With mesmerising panoramas of Penn Hill and the surrounding patchwork of green, this property is the perfect haven for nature-lovers looking to immerse themselves in country living.

Encompassed by such unyielding natural beauty, the first port of call for guests is, of course, the surrounding countryside and moors. To delve beneath the surface, pick up the Leyburn to Harmby walk, a 5-mile circular walk that takes you to Harmby's hidden waterfall. For a bit more of a challenge, there is also a 7-mile route that includes Preston-under-Scar, Wensley and Leyburn Shawl. Once you've worked up an appetite, 2.5 miles away in Redmire is the Bolton Arms pub and restaurant. 3.5 miles away, Leyburn market town also offers shops and eateries.

After a long drive or day of exploring, this property's sunlit lounge is the ideal place to put your feet up. Rewarding guests with magnificent views from the windows, you can sink into one of the large, plump sofas, which are new for 2019, and drink it all in. When evening creeps in and momentarily cloaks the scenery, a TV and DVD are provided for family entertainment and an open fire adds to the cosy atmosphere. To put together a picnic or cook up a feast for all the gang, a kitchen comes equipped with an oven, electric hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. For extra convenience, there is also an outhouse with a tumble dryer and additional fridge for extra supplies! Next to the kitchen is the diner. Enjoying lots of light from the floor to ceiling patio doors and a large dining table big enough for all the family, it's a sweet family space throughout the day. For a good night's sleep, head upstairs. Here, all three of the cottage's bedrooms can be found. The master bedroom has a super-king-size bed, the second bedroom has a double and the third has a single bed. Also, upstairs is the family bathroom, where a bath with overhead shower provides a bubbly embrace.

Heading outside, you'll appreciate the property's true icing on the cake. With a private patio boasting incredible vistas, make use of the outside furniture to lap up the sunshine and the sights with a morning coffee or evening tipple.

The Setts is an absolutely lovely cottage, warm and cosy, but also felt spacious and light inside. The views from the house are idyllic, and we had a wonderful week walking the footpaths around Preston under Scar.

A beautiful cottage in an absolute perfect location. Views across the valley to die for. Local footpaths to Leyburn (great local shops), Wensleydale (good pub) and Redmire (the excellent Bolton Arms) from the village. Added bonus is the option to hop on the local community bus back from Leyburn! The cottage itself is nicely proportioned with large Read moresitting room (with views!), a lovely dining area and a spacious, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and a powerful, hot shower. Highly recommended. Hide

We had a great week in this lovely, comfortable cottage. It is perfectly situated in a charming Wensleydale village and has far reaching view across the valley towards the gallops on the other side. We enjoyed walking in several of the Dales as well as visiting local villages and towns. We enjoyed queuing up with the locals for the fish and chip vaRead moren! Would highly recommend this cottage.

Delightful 3 bed cottage in Wensleydale, with amazing views from the terrace. The cottage is in a small village (Preston Under Scar) and has everything that you would need and the kitchen is well equipped. Easy access to local pubs and restaurants nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
