The property

Resting at the centre of the delightful village of Cowling, with Cross Hills within easy reach for all of the amenities needed on a self-catered stay, Hemingway Cottage is perfectly placed for an escape to rural North Yorkshire.

A charming terraced cottage boasting a homely interior and a desirable position, this property is best suited to couples or families seeking a scenic adventure.

Park up on the private road behind the property and make your way inside, sitting on the main road through the village, adjacent to a welcoming pub, it makes a prime location for exploring the local area.

Get comfy within the plush seating arrangement in the living/dining room, gathered around the warmth of the electric fire, with an accompanying TV with Sky letting you pick a family-favourite film for your relaxing evenings in.

To the rear of the cottage sits the kitchen, equipped with a good range of appliances and even a washing machine to assist on longer stays to explore the depths of the Yorkshire Dales; this cottage has all you could need for a week-long stay.

Step out the back door and into your own private garden, gravelled and paved, with plenty of space for your pup to play as you sip on a refreshing beverage beneath the sun.

Move up the staircase to the first floor to find the two well-presented bedrooms, made up of a king-size and a double room best suited to children or one adult.

Each room boasts ample storage space and homely decor, as well as benefiting from being served from the sparkling family bathroom.

Enjoy the local area with its good host of amenities and eateries, with a pub, restaurant, small convenience store and pizza takeaway all within Cowling.

There is a park with play area and wonderful walking routes alongside Ickornshaw Beck and to Wainman’s Pinnacle; it makes a fabulous holiday base at any time of the year.

Venture further out into the village of Cross Hills to find even more eateries and facilities to take your pick from as well as independent stores and food shops.

Skipton can be reached slightly further on; known as the "Gateway to the Dales", here you can observe its 11th century castle, roam the Parcevall Hall Gardens, explore by horseback at the Draughton Riding Centre or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll around the market town; the Millennium Walk route makes its way around many of the town's main attractions so you're sure to find plenty here worth exploring.

Spend a day in the Yorkshire Dales National Park for a scenic experience like no other.

Ramble the 860 square miles of remarkable vistas, the Three Peaks worth tackling if you're an avid adventurer, while there are plenty of other wonders worth exploring such as the caves of Gaping Gill, the tranquil waters of Hardraw Force, Aysgarth Falls and so much more.

About the location


Skipton 7 miles.

The ancient village of Cowling sits across a hillside in the Pennine Hills, just seven miles from the market town of Skipton. A thriving village, built along a main high street with stone-built, terraced houses set alongside the mills of a bygone age. The village was once sparsely populated, the bulk of the population living in Ickornshaw and Middleton, and before that on Cowling Hill, close to water sources they depended on, and the main roads of the day - now used as back roads by locals to avoid the modern day traffic. In the early days, agriculture was the main occupation, with corn being grown and ground within the village. When canal transport boomed, corn became cheaper to buy from elsewhere and so the mills in Cowling turned from grinding corn to weaving during the Industrial Revolution. The village inn was once part of a farmhouse on Cowling Hill, but was sold as changes to the structure of the village began. The son of the landlord later opened the Bay Horse Hotel on the new road, which still stands as a main feature of village life. The nearby Quaker village of Lothersdale was, at one time, home to Charlotte Bronte who modelled Gateshead Hall in Jane Eyre on Stone Gappe House where she was governess. Today many visitors passing through the village are walkers, on their way along the Pennine Way on the stretch from Cowling to Gargrave. There's the large retail outlet of Boundary Mills, just six miles away, a must for lovers of shoping, and Skipton, known as 'The Gateway to the Dales' is nearby. Skipton is a lovely old market town with much to interest the enthusiastic visitor, boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. In 2008 the Academy of Urbanism voted Skipton High Street the best shopping spot in Britain, and The Copper Dragon Brewery, opened in 2002 is highly rated in the CAMRA listings. Steam railways with regular excursions are available at Embsay and Bolton Abbey, and the Leeds to Liverpool Canal passes through Skipton with the one mile long Foulridge Tunnel and the 5-rise locks at Bingley within a short distance away. In 2014 the area hosted the first leg of the Tour De France, bringing in many visitors from far and wide to this wonderful area.
