Cowling holiday cottages are a stone’s throw from the Pennine Way, in Yorkshire’s Craven district, which was recently found to be the happiest place in Britain. Surrounded by high, heather moorland, flat-topped hills and stepped skylines, a more atmospheric location for a break in Yorkshire would be hard to find. Nestled in sweeping valleys, Craven’s villages are home to cosy pubs, family-run businesses and a traditional way of life. The fields and woods around Cowling are a paradise for walking, with countless footpaths meandering past drystone dykes and barns, where the only sound you’re likely to hear is birds in the hedgerows.
Take a wander into the village centre from your holiday cottage in Cowling and you’ll discover a thriving community, with a pretty church, terraced cottages which were once the homes of local mill workers and a selection of independent businesses. In the heart of the village, the Bay Horse Inn is a charming former coaching inn with open fires and an impressive range of Yorkshire ales. A few doors away, the excellent Harlequin Bistro serves delicious British cuisine, prepared with local ingredients.
