  The Detail...

Historical beauty meets modern luxury at Telfit Farm, a renovated Georgian escape in the rural charm of the Yorkshire Dales. The 9 bedroom getaway is located in a picturesque valley and is surrounded by beautiful countryside.

The farmhouse is home to 9 bedrooms and has maintained its traditional touches but now has all the amenities needed for 21st Century living. Guests enter Telfit Farm into a spacious hall which runs into the drawing room at the heart of the home, complete with a large open fireplace. There is also a further television room with wood burning stove for those cosy nights in. The family kitchen is fully equipped with American style fridges and a range cooker, making it perfect for preparing culinary delights to be enjoyed in the dining area in the attached conservatory.

The first of the 8 bedrooms is a double and is also located on the ground floor along with an en-suite bathroom. Upstairs are 7 further bedrooms, 6 of which are doubles with 3 of those having the capacity to be turned into twins. There is also a twin bedroom and then the master suite - which has spectacular views across the Dales and is complete with a king size bed and private bathroom with antique freestanding bath and separate shower.

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. Finally, 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 medieval castle is only 5 miles away, while Leyburn, Reeth, and Hawes are also popular nearby destinations.

Bethany Passaro says...
"I cannot speak highly enough of Telfit Farm. It was the most perfect weekend with friends we could have asked for. The views are incredible and you feel like you’re in your own world. Everything from the kitchen to the lounge areas, to the bedrooms and en-suites have been designed and created beautifully. The other annexes are also amazing, with a ping pong table and yoga room where we had a class overlooking the beautiful Dales. If you’re looking for somewhere to retreat, relax and refresh this is the place to go. Can’t also speak more highly of Victoria for all of her help and guidance!"

"This incredible farmhouse complex in a remote rural location has been recently renovated to a very high standard and by someone with a real sense of attention to detail , the interiors are modern and beautifully decorated and all the fixtures and fittings compliment the house perfectly . The renovation had breathed life into this farm complex again and It has been done with no expense spared . We had a wonderful night there recently with a large group and waking up on a crisp sunny morning and realising how spectacularly beautiful the setting was after a night arrival was the final icing in the cake . Five stars no problem ."

"Telfit is heaven in the Yorkshire Dales!! Woke up in the morning and opened my bedroom curtains to breathtaking unspoilt views and silence. The house has been beautifully restored to the highest of standards. I was lucky enough to stay in the Cart House which is was so warm and comfortable. This total gem that has truely lifted the bar on accommodation in the Yorkshire Dales!!!"

Tim says...
"Fabulous house and wonderful catering. Beds super comfortable with lovely pillows and sheets made for a restful night. Breathtaking views down the secluded valley. The walks are many and varied if you want to work up an appetite which we did, from following the stream to stretching for the valley tops for the glorious views. This house is a proper country house, welcoming in a classically English style...with added comfort. Some lovely swanky marble in the our bathroom. Toasty warm. It sits in cleverly landscaped surrounds that blend perfectly with the surrounding steep valleys. Will definately stay again, can't wait to be back."

Phillippa May says...
"The excitement built as we drove up the awe inspiring dale to this magnificent destination. We arrived at what seemed to be a hamlet of beautifully restored buildings sensitively landscaped, and what a delight awaited.
Walking in through the front door made me smile, no sludgey paint here, instead a confident pallate of wall paper, eclectic pictures and funiture.
The entire house was so generously furnished and appointed that I couldn't praise it enough. I haven't even mentioned the catering yet - that too was amazing.
Counting down the days to my next visit..... thank you Telfit"

Nick says...
"Extremely comfortable, all new fittings and everything worked well. The setting is stunning and could be in a world of its own. We were catered for and the food was excellent and imaginative. No hesitation in recommending Telfit"
(Stayed: September 2018 )
NLF says...
"What a perfect spot with a stunning view down the Dale. Everything in the House is beautifully designed and decorated. My bed was very comfortable as was my en suite bathroom.
The party rooms were still being worked on when I stayed, but I'd be confident that the too will be fabulous."
