Country cottage in Lothersdale near Skipton, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Our cosy little cottage faces south so gets lots of sunshine on the little terrace at the front, where you can sit on the bench and enjoy the countryside.  The lounge has open views onto the fields with sheep, cows, rabbits and lots of birds to watch, there is a small multifuel stove.  The kitchen has an electric oven, microwave, washing machine and breadmaker and also looks onto fields and stream. The dining room with open staircase has a large multifuel stove which runs the central heating. There is a porch off the kitchen at the back of the house for coats, boots etc. Upstairs 1 double and 1 single bedroom ( with an extra bed under the single bed for a child) and new bathroom in 2018 with bath, shower cubicle, toilet and washbasin. We have a carport where we store logs for the stoves.  Car parking is on the road outside our house, which is quiet. We have a car which you can use if needed. In the village there is a pub, park with children's playground and tennis court, fishing ponds with cafe and the Pennine Way national trail runs through the centre of the village. Lots of lovely walks from the house and nearby country inns to have meals. We are very close to the Yorkshire Dales, (great for walking and cycling) which has fabulous scenery and beautiful little villages. We are only 5 miles from Le Tour de France and Le Tour de Yorkshire routes. The nearest train station is 2 miles away, there is no bus service in the village.
