We love the location. It felt like a lot of care and attention has gone into making The Bield a fantastic little cottage. Wonderfully modern, but maintains the cottages original character. Spotlessly clean and would 100% come again to the cottage. Super!29-Sep-2018

Description and Location
The Bield is both a charming and quaint detached, dales cottage sitting towards the eastern end of the village overlooking the narrow green. The cottage has been successively renovated and extended over many years and has recently been refurbished to the high standard it now presents.
Access is through a walled border garden, with a patio area, to a small entrance porch at the front of the cottage. The porch gives access to a cosy lounge with inset wood-burning stove with classic pine surround and mantel, traditional open beamed ceiling and support post. Through the lounge is a dining room with ample space for family eating and the benefit of a picture window looking towards the green. This in turn leads to a modern, compact but well equipped kitchen with quarry tiled floor and a utility room with laundry facilities, freezer, dishwasher and adjacent toilet.
An open tread pine staircase rises from the dining room to a landing serving three bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, one double and one twin and a bathroom with bath, sprinkler shower, washbasin and toilet.
There is a small, secure garden to the rear of the cottage which can be reached from the road by a wide pathway or by an external door in the utility room. The larger front garden is a pleasant place to sit and enjoy the sunshine, perhaps for alfresco breakfast or lunch in the peaceful air of a small village with little through traffic.
The Bield is a dales cottage of character and distinctive charm which over the years has developed into a family home rather than a small cottage. Much of the original and often quirky features have been retained but it has been decorated and furnished with style, simplicity and modernity sympathetic to its heritage and has all the needs of contemporary life.
If there will be no more than 4 in your party coming to the cottage we can offer 15% discount from the published price. Discounted price is quoted below in 'Check Price' and 'Booking Details' if 4 or less in your party details.
About Thornton Rust
Thornton Rust sits at the rocky edge of an escarpment running along the lower slopes of the stately Addlebrough, one of the most prominent and recognisable skyline features in mid-Wensleydale. The lofty position on the escarpment gives splendid views over upper and mid-Wensleydale and the plateau it forms is fertile meadowland but soon meets the steeper slopes of pasture rising to the peat moor in the shadow of Addlebrough. A sleepy backwater with little through traffic and linked by minor roads to the A684 at Worton near Bainbridge to the west and Aysgarth to the east.
