Escape to this enchanting hobbit-style getaway in Yorkshire’s Swaledale Valley, boasting scenic surroundings alongside a stylish interior. This holiday home is something special, crafted with sustainable materials, and would be perfect for a couple’s break or a small family retreat. When it comes to natural beauty, Kisdon Force, East Gill Force and Wain Wath Force are all waterfalls within a mile of this retreat and the popular Pennine Way passes by too, offering a great way to discover this fantastic landscape on foot. More wonderful local attractions include Beldi Hill Lead Mine, Buttertubs Pass, Old Gang Smelting Mill and Cotter Force, all within 9 miles. When it comes to picking up supplies and dining out, you’ll find a lovely pub and village store in nearby Muker, 3 miles down the road, or the market town of Hawes boasts shops, restaurants and pubs and is 8 miles away.

After climbing the external steps and heading inside, you’ll quickly be enchanted by this lovely retreat. The interior offers contemporary furnishings, views through the circular door of the Swaledale hillside, and underfloor heating to keep you toasty and warm during the cooler months. The kitchen boasts all the essentials, including a hob, oven, fridge and microwave, plus built-in seating and a built-in wine rack too – it’s been very thoughtfully laid out so guests can relax with everything to hand. After days out exploring, settle in the seating area to catch a film on the Smart TV, or play your favourite tunes on the Bluetooth speaker. A built-in king-size bed with USB sockets at the back of the property is a cosy place to rest up each night and this beautiful retreat is completed by a lovely shower room.

This holiday let is located on a working hill farm that breeds Swaledale sheep, and you can go out and meet these inquisitive animals. At the property itself, you’ll have your own decked terrace area with a pretty table and chairs, so you can sit out and dine while soaking in those marvellous views.
