Recently refurbished into a bijou country cottage in the Yorkshire Dales, this two-bedroom luxury holiday home features a quirky Scandinavian style layout; the bedrooms and bathroom are on the ground floor and the living room and kitchen are upstairs. We love the bath within the master bedroom.

Arrive into the boot room and you are welcomed by a full wall map of the Yorkshire Dales, so you can be sure to get your bearings before you go out exploring. Wind up the wrought iron spiral staircase to the living area; please note this staircase is not well suited to guests with limited mobility.

The first floor features the open plan kitchen, dining and living room which overlooks the private patio and the grounds beyond. Restored original wooden floorboards and the log burner set into the chimney breast give this country cottage in Yorkshire a cosy feel. Settle into the comfy sofa or the two armchairs in front of the smart TV. The kitchen cupboards are well-equipped, and there is an electric oven, induction hob, and dishwasher. Sit at the breakfast bar or the dining table for meals for up to four guests, whilst a door leads out to the private patio for alfresco dining.

The bedrooms are on the ground floor at either end of this country cottage. The modern bathroom sits between the bedrooms, which has a walk-in shower.

The master bedroom is a traditional cottage style with exposed stonework and beams running across the vaulted ceiling. The bed is king-sized with Egyptian cotton sheets, and the added luxury of a freestanding roll-top bathtub. With plenty of space, there are two armchairs and a kettle for making a morning coffee without having to head up to the kitchen.

A second bedroom features two extra-large twin beds and has warm cosy tones. On one side of the room is the dressing table plus there is hanging space, a large chest of drawers and a hairdryer. There are also tea making facilities in here with a kettle.

Stone steps lead out from the sitting room to the enclosed patio. Facing south-west, this is a pretty spot for the afternoon and evening sunshine. There is space for alfresco dining on the wooden chairs and table, and there's a charcoal BBQ.

Although the surrounding grounds are private, for a morning stretch of the legs or a longer stroll, a public footpath starts on the other side of the garden gate through the fields where you can explore the Yorkshire Dales from this country cottage.

The property is accessed from a private driveway with two neighbouring properties within the grounds. One of these properties is a family home, and the other property is The Coach House. This cottage can be booked alongside the neighbouring Coach House for a group of 6 guests.

On arrival, you will find a locally sourced welcome hamper. The modern kitchen has a full kitchen inventory for a home from home experience, and a starter pack of logs, kindling, and luxury toiletries are included. There is wi-fi throughout.

Guests should note this property features a traditional wrought iron spiral staircase, making access more restricted for some guests.

This is a pet-free property. Please note there is no washing machine.

Situated next door at Scargill Lodge Cottages is its sister property The Coach House, a large one-bed romantic retreat, perfect for couples looking to escape. Read more reviews for Scargill Lodge Cottages.

Book both properties together for up to 6 guests, making Scargill Lodge Cottages well suited to extended family or an escape with friends. The perfect country cottage in the Yorkshire Dales for a family getaway or couples looking to escape the everyday ordinary.

There is parking outside for two cars. Enter the ground floor of the cottage and find a hallway with the sleeping quarters. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and its own roll-top bath. The second bedroom has two larger-than-normal twin beds. These share a bathroom with a shower on the ground floor.

On the first floor is the living area and kitchen. Steps lead out to the enclosed patio, and beyond back to the parking area. In there is a table seating four guests, and a log burner.

The staircase to the upper floor is original and wrought iron, not suitable for those with reduced mobility. For more information on this feature please see photographs or contact the team for more details.

The Bothy is located near Barnard Castle on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, with plenty of beautiful walks straight from the front door as well as being within easy reach of the Lakes District National Parks and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are plenty of great places to eat and drink nearby, the closest being The Milbank Arms in Barningham where you can enjoy the welcoming Yorkshire atmosphere in the main bar or catch up around the open log fire.

The main attraction is the Bowes Museum, an impressive French-style chateau, surrounded by gardens and parkland.
