A period country residence for up to 16 people with magnificent south-facing views
A wonderful venue for everyone
A warm Yorkshire welcome awaits – cosy fires, comfy beds with crisp white linen, fine dining in style, with well-equipped and modern facilities. The perfect place to relax and entertain with friends and family.
The generously proportioned rooms have been furnished in a traditional style combining luxury and comfort. Fabrics and soft furnishings have been carefully chosen to reflect the period with many designs by William Morris including the famous ‘Strawberry Thief” and ‘Forest’.
Original features including shutters, service bells and ‘shouty holes’, high corniced ceilings, marble fireplaces, secret chambers and passages have been carefully preserved.
The kitchen, Pantry and Bootroom are modern and well-equipped with everything you’ll need during your stay. The bathrooms are modern with a twist of character in each.
The Dales are a walker’s paradise but we’ve plenty more going on besides:- our lovely waterfalls and famous drives such as the Buttertubs Pass are a ‘must do’. 2014 saw the Tour de France visit us and its legacy remains with many challenging cycle routes in the area. Foodies will enjoy the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes, the Black Sheep Brewery and Cuckoo Hill ice cream parlour. White Rose candle makers and Bolton Castle are another must while you’re here. The more adventurous might want to organise a caving expedition down the ‘Fairies Hole’ at Crackpot, take the Alpacas out round the village or contact Sam at Alfresco Adventures for other great ideas.
We want to be sure you have everything to hand when you visit so we provide the best equipment from an Aga cooker (plus a conventional oven and hob as backup) 3 fridges, a freezer, dishwasher and microwave.
Lovely soft towels and guest soaps are provided in the bedrooms and bathrooms.
Drying facilities are available in the spacious boot room and there’s even a wet room to shower off the outdoors you’ve collected on your leggings, boots and the dog!
