About Anglers Cottage

Anglers Cottage is in the beautiful Wharfdale Valley, surrounded by some of the best scenery the Yorkshire Dales can offer. The spacious period holiday home, which dates from 1768 and sleeps ten people in five beautiful bedrooms, is in the picturesque village of Kilnsey near Skipton, next door to Kilnsey Park, a short stroll from the welcoming Tennant Arms gastropub, and close to the River Wharf. The layout is ideal for big families, extended families and friends, especially those who yearn to explore the heartbreakingly beautiful scenery that's on the doorstep. Anglers Cottage is a place where you can step outside your everyday life, focus on yourself, and spend time with some of your favourite people doing the things you love.

Having Kilnsey Park next door is such an asset. The enormous estate is home to a colony of red squirrels, a well-stocked fishing lake, an award-winning cafe (the pink fish and chips are highly recommended!), and farm animals. Feed the ducks, watch the rainbow trout swim happily in the beautiful lake, and experience nature in what is basically your backyard. When you're ready to explore further, follow the ancient Mastiles Lane drover's road to Malham Tarn and across High Cote Moor to the secluded waterfalls at Cote Gill, returning to the house via Arncliffe Cote and Kilnsey Crag. Other places to explore are Grassington, Kettlewell, Arncliffe, Burnsall, Buckden and Hawkswick. A few miles further but still well within reach for a fun day out are Ingleton waterfalls, Aysgarth Falls, Bolton Abbey, How Steam Gorge and Brimham Rocks.

Cyclists and mountain bikers already know that the Wharfdale Valley has some of the most exciting road routes and singletrack in the north of England. The Yorkshire Dales Cycle Way and the 2014 Tour de France route go right past Anglers Cottage - jump on your bike, and away you go! Mastiles Lane is accessible to mountain bikers and usable all year round. It's a challenging 14 miles, even more so if you add in the Settle Loop and head back via Gordale. The Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Forest of Bowland are also close enough for a day's riding.

Skipton is 11 miles away with a good choice of food shops and places to eat and drink. If you're after something fancier, head to Harrogate's boutiques and upmarket eateries. Local attractions include Percival Hall, Bolton Abbey, Ripley Castle, and Ripon Cathedral. There's something for everyone, no matter what your interests or what time of year you visit.

Accommodation Comprises:

Being a former coaching inn, Anglers Cottage was built to be welcome and hospitable, and you'll feel at home as soon as you arrive. Accommodation is over two levels.


  • Light the log burner in the gorgeous stone fireplace, pour the wine and settle back for the first of many fun nights catching up and watching films or the big game on Sky Sports.
  • You don't even have to flick the kettle on for people to be drawn to the farmhouse kitchen/diner. It's light and spacious, with a traditional dresser holding pretty crockery and a solid wood table for sitting down with a cuppa and a wedge of cake or thickly sliced toast.
  • A second sitting room is perfect for parties with a piano in the corner for a post-dinner sing-song. There's a stuffed bookcase next to the snug for guests who prefer to wind down after meals.
  • Utility room with laundry facilities and cleaning equipment.
  • Cloakroom with a WC and a handbasin.


  • Master bedroom with an enormous, super-kingsize (6ft-wide) bed where you can spend lazy mornings admiring the fantastic countryside views. The bed can be separated into two single beds if preferred.
  • Three further bedrooms are all lovely doubles, beautifully furnished with beds made up using Egyptian cotton bed linen. There is space for a travel cot, which can be provided on request.
  • Twin bedroom with two full-sized single beds and built-in storage.
  • Modern bathroom with a shower over the bath, heated towel rail, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: A small patio with garden furniture is a great spot to sit and chill on the long summer evenings. There is on road parking to the front and side of property and guests can also use the nearby pub car park.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are all included. A travel cot (no bedding) and a highchair are available on request. One well-behaved dog is welcome by arrangement. Smoking and vaping are not permitted.
