Cottage/Bothy in Yorkshire Dales, West Burton, Wensleydale, England, UK - Romantic Retreat Nesled In A Secluded And Peaceful Valley
About Juliet Maddan
I was born in Wensleydale and my ancestors have been living here for several generations. I am mother of three boys and one girl. It is wonderful that my husband and I have been able to bring our children up in such an unspoilt place. We would love to share this special place and give you a base to explore. We have experienced the beauty of the dales by walking, riding, fishing and canoeing.
Juliet Maddan purchased this Barn in 1949

Wow, Beautiful and so special
We stayed for 3 nights 15th - 18th April. Juliet was there to meet us and made us very welcome. We met the dogs, horses and sheep and were blessed by fantastic weather and lambs skipping around. The Bothy is absolutely stunning and very well thought out. It has a gorgeous interior and everything you need to enjoy your stay. Juliet has clearly thought of everything, especially after along day out walking. The location and surrounding areas are so relaxing and it reminds you so much of the important things in life. We had such a special time here. Juliet and family obviously work so hard to make guests feel relaxed. The property is very reasonably priced and well positioned for local walks and road network for further adventures.Thank you so much and we will definitely be back to make more memories.
