    “A very comfortable house which had everything we needed, apart from the lack of another bathroom for the amount of folk it caters for.”

    We did have problems with the toilet off and on and it was a bit of an inconvenience having this toilet out of order in the only bathroom in the house! Gorgeous views from the property and pleasant grounds. Would certainly book again. Bedding and towels WHITE no greyness!

    Thank you for your feedback, the third bathroom is something we are looking at for the future. Being a Bank Holiday, we were unable to get the plumber there until the Tuesday, but by then the en-suite push button flush on the toilet had released itself. The other Two toilets were in full working order throughout. We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Pinehurst. - Sykes owner relations

About the location


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.
