Nestled on the fabulous three thousand acre Broughton Sanctuary estate, the wonderful Eden House offers families and friends the perfect abode for a spot of switch off. It is a haven for hunkering down with the revered Yorkshire Dales on the doorstep so pack your walking boots and a good book or three as tranquility awaits at Eden House. When you decide to leave your private paradise, the amenities and activities available on the estate are truly wondrous and you will have access to them all, with the exception of the tennis court which only the guests of Broughton Hall can use. Eden House offers six exceptional bedrooms and sensational living spaces as well as its own private garden. It is ideal for multi-generational families or groups of friends. Broughton Sanctuary has been masterfully developed and offers the seventeen bedroom hall as well as sixteen separate holiday homes so if you want to bring another family along, there are plenty of other places to stay nearby.

The Broughton Hall Estate was established in 1097 and has been home to the Tempest family, one of England’s oldest Catholic landed gentry families, for over nine hundred years. With continual transformation and a mission to be a regenerative space rooted in the nature and wellbeing of humanity and the planet, the estate is now known as Broughton Sanctuary. The three thousand acre estate offers ancient woodland, parkland, heather moorland, reservoirs, walking trails, historic formal gardens, a luxury wellbeing centre, gym and an endless list of special attractions and entertainment venues. There is a wonderful hospitality team who will be on hand to attend to your every whim. In house chefs can create delicious meals and upscale events. The Tempest Family are believed to have come to England from Normandy during William Conqueror’s 1066 invasion of England and were given land in the aftermath of the invasion. Roger Tempest, the current custodian of Broughton Sanctuary is the thirty second generation of Tempests to be custodian of the sanctuary.

Eden House enjoys a fantastic location in the charming village of Broughton, less than ten minutes from the popular market town of Skipton. Skipton is often referred to as the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town hosts an award-winning market every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday throughout the year. It boasts the medieval Skipton Castle, a beautiful old parish church, excellent boutiques, unique shops, fabulous restaurants and charming traditional pubs. Skipton has previously been named as ‘Britain’s best place to live’ by the Sunday Times. The town is surrounded by spectacular landscapes including the iconic curved limestone cliff of Malham Cove, as seen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Steam railways are available from Embsay and Bolton Abbey and the Leeds to Liverpool Canal passes through Skipton. The amazing cathedral City of Ripon, Harrogate, York, the breathtaking Howardian Hills, the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the Lake District are all within easy reach.

Eden House sits on a three thousand acre estate less than ten minutes from Skipton, a fabulous gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. With its famous nine hundred year old castle, romantic ruined priory and historic cobbled High Street, the town is endlessly rich in history and outstanding natural beauty. The grand Skipton Castle forms a dramatic centrepiece of this bustling market town, overlooking a colourful maze of quaint streets, ancient woodland and famous waterways. Many of the town’s attractions are linked by the Millennium Walk route. You can stroll along the Springs Branch canal to Skipton Woods and relax on a Leeds to Liverpool canal cruiser.

The incredibly romantic Bolton Abbey Estate is just a stone’s throw away from Eden House. At the heart of the estate is the Priory Church and Ruins of an Augustinian Priory in a beautiful riverside setting. It is the perfect location to sit back and admire the stunning views. Also famous are the sixty stepping stones over the river that offer a fun and challenging experience. North of the stepping stones is a large beach area and lovely picnic spot.

Other Yorkshire Dales highlights include a lovely rewarding walk along the Valley of Desolation to Barden Fell and Simon’s Seat where the views are breathtaking. Strid Wood boasts one of the largest collections of sessile oak trees in the Yorkshire Dales. It hugs the banks of the River Wharfe inviting visitors to walk its shaded paths. The woods are famous for bluebells and wild garlic. Strid Wood is also home to a myriad of wildlife including roe deer, otters, kingfisher and greater spotted woodpecker.

For an extra special treat you could take to the skies or the water. A hot air balloon trip over this wonderful Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Nidderdale with a bird’s eye view of Skipton Castle, Bolton Abbey and many other attractions is wonderful.

For a grand day out, you can visit Parcevall Hall Gardens which were laid out by the late Sir William Milner and planted with exotic specimens from as far away as China and the Himalayas. The gardens have appeared in ‘Escape to the Country’ and ‘Hairy Bikers’.

Ripon is an atmospheric, charming cathedral city steeped in history and long observed traditions. It is home to numerous magnificient buildings including its 7th century gothic cathedral and a trio of award winning museums. Foodies will enjoy the delicious fine dining available and the whole family will be delighted with the entertainment provided. The city boasts a buzzy market place and reaching from the market place are a collection of narrow streets that are home to charming, eclectic independent shops and cafes. The city’s history is entwined with the church due to the cathedral and the city’s proximity to Fountains Abbey. One of the long observed traditions is the hornblower who has blown the horn at 9pm for 1100 years to ‘set the watch’. Visitors also enjoy Ripon’s outstanding racecourse and children in particular love the theme park. Ripon is a wonderful city to explore and enjoys lovely riverside and canal walks.

The wonderful City of York offers fabulous shopping opportunities and delicious meals in its many gastronomic restaurants. York’s beautifully preserved medieval city walls are the longest complete medieval town walls in England. York Minster is Europe’s largest gothic cathedral. Visitors enjoy climbing the two hundred and seventy five steps of its central tower to take in the fabulous panoramic views of the city. At the York Castle Museum, visitors go back in time in the streets of York and learn about the fascinating history of this incredible city. The Shambles have been voted the most picturesque street in Britain. You shouldn’t miss this ancient shopping street! One of the favourite York attractions is the Jorvik Viking Centre where visitors learn how the Viking-age streets looked one thousand years ago. The annual Viking Festival hosts many events in the streets and on the river. Every trip to York must include an afternoon tea stop at the famous Betty’s Tearooms. It was founded in 1919 and serves delicious cakes and teas. There are also nightly ghost walking tours in York, supposedly the most haunted city in Europe! Shoppers will delight in the many boutiques and designer stores plus there is an excellent Designer Outlet. Harrogate is a gorgeous Victorian spa town with wonderful shops, eateries and spa heritage.
