Property code: OC-DS230

Stay on a working farm deep in beautiful Swaledale ¬– with en-suites to both bedrooms, this historic retreat is perfect for a small family or trio of friends seeking peace and tranquillity. With chunky exposed beams and two outdoor areas, relaxing won’t be a problem.

Located on a working hill farm between two of the national park’s loveliest villages, this steeped-in-history holiday cottage is surrounded by its own land and offers breathtaking views of stunning Swaledale. Some of the stonework is dated 1685 and the property is thought to date back a century earlier, but its mullion windows and beamed ceilings are complemented by all the contemporary must-haves to make you feel right at home. Kick off your boots in the hallway and step into a modern kitchen housing all the essentials for a fuss-free stay. There’s a farmhouse-style dining suite where you can enjoy tasty home-cooked dinners and discuss your day before moving into the lounge. Here, you can stretch out on the sofa, catch up with your favourite TV programmes or spread out the map and make plans. A wood burner-effect electric heater will cast a warm glow over any conversations you have. A handy utility room completes the ground-floor layout and provides access to the garden. Upstairs, you’ll find two bedrooms, each with its own en-suite. In the first, there’s a zip-and-link king-size bed which can, on request, be made up instead as two singles; this spacious room has seating and a washbasin, as well as full facilities in the en-suite shower room. The pretty second bedroom has a single bed and somewhere to sit, as well as its own en-suite shower room. For a breath of clean country air, step onto the patio to the front of the property or spend time in the enclosed garden to the rear – you’ll feel a million miles from home in minutes!

This characterful cottage is 1.5 miles from the villages of Muker and Gunnerside, which have tea rooms, craft workshops and pubs ready to deliver a warm Yorkshire welcome. Take a walk to Gunnerside Gill, a narrow, rocky gorge for evidence of the village’s lead-mining past, or drive the beautiful Buttertubs Pass from the hamlet of Thwaite (3 miles) to the market town of Hawes (10 miles).

A lovely cottage style renovated property. Very cosy and warm. The views from the property are spectacular and just a short stroll from the river Swale where you can enjoy a beautiful riverside walk. The villages close by are lovely to visit, it is like stepping back in time, everything is slower and life is more relaxed. An excellent place to stayRead more if you wish to wind down and relax. We would certainly go again. Hide
