Sun Hill Farmhouse is a traditional five-bedroom, dog-friendly, country house located within the grounds of Sun Hill stables. A large luxury holiday cottage with a games room, bar area, dining room, and an outdoor hot tub are just some of its unique features.
Dating back to the 18th Century, this gorgeous Yorkshire farmhouse has an elegant mix of modern and traditional interiors throughout. Set in stunning gardens, Sun Hill Farmhouse also has superb views across the Wensleydale landscape. The Sun Hill Racing yard is nationally famed for its training of racehorses, based in Constable Burton, near Leyburn, North Yorkshire.
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 a 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. Modern comforts including two electric ovens, 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 make 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.
Steps from the hallway lead down to a stylish orangery with an established grapevine, dining table, and further comfortable seating. 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. When taking all three properties as a large luxury holiday cottage, on prior request the conservatory table can be extended for the group.
Upstairs you will find four large, comfortable bedrooms, each with its own en-suite facilities. Sun Hill Farmhouse is the perfect large luxury holiday home for a group getaway in Yorkshire. Two of the bedrooms are fixed doubles, while two have large beds that can be split and set up as twins.
Three of the en-suite 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.
The Garden Room is a fifth en-suite bedroom nestled in the farmhouse garden, separate to the main house. In the style of a lodge, it is the perfect combination of country and chic, where no luxury has been spared. The super-king-size four-poster bed is sumptuous and a striking feature of the bedroom, and there's plenty of storage, tea and coffee, and air conditioning. Whilst relaxing in the large freestanding bath take in the private garden views. Separate is the WC and walk-in shower.
Outside is equally as special, 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 a 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 alfresco 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!
You can look at additional activities during your stay such as stable tours, private dine-in chefs & treatments here.
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. Included is a starter pack for the kitchen, fire, and washroom, and of course a locally sourced welcome hamper.
