West Close Farmhouse is home to two comfortable, 3 star holiday cottages, converted from barns, to provide accommodation for four guests or eight if both are rented together. Sitting at the very heart of Coverdale within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the two bedroom cottages are relaxing country retreats each boasting a log burning stove for cosy winter evenings and benefitting from a biomass heating system. They both enjoy breathtaking views over Coverdale and beyond to the North York Moors. Each cottage has a conservatory and patio with barbecue area, allowing guests to enjoy the fabulous views and stunning scenery at any time of the year from both inside and out. There is also a large garden available for guests to enjoy.
When both cottages are rented together guests also have the free use of the Granary Dining Room (by arrangement) allowing the whole party to dine together.
