About West Close Cottage

West Close Farmhouse is home to two comfortable 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.

Within easy driving distance of the market town of Leyburn; Middleham, with its horse racing connections and historic castle; and Masham with its very own breweries, there are plenty of things to see and do in the surrounding area.

Within the locality: There are plenty of local walks and easy access to the Yorkshire Dales walking network with miles of wonderful walks; Cycling on the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway; Pubs - The nearest is less than a mile away at Carlton (community pub) and there are pubs at Middleham (four miles) and West Witton (two and a half miles); Leyburn and Middleham are four miles and offer a good selection of interesting shops. The cottages are within easy access to York, Ripon, Harrogate and Durham.
