Contemporary family holiday cottage set within the picturesque Yorkshire Dales boasting luxurious touches throughout including an indulgent hot tub, sauna and pool table for an unforgettable trip.

Discover a unique and luxurious holiday cottage set in an elevated position in beautiful Wensleydale. This gorgeous barn conversion has the wow-factor in every room, and with facilities like an outdoor hot tub, infra-red sauna and pool table, it's rather like checking into your own private hotel. Foodies will love the choice of nearby gastropubs too.

From the heated limestone flooring to the top-quality furnishings and fabrics, no expense has been spared in this property. The accommodation is on one level and at the heart of the home is a striking open-plan living space with the lounge, kitchen and dining area. Exposed oak beams and trusses overhead remind you of the building's heritage.

Make your way over to the lounge where you'll find a large wood burner keeping everything nice and toasty. Settle down on one of two comfy sofas and enjoy the glorious views across Wensleydale from the floor-to-ceiling windows. When darkness falls a Smart TV with Netflix provides the evening entertainment. Wi-Fi is also provided if you need to catch up online or post about how gorgeous your accommodation is. French doors lead out to the terrace from here.

At the other end of the room is the stylish and contemporary kitchen with its ivory units and sleek granite worktop. You'll find a ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge with ice-box and a microwave. There's a Nespresso machine for your morning coffee (pods not included) and a Nutri-bullet for whizzing up healthy juices.

Time for dinner. Pick up some excellent Yorkshire produce from one of the delis in Leyburn and rustle up something delicious. Settle down to eat at the charming walnut table complete with some exquisite suede chairs. After dinner, flip the table over to reveal a full-size pool table.

There are two generous bedrooms in this luxury cottage. The master bedroom has a king-size bed to retreat to each evening and a wall-mounted Smart TV if you enjoy a spot of morning telly in your pyjamas. This room also boasts a stunning en-suite bathroom with an elliptical bath and infra-red sauna. With its state-of-the-art chromotherapy LED lighting it uses the science of colours to stimulate health and harmony in the body.

The second bedroom is configured as a twin room, but if requested, can be set up as a super-king. It also enjoys its own wall-mounted Smart TV. This room sits next door to a spacious shower room with beautiful limestone tiles and a huge walk-in monsoon shower.

There is much to love outside this gorgeous holiday home. The star of the show is the hot tub with its views across the surrounding countryside. Warm and ready for you whatever the season, sinking into the soothing bubbles is a sheer delight - the owner would ask all guests to bring along their own shoes to get from the cottage to the hot tub.

The large paved terrace is also home to a wooden bench-style seating area, perfect for al fresco picnics or BBQs on those balmy summer evenings. Walkers and cyclists will also appreciate the separate boiler room to the rear of the cottage which is perfect for storing and drying out walking boots/clothes, as well as providing secure storage for bikes. The cottage also provides a charging point for electric cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • Property on one level - suitable for reduced mobility
  • 2 bedrooms: 1 king-size and 1 twin (can be configured as super-king on request)
  • 1 bathroom with bath and WC, 1 en-suite shower room with WC
  • Oven, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher.

The property enjoys an idyllic location in the Yorkshire Dales. Set in an elevated position, the cottage looks out onto the lush green pastures of Wensleydale with amazing views to be had in every direction.

Just over 1 mile away in the village of Finghall, there is a tiny rural train station where you can hop aboard the Wensleydale steam trains. Heaven for kids and rather delightful for adults too, you can head up to Leyburn for lunch before taking the train back home again.

The attractive town of Bedale is 7 miles away and is worth a visit. Stop for a coffee before making your way around the town's antique shops. In the opposite direction, you'll find Leyburn (4 miles), an archetypical slice of Dales market town life. Here you'll find traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gathered around the handsome town square, which hosts a busy market every Friday. Alternatively, visit the historic town of Richmond (11.5 miles) which has a tranquil setting along the River Swale.

There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of the property. Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle are both under 11.5 miles away and the pretty villages of East Witton, West Burton and Askrigg are all under 16 miles, so there are lots of choices for things to do if you want to get out and about. If walking is your thing, the Yorkshire Dales are something of a walker's paradise and you can strike out from the door of this luxury Wensleydale cottage. And there are plenty of options for cycling too in Tour De France country, with a myriad of gastro pubs to stop off at along the way.

This property is personally managed by Marion.

This is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. I could quite easily give this cottage a 10/10 if a few luxuries were added. To have a hot tub, it would be lovely for bathrobes to be provided.

Although Netflix and Prime are advRead moreertised, you have to have your own account to watch them. Only 3 wine glasses were provided, there were 4 of us staying, (although the owner did provide one on the 2nd day). A full height shower would be beneficial in the en-suite.

The location of the cottage is idyllic, peaceful and quiet. We did have a few problems whilst there which when you are paying as much as we did for a short break was a little diasapointing.These were:A set of 3 rusty pans which you could not use, although once the owner was informed he went straight out and bought a new set, these pans had obviousRead morely been like that for a while so not only had previous guests not informed him the equipment is obviously not checked regularly.Only 3 wine glasses, even though there were 4 people staying as above.No logs for the fire on arrival which we were told would be brought later but did not arrive until we chased for them.On arrival we had 1 and abit toilet roll between us all, again told that somewuld be put in the boot store but we ended up buying some.We were unable to use the hot tub for the majority of the stay as it was too cold, were told on arrival that the hot tub would not be hot enough as it had just been filed again, whilst we appreciate that cleanliness is utmost this was again not what we were expecting. We were only able to use the hot tub on Saturday afternoon and as two of us were unable to stay on Sunday, the hot tub was not hot enough again until the owner came back and turned the hot tub on late on Sunday when you had booked to use all facilities this was again disappointing, we haven't stayed anywhere before where this has happened.The cottage is nice and in a good location, on first impressions it is modern and new but there are definitely some issues with attention to detail.Although the owner was very nice these are all little things that should be sorted before guests arrive.

The bedrooms were really cold due to the underfloor heating NEVER coming on during our stay. Even though a workman was sent.One of the bedside lamps tripped out on the first night, that may have had something to do with it. The owner had to reset something and hoped after that it would be ok.The electric towel rails came on but, the underfloor didn't. After letting the owner know that we were cold they did offer us some more logs and although that helped with heating the living area, the bedrooms were still cold. On the night before we left the owner brought 2 portable heaters, not exactly in keeping with a luxury stay.Been in loads of hot tubs before and this one never seemed to get to a decent temperature, Another couple of things that we feel would improve the property is a freezer, a portable fire guard when children are staying, and the chains on the blinds in the big window could be a little higher as they were just at the height of my toddlers neckAlthough when leaving we sent the owners a text to say the break had been marred with disappointment they never replied.However, I would stay here again but would expect everything to be perfect

There were no cloths or cleaning sprays to wipe surfaces down. The dishwasher was so small that you could barely get the crockery in from one meal.In the bedroom there was nowhere to put your clothes when you get undressed, only the floor. The floors are stone making them very cold if you need to get up in the night, but there was just one rug on one side of the bed.In the main bathroom, a mug to put your toothbrushes would have been useful, also when we arrived the main bathroom didn't have any soap. The bath, although splendid to look at, was totally impractical for older people - nothing to hold onto and no bath mat. Also for the "gorgeous" cottage I would have expected bath oils/soaps. There wasn't even shower gel.The armchairs in the living room look lovely but are very low and offer no support at all. This is fine if you are a young person, but not if you are older.You have a hot tub and a sauna but no washing machine!All in all, a beautiful place and what could be a really "gorgeous" cottage, but it is lacking in the not just the finer details, but a lot of the basic ones as well. Paying the sort of money we did, it did not live up to our expectations related to the price. We have done many cottages in recent years and although it sounds as though we have done nothing but complain above, these are meant to be constructive criticisms to improve the value for money for future clients.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
