About Nell Tom

Welcome to Nell Tom, a spectacular 4-bedroom traditional stone cottage with breath-taking views of Swaledale and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Set in an elevated position above the pretty village of Low Row, this stunning property has been subject to a lavish refurbishment and offers bags of space for the whole family. An outstanding luxury holiday cottage with a location to die for.

Set high on a hillside looking down over Swaledale's trademark meadows peppered with stone barns and dry-stone walls, Nell Tom affords the sort of view you can only dream about. And with its recent re-design and complete refurbishment almost every single room enjoys that view. It's also been given lots of 21st Century touches including underfloor heating and Wi-Fi.

Let's start with the huge kitchen dining space. We love the elegant and classic design in here and the fact that lots of people can move around comfortably in this large space. The kitchen boasts a double American-style fridge freezer, 2 fan ovens, 5-ring hob and a dishwasher. It also has a lovely view right down the Dale from the window above the sink, always good to have something nice to look at when you're washing up! It's also very well equipped with everything you need to cook up a storm for the family.

The lovely dining area has a table which will comfortably seat 12 people and it looks directly out towards the stunning views to the front of the property. There is a handy separate utility down here and a sofa in the corner, a nice area to relax while someone else does the cooking. A downstairs shower room is perfect for walkers to refresh after a hike over the hills and it also houses the washing machine and dryer.

Moving along this fabulously long house to the living areas. There is a very generous sitting room complete with a wood-burning stove, LCD TV with Freeview & a DVD Player. You'll also find lots of family games, books, local info, walking maps and even binoculars for star-gazing to keep everyone entertained. You'll love the sun room area where you can nestle down with a good book next to the gorgeous views. Next door is the main house snug, the perfect spot for children and grown-ups to escape to. It also has an LCD TV and features a DVD Player & DVDS. And if you have young children in your party you rest assured in the knowledge that there are permanent stair gates in the house to keep everyone safe.

Nell Tom has 4 good sized bedrooms, all of which have amazing front aspect views, excellent pocket sprung mattresses and the finest quality bed linen. There are two master bedrooms which have en-suite bathrooms, one with seperate bath and walk in shower overlooking the fabulous views of Swaledale and are set up as super-kings beds In addition, the other two bedrooms can be set up as super-kings or twins as required giving you total flexibility depending on the make -up of your party, both of these bedrooms share a family size bathroom with bath and overhead shower.

And if you think the interiors of this large luxury cottage in Swaledale are impressive, just wait until you step outside. There is a beautiful stone patio which stretches the full length of the house, and another stone seating area just to the side affording lots of shelter to sit down to lunch al fresco. There's also a BBQ available to use. Down a few steps takes you to a sweeping enclosed lawn which is perfect for children to run around on, and rather wonderful for picnics too. The cottage comes with lots of great outdoor toys too. And it goes without saying that pretty much everywhere out here enjoys simply breath-taking views.

Pop open a bottle of champagne and settle down to a fabulous dinner al fresco, surrounded by your nearest and dearest in one of Yorkshire's most stunning locations. What could be more idyllic...

Nell Tom is the sister property to the gorgeous Laykin, just down the hill. This property sleeps 7 and can be booked together with Nell Tom to sleep up to 15 adults comfortably with room for cots. Enquire with us to find out more.

Local Area

Nell Tom has a simply stunning location set high up in Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales. Looking out onto the meadows of Swaledale and the River Swale beyond, the views from the cottage are truly breath-taking. This fabulous holiday home is accessed via a fairly steep road with a few sharp bends, then down a private gravel road, so take your time on the way up. This is Yorkshire after all, so there's no rush!

Nell Tom is set just above the charming village of Low Row which happens to be home to one of the best Gastro Pubs in Yorkshire, The Punch Bowl. It's an excellent option for lunch, dinner or a slap up Sunday roast and is walkable from the cottage, around 15 minutes or so. As long as you don't mind the steep walk back home again.

Just beyond the village is the stunning countryside of Swaledale. The scenery all around is real picture-postcard stuff, with ancient old dry stone barns peppering the dramatic hills and valleys. May sees the annual Swaledale Festival, two weeks of amazing music, art, walking and culture and the delightful Muker show in September is another calendar highlight.

This area of the Dales is also particularly renowned for its spectacular wild flower meadows in the Spring. People come from all over the world to see the fields come alive with every colour under the rainbow, a unique phenomenon due to the fact that the local farmers don't use chemicals on the fields. But every season has its charm, from the lush green summers to the dramatic and beautiful winters.  And with no street light pollution for miles around the stars at night are dazzling.

It's a true walker's paradise here and there are some beautiful walks literally from your doorstep.  The circular walk around Blades is lovely and the famous Coast to Coast route passes nearby.

And of course this is supreme cycling country, with the recent Tour De France passing right below Nell Tom. You'll see a lovely reminder of it on the drystone wall to the left of the cottage. With lockable bike storage available why not challenge yourself and some friends to take on the mighty Buttertubs Pass, just a few miles away.

We also recommend taking a tour of the Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Dales Trail, a circular route which takes you through some of the most dramatic scenery in the UK. This land of Viking place-names, waterfalls, rivers and ravines is like nowhere else on the planet - don't forget to take the camera. And on the way back down you can stop for lunch at The Tan Hill (highest Pub in Great Britain) or head on round to the fantastic CB Inn, a real foodies pub with amazing views.

We had a wonderful family get together at Nell Tom. We all loved the views and the local walks. It was great to be able to set off straight from the house. We Enjoyed eating 'at home' and found the kitchen so well equipped even for real foodies like us.
The lawn was great for games and what a backdrop! Our young member of the party loved rabbit spotting .. There were plenty hopping about.
The beds were huge and super comfy with lovely bedding too.
We even managed the challenging bend in one go! ( probably not recommended). We loved the peace and quiet of the location.... The only noise was us having fun! ( oh yes and the sheep)
My husband loved sitting in bed with his morning cuppa taking in the views from both windows.
Yorkshire is a beautiful county and Nell Tom is the perfect place to stay to enjoy it.
All in all we had a fantastic time ... We just didn't want to leave.

Nell Tom is a beautifully restored holiday house with the most breathtaking views. It is luxurious, comfortable and a joy to stay in. There are numerous walks from the door, a pub in walking distance and is nestled in a great position to allow you to visit much of Swaledale and Wensleydale. We were two adults and two girls aged 8 and 10 and this is one of the best weeks holiday we have had!

We had an excellent stay at Nell Tom...
The cottage, location and views are amazing....!!!!
During our stay we did have a small issue with the hot water which we assumed was down to the previous days usage.
When we arrived back that evening and we still had no hot water we contacted the host. The response from the host was excellent and within 30 minutes the plumber was at the property.
Unfortunately the water pump was broken and a new pump could not be sourced until the next day.
The property has a downstairs electric shower... so it wasn't really a problem .
The plumber was back the next morning to replace the pump and reinstate the hot water.
We couldn't have asked for a better response from the host on this issue which was out of thier control as mechanical parts do fail without warning.
We would definitely recommend this property and would love to return in the future.
