Fern House description

Holiday home
Fern House is a wonderful country retreat for families and groups of friends; a beautiful, detached country house in the village of Kettlewell, across the road from a pretty beck. The property was once the blacksmiths to the coaching in and stables up the road, and now offers fabulous accommodation split over the main house and an annexe. The main house has seven bedrooms, three with TVs and king-size beds, one with an en-suite and one with the zip/link option of becoming a twin. There is also a family bathroom and ground floor WC, a kitchen with a dining area for four, a dining room seating eight and a sitting room with a woodburning stove. In the annexe, there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin, a bathroom, a kitchen with a dining area for four, and a sitting room with a woodburner of its own. The two parts of the house share an enclosed lawned garden and patio with furniture, plus two off road parking spaces, though there is also roadside parking available outside the house. In a great base for walking, with the stunning Dales stretching on either direction of the village, Fern House is perfect for a Yorkshire getaway.

Nestling at the foot of Great Whernside, near the head of Upper Wharfedale, the idyllic village of Kettlewell makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Great location, fantastic house for our requirements, and the good weather helped as well! The weekend was for my Mum's 60th birthday so having all the family together under one roof to celebrate was perfect. Will definitely be going back in the future.
