  • “Flanders Hall is a nice house for ...”
    Flanders Hall is a nice house for large groups. The rooms are all enormous and quite warm, even in winter. All three lounges have working fireplaces and the owners supply plenty of wood and kindling in one of the out buildings (plus an honesty box). The kitchen's pretty well stocked with equipment, although could do with a shelf for guests to leave non-perishable things like seasonings and spare tea bags, had to go buy a load of stuff of which we only used a small amount of so would have been ...
    Flanders Hall is a nice house for large groups. The rooms are all enormous and quite warm, even in winter. All three lounges have working fireplaces and the owners supply plenty of wood and kindling in one of the out buildings (plus an honesty box). The kitchen's pretty well stocked with equipment, although could do with a shelf for guests to leave non-perishable things like seasonings and spare tea bags, had to go buy a load of stuff of which we only used a small amount of so would have been helpful to leave for the next guests. Could also do with a few more frying pans, there were only 7 of us and i think we would have struggled to cook our meals if we had been any more. There's an Aga and a small conventional oven plus microwave. The internet is surprisingly good, we measured around 60mbps, although the WiFi struggles to get to the far corners of the house. The gardens look like they'd be really nice in summer, but since it was raining most of the time we didn't spend a lot of time outside. The river runs along the side of the house, which is a nice backdrop sound and there's two impressive waterfalls within a short walk from the house. There's a piano and guitar floating around, and quite a selection of music to go with them. We had no children with us but one of the three lounges is well stocked with toys. The interior of some rooms is a looking a little tired, there's a few water stains on the ceilings and so on, but nothing that's a problem. There's only one shower and one bath (in separate rooms), which might be a bit of a bottleneck if you had the full complement of 12 guests trying to get ready in the mornings. Could do with a welcome pack like most other rental homes provide, there was no indication of what to do with recyling/rubbish etc, also no guestbook to sign. Also would be useful to have a couple of keys rather than just the one, with larger groups it's often the case that you want to split into two smaller parties for the day and having only one key is a faff. Overall had a great time, definitely worth the visit.

About the location

WEST BURTON

Leyburn 7 miles; Hawes 10 miles.

Nestling in a hollow of the little-known Walden Valley, West Burton is a jewel not to be overlooked. This pretty and ancient village in the heart of Wensleydale is situated in truly beautiful countryside, with old stone cottages surrounding the famous broad village green. A walker’s paradise, with wonderful Dales countryside, magnificent views and the small, but spectacular Cauldron Falls still delighting visitors since the days when the great artist, J M W Turner, captured its magic. A traditional village pub overlooks the green along with a well-stocked village shop with a cafe and a butcher’s, while there is an excellent range of amenities in the nearby market towns of Hawes and Leyburn. A mile from the famous and impressive Aysgarth Falls. A delightful Dales base.
