Living room Ground Floor

The living room has exposed beams, wooden floors, dimmer-lighting, and a cosy wood-burning stove, perfect for kicking back and relaxing after a day spent up on the moors.

There’s plenty of information about the local area, including walking maps, and even a small library of books. Delve into the games cupboard and enjoy some unplugged family time, or simply settle in for the night with the HD TV with Freesat and a DVD player.

Kitchen Ground Floor

The Kitchen/Dining Room glows with light in the mornings as the east facing French windows let the sun flood in (weather permitting, of course!).

There’s everything you’d expect, including an electric fan assisted oven and hob, a microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washer-dryer, the all-important cafetière, and a Roberts retro radio.

Enjoy your breakfast on the private terrace overlooking the sheep-grazed upland farm, with views down to Hartoft beck and the native woodland beyond.

First Bedroom Ground Floor

The First Bedroom is home to a lovely king-sized bed made up with crisp white, nonallergenic bed linen and a country patchwork quilt.

There’s plenty of clothes storage in the Farrow & Ball painted chest and built in wardrobe (with wooden hangers, naturally). The bedside units give you ample room for your books and magazines.

The blue and cream, nature inspired décor creates a calming space, and the wooden ladder to former hayloft adds to the cosy atmosphere (although this is not currently accessible to guests).

Family Bathroom Ground Floor

Family bathroom with a Grohe thermostatic bath filler and a shower over bath – and a loo, obviously. There’s also a sink with a lit mirror.

We provide an Egyptian cotton hand towel and bath sheet per person, and you can keep them nice and warm on the heated ladder towel rail.

Second bedroom First Floor

The second bedroom is upstairs and has a sloping ceiling punctuated by Velux windows with blackout blinds. The floors are stripped pine made cosy by the addition of a few rugs.

This room has another king size bed, and an en suite with Grohe thermostatic shower, WC, heated towel rail, and a lit mirror. There’s built-in clothes-storage under the eaves and this space is also where we keep the iron, ironing board, spare pillows, etc…

Outside the Cottage

Outside the cottage is a stone-paved terrace with truly beautiful views of this wonderful part of the world! It’s furnished with a wooden table and six chairs so, weather permitting, you can eat your meals out here – whether cooked in the kitchen or under Yorkshire skies on the terrace’s barbeque.

We encourage local wildlife and hang a bird feeder on the Wheaten plum tree. Don’t be surprised if you see the deer that frequent the fields – along with all the sheep, rabbits, squirrels, badgers, voles, owls, and bats!

The courtyard area at the front has a couple of benches and a rockery, and swallows and martins nest under eaves in the long summer months.
