Brystone is a traditional 300 year old Yorkshire Dales stone farmhouse which sits within its own walled grounds with gardens on all sides and ample parking for several cars.
You have a choice of three doors to enter the house-one into the living room, one into the large utility/play room and one from one of the terraced patios at the rear of the house. The main front door takes you into the beautiful lounge with its old stone fireplace, wood burning stove and ample leather sofas and chairs. From this room you enter the lobby with a hand built oak staircase which is at the heart of the house.
The oak farmhouse kitchen is well equipped, has granite worktops and is open to the dining area so is a great space for meals with family and friends. Two steps down from the kitchen into what at one time was an attached little barn is the very spacious utility and playroom-great for storage or as a room that the kids can take over during your stay. There is also a good sized shower room on this floor.
Upstairs there is a stunning master bedroom with a superking oak bed, extra deep mattress and flatscreen TV. This bedroom has memorable views from both of the windows which you can enjoy from the comfort of the fantastic bed. Next to this bedroom is a good sized bathroom. There is also a king sized room, again with views across Stonesdale and a twin bedroom with ensuite shower room. The furniture throughout the cottage is mainly oak to match the handmade staircase, doors and woodwork of this lovely house.
The owners of Brystone are local farmers whose farm is just up the road and who have farmed at Stonesdale for generations. One of them is a local artist and there are a number of her local paintings in the farmhouse as well as old family photographs taken outside Brystone.
The house sits within its own gardens which are built into the slope of the hill behind. This means that there is a patio at the front of the house and also at the back of the house, with lawned gardens and rockeries on different levels, so that you can enjoy the views and the sun throughout the day. The gardens are either walled or gated and there is also a small garage for a small car or ample secure bike and other storage. There is parking for at least four cars. Garden furniture is provided as well as a chimenea. This is a great house for picnics outside in the garden.
