Nestled high above the Broughton Hall Estate, encompassed by 3000-acre shared grounds, there’s no better place for a rural retreat. Accessed by a single track, partly gravelled road, feel a part of the history in this 17th-century detached farmhouse. Thoughtfully renovated with your comfort in mind, yet still retaining many of its original features, Higher Scarcliffe boasts traditional décor with contemporary flourishes.You will be sure to fall in love with this luxurious home from the moment you step foot through the door. Wooden beams adorn the vaulted ceiling in the main living room, making it bright, light and full of elegance. Sink into one of the sumptuous sofas as you warm your toes in front of the glowing wood burner, enhanced by the grand stone fireplace. Admire the view over the garden and surrounding Yorkshire Dales through the picture window as you relax in an aura of peace and tranquillity. Your little ones will love the galleried seating area, accessed by turning stairs, making the perfect hideaway.If you don’t want to miss out on your favourite shows take a seat in the second living area and turn on the 32” Sky TV, with full Sky package. This social space also benefits from a cosy wood burner, so you can stay toasty and warm no matter where you spend you evening. As the day draws to a close, venture up the turning staircase to the first floor where 3 beamed bedrooms with zip and link beds, one with en-suite facilities, await you.If you’re early to rise, why not head downstairs and rustle up something tasty for breakfast in the farmhouse style kitchen, complete with an electric range cooker. Enjoy your breakfast al fresco out on the patio by the warmth of the chiminea, ideal for those cool winter mornings. Plan the day’s adventures whilst soaking in the picturesque landscape of the Yorkshire Dales that surrounds you. This charming abode is perfect for families and friends looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, yet be within easy reach of towns and attractions, and the owner has thoughtfully provided a complementary welcome pack including wine, milk and a selection of delicious homemade cakes.
