The property

A very special property - this is a unique opportunity to enjoy a fully-restored, 17th century barn, set in its own grounds in the heart of the Broughton Hall Estate, just 2.5 miles from the market town of Skipton.

Set within breathtaking Dales countryside, this luxury property boasts country living at its very finest, providing a first-class holiday home in a remarkable location.

The setting amongst 3000 acres of beautiful estate land is truly inspiring, and wherever you are in this Skipton cottage there are views of sheep grazing, lovely natural woodland and rolling countryside.

With retro styling in most rooms, your Skipton cottage offers a large farmhouse style kitchen with a central island, a Belfast sink and dining area, a dining room and a spacious sitting room with a woodburner and French doors.

The bedrooms at this Skipton holiday home boast exposed beams and round picture windows, plus the bathrooms are of real quality, and the library is the perfect place to relax.

The lawned garden offers a hot tub and a fantastic fire pit, which is ideal for everyone to sit around and mull over the various events of the day.

A superb Skipton property for large families or groups of friends who wish to get away from it all, enjoy excellent walks and food at the local pub, or have lunch in the estate restaurant, Utopia, after exploring the Walled Garden.

Skipton offers independent shops and welcoming pubs, an ancient castle, which is well worth a visit and a golf course, or take a steam train ride on the Embsay Steam Railway.

Enjoy the best of the Dales, including moorland walks at Bolton Abbey, Burnsall and Malham, whilst the mouth watering farmers' market at Grassington, the Bronte Country of Haworth and elegant Harrogate are all within easy reach.

This is a rare chance for an unforgettable holiday in a wonderfully impressive property, set in a lovely location in the beautiful grounds of one of England's finest country homes.

About the location


Grassington 9 miles; Harrogate 20 miles.

Known as “The Gateway to the Dales”, Skipton is well placed for visiting all that the Dales has to offer, whilst York, the Lake District and the West Coast are also within easy motoring distance. This lovely market town has much to interest the enthusiastic visitor, boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. In 2008 the Academy of Urbanism voted the High Street the best shopping spot in Britain, and The Copper Dragon/Greyhawk Brewery is highly rated in the CAMRA listings. Steam railways with regular excursions are available at Embsay and Bolton Abbey, and the Leeds to Liverpool Canal passes through Skipton with the 1 mile long Foulridge Tunnel and the 5-rise locks at Bingley within a short travel. Golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker are all available locally and the excellent public transport means the car can be left at home!
