About the property

Bungalow in Redmire, Nr. Leyburn, Wensleydale, Yorkshire Dales, England - Sleeps up to 7 in 4 bedrooms, up to 2 dogs welcome, 3 mins walk to the Pub

Flax Mill ticks many boxes for families with members of all ages, being largely on one floor. The space, both inside and out, is a major feature, with high wood panelled ceilings and two lounges for relaxing, so that the different generations in a party can enjoy relaxing in their own way all under one roof. Patios at both front and rear give the best chance for outdoor relaxing and dining, with particularly lovely views from the rear. The 'Secret Garden' with secluded areas and an orchard are a favourite with children looking to explore, or let off steam.

Parking next to the bungalow brings easy access for unloading and parking for two cars. 2 well behaved pets are welcome, we just ask for £24.50 per pet, per week.

About The Disneys

Our love of the Yorkshire Dales (inc honeymoon in 1992) led to a dream being fulfilled in 2011 with our first (neighbouring) cottage in Redmire. A warm welcome from the villagers and the nearby excellent Bolton Arms confirmed that Redmire was also the place for our first foray into letting a holiday home. One of us tries to be on hand to welcome guests and explain the extensive amenities and grounds that your party can enjoy, with orchard and small paddock, great for children and dogs.

Although only opened in August 2014, we are pleased with the delightful comments guests have made, mostly about the spacious interior and grounds and how Flax Mill has 'everything they need'. Our guests' comfort is our paramount concern and we want you to feel Flax Mill lives up to, and exceeds, our claim.

The Disneys purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why The Disneys chose Yorkshire Dales

Apart from the pub, friendly villagers and views, convenience is a big plus for Redmire, with Leyburn and its small supermarkets and speciality stores only 5 miles away and lots of local attractions to visit. Walkers and cyclists will find ample trips and walks on the doorstep, with (for the energetic) no need to get in the car to see Castle Bolton, Redmire Falls, Bolton Hall, Aysgarth Falls and the Wensleydale Railway at its Redmire terminus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures really don't do this place justice. Great facilities, and so many lovely personal touches. A very short walk to the pub and a great location for exploring the Dales.

Warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 weeks in Flax Mill..It was spacious , warm and comfortable. We had family and friends visit over the 3 weeks and all were impressed with the cotttage. The owners had decorated the house with Christmas decorations and together with a lovely wood fire in the main lounge made a true English Christmas atmosphere. We can highly recommend Flax Mill and wish to thank the owners for providing such wonderful accommodation.
