With lockdown looking pretty imminent, it’s hard to remember what life was like before COVID (remember hugging people?), never mind trying to think about a ‘normal’ future. But, with the vaccine roll-out ongoing, it’s time we started making plans and living our lives again. And helping us with our local wanderlust, perched on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, is this beautifully stunning stay – Highleases Farm.
It has sweeping panoramic views of the countryside and is a self-catering property, that is the perfect getaway for you and your friends or family. So pack up the car, grab the beers and get living.
Fancy a few vinos by the fire? The huge communal living space with picturesque panoramic views of the Dales countryside is the perfect place to enjoy a couple of glasses (or more) with friends. You can get back to nature after almost a year of restricted travel with the comforts and luxuries you’d expect on holiday. The space is ultra-modern and has underfloor heating, with huge sofas you can lay back and chill on the whilst enjoying the warmth of the wood-burning fire.
The wrap-around terraces are a great place to enjoy a few drinks with friends whilst appreciating Yorkshire’s never-ending skyline. If the weather isn’t great, the communal space has great floor-to-ceiling windows that will help you appreciate the beautiful countryside.
The kitchen is sleek and spacious and perfect for large group dining. Open plan ground floor lends itself to the conversation, so while people are cooking, others can chill with a glass of wine.
A gorgeous spiral staircase with a beautiful bookcase leads you up to the bedrooms. The nine-bedroom house sleeps 30 people and has a range of bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The main house features a total of seven bedrooms and aside from the main house, there is a ground floor annexe with a bedroom that sleeps another four.
The bathrooms are just as luxurious, with walk-in showers and free-standing tubs. The view from each bedroom is of majestic uninterrupted Yorkshire landscape that will take your breath away.
Fancy getting competitive? They also have table tennis for the lads to have it out (it’ll all end in tears we are sure). The stay is highly luxurious, and its subtle architecture fits well with uncompromising grace of the Dales. On its doorstep is the town of Richmond that is steeped in history, with a great variety of shopping opportunities and dining experiences. There are also great opportunities for walks in the countryside nearby.
It costs between £1000-1750 per night, depending on what time in the week and year that you stay here. If you’d like to find out any more information, click here.
