Imagine, in the splendour of the Yorkshire Dales, a stunning family holiday home playing on traditional and contemporary styles. The promise of opulent comfort inside and spectacular views beyond awaits.
Our first Visit England 5* Gold graded property in Yorkshire is a gem of diamond proportions. Stunning views, bespoke interiors, the works of renowned local artist, Lucy Pittaway, adorning the walls, and an Amazon Echo in every room. You can even watch your choice of TV programme from the bath in the master suite - there's attention to detail from top to bottom, including underfloor heating when the time is right.
An impressive gallery of modern oak and glass, and signature lighting that follows you through the house, greets you as you enter Feathered Nest. Immaculately finished throughout, your downstairs social space is largely open plan. In a bespoke kitchen with granite worktops, top notch appliances and double pantry, keen amateur chefs are in their element and your every need is met. Across to a dining area waiting for the bustle of breakfast and the laughter over supper after a day’s adventures in the Dales. Sink into the sofas afore the wood burning stove or look up to the dark skies from the stylish conservatory. From here, explore the wraparound balcony with its wraparound views that guide you to a beautifully landscaped garden and a babbling hot tub, and bike storage for Tour de Yorkshire fans. The glorious setting of Feathered Nest is heaped with history, royal connections, pretty market towns and some of the nations best race horse trainers, and that’s before you don your walking boots and hit the Dales.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
On the ground floor is a king size en suite bedroom and shower room. Upstairs are two similarly spacious rooms. The master presents a super king size bedroom you’ll struggle to leave of a morning with its views towards Middleham and beyond. The en suite with its standalone bath, more views and that integral TV call for evenings in, maybe mornings too. The third bedroom can be a twin or super king depending on the make up of your group and has use of a wet room with impressive digital shower. If only Alexa could bring you breakfast in bed.

The decor and attention to detail is exquisite!! It's been a pleasure and a privilege to stay in such a beautiful house. The welcome pack was a lovely touch as well. Thank you again and we can't wait to re-visit! - 21st January 2019
Once again had a fabulous time.Joanne & Simon - 4th January 2019
When you enter Feathered Nest the spacious hallway with beautiful staircase is amazing. The whole cottage has a warm and welcoming feel, with all bedrooms offering modern ensuites (all with underfloor heating!), and the views throughout are fabulous. The décor is second to none, and everything you could possibly want or need for a restful stay is available. The boot room gives ample space to leave wet coats and muddy boots, and the kitchen is equipped with the most up to date appliances. Our teenage girls loved the coffee machine and were totally spoilt with hot chocolate! The log burner was also a winner, especially during the cold snowy evenings. There is no doubt we will be returning to this fantastic cottage in the very near future. Thank you for having us :) - 30th December 2018
Thanks for a lovely Christmas! Everything judged perfectly - the warm welcome tree and decorations, hamper, cake and every other thoughtful touch. We've enjoyed very much this beautiful house and the surrounding area. Happy new year and all the best for the future. - 29th December 2018

Luxurious and stylish house, amazing views - what a wonderful way to spend a relaxing weekend!Brian Ford and Family from East and West Yorkshire - 27th April 2018
Feathered Nest is a beautiful & luxurious holiday house - definitely worth its 5* status. It was homely from the moment we walked in & was equiped with everything that you could ever want or need for a great holiday. Both the interior & exterior have been very tastefully done and all the fixtures & fittings are of the highest quality (the beds are so comfy!). The sun room has amazing views and the hot tub is very relaxing after a long walk (of which there are many in the local area). Andrew & Clare are very committed to making your stay as pleasant as possible & are extremely helpful with any queries that you might have. The welcome pack was very well received & as it was Easter, there were vases of beautiful spring flowers in many of the rooms - along with many other thoughtful touches. Mrs Lesley Smirk - 13th April 2018
Thank you for a perfect location for our short break. The cottage is wonderfully well equipped and so thoughtfully decorated. Such generous hosts!Patrick, Lauren, Isla, Rowan and family - 11th April 2018

What a great job you've both done. We all had an amazing time. Attention to detail was perfect.Lesley, Tom and family - 30th March 2018
We've had a wonderful stay here at Feathered Nest. Clare and Andrew are so welcoming and friendly. They really have thought of everything to make this a home from home. We can't wait to come back!Dan and Steve - 12th March 2018
We stayed at The Feathered Nest in February and it was fabulous! We were blown away from the moment we walked in. The kitchen/living area is fantastic with absolutely anything you could need/want. The real log burner is so cosy, perfect for finishing off a long day of walking in the Yorkshire Dales! The rooms are gorgeous, decorated beautifully and each have their own ensuite. The beds made for an exceptional nights sleep. The views overlooking Middleham and Penhill are amazing with a beautiful sunroom to relax and enjoy them. The attention to detail was incredible, from the artwork by a local artist to the map of the pubs within the Yorkshire Dales to help plan your time away, everything has been catered for. The Feathered Nest really needs to be visited to appreciate everything it has to offer, it really is 5 star gold! Tom and Emma Raw - 7th March 2018
We absolutely loved our weekend at Feathered Nest! The most beautiful and luxurious holiday cottage, with breathtaking views of the Yorkshire Dales. We received a welcome hamper on arrival which was a lovely surprise and thoroughly enjoyed over the course of our weekend - the homemade ‘Hedgerow’ Jam was a real hit! The decor is simply beautiful and all rooms are finished to the highest standard with modern conveniences and thoughtful finishing touches. The log burner in the lounge contributed to a cosy evening in and the comfortable beds with plush bedding ensured a peaceful nights sleep. A real home from home which is highly recommended - we will certainly stay again! Nichola & Miles Beattie - 11th February 2018
Had a lovely relaxing time here. Weather was kind , hot tub was great! House is fantastic . Thank you,you have been great hosts. The Butler Family
