Spacious Holiday House, near Kettlewell (DS257IN)

Surrounded by stunning scenery and located in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is The Property, an exceptionally spacious and well equipped detached stone built property sleeping 10 people in 5 bedrooms, plus 2 on the large sofa bed in the family room (if required). This impressive house (formerly two cottages and a barn) has many contemporary facilities including Smart TVs in the sitting room, family room and each bedroom, free wi-fi throughout and usb sockets in all rooms, whilst retaining bags of character and charm with part exposed stone walls, window seats with views of the dale and fells and exposed wooden columns. Situated in the centre of the delightful village of Kettlewell in Upper Wharfedale, The Property enjoys a quiet and idyllic position by the village maypole alongside Kettlewell Beck, home to brown trout and crayfish, as it flows from Great Whernside to the Wharfe.

The hand crafted kitchen incorporates a range of Bosch appliances including fridge, dishwasher, an electric oven and hob, and an AGA with two ovens and hotplates, charmingly situated beneath a feature wooden lintel. The twin Belfast sinks and expansive granite worktops enhance the facilities of this high quality and well equipped kitchen. The adjacent utility room contains a fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer plus tableware and equipment for terrace dining, boot and outdoor clothing storage.

Next to the kitchen the main dining room has a large table seating 10 people and feature open grate fireplace. Also directly off the kitchen the breakfast room has table and chairs for 6 with under-stairs storage for high chair, travel cot and safety gates.

The Property offers guests two separate reception rooms. The main sitting room has ample comfortable seating, a wood burning stove and a door leading to the terrace. This well lit room with windows to 3 sides and a wood burning stove is an ideal retreat for reading or relaxing on the luxurious sofas after a day exploring the local area. The family room is another large room with comfortable seating, including a high quality sofa bed to sleep an additional two guests if required (please notify us when booking) and gas stove fire.

Two staircases lead to separate bedroom areas. The main stairs rise from the dining room to a spacious landing with additional seating area for quiet relaxation. Off this landing are three of the bedrooms all with their own en suite shower rooms featuring rainfall showers. The second staircase leads to the master bedroom and the fifth bedroom which share the house bathroom.

To the rear of the property is an extensive terrace overlooking Kettlewell Beck. This area is perfect for dining outside, especially if using the barbecue, or simply enjoying some time relaxing in the Yorkshire Dales fresh air. There is plenty of seating and tables and good lighting for when the evening draws to a close.

This is a fantastic holiday home offering guests a high level of luxury (including oversized duvets to single and double beds) in a beautiful area. The owner provides a lovely welcome pack which will ensure that your holiday gets off to a great start. Within 100 yards is one of the three village pubs, with the other two, the village shop, garage, two cafes and an excellent children's playground all within 200 yards. With two main sitting rooms, two dining areas plus the terrace it makes an ideal place for families or groups of friends looking to holiday together. Grassington and the popular market towns of Skipton, Leyburn and Hawes are short drives away through spectacular countryside, but the best way to experience this is on foot. The Property is directly on the Dalesway and there are of course many walks right from its front door.

By far the largest county in the UK, Yorkshire is extremely popular for its countryside retreats as well as the bright lights of some busy cities like Harrogate, Sheffield and Leeds. Scarborough is the oldest seaside resort in Britain.

Whitby has been voted the country's best beach and has a beautiful harbour and a Dracula museum to boot (the town is featured in the Bram Stoker vampire story of the same name, as well as some of its many movie adaptations).

Yorkshire has always had a great and not always friendly rivalry with the neighbouring county of Lancashire. Some of the bloodiest battles in English history took place in these shires, as the opposing Plantagenet houses of York and Lancaster fought a bitter civil conflict commonly known as the Wars of the Roses. Nowadays the competition takes place mostly on the cricket pitch.

The two counties are among the most famous teams in this oh so important English summer game. Yorkshire has the nickname “God's own county”, a reference to the beauty of its countryside, with several National Parks formed to protect its moors and dales and rugged coastline. Cliffs of limestone, chalk and jet guard its coast against the sea. Because of its considerable size, Yorkshire is often regarded as three distinct administrative areas called “ridings” (North, West and East Riding), a Scandinavian concept thought to derive from the Viking occupation in the first century AD.
