This stone-built, Grade II listed, detached former school house is situated in the secluded village of Gunnerside, just 5 miles from Reeth in the Swaledale Valley. It is an ideal cottage for a family or a group of friends to get together and enjoy a perfect break. This unique property dates back to the 17th century and has high quality fixtures and fittings, contemporary furnishings, exposed beams throughout and lovely views across the valley to the surrounding Yorkshire Dales countryside.
It seamlessly combines many of the original features, such as the stone-built bread oven, exposed stone floor and the lovely old beams with modern and luxurious styling. A real home from home, there is a beautiful farmhouse-style kitchen, a living room with cosy wood burner which leads off the kitchen and there is a snug, again with wood burner to sit and relax by. Also on the ground floor is a handy bedroom with single bed and single pull-out bed, as well as a shower room.
An open staircase leads off the kitchen to the master bedroom with its old beams and en-suite with corner bath. Upstairs, two of the bedrooms boast fabulous views whilst the third double bedroom includes a lovely en-suite shower. The main bathroom has a luxurious feel, with a gorgeous double-ended slipper bath and separate shower cubicle. The views of the River Swale can be enjoyed from the south-side windows of the house, and the south-facing garden provides all day sunshine in the summer. Relax on the patio and enjoy a refreshing drink or maybe dine al fresco using the Weber barbecue.
The village of Gunnerside is a typical Dales village with traditional stone-built cottages set around the river bridge, an old working smithy and, of course, the local pub which provides local ales and great food, along with a lovely meeting place for the locals and holidaymakers to all mix and create a very special atmosphere. The cottage is situated in a prime location for touring around the area, especially visiting places in Upper Swaledale from Healaugh to Tan Hill, including Angram, Ivelet, Feetham, Keld, Low Row, Muker, Satron Reeth and Thwaite. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 150 yards.
