Enclosed patio with garden furniture. 8-acre grounds (shared with the mill and other cottages). Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note: There is a mill race and pond in the grounds, and drops down to the river, 30 yards away.

Set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this semi-detached cottage is situated on the banks of the River Aire between the Malhamdale villages of Kirkby Malham and Hanlith. It enjoys 8 acres of shared grounds in an idyllic setting where you can simply park your car and explore the Dales from the door! Enjoying a quiet location down a private drive, this cottage, originally built in 1792, forms part of an exclusive development of a former cotton mill and workers’ cottages.
The River Aire feeds the mill pond and leat, which adds charm and life to the grounds – a bird spotters’ paradise. The mill pond retains many of its original gates to manage the flow and a small bridge towards the end of the land crosses the head gates to the pond. There is a communal garden to the front of the mill with space to sit and enjoy the river and weir. In addition there is a small private woodland, shared by the residents of Scalegill.
Malham Cove, with its limestone amphitheatre and the gorge of Gordale Scar, are within easy (10-minute) walking distance, as is Malham Tarn, one of the largest natural areas of water in Yorkshire. Alternatively, the market towns of Settle and Skipton are close by and offer a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants. The Settle to Carlisle Railway Line is renowned as one of the most beautiful lines in the country and, on occasion, offers travel by steam train. Skipton enjoys a wide, sweeping High Street with a Norman castle standing guard at the top. The Leeds-Liverpool canal traverses Skipton and outlying villages, with canal day trips from Skipton a great alternative way to view the area. Farm shop 2 miles, pub/restaurant ¾ mile.

    Warm, comfortable, cooking equipment first-rate, spectacular countryside. Heating could do with coming on a bit earlier as we're very early risers (6 a.m.) but we were asked not to adjust. We've stayed in 34 cottages in different parts of England and Wales and even allowing for a steady improvement in standards over the past 15 years or so. Miller Cottage is in the top two

    The cottage is in a fabulous location and is well equipped. By the end of our two week stay, it felt very much like home. The cottage is ideally situated for lots of local walks and there are a number of local walking guides provided in the cottage. There are some good local pubs that serve food within easy walking distance and there are plenty of local attractions. The stone floor in the entrance hall and kitchen and the under floor heating makes this a very dog friendly cottage and we always felt warm and toasty despite it being February. Yorkshire Cottages were brilliant and couldn't have been more helpful in sorting out a jammed toilet flush. I really would recommend this cottage. My only regret is that we didn't get to see the otters that were playing in the river.

    This is a great place to get away from it all, it is convenient for Malham, Malham Cove and the Penine Way. The nearest pub, the Victoria is a 15 minute walk away but be warned that you will need a torch if walking after dark! The 4 for amenities merely reflects the cottage location and by no means the cottage itself which is clean, comfortable and well equipped.

    Beautiful setting, lovely walks straight from the door. Cottage very clean and comfortable. Access via a very narrow track with no passing places so always hopeful noone coming the other way. Heating a bit erratic, timings need to be adjusted for the time of year. Did feel a little uncomfortable leaving spare key in key safe when we went out at the owners request considering our possessions and valuables were in the cottage. Never been asked to do this before and to be honest not entirely happy with it, for that reason would not return

    Surprisingly spacious cottage in a beautiful location, perfectly situated for visiting Malhamdale & surrounding areas of the Dales. Short walk to either Malham village or Kirkby Malham, both with dog-friendly pubs. Well-equipped kitchen, large living room, plenty of useful walking books & guides. Only thing lacking was a hairdryer.

    A lovely cottage in rural location. Great walks from the doorstep. I would recommend an online supermarket delivery as nearest shops are a little drive away. You can walk to several pubs which are all dog friendly.
