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.
