Situated in the heart of idyllic Swaledale, Roof Farm Cottage offers comfortable accommodation and magnificent panoramic views. Converted from a barn in 2001 this peaceful cottage boasts beautiful décor and modern conveniences within a traditional stone built cottage.
A delightful self-catering holiday cottage
Roof Farm Cottage is a delightful self-catering holiday cottage with spectacular views within walking distance of the quiet village of Gunnerside, Swaledale. Situated within the Yorkshire Dales National Park the cottage offers a south - facing garden, including patio, and commands a stunning view of the River Swale and the rolling countryside with its walled meadows and barns.
An ideal base for exploring the yorkshire dales
The village of Gunnerside is at the heart of Swaledale and is the ideal base for exploring one of the finest unspoilt dales with its famous lead mining history. There is an abundance of breath-taking walks straight from the cottage door, with the Pennine Way and Coast to Coast Path close by.
"In the most northerly of the Yorkshire Dales are some of the best traditional hay meadows in Britain. Swaledale is a stunningly picturesque valley where traditional hay-farming methods have been maintained – no doubt partly on account of the often steep terrain. Locally bred Swaledale sheep leave the meadows in May and return after the grass has been cut in July. This annual routine preserves the golden tapestry of meadow buttercups, threaded with orchids, melancholy thistles and pignut."
