The Thack

Gargrave 2 miles. A superb detached cottage situated in an idyllic rural setting close to the village of Gargrave. Presented to a high standard by the owners of the Coniston Hotel Country Estate and Spa (2 miles away), this characteristic cottage is an ideal retreat for any large group looking to spend time together in this wonderful location. The Thack features five bedrooms each with access to its own en-suite or bathroom. A ground floor double with en-suite is complemented by further doubles on the first floor including one with its own staircase. Furnished to a superb standard, a great night’s sleep is assured. The living areas are the ideal place for families or friends to gather in comfort and style. Serve up a delicious dinner in the well-equipped kitchen with dining area before cuddling up in front of the woodburning stove with the additional comfy snug room being a fantastic place for children of all ages. Outside, expansive grounds surrounded by fields enhance the feeling of escape and why not indulge a little by taking a relaxing dip in the hot tub with a glass of bubbly; there’s no better way to unwind! The Coniston Estate Hotel & Spa offers complimentary access to their spa facility with a luxurious infinity pool complete with stunning views or you can work up a sweat in the quality gymnasium maybe before sampling specialist food in the brasserie.
