We love it's village location, it's amenities and value for money, it's perfect, we love everything about the cottage. Better than described, we would love to live here if we could. We would recommend to others, although we don't went everyone knowing about Ivy Cottage as we love it so much. Thank you for everything.25-Aug-2017

Description and Location
Ivy Cottage is one of the many traditional terraced cottages bordering on and overlooking the expansive village green. Access is through a small, railed garden which has a bench to sit and take in the sunshine and watch the daily comings and goings on the green. The entrance opens to a large hallway that serves all the ground floor rooms. To the front, looking out over the green, is a cosy lounge with a tiled fireplace and a dining room with a stone fireplace, beamed ceiling and parquet floor. Both rooms have window seats to enjoy the changing scenes on the green.
To the rear is a well equipped kitchen with a door that leads out to a flagged patio with a rockery border rising to a lawn and outhouses. There is also a small utility room and cloakroom area next to the kitchen. A stairway with decorative balustrades rises from the hall to a half-landing with a large window viewing out over the garden and small garths towards the fells of Penhill. This small landing gives access to a shower room with washbasin and toilet. The stairway then rises to the main landing which leads to three bedrooms and a bathroom with bath, washbasin and toilet. The large family bedroom has a king-size bed and twin beds, the second bedroom has twin beds and a small room has two bunk beds. The two main bedrooms also view over the village green.
There is an unpretentious simplicity of design to the cottage, mixed with charm and character that is emphasised in the retention of original features such as the wide-batten doors, ceiling beams, joists and the light, airy space created by the open stairwell and its large window. A true Dales family home with cosy rooms, comfortable furnishings and tasteful decoration contained within walls of character in a beautiful village setting.
Please note this cottage is let Friday to Friday.
A heating supplement of £42.00 per week will be charged from 22 September 2017 until 18 May 2018 and from 21 September 2018 until 4 January 2019.
Sorry, no short breaks taken at Ivy Cottage.
