Tryst Cottage is a 1750’s stone built 2 bedroom cottage in Ingleton, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park

The cottage is situated on the edge of the village centre on a minor road, which runs at a 3 degree incline.

The nearest bus stop is approximately 300 yards (270m) away at the Ingleton Tourist Information Office situated in the main Ingleton car park. However, there is a steep incline from the road into the car park.

There is car parking for up to 2 medium size cars at the rear of the cottage on tarmac. The tarmac area is level and flat.

The tarmac driveway to the rear parking area runs between the stone side -wall of the cottage, and the stone boundary wall, and is irregular in width. The minimum width of the drive is 6 foot 0 inches (1m 80).

The side entrance doorway to the cottage is served by an automatic light which activates when movement is detected in the area and switches off after a couple of minutes. There are other external movement lights in the outside area.

The front doorway to the cottage is a standard 30 inch x 80 inch door (76cm x 2m) with 2 inch (5cm) step up rise and weather lip. The door handle height is 40 inches (1m). There is a street lamp at the edge of the driveway.

The door openings are low in some doorways, as it is an old cottage.  

There is good colour contrast between the furniture and floor coverings throughout the cottage. All carpets are well fitted and any rugs have clearly contrasting colours to ensure maximum visibility.
