This fabulous, stone-built terraced cottage, built in 1680 in Preston-under-Scar, can sleep four people in three bedrooms.

Emcot is a wonderful, mid-terrace stone cottage, built in 1680 in Preston-under-Scar, three miles from Leyburn in North Yorkshire. The cottage has three first floor bedrooms, including a king-size double room. There is a first floor bathroom, a ground floor shower room and a sitting room with a south facing balcony. On the lower ground floor, there is a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting area for two by a woodburning stove. The boot room allows access into an enclosed, south facing cottage garden at the back of the property, where you can sit and enjoy a drink in the summer. There is also roadside parking available on a first come/first served basis, but which is usually available. Set in a wonderful spot, with so much to see and do in the surrounding area, Emcot is a wonderful base for couples, friends and families.


Emcot is a charming period house tucked away in the peaceful hamlet of Preston under Scar, a perfect location to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The house spans over three floors, with a Juliet balcony on the second floor, the main living room, " what a view". Fully equipped with every mod con and packaged beautifully, with really lovely decor. I would wholeheartedly recommend this home from home, as the base for a wonderful scenic experience. The house itself has everything you could want and more.

Emcot was a comfortable, well equipped cottage situated in lovely surroundings.

A beautiful cottage, very dog friendly, warm, cosy and in a lovely quiet village. Stunning views with fabulous walks right from the doorstep. The kitchen was so well equipped and a pleasure to use. The beds are very comfortable and the bed linen pristine and luxurious. There are lovely pubs very close by with excellent food. I cannot fault this cottage and location, can't wait to return.

We would highly recommend this fantastic cottage. The booking process was smooth and the owner extremely friendly and helpful from the beginning. On arrival the cottage was a delight to explore and proved to be a everything you could want in a holiday home. The house is full of character and offers great views across to Penhill. The weather in March was surprisingly good and we even managed to enjoy a coffee on the balcony without being cold! The property is well equipped, especially the kitchen. We stayed in most nights to cook and it was honestly the best equipped kitchen we have ever encountered whilst on holiday. The boot room was handy when returning muddy from a walk and the general standard of the cottage was very high. Can't think of a single negative. A delight to stay in during colder weather as the cottage is surprisingly warm for an older property and you can make good use of the log burner. It would be nice in warmer weather as you could sit out on the balcony or in the garden and enjoy the view. Will certainly return. Preston Under Scar itself is a small and friendly village to stay in with some interesting walks from the village. Leyburn and Redmire are within walking distance and there is plenty to see in the local area so it was nice to not have to drive very far from the cottage each day.

The location of the cottage was great and many lovely places in the Dales were easily accessible. It was very cosy around the fire in the kitchen area. The kitchen was well equipped and the fridge was a very good size. The owner was particularly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The views across the Dales from the cottage are wonderful and one morning we watched the sun come up from the bedroom and it was absolutely beautiful. Would recommend this delightful cottage for a break away.
