Meadowcroft Cottage

Meadowcroft Cottage


43 Llythrid Avenue,


Hallgarth Barn,


Thoralby quietly nestles close to Aysgarth Falls at the foot of the glaciated valley of Bishopdale just before it joins Wensleydale. One of the special gems of the Yorkshire Dales, it is surrounded by ancient byways and footpaths, all brim full of wildlife.

Situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, there is easy access to all parts of the Dales by car, whilst an extensive network of footpaths fan out directly from the village itself. Unusually, the main Dales thoroughfares skirt around the village and leave it with an unrivalled air of peace and tranquility. It retains the characteristics of an active agricultural community, unspoiled by excessive tourism. The local pub, shop and village green add to its charm.

Meadowcroft is an extremely comfortable conversion of the central part of a large Dales barn. A short 200-metre walk takes you to the village centre. To take advantage of the outstanding views in all directions, the living area is on the upper floor, whilst the two bedrooms and bathroom are at ground level. Extensive facilities are provided to full VisitBritain 'Four Star' level, the kitchen being able to provide everything from a simple snack to a gourmet meal and the bathroom fittings being of 'executive' standard. The cottage is an 'all-electric' property.

A garage plus a single open area provide secure parking and cycle storage, completely off-road and adjacent to the private paddock area. SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED anywhere in the property and a maximum of five people can be accommodated.

    “We had a good relaxing break.”

    The cottage was well equipped and clean. It had lovely views although the windows could have been cleaner. It was very peaceful. Having to pay for the electricity with pound coins was a bit inconvenient and paying extra for towels and bedding was unusual. I would have preferred this to have been included in the price. Having said that we would go back.

    This arrangement is to allow those who wish to bring their own towels etc & who are modest users of electricity to have the benefit of a significantly reduced charge holiday. Hence the low quoted base price for a four star cottage with these facilities.
