Description

Micklethorn commands a prime position overlooking the Yorkshire Dales countryside. Descend the steps at the rear of this detached house and enter into the delightful farmhouse kitchen and dining area where everyone can enjoy a meal together and plan the next day’s activities. This imposing period house has been stylishly furnished with great attention to detail with your every comfort catered for. Relaxation is the order of the day with two living areas and even a library/study where you can put your feet up and delve into that book you’ve not had time to pick up lately or write your postcards to send home. Head up one of two separate staircases to the first floor where six bedrooms await after a busy day exploring. The single bedroom is a perfect hideaway that your child will love. There’s also a ’kid’s cave’ in the basement where children can hang out and spend hours getting creative with the arts and crafts supplies provided.

To the front of the house is a large expanse of lawned garden which stretches all the way down to the road. Less than half a mile away, and just across the A59, is the main estate of Broughton Hall. Guests are free to wander the vast 3000-acre grounds and discover wildlife including peacocks, roaming sheep and bridges across the river. For a more exhilarating experience, the Broughton Hall Estate is home to Land Rover Experience North, so why not try your hand on the off road course (by direct arrangement with the owner)?

If you can tear yourself away long enough to explore the surrounding area, there are many attractions within very easy reach, not to mention endless opportunities to hike into the hills and fells and admire the beauty of the fittingly named ‘God’s Own Country’!

Micklethorn is set back from the A59, giving easy access to a main road for exploring this spectacular area of the country. Just 4 miles away is the bustling market town of Skipton, with its cobbled high street and thrice weekly market days. The Norman castle will delight young and old alike and a stroll through Skipton woods at any time of year is a true way to bring your family together. If the weather is inclement then there’s a leisure centre, bowling alley, independent cinema and many cosy bars and restaurants suiting all tastes and budgets. Bolton Abbey, Grassington and even Ilkley can all be reached within 30 minutes’ drive.

If you head along the A59 in the opposite direction you’ll soon be in Lancashire, often overlooked in favour of its neighbour Yorkshire, but boasting some beautiful spots within the Ribble Valley and Forest of Bowland, all accessible within 30 minutes’ drive. Shops and restaurants 4 miles, pubs serving food 1 mile.

About the local area

Skipton is a bustling market town situated in a unique location, the Aire Gap, which enables visitors to explore some of northern England's outstanding beauty spots. The Yorkshire Dales lie to the north and give Skipton its name of 'The Gateway to the Dales'. The rolling green pastures of the Ribble Valley lie to the west and lead to the Lake District.

Millstone grit moorland stretches to the south and east of Skipton, leading to Bronte Country and good road, rail and air links from the cities of Bradford and Leeds. There's an open air market four days a week, traditional shops and a vibrant, modern commercial centre.

There's a rich history in Skipton. The 900-year old castle has dominated the town since the Norman Conquest. Although part of Yorkshire, Skipton supported the Lancastrians during the War of the Roses. and during the Civil War, was the only Royalist stronghold in northern England.

This is one of the most scenic stretches of the Leeds - Liverpool Canal, which passes through the town centre and around Skipton Castle like a moat. You can take a half hour trip around the castle or day trips to outlying areas.

The canal takes you to Gargrave village, close to the source of the River Aire and the spectacular limestone gorges at Malham. Here you can enjoy dozens of walks around the remote moorland, stunning glical formations such as Malham Tarn and even spot the Peregrine Falcons nesting high on the cliffs.

The village of Embsay, just outside Skipton, hosts a terminal of the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway. The train stops just outside Bolton Abbey, a lovely place for picnic.
