    Thank you very much for your feedback. The property boiler runs on oil and the smell was due to the oil leak in a pipe, which carries oil to the boiler, outside the property. Thank you very much for pointing it out, it is fixed now. I always provide my guests all my contact details so that they can contact me if they have any issues with my property, so that the issues can be resolved quickly and my guests can enjoy their stay. - Sykes owner relations

About the location

THORNTON RUST

Aysgarth 2 miles; Hawes 7 miles.

The idyllic Wensleydale village of Thornton Rust is situated high on the south side of the Ure Valley, just two miles from Aysgarth and three miles from Bainbridge. Thornton Rust is a quiet and peaceful backwater, approached from either side by a winding country lane which opens out unexpectedly to a pretty village of wide, grass verges, stone cottages and panoramic views of Wensleydale. The area is a walker's paradise and includes the well known tourist attractions of Aysgarth Falls and the impressive Bolton Castle which dates back to 1379. Aysgarth Falls have attracted visitors for over 200 years, famously Ruskin, Turner and Wordsworth all visited and enthused about the 'falls' outstanding beauty. In the 19th century nearby Aysgarth was a staging post and many a traveller would make their way down to view the falls from the bridge. Today, many will recognise the Upper Falls from the film Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves. In the nearby Freeholders' Wood, where the ancient art of coppicing is still carried out and visitors will find hazel, ash and wild cherry, among others. The woodland is carpeted with wildflowers in spring and is home to over 120 species. An excellent holiday location for walkers, offering a great base from which to explore both Wensleydale and Swaledale, with beauty spots in the area including Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater, castles at both Bolton and Middleham and of course, Hardraw Force - England's highest single drop waterfall at 99ft! There are also lots of interesting market towns and villages to visit, including Hawes, Leyburn and Bainbridge, to name but a few.
