About the property

Cabin in Threshfield, Nr. Grassington, Yorkshire, England - Swedish Lodge, With Veranda, Overlooking The Hills Of The Yorkshire Dales

Brazengate is two bed-roomed, extremely comfortable, lodge in Wharfedale, sleeping four people. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, plus plenty of storage space for your clothing. A door leads onto the veranda, with a garden area which attracts a wide range of bird life, plus regular visits from the local pheasants. Keep the bird feeders full, and you will see many beautiful birds. If up early in the morning, you might be lucky enough to see a deer outside.

The second bedroom is equipped with single beds, and an en-suite shower room. The main living room has a door onto the veranda, where you can relax on warm days, either watching the bird life, or maybe having a barbecue. The house is very warm and cosy, having been designed and made in Sweden, and is therefore perfect for an anytime of year holiday.The veranda runs across the whole of the front of Brazengate, and you will find a garden table and chairs for your relaxation.

Our kitchen/dining is very well equipped, with microwave, dishwasher, and large fridge freezer, and has everything you need to prepare a tasty evening meal, that's if you are not out sampling the many excellent eateries in the area.

Centrally located in this beautiful part of the National Park, there are lovely walks from the doorstep, whilst nearby is the popular village of Grassington, with its cobbled square and wide range of shops and pubs serving good food. On site there is a pub serving food every evening, which is only a few minutes walk from your door - no need to drive!

An attractive leisure centre is on site, at extra cost, with swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and sauna. Therapies can also be booked for a holiday treat. The leisure centre also has coffee and light snacks available. It is possible to book a weekly pass when staying at Brazengate.

For food shopping, Skipton, twelve miles south of Brazengate, has three supermarkets, and a wide range of other shops. There is also a large market on various days throughout the week, which is well worth a visit. For more local shops, Grassington, 1.5 miles away, has a Spar shop, a deli and a wine shop, plus of course a range of shops selling outdoor clothing, gifts, clothes etc. Grassington is a quaint village, with its cobbled streets, and a wide number of eating places, varying from local pub food, cafes, fish and chips, plus a very good Indian takeaway. There is also a Tourist Office, where you can find out much more about the area, and places to visit. Wharfedale is a very beautiful area, and there are so many places to visit and enjoy. I am more than happy to help with suggestions which fit in with your interests. Just give me a ring and I'll answer any of your questions about either Brazengate, or the area of Wharfedale.

Sorry, but we do not accept dogs.

About Dot Childs

My husband and I live in the south of England, but whenever possible we drive north for some restful time in the Yorkshire Dales. Our family are now grown up, but they too spend time visiting Brazengate, as they spent so much time there whilst growing up, and have many wonderful memories going back over many years.

Dot Childs purchased this cabin in 1980

Why Dot Childs chose Threshfield

As a child I spent many happy hours in the Dales, and when we moved away from the area we decided that it would be important to us to have a place to visit in the area. We were lucky enough to buy Brazengate, which is in such a beautiful part of Wharfedale. It is such a peaceful place to be, with access to many excellent walks, and the countryside around which is truly beautiful.

What makes this cabin unique

Brazengate is ten miles from market town of Skipton, which is a pretty spot, with a canal and castle. It is possible to have an active holiday visiting towns such as Harrogate and York, plus the more northern villages of the Dales such as Hawes and Leyburn. Alternatively, you can walk for miles over beautiful countryside, with varied scenery, and walks to suit everyone, from serious walkers to those who look for something less demanding.

At the end of the day, you can take a swim and sauna in the on site pool. (for an extra charge), followed by a barbecue in front of Brazengate., overlooking the hills in the distance.

Lovely and homely lodge in great location

  • 5 of 5

Fully enjoyed our stay here. The lodge has everything you need. As other reviews say, it’s like a home from home. The lodge is 30 yards from the swimming pool complex which was ideal for our two year old. All in all a great location for the Yorkshire dales.

Very clean. Had everything you needed.

  • 4 of 5

It was the covered veranda that sold it to me. It was so practical, we were not restricted indoors when it rained. We loved it. Bought seed to encourage wildlife. We found it to be a peaceful place. No noise at all. Made good use of the bbq

A warm and inviting cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable week at this cabin. We enjoyed the extra entertainment available; such as a DVD collection and even did a 1000 piece jigsaw. Having the Long Ashes pool a 1 minute walk away was a real bonus and we used it every morning with our 6 year old. The weather was a little grey and rainy during our trip, but you can't have everything!

The cabin itself is comfortable, well equipped and felt like a home away from home. We enjoyed our stay here very much. Thank you Dot!

very peaceful

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely place to stay, the site was very peaceful and it was a good area for visiting many of the lovely places around eg.Grassington, Bolton abbey, Aysgarth falls, Pateley bridge. Not to far to drive to Skipton and Ilkley. Saw lots of birds out of the windows that came every day so bird seed is a must. It was very clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a home from home. We just thought the site could do with a small shop providing the small necessities that we all run out of, bread milk etc. there is a Spar in Grassington but my mum is 83 and the walk was too far so a car is definately needed. But that was the only downside. Well worth a visit.

Nearest Train
12 Miles
Car: recommended


Brazengate is almost equidistant between the east and west coast of England. To the west it would be about one and a half hours drive, and to the east it would be around two hours. The Lake District would be a drive of one and a half hours.

Blackpool and Morecambe are on the west coast, and on the east coast you could visit the towns of Bridlington, Scarborough and Whitby.


The nearest airport would be Leeds/Bradford, which would be a drive of just over one hour from Brazengate.

Use of car is strongly recommended.


Grassington - 1.5 miles

Skipton - 10 miles

Harrogate - 25 miles

York - 40 miles

Hawes -

Further Details:

Skipton is a good place for food shopping, with a large Morrison's and a large Tesco store, whilst nearby Grassington has a selection of smaller shops, with a Spa shop, deli, post office and and butchers. There are numerous pubs in the area serving good quality food. There is a Tourist Office in the large car park in Grassington too, with many pamphlets about local attractions.

There are many villages to explore within the Dales, each with its own character. Driving north from Long Ashes, the countryside becomes wilder and the drive over to Hawes is like being on top of the world, with views of Peny Ghent, and hills stretching as far as you can see.In Hawes you can visit the Wensleydale Cheese Factory, and watch the cheese being made.

Driving southwards, the countryside is more gentle, and a short drive away you can visit Bolton Abbey, set in a tranquil setting by the River Wharfe. In all these areas there are many superb walks. Brazengate has a book and pamphlets with walks so that you can choose the level you want.

If you wish to explore further away from the area, the city of Leeds is approximately an hour away, with many attractions. Also an hour away is the city of Bradford, with the photographic museum, wonderful curries, and just outside Bradford, is Salts Mill, which is now a World Heritage Site.

Skipton has a castle, canal boat trips, and a market which is there four days a week, along the main street.

Equally, it is possible to walk from Long Ashes to the local village of Grassington, over the hills to Kilnsey, or for a much longer walk,for keen walkers, to leave Brazengate to walk to Malham with its glorious tarn and Cove.

There are too many places to mention here, but I would be very happy to recommend different areas when speaking to you, if you let me know your particular interests.
