A heavenly hideaway for couples in a glorious corner of the world, coddled between the Lakes and the Dales. You approach through a charming walled garden, then straight into the kitchen with its flagged floor, red Aga, lovely beams and glorious view. Snuggle by the wood-burner (logs on the house) in the beamed sitting room with your very generous welcome basket: champagne, locally made chocolates, homemade bread and cake, all you need for breakfast, and a mini honesty bar with beers, wines and spirits. Upstairs to your oak beamed bedroom and bathroom: the handmade king-size bed is spoiling (with choice of feather or fibre pillows), so too the bathroom with ruby red roll top, thick white towels, robes and large shower. Debbie’s creative flair makes the whole place sparkle, and outside you get another red roll top, front and back gardens to follow the sunshine. Walk across fields to the pub for supper, head back for a cosy night in. Great for romantic couples who want privacy, but you can also take other properties – The Shepherd’s Cottage and The Farmhouse are attached, Angel Barn and helpful owners are nearby.
