We are excited to be launching this magnificent property which has been awarded a quality 5* Gold grading. Relax and unwind at this perfect haven of tranquillity, located in Harmby just outside the popular market town of Leyburn in beautiful Wensleydale. This luxury stone built detached property has been completely modernised and renovated to an exceptionally high standard. The stunning interior combines a mixture of contemporary and traditional style and benefits from equally stunning views over to Middleham from the front windows, conservatory and balcony.
This high-quality property will impress at every turn, with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, with exception of the conservatory that has a wall mounted radiator. It boasts an immaculate finish inside that provides pure luxury throughout. Step first into the hall where your eye will immediately be drawn up towards the galleried landing with modern oak and glass bespoke staircase, framed beautifully by stylish feature lights and which is flooded with natural light from the apex windows above. Next, discover the superb, open-plan lounge and kitchen/dining area. The bespoke kitchen incorporates a wide range of high quality integrated appliances, together with granite worktops and a central island which doubles as a breakfast bar. You’re sure to enjoy curling up on an evening beside the traditional wood-burning stove in the lounge. You’ll also find art by renowned Dales artist Lucy Pittaway, to admire. Also on the ground floor is the charming conservatory, where you can take advantage of the views across the Dales or head out onto the wrap around balcony, which in turn takes you down to the landscaped gardens and access to the hot tub. The ground floor bedroom and en-suite offers easy access.
Upstairs, the small study area provides a laptop for guests to use. Each of the two other stunning bedrooms all feature the same quality of décor and furnishings, resulting in the ultimate sleep experience. Each bedroom is equipped with a Smart TV, Amazon Echo and their own en-suite bathroom or shower rooms. The master bathroom suite also enjoys the added luxury of an Aquavision TV in the wall, so you can enjoy watching your favourite shows whilst having a relaxing bath.
The attention to detail in Feathered Nest is second to none, offering guests a high level of luxury and elegance whilst retaining a relaxed homely atmosphere in what can only be described as a truly spectacular part of the country. The generous welcome pack will ensure that your holiday gets off to a great start.

Luxurious and stylish house, amazing views - what a wonderful way to spend a relaxing weekend!Brian Ford and Family from East and West Yorkshire - 27th April 2018
Feathered Nest is a beautiful & luxurious holiday house - definitely worth its 5* status. It was homely from the moment we walked in & was equiped with everything that you could ever want or need for a great holiday. Both the interior & exterior have been very tastefully done and all the fixtures & fittings are of the highest quality (the beds are so comfy!). The sun room has amazing views and the hot tub is very relaxing after a long walk (of which there are many in the local area). Andrew & Clare are very committed to making your stay as pleasant as possible & are extremely helpful with any queries that you might have. The welcome pack was very well received & as it was Easter, there were vases of beautiful spring flowers in many of the rooms - along with many other thoughtful touches. Mrs Lesley Smirk - 13th April 2018
thank you for a perfect location for our short break. The cottage is wonderfully well equipped and so thoughtfully decorated. Such generous hosts!Patrick, Lauren, Isla, Rowan and family - 11th April 2018
Stunning location, stunning property! Really tasteful decor and everything else.Mandy and Carl - 3rd April 2018
What a great job you've both done. We all had an amazing time. Attention to detail was perfect.Lesley, Tom and family - 30th March 2018
We've had a wonderful stay here at Feathered Nest. Clare and Andrew are so welcoming and friendly. They really have thought of everything to make this a home from home. We can't wait to come back!Dan and Steve - 12th March 2018
We stayed at The Feathered Nest in February and it was fabulous! We were blown away from the moment we walked in. The kitchen/living area is fantastic with absolutely anything you could need/want. The real log burner is so cosy, perfect for finishing off a long day of walking in the Yorkshire Dales! The rooms are gorgeous, decorated beautifully and each have their own ensuite. The beds made for an exceptional nights sleep. The views overlooking Middleham and Penhill are amazing with a beautiful sunroom to relax and enjoy them. The attention to detail was incredible, from the artwork by a local artist to the map of the pubs within the Yorkshire Dales to help plan your time away, everything has been catered for. The Feathered Nest really needs to be visited to appreciate everything it has to offer, it really is 5 star gold! Tom and Emma Raw - 7th March 2018
We absolutely loved our weekend at Feathered Nest! The most beautiful and luxurious holiday cottage, with breathtaking views of the Yorkshire Dales. We received a welcome hamper on arrival which was a lovely surprise and thoroughly enjoyed over the course of our weekend - the homemade ‘Hedgerow’ Jam was a real hit! The decor is simply beautiful and all rooms are finished to the highest standard with modern conveniences and thoughtful finishing touches. The log burner in the lounge contributed to a cosy evening in and the comfortable beds with plush bedding ensured a peaceful nights sleep. A real home from home which is highly recommended - we will certainly stay again! Nichola & Miles Beattie - 11th February 2018
When you enter Feathered Nest the spacious hallway with beautiful staircase is amazing. The whole cottage has a warm and welcoming feel, with all bedrooms offering modern ensuites (all with underfloor heating!), and the views throughout are fabulous. The décor is second to none, and everything you could possibly want or need for a restful stay is available. The boot room gives ample space to leave wet coats and muddy boots, and the kitchen is equipped with the most up to date appliances. Our teenage girls loved the coffee machine and were totally spoilt with hot chocolate! The log burner was also a winner, especially during the cold snowy evenings. There is no doubt we will be returning to this fantastic cottage in the very near future. Thank you for having us :) - 30th December 2017
At the heart of Wensleydale lies the gateway town of Leyburn, "A Town for all Seasons". With spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, unusual local shops and cafes, traditional pubs and a weekly market, it's an ideal base for walking, sightseeing, or just watching the world go by. There's lots to see and do in the town, whether it's the wonderfully quirky Forbidden Corner, the annual food and drink festival celebrating the best of local produce, the stunning Harmby waterfall or taking a trip on the Wensleydale Railway- Leyburn provides the perfect base for a Yorkshire Dales break.
The thriving village of Harmby in Lower Wensleydale is ideally located for exploring the best of what this beautiful area has to offer whilst offering a tranquil escape close to the bustling market town of Leyburn. The Harmby Waterfall is just one of a number of local beauty spots close to the village and is accessed by a footpath from the main road; the gorgeous meadows surrounding the village are perfect for leisurely walks and are just one way of reaching Leyburn's shops, pubs, restaurants and delis from the village. However, you don't need to venture to Leyburn to experience the Yorkshire Dales famous real ales, the village has two local pubs, The Old Horn Inn in Spennithorne and the Pheasant Inn,which located at the top of the village. The village is serviced by a fish and chip van every Thursday and the sense of community here is sure to give any visit a taste of the true Yorkshire Welcome the dales is so well known for.
