About Tannery Cottage

A stylish and elegant 2-bedroom stone cottage set in a pretty village location in Wensleydale, welcome to Tannery Cottage. Subject to a complete refurbishment, this handsome cottage 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 2 properties, but is in fact just one. Step inside to discover a gorgeous little entrance hall complete with flagstone floors and a chic side dresser; the perfect place to store muddy boots and coats after a hike across the hills. The flagstone flooring continues on into the fine-looking 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 work-tops. The kitchen table sits in the middle, ready for a slap up 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 in-built wardrobes. The house bathroom is downstairs, another elegant room with its 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 complete with garden furniture, the perfect spot for lunch al fresco or your morning cup of coffee in the sun. Take a wander through the village and see if you can spot the local waterfall just a few minutes' walk away.

Local Area

Tannery 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, a stone's throw away, and a secret waterfall to discover just a few minutes' walk from the cottage.

Nearby you'll find the charming market town of Leyburn, which is within a 10-minute 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 is similar in many ways, and has a lovely setting along the River Swale. 

Middleham, one of Yorkshire's loveliest villages is just a few miles away. Famous for its castle (once home to Richard III) it's also home to several race-horse trainers; you will see and hear the horses being lead through the village up to the gallops every day. And to top it off there is a lovely collection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops. We love it so much it features in our Top 10 Prettiest Yorkshire Villages. Just a few 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 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 and Askrigg are within easy driving distance, so lots of choice for things to do if you want to get out and about. 

And when you need to refuel stop at one of the areas many excellent gastro pubs.  As well as the Wensleydale Heifer in West Witton there's the Blue Lion at East Witton, The Sandpiper Inn at Leyburn and many more, all within a short drive of the cottage.
