Situated in an idyllic rural position is Skellgill House in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This wonderful Dales farmhouse has to be ’ Escape to the Country’ at its best, it even has the meandering Skellgill Beck trickling through the gardens, whilst the sheep graze the fells beyond. What better place could there be to watch the world go by? Although perfectly rural, Skellgill does not feel remote as there is a small traditional dales farm close by. The house itself is extremely spacious and welcoming, keeping that warm, traditional and inviting feeling that you would hope a dales farmhouse would offer. The traditionally presented lounge offers a cosy open fire where you can relax those tired muscles after enjoying a day on the hills, or, perhaps fine dining is your forte, where better to enjoy dinner than in the wonderful spacious dining room adorned with the most beautiful original stone fireplace, high beamed ceilings and yet more picture postcard views. The space and welcoming features continue throughout the house, traditional, unspoilt and homely. Outside, the traditional cottage gardens continue to offer space and tranquillity, with lawn areas, seating areas and the wonderful beck in such stunning surroundings. Where better to spend your Yorkshire Dales Holiday. Shop 1½ mile, pub ½ mile and restaurant 1 mile.

THE HOUSE IS VERY COMFORTABLE AND FULLY EQUIPPED..WALKS FROM THE DOOR AND LOVELY VIEWS. ALTHOUGH NOT TOO REMOTE IT IS STILL A SHORT DRIVE TO SHOPS/PUBS. THE NEAREST PUB/RESTAURANT IS OVER A MILE AWAY DOWN A STEEP HILL AND NOT HALF A MILE AS DESCRIBED. WE HAD A WONDERFUL WEEK AND SO DID OUR DOG JIM WHO LOVED THE BECK IN THE GARDEN. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED . ONLY NEGATIVE : A DROP OF MILK TO MAKE TEA WOULD HAVE BEEN WELCOME ON ARRIVAL WE WILL BE RETURNING AGAIN.
