Brystone - West Stonesdale, Swaledale, North Yorkshire, The Yorkshire Dales, England - Sleeps 6


Brystone sleeps six guests in three bedrooms and is a luxurious three hundred year old Yorkshire Dales farmhouse that perfectly blends contemporary style with classic features.

Sitting in a superb location, Brystone nestles in the little hamlet of West Stonesdale within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

West Stonesdale is located inbetween Keld in Swaledale and Britain’s highest pub, the world famous Tan Hill Inn. This is real walking country with both the Pennine Way and Alfred Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk easily accessible from the farmhouse, along with plenty of other shorter walks across the stunning surrounding landscape. The nearby River Swale has a series of waterfalls (referred to as forces locally) with the more well known Wain Wath Force, East Gill Force, Catrake Force and Kisdon Force all just a short walk or drive from Brystone.

Brystone has been beautifully renovated by the owners with the help of local craftsmen who have preserved the wonderful original features whilst bringing it up to date with facilities expected for modern living. Providing a superb base from which to explore the many attractions of the Yorkshire Dales, Brystone provides a luxurious relaxing retreat where friends and families will want to return to time and time again.
