The Old School Barn - Self catering holiday barn, Preston-under-Scar, Leyburn, North Yorkshire, The Yorkshire Dales, England - Sleeps 2

The Old School Barn

The Old School Barn sleeps two guests and is ideal for couples who want to explore Yorkshire and its many attractions. Located in the pretty quiet village of Preston-under-Scar on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, The Old School Barn sits in the garden of the owner's home, Somerset House. It provides a relaxing retreat where you can soak up the fantastic unspoilt countryside views from the terrace - the perfect place for enjoying a drink or BBQ.

The friendly little village nestles in the heart of rugged beautiful Wensleydale and is not on a through route so is nice and peaceful. There are short walks around the village, along with longer walks and drives further afield. For those wanting shops, pubs and restaurants, the market town of Leyburn is only a five minute drive.

There are plenty of attractions to enjoy in the surrounding area including castles, cosy little pubs, excellent restaurants and ruined abbeys. High moors, rivers and waterfalls are in abundance and dry stone walls criss cross the landscape which is dotted with quaint stone villages and interesting little towns worth visiting.

Whether you want to relax in a beautiful Yorkshire setting or explore the many places of interest in the area, The Old School Barn provides a welcoming and comfortable holiday retreat for two.
