About The Palins

This country cottage is a stunning boltholt for a couple to explore from.

The Palins is a charming country cottage newly renovated to be five-star standard holiday accommodation. Step straight inside this stone one-bedroom Yorkshire Dales cottage into the open plan living room and kitchen. Enjoy breakfast from the breakfast bar styled with high leather stools. The modern kitchen is well-equipped, with everything you could need for a luxury stay, and guests will be greeted by a locally sourced welcome hamper.

This is a perfect setting 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 storage for your stay. There is also space for a cot for families who are looking for a luxury escape that is also baby-friendly. Step through into the spacious en-suite wet room with a shower.

The Palins is particularly suitable for guests looking for accessible accommodation without stairs or awkward steps. This is also a dog-friendly spot, so you can bring a pooch along with you.

Along the driveway, overlooking the gallops and the Dales beyond, is the garden area. This is a private and quiet place to enjoy the views. There’s also a gas BBQ.

This Yorkshire holiday cottage can be booked as a fantastic addition to the 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.

In the area…

When stocking up for food, head to the award-winning Campbell’s of Leyburn; family-run since 1868, it is a supermarket and wine retailer. For eating out, a mile away in Constable Burton is The Wyvill Arms with a warm welcoming bar and a restaurant. In the area, we also recommend The Saddle Room restaurant at The Forbidden Corner and the delicious award-winning seafood menu at The Wensleydale Heifer.

Leyburn is the closest town, 4 miles from this Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage. The market square offers a range of everyday shopping, furniture and gift shops, amenities, inns, and tearooms. Try delicious artisan chocolates from Inspired Chocolate or browse the sales at the well-regarded Tennant’s auction house. The Sandpiper Inn has a dog-friendly bar, and on Friday’s do make sure to visit Leyburn’s weekly market full of local produce.

Cycling is a popular activity in the area – for amateurs and enthusiasts alike. Tried and tested routes and bike hire are all available around Leyburn. For light afternoon activities, swing over to the driving range at nearby Akebar or wander around the stunning Jervaulx Abbey followed by a delicious ice cream at Brymoor. Scenic and more challenging walking routes weave across the countryside and market towns. There are some lovely routes around the well-known historical racing town of Middleham, 3 miles away. Middleham Gallops are fun to visit, and horse racing enthusiasts can even book guided stable tours of the Sun Hill racing yard and get to know the horses.

Hawes, Bedale, Richmond, and Harrogate are all within an easy drive of Sun Hill Farm. Our Journal has guides to each, and there’s something to enjoy for all ages. With the Yorkshire Dales at your doorstep, there is plenty to explore in the area, if you can pull yourself away from a relaxing break at The Palins.


There is free wi-fi throughout this Dales cottage. On arrival, enjoy the locally sourced welcome hamper, and a starter pack for the kitchen and the log burning stove. High-quality bed linen, towels, and luxury toiletries are included. The brand-new 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 digital TV includes a DVD player, and there’s a separate sound system with a radio.

Shared parking is adjacent to the front door on a gravel drive. After the first step onto the path, the rest of the cottage is all on one level and there’s a wet room, making it an accessible cottage.
