Our 4 cottages are situated in the pretty village of Thwaite in Upper Swaledale, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Pennine Way and Coast to Coast walks pass close by and cyclists can follow the route of Le Tour 2014. The Hunter family have been offering cottage holidays in Thwaite for over 50 years. The present owner lives in the village and is available for that personal service.
Thwaitedale Cottages are an ideal base for walking, cycling or simply relaxing and enjoying the Yorkshire Dales. The holiday cottages are fully equipped for self-catering and have the added benefits of bed linen and towels provided, full central-heating and utilities all included, and a wood-burner or open fire to come home to after a day out in the Dales. Book your cottage for a holiday for 2, romantic retreat or friends and family holiday with 3 bedrooms in East Chapel and West Chapel. Weekly lets or short-breaks.
Swaledale is famous for its sheep, traditional dry stone walls and haybarns. The protected wild flower meadows burst into colour in May and June, with rich Autumn hues from September onwards. It is a beautiful dale with many hill streams that tumble and cascade over waterfalls, and is a magical place to be when the early evening light changes across the hills.
If you fancy a drink or a meal out, The Kearton Hotel in Thwaite provides good food, book in for Evening Meal, or call in for coffee, lunch or a drink. The Farmer's Arms pub in nearby Muker offers a friendly welcome, good beer and bar meals. It's only one mile walking across the fields or by road.
