Escape the pressures of modern living in this picture postcard setting, you’ll go home feeling truly relaxed and refreshed.

In a ‘picture postcard’ setting beside the River Skirfare, in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, stands this spacious detached cottage. Riverdale is beautifully furnished and has landscaped gardens, perfect for moon-lit barbecues, that blend into extensive 6-acre grounds which provide total seclusion for guests, making this the ideal rural retreat from which to escape the pressures of modern day life. Stunning views over river and dale can be admired from many of the rooms, and walks beckon from the doorstep, whether it be a gentle stroll along the river bank or a bracing hike over the fells. Close by lies the village of Kilnsey, with its unusual glacially sculptured overhang of rock (Kilnsey Crag), which proves popular with climbers. The National Park information point at Kilnsey Park provides information on the Crag and the surrounding area, whilst a trout farm offers a wealth of interest for families with its conservation and nature trail, trout viewing and feeding areas, as well as fly fishing on two lakes. Geared for children as well, there is a fun-fishing area for the under twelves and an adventure playground. With an estate shop, restaurant and coffee shop on-site, a complete day out can be planned in conjunction with pony trekking at Conistone. Beyond Kilnsey, stunning scenery and wonderful views can be savoured at Littondale, where Pen-y-ghent looms in the background, and idyllic Arncliffe with its village green, church and pub is only a 20-minute walk along the river and proves a popular refreshment point for walkers. West of Wharfedale, the limestone features of Malhamdale attract many visitors – Malham Cove, Malham Tarn and Gordale Scar acting as the magnets. Consisting of a sheer escarpment, crowned by a fractured pavement, there are also waterfalls and dry valleys to take in whilst walking in this awe-inspiring area. The traditional market towns of Skipton (with its well-preserved medieval castle) and Hawes (with Wensleydale Creamery and Ropemakers Museum) both make for pleasant days out. Grassington is a popular local village, easily accessible from Riverdale at only 8 miles, making a pleasant bike ride. Shop 4 miles, pub 1½ miles.

Two sitting rooms, each with wood-burning stove. Dining room. Well-equipped farmhouse kitchen with Aga. Two double bedrooms, one with 5ft bed and one with en-suite shower room and toilet. Two twin bedrooms. Bathroom with bath, shower cubicle and toilet.

    A beautiful cottage in a wonderfully peaceful location. Cottage equipped with everything you could possibly need. Our first visit to Yorkshire and loved how friendly and helpful everyone was everywhere we went. The local villages of Kettlewell, Grassington and Arncliffe definitely worth visits for a glass of wine or beer in the lovely pubs or tea and cakes in the tea shops. We even had great weather thrown in. Thank you Clive and Margaret. Clive, Carole, Colin & Teresa 16th September 2016

    Fabulous stay at Riverdale. Absolutely stunning location and beautiful cottage. The kids loved the gardens and the rope swing and we spent many hours in the sunshine enjoying the wonderful views. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need and lots of lovely touches throughout making it a real home from home. Can't fault this cottage and we are definitely hoping to return very soon!

    This is an exceptional holiday cottage - clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped. It is in an absolutely lovely location beside the river. There are many walks you can take right from the front door, and plenty of wildlife to spot in the immediate vicinity. The owners have thought of everything necessary to make it a wonderful holiday, with suggestions for local walks, shops and pubs. We would certainly love to return.
