Also on the ground floor is the charming conservatory, where you can take advantage of the views across the Dales or head out onto the wrap around balcony, which in turn takes you down to the landscaped gardens and access to the hot tub. The ground floor bedroom and en-suite offers easy access. 

Upstairs, the small study area provides a laptop for guests to use. Each of the two other stunning bedrooms all feature the same quality of décor and furnishings, resulting in the ultimate sleep experience.

Beautiful house! Only problem is I now want to go home and redecorate my entire house! A shame we didn't get an opportunity to meet Clare & family but they sent us lots of friendly & helpful messages. We had a really wonderful time

Past Customer,

Wow! What a place! Stunning house with every detail just perfect! Clare & family made us feel extremely welcome. We've loved the local areas and ate some amazing proper food! We've all really loved our stay so much we've already booked to come back can't wait!

Past Customer,

Our stay at Feathered Nest far exceeded our expectations. The property, furnishings, layout, decor and design were superb. It was absolutely faultless, the attention to detail was second to none. It felt more like a luxury home than a holiday letting, the host was lovely and the welcome pack was exactly what we needed after a long drive. We had such an enjoyable stay, the best we have had at a holiday stay property. We will definitely be back!

Mrs Amy L,

The attention to detail, styling, furnishings and luxury level of comfort have made our stay 6 star! We couldn't fault the place is it the best holiday home we have ever stayed in and it truly will be a Christmas to remember. We will definately be back. Thank you for the beautiful welcome hamper, sorry we couldn't eat/drink it all. We all got a little carried away at Campbells and have left you some things in the cupboard, fridge and freezer we hope you will be able to use. Enjoy the Gin and the chocolates. Lots of love
