Property code: 58685

This charming semi-detached cottage set in a peaceful village location with contemporary interiors is the perfect destination to explore the surrounding countryside, museums and places of historical interest.

Nestled in the peaceful village of Brompton-on-Swale, this charming stone cottage offers spacious accommodation for larger groups of friends or family and their holidaying hounds. Located close to the River Swale, it’s in a great location for walkers, cyclists and stick-chasers who love the great outdoors. With three bedrooms on the ground and first floor, this stylish home is ideal for those special occasions and holidays with all the family.

Leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind as you enter this semi-detached property, which combines traditional touches with a contemporary interior. After a busy day of exploring, the comfortable sofas in the lounge provide a welcome spot to put your feet and paws up in front of a family film. If you’re eating at home, whip up something delicious in the kitchen before gathering everyone around the dining table to discuss the day’s events. Upstairs you’ll find a second lounge/games room with an oak balcony which enjoys spectacular views, providing a wonderful spot to enjoy afternoon tea while your four-legged pal finds a sunny spot for a snooze. The three inviting bedrooms offer a relaxing place to rest after a busy day; two are located on the ground floor, making life easier for less mobile guests. Outside, enjoy a dip in your private hot tub while your furry pal explores the enclosed patio garden, before enjoying a little al fresco dining.

The beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park (14.5 miles) is the perfect place to let your hound take the lead on the walking front, with endless trails to follow. Take a wander around the historic market town of Richmond (3 miles) and explore the castle there, which welcomes dogs on a lead. Kiplin Hall and Gardens (4.5 miles) also makes for a lovely family day out.

The cottage itself was beautiful and in such a great location. Plenty of crockery which was great for meal times. There wasn't a mop so we couldn't clean the floors when needed. We did have multiple issues with the hot tub which we asked the owners who lived next door to help us with but this didn't resolve meaning we couldn't use it as much as we Read morewanted to. Other than that the bedrooms and house itself is well laid out and comfy. Hide

Location was excellent, for exploring parts of North Yorkshire and the Dales. Unfortunately, for us, as a group of 3 couples, the place was a little too small. One good bedroom/en suite but the other bedrooms were not ideal and had a few issues. Kitchen was ample however.
