Sun Hill Cottage

Sun Hill Cottage is our charming three bedroom (fourth bedroom available on request), dog friendly holiday cottage at Sun Hill Farm, a well-known racehorse training establishment in Constable Burton, near Leyburn, North Yorkshire.

This traditional cottage is full of character with solid oak beams, stone walls and arches to add to the period appeal and is the perfect country retreat at the heart of the glorious ’gateway’ to the Dales.

The traditional cottage offers a farmhouse style kitchen with a traditional aga, breakfast island and spacious dining area along with everything you could need for a self catering holiday in Yorkshire. We can even arrange a private chef to cook for your group, so you can relax and make your stay more memorable.

At the heart of the home is the cosy living area with comfy seating and a log burning stove to curl up with a glass of wine and a book after a day exploring the Dales. French doors lead out to the patio and garden with a secluded covered hot tub with stunning views over the majestic rolling countryside and views across the gallops and paddocks which form part of the training facilities at Sun Hill Racing. You can even see racehorses working on the gallops from the garden whilst you enjoy an al fresco breakfast or lunch time BBQ. 

This holiday home has two double bedrooms and one twin room, each with their own en-suite facilities. One of the double bedrooms is downstairs, perfect for a couple looking for a bit more privacy or with difficulties getting up the stairs. 

Sun Hill Cottage offers an idyllic rural escape in the heart of Wensleydale for families and friends to escape from busy lives and relax and reconnect with nature, with a certain appeal to any equestrian enthusiasts. We know that nobody wants to get left behind on a family holiday so the cottage also allows you to bring along your doggies - the ideal dog friendly holiday cottage in Yorkshire! 

Middleham and Leyburn offer a range of everyday shopping as well as inns and tearooms within 3 miles of the cottage while Hawes, Bedale, Richmond and Harrogate are all within an easy drive and have something to impress everyone in your group. Only 3 miles away is the well known historical racing town of Middleham and for any horse racing enthusiasts you can even book a guided stable tour of the racing yard at Sun Hill and really get to know the horses and meet the staff on the yard.
