Longdale Cottage is believed to be a former gamekeepers cottage on the shooting estate of William Grenfell 1st Baron Desborough. The cottage is situated in beautiful Raydale, a secluded and unspoilt sidedale off Wensleydale in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is surrounded by traditional farming country and ringed by high fells. In the distance the dramatic peak of Addleborough can be seen and Semerwater, with its beach for swimming off, is a pleasant walk away. It is handy for many of the areas famous attractions, including the bustling little market town of Hawes, Semerwater and the pretty villages of Bainbridge and Askrigg, with its pub which was used as the local in the James Herriott series All Creatures Great & Small. Raydale is a haven for wildlife, hares and deer are often sighted in the surrounding fields at dawn and dusk, along with a wide variety of upland bird life including grouse, partridge, curlew and plovers.
