The Reading Rooms

A fabulous, stone-built detached cottage, set by a lovely river in the small village of Oughtershaw, in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A former reading room for the village school, this Oughtershaw cottage has been sympathetically renovated to provide first class holiday accommodation. Set out mainly on the ground floor and finished to a high standard throughout, this Oughtershaw cottage combines modern furnishings and fittings with original features to provide a holiday home of real character and style. The warm and rustic sitting room features an open double height ceiling with enclosed crossbeams, a staircase to a small mezzanine area, a lovely woodburning stove and French doors to the patio area. A spacious kitchen with dining area, a delightful bathroom and two lovely bedrooms all ensure that guests have a memorable stay in this premier Dales location, plus outside there is a spacious private garden and a large parking area. Set in a quiet rural village, this Oughtershaw cottage is perfect to get away from it all and enjoy Dales life at its very best. A fabulous location, with wonderful walks from the doorstep and just a short drive to a good selection of traditional old pubs and award-winning gastropubs makes this a superb Oughtershaw cottage, whatever the time of year.

Mostly ground floor. Two king-size double bedrooms. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with woodburning stove. Small mezzanine sitting/reading area.
