Waterloo Lodge is our latest six-bedroom, dog friendly luxury country house near Richmond, North Yorkshire. It is the perfect rural retreat for large families and groups of friends looking to explore the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales.
Step inside this gorgeous holiday home with its contemporary farmhouse style. The architectural features include exposed brickwork and wooden beams, which compliment this stunning large country house. Make your way into the stylish lounge, boasting welcoming comfortable leather sofas, and full height glass bi-fold doors frame the unrivalled views over the North Yorkshire Moors. On a clear day you can even see as far as the sea. A double-sided log burning stove in the middle of the kitchen and living room is ready to be lit to enjoy a peaceful evening, possibly with a glass of wine in hand.
The spacious kitchen has everything you could need for a large self-catering group getaway. The traditional Aga guarantees plenty of space to make Sunday lunch for the whole party, alongside a farmhouse table with space for up to 12 guests. The kitchen island is the perfect spot for a morning coffee. A separate utility room is home to a washing machine and dryer, very handy for storing and cleaning muddy walking boots after a day exploring the Yorkshire Dales.
Waterloo Lodge also boasts a more formal living area with open fire, perfect for a lazy afternoon or drinks before dinner. Downstairs is also home to a handy WC.
Upstairs you will find four unique bedrooms. The master bedroom has a fabulous king-size bed, with urban style interiors alongside traditional oak beams. The master bedroom has a fantastic dressing room, as well as an en-suite bathroom with double sink and walk-in shower. Bedroom 2 and 3 have zip and link beds offering a twin or king size set-up. These share the large stylish house bathroom, offering a walk-in shower and a bath to indulge in a long hot soak. The final bedroom is a generous room with zip and link beds, offering a twin or king size set-up, and an en-suite shower room. All bedrooms have TV’s, so a morning lie in or an early evening is fully catered for!
Alongside the main house is a separate Annex offering two further bedrooms with private access. Each can be set as doubles or twins, and has a spacious en-suite shower room. Next door there is a large games room with a wide screen TV, comfy seating, pool table, table football and dart board among other distractions. The perfect place to keep the kids (and big kids) entertained!
Outside is just as impressive as inside with a delightful patio area featuring a jacuzzi hot tub, comfortable seating area and BBQ. The large lawned garden and fantastic views over the countryside beyond are an idyllic backdrop, making it a heavenly spot for some al fresco dining.
