Set in a superb countryside location off a quiet, single-track country lane, and a short picturesque walk from the historic market town of Richmond, this spectacular holiday property is perfect for a special occasion. It provides a quiet, rural base, yet has easy access to the fabulous Yorkshire Dales, the cathedral city of Durham, the beautiful coastline of Northumberland, Barnard Castle and the medieval city of York or Harrogate. High Leases Farm is an exceptional detached property, offering guests a high level of space and comfort and ideal for a group of friends, family reunions and all manner of celebrations.
This is an extremely spacious, open plan property, showcasing amazing style with its light-filled rooms and stylish furnishings and fittings. The large, open plan living area has floor-to-ceiling windows framing spectacular views and a modern design wood burner as the focal point. A sleek kitchen area, with granite worktops and a large island, is superbly fitted, whilst the spacious dining area is a very special place for entertaining. Leading off the living area is a games/television room, as well as a music room with a baby grand piano, a collection of artwork, exposed brickwork, a contemporary gas log-effect fire and large windows overlooking a central courtyard.
A beautiful, sweeping, spiral staircase commands the impressive hallway, with a floor-to-ceiling library covering the interior wall. Each bedroom is decorated with fresh colours, superior quality bedding and super comfortable beds. Perfect for those wanting a little extra privacy away from the main house, an annexe with a private entrance in the courtyard offers space for a further four guests. There is ample parking for guests, and spectacular views can be admired from the elevated terraces, garden and grounds extending to 4 acres of moorland. Dining al fresco is a pleasure here, with a purpose-built BBQ and sheltered dining area.
The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a special place with outstanding scenery, a range of wildlife habitats and a rich cultural heritage. It's the perfect location if you enjoy walking with an abundance of beautiful walks from the doorstep with the famous Coast to Coast path passing along the boundaries. Nearby Tour De France/Tour de Yorkshire cycling routes make this a popular stay for cyclists and a storage area is provided for your convenience. Within walking distance, explore the cobbled streets or Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. Visit the former Victorian station in Richmond, a stunning building and home to an art gallery, cafe, cinema and local artisan shop and well worth a visit. A lovely circular walk takes you from here along the river and back.
Taking a drive out, the property is just a few miles away from the pretty market town of Northallerton, where Georgian houses line the long main street. Here you will find the famous Betty's Tearooms, along with a fantastic local deli. If you're a bit of a foodie, there are several excellent dining venues in the area. High Leases Farm really is the perfect place to enjoy a special get together in luxury and an ideal base to get out and explore some of the most beautiful countryside the Yorkshire Dales has to offer. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
