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

Escape to the Yorkshire Dales National Park at this attractive 17th-century stone farmhouse, which boasts country walks, miles of unspoilt countryside, and a wealth of wildlife to discover on its doorstep. Tucked away down an uneven, private farm track, you will feel a world away from everyday life – although there is a traditional pub near by if you want to delve back in for a moment. The property comfortably sleeps eight across four traditional and homely bedrooms, while a games barn and snug room add extra space to relax and unwind, making it great for holidays with friends and big family getaways.

 

Decorated in a traditional style throughout, gorgeous flagstone floors in every room, an original stone staircase and beautiful exposed beams add to the country aesthetic. Put your feet up after a day of exploring in the lounge, which lies at the heart of the home, where the whole group can catch up around the open fire or even play a board game. For those wishing for something even quieter, retreat to the snug, where a wood burner and TV for DVD use only await – perfect for a cosy evening in. White-washed walls make the farmhouse kitchen feel light and airy, while bespoke units, a solid wood worktop, and a stable door leading out to the yard add further charm. Enjoy a big group dinner and plan tomorrow's adventures in the dining room or step outside for an al fresco meal under the sheltered area in the garden, with the rolling hills providing a picturesque backdrop. After dinner, unwind and perhaps show off your competitive side across the yard in the games barn, where you will find a pool table, a table tennis table, and more. The four bedrooms are simply and delicately decorated with neutral tones and exposed floorboards, allowing the stunning traditional furniture and the breathtaking views to take centre stage. Off-road parking is available.

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

  • The property is accessed via a working farm track that can be uneven at times. The final approach is up a short steep incline. Both tracks are suitable for normal vehicles if approached with due care.

 

Adopt a slower pace of life here in the hamlet of Horsehouse, where keen ramblers will find plenty of footpaths and trails to explore. Visit Middleham's magnificent castle – once titled the ‘Windsor of the North' – and wander the town's cobbled market squares and streets. Fans of art and culture will love the array of galleries here, too. Tee up at Akebar Park's golf course (13.5 miles) or enjoy brewery tours at Theakston and Black Sheep (both 16 miles), while for a more family-friendly day out, head to Lightwater Valley Theme Park (21.5 miles) or Camp Hill Adventure Park (24.5 miles).

This was exactly what we wanted.... in the middle of nowhere, no TV and a time for us to sit as a family and talk, have fun and play games to bring in the new year!

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

Reviewed by Mark, 30th August 2019

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. Great wRead morealking. Highly recommend. Hide

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.

Reviewed by David, 21st July 2018

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.
