Proudly positioned right on the green in the sleepy village of East Witton, Pear Tree Cottage is the perfect destination for guests wanting to enjoy a real family get-together in a fabulous home-from-home. Ideal for extended families, friends who enjoy holidaying together and celebrations, this end-terraced property that dates back to the 1820s has the added bonus of a converted annex called The Granary, which offers separate sleeping accommodation for 2 guests, as well as a games room, laundry area and a large, enclosed country garden.
Right in the heart of Wensleydale in the magnificent Yorkshire Dales National Park, this Grade II listed building is surrounded by miles upon miles of established public footpaths, cycle tracks and bridleways that pass through the village leading on to nearby towns and villages, which include Middleham, Leyburn, Harmby, Carlton, West Witton and more, with many fine places to eat and drink along the way. East Witton boasts an award-winning gastro pub, and a 16th-century inn famous for its real ale, Yorkshire gammon and eggs.
The Yorkshire Dales makes for a most scenic walk or bike ride, with its rolling hills, tranquil woodland, open countryside and tumbling streams. Aysgarth Falls, Moor Cote, Cover Bridge, Ellingstring and Masham Bank are certainly worth seeing. History buffs are often drawn to the former Cistercian monastery of Jervaulx Abbey, which was founded in 1156 and is now open to visitors all year round with an on-site tea room and a wide range of events. Middleham should also be high on the agenda – this famous horse racing town was once home to Richard III and Middleham Castle is steeped in history. Spend a day at the horse racing links and watch world class racehorses gallop down the track.
Guests will find an abundance of top quality local pubs and restaurants offering fresh local produce in the area. Visitors of all ages will love The Forbidden Corner which is just a few miles away, a folly-turned family attraction that has surprises waiting around every corner. The popular market town of Leyburn is only 4 miles away, with its weekly farmers’ market, along with a variety of quaint shops, tea rooms and restaurants for an evening out. All within an hour’s drive are many popular destinations including Ripon, Catterick Racecourse, York, Thirsk, Barnard Castle, Richmond and Durham. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 110 yards.
