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 in the 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 spectacular views over Coverdale and the North York Moors beyond. Each cottage has its own conservatory and patio with barbecue area, allowing guests to enjoy the wonderful 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.
