This family owned and managed holiday cottage enjoys spectacular south facing views across Coverdale which can be enjoyed from both open plan living areas. The stone cottage, set in its own mature garden, has been recently renovated whilst retaining much of its original character. Close to countless attractions yet secluded, this holiday cottage offers all visitors a peaceful haven however you wish to spend your day. The closest pub is a short walk from the cottage. The market town Leyburn 4 miles from village offers great shopping for visitors. As a tributary to the popular Wensleydale, Coverdale is a forgotten gem of the Yorkshire Dales is surrounded by ancient byways and footpaths and brimming with wildlife. Mile House East is the perfect base from which to explore the Dales whether by foot, bike or car. An extensive network of footpaths can be accessed from the village.
Mile House East is a cottage that has been in our family for nearly 50 years. It is a home from home to my brother and I and our families. The children adore it..

Mile House East is a cottage that has been in our family for nearly 50 years and is currently owned by brothers Peter and Andy McKinlay. We have been able to refurbish and upgrade the property but retain the original features in this lovely old house. Last year we were able to extend the first floor into the old barn and create a large second living space as well as a fifth bedroom and second bathroom. Our families regularly use the cottage ourselves and we now have plenty of space. With three growing children in each family every corner of the dales becomes our adventure playground.
Wonderful countryside at your front door. Close to both Leyburn - a thriving market town where you can pick up anything you need for your stay. Community owned pub - The Foresters Arms - witin walking distance. Forbidden Corner - voted Best Family Day out 2012 - a few miles away.

Our family stay at Mile House East was wonderful. The cottage was clean warm and extremely well equipped. The snooker table added another fun dimension and the library had something for everyone! We would certainly consider revisiting.
