'We had a very enjoyable week in Swallowdale over Christmas 2018. The cottage is beautiful - very spacious, very warm, amazingly well stocked kitchen (more pans than I have at home!), spotlessly clean, spectacular views in all directions, lots of Christmas decorations displayed for us, and numerous red suqirrels, and many interesting birds feeding right next to the back door! Thank you to the owners for your generosity in leaving us both a welcome tray, and several special things for Christmas. The Christmas head bands and crackers were especially enjoyed by our grand-daughter! The adults loved the wine and chocolates! We cannot think of anything negative to say, and highly recommend this property. We will try hard to return for another holiday!'
Loved everything about this cottage. Particularly enjoyed feeding the birds and red squirrels. We'll definitely be coming back.
Fantastic place to observe birds and red squirrel.
Very nice clean well equipped cottage. Teabags and biscuits left as a welcome but milk would have been appreciated to go with it, as a drive away to nearest shop.
At the rear of the property stands Shaw Gill Wood where a succession of waterfalls cascade down the valley towards Hardraw Force, a spectacular waterfall at the foot of the Buttertubs' Pass. Scenic walks can be enjoyed literally from the doorstep. The Simonstone Hotel which has a bar and restaurant is a few steps away from Swallowdale. The nearby market town of Hawes (2 miles) has local shops, craft and antique shops as well as a selection of pubs, tea rooms and restaurants.
The charming market town of Hawes has been around as far back as 1307 and is still delightinng visitors to this day. Standing between Buttertubs and Fleet Moss, the name Hawes literally means 'a pass between mountains' and the town's beautiful setting in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales means you're never far from a breathtaking view and ideally located to access many of the Dale's most popular visistors attractions. The town's market is held every Tuesday selling a great selection of locally produced food and drink, however if you can't wait until then to sample some of the area's lovely food- pay a visit to the the Wensleydale Creamery, located just on the outskirts of the town to see how the famous cheese is made (and try a bit for yourself!). For lovers of the outdoors, there are many fantastic walks in the area such as the Hawes Mosaic Trail and circular walks to nearby Aysgarth Falls, a stunning waterfall over limestone steps.
