This pretty cottage is set in a lovely North Yorkshire village and offers delightful accommodation for a small family or a couple looking for a tranquil getaway close to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

A stylish and elegant two-bedroom stone cottage set in a pretty village location in Wensleydale, this handsome property boasts beautiful interiors and an idyllic setting with stunning Yorkshire countryside on your doorstep. Perfect for couples and small families alike.


The handsome frontage of this cottage looks like two properties, but it is in fact, just one. Step inside to discover a gorgeous little entrance hall complete with flagstone floors and chic side dresser; the perfect place to store muddy boots and coats after a hike across the hills. The flagstone flooring continues into the elegant sitting room. At the heart of this room a cosy wood burner crackles, lighting up the room with its warm glow. Snuggle down on a choice of two comfy sofas and watch a movie on the LCD TV or pop open a bottle of something and catch up by the fire. Wi-Fi is available if you need to connect online and a Wii console will keep the kids happy. Jigsaws and board games are provided for some offline fun too.


You'll find the kitchen/dining room next door with its attractive neutral units and chunky wooden worktops. The kitchen table sits in the middle, ready for a delicious breakfast while you plan a day's sightseeing. There's a dishwasher, large fridge-freezer, microwave and washing machine for your convenience.


Both bedrooms are upstairs, the first of which is the beautiful master bedroom with a white wooden bed and views out across the village. Next door is the charming twin room, again looking out to the village with two full-size single beds and beautiful built-in wardrobes. The house bathroom is downstairs, another elegant room with Italian-style floor to ceiling tiles. There's a bath for those post-walk soaks and a shower overhead for waking you up each morning.


Outside there's a sheltered stone patio with garden furniture, the perfect spot for lunch alfresco or a morning cup of coffee in the sun. Take a wander through the village and see if you can spot the local waterfall.

Parking: You can load and unload outside the cottage but please park the car in the car park which is 50 yards away from the house

The cottage is set in a sleepy little village in Wensleydale, just outside the market town of Leyburn. Its central location makes it the perfect base from which to explore this area of the Dales. The village itself has a local pub and a secret waterfall to discover under half a mile from the cottage.

Nearby you'll find the charming market town of Leyburn, which is within a 1-mile walk. Leyburn is an archetypical slice of Dales market town life. You'll find traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gathered around the handsome town square, which hosts a busy market every Friday. Leyburn is also home to Tennants, the biggest auction centre outside of London if you fancy picking up a bargain. The nearby historic town of Richmond (10 miles) is similar in many ways and has a lovely setting along the River Swale.

Middleham, one of Yorkshire's loveliest villages is just 3 miles away. Famous for its castle (once home to Richard III) it's also home to several racehorse trainers; you will see and hear the horses being led through the village up to the gallops every day. And to top it off there’s a lovely collection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops. Just 5 miles out of the village is the fantastic attraction The Forbidden Corner. Regularly voted the best family attraction in Yorkshire, it's also well worth a look even if there are no children in your party.

If walking is your thing, the Yorkshire Dales are something of a walker's paradise. And there are plenty of options for cycling too in this Tour De France country. You can strike out literally from the doorstep and there are several walking guides available in the cottage for you to use.

There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of Tannery Cottage. Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle are just a few miles away and the gorgeous villages of West Burton (8 miles) and Askrigg (12 miles) are within easy driving distance, so there is lots of choice for things to do if you want to get out and about.

Beautiful setting and location. Spacious apart from the bathroom. A little overdone on the "stag" theme which is a shame as everything else is such a quality finish.

Im afraid we were disappointed with the cottage. When we arrived it smelled strongly of dogs and there were dog hairs on the mat and on the sofas. We knew it was a dog friendly cottage but have stayed in dog friendly cottages before and they have not smelled or had hairs on the furniture. The locatiRead moreon was disappointing basically in a cul de sac where you are overlooked in every room. Other residents complained about the parking outside de the cottage although it wasnt a big problem to park in the car park at the bottom of the road. However on a couple of evenings that was full so we had to parks elsewhere. The furnishings in the cottage were fine. It however a basic cottage in a disappointing location in the Dales.

Response from Gorgeous Cottages:

Hi Heather, Thank you for taking the time to complete a review, we do appreciate this. The sofa was professionally cleaned the day before your arrival and the rug is new, however your comments have been passed on to the owner. We do hope that you will visit Yorkshire again and if you would like to call and speak to one of the booking agents we can discuss your requirements in detail and find a perfect cottage and location for you. Take careMaureen Hide

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.
