Lovely holiday home

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent stay in this lovely property. The house is well equipped with a cosy farmhouse kitchen.

There are some good walks right from the door and we will definitely be tempted back to sample more.

Mike answered our queries very promptly.

Beautiful view of the Yorkshire Dales

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse. The kitchen was beautiful and the cookies were delicious. The house was very clean with wonderful views of the Yorkshire Dales. The parking was a little difficult if you are traveling in an SUV or Van as there is an adjacent cottage that shares the same driveway. We needed to arrange with our neighbors the parking logistics since our van took up most of the driveway. Although you can park on the street, the road is very narrow and makes it difficult for other cars to pass. The nearest town for shopping is about 4 miles away. There are two lovely pubs within walking distance.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive appreciation of what the 'Farmhouse' offers to enable you to enjoy a pleasant and comfortable holiday experience - Parking is advertised as being 'Shared' and rubbing along with adjacent Holiday Rental neighbours in the 'Barn' (if in occupation) can form part of an enjoyable holiday experience of meeting new friends .. Why not give it a whirl?

Charming spacious and very well appointed farm house with beautiful views .

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Prospect Farm House. The house is very spacious and extremely clean. It's easy to spend a whole day in the house with its beautiful views and pretty garden. The Fox&Hounds pub across the road is great and the Heffer resteraunt superb. We walked from the house to Castle Bolton across the stepping stones over the Ure which was about 8 kilometers. The kids loved the Forbidden Corner which is ten minutes drive away. Thanks for letting us stay in this fantastic place.
