Hazel Brow House

Richmond, Yorkshire

Steeped in rugged beauty, a handsome, traditional, welcoming Yorkshire home, a 30-minute drive from the highest pub in England


11 beds


8 bedrooms


Sleeps 14


A magical drive through Swaledale – ‘God’s own country’ – delivers you to little Low Row, a modest hamlet with a civilised pub, and this house on the roadside. Stroll round the back and there it stands in all its double-fronted glory, with a huge portico’d front door and a view to die for. A steep terraced garden leads down to lush farmland and grazing sheep… blow away the cobwebs and hike to Castle Bolton. Being large (eight bedrooms, five bathrooms) this is the perfect party house for families and friends who love this area of Yorkshire and of course the Great Outdoors. Hands-on owner Cath, who still lives locally, has worked her socks off to make it as new. Step inside to find a big dining table in front of an open fire, a sitting room with chesterfield sofas and a snug at the back, a boot room for muddy dogs and wet togs, and a scullery-type kitchen with a gleaming Aga. Sleep like royalty in bedrooms above (super-king beds; one four-poster) decorated and draped in rich traditional colours; soak in deep roll top tubs (all new). Georgian Richmond is 30 minutes away, handsome Reeth is down the road.

"Grand" gathering for 2 special birthdays aged 12 - 85. What a fantastic house with stunning views. Cath could not have been more helpful or accommodating. A special dinner from Lady G. cooked to perfection. 14 happy people! We hope to come back soon. Thanks

I hired Hazel Brow House for a weekend for myself, partner and 12 friends to celebrate a special birthday. We all enjoyed ourselves enormously. The house is well equipped, beds are all very comfortable with quality bedding. The dining room and sitting room were large enough to accommodate everyone and we loved the open fires. The view from the back of the house is simply stunning and made us wish that we were there in the summer, hopefully we will return then next time! Many thanks Catherine.

Hazel Brow was a fabulous place for a reunion of good friends. Stunning location, excellent facilities and a warm welcome from Cath. The house is wonderfully equipped - huge rooms, comfy beds, roaring fire, every detail is covered, including a welcome pack of local produce. The snow the weekend we were there was the icing on the cake.

Fantastic house in a beautiful location - perfect for large family get togethers.


We have just got back from a fantastic ruby wedding celebration .the house was all we dreamed of .lovely and warm coal fire great not that we needed it ,it was just to give a nice glow in the fire place .the scenery from the front door sitting in the garden was so magical .everything you needed was on hand .so peaceful ,so relaxing .fourteen of us went and never under anyone's feet .such a fantastic place to have a celebration .felt like being in a mansion but very cosy .the dining room was such a lovely room to have dinner.three refrigerators so no need to worry about keeping things chilled .


We had a fantastic stay at Hazel Brow. Four generations aged from 84 to 7 weeks came together to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday. The house is perfect for large party gatherings. Everything about the house is 5 star from the large reception rooms with stunning views of Swaledale, to the large comfortable bedrooms, fabulous bathrooms and well equipped kitchen. Everything you could wish for is close at hand, and owner Cath was a great hope both prior to our stay and during our visit. Everyone had a wonderful time and all agreed we would love to return.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Catherine Calvert

  • Brilliant walks. Follow the waterfalls down the river Swale, head up to England’s Highest pub (following part of the Pennine way), trek over the heather moors where you’ll hear the grouse and curlews call, or meander along the many local scenic footpaths.
  • Oodles of Heritage. We're surrounded by Castles at Richmond, Middleham, Raby or Barnard Castle and Abbeys at Jervaulx, Fountains, or a little further, Rivaulx, Byland and Bolton Abbey
  • Superb Shopping. The market towns of Reeth, Leyburn, Hawes, Barnard Castle and Richmond are all within a 1/2 hrs drive. You'll find cobbled streets, quaint little shops and some good old fashioned hospitality.
  • Great Pubs - we're lucky enough to have a great eating house at the Punch Bowl Inn, right in the village of Low Row and some great little local pubs, all within walking distance at Gunnerside, Langthwaite, Muker, Grinton and Reeth
  • Fantastic Fishing. Hazel Brow looks over meadow fields to the River Swale, the fastest flowing in England where Trout fishing is available in season.
  • Brilliant for Relaxing – just sit and enjoy the sights and sounds, the country air. Laze around the garden in the summer or take in the views from the cosy firesides in winter.
