Description

Luxurious and comfortable, Brookside is a wonderful place to enjoy a holiday in the magnificent Yorkshire Dales. Perfectly located in the popular village of Muker, guests will be able to enjoy a very short walk to the excellent local pub and restaurant, as well as the local village tea shop and art gallery. Lovingly renovated to a very good standard and keeping many original features, as well as offering modern appliances and top quality fixtures and fittings, this detached property offers guests a super base from which to enjoy exploring the local area and really getting to know the Yorkshire Dales. For those wanting to enjoy a walking or cycling holiday (bike hire available in nearby Fremington), there are numerous established footpaths, cycle paths and bridleways that lead straight from the village and out into the heart of beautiful Swaledale, Wensleydale and Arkengarthdale, as well as popular villages and towns including Gunnerside, Hawes, Keld, Thwaite, Low Row, Fremington and Reeth, which are all within a 10-mile radius.

There are many local pubs, restaurants and country inns which provide the perfect resting place before, during or after a long walk or cycle. Perfect for guests of all ages, there are many popular attractions to visit including Castle Bolton, Swaledale Folk Museum, Theakstons Brewery, Wensleydale Creamery and The Forbidden Corner. A little further afield but still just 20 miles away, guests must take the opportunity to visit the Georgian town of Richmond or the Yorkshire town of Leyburn, which offers many places to visit including Richmond Castle, theatre and the famous chocolate shop.

Brookside offers high quality accommodation throughout and is perfect for families, couples and friends who wish to holiday together. On the ground floor guests will find a super, open plan lounge and kitchen area with quality fixtures, fittings and furnishings. The lounge is comfortable and well-presented with a cosy wood burner and personal touches, and the kitchen is spacious and well-planned. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one of which is a master bedroom with a king size bed, en-suite and fabulous views across the fells and dales. Relax in the courtyard and enjoy listening to the steady flow of the river which runs opposite the cottage, and the peace and tranquillity of the village.

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.
