    “Dog owners should be aware that there is no where for you to let a dog out, there is a grassy area next to the Fire Station where there is a bin for poo bags which is a couple of minutes walk away.”

    The cottage is beautifully furnished and well equipped, its within minutes walk from pubs and restaurants. This is the third cottage we have stayed in booked through Sykes Cottages and all have met or exceeded expectations.

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

Set over two floors, your cosy holiday home has a compact, well-equipped kitchen with Belfast sink and a lovely sitting room with original beams and a dining area set under the stairs.

On the first floor is a double bedroom which also has the feature of an original beam and views of the courtyard.

Completing the accommodation is a modern bathroom with bath and shower over.

The market town of Leyburn, known as the ‘Gateway to Wensleydale’ has a weekly market, tea rooms, pubs and shops.

Only seven miles away is the market town of Richmond with cobbled, narrow streets, a weekly and monthly farmers’ market, wonderful architecture and castle walls.
