Ashbank Cottage Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
Ashbank Cottage is a cosy single-storey cottage in a countryside location in Tatham, a couple of miles from Low Bentham. The cottage has a double bedroom and a bathroom, along with an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburning stove. Outside is off road parking for two cars, and a decked patio with furniture. Ashbank Cottage makes a wonderful base for couples looking to enjoy the scenery, good walking and market towns of this beautiful area.

High above the traditional Yorkshire market town of Bentham, the tiny hamlet of Tatham sits on the edge of Burnmoor overlooking The Great Stone of Fourstones - an Ice Age relic which marks the boundary between Lancashire and Yorkshire. This ancient monument has become a distinctive feature of the landscape boasting spectacular views over the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Forest of Bowland - a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Excellent walking and cycling routes cross all three of these stunning areas, whilst nearby Bentham boasts a range of amenities and a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. The market towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal are all within easy driving and are well worth visiting making this an exceptional destination no matter what time of year.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

It was a perfect cottage in an idyllic location, perfect to get away from the every day hustle and bustle of life. The Cottage and its furnishings were really cosy and homely and the welcome from the owner was warm. Views from the living room were stunning and it was so peaceful. Would recommend this to anyone and everyone, so very happy with our short stay.

The owner made us very welcome. The best thing about the cottage is the fantastic setting, we spent hours outside watching the wildlife, and listening to the curlews, and I even took up my paints again for the first time in years.

This cottage was delightful with wonderful views. It was very tastefully furnished and we were given a warm welcome by the owner. There are local maps of the area for your use and plenty of reading matter, plus binoculars for you to watch the wildlife on the lake. We certainly hope to return and would have no hesitation in recommending it.

We adored our time in Ashbank Cottage. We took lovely walks and enjoyed the stunning countryside views. Our favourite part was the personal aspect of staying in a cottage and meeting the owner, rather than staying in a large impersonal hotel. There was a lovely collection of books and DVDs and we felt connected to all who had stayed there before.

We have stayed in many self catering properties and this is without doubt the best equipped, smartest and cleanest property we have ever rented and excellent value for money. There is the added bonus of it being situated in a beautiful area.

Beautiful views of the hills around. Having a wood burner kept us cosy on evenings. So easy to get to both the Dales and the Lake District, we were spoilt for choice on where to go.
