Description of Coachman's Loft

Coachman’s Loft, West Witton

The Property

Coachman’s loft is a delightfully spacious first floor conversion of a stone barn dating back over 250 years, situated off the main street in the heart of West Witton in the lee of Penhill. It is a Visit England 4 STAR Property which comprises a double bedroom with a king size bed, a living area including a kitchen and dining area, and a shower room. Parking is on the adjacent quiet road off the main street.

The Accommodation

The Barn is located within the owners’ property which is entered from the well-kept cottage style garden and patio area. There is also space for a summer evening barbeque. Tastefully renovated and recently decorated throughout the barn conversion offers outstanding accommodation with high quality furnishings and “home from home” facilities. The property is heated throughout by modern thermostatically controlled electric heaters.
The entrance door leads to a hall/lobby area for coats and muddy boots and the accommodation is accessed by wooden and stone stairs. The cosy open plan living area features a sitting area, dining area, a breakfast bar and a well equipped kitchen. Across the landing past the shower room and toilet is the large double bedroom. There is a king size bed with a comfy mattress and plenty of cupboard and drawer space. Guests are welcome to use the owners’ private garden seating and patio area.

The Area

West Witton boasts a village shop which is well stocked and has fresh bread, cakes and pastries most days, the Fox and Hounds pub serving real ale and good food and the Wensleydale Heifer an award winning restaurant renowned for its food and hospitality.
There are many walks available directly from the Loft with the popular climb up Penhill, the magnificent Aysgarth Falls or across the River Ure to Castle Bolton and Redmire.
Washing and drying facilities are available at no charge and bikes can be stored safely and securely for those who wish to re-enact the Grand Depart of the Tour de France 2014 or the Tour De Yorkshire routes.
Coachman’s Loft is ideal for a romantic break, a touring base to walk cycle or drive in Wensleydale, Wharfedale and Swaledale or somewhere just to relax.
