An absolute delight of a cottage. Built in 1753, Wren Cottage is a cosy, warm and welcoming detached holiday cottage. It is situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and also lies within an easy drive of North Yorkshire Moors. With very easy access from major motorway routes, the cottage is easily found in the small village of Patrick Brompton. Perfect for couples, this is the ideal destination for a quiet romantic break. There is a local pub serving superb food just a couple of minutes away, making this a great place to spend an anniversary, birthday or special occasion. Lovingly renovated and restored to a fantastic standard, Wren Cottage is packed full of character and charm with many original features, yet offers guests modern amenities and facilities too.
The ground floor offers a very well-presented lounge with exposed beams, wooden floor and a multi fuel stove in the inglenook fireplace. The kitchen is compact yet well-equipped, and leads out on to a small courtyard area with outdoor seating and table. On the first floor guests will find a small single bedroom suitable for a child, as well as a master bedroom with exposed original beams and tasteful décor. The bathroom also has quality fixtures and fittings. To the rear of the property there is a fabulous, well-maintained enclosed garden offering another private sitting area from which guests will be able to enjoy the peace and quiet of the tranquil surroundings.
Ideal for guests of all ages including couples, cyclists, walkers and ramblers, Wren Cottage is located in the peaceful village of Patrick Brompton where there are many established public footpaths and cycle paths, leading right through some of the most picturesque countryside that North Yorkshire has to offer. Only six miles away from the popular market town of Leyburn, you can visit the chocolate factory, Tennants Auction House, as well as perusing the local shops, weekly farmers market and relaxing in one of the many cafes, restaurants and pubs that are located around the town square. In the other direction and only eight miles away, you can visit the historic Georgian town of Richmond, with many attractions including Richmond Castle, theatre, river walks and a town centre bursting with activity.
A little further afield is the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, where you are surrounded by magnificent countryside and scenery. The famous racehorse town of Middleham is eight miles from Patrick Brompton and is steeped in history being the birthplace of Richard III. Guests who visit Middleham are often treated to the glorious sight of thoroughbred horses being led through the town up on to the gallops in the fields just outside. A haven for walkers and cyclists, the area is extremely popular all year round and offers fabulous views across hills and dales, as well as majestic waterfalls like nearby Aysgarth Falls and Ingleton Falls.

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.
