    “Great holiday, fantastic cottage.”

    Only minor grumble would be the log burner which might need swept. Very smoky and not very hot

The property

A truly remarkable cottage to base an escape to the countryside of West Yorkshire, the characterful cottage of 12 The Rookery makes a beautiful bolthole at any time of year.

A stone-built terraced cottage tucked away in the village of Addingham, it offers an ultimate relaxing escape for couples or families of three seeking to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park and beyond.

Step over the cobbled streets and through the front door of this beautiful cottage to be welcomed in by the kitchen/diner, combining an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional style, here you can enjoy preparing homemade meals together, the impressive gas range cooker assisting in all your self-catering requirements, with the dining table at the centre of the room making a lovely spot to enjoy a relaxing evening of card games and good company.

To the rear of the property rests the snug sitting room, with a woodburning stove bringing a romantic aura to the room, settle down to watch a favourite film on the television, or carry your conversations out to the private courtyard to make the most of the evening sun.

Take the staircase to the first floor where you will find both a king-size and a single bedroom, offering a flexible sleeping arrangement for groups of two to three, each room offers an elegant interior and benefits from ample storage space for all of your personal belongings.

Begin each day right with a refreshing rinse in the stylish shower room, before heading out to explore the wonders that Addingham has to offer.

The historic village makes a beautiful base for a countryside escape, sitting in the valley of the River Wharfe, you can find plenty of scenic picnic spots, with plenty of shops to choose from to pick up some delicious treats, or choose to indulge in a delicious pub lunch, with a wide selection of eateries to choose from just a stone's throw away from the cottage.

Spend a day on the village's golf course for the ultimate relaxing experience, or take a trip to Bolton Abbey, one of the most spectacular places in the area for its breathtaking scenery, with a visit to the 'Strid' being a must for its mystical woodlands and an idyllic experience like no other.

Visit the stunning town of Harrogate, its quaint streets lined with independent shops to while away the hours in with the Montpellier Quarter being the perfect place to uncover its heritage as a spa resort where you can find the Royal Pump Room Museum and traditional Turkish Baths.

In reach of Ilkley, Skipton, Grassington and many more spectacular places, 12 The Rookery is a true marvel of a holiday cottage from which to explore Yorkshire.

About the location


Bolton Abbey 3 miles; Ilkley 3 miles; Skipton 4 miles.

The historic village of Addingham nestles in the valley of the River Wharfe between Ilkley and Skipton, just 3 miles from the Dales National Park at Bolton Abbey. In the Doomsday Book, Addingham is referred to as 'Ediham', which probably meant 'Home of Edi', the Earl Edwin of Bolton Abbey. A corn mill was mentioned in 1315, near where High Mill is today, and the weir across the river is one of the oldest medieval structures in the village. Today's village is a thriving, small community with several good pubs serving fine ale and excellent food, a scattering of small shops and a delightful golf course surrounded by breathtaking countryside. Nearby Bolton Abbey is one of the region's most scenic areas and the walk along the river to the 'Strid' is a must. The Victorian Spa town of Ilkley is worth a visit, with its wide streets, world-famous Box Tree Restaurant and Bettys Tea Rooms, while Ilkley Moor is the subject of Yorkshire's unofficial anthem “On Ilkla Moor Baht at”. Grassington and Malham are within reach, plus Skipton is also close by with its ancient castle, beautiful old parish church, colourful street market, canal trips and Embsay Steam Railway.
