About Claire and Stephen Seddon
We had taken holidays in the Yorkshire Dales, every year since 1991; camping, youth hostelling and staying in holiday cottages, before we had the opportunity to buy Barn End Cottage in February 2014. Whilst we still live and work in Northamptonshire, we spend as much time as we can, especially in the winter, at the cottage, relaxing, walking and still, after all these years, discovering new places to explore.
Claire and Stephen Seddon purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Claire and Stephen Seddon chose Hawes
After so many holidays in the dales we were looking for somewhere peaceful and slightly off the beaten tourist track but within easy reach, by car, of our favourite haunts in Wharfdale, Wensleydale and Swaledale. We did not know Coverdale well before we saw Barn End Cottage, but on that day in September 2013, our whole family knew instantly that we had found exactly what we were looking for. West Scrafton is a delightful hamlet, once a thriving mining village, but still with four working farms. The Great Gill rushes down through the village to join the River Cover, and the old track still leads up, under the imposing Roova Crags, to the remains of the mine, with breath taking views along the way of the whole of Coverdale from Great Whernside across to Wensleydale and beyond. West Scrafton is where ‘James Herriott’ holidayed all his adult life; he loved it, we love it and so will you.
What makes this Cottage unique
Barn End cottage is tucked away in the heart of West Scrafton. It is a home from home for us, and we hope, for our guests too. We loved the fact that the ground floor is open plan, allowing ‘the cook’ to remain in the heart of the family. It is a clever barn conversion providing all modern living requirements (including en-suites to both bedrooms) whilst retaining a traditional cottage atmosphere. There is dedicated parking for one car in the former farm yard shared with the adjoining cottage and by Culverham Farmhouse (no longer a working farm). Please note that commercial or additional vehicles must be parked in the adjoining lane and not in the farm yard.
