  • "My daughter and I stayed at Kitten Cottage for a long weekend."

    It was exactly as shown in the photos and was an excellent base to explore the Yorkshire Dales. The kitchen equipment provided enabled us to cook which we found useful and saved money on eating out. We had some concerns prior to arrival that the heating would be adequate but our fears were unfounded and the cottage was lovely and cosy. All in all, we would thoroughly recommend it.

  • "The cottage was well appointed but we were unhappy at the size of the seating area and especially at the arrangement of the beds which we found both cramped and uncomfortable."

    Also the shower was unsuitable for us. The traffic noise was intrusive especially in the early morning and we think this should be mentioned. The cottage is best suited to younger people and we think this should be highlighted in the description.

  • "It was everything I needed and more."

    The property had been converted in to a two bed house using the space available incredibly well. I took a load of stuff I didn't need as the owners provided everything. The bed was so soft and I slept amazingly. The location was fantastic, there was a lovely walk up the hill behind the cottage, and a short drive from York as well. I did use many of the village facilities as I was taking the chance for a lovely, restful and quiet break. I would definitely stay again. I had a fantastic time, thank you

  • "Like the Tardis, Kitten Cottage packs everything needed for a quiet break in the country side into a tiny space."

  • "Spent 4 nights at this small cottage, and thoroughly enjoyed the stay."

    Warm and comfortable with everything you need, local village shop has provisions and we used for bread, milk etc. On arrival the cottage was spotless, with a welcome basket and plenty of cleaning materials (Covid Ready). Beds were comfortable and Warm. Two local pubs do food and we ate at both of them. Lots of walks around the area and a visit to Aysgarth Falls is a must visit. Maybe Called Kitten cottage, but certainly has a big cat attitude and style - will certainly use the cottage again if in the area.

  • "The cottage was compact but spotless and had everything that we needed for a short break."

    The area is beautiful and we had some lovely walks with amazing views. The tea shop next to the cottage was no longer open.

The property

Set in the heart of the Wensleydale village of West Witton in North Yorkshire, is this charming stone-built property, Kitten Cottage.

Located near the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, this is the ideal base for two people who are looking to explore this beautiful region.

On entering the property, be welcomed into an open-plan living space which has a lovely light decor and an abundance of natural light, making this a welcoming place to unwind.

Relax the armchairs and discuss plans for the days ahead whilst the wall-mounted Smart TV with Netflix plays your favourite film in the background.

Let the electric stove keep you nice and toasty during the winter months whilst you gather in the sitting room with a meal and a refreshing glass of wine.

The compact kitchen has been well-equipped with all the necessary appliances needed for rustling up some delicious meals, or a hearty breakfast.

On the first floor you will find a twin bedroom with a velux window and plenty of rustic furnishings for storing your belongings, making this the perfect place to rest your head after a long day sightseeing.

From here, you can access the en-suite bathroom which is equipped with an elegant bath and a hand-held shower, ideal for those who enjoy a luxurious soak in the tub.

Situated in the village of West Witton, the property is next door to a tea room and convenience store where you can pick up all the essential ingredients for dinner, or enjoy a spot of breakfast here before you go exploring.

The Fox & Hounds Inn pub is a stone's throw away and is ideal for those evenings you don't fancy cooking and want to treat yourself to a well-earned meal out.

Nestled in a prime Wensleydale village near the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, you are well-placed for accessing a number of attractions nearby, catering towards all ages and tastes.

This village enjoys dramatic views across Penhill and its limestone scars and makes for a perfect base for those keen walkers and hikers among you to explore the surrounding fells.

If you're looking for a spot of history, the 14th century Bolton Castle is nearby and is a Grade I listed building, whilst the nearby town of Middleham offers Middleham Castle, said to be the remains of Richard III's childhood home.

Kitten Cottage is a wonderful retreat for two friends looking to explore all of the Yorkshire Dales delights.

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.
