The cottage has been extensively renovated and refurbished to a high standard, and retains much of its original character, with fully beamed ceilings downstairs, exposed stonework, an inglenook-style fireplace in the lounge and double-glazing throughout. There are solid oak floors downstairs and some low doorways, making this an interesting property which has been pleasantly decorated and very well equipped. TV now updated to 37" flatscreen LCD HD ready.
The cottage has full oil-fired central heating— all fuel and power is provided and included. Also provided are: towels, bed linen, tea towels, iron and ironing board, and a small selection of games, books, maps, DVDs & CDs, DAB and Internet radio and Ipod Docks.

This is in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. It is wonderful walking country with footpaths galore and the River Wharfe nearby with the Dales Way running alongside. It is 20 mins from Skipton that calls itself the 'Gateway to the Dales' and close to Grassington, Kilnsey, Pately Bridge, Malham and Settle, this is a wonderful base from which to explore the lovely Yorkshire Dales. There are many lovely pubs within a 10 mile radius that serve excellent food, and one is only 200 yards away from Swallows' Nest! Also the Dales have lots of delightful tea rooms to visit and again Hebden boasts its own! Very convenient if you like a drink with your meal.
