Property code: G0053

Located within a sprawling estate with an extremely well-kept garden (which you can explore to your heart’s content during your stay), this bijou property is a true delight to stay in. Stay here as a solo traveller or as a couple for a memorable break hiking through spectacular countryside and discovering picturesque villages and traditional pubs. The small-but-perfectly-formed dwelling is in a pretty rural location between two national parks, with the best that Yorkshire has to offer right on your doorstep.

Renovated to an exceptional standard, this sweet Grade-II-listed property marries historical features with modern luxury for an inviting atmosphere. An exposed stone wall on one side, and pretty, original wooden ceiling beams in the bedroom create an atmospheric setting. Step into a cosy kitchen-diner, perfectly arranged to make the most of the space, with the sink tucked away under the stairwell and a small eating area for candlelit meals. On sunny days, take your plates out to the courtyard to soak up views over the formal parterre gardens as you tuck in. The downstairs bathroom features a monsoon shower for a hotel-like washing experience. Upstairs, a welcoming double bedroom with a Juliet balcony creates a comfy sleep spot.

Nearby, wander to the pub 0.5 miles away or take a short drive to a pretty market town like Bedale or Leyburn (4.5 miles and 8.5 miles respectively). Plan day hikes through the popular Dales, trekking through undulating hills and sweeping valleys, or perhaps exploring the scenic moorlands of Nidderdale (19 miles), an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The 14th-century Bolton Castle (14.5 miles) makes a wonderful day trip, while the dog will love the woodland walk to the gushing Aysgarth Falls (15 miles).

We wanted a relaxing break and this was ideal. I would have preferred a restaurant or pub close by without having to use the car but overall enjoyed the stay

Located in a beautiful area of Yorkshire. We enjoyed good weather, which makes a big difference if you enjoy walking from the door. Very peaceful and restful site. We drove to N.T. properties and Gorge nearby. Some pubs have closed. We enjoyed a lovely Lamb Shank at the King's Head, in Kettlewell, after walking around the lovely village and church Read moregarden. Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and New Year at the summer house. The perfect way to see in 2023. The hot tub was fab, we recommend the drop and dip service so its ready and up to temperature on your first night - we didnt take advantage of it but would definitely do it on future visits. If you sit still the light will go out and you can gaze at theRead more stars. The accommodation was wonderful and incredibly well laid out, really cosy and comfy bed too. Highly recommended Hide

This property looks nice but we found the overall stay most un-relaxing & we left after 1 night. Bedroom is small but comfortable & quiet. Downstairs is so small that it simply doesn't work. Washing up is awkward, you have to put your head under the stairs & into the corner to get to the sink! Hob took 15 minutes to boil water. Shower ran out of hoRead moret water, WIFI didn't work & bar stools were very uncomfortable. You can sit outside but there's no lighting at night. Very overpriced. Hide
