This former cart store has been converted into a quaint Dale’s stone cottage set just off the village green in Bellerby. With its streams and mill race running through Bellerby, it’s a picturesque setting at the edge of Wensleydale. Entering the front door into the living/dining room with exposed stonework, flagstone flooring, beams and a large inglenook fireplace, the cottage offers an abundance of character and charm. The two settees set around the open fire offer a cosy feel while watching the Smart TV in Holly Cottage.
A dining table and chairs are positioned to the rear of the room. Going through to the kitchen, all the appliances, crockery, and utensils you need are available to rustle up some cosy meals while staying at Holly Cottage. The staircase from the living room is characterful with uneven treads and a rope bannister to guide you up towards the two bedrooms. Both rooms offer comfortable beds with attractive linen and hand and bath towels. The compact shower room has a heated towel rail, shower cubicle and toilet completes the accommodation available.
To the rear of the property there is an enclosed picket fenced garden which includes a lawn area and flower beds along with a stone patio with a table, chairs, and a bench to enjoy sitting at while taking in a morning coffee or firing up the barbecue for an alfresco supper. The front garden is not secured but guests can happily sit there on the bench near the shared front driveway which offers parking for 1 car.
The adjacent property Cherry Tree Cottage is allocated parking for 2 cars on the driveway. Bellerby is situated on the edge of The Yorkshire Dales National Park with a local pub serving a selection of real ales but currently no food and although there is no shop in the village the lovely market town of Leyburn is just 1 mile away where an array of individual shops, pubs, cafés, and restaurants are available. If you are looking to get out and stretch your legs, whether walking or cycling, there are abundant established public footpaths, bridleways, and cycle routes available in the local vicinity with spectacular scenery, open countryside, and pretty Yorkshire villages to explore.
Within easy driving distance there is an array of places to visit whether it’s the historic Castle Bolton, Richmond Castle, Jervaulx Abbey or the stunning Aysgarth Falls, there is something to suit everyone’s taste. The children will love Forbidden Corner with its quirky folly garden to explore or for the more adventurous why not visit the theme park, Lightwater Valley. Whatever you choose to do please immerse yourself fully in the Yorkshire way of life – once it gets in you, you’ll be wanting to come back where a warm welcome will always be here.

A well equipped little cottage in a good location. Has a couple of niggles mostly around the bathroom . I found it difficult to get into the shower owing the lefthand door closing on me . This is due to the floor being out of level . I have renovated a 17th century cottage and have faced similar problems so I know what I'm talking about however if the price is right it is a worthwhile visit . The pub didnt seem to be open during our visit although that didn't bother us too much. The surrounding area around the cottage is stunning especially around Reeth.

A warm and cosy little cottage in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. The cottage is well equipped with all the amenities you need. The welcome pack was a lovely idea. The village is very friendly, but there is nowhere to eat in Bellerby, but Leyburn is only a mile away with loads of restaurants and pubs. So many breathtaking sights in the Dales. It is worth downloading the Yorkshire Dales app for brilliant ideas for circular walks too.
