Cottage

Description

Some three miles from West Burton, Hill Top Farm House and its adjoining cottage stand alone embraced by a small copse looking south to the wooded gills, meadows and moorland held in close relief on the other side of the valley. To the front of the cottage is a gravelled drive with large parking area and raised patio garden, a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the views.

A very beautiful, contemporary barn conversion, meticulously maintained by the property owners, retaining lots of character with all the modern comforts of home and offering a very high standard of accommodation.

Access is over the flagged patio at the front of the cottage with entry to a hall with separate toilet and washbasin. Adjoining the hall is a modern, well equipped kitchen with ample space for dining. Off the kitchen is a cosy stylish lounge with laminate floor and flagged hearth with multi-fuel stove. A stairway rises from the kitchen to a small landing that serves a double bedroom with brass bedstead and a TV, a twin bedroom and a shower room with large tiled shower cubicle, washbasin and toilet. Also on the landing is an external door leading to a flagged patio and seating area at the rear of the cottage which is a pleasant place to enjoy the evening sunshine.

There are wonderful panoramic views down to Walden beck and across the dale from the bedrooms, lounge and kitchen with spectacular views both up down the dale and out into Wensleydale from the patio, garden and around the cottage.

A cottage not to be missed, where you can truly unwind and relax.

About The Area

Walden

There is no village, only farms and houses scattered on the hillsides amid woodland and tree lined meadows that rise from the bubbling Walden Beck to the open, heather topped fellsides above. The valley gently twists and turns shyly revealing more of its charm with every bend. A truly upland dale of small proportions but with immense character and deep tranquillity.

Just returned home from our 3rd stay at this lovely cottage and have already booked again. Hilltop cottage is in a beautiful location with amazing views and total peace. The cottage is around 3 miles to the nearest village so will only suit people with transport. It is very well equipped, very clean and comfortable. The owners live next door and do not intrude but are always available in the event of a problem or for a chat. We can't wait for our next visit!

Hill Top cottage is wonderful - a home away from home. Rob & Pat are great hosts, there if you need them, but unobtrusive too. The cottage has stunning views, and is comfortable and cosy, it is equipped with everything you could need. The resident chicken came to see us each day as did the cat. The surrounding area of the Dales is beautiful, lots of fabulous walks, places of interest to visit and pretty towns & villages to explore on rainy days. Highly recommend.

Cottage had everything we needed, plenty of cooking utensils and comfortable beds. We were a party of 2 but there is plenty of room for 4. Location is great for a get away from it all holiday, but WiFi is there if you need to keep in touch. No O2 signal. Friendly welcome from the owners. This was our second visit and would definitely recommend it.

Remote location suited us fine, so quiet and peaceful. Excellent accommodation with stunning views across the Vale. Owners very friendly and helpful and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful location but within easy reach of all the Vales many delights. Our first visit to the area, certainly not the last

Hill Top Cottage is one of those places that exceeds expectations. It is set in such a fantastic location, this is difficult to accurately convey in images on a web page. This was our experience, so that when we drove into the gateway and turned down the curved roadway, the sudden reveal of the spectacular view prompted both of us to just say 'wow' in unison. Parking difficulties -forget it. Being overlooked - forget it. Traffic noise - forget it. Your worries and stresses of a busy work life - wave them goodbye. The owners are adjoining, however do not intrude into your holiday, and the one owner (Pat) we met was delightful, welcoming and friendly. The accommodation is purpose designed for holiday enjoyment, and it had everything we needed. We enjoyed dining in the spacious open plan kitchen/diner, and the lounge is modern with wood flooring and a log burner if needed, with full oil fired central heating (we had no need as early September week was a scorcher) installed, so it will obviously be cosy. We also enjoyed time sitting at the table out front in the sun, looking out across the huge expanse of valley in front, (wow again). Location wise; up a single track road just outside West Burton, right in central Wensleydale, with larger centres for shopping easily reached along with the many attractions of Yorkshire Dales. The visitor book reveals many repeat guests, it's easy to see why. We may very well join them.

Our second visit to cottage. V well equipped and we loved the coffee machine. Owners v helpful when we raised a couple of issues: broken toilet flush and TV in bedroom not working. Also Wi Fi not the best! Overall a good holiday

Another perfect stay at Hill Top Cottage. Thanks, as always, to Pat and Rob for their warmth and hospitality. Absolutely wonderful views from this warm, cosy, idyllic cottage which is perfect for our annual Dales fix. We're already looking forward to visiting again.

We had a great week in Hilltop cottage. The cottage was immaculately clean and comfortable. The location is stunning - incredible views of the valley whilst still being close to West Burton. We would definitely stay again.

One of the nicest properties we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable. The scenery is amazing and so quiet. Excellent location. Will definitely be back though I think I prefer the Dales around March time when it is quieter. Everywhere was very busy with parking an issue in some of the more popular spots. I would give the property 10/10 and would highly recommend
