The Rash

The Rash is a converted stone-built period former farmhouse and barn providing a perfect family home in a superb setting with stunning views in all directions over the classic Swaledale

countryside. It has been comprehensively updated in recent years, retaining the period features but enhancing the lifestyle having had, amongst other upgrades, a wood pellet heating

system installed making this house cosy and more cost efficient to run. It is currently used as a successful holiday let business, which sleeps up to nine, with four double bedrooms and one single bedroom. It works very well in this capacity, but equally makes an excellent large permanent home. The accommodation includes a superb dining hall with open vaulted ceiling and gallery, dining kitchen, cosy sitting room, boot room, five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The property is set within its own grounds which include a gravel parking area and lovely walled garden with beautiful private south-facing stone terrace - not too much, but enough,

to enjoy the outside space without too much maintenance. It is set amidst fields with the front field being a site of special scientific interest and being a fabulous meadow in the spring

and summer months, although this does not belong to The Rash there is right of access over it. In addition, there is a garage which is set up with the hopper for the wood pellet storage and a second garage on the main road.

Ground Floor Accommodation

The property is entered via the Boot Room with a quarried tiled floor and fitted base units with a double bowl sink and a hob. From here there is access to a ground floor cloaks/WC. The staircase rises to one of the bedrooms and there is also access to the superb dining hall. This is a fine double height room with vaulted and beamed ceilings with roof lights and a gallery. This room has a stone flagged floor with underfloor heating and large wood-burning stove and large French doors to the courtyard area. From here there is access to the dining kitchen which is fitted with a range of base cupboards in Oak with granite work surfaces incorporating an integrated dishwasher and gas cooker which is operated from gas bottles.

This room leads to the sitting room which is dual aspect with a stone flagged floor and an exposed stone wall to the gable end with a wood burning stove and there are French doors

leading to the garden. From here there is access to the rear hall which, in turn, provides access to the Dairy with stone slab shelves, laundry/utility and a ground floor shower/WC,

plus having a stone staircase rising to the first floor.

First Floor Accommodation

The first floor is accessible from two staircases, one from the boot room and the other from the rear hall. From here there is access to all five bedrooms and two house bathrooms. One of the bathrooms has a double ended bath.


The property is approached via a track from the main road between Gunnerside and Muker. At the bottom of the track is a detached garage with an up and over door which belongs to the property. The access track is over a field which is not in the ownership of The Rash, however this has a right of way over it. Once you reach The Rash, there is a five-bar gate allowing access to a walled and gravelled courtyard with onsite parking for several vehicles. There is an attached garage which houses the wood pellet central heating system and access into a walled garden to the eastern side of The Rash which is very pleasant with lawn and mature trees. There is also an external store at the front of the building which houses the large modern pressurised hot water cylinder.
