    “Cosy cottage for Christmas”

    Our stay in Myrtle Cottage was just perfect. Aileen and Colin have thought of everything you could possibly need. Once you close the door you could hibernate from the world, no need for a car from the moment you arrive. We completed one of the vast array of walks which were suggested from the front door which was easy to follow and helped shift some Christmas calories!

    Our stay in Myrtle Cottage was just perfect. Aileen and Colin have thought of everything you could possibly need. Once you close the door you could hibernate from the world, no need for a car from the moment you arrive. We completed one of the vast array of walks which were suggested from the front door which was easy to follow and helped shift some Christmas calories! The added bonus of going at Christmas was the cottage was beautifully decorated which included a gift under the tree as well as one in the fridge The locals are a delight and made us feel really welcome especially in the local pub - Fox and Hounds. We popped in there a few times, including Christmas Day, for a couple of pints of the local ale, a must try for anyone! We would certainly recommend this delightful cottage as the perfect base for a chillaxing holiday or as a base for exploring the beautiful countryside. On our list for a return visit

The property

A stone-built, terraced cottage located on the outskirts of the pretty little Wensleydale village of West Witton.

Skilfully renovated, the property is cosy and warm and full of character and charm with a real Dales personality.

There are two bedrooms; the double has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, whilst the single is cosy and stylish, and both are served by a modern shower room.

This West Witton cottage features a spacious living room, complete with a cosy woodburner and original oak beams, offering an ideal place to curl up by the fire and look forward to the evening’s fare after a day out on the nearby fells.

The modern kitchen, equipped with every home-from-home convenience, leads to an enclosed rear area with raised decking, complete with garden furniture, barbecue area and panoramic views of Pen Hill, the highest point in Wensleydale.

This delightful West Witton cottage has several walks leading from the door, including the challenging Pen Hill and walks across the moor to Carlton in Coverdale.

The historic market town of Richmond is just a short drive away with its interesting castle, theatre, military museum and wonderful architecture.

The popular Wensleydale town of Leyburn can also be found within a short drive, offering a choice of tea rooms, quaint gift shops and convenience stores, and provides the entrance to the stunning Wensleydale countryside, with its green rolling hills and dry stone walls providing shelter for the thousands of iconic Yorkshire sheep that graze on the hillsides.

Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater and Hardraw Force, England's highest single drop waterfall, are also all within easy reach of your West Witton cottage.

An ideal West Witton cottage and a perfect romantic retreat for those wishing to enjoy fine country living, beautiful walks and the tranquillity of this Dales location.

About the location

WEST WITTON

Middleham 6 miles; Leyburn 4 miles; Hawes 13 miles.

The pretty and ancient Wensleydale village of West Witton is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, between Leyburn and Hawes. A traditional old village made up of stone-built cottages and farmhouses, West Witton enjoys dramatic views of Penhill and its limestone scars, along with Bolton Castle, lush rolling countryside and the surrounding fells. The village boasts two pubs, one of which is a gourmet pub and has been awarded the Wensleydale Heifer 2006/07 AA 'England's best seafood pub' award, as well as a well stocked village shop and a pretty green. Across the valley from the village stand the imposing ruins of Castle Bolton, while Leyburn, with its wide range of amenities and weekly market, 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.
