Retaining original beams, this stone-built cottage was originally used as a stable block, giving the property its name.
It is situated next to a working farm in the pretty village of East Witton, just a few miles from the market town of Leyburn. This is a great destination for anyone looking to explore the Yorkshire Dales, with walking trails nearby, as well as Jervaulx Abbey and Braithwaite Hall. The village has an award-winning traditional pub serving seasonal local cuisine in front of a roaring fire, great for unwinding after a day exploring.
Furnished to a very good standard, this cottage is perfect for couples looking for a special break away. On entering the property, step into the stone flagged entrance hall with underfloor heating for a warm welcome. The layout of the cottage is upside down, with a ground floor kingsized bedroom. Upstairs you have the well-equipped kitchen and a separate living room with a dining area. The comfortable, cosy living room is simply perfect for lounging in an evening in front of the TV after a hearty home-cooked meal. The modern shower room, with a wet room-style shower benefits from underfloor heating, ensuring you start your day refreshed and warm.
The owner has taken careful consideration in ensuring guests receive a memorable welcome, and the personal touches add to the enjoyment of your stay.
There is so much to do from this romantic cottage, from the walks and cycle trails of the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the quaint villages and market towns including Hawes, Leyburn and Masham.

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.
