Plot your escape to this exquisite holiday home, where old meets new in the breathtaking Yorkshire countryside.
Aquarius Rising is an exclusive large luxury holiday home that will not disappoint. You are struck by the towering majesty of the building on arrival, and once you enter the property, it does not stop. Relax in the hot tub or sauna, play on the pool table in the large entertainment room, and enjoy the large gardens. This space was made to be enjoyed by a large group, so bring everyone here for your next celebration! The large dining table is perfect for mealtimes as it includes everyone easily, and every bedroom has the wow-factor, so there is no need to rush to getting the ‘best’ room.
Aquarius Rising has been lovingly renovated by renowned modern art?collector, Greville?Worthington. The result is a seamless combination of contemporary stylish interiors alongside the charm of the?original?building. The walls are adorned with work by artists that have shaped modern art, the grounds are glorious, and there are many things to do in the area...
Step inside and the soaring ceilings and magnificent windows allow light to flood through, creating an airy and welcoming space. Through the generous entrance hall, is the impressive open-plan kitchen diner, the hub of this large holiday house. The kitchen centres around the bespoke 12-seater table built by the owner with seats reclaimed from an old London bus! A kitchen island with hardy marble countertops houses a large range cooker and is perfect for preparing an indulgent spread.
As you settle down to a meal, perhaps having spoilt yourselves with a visit from one of our partner private chefs, enjoy the blazing wood burner at the end of the room. Afterwards, nothing beats lounging on the corner sofa after a big meal and taking in the views of the fields beyond.
Next to the kitchen, a small quirky ‘cocktail room’ with a handmade wooden bar has the feel of an exclusive members club. Prep your favourite cocktail, then head to the?grand old school room beyond. This is the ultimate entertaining space, whether seated around the large dining table for 12, playing pool or dancing away under the shimmering disco ball. The walls are adorned with artwork and photography, and there are plenty of?comfortable sofas and armchairs to relax on as evening fades into night.
For a quieter spot, the cosy sitting room across the hall is a welcoming space. Light the open fire then sink into the plush L-shaped velvet sofa. Catch up on your favourite films on the 65-inch TV with Sony sound bar for maximum entertainment.
Originally a chapel house, this luxury holiday home adjoins St Paulinus, a private chapel whose ornate glass windows tower over the courtyard.
Up the carpeted stairs are three spacious first-floor double bedrooms, with walnut floors and high ceilings. The master bedroom boasts an original fireplace, and an en-suite bathroom almost as big as the bedroom itself! Take a long relaxing soak in the free-standing tub, perfectly placed for daydreaming in front of the enchanting window. You will also find a rainfall shower, twin basins, marble counters, and plenty of storage.
The second bedroom overlooks the courtyard and can be set as a super king or as a twin room. An original Damien Hirst adorns the wall, an incredible addition to this unique home that once hosted a Hirst exhibition in the 1990s. The third large bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and more stunning views of the grounds.
Climb the spiral staircase to the second floor of this large luxury holiday home, and find three uniquely decorated bedrooms. They share a large shower room with a double sink and vanity unit on this floor, and the shower room on the first floor.
Each bedroom has zip and link bed, allowing guests to choose to set the rooms up as a super king or as a twin room.
Set in 270 acres of private land close to the Yorkshire Dales, Aquarius Rising will not disappoint! Dig out your wellies, grab the dog’s lead and choose from a wide range of walks and routes across the beautiful parkland.
Outside of the kitchen, the enclosed decking is a tranquil place to unwind. Soak in the private bubbling hot tub, relax in the Swedish sauna, or sit and soak up the sun on the hand-carved wooden bench. An outdoor shower and changing room are handily placed for your convenience.
On the south side of the house are private gardens with pretty views over Brough Park beyond. The large lawn is perfect for picnics with the gang, and also helps make this a super dog friendly holiday home.
The kitchen includes a side prep kitchen, and across both are a large American fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher. Adjacent is a cloakroom, laundry room with a washer-dryer, and there is plenty of storage for coats and welly boots. Parking is plentiful outside the house.
Linen, towels, bathrobes, miniature toiletries, and a locally sourced welcome hamper are included in this large luxury holiday home. Families with babies can request a cot and a high chair free of charge.
Up to two dogs are welcome at Aquarius Rising at a small additional cost per night. They are sure to enjoy the many walks across the estate and beyond.

Set in 270 acres of private land on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, Aquarius Rising offers a unique countryside break within a short drive of plenty of local amenities. Within a half-mile are a Nisa petrol station, a Co-op store and Boots chemist. In nearby Catterick are supermarkets, various shops, and facilities including a cinema and leisure centre.
It is a short drive from the market town of Richmond. With its 11th-century castle, fine historic buildings and cobbled marketplace, Richmond is a treasure trove for visitors. In town we recommend Rustique, a popular French restaurant, and Number 29 for gin and tapas or La Piazza for Italian. The local area has a huge choice of options for eating and drinking, whether you're looking for laid-back food or fine dining.
Large groups love Waterloo Lodge, which is a fantastic place for a multi-generational celebration with family and friends in beautiful North Yorkshire. Within easy reach...
