Nestling in a quiet courtyard setting, just off the market square in the centre of Leyburn, this superb, stone-built terraced cottage dates back to 1751. Pennycress Cottage is an ideal romantic bolthole for a couple wishing to explore the Yorkshire Dales. A stylish living room with comfortable sofa and furnishings, dining table for two, beamed ceilings and a well-equipped kitchen add to the charm and ambience of this delightful property. On the first floor, a tastefully furnished bedroom overlooks the courtyard with a comfortable double bed and attractive bedding, perfect to relax and unwind after a day of exploring. A contemporary bathroom with quality heritage suite with bath completes this floor.
The market town of Leyburn is on the doorstep, with its weekly market and array of tea rooms, pubs, restaurant and shops. Leyburn and the Yorkshire Dales host many events throughout the year and this is the perfect place to be in the heart of it all. Known as the gateway to Wensleydale, Leyburn is within easy reach of many attractions and places to visit, including Constable Burton Hall Gardens, The Forbidden Corner, ruins of Castle Bolton and Middleham, with its Norman castle. Also in the area are Aysgarth Falls, the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, where there are many picturesque villages to visit.
Excellent walking and cycling starts from the doorstep, and The Shawl, an escarpment with magnificent views across rolling Wensleydale towards Penhill and the Coverdale Hills, is easily accessible. Walkers, cyclists, artists and lovers of the countryside will enjoy some of the finest scenery in Yorkshire. Hawes and Richmond each offer their own unique charm and are just a short drive away.
