Comfortable private room with double bed in a lovely south-facing stone terraced house with period features, 8-10 minutes walk from the centre of the attractive market town of Otley. 4 miles / 15 minutes by car from Leeds Bradford Airport. The house looks south over the gardens, across the Wharfe Valley to Otley Chevin.

The space

In the bedroom: comfortable double bed with cotton sheets, pillowcases and duvet cover. Bedside lamps and water glasses. Hand towels and large bath towel for each guest. There is a workspace and Wi Fi in the bedroom, space for luggage, a chest of drawers, hanging space and full length mirror in the cupboard, hooks on the back of the door.

Help-yourself continental breakfast is included in the price (muesli, granola, home-made wholemeal bread, croissants, tea, coffee, orange juice, yoghurt, fruit).

The house bathroom with shower-over-bath is next to your bedroom, with exclusive use for guests morning, evening and night-time. The second bathroom, with walk-in shower, is up another flight of stairs on the top floor.

Guest access

You are welcome to use the dining room and sitting room, and have your breakfast at the small table in the bay window, to enjoy the view. Feel free to use the kitchen to heat up a supermarket ready meal or prepare a takeaway. Please ask me first if you would like to cook in the kitchen.

Interaction with guests

I'm fairly new to Airbnb but I've hosted various lodgers and paying guests over the past few years. If you want to be sociable, I'm happy to talk – but I won't impose if you don't. If you'd like to explore the area, I can suggest where to go and what to see or do, and I have a good stock of leaflets and maps about local walks, and guides to local places of interest.

Other things to note

The house is back to front, with no road access at the front. Road and vehicle access is to the back door, and there is one off-street parking space in the back yard, which requires you to reverse in. Visitors enter through the back yard, which is rather uninteresting, so the house inside, garden at front and views are a nice surprise!

I've stayed before at Penny's and would definitely stay again. Probably can't write a better review than that.

Penny is a very friendly host and it was a pleasure to stay in her home. It was spotlessly clean and very quiet. I had a great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. I thoroughly recommend her home and hope to stay again.

Penny has a beautiful home in Otley and shared it generously with us. She made us feel very welcome and 'at home' with hot drinks, breakfasts etc and also gave us lots of useful information about the area. The house is 'back to front' in that you enter via the back, which is where the road is, but, once inside, you can spend some time in the front sitting room and gaze out on a lovely garden with a wonderful view.

A lovely country house with a welcoming host, comfy room and typical local northern village which accesses a beautiful moor and nearby towns of Harrogate and Ilkley, great for exploring. Thank you Penny, I can highly recommend you to fellow travellers. Blueskys Jayne
