This delightful cottage is peacefully set in the heart of the Dales with wonderful open views while close to the 3 peaks.

Far from the madding crowd, this delightfully cosy holiday cottage is one of only a handful of buildings in the beautiful and unique moorland landscape of Grisedale, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Built in 1666 with low beams and latch doors, it has wonderful open views from the south-facing garden. Grisedale (also spelt Grisdale on some maps) is located close to the train station of Garsdale, just off the A684 between Hawes, 6 miles, and Sebergh, 10 miles. The nearest pub, serving good food and a selection of real ales, is about 3 miles away. Grisedale was known as the ’The Dale that Died’ from the book and TV documentary of the same name, filmed in the 1970s when the last remaining inhabitant left the valley. Since then, many of the buildings, including Moor Rigg Cottage, have been renovated and life has returned to the valley. The area is a real paradise for bird watchers, with many species of owl and other birds of prey being found in Grisedale, along with ground nesting birds (skylark, curlew, oystercatcher, lapwing and red grouse). Red squirrels, hares, deer and wild ponies also frequent the dale. There are many footpaths across Grisedale and large areas of open access land. The cottage is located close to the Yorkshire Dales famous 3 Peaks walk, with 2 of the 3 peaks visible from the garden. It is also near the 2014 Tour de France route, allowing visitors to experience the spectacular scenery and follow in the trail of some true cycling legends. The cottage is also within easy reach of the Pennine Way, Coast to Coast walk and the Lake District (45 minutes to Kendal). Shops and restaurant 8 miles, pub 3 miles.

    We would definitely visit this property again. We loved the remoteness of it and the fact there was no TV or WiFi to distract us. There were plenty of books and games to keep us occupied as well as the many maps and walking books which we made great use of. Can't wait to visit this cottage again.

    I the proximity of other people and the noise they made detracted from the cottage. Otherwise I would have scored much higher all round.

    Wonderful position and great walks from the cottage.. Comfortable and cosy and we enjoyed the break from the tv.. The kitchen had everything we needed. and the views were superb. The dog had to be kept on a lead all week while there though due to sheep being everywhere, even up to the front door and immediately over the garden wall at the back..

    We had a pleasant break. Nice cottage, very traditional. On our first day, a bit cold but we knew that as work going on on the chimney. Views great, if you want real hills and dales this is it! Convenient for Lakes, Dales, York. Road to get there a bit rough but OK for a normal car. Parking needs care in manoeuvring but E Merc can do it so? Lots of hot water, bath but a shower would be nice. Would help strangers to the area if a few days fuel supply was left (one day's normally is) even if charged as it takes time to find the supplier. A log fire, plus snow, excellent!
