One unit is Bridge View Cottage, which is in Gunnerside, about 5 miles downdale from Thwaite. Sleeping 2 people, the cottage is newly refurbished, with luxury linen and towels, comfy sofa, and charming kitchen and bathroom. An upside down layout, the cottage has lovely views towards the beck from the window seat upstairs in the living/dining/kitchen (ideal for watching for the mobile fish and chip van!). The kitchen is well-equipped, and the Bridge View Cottage is cosy, with new electric storage heaters and a log-burning stove (first basket of fuel included) for chilly evenings.
The downstairs bedroom is charming and airy, with crisp bedlinen and fluffy towels. The bathroom, with shower over the bath, is next door, downstairs. Lovely little front garden, with bench to sit and relax with a glas of wine, soaking up the Yorkshire sun! Wifi, dogs welcome, and short breaks are welcome, if we can fit them in, and we accept 2 nt bookings, £15 less than 3 nt price. Note, week bookings are FRIDAY to FRIDAY.
Dog-friendly, free wifi, sorry no smoking. Plenty of public parking directly opposite.
Another unit is Joiner' s Cottage, which is a fabulous 18th century cottage set in the tiny, pretty village of Thwaite, in upper Swaledale; Joiner's Cottage is a high-quality haven from the cares of your workaday life. (Note, peak week bookings strictly Fri to Fri). Originally the joiner's shop, the cottage is a spacious, lovely home with character touches such as old beams and a stone fireplace. New windows and doors to the revamped south-facing terrace (now enclosed), multi-fuel stove and contemporary furnishings make the cottage welcoming and snug (all coal included). Fresh decor, a lovely kitchen with high-quality granite surfaces and luxury bath/shower rooms complete the feeling of a home from home.
The living room has comfortable leather sofas, where you can relax in front of the multi-fuel stove, and the dining kitchen is well-equipped. The three bedrooms are upstairs, a double and two twins, along with the family bathroom, with a shower over the bath. Downstairs is a utility/shower room, with a large shower, washing machinen and tumble dryer.
Marvellous views from the living room and suntrap (enclosed) terrace look to the wonderful hills nearby. Sit and relax to the soothing murmur of Stockdale Beck after exploring one of the many walks from the door including the Coast to Coast and Pennine Way walks. As Wainwright said, "...the promised land of Swaledale, the foot of our personal rainbow, journey's end." Sorry, no smoking. Sleeps 6 . Pet-friendly! Free Wifi! Joiner's Cottage week bookings run from FRIDAY to FRIDAY.
A 2 person discount (one bedroom) of 10% is available on week bookings (sorry, not during peak periods) and short breaks are available (2 nts are £15 less than 3 nt price).
