About the home
Located in peaceful parkland between Swaledale and Teesdale, our private Yorkshire Dales country cottage offers the perfect setting for exploring 3 stunning National Parks - the Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire Moors and the Lake District. Add to this the lovely seaside town of Whitby and the scenically beautiful Yorkshire Heritage Coast and you have an abundant choice of outdoor activities including mountain biking, golf, hiking, climbing, caving, cycling, horse riding, paragliding and water sports. Superb historical monuments and attractions are also nearby, including iron age camps, castles, abbeys, Dales villages and the bustling market town of Richmond – voted England’s favourite market town - with its full range of shops, cinema, theatre and craft workshops. York, Newcastle, Gateshead, Harrogate and Leeds are within easy reach, offer great shopping and are packed with museums, world-class concert halls and art galleries. People travel miles to sample local Yorkshire produce and real ales at the many high quality restaurants and country inns within a few miles of our cottage.

As you drive through the high electric gates and sweep into the spacious driveway you know the stunning architecture of the Coach House will make your stay a special one, whether you are entertaining in the cosy dining room, cooking on the Aga with friends in the roomy kitchen, sitting by the fire in the spacious lounge or simply relaxing with a good read in the light and airy conservatory or mezzanine.
