Set in the small hamlet of West Scrafton in Coverdale, one of the least discovered dales in the Yorkshire Dales, this comfortable, beamed cottage is one of a pair (right of photograph). Affording stunning views, it stands within a superb area for walking, lying between Wensleydale's wide basin and beautiful, rugged Upper Wharfedale.

Set in the secluded hamlet of West Scrafton, this spacious Grade 2 listed house is full of character, with beams and 16th century mullioned windows. Adjoining another property, it has its own delightful south facing walled garden with scenic walks from the doorstep.  The town of Middleham, 5 miles away, is famous for its castle and racehorses.  There is a good pub within 3 miles.
