Daisy Cottage is perfectly located near the historic market town of Northallerton, with Bedale, Leyburn, Richmond, Ripon, Masham and Thirsk also within close proximity. The property lies adjacent to the owner’s home and an equestrian centre, 5 minutes from the A1, making it easy to explore the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Park. With everything you could need, Daisy Cottage has two excellent en-suite bathrooms with a walk-in shower and a bath, as well as underfloor heating to add to the luxury. A wonderful multi-fuel burner is the centrepiece of the luxurious and contemporary open plan kitchen and living area.
The area is popular with walkers and cyclists, with the Tour de Yorkshire passing close by, as well as the Tour de France back in 2014. There is an unlimited amount of natural beauty right on the doorstep of this beautifully designed cottage, which has been converted from an old farm building. Wensleydale Railway is a big attraction in the area, with its tracks snaking from the lowland Vale of Mowbray to the upland splendour of the famous Yorkshire Dales. This rural railway line passes through market towns, small villages, woodland and farmland, offering a great day out in some of England’s most beautiful countryside in winter. There is so much to do in the area. Nature lovers can enjoy walks in both the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Parks, taking in beautiful countryside, from high peaks with breathtaking views to waterfalls and rivers. A little further north, the picturesque area of County Durham is also easily accessible, where you can visit the very popular market town of Barnard Castle, home to the Bowes Museum. Or travel south to the spa town of Harrogate, with its Roman baths and health spa, or the historic city of York, both of which make excellent days out.
There are plenty of things to do for all the family, such as The Forbidden Corner, which is a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises, created in a 4-acre garden in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Visit Big Sheep and Little Cow Farm, a family-run farm visitor centre in Bedale, which is a unique hands on farm experience for children and adults. For an exhilarating day out there’s Flamingo Land and Lightwater Valley theme parks, or if you prefer historic sights, you’ll love Mount Grace Priory set amid woodland in North Yorkshire. This unusual monastery is the best preserved Carthusian priory in Britain. The old city of Ripon is filled with shops, cafés, restaurants, and pubs, and also boasts many historical buildings and museums, including Ripon Cathedral, the Wakeman’s House, Studley Royal, Fountains Abbey and Ripon Spa Gardens. Beach 40 miles. Farm shop 400 yards, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.

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.
