Beckside Cottage description

Holiday home
Beckside Cottage is a beautiful, detached, stone-built stable conversion, set in the grounds of a 375-year old listed farmhouse in scenic countryside, just a mile from Cowling, near Skipton, and sleeping two people. This all ground floor cottage boasts a king-size double bedroom with a Victorian brass bedstead, a freestanding bath and an en-suite shower room with rainfall shower, an open plan living space with kitchen with breakfast bar, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburning stove. Bespoke double doors lead to the rear patio area with barbecue, furniture and a hot tub and there is also off road parking for two cars. Beckside Cottage is a wonderful cottage and the perfect base for your romantic holiday.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Just returned from a most relaxing week at this cottage. The cottage has everything you need and is spotless, to get a cottage for 2 people that has both a hot tub and a logburner is hard to find so to get this one is fantastic. Dean and Julie are so friendly and answer any questions we had but also left us to our own devices. The local pub Black Lane ends tavern is worth a visit as the food is delicious.

A warm cosy cottage with everything that you need in it and some extra special touches.. Dean and Julie were lovely and very happy to help with anything you needed. A great week in this cottage will be back

This was our 3rd time back to Beckside Cottage. Came for my 50th birthday, just me n wife, doing nothing but cooking, relaxing and chilling out in the Hot Tub! Picturesque scenery, cows just over the fence, ducks and pheasants flying by. This week has been glorious weather wise, sitting out back watching cows go by, no other sounds as in middle of nowhere. Cottage is fully equipped, every thought gone into making it home from home. Must go to the local, Black Lane Ends pub, worth the hike up the road. Hosts Julie & Dean have always been welcoming, always on hand if needed. Looking forward to coming back for our 4th visit. Thank you for this beautiful piece of heaven X

From the moment we walked in we could tell this was something very special. Julie the owner was a delight , so friendly and welcoming. Thank you for the bubbly . The cottage has a beautiful lay out giving you plenty of room. It has an log burner in the lounge that when lit gave that much heat , we had to open a window. The kitchen is very well equipped, Julie and Dean have thought of everything for your comfort and ease. The bedroom with en suite facilities were brilliant too. The hot tub outside was pure bliss, after a long walk , it was lovely to go back and sink into it. The whole cottage was immaculate, a true credit to the owners!! We will return. Highly recommended by us. Thank you so much for a truly relaxing week away Xx

Lovely cottage, owners very nice, only complaint was the roads round the cottage ,as we have a sports car it was bit difficult at times.. Otherwise it was beautiful. (Owner Response) Thank you for your feedback. I can confirm that the roads surrounding the cottage are standard fully tarmaced country lanes. Thank you again.

We had a lovely time at Beckside Cottage.. The location and the amenities (especially the hot tub!) were great. It was a great base for our holiday in the Yorkshire Dales. Mr & Mrs Dawson were very welcoming and helpful. Thank you for the lovely stay!

Backside Cottage is a beautiful holiday cottage in a great location.. It is also extremely well equipped. The owners, Dean and Julie, are very accommodating hosts. We had a lovely week there and would highly recommend it to couples wishing to get away from it all.

From the moment we arrived at this property we knew we had made a good choice.. It is in a lovely location, We were met by Dean who gave us a lovely welcome and showed us around his perfectly equipped and immaculately clean cottage....it really is fantastic. With local pub serving good food and even takeaways delivering to this secluded cottage we had a great 4 days here and wished we could have stayed for longer. The hot tub was amazing on a cloudless sky at night. We will most definitely be back and have already recommended it to friends and family. Thanks you so much for a memorable holiday Roy and Bridie

Beautiful cottage in a remote area.. Owners, Julie and Dean made us feel really welcome and were helpful and informative. Larger towns were only a few miles away if required. Lots to see and do in the area, and it helped with great weather all week. Would certainly recommend Beckside and will certainly be back.

Our second stay at this lovely, very comfortable & quiet cottage set approximately one mile from the main road & Cowling. On the first night it snowed, it continued to for the next three days. Severe snow drifts prevented us getting out in our car, we were restricted to short walks along the lane BUT the owners (Julie & Dean) contacted us daily to ensure we were coping. We remained in the cottage - lovely & warm.They even delivered us hot homemade pasties, free extra wood for the log burner & contacted a neighbour to collect some shopping for us. After the local farmers & Dean had cleared a way through the snowdrifts they even took us in their 4x4 to a local pub so we could get out. The next day Dean & a local farmer then gritted the lane & with Dean leading the way we were able to drive our car to the local pub car park where we parked it ready to depart in the morning. The last morning Dean took us in his 4x4 back up to the car park. What service!!! Thank you to all who made this stay a very comfortable, relaxing, fun experience. We will return.

The cottage is lovely, solid with good quality furnishings and enough kitchen equipment.. The hot tub is great in all weathers. The owners were really helpful, they gave us our privacy while ensuring we had everything we needed. They provided extra broadband because I needed it for work.

We booked this absolutely amazing cottage for a week. The owners have thought of everything, it's beautifuly decorated with top quality finishes. It's so quiet and peaceful, the hot tub is a very welcome added bonus. It's a fantastic part of the country everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Dean and Julie are the most fantastic hosts who really respect guests privacy. Julie really went the extra mile as we got stuck in the snow. She and a local jogger dug and pushed our car all the way to the main road. We have been holidaying in cottages for years this is most definitely the best we have stayed at. We loved everything about this cottage and can't wait to return.

Stunning! We absolutely loved our stay at Beckside Cottage.. A week of relaxation at Christmas time away from it all, absolutely perfect. The cottage is so cosy, clean, has all you need, totally wonderful, we didn’t want to leave – perfect!
August 2017
I booked this cottage as it looked absolutely beautiful and a real home away from home. It was a surprise trip for my Husbands 30th Birthday and wow did it exceed all my expectations! It's in a tiny village called Cowling between Skipton and Keighley and it's perfect for getting away from all the hustle and bustle of city life! The owners were lovely and really paid attention to detail in every way. The hot tub and bath in your room really add the wow factor. We loved every minute of our stay and can't wait to return. 10/10

This cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated with no expense spared! Every little detail has been considered and feels like a home from home. The hot tub is lovely and tucked away for privacy which is great! The hosts were lovely and welcoming and let us know about local events in the area we could attend. After 3 nights here we are feeling very relaxed and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and chickens! From pictures we have shown friends and family i am sure that they will be booking up as well as all very impressed with the level of detail and decor. Thank you for a lovely welcoming stay!

A fantastic cottage with lovely hosts. This cottage has everything you need and more; the furnishings are lovely and everything has been finished to a high standard. The area is so quiet and the hot tub and garden area has been built so that you have maximum privacy which is great! Many friends and family have already asked about this cottage when they have seen my photos!

The cottage was very comfortable and had a touch of luxury. The cottage is in beautiful surroundings with a stream and a small bridge on the property. There are ducks and a few hens roaming around making the country scene complete, not forgetting the hot tub.We enjoyed our stay very much.

No words can describe just how truly beautiful this cottage is. My other half and I fell in love the second the owner showed us around. Both of the owners were amazing throughout our week here and even started our fire for us because us southern city folk had no idea! We will 100% be returning in the not too distant future.

The log burner and the hot tub were the cherry on top of a lovely holiday. They made coming home after a long day even sweeter and thoroughly relaxing.

We had a wonderful and relaxing week at Beckside Cottage. The cottage is really lovely with luxurious bathing facilities and the hot tub just gorgeous as you watch the night sky relaxing. The owners who live on site were so hospitable and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We loved the set up so much we ended up moving house five months later and following our dream of moving to the county so thank you for all of your advise We'll have our own chickens in the spring! Fabulous retreat thank you...

awesome cottage with fantastic amenities, felt like you were miles from civilization but in fact only five mins from main road to lots of historic sights and leisure activities. Hosts were nearby if needed without being intrusive.

You couldn't ask for a more perfect getaway. Julie and Dean were lovely hosts we arrived to find a bottle of bubbly waiting for us which was a lovely touch, not forgetting to mention fab fresh eggs every day from their hens. The cottage was to die for every thing you needed was there the decor was beautiful, the hot tub was just the thing after a day sightseeing . We will defiantly be returning and would highly recommend this beautiful cottage

Absolutely fantastic. Had lovely owners, it was extremely clean, everything was furnished to very high standard and the hot tub was fantastic.
Mrs Swindale

Absolutely beautiful cottage which was thoughtfully furnished to a very high standard and in a tranquil setting. The hot tub was amazingly relaxing in the evenings, looking at the night stars. Had really lovely owners who went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed, but not at all intrusive upon our privacy. A beautiful location, loads to do if you're outdoor types and if not, you could happily enjoy a week of tranquillity in the cottage reading, watching the chickens and lambs. Fabulous, we would definitely re visit.
Miss Rees

A fantastic cottage with all we needed and more, we especially enjoyed the hot tub, log burner and the excellent location. Friendly, helpful owners, we'll definitely be returning.
Mrs Gray
January 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Beckside Cottage. The peace and quiet, having the sole use of a hot tub and use of a log burner when it was cold and wet outside added to the cosy feel of the cottage. A romantic retreat furnished to a high standard, we will definitely be going back.
January 2015
Beckside cottage is perfect for cosy retreat for two. The cottage itself is beautiful, and has recently been refurbished to a high quality, with a wood burning fire, free standing bath tub in the bedroom and a rainfall shower that you will actually want to get out of bed for. There is also a hot tub set directly outside the cottage which is not over-looked and really made the weekend for us. The property is set in the owner's grounds, surrounded by beautiful countryside and some incredible views. The owners are incredibly welcoming and gave us a tour of the property on arrival, even lighting the fire for us. They had already set up the hot tub which was ready for use at any point in the three days we spent at Beckside. We really appreciated the little extras included such as a huge torch to take out walking with us, robes and wood for the fire. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend Beckside Cottage to anyone looking for a quiet break, but with good access to some of the most beautiful areas of Yorkshire.

I liked everything about Beckside Cottage, it was a beautiful cottage with stunning views. The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard and is short of nothing. Very near to Skipton and other places of interest. I am looking forward to returning in the future.
