Description

Nestled away in the sleepy village of Redmire, Rosemary Cottage is the ideal location for guests wanting to enjoy a peaceful holiday in the magnificent Yorkshire Dales. Redmire village is situated in Wensleydale about five miles from Leyburn and next to the village of Castle Bolton. Once featured in the British television series ’All Creatures Great and Small’, this quaint village offers a local pub and a picturesque setting. There are many established public footpaths and cycle routes that lead directly from the village into the Yorkshire Dales and through some of the nearby traditional towns and villages, including Castle Bolton, West Witton, Aysgarth, Carperby and West Burton.

Aysgarth Falls, the fabulous triple flight of waterfalls surrounded by forest and woodland, is only just over a four-mile walk away and there are riverside walks that link the upper, middle and lower falls. Perfect for visiting at any time of year, these falls are quite spectacular during wet weather as thousands of gallons of water cascade over the series of broad limestone steps. Redmire is also the terminus of the Wensleydale Railway which is a heritage railway that runs along a 22-mile track offering the most picturesque views of the local area and even seasonal Santa Special journeys.

The market town of Leyburn is only five miles away and is another excellent location for guests wanting to enjoy a quiet romantic break. Offering many excellent quality pubs, restaurants and tea shops as well as a weekly traditional farmer’s market and even a chocolate factory, Leyburn really must be visited by guests of all ages. The popular racehorse village of Middleham lies just over six miles away from Redmire. Once the home of Richard III, guests will be able to visit Middleham Castle as well as enjoy watching the world class racehorses ride through the village as they are taken to the gallops in the fields beyond. The popular local attraction of The Forbidden Corner also makes an excellent day out. Perfect for walkers, cyclists, families and friends, Rosemary Cottage offers a welcoming base in an excellent location. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

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.
