  • "Lovely cottage in great location for walking with the dog"

    Reviewed by PaulJul 2022

  • "A delightful property in a lovely location."

    The village centre is within easy walking distance as is the Dales way and river Wharfe. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard and although we booked in July, I would imagine that it would just as cosy in the winter months. Very friendly and helpful owners, who live close by. We would highly recommend and would defiantly book again.

    location is great with just a small walk to the local co-op, addingham is a lovely village with lots of footpaths to explore. the only thing I would like to point out is that there is no furniture in the small yard at the back which is overlooked by the cottage next door so not private. never the less a great place to stay.

  • "What a wonderfully relaxing couple of weeks in beautiful Beacon Cottage."

    A fabulous little cottage that was the perfect haven. Just looking out of the windows at the sheep in the field directly opposite made all stress disappear. Great location, walking distance to local pubs. Had some lovely meals in the dog friendly Swan pub. Comfy beds, warm and cosy, added bonus of an open fire. A lovely welcome pack of cake, tea and coffee was such a lovely touch. The owner was responsive to any queries we had and couldn’t of been of been more helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending Beacon Cottage.

  • "There is a little bit of confusion as to which is "Beacon Cottage", as the property only has a No."

    on the door and, in fact, the property is right at the start of "High Mill Lane", very close to it's junction with the B6160. Can't really complain about Heating provision, as their was full central heating (not actual needed this May) and provision to light a Log fire. Just in between, it would have been useful to have a "local" heat source, such as a blower heater, for the odd evening when it did go a bit cooler, particularly as the Cottage has very substantial stone walls. Thank-you for the Cake and Biscuits which were both very nice and a lovely setting here in Addingham.

Plus, several pub's. Within a 10 mins drive, there were 2 fairly big market towns, plus drives up the Moors, Dales, steam railway, and an Abbey. What more could you want? Very happy.

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.
