Shepherds Cottage is a detached, beautifully renovated cottage. Located on the fringes of the hamlet of Cotterdale, said to be "one of the hidden gems of Upper Wensleydale". Cotterdale is approached by a single track, council maintained road which runs alongside Cotter Beck and is a most peaceful and picturesque dale, nestling amongst wooded hills and open fells. The Pennine Way and Great Shunner Fell are both accessible directly on foot from the property. Although a tranquil location, with spectacular views all round and an abundance of wildlife, including red squirrels, the hamlet is only 4 miles from the bustling market town of Hawes and a similar distance from Garsdale station which is on the famous Settle to Carlisle mainline railway route.
The property has been fully renovated (2014) to a high standard, retaining many character features such as exposed stone, beams and Inglenook fireplace. The rooms are spacious with quality fittings, double glazing and spectacular views are in abundance.
On the ground floor is a lovely old stone shelved entrance porch, good size lounge/diner with Inglenook and space for family dining and a country fitted kitchen/breakfast room. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and modern four piece family bathroom.
Externally, there is a pretty walled front garden with shrubs and flower beds and low maintenance gardens to side and rear. There is a stone outbuilding which has also been renovated, offering a utility area with plumbing for washing machine, small workshop/store and wood store with the original WC. There is also private parking to the front surrounded by magnificent views..
