About this listing

Dating from 1727, Howesyke is a traditional Dales farmhouse nestled in 2000 acres of private farmland in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, in the little known dale of Bishopdale.  A secret haven located 20 minutes from Leyburn, a 5 minute drive from Aysgarth Falls and close to a network of public footpaths; inviting you to explore the Dales countryside and villages.

The beautiful stone farmhouse sits behind Bishopdale Beck, set back against the fells with the land rising to 1400 feet dramatically behind it.

Situated half a mile off the main road and retaining the original facade of the house, Howesyke has been recently extended and modernised to create a beautiful 8 bedroom farmhouse.  The Bothy, opposite the main farmhouse offers a private spacious 9th bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor.  The recent renovation added an extension onto the existing farmhouse, incorporating the adjoining barn into the domestic accommodation, creating a large area without losing the charm of the original features. Bedrooms 4, 5 and 8 can be doubles or twins.

Beautifully decorated with stunning views, the house is surrounded by a large terrace and garden. All bedrooms are ensuite.

The Entrance Hall leads into a large hall with a sweeping staircase, sofa, bar with stools and roulette table.  Double doors lead through to the  Sitting Room and another set to the Kitchen/ Dining Room.

The Hall also leads into the Snug with large sofas, armchair and smart tv.

There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.

The large Sitting Room is situated in the centre of the house with large comfy sofas, armchairs and log burner and three large windows overlooking the gardens with a wonderful view of Bishopdale.

The stunning large open plan light Kitchen/Dining Room has a dining room table with seating for 18, L shaped sofa, large island with seating.  The Kitchen boasts a large American style fridge, wine fridge, two electric ovens, induction hob and microwave.  French doors lead out to the terrace with seating and BBQ and a single door leads from the kitchen area out to the front of the house with terrace and seating.

The Entrance Hall also leads to the large Boot Room with stone flagged floor, Utility Room with washing machine and dryer and separate Cloakroom.

The sweeping wide Staircase leads upstairs to the large landing  leading to 8 beautifully interior designed double bedrooms, all with bathrooms ensuite.  The separate Bothy which is accessed across the terrace from the house has the 9th bedroom, with shower room ensuite and television.

The property also consists of a separate converted Barn with wood burning stove, original beams,  snooker table and stairs leading to mezzanine floor with table tennis table.  Large doors lead to a large open plan Sitting/Dining Room with comfy seating around a wood burning stove.  There is also a Cloakroom.

HOT TUB available please let us know at the time of booking if you would like to use this.  Thank you.

  • We stayed at the house for a weekend and it was outstanding in every respect. The decor, appliances and amenities were all the best you can get. On arrival we received a welcome hamper and a cake which was phenomenal. We really couldn’t fault it.

  • The house is beautiful and the photos don’t do justice to how gorgeous the house is inside, it is an absolute dream! Yorkshire Escapes were on hand all weekend, only a text message away should we have needed anything. I would recommend this place as a holiday to anyone, it feels very cosy and homely so is a perfect choice for large or small groups. My only regret is that we didn’t stay for longer, as after 3 nights, none of us wanted to leave!
