    “We had a lovely short break at Anglers Cottage, Kilnsey.”


    The person I spoke to when we booked the house was friendly and helpful. The pre arrival information sent by the owner was really useful and the caretaker was friendly and came over straight away to help us work out the heating. The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped with plenty of room for all of us to spread out (7 + a baby). The house is fun and quirky with wooden beams a double staircase and plenty of nooks and crannies. I loved the large dining room in addition to the large kitchen. A perfect place for a birthday get together, there’s even a piano ( albeit out of tune which added to the atmosphere). There are some lovely walks virtually on the doorstep and Malham and Skipton were easy to reach by car for supplies and further sightseeing. The only things to consider if you have small children or dogs are the very busy road right outside the front door, the tight parking spaces (although parking at the pub next door was not a problem) and the tiny outdoor space. However we were aware of these issues when we booked and all the good points outweighed these issues for us.

The property

An outstanding stone-built, semi-detached cottage and former coaching inn, located in the heart of the small village of Kilnsey, just four miles from Grassington in beautiful Wharfedale.

Nestled in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales, the 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.

The main bedroom with a super king-size bed sits next to the modern bathroom and boasts fabulous views of the beautiful surrounding countryside.

A twin with pull-out bed provides a great room for little ones, whilst a further three doubles, all with good views, ensure comfortable accommodation for all.

Outside is a small patio area with furniture, and just a stone’s throw away is Kilnsey Park, offering a variety of activities with fly fishing, friendly farm animals and pony trekking.

Wonderful fell and riverside walks trail from the doorstep, along with cycle paths, and of course the opportunity to ride the 2014 Tour de France route.

Grassington can be reached within a short drive, with its quaint independent shops, pubs, restaurants, cafes and charming cobblestone square where each year, the celebrated Dickensian Festival takes place.

A fabulous cottage, perfect for that family to get together, whatever the time of year.

About the location


Kettlewell 3 miles; Grassington 4 miles.

Kilnsey is a small village in Wharfedale, lying between the villages of Grassington and Kettlewell, near Arncliffe and just across the River Wharfe from Conistone. The most notable feature of Kilnsey is the large limestone cliff of Kilnsey Crag, overlooking the road and the River Wharfe from the west. This dramatic outcrop stands around 170 feet high, with an overhang of 40 feet. West from Kilnsey, towards Malham Tarn runs the historic Mastiles Lane, originally a Roman marching road and later an important drovers way leading to Fountains Abbey, now offering a superb track for walkers and cyclists. Kilnsey Angling Club is based here, and you can purchase a day ticket to enjoy trout fishing in a peaceful setting on the River Wharfe. Home to Kilnsey Park, offering a variety of leisure activities and excellent cuisine, the park also provides fly fishing opportunities on its well-stocked lakes, fun for the children with friendly farm animals and pony trekking, the chance to see the UK’s rarest orchid, or why not simply relax amidst the stunning scenery and watch red squirrels play? Down dale is Bolton Abbey, with its pretty ruins, priory, limestone stepping-stones and well-loved Strid Walk. A little further is the elegant town of Ilkley, bordered by the famous Ilkley Moor. Up dale are Kettlewell and Buckden, boasting spectacularly beautiful limestone scenery. Kilnsey offers a well-located base for your Yorkshire dales adventure.
