Kisdon, Angram, Swaledale 

The perfect romantic retreat with private hot tub (with the best view in Yorkshire!)  and infra red sauna. Ideal for a honeymoon, birthday/anniversary celebration or just a romantic break together. Beautifully appointed, modern and stylish. Stunning panoramic views and a gorgeous solid mahogany four poster – sit in bed and enjoy the views! En suite shower room.  Sleeps 2 adults plus 1 medium sized dog (or 2 tiny ones!) at no extra charge.

Tea and views in bed. What a treat! Hot tub makes it special!

Paradise in Yorkshire! An amazing place to escape. Hot tub was very relaxing, especially with the extra bubbles! Thanks so much.

Lovely Seat, Angram, Swaledale

Gorgeous cottage with traditional exposed stone walls. Sleeps 2 adults plus 1 – 2 medium sized dogs at no extra charge. Private balcony with stunning views and cosy wood burner. Bedroom features a luxury super king bed. Bathroom with bath and over bath shower. 

We had high expectations of Lovely Seat and we weren’t disappointed. The views were unbelievable, the cottage is wonderful - nothing has been forgotten.

Thank you both for creating this little pocket of luxury. We’d love to come back in the summer (and sping and autumn!!)
