Ashknott Cottage

A delightful, stone-built cottage located in the lovely lower Yorkshire Dales village of Kirkby Malzeard near Ripon. A former farmworker's cottage, the property dates back to the 1800s and exudes charm and character throughout. This superb cottage offers outstanding accommodation, featuring a warm and inviting living with new furnishings and room complete with a dining table and woodburning stove, perfect for enjoying a meal and getting cosy in front of the fire after an exciting day out exploring the local area. The ground floor also has an updated well-equipped shaker-style kitchen with new work surfaces, with original exposed beams and a distressed oak door. Upstairs, the cottage boasts a spacious bedroom with a king-size bed and adjacent bathroom with a large freestanding bath, with separate shower perfect for couples looking for a memorable romantic break in this stunning area. Why not enjoy a coffee or glass of wine in the private gravelled area to the rear of the cottage or enjoy a morning coffee in the outside front area. For those wishing to enjoy beautiful walks and the tranquility of this Dales location, this cottage is perfect for you. The village boasts a fine pub, serving excellent cuisine and a good range of real ales, and a celebrated fish and chip shop as well as the village shop. The nearby historic city of Ripon is a short ten minute drive away, where you can explore historic old streets and alleyways, fascinating museums, the market square and a stunning cathedral. Slightly further afield is the lovely town of Harrogate, boasting a wide variety of inviting pubs, high end restaurants and tempting shops, whilst the magnificent Turkish Baths, old theatres, and Bettys tea room - overlooking Montpelier Gardens - are unmissable.

With beautiful countryside to explore, and heritage houses and castles to visit, this Kirkby Malzeard cottage is the perfect base for a romantic or relaxing break in the Yorkshire Dales.
