Cherry Tree Cottage to sleep 4 is a quaint stone built cottage which offers delightful accommodation lovingly cared for and interestingly converted with its bedrooms at ground level and living space on the first floor. The cottage sits peacefully in a small cul-de-sac just a few paces from the village green and has a private paved garden to the side.
A hallway provides access to the first floor stairway, two bedrooms and a stylish bathroom with bath, shower, washbasin and toilet. One bedroom contains a double bed, with an original fitted cupboard and large picture window to overlook the garden. The other bedroom has two single beds and a separate washbasin.
The first floor opens into a comfortable lounge with traditional open hearth fireplace and beamed ceiling with views over the garden and the dale. Adjoining is a beautifully fitted and well equipped kitchen/dining room with views over the rooftops to the splendour of Wensleydale beyond.
A snug cottage tastefully decorated and with quality furnishings give a light and airy feel whist retaining its charming character offering accommodation of a very high standard.
Price £330 - £600 per week.
West Burton, acclaimed by many to be one of the most beautiful villages in England, rests snugly in a deep sheltered valley at the juncture of Walden Dale, Bishopdale and Wensleydale. Nearby, high fell sides rise steeply to form a spectacular setting to this most picturesque of dales villages, and on climbing can give unrivalled panoramas of the surrounding dales and distant views of the Vale of York and North York Moors.
Walden Beck skirts the village and descends over rocky outcrops in a spectacular waterfall with deep pools and minor cascades held in a tree lined gorge to form a natural arena of beauty and relaxation.
The village surrounds an expansive green centred by an ancient market cross and, because of its position away from the main traffic routes, still offers traditional rural tranquillity. This is particularly true of the green where, here and there, small bench seats prompt social rendezvous and easy conversation.
It is served by a bus route and is ideally placed as a base for exploration of the dales and fells whether on foot or by car. There is no need, however, to travel for the basics in life as West Burton contains a pub, butchers shop and general store/tearoom.
