Patience Place

Northallerton, Yorkshire

Smart first floor apartment for couples in separate wing of Georgian country house. Explore North Yorkshire, return to great comfort


1 bed


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


Come for the privilege of staying in this listed Georgian country house perched above the River Swale and surrounded by its own fecund parkland. You’ll feel nicely private in your own first floor apartment in a separate wing: find a light bright living room with fresh gingham curtains, a comfy sofa, a wood-burner for chilly nights and plenty of art on the walls. There’s a smartly-equipped, gleaming kitchen where Isobel leaves you all the basics but also homemade flapjack – lovely to come home to after a hearty walk. The bedroom is restful in cream and duck egg blue, the deep mattress piled high with white cotton linen and a feather duvet; the large bathroom (not separate – put the screen up if you’re modest) has lovely soft towels and White Company treats. Don your wellies and take a tour of the grounds, play tennis or fish here (by arrangement), hike seriously in the Dales or Moors, explore York and Harrogate for shopping and culture, visit the small rural market towns of Northallerton or Thirsk for quirky independent shops. Or simply stay put and hunker down if you prefer peace and quiet.

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at Patience Place: comfort, relaxation, a warm welcome and everything else we could have wished for during our brief stay. Located in tranquil surroundings, this is a wonderful location to unwind and be immersed in Yorkshire's natural beauty.

Patience Place is in the most beautiful setting and grounds. We couldn't recommend it more, it is within great proximity to nearby vilages, towns and some great pubs and walks. Issy and James were lovely and extremely helpful. We would highly recommend the cottage, which is perfect. The fire is delightful and all the products, treats, linen towel etc are great. Thank you Issy, Love the Baldwins x

  • Great location for visiting wonderful castles, houses and gardens such as Kiplin Hall, Bolton Castle, Castle Howard of Brideshead fame, Newby Hall and Gardens. and within easy reach of Durham and Ripon Cathedral, York Minster and Fountains Abbey.
  • There are some VERY GOOD restaurants nearby including THE WORLD'S FAMOUS MICHELIN RESTAURANT, THE BLACK SWAN AT OLDSTEAD, and the Crab and Lobster at Asenby,
  • Visit some of North Yorkshires very pretty unspoilt beaches such as Robin Hoods Bay, Runswick Bay and Staithes, the latter well known for artists.
  • Thorp Perrow Arboretum is very close and well worth a visit for some wonderful colour all year round. Or try a relaxing cranial sacrial treatment with the well known Lulu Ferrand, who comes for 2 days every 2 weeks, so, by prior arrangement only.
  • If you are keen on horses, why not try your luck?there is Racing at Catterick (10 minutes drive) Thirsk, Ripon Redcar, York and Doncaster.
  • Tennants Auction Rooms at Leyburn have house sales every two weeks and Catalogue sales in the Spring Summer and Autumn, you might be able to pick up a bargain! For some relaxing retail therapy try Harrogate York or Newcastle.
