Skyreholme is a small hamlet alongside Appletreewick, around 9 miles to the North of Skipton, set within spectacular Yorkshire Dales National Park scenery, with the River Wharfe meandering through the village and some of the county's most renowned walks including the path up to Simon's Seat. Although the villages are a popular destination for visitors, they are locally better known for their particularly strong community, with a high number of owner-occupiers living there and a thriving fraternity spirit at both their pubs (The Craven Arms and The New Inn) with many events scheduled at Appletreewick Church and Village Hall. Families living in the hamlet benefit from being within the catchment area for Skipton's Grammar Schools and Upper Wharfedale Secondary School, as well as having a well-endorsed OFSTED Primary School at nearby Burnsall.  

Located towards the end of a peaceful No Through Road, White House Barn has all the feeling of being truly in the countryside and yet is only 9 miles north of Skipton. Dating back we understand to 1601 and still retaining many of its original features including some wonderful old beams, exposed stonework and stone corbels, White House Barn has been sympathetically converted and designed to maximise on its magnificent position - to the north there are beautiful bracken fields and moors, whilst to the south, where most rooms face, there are stunning views across farmland and over the Wharfe Valley to Simon's Seat. With oil-fired central heating and double glazing, the accommodation is planned on two floors and is described in brief below using approximate room sizes:-
