ESCAPE to the country in this stunning two-bed cottage that featured heavily in BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, and is now available to rent for just £14 per person per night.
Incredible images show the exterior of the quaint cottage as well as the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Other stunning pictures show that the cottage has been fully renovated with a modern kitchen, cosy living room and spacious bedrooms.
Helwith Cottage is located near Marske in the remote hamlet of Helwith, Yorkshire and sits on the edge of the 7,000-acre Barningham and Holgate Estate, owned by Sir Edward and Lady Milbank and can be rented on cottages.com for £405 for a week stay. As the cottage sleeps four this works out at just £14 per person for each night.
““The estate, as a whole, has been in the Milbank family for a number of years (since 1690), so when my husband’s parents decided that it was time to pass Barningham onto the next generation, it was a privilege to take on the next phase of the estate’s life,” said Lady Milbank.
“Understanding the importance of tourism in the beautiful Dales, we were keen to continue with our programme of restoring the numerous redundant farm buildings.
“The hamlet of Helwith used to be a thriving community, however as the lead and tin manufacturing activities in the area declined, so did the population.”
All Creatures Great and Small is a British television series based on the books of the British veterinary surgeon Alf Wight, who wrote under the pseudonym James Herriot.
The BBC series had two runs: the original (1978 to 1980, based directly on Herriot’s books) was for three series; the second (1988 to 1990, filmed with original scripts) for four. A total of ninety episodes were broadcast.
