The Mistal (meaning cow shed or byre) was originally one of four stoneworkers’ cottages and is smallest of several lovingly renovated buildings situated on Craiglands Farm. The accommodation comfortably sleeps four guests and is particularly suited for walkers, cyclists and those wanting to embrace rural life.
On entering the cottage, you will be greeted at once by the warm and homely atmosphere that fills the house. The open-plan layout of the ground floor includes a well-equipped kitchen, dining area, a comfortable sitting room with leather sofas and a magnificent floor to ceiling stone fireplace. After a day out exploring, guests will be able to relax in front of the multi-fuel burning stove and cosy up with a cup of cocoa on those chillier winter evenings. There is also a galleried reading/study area, which is the perfect spot for reading all about the local walking trails. The two bedrooms are on the ground floor, one of which features a convenient zip and link bed, configured as a 6' super-king size bed or twin singles beds on request.
Set against the side of the moor, The Mistal boasts far reaching panoramic views of the Aire Valley. French doors lead out to the elevated, private patio where guests will be able to dine al-fresco while watching sheep grazing peacefully on the rolling green hills and soft valleys. As well as being a Mecca for walkers, this is also cycling country and the property is close to several sections of the Tour de Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Dales are on the doorstep with beautiful traditional villages to explore. A little further afield is the historic city of York. Cowling is the nearest village with historical Skipton just seven miles away. Lake Windermere in the Lake District is 68 miles away for those looking to explore the Lakes.
Craiglands Farm is a smallholding with the owners living in a neighbouring cottage. Free range hens wander at will and at times there will be lambs being bottle fed, as well as pigs living in the nearby woodland!
