    “The cottage at Braidley was exactly what we were hoping for and just as the listing detailed.”

    The cottage was lovely and clean, really comfy beds, good tv with basic SKY. And the best part, the view was just amazing. Would definitely go back

About the location


Leyburn 8 miles; Kettlewell 8 miles; Hawes 18 miles.

Horsehouse is a tiny village in the heart of unspoilt Coverdale, a relatively undiscovered corner of the Yorkshire Dales. The village is home to a pub serving food and St. Botolph's Church. Many green lanes and ancient tracks still cross the fells and connect the hamlets, villages and towns which make up the major settlements in this narrow dale. The nearest market town is historical Leyburn. Dominated by its large market square, which still boasts a lively Friday market, the bustling town of Leyburn is known as the ‘Gateway to Wensleydale’, with beautiful views from its western edge across the Dale. The town has much to offer with its many craft shops, galleries and tea rooms. There are many lovely walks for all abilities in this beautiful area, as well as delightful villages to explore. Also within easy reach are many other attractions, notably the Constable Burton Hall Gardens with extensive parkland and woodland walks, the Forbidden Corner with its underground passages to explore, and of course the lovely Georgian town of Richmond with its fine castle ruins.
