The property has been completely refurbished inside and out, and offers a high level of comfort for guests. Downstairs, the spacious living room has a wood burner, large Smart TV and comfortable armchair perfectly positioned in the bay window to relax and take in the views.

The stylish kitchen, with flagged floors and shaker-style units, has all the modern appliances you will need, with a separate utility and boot room. There is also a downstairs shower room.
Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms, all with solid oak beds and furniture, high quality mattresses and crisp bedding for a good nights sleep. There is a luxurious bathroom with super large bath, perfect for a soak after a long days walk, and large walk-in shower for those who prefer.
Outside, to the front is a small terrace with garden bench, a perfect spot to sit with your morning coffee and watch the sheep on the hills beyond. To the rear, a flagged courtyard with smart bistro table and chairs is a sunny spot for catching the afternoon sun and views beyond.
The varied scenery provides miles of walks, both low-level, gentle strolls along the river and more challenging walks with high mountains and valleys lined with streams. There are endless footpaths enjoying the most spectacular scenery. Swaledale is also popular for both mountain and road biking with events being held throughout the year. The Dales Bike Centre is just down the road at Grinton and offers cycle hire. They also have an excellent café where you can enjoy a piece of cake before setting off on your ride.
