Sun Hill Farmhouse is a traditional five-bedroom, dog-friendly, luxury country house located within the grounds of Sun Hill stables. The yard is nationally famed for its training of racehorses, based in Constable Burton, near Leyburn, North Yorkshire.
Dating back to the 18th Century, this gorgeous Yorkshire farmhouse has an elegant mix of modern and traditional interiors throughout. The dining room, games room with bar area, and an outdoor hot tub are just some of its unique feature. Set in stunning gardens, Sun Hill Farmhouse also has superb views across the Wensleydale landscape.
Sun Hill Farmhouse is full of character with exposed beams, original fireplaces and flagstone floors to add to the period appeal. This fantastic holiday home boasts a gorgeous farmhouse-style kitchen. There is appealing four oven Aga, breakfast island, comfy seating area with log burning stove and a flat screen TV to enjoy whilst cooking up a storm in the kitchen. You will find everything you should need on a luxury self-catering holiday in Yorkshire, as well as lots of modern comforts including two electric ovens, coffee machine, and two large American-style fridge freezers making it perfect for large groups.
A formal dining room sits next door to the kitchen. The large dining table, crystal glassware and colourful and traditional styling makes it the perfect space for a decadent get-together on an evening. We can even arrange a private chef to cook for your group, to make your stay even more memorable.
At the heart of the home is the generous living area with comfy seating and a large open fire; the perfect welcome home after a day exploring the Yorkshire Dales. While away the evening on the grand piano or over a game of chess.
Next door you will find a stylish orangery with an established grapevine, dining table and further comfortable seating. The conservatory table can be extended for larger parties of up to 20, when also taking Sun Hill Cottage and The Palins for larger groups wanting a big group holiday home. Patio doors open leading into the garden, with unrivalled views of the stunning Wensleydale landscape where horses can be seen grazing in the paddocks and on the gallops.
Sun Hill Farmhouse is the perfect large luxury holiday home for a group getaway in North Yorkshire. Upstairs you will find four large, comfortable bedrooms, each with their own en-suite facilities. Two of the bedrooms are fixed doubles, while two have large beds that can be split into twin rooms. Three of the bathrooms have baths – so there’s no fighting after a long winter’s walk in the Dales – and one is an en-suite shower room. We love the stylish copper roll-top bath in the master bedroom, perfect for a long evening soak.
A stunning new addition to Sun Hill Farmhouse is the Garden Room, a fifth bedroom launched in October 2019. This bedroom is in the style of a lodge, sitting separately, nestled in the gardens of Sun Hill Farm. It is the perfect combination of country and chic, where no luxury has been spared. The super-king-size four-poster bed is comfortable and luxurious, and just one striking feature of the bedroom. There is also a large freestanding bath perfectly placed by the window, plenty of storage, tea and coffee, and air conditioning. Take in private views of the garden while relaxing in the tub after a day’s exploring. The en-suite bathroom has a walk-in shower and separate WC.
Outside is equally as special at Sun Hill Farmhouse with over an acre of stunning private gardens to explore. Each part of the garden has been carefully designed for maximum enjoyment throughout the year, with stunning seasonal displays of mature shrubs and flowers. The garden makes this house an absolute must for garden and nature lovers alike. It has been enclosed to make it more dog-friendly, with fencing separating the garden from the paddocks beyond.
There are several seating areas to choose from, depending on the time of day. You can enjoy an al fresco breakfast or a BBQ lunch from the charcoal BBQ area, with total peace and quiet. There is a sheltered patio at the back of the house with a covered outdoor jacuzzi hot tub which can be used all year round. This looks out over the garden ensuring you relax and unwind. Beyond the garden enjoy watching the horses frolic around in the next field. Gardens don’t really come much better than this!
There is free wi-fi throughout this large holiday home. The kitchen has a full inventory for that home from home experience, including a large fridge, Aga and ovens, boiling water on tap, two dishwashers and a coffee machine. A boot room can also be found downstairs with an additional American-style fridge freezer, washing machine and dryer. There is a separate WC. This luxury holiday home includes high-quality bed linen, towels, bathrobes and toiletries.
