About & Contact

Gamekeepers, real rural luxury in North Yorkshire!

A luxurious stone-built cottage with double doors from both the kitchen and the lounge lead on to a south-facing patio and suntrap with a secure garden overlooking grazing sheep. Individually styled with a blend of antiques and modern furniture. Beautiful interiors with comfy chairs and a large sofa,with squishy cusions, a wood burner, beautiful hand-crafted kitchen/diner with granite surfaces and well stocked cupboards.

Gorgeous Gamekeepers Cottage, is a two storey, 3 bedroom stone built property, very tastefully decorated to a high standard using Eco Friendly paint throughout.

The bespoke fitted kitchen with granite worktops has well stocked cupboards from cake baking to Champagne sipping, every you need is there.Whilst the lounge and kitchen are seperate, they have been recently re-decorated to 'flow" into one another. With some new upcycled furniture the old blends with the new perfectly. A Smart TV is a great addition for those movie nights by the fire.

With stunning views of the rolling North Yorkshire countryside from a private, enclosed and very sunny garden. You can relax and watch the sun go down and the stars come out.

Both ground floor bedrooms have thier own ensuite shower rooms and TV. Whilst the upstairs comprises of a mezzanine with study area, a large luxurious master suite, a family bathroom, with a walk-in shower and seperate bath.

We provide a locally sourced Welcome Pack which includes milk, butter, cheese, bread, wine and Free Range eggs when our girls are laying.

With our Master Cancel Policy, you can cancel for any reason, at any time from 60 days upto 2 days before the start of your holiday, so you can book with confidence.This doesn't cover you for the last 2 days before arrival, so we would still recommend that you get UK travel insurance ( just in case you were unable to travel at the last minute, due to health reasons for example), but at least it does give peace of mind,and you can book with confidence.

Gamekeepers formed part of the estate owned by Lord Lucas. In 1881, Francis Holgate the Gamekeeper to Lord Lucas lived in the original house. Hence the name Gamekeepers.

Relax and unwind at our Gorgeous Gamekeeperrs!

Reviews for Gamekeepers Cottage at Wigglesworth House and Cottages

Meet the owner

Louise Mc Aneny

We purchased and took over the running of Wigglesworth House & Cottages in 2015. Having lived overseas for 20 years, raising our teenage children, the time was right to relocate back to the UK. One step into Wigglesworth House and a tour around the gorgeous cottages and we knew we had found our forever home. The previous owners created the superb cottages and we were only too happy to continue the business adding our own mark along the way. Gamekeepers has had a makeover during lockdown. We even took on the resident goose adding 3 of our own. Our young hens provide delicious eggs and our younger guests love egg collecting! Our Nigerian Dwarf goats, Nettie & Nando, arrived in the Winter of 2017. Hattie our 4 year old flat coated retriever and Piper our 3 year old Golden retriever love having guests to fuss over them. Stephen continues his Global role but is fondly known as "the groundsman" when he is around. Our "children" are now at university and beyond. But love coming home to the peace and quiet of the Dales. Louise runs the cottages and is a very happy Yorkshire lass who is blessed to have returned 'home'.
