This pretty cottage is set in a lovely North Yorkshire village and offers delightful accommodation for a small family or a couple looking for a tranquil getaway close to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

Harmby, with its village pub and secret waterfall, is close to the delightful market town of Leyburn (1.5 miles) which offers a range of traditional shops, pubs and cafes gathered round a handsome town square. Leyburn is also home to the famous Tennants auction house. Other local towns and villages include Richmond (10.5 miles) and Middleham (3 miles) where you will find the ruins of Richard III's castle. Attractions include The Forbidden Corner (5.5 miles), Aysgarth Falls (8.5 miles) and Bolton Castle (7.5 miles). The cottage is perfect for walkers and cyclists exploring the Yorkshire Dales and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (both 5 miles), or you could enjoy a day at the races in Ripon (19 miles).


Stepping inside this lovely cottage, with its handsome double frontage, a charming entrance hall with a flagstone floor leads you through to the cosy and welcoming lounge. This light and spacious room is a perfect space for you to relax in, with exposed beams, comfortable seating, a cosy wood burner and TV. A selection of jigsaws, board games and a Wii console are also provided. Exploring further, the bright and attractively designed kitchen/diner features a lovely dining area and is fully equipped with an oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine. The bathroom is on the ground floor and features a shower over the bath and a WC. Going upstairs you will find the two cosy bedrooms. There's a beautiful master bedroom with a king size bed and views across the village. The twin room features two single beds and large walk-in wardrobes.


Stepping outside, you will find a sheltered stone patio with garden furniture, making a lovely spot to enjoy a spot of lunch or a morning coffee.

The cottage is set in a sleepy little village in Wensleydale, just outside the market town of Leyburn. Its central location makes it the perfect base from which to explore this area of the Dales. The village itself has a local pub and a secret waterfall to discover under half a mile from the cottage.

Nearby you'll find the charming market town of Leyburn, which is within a 1-mile walk. Leyburn is an archetypical slice of Dales market town life. You'll find traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gathered around the handsome town square, which hosts a busy market every Friday. Leyburn is also home to Tennants, the biggest auction centre outside of London if you fancy picking up a bargain. The nearby historic town of Richmond (10 miles) is similar in many ways and has a lovely setting along the River Swale.

Middleham, one of Yorkshire's loveliest villages is just 3 miles away. Famous for its castle (once home to Richard III) it's also home to several racehorse trainers; you will see and hear the horses being led through the village up to the gallops every day. And to top it off there’s a lovely collection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops. Just 5 miles out of the village is the fantastic attraction The Forbidden Corner. Regularly voted the best family attraction in Yorkshire, it's also well worth a look even if there are no children in your party.

If walking is your thing, the Yorkshire Dales are something of a walker's paradise. And there are plenty of options for cycling too in this Tour De France country. You can strike out literally from the doorstep and there are several walking guides available in the cottage for you to use.

There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of Tannery Cottage. Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle are just a few miles away and the gorgeous villages of West Burton (8 miles) and Askrigg (12 miles) are within easy driving distance, so there is lots of choice for things to do if you want to get out and about.

Beautifully dressed property and every utensils you could need. Loved the fact that we had Netflix as weather was awful when we visited.

Reviewed by Liz 26th April 2019

Beautiful setting and location. Spacious apart from the bathroom. A little overdone on the "stag" theme which is a shame as everything else is such a quality finish.

Reviewed by Wendy 7th March 2019

Beautifully decorated..well equipped...location is great for exploring. The neighbours are very pleasant..do be careful of the lane up to the cottage as it is quite narrow. No phone signal for vodaphone in the cottage and the Wi-Fi cut off at 12pm on the last night meaning i could not work on the Monday morning early which was very inconvenient.TaRead moreke milk and basics for arrival.I would recommend the cottage for a quiet, relaxing weekend with no contact with the 'real world'.
