The space

Located in the popular Dales village of Harmby, just one mile from Leyburn is 2, Rose Cottages. This charming country cottage is oozing with character, and would make the ideal base for a holiday in the Yorkshire Dales at any time of year.

You are greeted by a welcoming rustic pine kitchen creating a homely friendly feel, retaining many interesting original features such as an alcove which was formerly a bread oven. The dining table and butler’s bench finish off the look and offer a true ‘country cottage’ feel. The charm of this cottage does not end in the kitchen. The lounge boasts an original ‘Range’ cleverly incorporating a wood burning stove to keep you cosy on those cooler winter evenings after an invigorating walk on the fells, before retiring to the four poster bed in the master bedroom.

Guest access

The property is rented on a sole use basis, you will not be sharing the property with anyone else.

Interaction with guests

I will not be present but can answer questions via phone or email

The neighborhood

Check out Blue Lion, the Wensleydale Heather, and the Sandpiper for great food.

Getting around

Nearest train station is Northallerton. Nearest train station with car hire (Hertz) at the station is York. I tend to hire a car from York and then stop off at Crab and Lobster for dinner on way to the cottage.

If you don't wish to hire a car then you can go to Northallerton and get a bus to the cottage (73 to Bedale and then 156/157 to Harmby). (website hidden) buses from Northallerton to Leyburn for details

Other things to note

Mobile phone reception is patchy at the cottage and generally across the Yorkshire Dales! It's good for 'disconnecting' but if you do need to make a call then walk for a minute to the top of the hill and you should get a signal. In nearby leyburn there is free wifi accessible to the public.

I don't charge a cleaning fee to keep costs as low as possible. It would be very much appreciated if you are able to strip any beds used and placed used sheets etc on the corner of the bed.

If you can leave the house as clean as possible then it will help me to continue not to charge a cleaning fee...Your help is most appreciated.

There is also a complimentary basket of firewood provide for the log burner. If you require more I ask that you pay £4 for another basket full. There is a honesty box for this purpose

A great cottage in a quiet village - exactly as described. Great to have a log fire, maps and walking books available and a nice pub just up the road. Lovely location.

House was nice and warm when we arrived with lots of notes and booklets to inform us about the local area. The location is ideal, walking distance from most towns and with countryside walks starting from the doorstep. Would certainly recommend a stay here
