The exclusive village of Ramsgill in Nidderdale was often referred to as Little Switzerland in years gone by. As you look out of the windows of Green Farm House it's not difficult to understand why. The grand traditional stone built house proudly forms part of the village history dating back to 1800 when the York family built much of the property in the Village. The house now forms part of the family owned Ramsgill Estate. In warmer months you can understand why the Estate was chosen as the film set for the Film "FairyTale - A True Story" starring Peter O'Toole. In winter, when it snows, you could easily believe you had stepped Into Narnia. It truly is a magical setting all year round.
The house is warm and spacious and has been beautifully renovated to an exceptional standard. It is decorated with an exquisite mix of stylish contemporary and elegant traditional touches. Each room is bespoke designed with some individual quirky elements so as to ensure your stay is memorable.
During select holiday periods the house will be tastefully decorated so as it really does feel special and like coming home to your haven in the countryside.
The house offers all the benefits of a modern home along with the charm of a country house. The crackle of the real open fire in the sitting room provides a perfect setting to relax and unwind. There are two tables to dine at. In the kitchen, or in the formal dining room. The latter being perfect for celebrations, romance, or, no reason required decadence. There is careful attention to detail throughout the house. Plush fluffy towels and sumptuous toiletries in the bathrooms, and cloud like beds clad in Egyptian cotton bed linen in the bedrooms. Also provided in your stay is, home made cake and a welcome hamper full of essentials and goodies.
Should you decide to venture out, just 200yds away is the The Yorke Arms, an historic 18th century coaching house which boasts a Michelin starred restaurant. If you want to venture further afield, Green Farm provides the perfect gateway to a wealth of sights, activities and heritage. CHECK-IN 3PM CHECK-OUT 10AM
