Once a pump house belonging to Yorkshire Water, this old building has been given a 21st-century makeover and is now a stylish and romantic retreat.
This cottage is located in a walker's paradise; close to the famous Three Peaks of Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent and Whernisde there are a multitude of countryside trails and peaceful paths to explore, where you'll experience an amazing sense of getting away from it all. If you're more of a roamer than a rambler, take a stroll around the grounds of nearby Bolton Abbey – these striking ruins provide the backdrop to a particularly beautiful part of the Dales and are well worth a visit.
Step inside and you'll immediately sense the quality of this conversion. The décor is elegant, contemporary and of exceptional quality, with underfloor heating, solid oak floors, doors and stairs - it's a dream holiday home for lovers of comfort and style. Starting in the fabulous handmade open-plan kitchen which has been painted in Farrow and Ball greys, it boasts a huge kitchen island and all mod cons including a Quooker (hot water tap). The lounge is wonderfully light and airy with a large cosy sofa and TV with SONOS sound system. Bi-folding doors allow you to experience the moorland from your living room. Downstairs also has a utility room and WC with a Belfast sink and washer/dryer. Make your way up the solid oak staircase to the magnificent bedroom, with king-size bed and the finest bed linen. There's also a free-standing bath in this room, perfect for a long hot soak after a walk around the Dales. A fabulous wet room sits next door, fully tiled in Italian marble and with waterfall taps, a monsoon shower and solid granite surfaces.
The outdoor space is just as impressive as the interior with 360 degree vistas across heather and hill, with cosmopolitan Ilkley nestling far below. A terrace and BBQ provide the perfect spot for al fresco dining, followed up by a soak in the hot tub – a wonderful way to end a day.
