    “The Old Mistal was great for our family stay, really comfortable beds, lovely big bathroom and everything you could need in the kitchen.”

    It was warm and cosy even on really chilly days and the big kitchen table was well used for gathering round.

    It was warm and cosy even on really chilly days and the big kitchen table was well used for gathering round. We took my elderly parents who struggled with the steps outside, although it does state not suitable for wheelchairs, could maybe add or people with poor mobility. The owners were very pleasant and helpful.

The property

This delightful cottage is a former byre which has been beautifully converted into a delightful home and is close to the market town of Otley.

This lovely cottage is the perfect choice for anyone wishing to explore the scenic county of Yorkshire.

Cleverly retaining the original features together with 21st century living, this delightful cottage has pleasant views of the surrounding countryside.

The accommodation is all on one level with an enormous master bedroom with en-suite, and together with three further bedrooms, this delightful cottage offers a great choice of accommodation for everyone.

The superb dining kitchen is a social haven designed for dinner parties, informal meals or just relaxing with a glass of wine, a good book and the crackle of the multi-fuel stove.

For complete relaxation, you can move into the comfortable sitting room which has a woodburner where you can curl up with a good book and a cup of coffee.

The private and enclosed garden at the cottage has a gazebo complete with dining table and chairs, just perfect for alfresco dining.

About the location


Bolton Abbey 8 miles; Harrogate 8 miles.

The historical market town of Otley lies on the boundary between North and West Yorkshire and is situated in the beautiful countryside of Lower Wharfedale, just eight miles from Harrogate. Steeped in history, Otley has much to interest the visitor including many events throughout the year to attract all the family. Otley has a street market three times a week, a monthly Farmers’ Market, a wide range of specialist shops, award-winning bakeries and butchers, as well as high street chains and three supermarkets. The many traditional pubs and inns offer good food and a range of beers. Along the River Wharfe, which runs through the heart of the town, is the attractive Riverside Park, offering beautiful walks, whilst the wooded hillside, rocks and moorland of Chevin Forest Park provide spectacular views over the town and the glorious surrounding countryside. Adding to its charm, Otley has its own Bellman who calls out the town’s news and events! Nearby Bolton Abbey is one of the region's most scenic areas and the walk along the river to the 'Strid' is a must. Ilkley and Harrogate have a splendid selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés, including Bettys Tea rooms, without doubt the finest tea shop in Yorkshire. Wharfedale is the perfect base for exploring this part of Yorkshire.
