Crag View is a 17th Century Grade II Listed south facing cottage which nestles in the picturesque village of Carlton in the heart of Coverdale, a most beautiful unspoilt dale within the National Park. Retaining a wealth of charm and character, an open fire in the lounge and tasteful decor and furnishings of a very good standard creates a relaxing country cottage to return to after a day exploring the delights and stunning scenery surrounding this delightful cottage. The garden is an ideal place to relax on warmer days and enjoy the peaceful setting with views towards Roova Crag and across Coverdale. Walks start directly from the village with footpaths and bridleways which criss cross the fields and open moorland or cycle the quiet narrow lanes winding through the valley. Carlton has a pub serving real ales and meals with a popular fish restaurant and village shop in nearby West Witton, Middleham famous for its race horses and castle, once the home of King Richard III is worth a visit along with the market town of Leyburn which has individual shops, weekly market, good choice of pubs and restaurants. Aysgarth Falls and Edwardian Rock Garden and Hardraw Force provide plenty of opportunity to discover the unique atmosphere of this stunning area along with the magnificent Bolton Castle, the Forbidden Corner and the renowned Wensleydale Creamery at Hawes.

About the local area

It's given its name to one of Britain's finest cheeses, but Wensleydale has so much more to offer. This is the valley of the River Ure, part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and a popular destination for walkers and hikers.

As well as the rolling landscape of the valley itself, Wensleydale is overlooked by the distinctive flat- topped hill of Addlebrough, above the village of Bainbridge and Penhill, which stands guard over Leyburn. Wensleydale's dramatic scenery is dotted with ancient towns and villages, offering a great range of shops, pubs and tea rooms.

Hawes, at the head of the valley, is the centre of the famous cheese-making industry as well as rope- making, while Hardraw is home to Hardraw Force, one of the highest waterfalls in England.

At Aysgarth, the River Ure tumbles down a limestone staircase at the beauty spot known as Aysgarth Falls.

There are many other fascinating towns and villages in the valley; hidden treasures abound as the Ure flows eastwards. Middleham, with its castle, was the childhood home of Richard III while at West Burton, you can visit the famous Cat Pottery.

Although a walker's paradise, tired feet can let the train take the strain with a trip on the Wensleydale Railway. Heritage steam and diesel trains run along 17 miles of line between Redmire and Leeming Bar at the eastern end of the dale.

Don't forget the famous Buttertubs Pass, a great walk that leads from Hawes and Hardraw, over a high moorland pass and down to neighbouring Swaledale.
