Thea’s Cottage sits quietly in the tiny hamlet of Satron just less than a mile from Gunnerside in the heart of Swaledale. The cottage is the perfect option for three couples sharing with a spacious and well equipped farmhouse kitchen/diner, cosy lounge with wood burner and three bathrooms to choose from. The cottage bears little resemblance to its former self with the owners painstakingly and thoughtfully renovating the cottage preserving its character features yet adding modern conveniences for enhanced comfort during your stay. The views from the rear of the cottage look out towards the River Swale and countryside beyond, and a quiet patio area to the front is the ideal spot to enjoy when the weather allows. With Gunnerside just under a mile away and Muker in the other direction has a tea room and shop.
