This spacious farmhouse sympathetically combines traditional features with contemporary touches creating the perfect retreat for those looking to immerse themselves in the surrounding countryside.

This attractive stone farmhouse in the hamlet of Horsehouse in the Yorkshire Dales stands majestically in its rural setting, offering guests country walks, tranquillity and a wealth of British wildlife to enjoy. Tucked away down an uneven, private farm track, the journey is well worth it as you'll find a traditional farmhouse, perfect for escaping your hectic pace of life and adopting a slower, more relaxing one. Keen ramblers will find plenty of walks from the doorstep, but for those wanting to go further afield, the surrounding area offers a variety of historic landmarks and market towns/villages with independent shops, pubs and tea rooms.

The lounge is at the heart of this traditional home, where guests can gather around the open fire and appreciate the period features such as the exposed beams and stone fireplace, or dive into a book or board game. For those looking for something quieter, there is also a snug with its own wood burner and TV for DVD use only - there should be something for everyone in the DVD collection. There are gorgeous Yorkshire flagstone floors in every room, but fear not as there is underfloor heating and a NEST heating system to keep the rest of the house warm. As you would expect from a farmhouse of this size, the kitchen is delightful; white-washed walls make it feel light and airy, whilst all the mod-cons bring it into the 21st century. A stable door allows you to admire the breathtaking views whilst you prepare food on the oak worktops or the quaint pastry table in the centre of the room. Across the yard, there is a barn containing the washing machine and dryer. The dining room is also spacious making it the ideal setting for sociable mealtimes. Ascending the original, stone staircase, you will arrive at the four bedrooms, which are all simply furnished allowing the traditional furniture to take centre stage. There is a large, king-size master bedroom with en-suite, which includes a luxurious roll-top bath. There is one double bedroom and two twin bedrooms, one of which has a modern en-suite, with the other bedrooms sharing the lovely family bathroom. All of the bedrooms have charming exposed floorboards and amazing views.

Outside, there is plenty of space to enjoy as the house occupies a vast plot. There is also a sheltered area by the kitchen door with patio furniture for al fresco dining against a picturesque backdrop. If the kids still need tiring out at the end of a busy day, send them to the games barn which houses a pool table, a table-tennis table and a ‘Ring the Bull' game. There are barns available for bike storage if required.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Fantastic property in fabulous (but remote) location. We used it for a family break and all three generations enjoyed it. We would go back.

Some big positives and a few negatives. Positives are the comfy beds, well-equipped kitchen and the (albeit cold even in August) games barn. Main negatives are the limited and generally uncomfortable seating in the main lounge, the lack of seating in the snug, and the generally old fashioned decor. With a bit of money spent / modernisation this plaRead morece could be amazing. Hide

A lovely well equipped cottage in a quiet location, with great views.

Create the possibility for a bed on the ground floor for people with lesser walking abilities.

Great bolt hole. We were extremely lucky with fantastic weather which I know makes a difference (especially in February!) but we had a great family weekend. It is rural and a long track off the road, but we all absolutely loved it. Well equipped, as per the pictures, loved the chandelier in the barn over the table tennis table which quirky.

Fantastic property in a beautiful location. We had a great week at Arundel Grange, with walks right on our doorstep and beautiful scenery all around. We would definitely come back to the Yorkshire Dales.

A beautiful cottage in a stunning natural location. Swallows, Swifts, Hares, a Barn Owl and a Heron all seen within a hundred yards of the house. Excellent pubs throughout the area and fascinating local history with plenty of Castles and other ruins to engage children and adults alike.

We havent rated the immediate local amenities because apart from a pub there werent any - but we knew that when we booked (so it would be unfair to score) and we travelled well prepared...... we loved the comparative isolation! However it was easy, via a short and scenic drive, to get to Middleham, Leyburn or the farm shop. The welcome hamper was mRead moreuch appreciated after a seven-hour drive.Its a beautiful location and the house has been sympathetically renovated, reflecting its history. It has a comfortable ambiance and spacious accommodation. Our London-based adult offspring soaked up the clean air and night silence. We liked the subtle distancing from the twenty-first century (the WiFi in the den will keep those having withdrawal symptoms happy); the beautiful views from the house across the valley; stunning walks in the area and abundant and varied wildlife. Lovely.Cant wait to return! Hide
