As you pass the magnificent stately home of Broughton Hall and climb up the single track road through the estate, the house soon comes into view and will take your breath away. This magnificent detached house commands a secluded position, surrounded by the 3000-acre grounds of the Broughton Hall Estate... and a few sheep!
A popular venue for a wedding and perfect for a group of friends or a family gathering, it offers plenty of space and comfort for everyone. The huge, high ceilinged living room provides a stunning space for everyone to get together in one room. The kitchen is flooded with light thanks to the cathedral-style window and French doors.
With a large central island and breakfast area it will be the hub of the house for a natter over a cup of coffee each morning. The traditionally furnished dining room provides contrasting décor to the stylish and contemporary furnishings throughout the rest of the house, but gives ample opportunity for all guests to dine together. A simple relaxation/reading area at the bottom of two staircases provides a quiet retreat.
One staircase leads to just two of the bedrooms and a bathroom which gives privacy to those who want to slip away early or to a small family. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor as well as level access throughout the house.
Outside, a sunken wood-fired hot tub for 6 guests provides further relaxation opportunities and the vast expanse of flat lawned garden is ideal for ball games. If you’re planning a party, it’s the prime spot for a marquee to extend the celebrations! Hidden within the two-storey garage is a bar and children’s room, ideal for all guests. The owner has thoughtfully provided a complementary welcome pack including wine, milk and a selection of delicious homemade cakes.
Wander through the huge grounds, meander along the river and explore to your heart’s content. You may even stumble across the cycle track in the woods so don’t forget to bring your bikes with you! For a little more adventure, why not book a Land Rover Experience at the course on site (by direct arrangement with the owner).
Just a few hundred yards away is the A59, but it feels like a million miles away. Just 3½ miles away is the busy town of Skipton with its long, cobbled high street, an eclectic mix of independent and high street shops and an abundance of cafés and tea rooms await. Stroll along the canal, through the woods or discover Norman history at Skipton Castle.
Within 10 miles drive is Malham with its breathtaking 260ft high limestone cove. If you’re feeling fit, climb the steps to the top where you’ll be rewarded with magnificent views down the dale and be able to see one of the finest examples of limestone pavement in the country, which was also used in a scene from one of the Harry Potter films! Alternative easy walks include Gordale Scar, also a film location for Harry Potter.
For a relaxing day out venture further into the Yorkshire Dales to the picturesque villages of Grassington, 12 miles, and Kettlewell, 5 miles further, calling at Kilnsey Trout Farm on the way and a stop off to watch the climbers hang off Kilnsey Crag. Many walks and cycle routes for all abilities can be found here and all around the area.
Country pubs serving local produce are within easy reach should you wish to dine out during your stay, with the closest just 500 yards away and easily reached via a stroll through the estate grounds. This amazing home provides a tranquil retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life but will come alive when filled with your family and friends, yet is within very easy reach of the main town of Skipton and surrounding attractions – what more could you want? Shops 3½ miles, pub/restaurant 500 yards.
