Sleeps two, no smoking. Pet friendly. Baby friendly. Hearing-loss friendly. Free wifi. Off road parking.

We booked this for our first proper relaxing weekend without our children in 10 years and we were not disappointed. The cottage is perfect in every way. You want for nothing. The setting is unbelievable - beautiful views, just stunning. The facilities are excellent - the hot tub and sauna complete the package.

Thank you  very much for allowing us to share in this unspoilt beauty. We have achieved our aim and head home well rested and truly relaxed. We very much look forward to returning.

Swaledale Country Holidays Virtual TourLovely Seat is named after the hill it overlooks and enjoys a fabulous location in the pretty hamlet of Angram. There are two pubs/restaurants within a mile, a shop in Muker (two miles away) and the lovely market town of Hawes is only six miles away.

Lovely Seat enjoys spectacular views – as featured on ITV’s Britain’s Favourite View! Enjoy peace, seclusion and tranquility – just the gentle sounds of sheep and birdsong. Breathe in the fresh, pure air and feel yourself unwind…

Pamper yourselves in the on site Leisure Suite with outdoor hot tub (with the best view in Yorkshire!) and indoor infra red sauna - great for aching joints! Imagine sipping champagne in the hot tub looking down the valley at the amazing views. We offer a booking system whereby guests can reserve private use of the hot tub and sauna, which are situated in a secluded location and not overlooked by other guests.

Relax in the cottage garden, five acre wildflower meadow with streams and bluebell dell, and small woodland. Patio furniture provided.

Bring your binoculars - the wildlife is truly special here. We’ve had mistle thrushes, swallows, field sparrows and wrens nesting in the garden and you could also spot curlews, rabbits, hares, stoats and weasels. There are no streetlights here so the stars are truly dazzling…

Enjoy fantastic walking and cycling from the doorstep. There is secure storage on site for walking gear, cycles and motorcycles.

Pet-friendly – we welcome up to two medium sized well-behaved dogs.

Baby-friendly – we welcome babies and can provide travel cot, highchair and steriliser. However the property is not suitable for toddlers due to the stairs and the drop into the garden.

Hearing Loss friendly - we are delighted to have been awarded the Sounds Good Charter Mark from Access Solutions. We can provide a ‘Deafgard’ which is a portable, battery-operated Fire and Wake-up alarm. All our televisions have subtitles.
