Nethergill Farm Cottages

Oughtershaw 0.5 miles. Two outstanding cottages, part of a stone-built barn conversion dating back to 1871, set amongst beautiful rolling Dales countryside, less than a mile from the small hamlet of Oughtershaw, in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Thoughtfully converted from a barn to form two three-storey holiday homes and a shared ground floor field centre, these Oughtershaw cottages combine superb facilities with the character and charm of the original building to provide stylish self-catering accommodation. Contemporary, elegant furnishings tastefully blend with many of the original features, including exposed stonework and substantial beams, to produce an imaginative layout which takes full advantage of the awe-inspiring views. Both of these Oughtershaw cottages boast woodburners, king-size beds, en-suites and eco-friendly heating from Bertha, the farm’s biomass boiler, while Nethergill Farm Byre has a wonderful picture window in the first floor twin bedroom. Both of these Oughtershaw cottages can be booked together for larger parties of up to eight, who love holidaying together, but prefer some privacy at times, and the field centre, with WiFi, binoculars, a telescope and a selection of books, is a great place for spending time together. Guests of all ages are welcome to enjoy an introductory tour of the farm, feed the farm’s free range chickens and collect eggs for breakfast, as well as occasionally feeding the sheep and cattle, and see the lambing and maybe a calving in the spring. Fly fishing for brown trout is available in the nearby beck, and both properties are licensed so you can purchase bottles of wine, beer and soft drinks from the owners, then relax in lovely surroundings. A wildlife observation hide with feeding stations, and portable canvas bird hides available to hire, provide great ways to get up close to the wonderful wildlife in the area, and no light pollution means that on clear nights, the conditions are perfect for star gazing. These Oughtershaw cottages both come with a one-year membership to the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, and provide a perfect rural retreat for those wishing to get away from it all and enjoy a break in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

Buckden 4 miles; Hawes 6 miles.

Oughtershaw is in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A small hamlet located between its more famous neighbours of Buckden and Hawes, Oughtershaw shares the valley with the likes of Deepdale, Yockenthwaite and Hubberholme. This idyllic Yorkshire Dales hamlet makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale. Much of Upper Wharfedale is National Trust owned – an indication of the beauty of its classic countryside, with dry stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valleyside woodland. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking areas in the Dales, with The Dales Way passing right through the hamlet. Nearby Hawes is one of the most popular villages in the Yorkshire Dales, home to the famous Wallace & Gromit Wensleydale cheese with its working factory, museum, visitor’s centre and restaurant. To the south lies Buckden, Kettlewell, where the Calendar Girls was filmed, and the not-to-be missed market towns of Grassington and Skipton.
