The property

This superb, wonderfully-styled country house, with a date stone reading 1657, is situated overlooking Kettlewell Beck in the village of Kettlewell, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

This outstanding Dales cottage was the blacksmiths to the Racehorses Coaching Inn, and the nearby Bluebell Inn was used as its stables.

Now, this impressive, stone-built property is split into a main house and an annexe, combining to provide seven delightful bedrooms, two dining kitchens, a separate dining room, three bathrooms and three reception rooms.

There is also a useful utility room where you can store walking boots and equipment, plus enclosed gardens are situated to the front and back.

With no expense spared during the property’s renovation, Fern House has been thoughtfully converted to provide superb facilities, modern styling and elegant furnishings, while retaining the immense character and charm of the original dwelling.

The main part of the house features a spacious sitting room with a woodburning stove and patio doors to the enclosed rear garden, while the kitchen has a lovely warming AGA, a small dining area and a TV.

There is a separate dining room, with the addition of a pull-out table, and five well-laid out bedrooms, the master of which houses a king-size bed and modern en-suite.

The annexe is attached to the main house, and can be accessed through a lockable door via the master bedroom, or its own entrance.

It is ideal for members of the group who like a little privacy from time to time, and enjoys a lovely, cosy sitting room with a woodburning stove of its own, plus a modern kitchen diner, two lovely bedrooms and a bathroom.

In a most enviable location, with wonderful views of the surrounding fells, the property overlooks the village hall in Kettlewell, where the opening scenes from the much-loved film Calendar Girls were filmed.

The village holds a charm all its own, full of beautiful, old stone buildings and Kettlewell Beck meandering through the centre, on its way to join the River Wharfe.

Fern House is in a fabulous location for a group of friends or family to get together, home to three of the finest, award-winning pubs in the Yorkshire Dales.

With outstanding views and walks in every direction, this is one not to be missed!

About the location


Grassington 7 miles; Skipton 14 miles.

Nestling at the foot of Great Whernside, near the head of Upper Wharfedale, this idyllic village makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale. Much of Upper Wharfedale is National Trust owned - an indication of the beauty of its classic countryside, with dry-stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valley side woodland. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking and mountain biking areas in the Dales, with The Dales Way passing nearby. The village itself lying on the banks of the River Wharfe is a real delight with traditional built stone cottages, three pubs, a Post Office, speciality shops and a hotel. No surprise that the hit movie Calendar Girls was filmed here and in other locations throughout the area. An excellent base for enjoying the famous Dales, historic market towns, caves and waterfalls of this magical area.
