  • "Anglers Cottage is very well situated in lovely Wharfedale, close enough to amenities but remote enough to feel that you've got away from it all."

    It had the best equipped kitchen of all the cottages we've stayed in. The bedrooms were all comfortable and warm and we loved the log burner. The Tennants Arms is less than a minute's walk away and they were friendly and accommodating too. One, and one only, criticism would be the piano. We don't think you should include the piano in the cottage description unless it is repaired and tuned. Some of our party are players and were looking forward to using the piano. Unfortunately the instrument was so badly out of tune it was unplayable and to include it in the facilities is misleading. That said, a lovely 5 days, and a special thanks to Alina the caretaker.

  • "We had a wonderful family stay at Anglers Cottage."

    It was November and the cottage was always really warm with the added option of an open fire. The Cottage was spotless with everything we needed. Brilliant location with easy access to the dales. Would definitely recommend this property.

  • "Having enjoyed a stay here last year it was pleasing to see the property has been further improved with a lick of paint and better kitchen facilities."

    A very clean and comfortable property in a stunning location. The only criticism would be the woefully under powered shower. A property this size really should have a powerful stand alone shower.

  • "The in-house brochure needs minor updates e."

    G. WiFi password and details regarding where heating is in the kitchen (+ the local pub is no longer in open), otherwise we all had a really enjoyable and comfortable stay.

  • "The property was well equipped and comfortable although with a tired feel to parts of it."

    The disappointments were the parking and garden. There was only room for 1 car fully off road near the property, other people had to park in the nearby pub car park or up a side road behind the cottage. There is no garden. It is a narrow communal passage serving three cottages, including the Anglers Cottage. The patio table was right under the caretaker's window with not enough room for 6 let alone 10 people round it and the whole space was shared by oil tanks and fuel store. Not a place for end of day relaxation and no use as an outside space for children or pets. The front door opened directly onto a busy road so great care had be taken again with the same.

  • "Lovely position of very old and interesting cottage with lots of space."

    Surrounding area is beautiful and there is lots to do. Walking from the cottage is a bonus. Great to have Kilnsey Park down the road and the pub next door. Comfortable cottage for a large group with loads of space. Patio area at the back is disappointing and is also situated outside the caretakers door. There was a very large bag taking up a sizeable chunk of it when we stayed. Five good sized bedrooms, but no wash basins as listed and no toilet in one bathroom as listed. The front door opens straight on to a very fast road so great care must be taken with children. Appliances are dated (washing machine did not work when we stayed). Overall a good week at Anglers Cottage, but it does need an upgrade considering the cost.

The property

Thresfield 2.9 miles.

An outstanding stone-built, semi-detached cottage located in the small village of Kilnsey, near Thresfield.

Nestled in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, this property offers stylish accommodation amongst beautiful scenery, ideal for a large group to get together and enjoy country living at its very best.

Anglers Cottage showcases many features of a traditional Yorkshire property, with an old stone floor, original beams and charming window seat.

The farmhouse kitchen is spacious, well equipped and full of character, whilst the sitting room is cosy and warm, with lovely furnishings and a woodburning stove set in a feature fireplace.

The dining room provides a great place to gather for a meal together, or sit at the piano for a good old singsong, and it also serves as a snug where friends can relax away from the group.

Two separate staircases access the first floor, where five well-thought out bedrooms provide flexible sleeping arrangements and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

The property also boasts two bathrooms, one with a breathtaking freestanding bath so there is no shortage on space to freshen up for the day ahead.

Outside is a small patio area with furniture to enjoy your morning coffee in the sun.

Just a stones throw away is Kilnsey Park, offering a variety of activities with fly fishing, friendly farm animals and pony trekking, as well as a village pub for the nights you just don't feel like cooking.

You can access wonderful fell and riverside walks from the doorstep, along with cycle paths, and of course the opportunity for any keen cyclists to ride the 2014 Tour de France route.

Just a short drive away is the small village of Thresfield, Kettlewell and Buckden boasting spectacularly beautiful limestone scenery, or Grassington which one of the most charming villages in the Yorkshire Dales, where you will find traditional stone cottages, galleries, restaurants and shops, which are clustered around the cobbled market place, plus a monthly farmers' market provides a mouthwatering range of organic and homemade local produce.

A little further is Bolton Abbey or the elegant town of Ilkley, overlooked by the famous Ilkley Moor.

For a fabulous cottage, whatever time of the year, choose Anglers Cottage for your group getaway.
