Luxurious and unique, Swaledale House promises guests an unforgettable stay in one of the UK’s most beautiful locations, with views for miles across the Swaledale countryside!
Everything about this house is spectacular from its comforting underfloor heating under foot to its elegant, glamorous lighting overhead, and everything in between! From its majestic views and glorious garden and terrace, to its stylish and sophisticated interiors, you will be made to feel right at home right away! This cosy living room makes for a beautiful heart of the home, with plush sofas set around an elegant fireplace and two soft seats by the picture windows. Then there’s the incredible bespoke kitchen, with a huge range cooker, fabulous appliances and sleek monochrome design. For the more playful among you, you’ll find games consoles and even table football in the snug, and at quite the other end of the spectrum, there’s a study area too – for getting a little work done, penning a postcard or perhaps getting a moment of peace to read the paper!
Head up to the first floor to this luxurious master suite, with its stargazing skylight, rainfall shower and even a private dressing room, it’s undoubtedly the finest room in the house. But by no means the only luxurious one! Each of these three rooms is sumptuous and inviting, with soft, subtle tones all delightfully warmed by the natural light flowing in through vast windows. The other two rooms feature superb twin beds which can be prepared either as twins or super-kings, to accommodate groups of all shapes and sizes. Finally there’s a delightful family bathroom to complete this beautiful array of rooms.
For total peace and tranquillity, take a seat on your gorgeous terrace, or on the lawn at this fabulous picnic bench and admire these sweeping views out across the Swale valley! There are countless wonderful options for a casual coffee, a fine alfresco dining experience or even a picnic on these wonderful lawns! And for something even cosier, head into your beautiful summer house, complete with comfortable seating and outdoor games and the same breath-taking views across the valley! And then, when you’re ready for an adventure, simply set off out your front doors in any direction and you’re sure to find a beautiful walking route!
One of the northernmost Dales in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Swaledale is an utterly beautiful place for a retreat among the rolling hills, wildflower meadows and sweeping valleys. At its heart is the quaint village of Reeth, bursting with cafes, pubs and craft shops perfect for a mooch and some refreshments. Yorkshire breweries produce some of the world’s finest ale so be sure to try one or two in the local pubs.
Just a few minutes form the house is the Swale Trail mountain bike trail, stretching between Reeth and Keld and suitable for young cyclists and with bike hire available nearby! Indeed, the Yorkshire Dales are a rural paradise for walkers, cyclists or simply anyone who enjoys the fresh air, peaceful countryside and friendly locals. Wherever you head in this expansive National Park, you’re sure to meet a friendly face to point you in the right direction, recommend a village pub or let you in a few local secrets.
Like all of Yorkshire, the walking paths in the Dales criss-cross infinitely, leading you up gentle sloping hills and through winding valleys, alongside coursing rivers and meandering streams. The roads are equally winding, taking you through the luscious green landscape in the most scenic ways, passing through each quaint village and past countless barns and curious livestock.
North Yorkshire is one of the UK’s most beautiful counties, home to the two vast National Parks of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, and bursting with history and tradition. Across the two national parks you’ll find dramatic landscapes like that of Malham Cove, incredible scenery at every turn and always a warm welcome.
There are two cities in the county: York and Ripon, the latter of which is in fact the oldest city in England. Both are deeply historical, teeming with glorious architecture including their Minster and Cathedral respectively, and winding cobbled streets. Meanwhile, the endless villages that can be found in nearly every valley are undoubtedly worth visiting. Pop in for a pint and get to know the friendly locals at the village pub or try out the many quaint cafes.
Dotted across the breath-taking landscape of North Yorkshire are a series of striking examples of former abbeys, mostly now ruins. The most famous (and deservedly so) are Fountains Abbey near Ripon and Bolton Priory at the southern tip of the Dales, right at the entrance to the National Park. Complete with a rather lovely café and ice cream shop and set on the riverside amid thriving forests and rolling hills, this is worth a visit for its magnificent location alone!
