Description

This mid-terrace cottage offers comfortable, well equipped accommodation with stunning views across to Pen-y-Ghent. The Settle to Carlisle Railway line passes through the village along with the Three Peaks and Pennine walks.

The views from the front of the cottage are wonderful. Sit in the front courtyard garden with your morning cup of Yorkshire tea and gaze out across the meadows to Pen-y-Ghent, a perfect start to the day. To the rear is an enclosed garden set with table and cushioned chairs to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or late supper as the sun goes down.

There is a front porch, ideal for storing coats and boots, stepping into a comfortable and welcoming living room with a large window taking in the views. There is a comfortable sofa to curl up on, an open fire in a feature surround, a Smart TV and a selection of books and games for your entertainment.

The fabulous kitchen has stylish grey gloss units and is well-equipped with all mod cons to cater to your every need. To the rear is a utility room with a washing machine and a separate freezer. Upstairs is a large double bedroom, comfortably furnished with stunning views over to Pen-y-Ghent, as well as a second bedroom with twin beds and a bathroom.

The location is ever popular with lovers of beautiful countryside, walking enthusiasts and challengers of the Three Peaks. The village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale lies below the huge sphinx-like form of Pen-y-Ghent, one of the iconic Yorkshire Three Peaks and is the preferred starting point for the Three Peaks Walk. The celebrated Pen-y-Ghent café and shop in the centre of Horton is known as the official start and timing point for the Three Peaks Walk because of the old ticket punching machine inside.

The village is a short drive from both Settle and the market town of Skipton with its magnificent castle. There are a number of quaint villages and spectacular attractions to explore nearby. The market town of Ingleton nestles in the foothills of Ingleborough, another of Yorkshire’s famous Three Peaks and is surrounded by magnificent limestone countryside with deep caves and spectacular waterfalls.

After a day of exploring, return to one of the village’s two traditional pubs, one of which lies right on the Pennine Way and welcomes weary walkers with log fires and local ales, and another that has a stone flagged bar area, especially for those with muddy boots and maybe the odd dog in tow. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

About the local area

Ingleton is a small village in North Yorkshire at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales that is popular with walkers and climbers. It is situated approximately mid-way between Kendal and Skipton and has easy access to the A65, the main road linking Leeds with the Lake District.

The village lies at the foot of Ingleborough, the second highest fell in the Dales. The fell is part of the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, a competition that involves scaling Pen-y- Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in less than 12 hours. Ingleborough itself is an easy walk for the average fit person. At its peak, you'll be able to see the coast of the Irish Sea at Morecambe Bay.

Explore the White Scar Caves that lie under Ingleborough. This is Britain's longest cave system with underground streams and waterfalls. There are fascinating geological formations called Witch's Fingers, Devil's Tongue, Arum Lily and the almost lifelike Judge's Head. It takes about an hour and a quarter to tour the caves.

Two rivers meet at Ingleton. The River Twiss flows from Kingsdale and the River Doe flows from Chapel-le-Dale, to form the River Greta. The Waterfalls Trail is a five mile circular trail that sets out from Ingleton and continues along the banks of the Twiss and Doe rivers. It passes through woodland, gorges and a series of waterfalls. The Thornton Force along the River Twist is one of England's most spectacular waterfalls.

The market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is just eight miles away. Hot air balloons from here set out over the Yorkshire Dales to the east, or the Lake District to the west.
