Overview

About the property

A fabulous, seven bedroom country house, made up of a main house and an annexe, located in the centre of Kettlewell. Two woodburners. AGA, king-size beds. WiFi. Three award-winning pubs nearby. Grassington 7 miles.

Fern House is a wonderful country retreat for families and groups of friends; a beautiful, detached country house in the village of Kettlewell, across the road from a pretty beck. The property was once the blacksmiths to the coaching in and stables up the road, and now offers fabulous accommodation split over the main house and an annexe. The main house has seven bedrooms, three with TVs and king-size beds, one with an en-suite and one with the zip/link option of becoming a twin. There is also a family bathroom and ground floor WC, a kitchen with a dining area for four, a dining room seating eight and a sitting room with a woodburning stove. In the annexe, there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin, a bathroom, a kitchen with a dining area for four, and a sitting room with a woodburner of its own. The two parts of the house share an enclosed lawned garden and patio with furniture, plus two off road parking spaces, though there is also roadside parking available outside the house. In a great base for walking, with the stunning Dales stretching on either direction of the village, Fern House is perfect for a Yorkshire getaway.

Oil-fired AGA, electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer with drinks dispenser, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, 5 x TVs with Freeview, DVD, WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs.

Non-existent WiFi in the house, but a really lovely place to stay and a great location.

  • 3 of 5

Lovely house in a fabulous village, georgeous Dales scenery, and a great pub (The Bluebell) a few doors away. It is very well furnished, the beds are superb, and the kitchen is very well equipped (though we were rightly advised to bring our own red wine glasses!). BUT we did really need WiFi as several of us had to do some work while we were there, and it was, for us, an essential requirement. It is simply a completely useless set up in the house, and it is a standing joke in the village that the Internet works fine in the pub and the village shop etc but not at Fern House. The phone signal is very bad, but that cannot be blamed on the house, and it was better near the pub. There were several other maintenance problems too, including a broken electric oven, (though the Aga worked fine), non functioning TVs, the underperforming (and therefore embarrassing) bathroom toilet in the main house , which did not flush effectively, intermittent heating in the annexe, and some other minor issues. It's a real shame as otherwise it is really gorgeous. The managing agents seem very professional and friendly and as they now fully aware of the issues, hopefully, they will get sorted out promptly.
