About Mouse Manor
Welcome to Mouse Manor, a truly fabulous luxury 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, its rather like checking into your own private hotel. Foodies will love the choice of nearby gastro pubs too.
Mouse Manor has been subject to a complete refurbishment, transforming this historic Yorkshire barn into a unique and luxurious holiday home. From the heated limestone flooring to the top-quality furnishings and fabrics, no expenses has been spared in this top spec barn conversion.
All of the accommodation is on one level so it's perfect for families with young children or those with reduced mobility. At the heart of the home is a dramatic open plan living space home to 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 large SMART TV with Netflix provides the evening entertainment. Wi-Fi is 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 work-top. 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 the award-winning Campbells in Leyburn and rustle up something delicious. Settle down to eat at the charming Walnut table complete with some exquisite suedette chairs. After dinner flip the table over to reveal a full-size pool table. Fabulous!

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 rooms sits next door to a spacious shower room with beautiful Fossil 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 of course 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 thier 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. And beyond the terrace explore over 10 acres of private land including a Bluebell wood.
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.
Mouse Manor also provides a charging point for electric cars.
Mouse Manor has an idyllic location in the Yorkshire Dales. Its tucked away within a private 10-acre gated estate which includes a Bluebell wood. Set in an elevated position the property looks out onto the lush green pastures of Wensleydale with amazing views to be had in every direction.
Just a few miles way 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, jump on and head up to Leyburn for lunch before taking the train back home again!
The attractive town of Bedale is nearby 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 the charming market town of Leyburn. 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 the biggest auction centre outside of London if you fancy picking up a bargain. The nearby historic town of Richmond is similar in many ways, and has a lovely setting along the River Swale.
There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of Mouse Manor. Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle are just a few miles away and the gorgeous villages of East Witton, West Burton and Askrigg are within easy driving distance, so lots of choice 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.
And when you need to refuel stop at one of the areas many excellent gastro pubs. Our favourites include the Wensleydale Heifer in West Witton, the Blue Lion at East Witton and of course the Wyvill Arms just along the road.
