  • "A beautiful, luxurious house that is perfect for a stay in the The Yorkshire Dales."

    Outside space is limited but that didn't affect us as the weather was typical of early March. The attic room was chilly and the additional heater didn't really make a significant difference so perhaps a larger one would help during winter month. The Aythgarth Falls Hotel serves really good food and has an extensive menu. We would definitely recommend this property. Many thanks to the owners for their attention to detail, which makes Hillside House extra special. Andrew.

  • "On the whole, a very enjoyable stay."

    Beautiful property only a short walk from Aysgarth Falls. We really enjoyed the modern, stylish decor while it still had the character of an older property. Very well equipped with plenty of beautiful crockery etc. Extremely comfortable beds and bedding. We had 10 people and it still didn't feel too busy. Such a lovely place. A couple of small niggles, bathrooms were cold and water spilt out of the showers soaking the floors very easily. Would still recommend.

  • "We loved our stay."

    Its in a beautiful location and the cottage was beautiful. Everything we required was there. We had an issue with the electric as a fuse shorted and it was sorted out quickly and easily. The only small issues were the top bedroom was cold but its winter and its an old house so its to be expected. Also bathrooms were cold and the shower did overflow very easily which left the floor wet very quickly. But these are minor flaws and wouldnt stop me from staying in the cottage again or reccomending my clients to stay there.

The property

West Witton 4.5 miles.

Resting in the quaint village of Aysgarth, just a short car journey from West Witton, lies this fabulous, stone-clad, four-bedroom holiday home, Hillside House.

Boasting off-road parking, bedrooms with Smart TVs, and a stunning setting within the magnificent Yorkshire Dales National Park, this excellent property welcomes eight guests for a memorable escape to the heart of rural Yorkshire.

Once you're parked up and unpacked, make yourself at home in your new lodgings by setting up shop in the fully-equipped kitchen/diner, where the chosen chef will find all they require to rustle up delicious, home-cooked meals for the whole group.

Savour your meals around the dining table before settling down by the woodburning stove in the sitting room, which comes complete with a large corner sofa and sleek Smart TV.

As day rolls into night, retreat to one of four, well-presented bedrooms, one of which is a tastefully-laid out attic room, comprising a plush double bed, elegant freestanding bath, and it's very own en-suite cloakroom - an idyllic sanctuary for you to rest and recuperate in after a long, fun-filled day.

After you've finished your morning coffee whilst planning the day ahead in the enclosed rear patio, set off to explore the local area by popping into Aysgarth village, where you and the family can spend time traversing through the scenic greens of the Aysgarth Edwardian Rock Garden before visiting the Aysgarth Falls Yorkshire Dales National Park Visitor Centre, home to cascading waterfalls and pristine woodland, making a great setting for a picnic or day out hiking.

When you've built up a sufficient appetite, the Aysgarth Falls Hotel & Restaurant offers something for every palate, whilst The Wheatsheaf Inn in nearby Carperby serves up traditional pub fare if that's more of what you fancy.

A trip to Aysgarth would be incomplete without spending time exploring the wonderous peaks and valleys of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with amazing natural landmarks such as the aquatic spots of Middle Falls and Cauldron Falls, Ingleborough Cave, and Malham Cove merely scratching the surface of what this brilliant park has to offer.

Whatever you choose to do during your stay in Aysgarth, be sure to do it from the fantastic base of Hillside House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location


Middleham 6 miles; Leyburn 4 miles; Hawes 13 miles.

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.
