Please note that Heather Cottage is now CLOSED for any further business.

We thank all of our guests for their continued patronage - we really enjoyed having you stay with us.

It is however time to hang up our B&B "boots" and start something new.

Best wishes to you all

An Edwardian Country House in Wensleydale

Heather Cottage B&B near Aysgarth Falls in the Yorkshire Dales National Park is, despite the title, an Edwardian country gentleman's residence which has been substantially renovated and restored over the past few years. It now offers superb bed and breakfast accommodation and occupies a position in Aysgarth with spectacular views over  Wensleydale  and the much photographed Lady Hill.

The Guest house is full of interesting antiques and the halls are oak panelled with oak floors and stained glass windows in the fashion of the arts and crafts period.

     The house offers 2 fully en-suite Bed and Breakfast (B&B) rooms, for which
we have received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
Rooms are equipped with Flat-screen (Freeview) TV & DVD player, Tea and coffee making facilities with fridge

Enjoy Great Food? We offer delicious, varied, and locally sourced breakfasts  both for meat-eaters and vegetarians (try our home made vegetarian sausages). . Also we are fortunate to have, within walking distance or just a few minutes drive away, wonderful pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy a real gourmet night out.

Interested in Gardens? The fascinating Aysgarth Edwardian Alpine Rock Garden, which both B&B rooms overlook, is visited and admired by many thousands of alpine gardeners each year. For the alpine gardening enthusiast a stay at Heather cottage is a must!

Arts & Crafts your thing? The whole house is an original Arts & Crafts showpiece, which we have complemented with a range of Mosaic crafted items and antique furniture lovingly Re-upholstered and Restored here at Heather cottage.
