Conveniently located off the A66, take a scenic route through the Yorkshire Dales and you will stumble upon Kingfisher, our latest Yorkshire Dales hideaway offering stylish accommodation for up to eight guests set amongst the most picturesque backdrop of the finest North Yorkshire countryside. Whether it’s a family getaway or a friends countryside retreat, this is the perfect place to disconnect from reality and focus on making memories on a luxury holiday in Yorkshire…
From the moment you set foot inside this charming cosy cottage, you will feel at home, where curling up on the plush, velvet sofa every evening in front of the roaring fire becomes a tradition. Enjoy some friendly competition at the pool table in the games room where the loser (or winner in this case) makes cocktails at the bar before sinking beneath the bubbles in the outdoor tub with nature’s show playing out in front of you. Soothe aching muscles after a long country ramble whilst watching the stars above on a dark Yorkshire night. Come bedtime, slink under the softest of throws and sleep easy to the sounds of nature’s neighbours outside.
North Yorkshire really comes to life in the Autumnal months, with September’s lingering evening sunshine, October’s ever-changing colours and letting the patter of rain and howling wind be the soundtrack to your holiday bliss in November. As the cooler weather approaches, the days are becoming crisper, autumn hues are starting to creep in and it is time to wrap up warm and explore North Yorkshire with the promise of peace and tranquillity during the quieter months.
Scrumptious spacious bedrooms, stylish interiors, under-floor heating and cosy log burning stoves make it easier to know that colder seasons are on their way and Kingfisher has it all… If it’s a dinner party for friends or cooking the ultimate family Sunday roast, Mainsgill Farmshop nearby offers the finest local produce along with delicious home-baked sweet treats. The kids will enjoy meeting Doris, Delilah and Camelot the camels whilst the adults choose tonight’s tipple from the huge array of local supplies.
Further afield, spend your time exploring the great outdoors with a variety of walks only a short drive away. Barnard Castle is within 20 minutes drive and provides a day out for all ages, with plenty of history, heritage and beauty on offer. A treasure trove for visitors and locals alike, you will find a 12th-century castle, impressive ruins of a fine medieval monastery, sensory gardens and the main attraction; Bowes Museum, an impressive French-style chateau offering a variety of collections across the centuries.
For a family-friendly day out, the market town of Richmond nearby also offers families a place to unwind from everyday life with plenty on offer to entertain all ages, set amongst a cobbled marketplace with museums and monuments steeped in history, riverside walks along the fast-flowing River Swale and an 11th-century castle surrounded by some of Britain’s most picturesque scenery.
Book a luxury break to Kingfisher this Autumn and look forward to countryside rambles with friends and family followed by evenings cosied up by the roaring fire and early nights tucked beneath heavy bedspreads.
