Yorkshire Dales at its best. The Healthy Home sleeps 12 and is a beautiful haven for family gatherings, birthdays, walkers, & business & Yoga Retreats. Offering breathtaking views, with cosy spaces, private sheltered terraces. Minutes from Skipton. Perfect house party venue.
The house is a product of loving design and attention to detail, curving surfaces and all natural materials including wood, marble and natural eco paints. The sensitive renovation & building work inspired a best-selling book called The Healthy Home. People visiting from the city often find they sleep unexpectedly deeply, feeling rested and rejuvenated. The 750 year old original cottage was extended in 1997 by conversion of the barn and then in 2004 the stunning extension was added with its 2-storey high 2m wide windows, offering a twenty mile view over the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. The county is a favourite for film locations and close to here was the setting for Calendar Girls (debuted in our local cinema!) and Wuthering Heights.
The garden is a nature haven with a small field and woodland behind and a protected hillside wild garden in front. Organically cultivated for the forty five years we have owned it, the garden is quite a nature sanctuary…. we've counted 30 species of birds from wrens and collard doves to lapwings, curlews, barn owls and sparrow hawks.
Zugang für Gäste
Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen where you can cook and socialise … we've managed to cook for 20+ in there many times. There's space to eat in the kitchen near the log fire and also a separate family dining room that seats 12. A huge lounge (used for retreats) has the best panoramic views and there is plenty of space to be social or have quiet time. Each bedroom has its own character and 12 people can be accommodated in 4 double beds, 2 twin rooms. There are 2 bathrooms, 2 shower rooms and an extra WC in the laundry.

The house owners travel a great deal but we are always available if needed by email and phone. Our housekeepers prepare everything for your arrival and are in the local village so can respond if the unexpected happens.

The house is reached via a lime stone chipping track and cattle grid. If there are cows in the farmer's field of the access road, then you will need to open and close one gate. There is parking space for 6 cars.
The Healthy Home has been developed as a place for well being.
Please bring slippers for indoors. No shoes in the house. We maintain the house as a low allergy environment so sorry, no dogs.
No smoking indoors, thank you.
