Tucked between the historic market town of Richmond and the dainty village of Gilling West, this charming property is an ideal escape to reconnect and celebrate with the ones you love. Set on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales with an abundance of scenic trails on your doorstep, you'll soon be donning your walking boots ready for an adventure. Travel back in time with a visit to Richmond Castle, or sample delicacies from local traders on the cobbled market square. If you prefer a slower pace, there's a fantastic spa offering an extra slice of luxury, rounded off with a hearty supper at a nearby village pub.
Originally the family home of the Earl and Countess Ronaldshay, this elegant house combines period charm with contemporary comfort. The heart of the home is the exquisite drawing room, offering a sophisticated and deliciously comfortable space to relax by the open fire. Step through to the conservatory for an aperitif and breathtaking views of the garden, before an evening of fine dining by candlelight in the grand hall. You'll discover the impressive kitchen just along the hallway with French doors leading out to a pretty courtyard. The kitchen is well-equipped with an AGA-style oven, an additional gas oven and hob, an American-style fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. A further fridge/freezer and dishwasher is located in the utility room. Wake up to fresh coffee and sizzling bacon, best enjoyed at the farmhouse dining table, or in the adjoining light-filled breakfast room. Next to the kitchen, the games room is an inviting setting to watch the Sky TV over a game of cards. Weary from the day's activities, retire for the night to one of nine bedrooms, each one unique with a different bathroom arrangement.
Downstairs you'll find a cosy twin with access to a walk-in shower room, whilst upstairs you'll find a further eight bedrooms: three super-kings, three twins, a single with additional trundle bed, and a double located adjacent to the laundry room. Back downstairs there's also a handy boot room, two separate WC's, and two cloakrooms for storing coats and shoes.
Outside, experience the sights and sounds of the quintessentially English countryside as you stroll through the enchanting walled garden. The garden furniture provides an irresistible spot for a traditional cream tea on the lawn, with lashings of clotted cream and jam.
