Could not rate this property any higher ! It was just perfect for our party of seven adults, a child and a toddler.
Grand scale all rooms in a perfect location for a great holiday away from it all.
Good eating just a couple of miles up the road and the market town of Leyburn within easy reach for anything else we needed.
We would not hesitate to return to this beautiful property.
With many thanks to the owners.

This was the second time we stayed at the Rookery, and it was just as good! Beautiful big rooms, plenty of downstairs space for everyone to spread out, wonderful views of the hill opposite. I love the little extra touches - tissues in every room, wine and chocolates on arrival, the fires ready to light etc. It was a place our whole family could come together and not feel cramped or on top of one another. We enjoyed the games room, and the board games, especially Qwirkle.
The kitchen was well stocked, and it was fun using the Aga - though the oven takes a bit of working out where the hottest part is. It was much drier this time round, so we didn't make much use of the drying room, but last time it was a life saver for our soggy boots and coats.
We had some wonderful walks nearby too, with stunning scenery.

Second time staying and we do love this place. So much space - our two households virtually have a wing each upstairs. Loads of cooking equipment and a lovely Aga. The games room was used permanently whilst we were in the house - difficult to drag teens away, despite old darts (bring your own to avoid frustration) and a very well worn but perfectly serviceable pool table.
You do need to remember this is a country property and there is wildlife around (field mice and loads of flies), but the location, views and wonderful space are more than compensation.
Susan and Brian are so friendly and helpful, but leave you to enjoy your holiday unless you need them.

5 of us stayed during a sunny week in the dales. House was lovely with all the amenities you could ask for. Everything was well organised and information from both Country Hideaways and the owner spot on.
We were admittedly very fortunate with the weather but, even so, the property did not disappoint and would a great base, whatever the weather.
You do need a car to get to the nearest pub or eatery but theres plenty of cooking utilities if youre happy to cook your own food. Beds were also comfy but duvets were a tad heavy given the temperature.
All in all, thoroughly recommended!
