Truly luxurious and unique Grade II listed Georgian manor house enjoying a prime location along the banks of the beautiful river Swale, boasting an immaculate interior, within the Yorkshire Dales.

Take a look inside this truly unique and fabulous Grade II listed Georgian Manor house set in an idyllic location in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Boasting its own private frontage on the banks of the River Swale and a waterfall running through the gardens, this magnificent property is made for those special get-togethers and memorable family celebrations. Come and stay in one of Yorkshire's most luxury holiday homes.

This property was transformed from a beautiful period building into a stylish and elegant home. Pale tones and contemporary styling brings the building to life and creates a gorgeous blend of comfort and grandeur.

Approached via a secluded lane along the river, your first glimpse of the handsome Georgian exterior is a real joy. Beautiful sash windows and an arched doorway invite you into a large and impressive entrance hall. Yorkshire flagstones underfoot lead you towards the grand staircase and that's when you realise, this is a very special house indeed.

Most of the ground floor is taken up by the open-plan reception rooms encompassing the living room and formal dining space. The living room is a statement in modern style, dominated by a huge original fireplace complete with a roaring open fire. Chic contemporary furniture gives the room a bright and welcoming feel, and three large sash windows offer a bird's eye view of the gardens and river beyond. Original window shutters give a sense of period glamour. For those family movie nights, a TV with Freesat and DVD player is provided. There's a sound system covering most of the house which can also be used for Bluetooth music streaming. And to keep the kids happy, a PlayStation and traditional board games are available too.

Wander through to the stunning formal dining room, a lesson in understated elegance with its blend of modern and traditional styles. Antique furniture contracts with contemporary here and another original fireplace provides the perfect backdrop to a special candlelit dinner. This is the sort of dining room you'll want to dress up for.

Make your way down to the lower ground level to discover a charming country kitchen complete with an informal dining area; just the place for a late night catch-up over a bottle of red. Underfloor heating keeps this room nice and toasty and another stone fireplace adds traditional character. All the expected mod cons are provided within the bespoke kitchen including a dishwasher, range cooker with induction hob, combi microwave oven and grill, coffee maker and fridge/freezer. An antique cupboard offers plenty of storage and original stone window seats offer a place to rest while rustling up a family roast. A further TV and DVD player are provided in this cosy kitchen.

The lower ground level also has a handy cloak room, laundry room with washer/dryer and boot room. If you have the family dog with you this area has direct access from the back door, so it's the perfect place to dry them off after a walk in the hills.

Back up to the ground floor to discover the first of four bedrooms, the Library room. This charming room features a king-size bed, exposed floor boards, soft peaceful colours and quirky touches. Bookcases line the walls of the snug area in this room offering a host of reading material and a comfy armchair from which to enjoy them.

The remaining three bedrooms are set on the first floor at the top of the beautiful wooden staircase. The breathtaking master bedroom offers uninterrupted views of the river and Yorkshire Dales from two large windows. The super king-size bed boasts an original fireplace and an en-suite with a large bath with marble surround and showerhead attached to the taps.

The third bedroom sits at the front of the house, another lovely room with a contemporary king-size canopy bed commissioned by the owners and made by an artisan blacksmith. This room interconnects via a lockable door with the fourth and final bedroom, a charming twin room which can also be set up as a king-size double room if preferred. A bespoke wooden headboard designed and made by local craftsman using reclaimed floorboards from an old Lancashire cotton mill give this room real character and substance. This room can also be accessed from the landing. If you don't request a preference, it will be set as a twin.

The family bathroom sits next door, a spacious and grand room with traditional his and her sinks, a large bath tub and a separate walk-in power shower. Open the window, run yourself a long hot bath, sink in and enjoy the river views.

In addition to the gorgeous interiors, this property offers much within its extensive grounds to enjoy. Step out of the back door onto the terrace, with views across the large lawned garden and down to your private river frontage. There's an additional paved terrace set right by the river complete with comfy seating so you can chill with the sound of running water below, sheer heaven on a warm summer's day. A firepit/BBQ allows you to extend your time outdoors well into the evening. Snuggle up under a blanket and watch the sun set over the hills with the sights and sounds of Yorkshire wildlife all around.

To the front of the house is a large cobbled area providing off road parking for the whole family.

Please note, due to the extensive grounds the gardener visits this property every week on Mondays. As the house sits on the River Swale, children must be supervised at all times.

There is a security deposit of £350 to be paid direct to the owner 48 hours prior to your arrival.

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

Please note there is a refundable £350 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

This holiday home is in a breathtaking location set on the banks of the River Swale in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Nestling within its own private grounds, the surrounding countryside is nothing short of spectacular. Without doubt one of the finest locations of any holiday home in Yorkshire.

This property is set just a few miles from the charming village of Low Row, an excellent option for lunch, dinner or a slap-up Sunday roast as it’s within walking distance from the house (just under 1.5 miles). Reeth is 5 miles and another beautiful Dales village set around a large village green and offers lots more choice for eats with several pubs, cafes and a great restaurant on offer.

Just beyond the village is the stunning countryside of Swaledale. The scenery all around is real picture-postcard stuff, with ancient old drystone barns peppering the dramatic hills and valleys. May sees the annual Swaledale Festival, two weeks of amazing music, art, walking and culture and the delightful Muker show in September is another calendar highlight.

This area of the Dales is also particularly renowned for its spectacular wild flower meadows in the spring. People come from all over the world to see the fields come alive with every colour under the rainbow, a unique phenomenon due to the fact that the local farmers don't use chemicals on the fields. But every season has its charm, from the lush green summers to the dramatic and beautiful winters. And with no street light pollution for miles around, the stars at night are dazzling.

It is a true walker's paradise here and there are some beautiful walks from your doorstep. The circular walk around Blades (less than 2 miles) is lovely and the famous Coast to Coast Walk.

And of course, this is supreme cycling country, why not challenge yourself and some friends to take on the mighty Buttertubs Pass, 8 miles from the cottage?

We also recommend taking a tour of the Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Dales Trail, a circular route that passes through Low Row and takes you through some of the most dramatic scenery in the UK. This land of Viking place names, waterfalls, rivers and ravines is like nowhere else on the planet, don't forget to take the camera. And on the way back down you can stop for lunch at one of the traditional pubs locally.

The handsome Georgian town of Richmond is 16 miles away and a great option for a day trip with its castle, restaurants and independent shops. We also recommend the circular walk from Richmond Station along to Easby Abbey and back.

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.
