Hill House Cottage, Winton is a detached 3 Bedroom former farmhouse which provides comfortable, cosy self catering holiday accommodation for up to 5 guests.
We have spent the last year renovating the cottage from top to bottom to a very high standard using local craftsmen; bringing the cottage up to modern day living standards but retaining and sometimes exposing new character to the building to provide a unique holiday experience.
We have furnished the cottage with high quality beds and bedding to ensure a comfortable night's sleep and provide both a large upstairs shower room and downstairs wet room with on demand hot water supplying the rainwater and traditional shower heads for a wonderful showering experience.
The spacious yet cosy lounge area has two leather sofas and an armchair which are perfect for relaxing in front of the log burning stove after a long day of cycling, walking or sightseeing.
The kitchen boasts a modern ivory coloured kitchen with silestone worktops and with all the usual features you would expect including a Stoves oven, a hob, extractor, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for cooking and eating and has views over the local countryside if you fancy washing up!
The dining area has a large dining table for up to 6 guests with an expose stone feature wall and patio doors with views extending to the local fells and Tallbridge. Both rooms benefit from underfloor heating.
We have retained the beautiful original stone staircase to retain the character of the cottage, for this reason we advise against booking for children under 10 years of age, not because they are steep but simply because of the hard stone surface of the stairs. Safety and protection of our guests us of paramount importance to us.
The master bedroom has bags of character with exposed original wood flooring and a stone window seat giving way to views over the local countryside and Pennines. There is a luxurious king sized bed, fitted wardrobe with large shelf and hanging area, dressing table with mirror and beside tables
Bedroom 2 is a generously sized bedroom with twin beds, again with a characterful exposed original timber floor and stone window seat with magnificent countryside views. There is also a fitted wardrobe, dressing table with stool and bedside table.
Bedroom 3 is the smallest of the three bedrooms with the most character. There is a single bed, chest of drawers, clothes hanging area and bedside table. The window gives views over the the farmyard and onwards to the local fells and Tailbridge.
To the front of the property there is off road parking for two vehicles.
To the rear of the property there is a large sun terrace and lawn area which is a real sun trap and ideal for eating out, sun bathing or simply relaxing and taking in the wonderful views. Through field, to the rear of the property runs a footpath which makes its way to Kirkby Stephen and was a route taken by Wainwright as described in one of his books.
For those who enjoy wildlife we receive visits from red squirrels and hedgehogs and the sound of woodpeckers and owls are often heard from the large beech trees in the field.
Hill House Holiday Cottage is the perfect base for exploring the Eden Valley, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks whether on foot, by bicycle or by car.
Visitors return year after year to enjoy the scenery and visit the iconic landmarks of this beautiful part of the country.
