We came here as a group of 11 friends looking to walk in the Dales. This house is in a great location, alongside the river and a short walk to the village centre and to Cauldron Falls where we saw salmon leaping upstream. The local walks were fine for us 60+ year olds but clearly there are more challenging expeditions in the locality .
This beautiful house is in the most stunning area. Out of every window the views are breathtaking. Good pub within walking distance. We were a large family group of 12, with 4 small children. There was so much room for them to run about safely. The owner was extremely helpful. I cannot think of anything I would have changed. Perfect.
Truly amazing house situated in a lovely village with a friendly pub. It has everything to cater for all members of the party, 2 and 4 legged. We took full advantage of the amazing gardens, walks from the front door and well equipped kitchen. All the rooms were large and beds comfortable. The bus into Leyburn was quite the adventure, the driver had never picked up 12 passengers from West Burton...we may go down in local history! If your looking for a large venue for friends and or family I'd highly recommend Flanders Hall, we had an amazing week.
We were a group of 12 - myself, husband, 6 children and 4 of their partners. Age range 17 - 60. Hit the jackpot with this property and then some! Set in the Yorkshire Dales National Park amidst the most breathtaking scenery. The house is fabulous. More room than we knew what to do with and very well equipped. Perfect for catering for large, mixed age groups as plenty of space to all congregate together socially but more than enough rooms / gardens for smaller groups.
I cannot rate this house highly enough. It is just simply magnificent. We had an amazing week there and were genuinely sad to leave. Everything about it was just wonderful.
We took a croquet set with us and that was very well used on the lawn in front of the house. Just next to that there is another separate lawn with a football net. One evening all the girls sloped off inside leaving all the fellas to put the worlds to rights around the firepit in the orchard.
The house was situated a very short walk from the village green where we made use of the pub, village shop and the green. Locals were very friendly and helpful. It was a brilliant base to sightsee from with lots of local things to see and do. We did Aysgarth Falls (took a picnic and spent all afternoon there), Wensleydale Creamery, Hawes Ropemakers, The old Saw Mill and Bolton Castle. Visited Leyburn several times as large Co-Op there and some lovely little independent shops.
Jo (one of the owners) was incredibly helpful in the lead up to the holiday and gave us lots of useful local information and was beyond patient with the numerous queries I had. Her sister Caroline (who we met at the Hall) was charming. Again - very friendly and helpful.
I genuinely cannot recommend Flanders Hall enough. I'd go back tomorrow in a heartbeat and we are already planning another family holiday there. In short - book this house. You will be blown away. We were.
This house was absolutely fabulous. We had a fantastic week. My grandkids loved it. My daughter-in-law's parents, from Poland loved it too.
Will definitely book again, sometime next year.
