The house is a collection of three buildings that work well to offer many spaces to be together and have retreat and privacy. This is an ideal place for multi-generations or three families to holiday together with parents and children in each of the three buildings: The New Building, the Barn and the Cottage.
Relaxing: There are six reception rooms: a large lounge in the Barn with wide screen TV & DVD with cinema sound system; a 2nd huge lounge (used for retreats & presentations) has the best views; a second storey lounge area for panoramic views of the valley; a cosy library well-stocked with interesting material; a beautiful conservatory built out into the woodland with great views; and a smaller conservatory space in the Barn leading onto the top terrace. So many spaces to come together in community or slip away and have quiet retreat time.
Sleeping: There are six formal bedrooms which sleep 10-12 people (4 double beds, 2 twins). Three lounge spaces have sofa beds and the house has abundant space for 8 to 12 people to be accommodated in different configurations. Each bedroom has its own character & depending on how you use the sofa beds, a family party of 12-14 could be accommodated. There are 2 bathrooms, 2 shower rooms and a laundry with an extra WC in.
Meals: Enjoy the use of a fully equipped kitchen where you can cook and socialise … we’ve managed to cook for 30 people in there many times. There’s space to eat in the kitchen near the log fire and also in a separate family dining room. When the weather is good, enjoy the panoramic Dales view and eat outside on the terrace or on the lawn. 5-burner gas hob, electric oven, dedicated kitchen cupboard storage space for guest use … The Healthy Home does not have a microwave oven.
