The property

Long Preston 2.4 mile.

Smithy Cottage is a beautifully appointed country cottage, located in the picture-perfect village of Wigglesworth.

Sitting peacefully in the magnificent Yorkshire Dales, this delightful dwelling makes a great base for your next rural retreat whether you're a family of four or two couples.

Step into the airy open-plan living space after an afternoon stroll through the countryside and kick off your mud splattered boots, before wandering over to the sitting space and throwing a log on the woodburning stove and settling on the sofas to enjoy some quality time with your nearest and dearest.

Spend some time in the stunning farmhouse style kitchen with attractive worktops and pretty oak units, where you can discover a plethora of useful utensils and well-thought-out appliances to help you whip up a marvellous dinner for the group or create some tasty treats with the children as you enjoy an afternoon of home baking.

Open up the stable door and step out into the enclosed garden for some alfresco dining at the outdoor seating area and bask in the sunshine during those warm summer months.

The ground floor is also home to a convenient cloakroom with a basin and WC.

Venture up the imperial staircase to the right of the first floor and be greeted by a stylish yet peaceful shower room and the first of the bedrooms, home to a spacious double bed and en-suite shower room so that you can start your day off right with a refreshing wash.

Across the way lies a super-king-size bedroom that can be transformed into two singles upon request for flexible sleeping arrangements; this room boasts a beautiful barn window filling the room with natural light, making this a tranquil place to rest your head at the end of the day.

Jump in the car and enjoy a scenic drive to Gisburn Forest where you can embark on an enchanting woodland walk, or head into Skipton to explore the picturesque Waterfalls of Janet's Foss and Gordale Scar before stopping at Malham Cove to admire the incredible rock formation and magnificent views.

Enjoy a family day out to Bowland Wild Boar Park to feed the friendly animals or watch as the children play in the park and ride in the farmer's tractor before heading back to the comfort of your holiday home.

For an unforgettable adventure in the Yorkshire Dales, be sure to stay at Smithy Cottage.

About the location


Settle 4 miles; Malham 4 miles; Skipton 12 miles.

Long Preston is an attractive Yorkshire Dales village in Ribblesdale, twelve miles from Skipton (popularly known as the 'Gateway to the Dales'), four miles from Settle. To the north, the landscape rises to the fells, moors and picturesque valleys of the Dales; to the south are the wetlands of the Ribble Valley which, in turn, sweep upward to the magnificent wilderness of Bowland. The village benefits from several large, tree lined, village greens, with footpaths leading direct to the surrounding hills, and it also boasts two excellent pubs with first rate cuisine. The railway station on the edge of the village provides access to the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway line which crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Nearby Settle is a bustling market town with a weekly market, the centre being dominated by the Shambles, an historic 3-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool.
