This cosy single-storey cottage is a perfect setting for a romantic escape for two. Sun Hill Palins is well located outside of Leyburn on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, the cottage is part of Sun Hill Farm.
In a charming setting, the inside features the original stone which is exposed in areas and an open-plan living and kitchen area with a log burner. Settle into the sofa together in front of a film, or in the warmer months after a day's exploring, sit in the garden (just a short stroll along the drive) and watch horses train from Sun Hill Racing stables. From Sun Hill Palins, easily explore the nearby towns Leyburn, Middleham, and Bedale, as well as the Yorkshire Dales National Park which is a short drive away.
The Palins is a charming country cottage on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales for a couple. Step inside to 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 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 on the comfortable leather sofa, putting on 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.
This is also a dog-friendly spot so you can bring a pooch along with you. There are plenty of walks to enjoy in Wensleydale and the wider area.
In the bedroom, treat yourself to a lazy morning in the large and luxurious sleigh bed. Behind the bed features the original exposed stonework. There is a dressing table and plenty of built-in wardrobes to cater for your stay. There is also space for a cot for young families looking for an escape to a baby-friendly cottage.
