Tucked away at the side of the beck in the beautiful village of Kettlewell, this bijou cottage was originally converted from a turf drying house and retains much of its character with exposed oak beams and stone walls. Kettlewell lies in the heart of Wharfedale and as such offers excellent walking, cycling and touring direct from the door in stunning scenery, which has become known as Tour De France country. The village is served with three pubs, a village shop and two tea room, all within easy walking distance and all offering a variety of food. The village also hosts a 9-day long scarecrow festival every August which attracts thousands of visitors each year.
