About The Palins

This country cottage is a stunning bolthole for a couple to explore from

The Palins is a charming country cottage, newly renovated to be luxury holiday accommodation. Step straight inside this stone one-bedroom Yorkshire Dales cottage into the open-plan living room and kitchen. Guests can eat from the breakfast bar styled with high leather stools, or head out to one of the excellent Yorkshire pubs or cafes nearby.

This is a perfect Yorkshire cottage from which to experience the beauty of the Dales. After a crisp country walk or a day exploring Leyburn, the roaring log burner awaits. Relax into the comfortable leather sofa, putting the television for an indulgent afternoon film, or relish in a good book curled up in the cowhide armchair. The living room is a cosy and stylish space, with traditional characteristics including wooden beams and an exposed stone fireplace.

In the bedroom, treat yourself to a lazy morning in the large and luxurious sleigh bed. There is a dressing table and plenty of wardrobe space for your stay. There is also space for a cot for families looking for a luxury escape that is also baby-friendly. Adjoining the bedroom is the spacious en-suite wet room with a shower.

This is also a dog-friendly spot, so you can bring a pooch along with you. Along the driveway from the cottage, overlooking the gallops and the Dales beyond, is an enclosed garden area. This is a private and quiet place to enjoy the views with seating and a gas BBQ.

Sun Hill Farm is a fantastic race yard, and guests can even book a tour from the team. This Yorkshire holiday cottage can be booked as a fantastic addition to the neighbouring five-bedroom Sun Hill Farmhouse or the three-bedroom Sun Hill Cottage. Taken all together, Sun Hill Farm is a stunning spot for big group getaways of up to eighteen guests.


There is free wi-fi throughout this Dales cottage. On arrival, enjoy the locally sourced welcome hamper, a starter pack for the kitchen and the log burning stove. The digital TV includes a DVD player, and there’s a separate sound system with a radio.

High-quality bed linen, towels, and luxury toiletries are included. The kitchen is well-equipped for breakfast, baking and Sunday roasts. A dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, iron and ironing board are included, with a washing machine and dryer located in a neighbouring building.

The Palins is suitable for guests looking for accessible ground-floor accommodation. After the first step onto the path, the rest of the cottage is all on one level and there’s a wet room. Shared parking is adjacent to the front door on a gravel drive.
