Property code: 60201

This superb property dates back over 200 years ago and was once the heart of a working family farm, completely renovated with plenty of period charm with a contemporary twist, this property is ideally located for everyone.

This gorgeous detached farmhouse on the outskirts of the peaceful village of Hudswell in Yorkshire is the ideal property for large groups of families or friends. Perfectly positioned within stunning Swaledale, guests can make the most of the Yorkshire Dales National Park; there is a wealth of walking trails and cycling routes to discover as well as plenty of market towns/villages to stroll around, such as Richmond (3.5 miles) and Reeth (9.5 miles). Often referred to as ‘the capital of Swaledale’, Reeth is a delightful village at the base of a natural amphitheatre with some stunning panoramic views and scenery. It also has a range of shops and restaurants to choose from and a regular market. There is plenty of heritage in the area as Reeth once played a vital role in the lead-mining industry. The village of Hudswell itself is a small village but has a pub which is ideal when you don’t feel like cooking.

The owners have lovingly renovated this 200-year-old house to ensure original features sit effortlessly alongside contemporary design. Each room has its own unique style with an eclectic mix of furniture and artwork, which adds character, interest and flair throughout.

The large, well-equipped kitchen/diner has everything you’ll need to cater for you and your fellow guests. It is bright and airy with neutral greys and whites reflecting light, which is a stark contrast to the sumptuous deep tones and rich textures in the adjacent lounge. This is a cosy room where you can snuggle up in front of the wood burner of an evening.

On the ground floor, you will also find a pretty double bedroom, a twin bedroom with access to the garden and a bathroom with a shower. Up the cottage-style stairs, you will find three further bedrooms (one double, one four-poster and one twin), which are once again all stylishly decorated and have views of the garden. There is also a lovely family bathroom on this floor.

Outside, you will find a tranquil, enclosed garden and patio area with garden furniture, a fire pit and a sheltered charcoal BBQ area. The kids will love the play equipment provided for them and saying hello to the neighbouring sheep, lambs and horses. A large shed is ideal bicycle storage and there are stables for four horses next to the property. There is ample off-road parking for six cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 5 Bedrooms – 1 four poster, 2 doubles and 2 twins
  • 1 Shower room, 1 bathroom and 1 en-suite bathroom
  • Electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer and microwave
  • Stabling for 4 horses - arranged direct with the owner
  • Wood burner (first basket of logs provided)
  • Electric and central heating included
  • Off-road parking for 6 cars
  • Wi-Fi included
  • 2 Dogs welcome
  • Pub a short walk from the property
  • Storage for bikes
  • Smart TV in the lounge
  • Fire pit and sheltered charcoal BBQ

Richmond (3.5 miles) is a charming market town on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale. It boasts an 11th-century castle, fine Georgian architecture, a historic Georgian theatre and a large cobbled market square as some of its many attractions. Stroll into town for a cup of Yorkshire tea at one of the many tea rooms there or pop over for dinner at one of the excellent restaurants.

The gorgeous River Swale runs through the town and less than a mile across the river are the River Swale Waterfalls (3 miles from the property). You can walk in either direction along the river and deep into the countryside without having to go anywhere near the car. We also recommend exploring the restored former Richmond Railway Station which has lots to entertain young and old including a small cinema, cafe/restaurant, gallery, microbrewery and artisan bakery.

Richmond is also known as 'The Gateway to the Dales' so expect stunning Dales scenery within minutes of leaving the town. Peppering this glorious countryside are countless attractive little towns and villages and if you enjoy a bit of surreal entertainment, how about a visit to the quite brilliant Forbidden Corner, an attraction full of statues and hidden surprises, 10.5 miles away near Middleham.

The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey, is just 5.5 miles away. Set on the banks of the River Swale, the Abbey is the perfect spot for a picnic in the summer months. There are lots of other breathtaking sights to explore in the Dales, including Aysgarth Falls (11.5 miles) which were featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves!

The nearby village of Aysgarth (16 miles) boasts many great options to eat and, if you visit in spring, you can’t leave without a visit to Freeholders’ Wood where bluebells, anemones and primroses will be in full bloom.

This is a superb area for walkers and cyclists with many routes from the doorstep or just a short distance away, including Alfred Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast Walk which passes close by, and the Pennine Way (around 20 miles away).

Lovely cottage in a great location, big enough for all of us. Warm even in winter. Peaceful but only a short drive to lots of amenities.

Although perhaps needs some care attention, this could be due to being booked without some DIY able to be done - however the property was enjoyed and loved by all the family.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
