Curlew Cottage description

Holiday home
Curlew Cottage is a mid-terraced cottage close to the village of Silsden, just nine miles from Skipton. The cottage sleeps five people and has one king-size double bedroom, one twin and one single together with family shower room and ground floor bathroom. Also in the cottage is a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with woodburner. Outside is ample off road parking and an enclosed garden with furniture. Situated on the edge of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, Curlew Cottage is an ideal base from which to explore this lovely part of the country.

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?

Ground source underfloor heating with woodburner. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV with FreeSat, Blu-ray, DVD, CD, radio, WiFi. Fuel, power and starter pack for woodburner inc. in rent. Further fuel on honesty box basis. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot and highchair. Ample off road parking. Bike and equipment store available. Enclosed, front garden with furniture plus shared use of field to rear. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shops 2 miles, pub 1.5 miles. Note: There's a locked interconnecting door between the property and the owners' home. Note: The cottage has original, slightly uneven stone steps both to the lower ground floor bathroom (5 steps) and to the first floor (12 steps) which may make it unsuitable for those with limited mobility. Also from the parking area immediately outside the rear door, the property is accessed via three steps into the entrance lobby and then two steps to the kitchen.

Beautiful place, five star accommodation. The owners couldn't do enough for us and went the extra mile with everything, have already booked again for next year.

The cottage was very clean, well kept and incredibly well equipped. The owners have thought of everything, I cannot praise them more highly! They provided excellent information about local attractions and local walks in the cottage.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful spot. The underfloor heating was an added bonus. The owners were great.

We have stayed in quite a few cottages and this is definitely one of the best.

Lovely quirky Cottage, out in the countryside but close enough to amenities. A good base for visiting Yorkshire and Lancashire.

How friendly the owners were. They welcomed us and we had chats with them throughout the stay. They were so helpful and kind, and the house was simply perfect.

My family think I'm a wonderful organiser - so challenged me to find self-catering accommodation on the south side of the Dales, in peak holiday period, for five adults, one of whom had mobility issues, in the middle of the school summer holidays, with only 4 weeks notice. I thought, when I found Curlew Cottage that I'd hit the jackpot (i.e. _found_ somewhere!) It turned out not quite as accessible as we'd hoped - but with a little jiggling of sleeping arrangements, was fine (note to others: the uneven floors are VERY uneven, and the single room is on a half-landing-up-a-half-separated-stairs - I'd recommend you look at Kestrel next door, and round up three other family members and book both). When my husband and I turned up as the advanced guard, we were very taken aback - EVERYTHING was perfect. A great welcome from the hosts. A house that I'd be proud to call my home (and it feels like a home rather than a show home). Superbly equipped (and "ask us if there is anything you need, there isn't room to fit everything in"). I had looked at a map (yep, near enough to the Wharfe Valley, book it) but not _really_ looked at a map, so the setting came as a complete surprise. I'd imagined a mill-town terrace - nothing wrong with that, I thought - often have really nice views. So to find ourselves on a working farm, high above the Aire was a superb bonus.
