farm’s free-range chickens and collect eggs for breakfast, as well as occasionally feeding the sheep and cattle and seeing the lambing and maybe a calving in the spring.
Homemade bread, eggs and Nethergill ‘ready meals’ made from Nethergill rare breed cattle and sheep can be purchased throughout your stay.
Fly fishing for brown trout is available in the nearby beck, and the cottage is licensed so you can purchase bottles of wine, beer and soft drinks from the owners, then relax in lovely surroundings.
Wildlife observation hides with feeding stations and portable canvas bird hides are available to hire and provide great ways to get up close to the wonderful wildlife in the area, and no light pollution means that on clear nights the conditions are perfect for stargazing.
This wonderful cottage provides a perfect rural retreat for those wishing to get away from it all and enjoy a break in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales.
Perfect for wildlife enthusiasts, walkers, cyclists, artists, eco-minded and those interested in all things environmental.
Just a short drive to a good selection of traditional old pubs and award-winning gastropubs, so why not ‘step off the world and revive for a
while’, enjoy the peace and quiet or treat the kids to a bit of outdoor living?
