“Our second time at Dexter. Outstanding 5-star facilities and very clean. Will keep coming back as we love it so much. Perfect for a luxury weekend away with friends!” - Rachael from London
The spacious farmhouse-style kitchen features a huge kitchen island with an informal breakfast bar and a comfy seating area. The modern kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need and more on a self-catering holiday. Next door to the kitchen is the house snug, with its large leather sofa, widescreen TV and log burning stove. The doors take you straight outdoors to the gorgeous gardens. There is a spacious utility room and WC downstairs ideal for storing muddy boots after exploring the Yorkshire Dales.
Dexter also boasts a fantastic open plan large living and dining room, with high beamed ceilings and big skylights which give plenty of natural light. The open-plan living room has a comfy seating area with a cosy log burning stove, widescreen TV, and music system. From here are stunning South-facing views over the Holmedale Valley through the glazed sliding doors, which open onto the outside patio and down to the hot tub.
The dining room is the heart of this large luxury Yorkshire Dales holiday home. The size of this central area, and the beautiful styling by interior designers Niche Living, makes Dexter the perfect large holiday home for special occasions. There is enough space to comfortably seat 18 people around the dining table, whether you enjoy cooking or prefer our favourite Chefs and private dining menus.
There are five bedrooms in Dexter. Three have luxury en-suite bathrooms, and the other two share the spacious house bathroom. Two stylish bedrooms are on ground level, enjoying North facing views via floor-to-ceiling windows. Both bedrooms have king-size zip and link beds, so can be set up as twins or a double to suit. Both bedrooms have spacious en-suite bathrooms, with a luxurious bath and overhead shower.
Upstairs you will find the gorgeous French chateau-style master bedroom with a widescreen TV and North-East facing views out to the breathtaking Yorkshire Dales. You won't want to leave the comfy king-size bed or the luxury of the large en-suite bathroom. This features a large walk-in shower, double washbasins, underfloor heating, a heated towel rail, and a free-standing bath - the ideal space to relax and unwind after a day in the Dales.
The further two upstairs bedrooms also feature beautiful designs by Niche Interiors. Each has a king-size zip and link bed, which can be set up as twins or a double, with North facing windows across the Dales. The spacious house bathroom features a large bath with an overhead shower and heated towel rail.
The outside of this large luxury barn conversion is just as impressive; there are sprawling lawned gardens on three sides of the house. On a separate lower patio is the electric hot tub, where you can enjoy the bubbles combined with stargazing in the evenings. The private South-facing garden has an infinity-style wall, dropping down to a large paddock and offering superb views of the valley. On a warm summer's evening, it's an idyllic spot to take in the fresh air and relax in the Yorkshire sunshine. Dine al fresco with comfortable outdoor furniture and a charcoal BBQ.
There is free wi-fi throughout the holiday home and ample parking. The modern kitchen has a fridge-freezer, dishwasher, wine cooler, plus a full kitchen inventory for that home from home experience. A washing machine and tumble dryer are available. Dexter includes high-quality bed linen, towels, bathrobes, and luxury toiletries. There is a starter pack for the kitchen, fire, and washroom, and of course a locally sourced welcome hamper.

Dexter at Greenbank Barns is a luxurious large holiday home. Its size makes it an ideal house for large groups, and the ground floor bedrooms make it perfect for families with young children and more accessible for guests with limited mobility. There is a fitted stairgate at the top and bottom of the stairs.
The large parking area outside the front of Dexter is on gravel, and a paved path runs around the side of the house and out to the garden. Through the garden, there are three steps that lead down to the outdoor log-burning hot tub.
The floor to ceiling glass doors out from the living and dining room have a small lip but no step. Each of the four bathrooms has a bath and shower. Three have a bath with overhead shower, while the master bedroom's en-suite has a separate bath and walk-in shower. Overall, this is the perfect large holiday home for friends or families.
Dexter is easily accessible from the A1 and A66, though you wouldn’t tell with the far-reaching countryside views. A mile away is the pretty village of Ravensworth, known for its good village pub, The Bay Horse, and the remains of the 14th century Grade I listed Ravensworth Castle near the village green.
For stocking up with groceries for your stay, we recommend a visit to the nearest ‘village shop’ Mainsgill Farm Shop. About 1⁄2 mile away as the crow flies, it has a large food hall with award-winning local produce, wines and general groceries, a restaurant and a café. There are several good pubs with restaurants within a few miles; more information can be found in your guest information book. We recommend exploring the historic market towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle. Both are 15-20 minutes away, with many restaurants, cafés, and independent shops to discover.
While there are many great pubs, a popular choice for groups is to book a chef to cater in the privacy of your large luxury holiday home. Take a look at our private dining options. For those who enjoy being pampered, The Garage Spa is just a few miles west. Their spa facilities include a sauna, treatments, and massages.
