Leyburn, North Yorkshire, England
Rowan House is a particularly well appointed family home, sleeping 7 to 8 guests in comfort.

Nothing is left to chance: a cozy sitting room with open log fire: a games room with console and beanbags for our younger guests: a separate, large family / dining room with exposed beams, stone walls and stone flagged floors; a real cook's kitchen with a two oven electric Aga, modern oak units and hardwood worktops, fridge / freezer, dishwasher, microwave etc; the stone flagged floors in the kitchen and living area are cool in the summer, but thanks to underfloor heating, warm in winter too!

Plenty of room for all the family, the master bedroom has a king size bed and en-suite bathroom, there is a further bathroom with shower upstairs, and a shower room downstairs too. The fourth bedroom is a single one, with a full size single pull out...
