Cool stay of the week: a renovated Georgian farm in the Yorkshire Dales

Laura Hampson

Historical beauty meets modern luxury at Telfit Farm, a renovated Georgian escape in the Yorkshire Dales.

One for larger groups or when you need a bit more space, this nine-bedroom getaway is located in a picturesque valley surrounded by beautiful countryside and the farmhouse has maintained its traditional touches but now has all the amenities needed for modern day living.

The drawing room is the heart of the home, complete with a large open fireplace and there is a separate television room with wood burning stove for cosy nights in.

Inside the main farmhouse are eight bedrooms, with the other room housed in the Cart House outside. The Cart House sits alongside the farmhouse and offers more privacy. Inside is a double bedroom with antique French bed, bathroom with bath and shower, kitchen, and sitting room.


From the kitchen in the main building French doors lead to the outside space. Here, there is a terrace and croquet lawn and more views across the rolling hills beyond. A converted barn completes Telfit Farm, which has a wood burning stove, oak floors, and original beams and is the ideal location for events; from weddings to yoga retreats.

There are several walking and cycling routes through one of Great Britain's most beautiful natural areas right on the doorstep. The market town of Richmond with its cobbled streets and mediaeval castle is only five miles away, while Leyburn, Reeth, and Hawes are also popular nearby destinations.
