Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Leyburn, United Kingdom, Your Home Away From Home

Surrounded by stunning countryside, the market town of Leyburn acts as one of the gateways into the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the UK. Boasting an array of restaurants, pubs, cafés and independent shops, there is also a wide range of accommodation on offer for people who would like to stay in the town. A holiday rental cottage in Leyburn appeals to those that want to escape the stress of daily life, whilst soaking up the rural atmosphere. The homely feel that the accommodation brings soon helps people to relax and unwind, and the fully fitted and equipped kitchen means that it is not necessary to eat out for every meal.

Things to Do on Holiday in Leyburn, United Kingdom

The Yorkshire Dales are the main reason behind choosing a holiday in Leyburn, and they are best explored and enjoyed on foot. Numerous walking trails both official and unofficial criss-cross the area, and these can either be done as loops from the town, or done as something called “Just the Ticket” walks, which involve using buses and the Wensleydale Railway. Other activities that it is possible to do during a stay at a holiday rental cottage in Leyburn include tennis, cycling and golf.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Leyburn, United Kingdom

Part of the joy of a holiday in Leyburn is getting to see some of the local attractions. The town itself has a weekly market on a Friday, and a farmers’ market every two weeks which are both well worth visiting. Further afield, apart from the Yorkshire Dales, which have already been mentioned, the North York Moors National Park and the Lake District are also areas of outstanding natural beauty. For an insight into the history of the area, a visit to the city of York should be taken. The City Walls and York Minster are both incredible places to visit, and walking through the medieval streets of the Shambles is highly recommended.

Weather in Leyburn, United Kingdom

As with most areas within the United Kingdom, Leyburn has a temperate climate, however, there are wide variations. For example, whilst the east of the county receives below average rainfall for the UK, the upper Dales are actually amongst the wettest! Anyone who is going for long walks or hikes should be prepared for the weather to change at short notice, even on what appears to be a hot, sunny day. The summer months are the warmest, though, and July and August see average daily high temperatures of 21 degrees Celsius. The winter months of December and January are the coldest, with average lows of 1 degree. In terms of rain, anywhere between 40 and 80mm per month can be expected.

Travel to Leyburn, United Kingdom

As the UK is quite a compact country, it is easier to drive everywhere than it is to fly. Travel times from London by car are under 4 hours in duration, and main motorway routes can be taken for most of the way. The use of a car is essential during a holiday in Leyburn in order to be able to reach other protected park areas as well as York city.

The property has a good layout with a cosy living room, kitchen/dining area and our favourite room - the conservatory! The only downside for us was that although this is a non-smoking property there was a smell of smoke in the hallway and kitchen which, for a family of non-smokers, wasn't too pleasant! Not sure what the owner can do about previous holiday-makers 'bending the rules' and having said this we enjoyed our stay (with a little help from an air freshener!) and spent plenty of time relaxing in the conservatory which has some great views! We had great customer service from the owner and there was plenty of information in the property about the local area if you need it - there's plenty to see and do, and lots of lovely walks. Would recommend this house as a base for those wanting to explore the Yorkshire Dales area.

The quality and standard of the cottage is fantastic and I have never stayed anywhere so well equipped, we like to eat in as much as out when away and the kitchen has everything and more that you could possibly need. From booking to returning the communication from the cottage owner was again second to none, he provided in depth detail about the cottage, the local area and where to eat, shop and visit. Eating out we tried the Saffron Indian in Leyburn and the Streethead Inn which is a short walk from the cottage. Both were great and the portion sizes at the Streethead are not for the faint hearted !!! Out and About there are so many beautiful and interesting places to visit. We only scratched the surface seeing the Waterfalls at Aysgarth and Hardrow, Richmond Castle and Fountains Abbey is a full day for anyone to enjoy. The only downside to our break is that we wish we were there for longer. We would certainly recommend to our friends and family and am sure we will return to Westburn Cottage.

The cottage is handy for the pubs, cafes and shops of Reeth and has wonderful views from the three windows in the living area and from the bedrooms. The beds are comfy and the cottage is clean and bright. The Welcome basket is a real treat and we also enjoyed the open fire. We were particularly touched by Jo's thoughtfulness, when realising that the change from twin beds to a double would affect our stay, allowed two of us to stay in another nearby cottage which was also delightful.
