The beautiful hamlet of Beckermonds is positioned in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This detached holiday cottage makes an ideal retreat from everyday life, being one of only five dwellings in this secluded location. Beckermonds, from the ‘Old Norse', means the ‘meeting of the streams'. It is here, at the confluence of Oughtershaw and Greenfield becks that the River Wharfe starts its journey through Langstrothdale, into Upper Wharfedale and then continues to define one of the most celebrated dales. Nestled in the valley, East House Farm has glorious views from almost every window. Its spacious and airy accommodation is beautifully presented and from the peaceful, south facing, lawned front garden, you can expect to see rare red squirrels and a variety of wildlife.
Right outside the door are memorable walking opportunities set amid breathtaking scenery. Your doorstep also offers private fly fishing (trout, free of charge, Mar-Sep). Contained within a 5 mile easy walking radius you'll find three quintessential dales' pubs; the George at Hubberholme; the White Lion at Cray and the Buck Inn at Buckden. Why not visit them together, in an 11 mile circuit walk? The market town of Hawes is only a 7-mile drive away and offers a selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, banks and a chemist, as well as a traditional British fish and chip restaurant. Hawes is also the home to the famous Hawes Creamery, makers of Wallace and Gromit`s favourite Wensleydale cheese. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
