- Self catering holiday cottage in North Yorkshire -
B uilt in the 1700's Cissy's Cottage is a delightful little stone built cottage of quiet outstanding character that never fails to embrace you as you walk through the door. A traditional dales cottage that still retains the best of its original 18th century features. With its open fire and beamed ceilings, a warm and cosy atmosphere welcomes you.
Originally built as a shepherds cottage, its' charm is quiet unique. In the main downstairs room with its flagged floors you'll find the open fire, that together with the storage heaters provide the warmth that is held in by the thick cottage walls and low ceilings. In this room is a sitting area with comfortable sofas, kick off your boots and relax. Beneath the side window is your dining table, eat your breakfast as you look out across the pasture and up the hill side, planning your days walk.
From the sitting room you will find a quiet unusual semi-circular kitchen which was added onto the cottage at some point. The flag floor continues into the kitchen and stone has also been used to make the crescent shaped shelves and worktops to fit the curving walls of the kitchen. Washing up in the Belfast sink, if you choose not to use the dishwasher, isn't such a task as you look out of the window for another view of the fell. There is also a drier just in case you get caught in one of those dales showers!
