Property Description

Superbly located in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with long-distance views from the rear towards Malham Cove, these three properties form part of a barn conversion dating back to the 1800s. Exposed stonework, beams and arches are a feature in their well furnished interiors. They are set on the owners’ working farm (keep dogs under control), upon which the owners run a farm shop – a selection of local produce and crafts can be purchased and make unique souvenir ideas. With their own separate garden areas complete with barbecue equipment, the cottages can be booked together to accommodate larger groups wishing to holiday together, yet retain their independence.
Surrounded by rolling countryside criss-crossed with the limestone walls for which this region is renowned, each forms an ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts, with stunning walks from the doorstep leading to Malham Cove, Gordale Scar, Malham Tarn and Janet’s Foss. The historic market town of Skipton is close at hand, boasting one of England’s best preserved Norman castles. Take a leisurely boat trip along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, step back in time with a narrated ghost walk around the town’s backwaters, or hunt for a bargain at the bustling street market – its stalls laden with local produce. An alternative selection of shops and tearooms can be found in Settle (6 miles), an ideal base for embarking on a journey aboard the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway. Set on the banks of the River Wharfe, the ruined priory of Bolton Abbey offers a picturesque setting for picnics and strolls along the river bank, and serves as a good starting point for more challenging hikes through forest and heath. Plenty of good restaurants and country pubs serving real ales and fine local fayre in the vicinity. Shop 10 yards.

This property is close to the 2014 Tour de France route, come and experience the spectacular scenery for yourself and follow in the trail of some true cycling legends.

Ground floor accommodation approached via 17 steps down from parking area. Spacious open-plan living room with electric ‘log-effect’ wood burner and kitchen/dining area.

  2. Excellent property, very friendly owners. We will be gooing back. Oct 2011.
  3. For 4 people sharing this property was one of the nicest we have been in with regards to space, very often 4 sharing sit on top of each other in the living area, would highly recommend it. Farm shop also a bonus and it is no dearer than any supermarket around. April 2011.
  4. Fantastically spacious property. Very clean and well equipped. The welcome tea tray with biscuits and the bacon, eggs and milk waiting for us in the fridge were very much appreciated! Only draw-back was the noise of chairs scraping on the stone floor from the property above. March 2011.
  5. The property was very well maintained and was to a high standard. I would definitely revisit. Nov 2010.
  6. Spacious, airy and modern with nice big windows. Nov 2010.
  7. Very spacious and clean and great facilities. Not having to take towels was a bonus. The kids shared a room but it was an enormous room! Having two bathrooms was another plus. Having the farm shop next door was excellent and the cafe. The views were to die for! Aug 2010.

  16. Loved the space, cleanliness, decor, furniture and utilities. Lovely setting and really lovely touches such as welcome pack. July 2009.
  17. Absolutely fabulous holiday. Setting perfect. Just park up the car for the week and do some marvelous walking by just setting out from the front door. Accommodation extremely comfortable and very well appointed. Farm shop on-site selling fantastic local produce (and wine for those cosy evenings!) Chris and Jane are most welcoming hosts, thank you very much. Will certainly return in the near future! June 2009.
  18. The on-site shop was excellent & the walks from the door step meant that we did not have to use the car other than when we wanted to venture further afield and see the area. April 2008.
  19. Outstanding property, one of the best we have stayed in. So clean with a very warm welcome, eggs and bacon on arrival. Area too is fantastic, so picturesque. We want to go back now! Sept 2008.
  20. Wonderful farm shop food! The view from the cafe is outstanding. Malham Cove only 4 minutes drive away. Outstanding location. Sept 2008.
