  • “This was a lovely cottage for the two of us.”

    I think it is more suitable for two rather than four occupants. On arrival the cottage was spotlessly clean. Some lovely walks from the doorstep. We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in a lovely cottage.

The property

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main road, in the Wensleydale village of West Witton, is number 10 Old School Close.

With access to the Wensleydale Hiefer gastro pub, just a 2-minute walk away and the Yorkshire Dales right on the doorstep, enjoy a well-earned holiday to go as a couple or for small families.

The entrance hall leads through to the living room, which is flooded by natural light streaming through the bay window.

Wrap yourselves around the warmth of the open fire and use the dining space to eat your home cooked meals at.

The ground floor is complete with a nicely appointed kitchen to the rear and a cloakroom.

Upstairs the master bedroom boasts a king-size double bed with views over the stone-built village and the twin (zip/link) bedroom overlooks the cul-de-sac.

This is the ideal setup for families, couples and friends alike.

They are both served by the family bathroom, where you can soak in the bath tub or refresh under the shower after a day exploring the luscious green countryside and surrounding fells.

The exterior of this cottage benefits off-road parking, a small, enclosed front garden and a rear, enclosed patio, where you can sit out on a warm summer's evening with your favourite tipple.

West Witton enjoys two pubs, one of which is award-winning, along with a well-appointed shop and verdant green.

The commanding ruins of Bolton Castle tower over the surrounding Dales, on the northern fringes of the village.

And nearby, Aysgarth Falls offer lovely woodland walks and cascading waters.

There is so much to see and do in the area, making this an excellent base to choose for your next walking holiday in North Yorkshire.

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.
