About Mrs Juliet Elliott

I am a farmer's wife who bought this property with an eye to retiring there - though retirement seems to be receding faster and faster! Although we farm in Wensleydale and Nottinghamshire I see to all the changeovers myself, which has worked very well over the years.

Mrs Juliet Elliott purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Mrs Juliet Elliott chose Yorkshire Dales

I think Manor House chose us. As soon as we walked into the property we felt at home and all renovations have been done with our retirement dream in mind. Though only fifteen minutes from the town of Leyburn, West Scrafton is truly rural, very peaceful and with friendly residents.

What makes this cottage unique

Manor House is a walker's delight in that one has only to cross the village road and one is onto the moors. The many footpaths around the village cater for all abilities whilst for the less active such attractions as The Hidden Corner or watching the racehorses exercise on the Middleham Gallops are only a few minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for a cracking week in a beautiful, cosy and very comfortable cottage. we loved all the quirky and homely touches and found all needs thoroughly catered for. The peace and space was most welcome.

Beautiful and characterful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for a family occasion in the village and found it a delightful mixture of quirky and practical. It was warm, comfortable, spacious and well-equipped. Hard to leave!
