Description

This detached lodge is hidden within the grounds of the owner’s caravan park and boasts an en-suite bedroom with a large waterfall shower, private hot tub and a raised decked area, perfect for a peaceful drink and watching the fascinating array of wild birds after a day exploring the delights of the Yorkshire Dales, The North York Moors or the Lake District. Inside, the open-plan living/kitchen area is warmed by a log burner, making it a cosy room to snuggle up with a loved one. Complimentary dressing gowns and slippers are also provided. The tiny village of Newsham is an unbelievable base equidistant between the east and west coasts of England, and a short drive from the famous Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk, which snakes across the country from the Lake District to Robin Hood’s Bay. Just 1½ miles from a main road, which makes it easy to get out and about, or explore one of the many public footpaths right on your doorstep.
The property lies 7 miles away from the popular Georgian market town of Richmond, with its top quality restaurants, bistros and bars, as well as antique and gift shops. There is a farmers’ market that takes place occasionally on the cobbled market square, as well as numerous tourist attractions to visit including the historic castle that stands high on the hill and overlooks the thriving town below. Also perfect for walkers and cyclists, are many established public footpaths and cycle ways that pass through Kirby Hill and out through open fields, woodland and unspoilt countryside, and further beyond into the famous Yorkshire Dales. Hamsterly Forest is only 13 miles away which is excellent for mountain biking. Within easy reach are many historic houses and National Trust properties.
Barnard Castle is always popular with visitors, where the castle looks down to the tumultuous River Tees below, popular with canoeists, anglers and for riverside walks along the Teesdale Way, Deepdale and Flatts Wood. A haven for discerning shoppers and treasure seekers, the town’s many antique shops provide a charming shopping experience. The Lake District National Park is just a 40-minute drive from Brandy Lodge, and some wonderful natural attractions such as High Force Falls and Brimham Rocks are close by too. The walled city of York is less than an hour away, as is the striking Yorkshire Heritage Coast with its wonderful cliffs, beaches and historic fishing towns such as Whitby. Beach 24 miles. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.

About the local area

The valley of the River Swale begins in the west close, to Nine Standards Rigg, the strange collection of nine stone cairns built on the ridge of the Yorkshire and Cumbria border and runs eastwards to the historic town of Richmond.

Although one of the more remote valleys, it has a wealth of villages and hamlets to visit and explore and is a great favourite with fell walkers.

Indeed, Alfred Wainwright's famous Coast to Coast walk passes along Swaledale, but for those who don't want to make that full journey, there is plenty of peace and beauty to be had here.

This is also James Herriot country and fans of TV's All Creatures Great and Small might well recognise nearby Arkengarthdale from the show's title shots. The valley was also formerly the centre of the local lead-mining industry.

Along Swaledale lie the villages of Muker, where a Bronze Age burial was discovered and Gunnerside, a centre for the traditional dry-stone walls and stone-built barns and houses that are such a distinctive feature of the Yorkshire Dales.

Reeth, known as the capital of Swaledale, is the starting point for many of the most popular Dales walks and has three pubs!

Running parallel with Swaledale, to the south, is Wensleydale and the two are joined by the dramatic Buttertubs Pass, a high moorland road that passes crags and waterfall as it leads from one dale to the other.
