The Yorkshire Dales is certainly God's own Country. Rolling hills and picture perfect views greet visitors on arrival at Great Gib Cottage.
If you’re after a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of 9 til 5, or a family holiday, then look no further. Our cottage offers peace, space, impressive panoramic views, wildlife, nature and cosy comfort in a secluded location.
We have tried to leave all the original features including stable doors and beautiful beams. There is a definite feel of home whilst being up-to-date, clean and fresh.
It is an upside down house, which allows you to see the incredible views from the comfort of the sofa in the lounge and kitchen.
The cosy bedrooms and a bathroom are downstairs. One bedroom is a double whilst the other is a twin, both with wardrobes.
The shower room is on the mezzanine alongside the area dedicated to study and work, complete with a desk and books. Limited Wifi is also available.
The lounge and kitchen is open plan, windows at each end so the morning sun shines and you can admire the evening sunsets from the window seats.
The garden is a paddock where you can have your own private BBQ. Garden furniture is available. There are also a few toys, swings and slides for families, if needed. There is an area in the barn where you can store your bikes, wet boots etc.
The central heating is oil fired, which heats the water and the house. We have a gas stove in the lounge, which looks like a wood burner.
Parking is available for up to two cars next to the cottage.
The cottage is located up a farm track which is approximately half a mile. The track is maintained regularly. You will drive past a historical leadmines, another house and then you’ll reach Great Gib.
Stay at home and relax in our beautiful cottage and garden. Take a look around the Historical Lead Mine minutes from the cottage. You can even stroll down to Cononley or Lothersdale and sample some traditional Yorkshire pub grub.
My husband designed this beautiful 200 year old barn conversion, which is attached to our house. This type of house and barn is called a Laithe House, built in approx 1750.
We love animals but sorry, due to allergies of other people, we do not allow dogs or smoking in the cottage.
