    Dear Lesley Thanks for your feedback and I’m glad you enjoyed your stay and that Abi was able to help. Look forward to having you back at some point! All the best, Robert Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely weekend in a super location."

    The cottage was ideal for the six of us. Would certainly consider booking again. Two small points…….grass needs seeing to and a radio in the kitchen would be nice.

    Dear Bill Many thanks for your comments and very glad you enjoyed your stay. Noted on your two points, I'll definitely look into these. Kind regards, Robert (owner) Property Owner

    The only thing I’d feedback is the need for mattress protectors. We had a great stay & would definitely book here again.

  • "Very nice place."

    Relaxing and quiet location. WiFi was excellent. Getting a phone signal when out and about was hit and miss. Would like to go again next year when hopefully we have a warm summer

    Dear Kirstie My apologies for the delayed response. Thank you for your feedback, it’s appreciated. Best regards, Robert Property Owner

  • "We booked to old wool shop as a base to explore some nearby towns and it was an absolute little gem!"

    Super cute, well equipped, spotless! The village is really quiet, the views from the cottage are fabulous and the pub down the road (the three horseshoes) served great food! The owner of the cottage, John, was really accommodating and was happy for us to leave a little later on the morning of departure. The Old Wool Shop is a fabulous find and we will certainly be back!

    Dear Deborah Sorry for the slow response but I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay and I do hope you’ll manage to come back at some point. Best regards, Robert (owner) Property Owner

The property

The Old Wool Shop is a charming, three-bedroom cottage in the picturesque village of Redmire in the Yorkshire Dales.

Complete with original features and tastefully furnished and decorated throughout, the Old Wool Shop enjoys stunning views across the beautiful countryside, inviting guests for an escape to the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Stepping indoors, guests will firstly reach the inviting sitting room, complete with plush seating, a woodburning stove, and a Smart TV, offering the ideal place to unwind.

Continue into the kitchen/dining room, fully-equipped for a self-catered stay, oozing character with original A-frame beams overhead, where you can prepare and enjoy meals as a family, with patio doors providing access to the rear garden and patio area.

Take advantage of the secluded, south-facing private garden, where you can enjoy an alfresco drink or dining experience, with lovely views of nearby Penhill.

Retire to one of three bedrooms once the sun sets, selecting between a ground-floor double, an upstairs double, and a twin, all serviced by a bathroom with an indulgent roll-top bath, and a handy ground-floor shower room.

Awaken in your rural abode before travelling by car into Aysgarth for picturesque waterfalls.

Take a short walk to the fascinating and well-preserved 14th century Bolton Castle with it's bustling tea room and falconry displays or spend your days hiking and feeling at one with nature, discovering the many local beauty spots.

The Forbidden Corner in nearby Middleham is also a must for those with children.

By car head to Richmond, where you can practise your swing at the local golf club, brush up on your knowledge at the Richmondshire Museum, and take in the history of Richmond Castle, before taking in the scenery alongside the stunning Richmond Falls.

Round off your break with a tour of the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes, before following the Great Shunner Fell and touring the Cotter Force Nature Reserve, both worth packing your walking boots for.

Escape to the Yorkshire countryside at The Old Wool Shop!

About the location


Aysgarth 3 miles; Leyburn 4 miles.

The idyllic Wensleydale village of Redmire is situated in a walker’s paradise close to Castle Bolton, Leyburn and the famous Aysgarth Falls. Redmire is on the Wensleydale Railway, which features steam locomotives during the summer, and has regular special events. Castle Bolton, a mile away, is one of the finest preserved medieval castles in Yorkshire, and dates back to 1378. Much of the castle, with its mighty towers and rectangular courtyard, survived the orders to destroy famous Yorkshire castles issued by Parliament in the Civil War. Nearby Carperby was an important centre for Quakerism and the largest building today is the classically styled Friends Meeting House, which overlooks the market cross and village green. Redmire's village pub serves good food, and there is an excellent range of amenities in the nearby market town of Leyburn. What's more, Swaledale and Arkengarthdale are both easily accessible from Redmire.
