This peaceful cottage, located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, is the perfect retreat for families and their furry companions, offering a safe and comfortable haven for a memorable getaway. Nestled down a private lane in the village of Embsay with a fantastic woodland next door and a delightful country pub just a stone's throw away. Spend a day exploring the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway (0.2 miles), which offers a lovely journey through the stunning Dales countryside aboard a vintage steam train. Nearby, the historic Bolton Abbey estate boasts not only the picturesque ruins of Bolton Priory but also extensive grounds perfect for family picnics, walks, and riverside adventures (6 miles). And not forgetting Skipton, the "Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales", just 1 mile away boasting several independent shops, cafes, and restaurants.

As you step into this charming country cottage, you'll be greeted by the inviting open-plan living space, where rustic charm meets modern comfort. The heart of the home is bathed in natural light thanks to the patio doors that open out to the terrace. The lounge area is a haven of relaxation, with its bright and airy atmosphere, and a Smart TV, perfect for cosy evenings spent watching your favourite shows or movies. Moving seamlessly from the living area, you'll find the well-equipped and stylish kitchen/diner. For those seeking a quiet moment or the opportunity to catch up on work, there's a lovely breakfast room at the rear of the cottage with a table and seating for more dining options. Venturing upstairs, you'll discover two charming double bedrooms. Each is designed with your comfort in mind, featuring cosy furnishings, a Smart TV, and a feature window that allows you to wake up to beautiful countryside views. From one of the double bedrooms there is access to the twin sleeping attic room via a steep paddle staircase, offering a unique and cosy space for adventurous children. The cottage also offers a convenient shower room, ensuring that your stay is as comfortable and refreshing as possible.

Stepping outside, the cottage's appeal continues with a delightful patio area complete with a charcoal BBQ, providing the perfect setting for al-fresco dining and summer evenings under the stars. Surrounded by nature, you'll feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Great cottage and very well equipped and clean. Beds were amazingly comfortable. Host was fabulous and very welcoming. Very kind and allowed us 3 dogs (2 spaniels and a sausage!) Very close to everything, pub a walk down the lane, shop in the village. Skipton about a 40 min walk or 5 mins in the car. Very central for visiting different areas. OlderRead more children would have loved the 3rd bedroom but be cautious steps are very steep for younger ones. Garden is communal so another word of caution. Hide

Lovely location spoilt by the overpowering smell of the treated timber in the cottage. We had to have the windows open all day to try and alleviate this, thereby we were cold in the evenings but had no controls of the heating system. On contacting the owners with the problem, the only advice we were given was to keep the windows closed all day! A wRead moreelcome pack would have been a nice gesture. We would not return to this cottage. Hide
