Hilltop House description

Holiday home
Hilltop House is a detached farmhouse with annexe near the village of Starbotton in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The annexe sleeps four people and has one double and one twin both with en-suite shower.

Outside is off road parking for six cars and gardens with hot tub, patio and furniture together with large paddock and 14 acres of grazing land. Situated in the heart of the National Park, Hilltop House is a lovely family home and a great base to tour this part of the country.

Area
Nestling in the Upper Wharfedale valley between Kettlewell and Buckden, this idyllic National Park village makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale. Much of Upper Wharfedale is National Trust owned - an indication of the beauty of its classic countryside, with dry-stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valley side woodland. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking areas in the Dales, with The Dales Way passing nearby, good access to Buckden Pike and gentle walks along the riverbanks. The village itself comprises a cluster of stone built cottages and houses with, at its centre, the wonderful 'Fox and Hounds' pub serving great ales and fine food.

Region
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?

This house is in one of the most beautiful places in the world and we were excited to spend Christmas there. Unfortunately the beauty of the location - and the actual house - were not matched by either the maintenance of the property or, more importantly, the level of hospitality offered by the owner. There were numerous problems, including a hot tub full of old smelly water from the previous guests, mouse droppings and mould in the bathroom and the Aga not working properly (we had to call out the engineer to repair it), broken light fittings, damp firewood... But the owner (hundreds of miles away in London) failed spectacularly to remedy any problems or even to apologise for them. In fact, when we complained at the end of our stay she accused us of having broken things but quickly had to retract as she had no grounds for the accusation. We've had family Christmas in other big houses for the best part of a decade and we've never had this kind of basic lack of hospitality and grace. A real shame that such a lovely house is being run in this way.

Stunning property in an idyllic location. The house is immaculately presented throughout and all the bedrooms are equally beautiful which is very important when you are in a large group as nobody wants to get the sub standard room!! The house is within easy walking distance to pubs and village shop and the scenery is breath taking.

What a lovely house! Would highly recommend. Stayed here as with 9 others. Bedrooms are spacious. Sitting room is very cozy. Dining room and kitchen are fab and not to mention the hot tub outside amongst the beautiful view. The house was very clean and tidy. House is well equipped and some things are very thoughtful. Thank you for a great stay. Would definitely stay here again.
