Our cozy cottage looks over the village green and is nestled between the small wildlife garden and fields of cows and sheep. A gate from the garden leads directly onto a footpath and a gentle walk along a country lane will bring you to 12th Century Fountains Abbey.
Our handmade country kitchen boasts a traditional stove and a large farmhouse table. French doors take you out onto our flagged terrace which overlooks the large garden. The snug lounge has a large stone fireplace, cozy wood burner and big comfy sofas. Our 3 bathrooms are beautiful with limestone walls and floors and in one, a luxurious roll top bath.
The cottage has a unique layout which seems to create the perfect setting for special occasions. There is plenty of social space, but also room to find somewhere quiet and escape the bustle. The large garden and village green means there's plenty of space for children and dogs to run wild and let off steam which helps the adult to relax and enjoy themselves too. Perhaps this is why we have had so many events at Fountains Abbey Cottage; birthdays (from 4 to 90!), hen parties, and reunions. We know that it's difficult to get everyone together for a whole week which is why we offer weekend breaks bookable as far in advance as you like. Prices begin from £750.
We know how difficult it can be to travel with pets or children which is why we provide the essentials (highchair; cot; dog bed etc.) to make life easy.
We sleep up to 10 in 4 comfortable bedrooms upstairs, a den with hideaway bed downstairs, and a detached guest room in the garden - snug and secluded, ideal for grandparents or romantic couples. Fine Egyptian linen, decadent silk bedspreads and enormous fluffy towels all encourage a sense of indulgence.
