An 18th century Grade II listed Georgian country house in the picturesque village of West Burton, North Yorkshire in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
This fabulous house is ideal for a family holiday away from it all. Set over two floors, the house is full of charm and character with working shutters on almost all the windows.
The ground floor of Flanders Hall has three large sitting rooms, two with woodburning stoves, perfect if the group would like to split up and do their own thing. There is also a spacious farmhouse kitchen with a large dining table, ideal for enjoying a meal with friends and family after walks in the wonderful countryside.
Upstairs there are six comfortable bedrooms all including basins along with a wet room and a family bathroom with a freestanding bath. All the rooms have lovely views of the garden and surrounding landscape. This grand house is situated in lovely private grounds at the foot of Penhill.
In the gardens there are delightful areas to sit and enjoy the landscape and take in the views of Bolton Castle and beyond. Walden Beck runs through the grounds, adding to the tranquil atmosphere of the gardens in the summer months.
A short walk away is the delightful village of West Burton with its large village green, children's play area, village pub overlooking the green and the stunning Cauldron Falls. A mile away are the impressive Aysgarth Falls. Within twenty minutes' drive the popular Yorkshire Dales’ towns of Leyburn and Middleham offer an excellent choice of shops and places to eat and slightly further afield the picturesque towns of Reeth, Hawes and Richmond are all within easy reach.
Located in the heart of the Dales, this historic house and superb grounds is an ideal base for a memorable getaway.

PERFECTLY PLACED by Mrs Heritage, STOCKTON-ON-TEES, July 2016 on February 16th 2017
We absolutely loved Flanders House - it is very homely, slightly quirky, very welcoming and accommodating and perfectly placed. Fantastic views, totally peaceful, amazing gardens. We had the best time ever!
