Part of a farmhouse dating back to 1692, the re-furbished cottage offers extremely well-appointed, spacious two bedroom accommodation set in an idyllic rural garden. With its large, fully-equipped dining kitchen and cosy living room with wood burning stove, it’s the perfect get-away from the hustle and bustle of modern life – a place for the family to truly relax and unwind and enjoy the simple pleasures of life but with all the home comforts you expect. The four-legged family members will love to run around the garden and splash about in the stream!

The former detached barn has been converted into a beautiful, one bedroom romantic retreat with spectacular views over open countryside. Imagine sinking into a comfy superking bed as the night owls hunt in the fields and waking to the sight of Ingleborough glistening in the morning sunshine, then eating breakfast listening to the sound of the stream flowing through the garden while you decide whether to walk or cycle through the Dales or the Forest of Bowland! The Barn welcomed its first Guests in September and was described as ‘a little piece of heaven’!
