The Beautiful Yorkshire Dales ~ Aysgarth Nook


The sumptuous sofa in the living room.

With staycations in England set to be back on the cards from July 4th (whoop!) I thought I would share a fabulous holiday property I discovered back in February. Before lockdown, when getting in the car for a much needed weekend away with family and friends was still very much a thing you could do at the drop of a hat.

Cosy up around the wood-burning stove.

I was invited to stay at the stunning Aysgarth Nook in the yorkshire dales. A traditional Wensleydale cottage that has been lovingly transformed into a luxurious bolt-hole whilst retaining much of it’s 300 year old personality.

Dining for ten in the stunning Kesseler kitchen.
Sleeping ten guests, the cottage boasts many coveted features such original exposed beams, a beautiful log-burning stove to cosy around, a freestanding bath in the master bedroom and a sleek modern Kesseler kitchen. It’s pretty much impossible not to be bowled over by this lovely property.
The Master bedroom in the loft with its freestanding bath.
Including the living areas, there’s four bedrooms, two bathrooms, an ensuite in one of the doubles and a bath in the master. There’s ample room to stretch out and have your own space.
Relax and unwind.

There’s also another room downstairs that can be dressed as a double bedroom, or be used as a separate ‘snug’ room. Making this a five bedroom haven.

See exactly where you are in the snug.

As you step out of the sliding doors from the fifth bedroom/snug you meet the icing on the cake! A secluded garden and terrace, equipped with a hot tub to enjoy the breath-taking views across Wensleydale and beyond.

As for the local area, there’s so much to see and do. Aysgarth Nook is situated in the picture postcard Wensleydale village of Aysgarth, cosied up beside the fabulous Hamilton’s Tearooms. It’s also a 2-minute walk away from the local Pub.

The area sits within the boundaries of the awe-inspiring Yorkshire Dales National Park. It’s also close to the pretty market towns of Leyburn and Hawes with their many quirky, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and traditional pubs. The imposing Castle Bolton is a 4-mile hike or a short drive away.

Aysgarth Falls.

The infamous Aysgarth Falls, fondly known as one of the seven natural wonders of the North, and where Kevin Costner once frolicked with Maid Marion on the film set for ‘Robin Hood Prince of Thieves’ is just a short walk away. It’s a must on your list of things to do, so beautiful.

As well as Aysgarth, the Maison Parfaite collection also includes properties in Harrogate, Leeds, York and Whitby. Each one boasts a fancy-pants bathroom, many of which with an incredible bath to pamper yourself in… What’s not to love about that!?

We had the most wonderful stay and can’t wait to return to the stunning North.

Until next time,
