Description

South View Cottage is a single-storey cottage with the bedrooms at opposite sides of the property and the kitchen/living area in the middle, providing ideal accommodation for couples and families. The beautiful tiered garden offers great countryside views and is an ideal area for alfresco dining.
There is a wonderful countryside walk from the doorstep that goes around Hornby Castle and deer park. The small village of Tunstall is the perfect location to get out and explore the Yorkshire Dales, with the popular market town of Richmond only a 10-minute drive away, with its cobbled streets, top quality restaurants, bistros and coffee shops, as well as antique shops, art galleries and a small cinema. Just 3 miles away is the Coast to Coast path, perfect for the keen cyclist. 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.
There are many pretty Yorkshire towns and villages to visit, including Thirsk, Ripon, Northallerton and Leyburn. There is also the Yorkshire Heritage Coast, the Gothic fishing town of Whitby and the picturesque Robin Hood’s Bay. Other places of interest include the cathedral city of Durham, just over half an hour away, historic Barnard Castle and the medieval walled city of York, with its cobbled streets and tourist attractions.

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.
