  • One of a pair of quaint and traditional stone-built cottages in the Yorkshire Dales
  • Offering glorious, picturesque views of the countryside of Coverdale
  • Beautifully converted, the cottage has original exposed beams and stonework

Property code: OC-DS153

An imaginatively converted former farm building, the cottage retains plenty of its cosy original character, and makes a welcoming holiday home for couples, friends and smaller families exploring the northern reaches of the Yorkshire Dales. Set in a fabulous spot on the edge of the picturesque hamlet of Melmerby, the cottage enjoys a peaceful, secluded position next to the owner’s former farmhouse. The nearby market town of Leyburn is just 5 miles away, has some great places to eat and drink, and makes a great base for exploring the moors, valleys and woodlands of this idyllic region. Popular attractions include the ruins of Richard III’s Middleham Castle, the Forbidden Corner in Tupgill Park and Jervaulx Abbey, all within 7 miles.

Entering this picturesque getaway, you will find a light-filled conservatory with seating, providing an ideal space for reading a paper and enjoying the view over the garden and towards the Dales. The delightful lounge/kitchen/diner provides a relaxing main living space. The lounge features a beamed ceiling and a wood burner set in an impressive stone fireplace, perfect for a cosy night in with a good book or an old movie. The dining area is ideal for getting together to enjoy a homemade meal or hearty breakfast, and leads round into the stylishly designed and fully equipped kitchen. A short flight of five steps leads up to the two tastefully decorated bedrooms: a charming twin room and a sweet double room, along with a refreshing bathroom.

Stepping outside, the large garden is shared with the neighbouring cottage and has plenty of space for children to play. There’s also a private courtyard patio with steps and several seating areas, providing an ideal spot for taking in the surrounding countryside as you sip a morning coffee or dine alfresco.
