About this property

Albion Cottage is an idyllic, stone built, double fronted, two double bedroom former mill workers’ cottage forming part of the original Low Mill, with the Dales Way passing directly to the front of the property. Close to many countryside walks and enjoying stunning views over the River Wharfe this is a gem of a property.

One enters through a paved, cottage garden into a welcoming dining area with carpeted flooring and stunning original timbers giving a hint of what is in store. The kitchen with wood effect, vinyl flooring is fitted with wooden fronted cupboards having delightful, original beams and timbers, one can imagine many happy times entertaining friends and family in this open room. A door opens into a truly charming sitting room with exposed roof timbers and a stone fireplace. One’s eyes are drawn to the glazed French doors opening onto the Yorkshire stone patio in the beautiful rear garden. To the first floor one finds a spacious master bedroom with windows affording stunning river views – just the thing to wake up to every day! A further double bedroom and modern shower room completes the first floor. Outside one finds an attractive, paved fore garden and a single garage provides parking or storage with space for a second car to the front of the property. To the rear is the absolute pièce de résistance – a
stunning riverside garden with panoramic views of the River Wharfe and surrounding countryside. This is the most beautiful setting in which to relax and entertain whilst taking in the stunning scenery and enjoying the variety of wildlife. This is a perfect spot for those looking to downsize or looking for an ideal ‘lock up and leave’ home. You can’t help but fall in love with this delightful cottage and an early viewing is essential to avoid disappointment. It is rare to find such a lovely home surrounded by open countryside yet only a short distance to the vibrant village of
Addingham, which remains one of the area’s most sought after communities, only a few minutes’ drive or a pleasant, short walk along a leafy lane.
Steeped in history, Addingham is an attractive and popular Dales Village that lies to the west of Ilkley on the banks of the River Wharfe, surrounded by beautiful open countryside, as highlighted by the Tour De France and Tour De Yorkshire coverage. The village offers a useful range of shops including a Co-op store, a post office and doctor’s surgery, various excellent inns and eateries and its own well regarded primary school. Local bus services to surrounding towns are available from the village Main Street, whereas the railway station in Ilkley, just over three miles away provides a regular commuter service to Leeds and Bradford city centres (around 35 minutes commute), providing regular connections to London Kings Cross.
