The Experience

Gorgeous countryside in this neck of the woods, rolling and lush, with a posse of sheep round every corner. The house, cottages and six acres of orchard and paddock stand on their own, with heart-stopping views. Warm smiling Louise lives in the main house, keeps hens, ducks and geese and is passionate about North Yorkshire. Two stunning cottages – one new, though you’d never know it – with rug-cosy, stone-flagged sitting rooms and kitchens to love. The style is an enticing mix of modern and vintage: smartly upholstered wing chairs, a squishy old chesterfield, a fine pine cupboard. Gamekeepers Cottage has two bedrooms downstairs and a master up top. We loved the ground-floor double bedroom, calming and cosy, but the top suite is a wow, with three separate spaces and a French-style bed. Cross Cottage has two charming ground floor bedrooms – one double, one superking/twin. Snuggle up by the wood-burner for a cosy night in with a basket of logs and a plasma TV; in summer, drift onto the patio (each has its own garden) with furniture, barbecue and views. As for pubs, you’re spoilt: the Coach & Horses at Bolton by Bowland, the legendary Inn at Whitewell, the Spread Eagle at Sawley, down the road. Lovely.

Quiet rural location, ideal place to get away from it all. Gamekeepers Cottage was spotless and the owners are making a big effort to make the accommodation Covid compliant whilst still feeling comfortable for guests. Very friendly and helpful owners, the cottage was really well equipped to a modern standard and tastefully decorated. Great location for country walks, with pubs in Settle a few miles away.
