The property was well equipped and there was a lovely welcome pack of sugar, tea, milk, marmalade and fruit cake. There was washing up liquid, towels and fire logs which was lovely. Scenery was fab. A really nice cottage. We would book it again. Mrs Christa Dobson - 28th November 2017
A very comfortable cottage in an excellent location. We visited old favorite places such as Arkengarthdale, Swaledale, Wensleydale, Dentdale and Malham. A great area for walking, favourite pubs were the Bolton Arms Redmire, (must book) Coverbridge Inn, East Witton (Must visit) and the Red Lion Langthwaite (A time capsule)Sue & Dave Martin - 16th September 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.
