Modern interiors meet original features in this use-to-be Coach House, now a perfect boutique bolthole abode for two! Relax in the open-plan living area and stylish bedroom, or head out to explore the area.
In the village of Scargill, you are perfectly located to explore the Yorkshire Dales and the nearby towns of Barnard Castle and Richmond. Explorers will indulge in the nearby activities, as well as the romantic retreat which the cottage provides after a long day out. Relax in front of the roaring log burner and enjoy al fresco dining whilst listening to birdsong outside. This escape is designed to help you forget about the every-day for a while, and you will not be disappointed. The unique and stylish interiors give plenty of inspiration.
A far cry from city life, this stylish romantic cottage getaway promises guests a unique opportunity to recharge their batteries. Enter into the vibrant open-plan living area which provides vast amounts of space to enjoy. High ceilings add to the effect, allowing plenty of natural light to flood in.
The rich teal walls of the kitchen and carved wooden furniture balance perfectly with the steel beams and polished concrete floors, giving a modern twist to this old Coach House.
The sitting room centres around a built-in log burner, perfect for returning after a long walk or just for snuggling on the huge leather L-shaped sofa. There is a large wall-mounted smart TV, or pick up one of the books that adorn the shelves on a cosy evening in.
The kitchen and dining area are open plan, plus there’s a breakfast bar. There is access to great pub food nearby, or for those who like to cook up a storm, the large kitchen is well-equipped. There’s an induction hob, electric oven, large Smeg fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave and separate wine fridge. Make morning coffees using the Nespresso machine, which includes a starter pack of capsules.
The dining table seats up to 6 guests, for those who also have the neighbouring Bothy cottage booked. The table is separated from the kitchen by the breakfast bar, to give space for workers catching up on emails or for a decadent meal in prepared by one of our partner private chefs. Pop along to Coghlans for some local deli shop produce as well as a great selection of a la carte dine at home meal options so you can put your feet up!
Through the glass French doors is the spacious bedroom, characterful with exposed stonework, plenty of storage and bespoke furniture. Rest your head on the Super King-sized bed, framed with a bespoke wooden headboard, with subtle night lights for reading. This tranquil hideaway includes a quiet corner with a writing desk and dressing table.
Concealed sliding glass doors separate off the bedroom ensuite. The decadent freestanding bath is perfect for a soak in the bubbles after a busy day exploring, and there is a separate shower.
In front of the Coach House is a gravel parking area running the length of the house. Through bi-fold doors from the kitchen is an open pagoda with a wooden table and chairs, for an all-round dining experience. There’s also a charcoal BBQ.
Please follow the signs for parking, there is allocated parking to the right of the properties in front of the fence by the big tree. Feel free to unload your car at the door but once unloaded move it to the parking place.
Although the surrounding grounds are private, for a morning stretch of the legs or a longer stroll, a public footpath starts the other side of the garden gate through the fields.
On arrival, you will find a locally sourced welcome hamper. The modern kitchen has a full kitchen inventory for a home from home experience, and a starter pack of logs, kindling, and luxury toiletries are included. There is wi-fi throughout.
The property is accessible from a private driveway, with two neighbouring properties within the grounds. One of these properties is a family home, and the other property is The Bothy which is a two-bedroom property which sits behind The Coach House. Both properties can be booked together for groups of up to 6 guests.
There is a separate cloakroom, located off the kitchen. Due to the generous open plan layout, The Coach House is a great property for anyone looking for accessible accommodation with a ground floor bedroom.
This is a pet free property. Please note there is no washing machine.
Situated next door to The Coach House is it's sister property The Bothy, a two-bed country cottage in the Yorkshire Dales. Book both properties together and make Scargill Lodge Cottages well suited to extended family or an escape with friends; in the Coach House, you can seat 6 for dinner. However, the outlook of each property means there is privacy when they are not booked together.
The Bothy is located near Barnard Castle on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, with plenty of beautiful walks straight from the front door as well as being within easy reach of the Lakes District National Parks and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are plenty of great places to eat and drink nearby, the closest being The Milbank Arms in Barningham where you can enjoy the welcoming Yorkshire atmosphere in the main bar or catch up around the open log fire. During Spring and Summer months they also offer an outdoor kitchen. While in Barningham, pop in to Coghlans for some local deli shop produce as well as a great selection of ‘a la carte’ dine-at-home meal options.
Barnard Castle is only a 10 minute drive away and is a must-visit for a day out. Experience the rich history, heritage and beauty that the unique market town offers, renowned for its small independent shops selling cheeses, breads, antiques, interiors and gifts. Barnard Castle’s market day is held on ‘the cobbles’ in the marketplace every Wednesday. The main attraction is the Bowes Museum, an impressive French-style chateau, surrounded by gardens and parkland. The museum houses a collection of European fine and decorative arts and is regarded as one of the most significant museums outside of London.
There is a great walking route from Barningham with fabulous views before arriving at the large man-made Stang Forest. The walk emerges from the forest into arable countryside, as far as the tiny hamlet of Thwaite. Then enter into the wild wooded River Greta gorge in the area known as Brignall Banks. The walk emerges from the gorge into farming land for a short walk back to Barningham Village. Further afield, the picturesque village of Romaldkirk has the Rose and Crown and Mickleton has The Crown, both with great menus for a delicious lunch, a more substantial evening meal or to just enjoy a drink in front of the roaring fire.
If you can’t bring yourself to spend time away from your holiday home, there are plenty of fabulous farm shops nearby to pick up some produce to eat in the garden. Cross Lanes Organic Farm Shop is located only a few minutes away on the A66, with a food hall where you can stock up when you arrive and a cafe. It also holds Bistro evenings at weekends and a number of events outdoors throughout the year. The ever-popular Mainsgill Farmshop is also nearby with a vast selection of award-winning local produce as well as traditionally home-reared meats, a delicatessen and an award-winning bakery. Pop in and meet the animals, which include Doris, Delilah and Camelot the camels as well as llamas, lambs and pigs before stocking up on local produce or eat in the traditional tea room.
