Built in 1800, Corner Cottage is in Carperby in the heart of Wensleydale. It is decorated in muted tones and retains key period features, including flagstone and wooden floors; deep window recesses; window seats; a traditional stone larder (which serves as the utility and boot room); a large stone fireplace with wood burning stove; and a walled garden with patio, 2 seating areas and flower beds. It's a tranquil place - perfect for getting away from it all - and there's wifi too.

The space
An internal porch leads into the kitchen, including a dining area, and to the pantry, then to the living room. Most rooms have wooden shuttered windows. Upstairs, the house bathroom has a roll-top bath and separate shower. The master bedroom is en-suite, with a king-sized bed; and the double bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe. Both rooms and the en-suite have lovely views across to Penhill. The third bedroom – small but beautifully appointed – is ideal for a child or an adult up to 5’ 4” tall.

There is a small lobby at the bottom of the stairs, with a back door to the walled garden. The garden – at its most spectacular in June and July – has outdoor seating and a table on the patio, a lawn and two further seating areas. You’re welcome to pick flowers and herbs. A garage, useful for storing bikes, houses a parasol and two barbecues.

The cottage is very well-equipped, especially for cooks, including a dishwasher and food processor.

There's no parking outside the cottage, but you can pull up to unload on one of the turnings off the main road across from the house. There are parking spaces in the centre of the village, adjacent to the market cross, and a few spaces parallel to the main road, outside the Friends' Meeting House (this is much the best spot as it's close to the house - it's where we park). Further spaces are available on the main road east of the market cross.

Corner Cottage is old. It has 200 year-old features that include a flagstone staircase, so may not be suitable for unsupervised tinies. It also fronts straight onto the road through Carperby, so care must be taken when leaving and entering the house.

Carperby, Leyburn, North Yorkshire, UK, Leyburn, United Kingdom

Carperby’s existence pre-dates the Norman Conquest. It’s a quiet and friendly village, which hosts concerts and gigs in the Village Institute and an ‘open gardens’ event in July. The pub – The Wheatsheaf Inn – is a real hub of village life which offers great food and friendly service. It also hosted the author of the James Herriot series of novels (on which the television series was based) during his honeymoon.

Originally from London, I moved north in 1987 and stayed. I've wanted a home in the Yorkshire Dales since I was in my 20s and am so happy now to be able to welcome guests to this glorious part of the world. I work part-time as a University manager and when I'm not doing that indulge my interests: cooking, gardening, walking, cycling, reading and gin.
