York House is a beautiful, detached stone-built property, in the picturesque Swaledale village of Hudswell. Built by the owner to a good standard, with many contemporary fixtures and fittings. The living room boasts a wood burner, and there’s also a large, well-equipped kitchen/dining room, a cosy snug, plus six comfortable bedrooms, some with en-suite facilities. Boasting stunning views over the Swale Valley and a delightful lawned garden, this characterful cottage shouldn’t go missed.
A superb base for exploring Swaledale, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors, making York House an ideal location for touring this wonderful area. Hudswell is a small ribbon village sitting on top of the valley above the River Swale, located just two miles from its better-known neighbour of Richmond. Set in delightful rolling countryside, the village boasts a mixture of lovely old houses and an interesting local pub. Like many village pubs, it recently fell on difficult times, so the villagers clubbed together and now run it as a ’Community Pub Initiative’.
Discover the ancient market town of Richmond, which stands to the north of the River Swale. Its cobbled streets, narrow alleys and architecture embody nine centuries of history and unique character. The town grew up around its castle, and today there are wonderful walks to be enjoyed by the castle or alongside the River Swale.
York House is ideal for those seeking a comfortable and relaxing holiday and offers a perfect base for exploring all of North Yorkshire including the Heritage Coastline and the medieval city of York. There are historic sites to visit at Rievaulx and Fountains Abbey, stately homes at Nunnington Hall, Castle Howard, and numerous quaint villages with traditional inns serving good food and local ales. Family fun can be found at Flamingo Land, Lightwater Valley Theme Park and Go Ape in the Dalby Forest. You can find miles of sandy beaches at the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.
