With four bedrooms - one twin, one single and two double rooms – this wonderful cottage is full of unique features and could serve as a holiday home to a group of friends.

With panoramic views over 17 acres of private grounds, this property is a magnificent, detached listed farmhouse with its own babbling brook. Set in the picturesque Walden Valley, this charming property is three miles from the village of West Burton. With a range cooker, exposed beams and antique furnishings, this home is full of character. During the winter, under-floor heating and open fires make this a wonderfully cosy property, ideal for a family Christmas away. The property is within easy reach of West Burton, as well as the more famous towns and villages of Buckden, Kettlewell, Hawes and Leyburn.


The location of Cowstonegill is perfect for a relaxing stay and the outlook is stunning. I don't think I have been to anywhere quite so tranquil, and that includes many other parts of The Dales. We enjoyed watching 'the girls' [cows] from the farm across the fell go up for milking on a morning and then again later in the afternoon. Beautiful walking wherever you go in the area. Cowstonegill is a very impressive and well tended property and we were thrilled to have found it - much thought has been given by the owner in furnishing and equipping the house. Perfect in every way
Miss Wheatley

Cowstonegill is a wonderful house. It was warm, comfortable and superbly equipped. It is in such a lovely setting too. The owners have created a real home from home. We want to go back for a longer stay.
Mrs Backshell

The serenity of the cottage in beautiful surroundings. Total peace and quiet.
Mr Mcculley

Cottage was lovely to come back to after a good walk in this beautiful area. It is warm, welcoming, spacious and has lovely views across a quiet valley, with its own grounds to explore as well. There are thorough instructions to help you get the most from your stay, and all was spot on! It exceeded our expectations in every way.
Mr Turner
