The property

This delightful stone-built terraced cottage dates back to 1751 and is situated in pretty courtyard, just off the market square in the town of Leyburn.

With character and charm throughout, Pennycress Cottage is an ideal romantic bolthole for a couple wishing to explore this area of Yorkshire.

Enter the property and discover the compact but well-equipped kitchen, housing an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge, allowing you to prepare sumptuous feasts when you're not dining at a fine restaurant.

Unwind in the lovely sitting room, boasting character features such as the original beams and quaint dining setting, along with a sofa and TV so you can keep up-to-date with your favourite programmes.

As you tire, head to the first floor to rest in the bedroom, complete with a double bed and further original beaming that showcases the age of the property.

Completing the accommodation is a contemporary styled bathroom, perfect for a brisk morning shower or a soothing bath after a day of walking.

The market town of Leyburn, known as the ‘Gateway to Wensleydale’ has a weekly market, tearooms, pubs and shops, tending to all of your self-catering requirements.

Only nine miles away is the market town of Richmond with cobbled, narrow streets, a weekly and monthly farmers’ market where you can source local goods, plus wonderful architecture and castle walls to explore.

Within reach are many attractions and places to visit, including Constable Burton Hall Gardens, The Forbidden Corner, ruins of Castle Bolton and Middleham, with its Norman Castle.

Also in the area are Aysgarth Falls, the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, with pretty villages to visit and of course an abundance of walks and cycle routes.
