Horsehouse near Leyburn, Yorkshire Dales National Park

A wonderful stone-built farmhouse and attached barn with two main entrances, located on the outskirts of Horsehouse, a tiny village in a hidden corner of beautiful Coverdale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Situated in its own grounds on a hill, it boasts magnificent views of the surrounding Dales countryside. Offering country living at its finest, it was renovated to a good standard to provide spacious accommodation, full of character and charm throughout – ideal for a large family or group of friends to get away from it all.

The barn conversion boasts an open plan kitchen, dining area with galleried sitting area, and a separate first-floor sitting room with woodburning stove, perfect to relax and take in the outstanding views. It also contains two bedrooms, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a small shower room with Jack-and-Jill access to the second bedroom.

A ground floor bedroom with en-suite and three first floor bedrooms, one with a spacious en-suite and a separate house bathroom all combine to present a well laid out holiday home.

About the location


Coverdale is one of the most beautiful areas of the Yorkshire Dales and there are walks from the doorstep of this Horsehouse farmhouse; alternatively, take a day trip to discover nearby Coverham Abbey, Middleham Castle, the historic market town of Leyburn and Fountains Abbey.
A great dales cottage where you and your party can get together and enjoy the splendour of the Yorkshire Dales.


Leyburn 8 miles; Kettlewell 8 miles; Hawes 18 miles.
Horsehouse is a tiny village in the heart of unspoiled Coverdale, a relatively undiscovered corner of the Yorkshire Dales.

The village is home to “The Thwaite Arms” – a pub serving food and St. Botolph’s Church.
Many green lanes and ancient tracks still cross the fells and connect the hamlets, villages and towns which make up the major settlements in this narrow dale.

The nearest market town is historical Leyburn.
Dominated by its large market square, which still boasts a lively Friday market, the bustling town of Leyburn is known as the ‘Gateway to Wensleydale’, with beautiful views from its western edge across the Dale.

The town has much to offer with its many craft shops, galleries, and tea rooms.
There are many lovely walks for all abilities in this beautiful area, as well as delightful villages to explore.
Also within easy reach are many other attractions, notably the Constable Burton Hall Gardens with extensive parkland and woodland walks, the Forbidden Corner with its underground passages to explore, and of course the lovely Georgian town of Richmond with its fine castle ruins.

“Beautiful setting – comfortable and cosy place – Kim who was our contact was friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We all enjoyed the venue.”

Mr JOct 2019

“The house is well equipped, warm and comfortable. It is set on the side of the valley with great views and good walks straight out of the door. The house has plenty of living space and there is plenty to visit within a 15 – 40 minute drive. The back up from the manager is excellent and whilst there is no phone connection there is wifi and a land line (if needed).”

Mr ROct 2019

“A lovely week holiday. The housekeeper Kim was very helpful. I would recommend Deerclose West to friends for large party getaways.”

Mrs MSept 2019
