See Photos and Description of Holiday Cottage Accommodation: The Curlews, Langthwaite, Near Richmond, North Yorkshire

The Curlews is a delightful traditional stone terraced cottage providing comfortable holiday accommodation in the peaceful village of Langthwaite in Argengarthdale.

Ideal for the walker and cyclist with an abundance of routes for all abilities directly from the door.

The village and surrounding area are also perfect for families with children. There are a large variety of activities and visitor attractions on offer throughout the year.

Langthwaite is part of the Yorkshire DalesNational park, and area of outstanding natural beauty. The village is well known for its use as a film set in 'All Creatures Great and Small' and A Woman of Substance'. The characterful Red Lion Inn is just 200yds away and the very popular CB Inn is just ten minutes walk up the road (or through the fields) - notorious for excellent food.

The cottage is also a very good base for the tourist, with easy access to the Dales, Lake District and even Whitby on the East Coast.

The cottage has been fully modernised and yet retains a great deal of its character, with flagstone floors, feature Inglenook fireplace and beamed ceiling in the lounge. There is a well equipped kitchen, two good sized bedrooms (one double, one twin) and a family bathroom. This holiday cottage has been very comfortably furnished throughout, and provides excellent holiday accommodation in a quiet and relaxing position, with a pleasant outlook to the surrounding hills and fells. All wood and coal is provided for the woodburning fire in the lounge. Bedlinen for four people is also provided.

Accommodation in detail:

Ground floor:

Lounge/dining room with Inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove.

Kitchen with Belfast sink, Welsh dresser, electric oven with ceramic hob and grill, microwave oven and fridge.

Bathroom with electric shower over the bath, WC, hand basin heated towel rail and shaver point.

First floor:
Spacious double bedroom with original cast iron fireplace. Easy chair and two seater sofa for added comfort and ample storage space.

Good sized twin bedroom with handbasin, plenty of storage and two windows making it very light and sunny.


Very pleasant small flagged seating area with bench and flower pots at the front of the property.

The cottage is located on a very quiet lane leading to a field with a footpath. The lane is access only to two other properties so provides a very safe environment for guests with children or pets.

Coal store opposite the cottage. This is also used for storage of additional garden chairs and can also be used for storage of one bike. An additional bike can be safely kept in the alleyway behind the cottage. We would recommend however that good quality locks are brought for extra safety.

Parking for the cottage is 2 minutes away at the centre of the village. Loading and unloading can take place outside the front door but then the car must be moved to the parking place to allow access in the lane.
