This lovely stone bungalow is located close to the owners’ working farm in the heart of North Yorkshire, beautifully furnished and enjoying uninterrupted views over farmland and hills beyond.

Your family retreat in the peaceful hamlet of Rookwith, this traditional stone bungalow and surrounding working farm offer you and your pup a stylish base from which to roam the rolling countryside and rugged moors of the Yorkshire Dales.

The house is a bright and spacious single-storey bungalow, with two entrances for extra accessibility. The central space is a sociable kitchen and dining room, with an adjoining utility room. A warm and inviting sitting room with a wood burner leads into your light-filled conservatory, where you can look out over the fells with your morning coffee and a book. Along the hall, two bedrooms — one king-size and a twin, which can be zip-and-linked into a king on request. There is also a Jack and Jill wet room-style bathroom. And outside, a large grassy area is all yours to enjoy. In addition, a fire pit with surrounding log stools provides the perfect spot for star gazing and a paddock at the rear of the property can be used for extra bounding room.

Private walks set off from your doorstep, including around the owners’ working farm and the hamlet of Rookwith. A 3-mile walk will bring you to Jervaulx, where you can enjoy the dramatic ruined arches of Jervaulx Abbey, explore the surrounding parkland then head through the gateway of the Yorkshire Dales, to miles of hill country, castles and wildlife to discover. Drop in to the Wensleydale Creamery, a 24-mile drive to the west through the dales, to pick up some famous cheese to take home, then explore the dale walks around the River Ure, including waterfalls like Hardraw Force, the country’s largest “single drop” fall, and beautiful villages tucked around the wooded valley.
