About the property

Addingham, Nr Ilkley, Yorkshire - Peaceful location surrounded by open farmland

Low Sanfitt Cottage is surrounded by open farmland and enjoys a quiet and peaceful location on the edge of

The Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Cottage was lovingly refurbished in March 2017 and has been beautifully furnished to a very high standard. It is chic and stylish, yet still incorporates original character and charm, exposed beams, wood lintels, flagged floor and a fireplace with a multi-fuel stove.

This is a warm and welcoming home from home and is ideally situated for the Yorkshire Dales, Bronte Country and the Vale of York. There are good country walks in the immediate area with open moors and fells just a short drive away. Conveniently situated in a rural setting between Skipton and Ilkley yet minutes from either town.

About Mrs Holly Flather

Our family moved to Low Sanfitt Farm in 2003 and whilst renovating our new home we lived in Low Sanfitt Cottage for a year. The cottage is attached to our farmhouse but enjoys complete privacy. There is a separate cottage garden and two parking places allocated for the Cottage. Once we had moved into our farmhouse we found that the cottage was rarely used. It was in 2005 that we let it out for the first time so other people could experience the enjoyment of staying in this cute, cosy cottage for their holidays. In March 2017 we upgraded and refurbished the cottage and it is now a chic and stylish haven away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We have welcomed many happy holiday makers including walkers, cyclists, friends, families, honeymooners and more, many who have returned year after year.

Mrs Holly Flather purchased this cottage in 2003

What makes this cottage unique










Guestbook comments from the owner

"Second visit to this comfortable cottage. The weather treated us well this time. Lots of lovely walking and beer tasting - dogs going home tired out as are there owners!"

"Lovely little cottage, it was our first time in the Dales, we really enjoyed our weeks holiday. Bolton Abbey and Malham Cove were the highlights and we will definitely come again."

"Our fifth visit to Low Sanfitt! As comfortable and enjoyable as ever. Thank you again and again for everything."

Loved the cottage. The facilities were perfect for our needs. Our two Irish setters enjoyed the garden, orchard and field. Holly and Anthony were delightful and made us welcome. We enjoyed the brownies and and our girls enjoyed the biscuits in the welcome pack!

We would definitely return!
