Enveloped by the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales, this remote location will allow you to escape the hectic pace of everyday life and immerse yourself in the rural surroundings of a beautiful cottage.

Nestled in the hills of the Yorkshire Dales, this traditional stone cottage is ideal for couples or friends who want to enjoy walks through the countryside with the opportunity to enjoy a cup of tea or a pint of beer in a nearby tearoom or pub. Situated in Swaledale, you can discover wonderful waterfalls and marvel at the wildflower meadows that the area is famous for. You may even stumble across your neighbours, the black-faced Swaledale sheep, on your travels. The walks available from your doorstep are endless.

Lovingly decorated, this cottage has an elegant charm that creates a welcoming home, making it easy to relax into your holiday. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room is centred around the dramatic, stone fireplace and the living-flame fire which creates a cosy ambience and complements the warmth of the underfloor heating. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to create your favourite comfort food before snuggling down for the evening. Traditional cutlery and crockery are available to add the quintessential English touch to any meal.

The walk-in wardrobe has plenty of hanging space and is also home to the washing machine and dryer. The en-suite bathroom has a large bath and walk-in shower.

Outside the cottage, you will find a very special sheltered terrace with spectacular, unbridled views of Kisdon Hill – the perfect place to enjoy your favourite tipple whilst you soak up the surroundings.

We booked Aygill Cottage as the place to spend my wife's 50th birthday weekend and we couldn't have chosen better. The cottage has been lovingly put together by Pat and Alan, with every possible need catered for, including scones and jam awaiting us on arrival. The accommodation is luxurious with a comfortable country feel, and was both a perfect bRead morease for exploring and a relaxing space for winding down in the evenings. Pat was the perfect host - friendly and helpful, with plenty of ideas for our stay, and willing to answer all our naive questions about farm life. We felt as if we had been cocooned in a glorious bubble, away from the stresses and strains of everyday life, and we were somewhat reluctant to leave at the end of our stay. Aygill Cottage is without doubt the most excellent holiday cottage we have ever stayed in, and we hope to be back very soon. Hide
