Beckside Cottage description

Holiday home
Beckside Cottage is a beautiful, detached, stone-built stable conversion, set in the grounds of a 375-year old listed farmhouse in scenic countryside, just a mile from Cowling, near Skipton, and sleeping two people. This all ground floor cottage boasts a king-size double bedroom with a Victorian brass bedstead, a freestanding bath and an en-suite shower room with rainfall shower, an open plan living space with kitchen with breakfast bar, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburning stove. Bespoke double doors lead to the rear patio area with barbecue, furniture and a hot tub and there is also off road parking for two cars. Beckside Cottage is a wonderful cottage and the perfect base for your romantic holiday.

Skipton is well placed for visiting all that the Dales have to offer. This market town boasts an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. Enjoy a canal trip on a traditional barge or visit Embsay Steam Railway, which has regular steam train excursions at the weekend and is only 1 mile away.

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?

The owners were very helpful, and the area around the property was beautiful and relaxing. I really enjoyed the evening visit from the chickens.

Beckside Cottage is a beautiful cottage, in a beautiful location. Stunning views all around. The cottage had everything you could possibly want - all furnishings to a very high standard . Fantastic kitchen, cosy living area. Beautiful bedroom and superb shower room. Hot tub and own patio area the icing on the cake. Highly recommended.

The cottage was very comfortable and had a touch of luxury. The cottage is in beautiful surroundings with a stream and a small bridge on the property. There are ducks and a few hens roaming around making the country scene complete, not forgetting the hot tub.We enjoyed our stay very much.

No words can describe just how truly beautiful this cottage is. My other half and I fell in love the second the owner showed us around. Both of the owners were amazing throughout our week here and even started our fire for us because us southern city folk had no idea! We will 100% be returning in the not too distant future.

The log burner and the hot tub were the cherry on top of a lovely holiday. They made coming home after a long day even sweeter and thoroughly relaxing.

Absolutely beautiful cottage which was thoughtfully furnished to a very high standard and in a tranquil setting. The hot tub was amazingly relaxing in the evenings, looking at the night stars. Had really lovely owners who went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed, but not at all intrusive upon our privacy. A beautiful location, loads to do if you're outdoor types and if not, you could happily enjoy a week of tranquillity in the cottage reading, watching the chickens and lambs. Fabulous, we would definitely re visit.

I liked everything about Beckside Cottage, it was a beautiful cottage with stunning views. The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard and is short of nothing. Very near to Skipton and other places of interest. I am looking forward to returning in the future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Beckside Cottage. The peace and quiet, having the sole use of a hot tub and use of a log burner when it was cold and wet outside added to the cosy feel of the cottage. A romantic retreat furnished to a high standard, we will definitely be going back.

A fantastic cottage with all we needed and more, we especially enjoyed the hot tub, log burner and the excellent location. Friendly, helpful owners, we'll definitely be returning.

This cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated with no expense spared! Every little detail has been considered and feels like a home from home. The hot tub is lovely and tucked away for privacy which is great! The hosts were lovely and welcoming and let us know about local events in the area we could attend. After 3 nights here we are feeling very relaxed and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and chickens! From pictures we have shown friends and family i am sure that they will be booking up as well as all very impressed with the level of detail and decor. Thank you for a lovely welcoming stay!

awesome cottage with fantastic amenities, felt like you were miles from civilization but in fact only five mins from main road to lots of historic sights and leisure activities. Hosts were nearby if needed without being intrusive.

We had a wonderful and relaxing week at Beckside Cottage. The cottage is really lovely with luxurious bathing facilities and the hot tub just gorgeous as you watch the night sky relaxing. The owners who live on site were so hospitable and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We loved the set up so much we ended up moving house five months later and following our dream of moving to the county so thank you for all of your advise

You couldn't ask for a more perfect getaway. Julie and Dean were lovely hosts we arrived to find a bottle of bubbly waiting for us which was a lovely touch, not forgetting to mention fab fresh eggs every day from their hens. The cottage was to die for every thing you needed was there the decor was beautiful, the hot tub was just the thing after a day sightseeing . We will defiantly be returning and would highly recommend this beautiful cottage

Beckside cottage is perfect for cosy retreat for two. The cottage itself is beautiful, and has recently been refurbished to a high quality, with a wood burning fire, free standing bath tub in the bedroom and a rainfall shower that you will actually want to get out of bed for. There is also a hot tub set directly outside the cottage which is not over-looked and really made the weekend for us. The property is set in the owner's grounds, surrounded by beautiful countryside and some incredible views. The owners are incredibly welcoming and gave us a tour of the property on arrival, even lighting the fire for us. They had already set up the hot tub which was ready for use at any point in the three days we spent at Beckside. We really appreciated the little extras included such as a huge torch to take out walking with us, robes and wood for the fire. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend Beckside Cottage to anyone looking for a quiet break, but with good access to some of the most beautiful areas of Yorkshire.

A fantastic cottage with lovely hosts. This cottage has everything you need and more; the furnishings are lovely and everything has been finished to a high standard. The area is so quiet and the hot tub and garden area has been built so that you have maximum privacy which is great! Many friends and family have already asked about this cottage when they have seen my photos!
