We are excited to be launching this magnificent property which has been awarded a quality 5* Gold grading. Relax and unwind at this perfect haven of tranquillity, located in Harmby just outside the popular market town of Leyburn in beautiful Wensleydale. This luxury stone built detached property has been completely modernised and renovated to an exceptionally high standard. The stunning interior combines a mixture of contemporary and traditional style and benefits from equally stunning views over to Middleham from the front windows, conservatory and balcony. 

This high-quality property will impress at every turn, with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, with exception of the conservatory that has a wall mounted radiator.  It boasts an immaculate finish inside that provides pure luxury throughout.  Step first into the hall where your eye will immediately be drawn up towards the galleried landing with modern oak and glass bespoke staircase, framed beautifully by stylish feature lights and which is flooded with natural light from the apex windows above. Next, discover the superb, open-plan lounge and kitchen/dining area.  The bespoke kitchen incorporates a wide range of high quality integrated appliances, together with granite worktops and a central island which doubles as a breakfast bar. You’re sure to enjoy curling up on an evening beside the traditional wood-burning stove in the lounge. You’ll also find art by renowned Dales artist Lucy Pittaway, to admire. Also on the ground floor is the charming conservatory, where you can take advantage of the views across the Dales or head out onto the wrap around balcony, which in turn takes you down to the landscaped gardens and access to the hot tub. The ground floor bedroom and en-suite offers easy access. 

Upstairs, the small study area provides a laptop for guests to use. Each of the two other stunning bedrooms all feature the same quality of décor and furnishings, resulting in the ultimate sleep experience. Each bedroom is equipped with a Smart TV, Amazon Echo and their own en-suite bathroom or shower rooms. The master bathroom suite also enjoys the added luxury of an Aquavision TV in the wall, so you can enjoy watching your favourite shows whilst having a relaxing bath.

The attention to detail in Feathered Nest is second to none, offering guests a high level of luxury and elegance whilst retaining a relaxed homely atmosphere in what can only be described as a truly spectacular part of the country. The generous welcome pack will ensure that your holiday gets off to a great start.

Mrs Janet M,

We have stayed in several gorgeous cottages in the area but this is definitely one of the best. Beautifully decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard - you have thought of absolutely everything! Thank you also for the lovely flowers, the welcome pack and the warm welcome. Shame about the weather but that's life. Thank you.

Previous Customer,

Thank you again and we can't wait to re-visit!

Past Customer,

Once again had a fabulous time.

Joanne & S,

When you enter Feathered Nest the spacious hallway with beautiful staircase is amazing. The whole cottage has a warm and welcoming feel, with all bedrooms offering modern ensuites (all with underfloor heating!), and the views throughout are fabulous. The décor is second to none, and everything you could possibly want or need for a restful stay is available. The boot room gives ample space to leave wet coats and muddy boots, and the kitchen is equipped with the most up to date appliances. Our teenage girls loved the coffee machine and were totally spoilt with hot chocolate! The log burner was also a winner, especially during the cold snowy evenings. There is no doubt we will be returning to this fantastic cottage in the very near future. Thank you for having us :)

Previous Customer,

Feathered Nest is a beautiful & luxurious holiday house - definitely worth its 5* status. It was homely from the moment we walked in & was equiped with everything that you could ever want or need for a great holiday. Both the interior & exterior have been very tastefully done and all the fixtures & fittings are of the highest quality (the beds are so comfy!). The sun room has amazing views and the hot tub is very relaxing after a long walk (of which there are many in the local area). Andrew & Clare are very committed to making your stay as pleasant as possible & are extremely helpful with any queries that you might have. The welcome pack was very well received & as it was Easter, there were vases of beautiful spring flowers in many of the rooms - along with many other thoughtful touches.

Mrs Lesley S,
