    “Pennycress is a lovely holiday cottage and we very much enjoyed our stay.”

    It’s perfect for 2 people and the location is great- central but set back in a courtyard. Leyburn is an attractive market town on the edge of Wensleydale with great access to wonderful walks and trips. Recommended!

The property

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

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

Enter the property into the stylish and snug sitting room that is complemented by original beams.

Unwind on the sofa and put your feet up in front of the electric fire heater, or enjoy a meal at the dining table with views over the courtyard.

Relax whilst watching TV or a DVD, or spend some quiet time in the “book nook” reading a good selection of novels and magazines.

The compact kitchen is smart and has a good layout.

It is very well-equipped, housing an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge with freezer compartment.

Upstairs, the beautiful south-facing bedroom is light and inviting.

The king size bed (new in April 2021) has a supportive hybrid mattress, perfect for a good night’s sleep whilst enjoying a relaxing holiday in the Yorkshire Dales.

More original beaming here 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 on a Friday, along with a great selection of independent tearooms, pubs and shops.

The walking here is excellent, with many walks on the doorstep.

The Wensleydale Railway has a station in Leyburn with regular services between Redmire and Leeming Bar if you fancy a step back in time on a heritage Diesel or Steam train.

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

Within reach are many attractions and places to visit, including Constable Burton Hall Gardens, The Forbidden Corner, Thorp Perrow Arboretum, the ruins of Castle Bolton and the mediaeval town of 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.

Pennycress Cottage is an undisturbed retreat, with something for everyone close by.

It’s set back from the market square so that it’s peaceful, but close to everything so that you’re in the heart of the town and the surrounding countryside.
