Comfortable Holiday Home, Leyburn

This beautiful former farmhouse is set in a fantastic position in a small valley on the edge of Swaledale and is a superb location for a quiet and relaxing holiday, with fantastic long distance views across the dale. The house and attached barn have been fully renovated whilst capturing a great deal of the original character and charm with exposed beams and stone fireplace. Very comfortably furnished and extremely well equipped, the accommodation is spacious yet cosy and has the added advantage of a landscaped garden, patio and grounds with a small stream.

Situated in the northern part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the property is ideally located for touring the Yorkshire Dales. The popular village of Askrigg in Wensleydale is only 5 miles away, and the market town of Hawes in the central area of the Dales is just 9 miles. Other popular places to visit include Leyburn and Richmond, and there are lots of visitor attractions nearby. For walkers, there is an abundance of excellent walks from the cottage, through the stunning Yorkshire Dales countryside.

Offered as a great all year round destination this bustling market town is a walker’s haven and has stunning views of the surrounding countryside. With a good range of amenities, the town has a weekly market, large antiques centre and auction house. Pop by The Little Chocolate Shop which offers tours of the factory and chocolate making process, plus a café for a treat afterwards. A great local walk is the Leyburn Shawl, said to be the route Mary Queen of Scots used when fleeing, and her dropped shawl on this hill giving her direction away to pursuers.

Nearby Bolton Castle is a great family day out with historical tours of the keep and fun outdoor activities for the younger ones. Middleham Castle is another impressive fortress, once the home of Richard III and today the exhibitions and viewing platforms are open to visitors. Further notable places to visit within the Yorkshire Dales include Jervaulx Abbey and the gardens at Constable Burton Hall.

No trip to the area is complete without stopping by the dramatic Aysgarth Falls, and the River Ure is a popular site for fly fishing. The Old School House hosts a range of art exhibitions, musical and drama performances. For a totally unique experience visit the Forbidden Corner, a quirky garden full of secret underground tunnels, spooky statues and a temple to discover.


By far the largest county in the UK, Yorkshire is extremely popular for its countryside retreats as well as the bright lights of some busy cities like Harrogate, Sheffield and Leeds. Scarborough is the oldest seaside resort in Britain.

Whitby has been voted the country's best beach and has a beautiful harbour and a Dracula museum to boot (the town is featured in the Bram Stoker vampire story of the same name, as well as some of its many movie adaptations).

Yorkshire has always had a great and not always friendly rivalry with the neighbouring county of Lancashire. Some of the bloodiest battles in English history took place in these shires, as the opposing Plantagenet houses of York and Lancaster fought a bitter civil conflict commonly known as the Wars of the Roses. Nowadays the competition takes place mostly on the cricket pitch.

The two counties are among the most famous teams in this oh so important English summer game. Yorkshire has the nickname “God's own county”, a reference to the beauty of its countryside, with several National Parks formed to protect its moors and dales and rugged coastline. Cliffs of limestone, chalk and jet guard its coast against the sea. Because of its considerable size, Yorkshire is often regarded as three distinct administrative areas called “ridings” (North, West and East Riding), a Scandinavian concept thought to derive from the Viking occupation in the first century AD.
