The pretty and ancient Wensleydale village of West Witton is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, between Leyburn and Hawes. A traditional old village made up of stone built cottages and farmhouses, West Witton enjoys dramatic views of Penhill and its limestone scars, along with Bolton Castle, lush rolling countryside and the surrounding fells. The village boasts two pubs, one of which is a gourmet pub and has been awarded the Wensleydale Heifer 2006/07 AA 'England's best seafood pub' award, as well as a well stocked village shop and a pretty green. Across the valley from the village stand the imposing ruins of Castle Bolton, while Leyburn, with its wide range of amenities and weekly market, Middleham, with its Norman Castle, famous racing stables and pretty old market square surrounded by delightful shops, pubs and restaurants, and the picturesque Aysgarth Falls, are just a short drive away. A superb base for a walking holiday, for enjoying the delights of Wensleydale or for touring the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors or the Lake District.

Previous visitors' comments about High Garth:
The house was great, very well equipped, clean and welcoming. The bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely touch, along with the fresh milk and tea/coffee. The view from the conservatory was amazing; very special. The location was ideal for our party as there were plenty of things to do for adults and children alike.

A very good property, probably the best we have stayed in and well up to your normal high standards.
Mr Fort, Newmarket, September 2012
The accomodation was amazing. My parents comment was "Its just like Escape to the Country" The view from the conservatory is breathtaking and very relaxing. The pictures do not do justice to this fabulous accommodation. The cottage was very spacious and ample room for six adults and a child.
Mrs Evans, Newport, July 2012
The Cottage itself was first class, but the location...second to none. Views from the front are wonderful and so peaceful. Being in the centre of the village too was a bonus as we could walk to the hostelries for food. We will certainly return.
