Surrounded by stone walls, sheep and Howgill Fells… in the glorious Yorkshire Dales National Park. Well-travelled Fiona and Graham have restored the barn next to their farmhouse into deeply comfortable, smart spaces. Graham was born in India and tea plays a big part here! Arrive to a mound of scones, meringues, triple choc brownies. Sitting and dining rooms are upstairs: high rafters, Indian art, colourful elephant side tables. Tuck into breakfast at the big communal table: wild boar bacon, venison sausages, veggy choices, homemade bread; lively dinners too. Sedburgh is a hop; return to a sunny terrace, toasty wood-burners, a wonderfully luxurious bed.
