Newlyn is a delightful cottage in the village of Thornton Rust in Upper Wensleydale.

Thornton Rust is a small village within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It has a village hall and a chapel, and an active community life if desired. The village is 3 miles from both Askrigg & Bainbridge and just 2 miles from Aysgarth. In Aysgarth, there is a village shop, two pubs, cafes, Church and doctors surgery. The market towns of Hawes & Leyburn are only 7 & 11 miles respectively. Sitting on the slopes of Addlebrough, it is surrounded by glorious hills and dales and is popular with walkers.

The cottage most likely dates back to the early 1800's and enjoys character and charm in abundance. On the ground floor there is a little kitchen which is virtually open through to a charming dining room with flagged floors, ceiling beams and a traditional pine fronted pantry cupboard. The living room also has stone flagged floors and has a superb inglenook fireplace with slit stone lintel.

Upstairs there is a good sized main bedroom with wash basin & pretty views over the neighbouring fruit garden to the fields. There is a bathroom and a further bedroom, currently a twin, also with a wash basin.

The property has double glazing to the rear and oil fired central heating.

Outside, there is a gated covered area which is perfect for an evening barbeque or for off road parking if required although there is plenty of village parking. There is an area for the oil tank and a stone built coal store as well as an outside store which houses the boiler making an ideal drying room and an additional WC.

Newlyn is a perfect Dales bolt hole which has been a much loved second home for the current owners (who have now bought a house locally to retire to) and would be a good holiday letting cottage if required.
