Description

The Sheep Fold at Pry House Farm is a semi-detached barn conversion, completed in 2006. Set within the grounds of a working farm, next to the owners home, this wonderful property is surrounded by a beautiful and dramatic landscape. Entry to the cottage is through the stone-flagged hallway, where you will also find a cloakroom, ideal for coats and boots after a day of exploring. The living room is full of character with beams, exposed stonework, flagstone floor and a large, arched picture windows looking out over the surrounding countryside. Comfortable sofas and an electric wood burner set within an original stone fireplace complete this room and make it the perfect place to sit back and unwind after a day of exploring. The well-equipped shaker-style kitchen/dining room has all you need to cook up a tasty treat to be enjoyed at the farmhouse table. A rear door leads out onto an enclosed patio, finished with garden furniture, and makes the ideal spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. The first floor is complemented by vaulted ceilings and exposed rafters allowing for a light and airy feel, and is home to three lovingly furnished bedrooms, one with the added benefit of en-suite facilities.


The bustling market town of Hawes is approximately 1½ miles away, whilst the villages of Appersett and Hardraw are within easy walking distance. Hawes with its cobbled market place and meandering streets is famous for its Wensleydale Creamery and Visitors Centre, or travel a little further afield and visit Aysgarth Falls, The Forbidden Corner, Bolton Castle and so much more. Nearby Lake Semerwater offers activities such as coarse and wild brown trout fishing, canoeing and sailing. For the outdoor enthusiast there are an abundance of walks and cycle routes available right from the door. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
The Sheep Fold can be booked together with The Stable (ref UK10271) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

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.
