Step into adventure when staying in this fantastic cottage, heading out each day to explore hikes around the Yorkshire Dales and returning home at night to experience quality relaxation together. This premier holiday-home choice can be found in the Swaledale village of Thwaite, a traditional place with winding streets filled with stone-built terrace cottages. Pack up your picnic bag and walking boots to discover adventure close by, perhaps viewing the scenery from atop Buttertubs Pass (2 miles) or Great Shunner Fell (3.5 miles). Thwaite itself sits on a juncture of the incredible Pennine Way (less than 500 metres), offering you the chance to walk or cycle a portion of this dramatic route. Follow the route up to Keld (2.5 miles) and pass by the Kidson Force waterfall or venture down into Wensleydale and visit the nearby town of Hawes (6.5 miles).

Cosy and compact, this two-bedroom accommodation offers a truly welcoming space to call your own. As you enter, you can stow coats and boots in the handy cupboard under the stairs. The ground floor is made up of a comfortable lounge/diner and a cheerful kitchen, the latter of which has been thoughtfully equipped with everything you may need for the duration of your stay. The lounge features an original feature fireplace with an open fire, a Bluetooth speaker, Smart TV and DVD. Upstairs you’ll find two bedrooms, both featuring authentic wooden beams. One is a king-size and one has zip-and-link beds which can be made into a super-king-size on request. A family bathroom completes the space.

At the front of the property, you'll find a charming patio space with a low-stone wall and patio seating, the perfect spot for watching village life pass by as you enjoy your morning coffee.

We had a week of very wet and windy weather during our New Year stay at The Cottage, but the house was always a warm and comfortable refuge from conditions outside.

The Cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Thwaite and the surrounding area is beautiful and great for walking. The website was fairly straightforward and we would certainly consider using again.
