Steeped in history, this beautiful Grade II-listed property provides the perfect retreat for large families to enjoy some quality time together and explore Nidderdale and the Yorkshire Dales.
Luxuriate in a stay at this splendid former farmhouse, set within the village of Dacre Banks in the heart of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The beautiful stone property, which dates back to the 1800s, sleeps eight guests and two dogs, making it a perfect choice for two families keen to escape together or a party of friends or extended family members seeking a spacious and special holiday home.
With five bedrooms and an exquisite garden, there is ample space for everyone to spread out, relax and really enjoy themselves. The superb setting, also within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, makes it an ideal choice for all those who are passionate about the great outdoors.
Open the door onto this gorgeous period home, which is still rich in original features, such as stone floors and beamed ceilings. Head to the central, farmhouse-style kitchen/diner to make a cup of tea on the gas-fired Aga or extra gas hob, then leave dinner roasting while you amble on through to the inviting lounge. Like the rest of the ground floor, this room should be toasty and warm thanks to the underfloor heating but do light the open fire in here too for that additional country home ambience.
Settle down to your favourite programme on the TV/DVD with an Amazon Firestick, read your book for a while or wander through to the dining room, where there is a baby grand piano and now ornamental range, to lay the table for dinner. You’ll find a boot room, utility room and WC are all also downstairs.
Climb the stairs to the next level to lay your head down for the night in either of the beautiful, super-king-size bedrooms; each of these has an en-suite shower room and one can be arranged as twins if discussed at the time of booking. Find another super-king-size room, which can also become twins if arranged, plus two doubles and a family bathroom on the floor above. Children will love to retreat to the low-ceilinged, games room, which is at the attic-floor level and has a Smart TV, PlayStation2 and mini pool table.
Savour the beauty of the luscious garden at this village holiday home. Watch the children and energetic hounds race across the grass. Dine outside at the table in the charming, flagstone courtyard. Light the BBQ on summer evenings and bask in the last of the glorious sunshine. You can store your bikes at this holiday home, which also comes with parking for three cars.
