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.
