Brystone, West Stonesdale


Brystone is a distinctly luxurious yet contemporary 300 year old Yorkshire Dales farmhouse in a divine location in the tiny hamlet of West Stonesdale. If you love to stay in an old farmhouse with a fabulous stone fireplace, beamed ceilings, as many bathrooms as bedrooms, and surrounded by its own gardens with unforgettable views on all sides then this is the cottage for you.

West Stonesdale is between Keld in Swaledale and the world famous Tan Hill Inn, Britain’s highest pub. This is also true walking country on both the Pennine Way, which was Britain’s first long distance footpath, and Alfred Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk along with many other shorter walks. The River Swale nearby has a series of waterfalls, locally called forces, and many people will recognise Wain Wath Force, Kisdon Force, East Gill Force and Catrake Force, all only a short walk or drive away.

This is a beautiful renovation of an old property brought back into use as a house again. The family have done much of the work themselves with the help of many local craftsmen and this shows in the attention to detail using the original features of the house whilst bringing it into the modern world with all of the facilities that we expect nowadays. Brystone is a house to enjoy and remember. To see a picture of Brystone prior to its renovation click here.

Accommodation

Brystone is a traditional 300 year old Yorkshire Dales stone farmhouse which sits within its own walled grounds with gardens on all sides and ample parking for several cars.

You have a choice of 3 doors to enter the house-one into the living room, one into the large utility/play room and one from one of the terraced patios at the rear of the house. The main front door takes you into the beautiful lounge with its old stone fireplace, wood burning stove and ample leather sofas and chairs. From this room you enter the lobby with a hand built oak staircase which is at the heart of the house. The oak farmhouse kitchen is well equipped, has granite worktops and is open to the dining area so is a great space for meals with family and friends. Two steps down from the kitchen into what at one time was an attached little barn is the very spacious utility and playroom-great for storage or as a room that the kids can take over during your stay. There is also a good sized shower room on this floor.

Upstairs there is a stunning master bedroom with a superking oak bed, extra deep mattress and flatscreen TV. This bedroom has memorable views from both of the windows which you can enjoy from the comfort of the fantastic bed. Next to this bedroom is a good sized bathroom. There is also a king sized room, again with views across Stonesdale and a twin bedroom with ensuite shower room, this bedroom can also be converted into a superking room. The furniture throughout the cottage is mainly oak to match the handmade staircase, doors and woodwork of this lovely house.

The owners of Brystone are local farmers whose farm is just up the road and who have farmed at Stonesdale for generations. One of them is a local artist and there are a number of her local paintings in the farmhouse as well as old family photographs taken outside Brystone.

The house sits within its own gardens which are built into the slope of the hill behind. This means that there is a patio at the front of the house and also at the back of the house, with lawned gardens and rockeries on different levels, there is also heated summer house so that you can enjoy the views and the sun throughout the day or whatever the weather. The gardens are either walled or gated and there is also a small garage for a small car or ample secure bike and other storage. There is parking for at least 4 cars. Garden furniture is provided as well as a chimenea. This is a great house for picnics outside in the garden.
