    The house is beautiful, the beds really comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and lovely and warm after occasional wet rides. The plumbing could be interesting, but it didn't detract from our enjoyment. I just wish I'd had a bit of time to read some of the hundreds of books! I would definitely recommend this and would happily go back again.

The property

An 18th century Grade II listed Georgian country house in the picturesque village of West Burton, North Yorkshire in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

This fabulous house is ideal for a family holiday away from it all.

Set over two floors, the house is full of charm and character with working shutters on almost all the windows.

The ground floor has three large sitting rooms, two with woodburning stoves, perfect if the group would like to split up and do their own thing.

There is also a spacious farmhouse kitchen with a large dining table, ideal for enjoying a meal with friends and family after walks in the wonderful countryside.

Upstairs there are six comfortable bedrooms all including basins along with a wet room and a family bathroom with a freestanding bath.

All the rooms have lovely views of the garden and surrounding landscape.

This grand house is situated in lovely private grounds at the foot of Penhill.

In the gardens there are delightful areas to sit and enjoy the landscape and take in the views of Bolton Castle and beyond.

Walden Beck runs through the grounds, adding to the tranquil atmosphere of the gardens in the summer months.

A short walk away is the delightful village of West Burton with its large village green, children's play area, village pub overlooking the green and the stunning Cauldron Falls.

A mile away are the impressive Aysgarth Falls.

Within twenty minutes' drive the popular Yorkshire Dales’ towns of Leyburn and Middleham offer an excellent choice of shops and places to eat and slightly further afield the picturesque towns of Reeth, Hawes and Richmond are all within easy reach.

Located in the heart of the Dales, this historic house and superb grounds is an ideal base for a memorable getaway.

About the location


Leyburn 7 miles; Hawes 10 miles.

Nestling in a hollow of the little-known Walden Valley, West Burton is a jewel not to be overlooked. This pretty and ancient village in the heart of Wensleydale is situated in truly beautiful countryside, with old stone cottages surrounding the famous broad village green. A walker’s paradise, with wonderful Dales countryside, magnificent views and the small, but spectacular Cauldron Falls still delighting visitors since the days when the great artist, J M W Turner, captured its magic. A traditional village pub overlooks the green along with a well-stocked village shop with a cafe and a butcher’s, while there is an excellent range of amenities in the nearby market towns of Hawes and Leyburn. A mile from the famous and impressive Aysgarth Falls. A delightful Dales base.
