Situated between Gunnerside and Muker, deep in the beautiful countryside of Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Oxnop Cottage offers you a very warm Yorkshire welcome. As a working hill farm, the cottage is surrounded by its own land... here you can enjoy true peace and tranquillity and breath-taking views of the stunning Swaledale.
This is a holiday cottage steeped in history with some date-stones showing 1685 although the property probably dates back a century earlier. Its mullion windows and beamed ceilings contrast with the contemporary kitchen providing modern day facilities. The en suite shower rooms to both bedrooms add to the comfort of this cosy cottage.
Oxnop Cottage is situated 1.5 miles from the popular villages of Muker and Gunnerside, which have a variety of tea rooms, craft workshops and pubs which serve good food. This property makes a superb base to explore the surrounding areas and the numerous attractions that the Dales has to offer.

The cottage's location is ideal for walkers, and we were were to do several excellent walks over 6 miles directly from the cottage. Views from the cottage are stunning and it is set on a relatively quiet hillside farm. The cottage is well kept and modernised. It's a longish drive to a supermarket so either factor that it or bring what you need from home. Local village stores have a few things like milk (but get there early). There is no mobile phone signal and the wi-fi connection speed is very slow, and sometimes unusable. The quietness of the location is only marred by two yappy, small dogs (not the farm's other working dogs).
We had a wonderful stay, in a gorgeous cottage, in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you!
Excellent authentic farm cottage. Very well furnished and equipped. Views of Swaledale magnificent. Very well equipped property, very clean and comfortably furnished. Great potential for rear garden area to be a paved/decking patio - overlooking magnificent view of Swaledale, positively under utilised facility - a future project for owners? Very pleased though with property overall.an authentic historic farm cottage - loved it!
This is a lovely well equipped cottage. The local area is beautiful to explore. There are many good pubs to eat out in providing home cooked food.
A very well and comprehensively equipped property.
This quaint little village in Swaledale used to be known for its lead mining however now it provides a tranquil and convenient base for touring the Yorkshire Dales National Park. If you're visiting the village be sure to talk a walk to Gunnerside Gill, a narrow, rocky gorge where signs of the village's industrial past can be seen. Walkers will be pleased with the village's convenient location on the Coast to Coast walk, with the local pub, The King's Head, making the perfect pitstop for refreshments during the day or meals on an evening. The popular market town of Leyburn is just 30 minutes away by car, where you'll find a fantastic range of shops, cafes and attractions to enjoy.
