An immaculate stone cottage, one of a courtyard of properties, reached through a narrow archway, remember to fold your wing mirrors as you drive in! All is cottagey but contemporary inside. In the beamed open-plan living room, candles flicker above as you eat around a chunky wooden table; thanks to an open fire, pretty lanterns, big telly and heaps of board games, a night in is a fabulous treat. Clamber up two floors to a stylish master bedroom with a lovely arched window and views to the Methodist chapel; back down a floor is a light bright double with an iron bedstead and a chandelier. There’s also a cosy twin. Discover delicious local produce in the town’s independent shops, and squirrel away your bounty in the big larder; the beamed kitchen is a perfect blend of modern and country. There’s much to explore in this unpretentious market town and the area is walking heaven: the Three Peaks Walk, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District all on the doorstep. Don’t miss the best panorama in England, Ruskin’s View… and there’s always the little walled garden for a quiet cuppa.
