Aysgarth Nook by Maison Parfaite



Aysgarth Nook by Maison Parfaite

Aysgarth Nook is a distinctly avant-garde, newly renovated property, oozing with elegant designer furniture and state of the art fittings at every turn.

This traditional Wensleydale cottage has been transformed into an uber luxurious modernist bolt hole without losing one ounce of it’s 300-year-old personality.

Oozing with charm, the stunning cottage boasts many coveted features such as the original exposed beams in the lounge, a beautiful log burning stove, magnificent views over open fells and deep window seats from which to enjoy those views. These traditional elements are juxtaposed perfectly with the sleek modern Kesseler kitchen, industrial exposed staircase, Nordic style ‘floating’ bedroom furniture from Hulsta (a nod to the old Norse history of the area) to create the ‘Scandi-Yorkshire’ theme that runs throughout the property. Innovative lighting and heating system installations are prevalent – the images of Aysgarth Falls above the beds, taken by local photographer David Tarn, are actually Infrared heating panels. As well as being super energy efficient, they are actually a therapeutic health-conscious alternative to traditional electric heating and great for allergy sufferers.

The whole ground floor is kitted out with WIFI enabled underfloor heating which can be controlled by your smart phone, a blessing for walkers coming in from the bracing outdoors! And of course, the soothing hot tub in the private garden, with those jaw dropping views over Wensleydale is just the icing on the cake.

Aysgarth Nook is situated in the Picture-Postcard Wensleydale village of Aysgarth, cosied up beside the fabulous Hamilton’s Tearooms and just a 2-minute walk away from the George and Dragon Pub, serving hearty home cooked meals and fine ales, this delightful holiday let really is blessed with its ideal location. The infamous Aysgarth Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the North.The falls attract visitors all year round, indeed they truly demonstrate their magnificence during the wetter months. Artists, photographers and writers flock here to capture the imagery and the drama in their own senses. Ruskin, Turner and Wordsworth were three such visitors, and all enthused about the falls’ outstanding beauty.

Aysgarth itself sits within the boundaries of the awe-inspiring Yorkshire Dales National Park and is close to the pretty market towns of Leyburn and Hawes with their plethora of quirky, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and traditional pubs. The imposing Castle Bolton is a 4-mile hike or a short drive away. Outdoor adventurists are spoilt for choice as there are many stunning walks and cycleways for those of an energetic nature, including the start of the “Three Peaks” walk which is within driving distance. Visit the Wensleydale creamery for a taster of every variety of local Wensleydale cheese imaginable (Wallace and Gromit would approve!!!) Or take a trip to the Forbidden Corner at Middleham, a wonderful day out that will delight all ages!
