Description

Set in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and tucked away down a private road, this semi-detached, stone built property enjoys an idyllic location with lovely rural views. The particularly spacious living accommodation makes it ideal for families and has been carefully decorated and appointed throughout. There are 5 bedrooms, two of which can be super kingsize or twin beds. Should you wish to have it made up as a super kingsize, then enjoy snuggling in to a emperor duvet on those chilly winter nights. The master bedroom also boasts a walk-in wardrobe.

It is conveniently placed for those wishing to walk, cycle or tour in stunning scenery. Just a couple of miles from Grassington which enjoys a variety of country shops, pubs, restaurants and tea rooms with cuisine ranging from good pub grub to fine dining. Grassington plays host to the Arts Festival in summer and attracts some famous artists. In the winter, it holds the Dickensian Festival which reflects bygone times and really gets you into the festive spirit. The spa town of Harrogate is just 20 minutes away. Here you will find both high street and high end shopping together with the Valley Gardens, Betty’s Tea Rooms (a must for afternoon tea), and a wide selection of pubs, restaurants and bars.

Walking is as varied as the terrain with easy, riverside walks along the River Wharfe or more strenuous hill walking. If it’s relaxation you prefer, then why not take a picnic down by the river, or sit in the garden and enjoy the view. Shop and restaurant 2 miles, pub 800 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.
