Description

This bungalow has been tastefully converted, enjoying the added bonus of fabulous rural views from the front and rear of the property. Additionally there is a four poster bedroom with uninterrupted views over the Dale. It is situated only a short walk from a traditional 17-century country pub serving locally sourced ales and food. The pub was the finish line of the first sprint in the 2014 Tour de France.

The area is a haven for ramblers and cyclists with beautiful walks and bike rides directly from the door. Within a short drive, there are several pubs, tea rooms and farm shops to visit. Nearby Leyburn, Hawes, Aysgarth and Kettlewell all have shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants to choose from.

Local attractions such as The Forbidden Corner, Aysgarth Falls, Hawes Rope Factory and Wensleydale Creamery, to name but a few, are all within easy reach of Mystified Bungalow.

Continental breakfast is available by prior arrangement with the owners. This can be taken indoors or on the patio at the rear of the property where the tranquillity and uninterrupted views of the Dale can be enjoyed along with a large variety of wild birds which will come to feed - spot the 2 woodpeckers! Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

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.
