The property

A fabulous, stone-built detached cottage, set by a lovely river in the small village of Oughtershaw, in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

A former reading room for the village school, this Oughtershaw cottage has been sympathetically renovated to provide first class holiday accommodation.

Set out mainly on the ground floor and finished to a high standard throughout, this Oughtershaw cottage combines modern furnishings and fittings with original features to provide a holiday home of real character and style.

The warm and rustic sitting room features an open double height ceiling with enclosed crossbeams, a staircase to a small mezzanine area, a lovely woodburning stove and French doors to the patio area.

A spacious kitchen with dining area, a delightful bathroom and two lovely bedrooms all ensure that guests have a memorable stay in this premier Dales location, plus outside there is a spacious private garden and a large parking area.

Set in a quiet rural village, this Oughtershaw cottage is perfect to get away from it all and enjoy Dales life at its very best.

A fabulous location, with wonderful walks from the doorstep and just a short drive to a good selection of traditional old pubs and award-winning gastropubs makes this a superb Oughtershaw cottage, whatever the time of year.

About the location


Buckden 4 miles; Hawes 6 miles.

Oughtershaw is in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A small hamlet located between its more famous neighbours of Buckden and Hawes, Oughtershaw shares the valley with the likes of Deepdale, Yockenthwaite and Hubberholme. This idyllic Yorkshire Dales hamlet makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale. Much of Upper Wharfedale is National Trust owned – an indication of the beauty of its classic countryside, with dry stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valleyside woodland. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking areas in the Dales, with The Dales Way passing right through the hamlet. Nearby Hawes is one of the most popular market towns in the Yorkshire Dales, home to the famous Wallace & Gromit Wensleydale cheese with its working factory, museum, visitor’s centre and restaurant. To the south lies Buckden, Kettlewell, where the Calendar Girls was filmed, and the not-to-be missed market towns of Grassington and Skipton.
