On the northern fringes of the town, in an area known locally as Paradise Fields, close to the Black Sheep brewery are a group of houses and cottages that were once commercial premises associated with brewing and used as stores for grain and hops.

Dairy Cottages were once owned by Theakstons, the famed local brewers, and were sold to the local dairy to be used as part of the dairy production with milk being stored in the extensive cellars below until the 1940’s. The terraced cottages and cellars were converted to dwellings in the middle of the last century and have recently been renovated to modern standards.

Five stone steps lead to the front door of the cottage which opens into a cosy lounge with open beamed ceiling, exposed masonry wall with original oak lintels and wood-burning stove with slate hearth. Through the lounge is a well equipped fitted kitchen with open beamed ceiling and laminate floor. Stairs rise from the lounge to a double bedroom and a single bedroom, both with exposed beams and a fully tiled bathroom with bath, shower, washbasin and toilet which has a vaulted ceiling with a roof-light. At the front of the cottage is a gravelled area which can be used for parking or sitting out to enjoy the afternoon sunshine.

The cottages are adjacent to courtyard fronting the White Bear Hotel which is still a flagship pub for Theakstons with the Black Sheep Brewery and visitor centre just around the corner.

This is a delightful little gem of a cottage which has been renovated in a traditional dales style. Providing an essence of past times with modern comforts and sympathetically furnished to allow its character to stand out. An honest little cottage situated in a small but lively market town which provides a very high standard of accommodation.

Duvets and pillows are provided with linen and towels included in the rent.

Electric storage heating, under-floor heating in the bathroom, fuel for the stove and electricity all included.
