Description

This double fronted, stone built cottage is tucked away in the small picture postcard village of Burnsall with its wide village green leading down to the meandering River Wharfe, ideal for picnics and paddling. It is located just a stone’s throw from the local pub which dates back to the 16th century and is known for its good food, real ales and fine wines. For fine dining try the local restaurant which has been awarded two AA rosettes, and is within strolling distance.

This is walking country, with both challenging hill walking and more leisurely walking along the river. You can always take the bus to Grassington and walk back to the village alongside the river, enjoying some spectacular scenery along the way and even try the Hebden supension footbridge or the stepping stones.

Being ’Tour de France’ country, there is plenty for the most ardent cyclist, both on and off road. The bustling market town of Skipton is just 10 miles away where you will find a wide selection of shops, a street market, pubs and restaurants together with a Norman castle, barge trips along the canal, an indoor swimming pool and golf course. For shopaholics, Harrogate with both high street and high end fashion, is about half an hour’s drive. The lively village of Grassington, with its summer arts festival which plays host to famous musicians, singers, comedians, poets and general entertainers, is just over 3 miles away, and in winter holds the Dickensian Festival to get you in the Christmas spirit. There is literally something to do for everyone. Shops 3 miles, pub 150 yards, restaurant 200 yards.

About the local area

Beautiful Wharfedale is one of the longest valleys in the Yorkshire Dales and it has a surprise in store for those who follow it southwards.


The River Wharfe rises on high moors and tumbles through the tiny villages of Yockenthwaite and Hubberholme, last resting place of the writer JB Priestley. Then it's on to Buckden, where Wharfedale properly begins.

But this is a Yorkshire dale of two landscapes. To the north, Upper Wharfedale is about high moors and more robust countryside, while Lower Wharfedale, beginning at the villages of Grassington and Threshfield, is very different. The land changes from high moor to a rich river valley with green and lush woodland - unusual in the Dales - with rocky outcrops. One of the most famous is Kilnsey Crag, near the village of Kilnsey. The dramatic overhanging limestone crag has long been a favourite with climbers.

On the hills above the River Wharfe, the remains of Iron Age and Bronze Age settlements and burial cairns can still be seen.

Passing between Grassington and Threshfield, the valley heads down to Burnsall, the waterfalls at The Strid and to the striking remains of beautiful Bolton Abbey.

Lower Wharfedale is a great place for nature lovers. The action of glaciers during the last Ice Age, plus hundreds of years of farming, have created many wildlife habitats. There are hillside streams, rocky limestone outcrops, grass meadows, bogs and dry-stone walls, all to be seen and enjoyed.
