With a pub within a 5-minute stroll, this lovely property is the perfect option for family get-togethers and special celebrations.

 

Approaching this handsome stone-built house, you immediately appreciate that this is a solid and welcoming home. Step inside to discover a generous interior that lends itself perfectly to larger groups. Downstairs, the heart of the home is the beautiful open-plan kitchen and garden-room dining area. Heated flagstone flooring runs all the way through, connecting the space in a pleasing way.

 

The traditional kitchen offers heaps of work surface and has well-equipped cupboards and a lovely big dresser stocked with everything you'll need to rustle up a hearty family dinner. There's a TV in here with a breakfast bar for perching on with a glass of bubbly. An electric AGA keeps everything toasty (Mary Berry's AGA cookbook is a welcome addition!) with an additional combi microwave/oven and dishwasher provided for your convenience. A separate utility houses the washing machine and dryer.

 

Dining in the garden room is a real pleasure with views out across the garden and countryside beyond. French windows at the end of the room lead out onto a stone patio in the garden. There is ample room for eight people to dine at the large table, and at the other end of the room, you'll find a cosy snug area complete with candles and board games - perfect for a spot of after-dinner relaxing. There's an iPod Dock and sound system in here so you can dine to your favourite music.

 

Further internal French doors lead into the spacious sitting room. Boasting an open fire to curl up by and a choice of comfy sofas and easy chairs, mosey in here for a lazy Sunday afternoon watching a movie together. There's a Smart TV with DVD in here if you've brought some of the kid's favourites. Wi-Fi is provided and there's also a piano to tinkle on for some traditional entertainment. If the children need their own space from the adults (or vice-versa), there's an additional games room at the front of the house which comes complete with a TV, DVD, X-box and games, with bean bags to chill on. There's also a handy downstairs shower room and WC off the entrance hall.

 

All of the bedrooms in the house are upstairs. The spacious master bedroom sits to the front and features a king-size bed and views towards the village. This room also boasts a generous en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is another spacious double room, this time with glorious views out across the garden, paddock and countryside beyond. The third room is a charming twin with two full-size beds, and finally, you'll find the fourth bedroom at the rear of the house; a sweet room with a trundle bed which can be set up to sleep two adults very comfortably. The bathroom is also up here, another large room complete with a bath and shower overhead.

 

One of the loveliest things about the property is its beautiful mature garden. In addition to a sheltered patio with plenty of garden furniture, you'll also discover a lawned garden with a further mini-terrace at the rear of the garden. This spot is just perfect for that afternoon tipple with its gorgeous views of the paddock and rolling green Yorkshire scenery beyond. A Weber BBQ is available for those balmy summer evenings too and the children will love the tree swing at the back of the garden.

The house is set in a sleepy little village close to the town of Bedale on the cusp of Wensleydale. There's a village pub under a 5-minute stroll away which offers delicious pub grub, with lots of other well-regarded gastro pubs within easy driving distance. There's also a Deer Park a short walk from the house, where you can see Deer roaming freely in the park for most of the year.

Beyond the village, the attractive town of Bedale (4.5 miles) is worth a visit. Stop for a coffee before making your way around the town's antique shops. There's also a swimming pool here, a great rainy-day option if you have little ones with you, and nearby Catterick Garrison (6 miles) has a cinema too. In the opposite direction, you'll find the charming market town of Leyburn (9.5 miles) where you’ll find traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gathered around the handsome town square, which hosts a busy market every Friday. Leyburn is also home to the biggest auction centre outside of London if you fancy picking up a bargain. The nearby historic town of Richmond (8.5 miles) is similar in many ways and has a lovely setting along the River Swale.

There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of the house. Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle are both under 17 miles away and the picturesque villages of West Burton and Askrigg are within 21.5 miles, so an abundance of choices for things to do if you want to get out and about. If walking is your thing, the Yorkshire Dales are something of a walker's paradise with many beautiful walks from your doorstep. And there are plenty of options for cycling too in Tour De France country.

Lovely big house with all home comforts. Lots of seating areas for family members to spread around if required. We spent a lot of time in the dining/garden room which was spacious and bright and a nice big table for us all to sit around. Thank you for the hamper of local treats. We all had a great time.

A lovely stay in a comfortable, well-located house. There was plenty of kitchen storage and places in the house for all age groups to be together or enjoy time separately. A lovely pub is located in the village with great food and a good atmosphere. There are plenty of things to see and do in the area and we highly recommend this property.

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.
