  • "Fabulous is the best word to describe this 5 star accommodation."

    It was beautifully decorated throughout and was in an excellent location for walking in the Dales. We would love to come back in the summer to take advantage of the lovely garden.

    Plenty of utensils in the very modern kitchen. Bed was very comfy and nice large bath for long soaks and nice fluffy towels. It was in a lovely village right across from a good country pub that does great food. We would have a left comments at the cottage but there wasn't a guest book to complete and it's always nice to read other comments and suggestions from other guests. Also there were no instructions for some of the items such as the dishwasher, heating (although the property was nice and warm), the amazon speaker. However we did manage to work these out however.

    It is beautifully furnished and finished, with everything we needed. The kitchen has more than enough crockery and cutlery with great appliances made cooking easy. The beds are comfortable and having two en-suite bathrooms is a bonus. Parking is secure and off road and the outside courtyard is a genuine sun trap! We really enjoyed coming back to the cottage each evening. In terms of location, there are lots of lovely walks from the front door - and there's a pub which does food across the road! We really couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you!!

The property

Resting in the delightful hamlet of Starbotton, halfway between Kettlewell and Buckden, is this lovely stone-built house, Wayside Cottage.

The traditional exterior is home to tasteful furnishings with a contemporary twist; Wayside Cottage additionally boasts amazing views of the surrounding hills of Wharfedale and makes for a lovely setting for a group of four.

An in-demand off-road space greets you on arrival, after parking up be sure to take in your stunning rural location and those charming views of Starbotton.

Wayside Cottage’s interior has been finished to a very high standard whilst still preserving its original features and you will notice this as you enter the sitting room, with its exposed beams and fireplace accompanied by plush leather seating, a large TV and a woodburning stove.

Continue through to an impressive, bespoke kitchen; a space showcasing contemporary fittings and a plethora of appliances for you to make delicious dishes with.

After rustling up a lovely meal, enjoy it at the nearby dining table; the table rests in a bright and airy space with a skylight allowing the passage of light to fall directly on it, making for a fabulous dining and socialising venue. The dining area features bi-folding doors that open out to an additional secluded outdoor dining spot on the sunny patio; why not dine alfresco amongst those spectacular views?

After dinner, head upstairs to find two inviting double bedrooms, both showcase vaulted ceilings adorned with exposed oak beams, giving them a rustic feel, whilst also providing you with ample storage for your things. Both rooms also feature exceptional en-suites, one boasts a double walk-in shower and the other will spoil you with a separate bath and shower.

Being in the picturesque village of Starbotton means you have the fabulous Fox & Hounds Inn situated across the road from the property, for those evenings when you don’t feel like cooking; additionally you can find a wealth of circular walking trails leading from Wayside Cottage throughout upper Wharfedale, including easy access to Buckden Pike, Great Whernside and The Dales Way.

The villages of Kettlewell and Buckden are less than two miles away and host the rest of your amenities, including a selection of cafes, traditional inns and village shops.

For a day immersed in culture, make your way to Hawes and visit its galleries, from Stacey Moore to the Chapel Gallery, learn of the National Park’s history at the Dales Countryside Museum and enjoy a quirky tour around the Wensleydale Creamery Visitor Centre.

Spend the day in Skipton where fantastic attractions for all the family await, including the fantastic Raven Tree Top Adventure, the green space of Aireville Park where you can relish an idyllic picnic, and the historic Skipton Castle.

There is so much more to see and do in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, why not visit Malham and navigate the intriguing Malham Cove or visit Bolton Abbey where the perfect family day out awaits.

Create amazing memories with your loved ones from the charming setting of Wayside Cottage.

About the location

STARBOTTON

Kettlewell & Buckden 2 miles; Grassington 12 miles.

Nestling in the Upper Wharfedale Valley between Kettlewell and Buckden, this idyllic National Park village 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 nearby, good access to Buckden Pike and gentle walks along the riverbanks. The village itself comprises a cluster of stone-built cottages and houses with, at its centre, the wonderful 'Fox and Hounds' pub serving great ales and fine food. No surprise that the hit movie 'Calendar Girls' was filmed nearby and in other locations throughout the area. An excellent base for enjoying the famous dales, historic market towns, caves and waterfalls of this magical area.
