Wensleydale Farmhouse


Your hosts Bruce and Sheila invite you to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay at their beautiful B&B in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

A message to all our friends and guests

In light of the current coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the decision to temporarily close our B&B here in Aysgarth for the time being. This is because we fully support the government advice and guidelines, and of course we want to protect the health of all our guests as well as that of the wider community.

We are constantly monitoring the situation, and of course will reopen as soon as it becomes safe to do so. In the meantime, guests may still contact us directly to make reservations for later in the year, or next year.

In the end this was an easy decision to take as the situation worsened. By closing to all guests, we are supporting the public in their efforts to maintain social distancing and avoid unnecessary travel.

Comments from our Visitors' Book

“Five fabulous nights' stay. Fabulous French Toast, fabulous weather, fabulous hosts. What more could we have wanted? Definitely be back to explore more of this wonderful place!”

On arrival, guests are welcomed with home-made cake and hot drinks served in the cosy Snug. Bruce and Sheila share a wealth of knowledge about the local area, as well as the Dales in general, and are happy to chat with you at this time. For additional information, maps and guide books are available for guests to borrow from the bookshelf during their stay.

Our 3 guest bedrooms are all ensuite and contain double or king-size beds, and there is free wifi throughout.

We pride ourselves on our delicious breakfast menu; Bruce’s home made granola and Sheila’s Fabulous French Toast are particular favourites of guests!

Set in the village of Aysgarth, Wensleydale Farmhouse lies within a short walking distance of the famous Aysgarth Falls, providing an excellent base for exploring the Dale, getting together with friends and family, or meeting business colleagues. It’s perfect for that relaxing weekend getaway, or energetic break in the fresh air!

The house, originally the farmhouse for Wensleydale Farm, was built around 1870 and enjoys spectacular, open views across the valley of the River Ure towards Carperby Moor on the North side, and the majestic Penhill at the start of Bishopdale to the South.
