Property code: G0089

Luxurious tucked-away cottage sitting on the cusp of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park within the sleepy little village of Thorton Watlass offering a slow-paced retreat to the countryside.

In a village that surrounds a large green area you'll see rolling hills from every direction, offering a wonderfully rural retreat whilst enjoying the convenience of a welcoming pub within walking distance; a perfect refuge following a day of exploring the Dales. You may recognise the village from the BBC's ‘All Creatures Great & Small' or ITV's heartbeat' thanks to its picturesque backdrop. If you become a little restless, drive just 4 miles to reach the thriving market town of Masham; where picture-postcard Georgian buildings surround the charming cobbled square filled with independent shops, eateries, a wonderful wine shop and two award-winning breweries, you won't be short of options here!

Make your way in via the rustic wood veranda to discover generous, light-filled rooms complete with quirky touches and original charm throughout. At the heart of the cabin is a double height open-plan area made up of the lounge and kitchen area. A stylish wood burner nestles in the corner as sunlight floods through the patio doors creating a truly enjoyable lounge area, no matter the time of year. The contemporary kitchen comes complete with all the mod cons you'll need to cook up some of the delicious local produce before sitting down at the breakfast bar to refuel. The opposite end of the cabin is home to the beautifully finished master bedroom; another bright and welcoming room of generous proportions complete with king-size bed and luxurious soft furnishings. The family bathroom is next door boasting a bath to sink into of an evening as well as an invigorating shower overhead.

There is a lot to be appreciated outside, the veranda to the front is made for those morning coffees as you take in your serene surroundings to start the day. Step through the sliding doors from the lounge to access a stone patio complete with bistro dining spot with a wonderful fire bowl to keep you toasty during the chillier months. If the mood takes you, stroll down to the paddock to meet the resident Zwartble sheep or enjoy a little snooze on your hammock. Off-road parking is available.

Little Wickets was conveniently located within the village of Thornton Watlass, but nicely secluded to afford peace and privacy.
