    “The owners were very friendly and helpful.”

    The cottage is peaceful and cosy. It was lovely to see the wildlife, and the hens and Dave the horse. Lovely walk to Jervaulx Abbey, and well placed for touring the Dales.

About the location


Middleham 3 miles; Leyburn 6 miles.

The pretty and ancient Wensleydale village of East Witton is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, between Jervaulx Abbey and Middleham, the area famous for its race horse training. A traditional old village made up of stone-built cottages and farmhouses, with a wonderful village green running the entire length of the main high street. To the west of the village lies some of the most beautiful countryside in the Dales with the hidden gem of Coverdale, one of the most beautiful, but relatively one of the more isolated, of the Yorkshire Dales. Coverham at the eastern end of the dale is dominated by Middleham Moor, Penhill and Flamstone Pin. The village boasts an award-winning pub, The Blue Lion, a gourmet pub awarded The Good Pub Guide Inn of the Year 2014. The village which is catalogued in the Doomsday Book, was originally sited along what is now Lowthorpe, which leads to the old church (St Martin in the Field), and acquired a town charter in 1307. The Earl of Ailesbury, owner of the Jervaux Estate, rebuilt most of East Witton in the early 19th century, with the houses and gardens in the same places as they were in 1627 according to an old estate map. Jervaulx Abbey was founded in 1156 and was once a great Cistercian Monastery. The Abbey now stands as a charming and atmospheric ruin, open all year round for visitors, with lovely tea rooms. Middleham with its Norman Castle, famous racing stables and pretty old market square surrounded by delightful shops, pubs and restaurants, and the picturesque Aysgarth Falls, are just a short drive away. A superb base for a walking holiday, for enjoying the delights of Wensleydale, or for touring the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors or the Lake District.
