Delightful, quirky estate cottage in an enviable idyllic rural setting with stunning views on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Use of 30ft indoor swimming pool with superb countryside vista and truly magical outside dining space. This is a really special Yorkshire getaway. The bustling market town of Masham is a 10 minute drive away and there are a plethora of sights and activities on offer in the locality.

The space
The Gardener's House stands next to the manor house, a few steps away from the pool building. There is a good sized living space with well-equipped kitchen, plus a three seater sofa and additional armchair, and dining table that seats four people.
There is a double bedroom with en suite, plus another bedroom accessible via a ladder in the bedroom that has 2 single beds in it. Head height is restricted and for privacy reasons we would advise that THIS SPACE IS ONLY SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.

Where you’ll be

Healey, England, United Kingdom

There are so many great things to do around here it's difficult to know where to begin. But for starters the following are all within a short drive (30 minutes or less):
Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Gardens
Newby Hall
Jervaulx Abbey
Bolton Castle
Middleham Castle
Hackfall Woods
The Druid's Temple at Ilton
Thorp Perrow Arboretum
Brymor Ice Cream Parlour and Playbarn
Ripon Racecourse
The Forbidden Corner
The Himalayan Gardens at Grewelthorpe
We are also within easy driving distance of the market towns of Leyburn, Bedale and Ripon, and for access into the Dales.

If you want to pamper yourself, the Swinton Estate is just around the corner. They do excellent fine dining, have a fabulous new spa and a pony trekking centre.

If you want good food, there is the Michelin starred York Arms at Ramsgill about 20 minutes away, and highly regarded gastro pubs the Sportsmans Arms and the Blue Lion at East Witton.

If you would like any further advice or opinion on things to do or places to go, please just ask.

I am an award-winning children's author and mother to 4 children, aged 7 to 13. We live in the Yorkshire Dales most of the time, which is where the Gardener's House is, but we love getting away to the coast and it remains the focal point for much of my writing inspiration. We love the North Yorkshire coastline and spend as much time there as we can. We've recently expanded our properties to include a property in Whitby - The Old Jet Works, which is also to let. It's nice and spacious, very central, and of course has the all-important nosy seat in the window :)
